Get it?

And here, in no particular order, and off the top of my head, are some things I’m thankful for.

1. A great marriage. Better than great, actually. Can you call a marriage Epic? Naw, neither one of us are ancient Greeks so that doesn’t feel right. Anyway, it’s great.
2. A job/life that I really love.
3. A clean car! We replaced a whole slew of stuff on Erin’s Accord during a major maintenance kick yesterday. Timing belt, water pump, all the belts, coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, seals, gaskets, spark plugs, ignition wires, balance, rotate, align, and newly turned rotors (soon). It did serious damage to the wallet, but the car is almost back up to brand-new status. After a thorough cleaning today (and I do mean thorough!), it feels, smells, and drives like new, which is something for a 6 year old car with 110K on it.
4. Time enough do do what I love and indulge in learning about all kinds of cool stuff.
5. Hitting a major milestone in my work this week
6. Living in America
7. Finally being done with my studio. I love my new office.
8. The new server host! Thanks again to the inestimable Sean McMains, who so graciously offered hosting. The site is so fast now I can hit “post”, make a change, and hit “post” again within ten seconds. Total joy to be able to blog at will. I know the readers appreciate it as well.
9. My friends
10. The cold weather is finally here. 39 degrees tonight, whoopee!
11. Erin and I are spending Thanksgiving home with just the two of us. We’ve gotten all the fixings for a truly epic dinner (I can say Epic since it’ll be positively Roman in its excess). Turkey, dressing, mashed taters, cranberry sauce (schlorpped from a can, of course), homemade bread, with homemade blackberry cobbler and eggnog ice cream for dessert. We’ll spend all day cooking tomorrow and all night regretting everything we’ve eaten. Got a stock of movies and hot wassil ready to go.
12. The telescope design. It’s slowly developing and it’s going to be a real beauty.

So how about you? The comments are open. 🙂
