My list of things to be thankful for:.

9:02 am, November 25, 2004

- A full roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.
- Downloaded U2 album and Nirvana Boxed Set
- 250 MB of space on my Hotmail account
- Not having a governor until Christmas or later
- An empty bathroom and a clean toilet (yes, I have to poop as we speak)
- A day off and 13 hours of sleep last night
- Massive amounts of touchdowns by Reggie Wayne to propell me to a victory over Kon in Fantasy Football
- The ability to Prarie Dog like no other
- My MP3 player rocking all ass around town
- Red Stripe Jamaican Lager
- Moving out in a month and a week
- Knowing what I'm getting for Christmas (Simpsons Seasons 4 and 5, Looney Tunes Golden Collection 4-DVD set Volume 2, Family Guy Series)
- Passing gas, providing me a stay of execution for another five minutes
- Plenty of John Wayne stamps to send my brother letters (P.S. it takes about a fucking week to get these letters through the fucking US government)
- Seattle Supersonics 11-2; Portland Trailblazers 6-5 (SUCK ON THAT, NATE!)
- Lube
- Highway 99 when I-5 sucks flakey balls
- Having no hair means I have no dandruff
- Long Johns, so I can run in the cold weather
- My sphincter can bench press 145 pounds; my poop doesn't stand a chance
- Having a pen in my billfold so I can write out story ideas while I'm driving, thereby making me the most hazardous driver on the freeway WITHOUT a cell phone
- The O.C. mouse pad
- $50 dollar rebate for MP3 player
- No Rain (the weather, not the song; though I'll take any opportunity I can to flout Sublime and tout Blind Melon for being the better of the two bands with the overdosed lead singer)
- High School Girls (I keep gettin' older, they stay the same age)
- White women (What's the secret to happiness?) -- Stop that.
- Colt 45
- Rolling Stone Magazine (Still on the John Kerry issue; I'm still sticking to my ban on anything political or anything news related . . . it's all cartoons and sports from here on out for me)
- Reading Rolling Stone Magazine while taking a shit, which I will be doing shortly (I'm sorry sir, that book has been red-flagged)
- and finally, Wilco, for putting out the best album of 2004 with "A Ghost is Born" (download - "At Least That's What You Said" & "Company In My Back" & "The Late Greats")

With honorable mentions to:

The Mooney Suzuki - Alive and Amplified (download - "Shake That Bush Again" & "Alive and Amplified")
Pearl Jam - Live at Benaroya Hall (download - "Masters of War" & "25 Minutes To Go")
Modest Mouse - Good News for People Who Love Bad News (download - "Bury Me With It")
The Prodigy - Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (download - "Memphis Bells")
Green Day - American Idiot (download - "Jesus of Suburbia")
The Hives - Tyrannosaurus Hives (download - "B is for Brutus")
The Killers - Hot Fuss (download - "Midnight Show")
Franz Ferdinand (download - "Auf Achse")
Bumblebeez 81 - The Printz (download - "Pony Ride")
The Walkmen - Bows + Arrows (download - "Little House of Savages")

I tried not to include the singles in these recommendations, but with the Mooney Suzuki I had to. It's too fucking good.

Eat turkey and sleep plenty, people. I'm gonna go relieve my tired bowels now.

Current Mood: You never hear it on the radio
Current Music: U2 - Miracle Drug

Yeah, you'll notice I wasn't thankful for family, good health, this here roof over my head or that there food on my table. Sometimes these things slip my mind, but there are two things I forgot to be thankful for:

Preperation H and Preperation H Raymond.
