Happy Thanksgiving!!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
For all you in the US, happy thanksgiving. We should remember to reflect on what's important to us, especially in these uncertain times.

To all you in the rest of the world: celebrate with us. A world day of thanks should be in order at some point and now is as good a time as any.

So what are you thankful for? I'm thankful that I live in the US, where I can disagree with everything the gov't does and not be scared of imprisonment. I'm thankful for my good fortune. I'm thankful that AI is finally back

[edit: I forgot to add that I'm thankful that despite how bad Star Wars EI was, the fight scene with Qui Gon, Obi Wan and Darth Maul still kicks ass...]

Hey, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

What I'm thankful for:

- A close, loving family that - even though I'm 3,000 miles away from them, it's like they're all right beside me here tonight.

- That I live in a country that - flawed as it can be on many levels - essentially WORKS, and that I can go to bed each and every night relatively free from fear, worry and so forth.

- I'm thankful for the men and women who, at this moment, all around the world, wear the uniform of our military and through various operations and posts, help make my first item above possible. Think about them for a moment as you're sitting down with friends and family tomorrow. Don't take that security blanket for granted.

- I'm thankful for being healthy and having two legs and two arms and a good set of peepers.

- I'm thankful for being blessed with skills and talents, in both art and music, that many people would give their left lung to possess. I try not to take it for granted and use them everyday, even if only for my own amusement or giggles.

- I'm thankful for a company like Apple that, in a indirect way, got me into the career I'm in, so I'm able to make a good living doing something that I'd do for free...or as a hobby, regardless.

- I'm thankful for my always faithful and trusty iMac, which stores - at this point - basically my entire life: music, songs, stories, writings, ideas, my finances, drawings, art, design, hopes, fears, innermost personal thoughts, the tools of my trade and a whopping, kick-ass collection of mp3s that help get me through the days.

- So, in light of that, a special shout-out to iTunes

- I'm thankful in that although I don't have gazillions of friends and layers and layers of buddies, hangers-on, etc., I am blessed with four of the best friends any schmo like me could ever hope to have. And they know who they are. And all my other buddies and co-workers and auxiliary friends (for lack of a better word) too.

- I'm thankful for my cable modem

- I'm thankful for Waterfall Clean Irish Spring soap

- I'm thankful for Dr. Pepper, the best soft drink that's ever existed and was personally touched by the hand of God

- I'm thankful that I don't smoke and don't have any truly harmful addictions or vices

- I'm thankful for a pretty righteous head of hair that, if not attached to this face, could probably get me into the movies

And last but not least, I'm so very thankful that my favorite Mac message board/forum is back up and operational...just in time for the long, boring winter and MWSF.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

I'm thankful for my health.....my relative safety.......the fact my car hasn't died again in the past 3 weeks......and the fact I have a wonderful girlfriend who is a Spanish PJ Harvey.

And lots of other things....

Ageed. May everyone have a safe and satisfying holiday (almost sounds like a condom ad or something)...as for what I'm thankful for, too much stuff to list but:

Most of what pscates is thankful for, I am thankful for, except that my family is no longer thousands of miles from me (at one time, my parents were in Asia, sister in Europe, brother in southern US, two brothers in western US and myself in Iowa -- it was messed up). Also I do not have an iMac or Cable modem, but I'd definitely ante up for the latter if AT&T would get their shite together.... <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Also thankful for my God-given ability to learn and play the game of hockey, because it's the best damn sport on earth...

...and for one of my freelance jobs, which gets me free software...

...and for Eskimo Pies, Rosati's pizza and good beer of course....

...and all kinds of other good things, which as 'cates alluded to, might or might not've been possible without the gift of being born in the good ole U.S of A.

Cheers everyone. *missing the beer mug smiley*

Happy turkey day, everyone!

I made <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/starfleet/" target="_blank">this little page</a> to say the same to my firends and family.

I'm a little late to the party... but Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I am thankful for the following:
Everything everyone has said above about the U.S. being the greatest fscking country in the world!
Finally making it to college after busting my ass through four years of college. w00t!
Music... I couldn't live without music.
Most importantly, great new friends, great family, and everything we share together.
