Thankful lists

There are quite a few lists of what people on the
internet are thankful for.

From my exhaustive search, I learned a number of quality things:

  1. People are notably more thankful around thanksgiving.
  2. People tend to be very thankful for their family and friends. Either that, or they’re concerned their family might discover their list and question why they’re not on it.
  3. People tend not to be thankful for just being alive. (Or they don’t think to write it down.)
  4. Bloggers like to make lists.

Some of the more intriguing items people were thankful for:

  • Toilet paper (for obvious reasons)
  • The word “spigot”. I like to say it over and over.
  • My electric blanket, foot bag and peppermint mocha creamer for my coffee.
  • I’m thankful that even though I feel like I’m talking to air 99% of the time, I do get a kid who comes back and tells me, “Hey, I actually learned something.” I wish more of them did this.
  • Nacho Cheese Combos
  • That I have 10 healthy toenails.
  • Trash cans
  • That I’m just as excited about a life-sized Malenium Falcom cockpit as J.
