I’m so glad it’s almost chow-down time! This year, I have tons to be thankful for, and I plan on celebrating by spending the holiday with my family and friends over good food, good wine and some seriously intense Wii marathons! Last year I must have worked off my entire Thanksgiving meal within an hour by rivaling my sisters in Wii bowling and fencing…SUCH an awesome way to shed those stuffing calories!
Seriously, though, I have a ton to be thankful for this year, including my amazing friends and family, my new digs and my AWESOME job here at Webfetti, just to name a few. But instead of dedicating this Thanksgiving to the people in my life who I thank every year for their constant love and support, I would like to dedicate this holiday to the people in my life who have made me realize just how lucky I am to have those genuinely good people in my life in the first place.
To you, crazy, lying ex-boyfriend who broke my heart. Thank you for teaching me that not everyone appears to be what they seem. Because of this, I am more appreciative of the people in my life who choose to protect my heart and cherish it, than those who don’t deserve an ounce of my attention. I’ve also realized that you can’t put all of your eggs in one basket, because the basket might turn out to be a pathological liar and then you’ll have no eggs left…and that just sucks.
To you, evil, insensitive co-worker. Thank you for teaching me that beautiful people are not always so beautiful on the inside and that it truly is personality that counts. The fact that you have a sweet boyfriend gives me hope that there really is someone out there for everyone. Also, the fact that I saw you walk out of the restroom with toilet paper on your shoe confirms my belief in karma. Thank you and I wish you the best of luck.
To you, obnoxious gossiping relative who calls way too often. Thank you for teaching me that some things are just better left unsaid. Also, thank you for taking such an interest in my personal life, as I realize you must just be living vicariously through me…which is flattering in a weird way. Also, it’s good to know that there really is ”one in every family.”
Last, but not least,
To you, Facebook friend who feels the need to tag me in horrible, unflattering pictures for the world to see. Thank you for teaching me about the power of the Internet. If it weren’t for you and Perez Hilton, I wouldn’t be as cautious about how I behave in public. Also, you make me thankful for each and every average picture that ends up online. Oh, and you also make me thankful for Photoshop.
That pretty much concludes my backwards Thanksgiving blessings. I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Turkey Day. Sit back, relax and stuff yo’ face. After all, you deserve it.
