One of the groups I belong to for the non-profit sector had a whole tweet day dedicated to things they were thankful for. It was a nice thought but gaggingly boring to follow. These tech people… non-profits in particular ….
Just for the record, I’m thankful every goddamned day and I think about it. Seriously. I’ve somehow managed to get this old with all four limbs intact, most of my own teeth, and vision that is a 1000 times better than I was born with. I’m mostly healthy and strong, have a marriage that is an 88-90 on a 1 to -10o scale after 7 years (last one was about a 22 after 7 years) and a job that I used to like a lot for many years and will soon be leaving.
That last bit is … I’m thankful I believe I can still rally and go get hired somewhere else. I wasn’t thinking that way for awhile. Someone will figure out I’m a jewel and be thrilled to have me and I will be a great asset to their business.
And another thing: I’m so old I’m not going to get H1N1 this year. I like that. A benefit to old age that doesn’t hurt!
