My mother, sisters, and nieces. My in-laws. My friends, including those I've never met in person. A reasonable amount of intellect and curiosity that lets me be a good librarian. An appreciation of an eclectic selection of music. Being born in the United States, where I can freely kvetch about my government - at least so far. Massages. Good food. Technologies that make my life more enjoyable, from the CD-burner to the blog. Watching baseball in October, football in January and college basketball in March. The beauty of arithmetic. My church. Most of all, my wife and my daughter. Happy Thanksgiving! *** Are these really the Five Best Thanksgiving movies? *** The lyrics of Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie. And, Alice's website. *** I hope it isn't true that GALACTUS IS COMING! He eats EVERYTHING.
