Giving Thanks for the Little Things


With Thanksgiving around the corner, I thought I'd list some things I'm thankful for. I'm not gonna bother with the obvious things (family, friends, health, etc.). I'd rather focus on the littler things that bring the little joys to my life (many of which are foods):

ice cream sandwiches, cheese, Gmail chat, Crisp & Juicy, The Onion, Twitter, dimsum, Gatorade, Honey Bunches of Oats, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Popeyes, U-Topia, Jameson's Irish Whiskey, Jack Daniels, Knob Creek, bacon, craigslist, perforated edges, high thread-count sheets, Moleskine notebooks, Pilot Precise pens, foosball, fantasy sports, Everton, the Redskins, Five Guys, costillas, Rafa Nadal, Zooey Deschanel, Fiona Apple, Daniel Day Lewis, Shure headphones, Apple, Microsoft, American Apparel, Converse, Ibuprofen, earplugs, text messaging, Slate magazine, the BBC, NPR, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, David Simon & Ed Burns, dance parties, Skype, electric toothbrushes, mayonnaise,  Old Bay, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Beau Biden, Banana Fana Fo Fiden, butter, Black Cat, Girl Scout Cookies, sunsets, clouds, Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce, Wikipedia, Klean Kanteens, Fatwallet, murses, hoodies, shoe horns, graffiti, Sharpies, Kurt Vonnegut, the National Park Service, Ikea, the Dude and Walter, sand, wind, rain, rocking chairs, Grandma Utz potato chips, YouTube, Hillary Clinton, onion rings, clementines, dark chocolate, Facebook, Bell's Oberon, Hunter S.
