Things to be Thankful For

1. My siblings: James who calls and never fails to amuse me, David who reads and comments on my blog regularly and especially Laurie, who sent me a bunch of Christmas music CDs to get me in the mood for the holiday season.

2. My health: After just getting over a nasty cold, I am once again reminded about how we often take being healthy for granted. Breathing (unimpeded) is such a joy...

3. The fact that the USA has collectively regained its sanity after 8 years of George W. Bush.

4. Craigslist--which has provided me with a new job, new TV and endless hours of amusement...

5. Sweater weather. We're not quite there yet here in Los Angeles--but it's coming!

What are you thankful for this year?


  1. AMEN to Craigslist. I'd be homeless and jobless...and thanks to CL, I'll hopefully be counting a new puppy as my latest find after the New Year.

  2. "sweater weather" -- must be nice. I am already into heavy down parka weather, and long underwear

  3. Yeah, we're weather wimps here in SoCal. Anytime the thermometer dips below 70, it's sweater weather.

    I see you're in Boston? I lived there for two years, so I feel your pain. Damn that wind off the Charles can cut right through you! Wicked cold as you Bostonians would say...
