    Wow, what a great thread. I am thankful for everything right now. My job, my family, my lifestyle. . . That I live in America. We have very much to be thankful for. The beginning of thankfulness spells the end of pessimism. :D

    For Thanksgiving I am having my grandmother from NC for dinner (she is spending the week with me and my family) and my sister, her two boys, and baby girl are coming for the feast. Yup, it will be an awesome time. Ahhh. . . :)

    Pfft... you're all late by a month.

    By which I of course mean Happy Thanksgiving southern neighbors! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

    And I am thankful for American Thanksgiving because of football.

    Not celebrating Thanksgiving until Sunday when our entire family can get together. So I guess it will be about the same thing as every other day.

    Hmm I am gratful that I am stil alive. That and hopefully my writing has improved over the course of November. :D

    Well I am grateful that I am enjoying my writing. :D

    I'll be handing my Family Law essay in, and I'm thankful that I've finished my Family Essay in order to hand it in :p


    On a more serious note, I kind of wish we had thanksgiving here. It's a nice idea for a holiday, and I really don't feel like going outside today anyway.

    And I'm thankful for my beautiful girlfriend, my warm house, being a writer and the fact that I have the opportunity to study at university (an opportunity which future generations are set to lose).

    I'm grateful that I found the writing forum and met all you wonderful people. I've been here for about two years now and I've had ups and downs but mostly ups. I've learned alot about writing and met some very friendly people.

    I've been on other forum sites before and they are often filled with emotionless twits and hateful trolls. It's such a relief to have a place like this to learn and feel relaxed, love you all!:redface:

    Have a happy turkey day if you're american and a good thursday if not:D

    thanksgiving day was yesterday here... i did just what i do every day, since i don't 'do' any holidays and as for this one, i'm consciously thankful for all sorts of things many times a day, every single day, not just once a year... plus, i no longer eat my fellow animals, so have to try not to recall how yummy those poor murdered turkeys were...

    Joel is at work, so I'm home alone, cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my first time ever. *nervous*

    I'm thankful that I was able to relocate to Nevada so I'm able to spend our first Thanksgiving with Joel, and I'm incredibly grateful for modern technology, because I've been Skyping with my family since 9 AM, and it's wonderful.

    Good the day was not a complete bummer, don't forget the mashed potatoes :)

    I'm thankful for cup soup on this cold day.

    ^No mashed potatoes for you, Pallas?

    I've just spent a great day with my family. And of course, I'm so thankful for them.

    I guess I could get some potatoes and smash them, but suffice it to say cup ramen is good enough for this vagabond.

    ^*slides a large bowl of Mama's home made mashed 'taters over to Pallas*
    (I actually had a cup of ramen earlier today :) I was hungry and needed to take the edge off of my hunger. It was good :p I like to let the cup sit in the microwave for a few minutes after nuking it. The noodles get really soggy).

    Thanks for that, and I get an inkling of an axiom of soggy noodles but I'm not sure what, haha.

    I'm grateful for my family, for TLOML (i.e., Steve), for friends who I can count on, for Tylenol extra strength, for air conditioning & trade winds (I'm on vacation right now), and for ice scrapers (to use when I get back home this weekend!

    Oh, I could never forget the mashed potatoes, they're my favorite. :)

    Dinner turned out well, there's still plenty leftover if anyone wants to stop by. ;) And we just ended a 9.5 hour Skyping session. World record?

    Mashed potatoes are the best :D I hope you're not too lonely. I would stop by if I could but I live on the other side of the country. *slides a big piece of pumpkin pie with whipped cream* Enjoy :) One of my mom's best.

    Heh, yes. I think that has to be the world's record for skyping :)

    If you have anything with avocado in it, i'll be on the next flight to Vegas, though I suppose buying some here would be more economical.

    I believe the record is 9.6 hours so no dice. :p
