what I’m thankful for
have a great day, everyone
I spend 364 days of the year bitching and moaning about how fucked to hell everything is. today, I want to talk about what I’m thankful for.
I’m thankful for Ms. Spouse, because she’s put up with my crap for 43 years, and for that she deserves sainthood.
I’m thankful for our daughter, because she’s very easy to brag about, and no parent could ask for more.
I’m thankful for my family, because they’ve been putting up with my crap for longer than Ms. Spouse has.
I’m thankful for my friends, because holy shit, I found a bunch of kindred spirits who are as weird as I am.
I’m thankful for my readers, because without you, I’d be shouting into the wind.
I’m thankful for my commenters, because you’re smart and witty and erudite, and you keep me on my toes — any mistakes or ill-conceived ideas on my part, and you’re right there to school me.
I’m thankful for Judge Chutkan, Judge Engoron, Jack Smith, Fani Willis, Letitia James, and all the people working overtime to make sure that Little Donny Shitler finally faces consequences.
I’m thankful that it’s still legal to mock wingnut dipshittery.
I’m thankful that there will be no MAGAs at my table tonight.
I’m thankful that we live in this weird fucked-up world where a cranky loudmouth like me, with no real plan beyond “Donald Trump is an asshole, and I’m going to troll him mercilessly on twitter,” can turn it into [gestures all around] this.
thanks, everyone. have a great day.
