Things We Don’t Hate

24 Nov


Everyone who isn’t a flaming Liberal is thankful for the obvious things: democracy, family, bacon, etc.  That’s why, this Thanksgiving, Claire and I are concentrating on the meaningless, trivial things that help get us from one day to the next.  Because THAT, my friends, is what the holidays are all about.

  1. TV on DVD, Hulu, Netflix, On Demand…basically TV anywhere other than actual TV
  2. When friends stay logged into Facebook on our computers
  3. Compressed gas spray cans for your keyboard
  4. Ridiculous PR pitches
  5. White wine
  6. Inanimate object Halloween costumes
  7. Red wine
  8. Three-way Gmail Chat
  9. Screw cap wine bottles
  10. Lemon Drops
  11. Drinking at work or during the day (or both)
  12. Gingerbread Shacks
  13. Lady Gaga
  14. Internet access at work
  15. Novelty rap songs like “New York” that we play over and over until we barf
  16. SNL Digital Shorts, especially those you don’t hear about until years after their original airdate
  17. Russia
  18. Dan’s bracelets
  19. The music video for Beyonce’s “All the Single Ladies”
  20. Gmail status fights
  21. Direct deposit
  22. A few Fridays with Evan
  23. Some E-cards
  24. Taylor Swift (just Molly)
  25. Kanye West’s Caps Lock key (just Claire)
  26. Mazall’s Mormon past
  27. YANKEES!
  28. Being able to use Drewpreme as a “source”
  29. Spanx
  30. Unlocking all the songs on Guitar Hero
  31. Advil
  32. The fake David Blaine
  33. Impromptu late-night dress up parties with accompanying photo shoots
  34. Don Draper
  35. That thing you can do on Macs where it will change the webcam background and you look like you are riding on a roller coaster or walking on the Moon.  Even though it never works.
  36. Taking Mene to more baseball games than his Dad did.  And winning them.
  37. This Photo
  38. The Sports Guy
  39. People who still read our blog, even though we never post
  40. Lists

    Who knew we were so grateful?

      I didn’t. In fact, I specifically sent you an e-card the other day calling you ungrateful.

    #15. Im assuming youre referring to the not good “Empire State of Mind ft Alicia Keys” and not “New York” by Rakim.

    The lesson as always WASPY girls know nada about rap (even the rap forcefeed to america by marketing machines)

    #19 – its Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it). I guess anything not Leonard Cohen isnt worth citing accurately

    Sookie knows how to think Ebonically and speak Ivorically. Ladies if you just trusted in #28 you would have saved yourselves from this faux pas and the ire and rancor of Sookie “White Chocolate” Riggs.
