Happy 200

This is my 200th post which is amazing because I am big giant flake - as evidenced in my sudden hiatus. I wasn't planning to take 2 weeks off from blogging - life happened and blogging became increasingly difficult.

Instead of complaining about what has been happening the last 2 weeks (Lord knows, I have much to tell you) - I thought it would be nice to list 200 people/places/things I am most thankful for because this is Thanksgiving week.

EDIT****** - 200 - Cheese and rice - what the hell was I thinking? I could barely come up with 100.

Wow! I get to be #16!!! I'm so honored!!

Um, I'm definitely thankful for the blogging community. It makes living in this gawdforsaken place bearable. And I'm thankful for good friends, good music, good food, and the fact that I can still have all that, despite being broke as hell! And despite all the sad or bad things, it's a pretty good life, and I am thankful I get to live it.

Wow. You are amazingly sweet, and this is a GREAT idea. Look for me to be copying soon. :)

Io said...

This is a good idea. I should think more about all the things I have to be thankful for - like you!
Aw. Now I feel all warm and fuzzy.

Io said...

Oh and 89 made me go F*ck YEAH! Yes we did!

Yay! I'm number 18! Or 19! or BOTH ... lol!

You know what's funny? Is that I'm counting down to my 200th post, too! How cool is that.

As for what I'm thankful for? You, babe. You and all our other bloggie friends that have validated that the crazy infertile thoughts I've had are REAL and justified!
