Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful I have a job working for a company that seems to be unaffected by the financial chaos.

I'm thankful I have an intelligent, beautiful, well-adjusted daughter who is a total smart-ass.

I'm thankful that I had the uncharacteristically good sense to quit smoking a couple of years ago.

I'm thankful that folks like you stop by this piss-poor excuse for a blog, read what I write, and remind me how bugus and full of shit I really am.

I'm thankful that the citizens of this country finally woke up and realised that the right wing, evangelical, conservatives were bringing out and pandering to the very worst qualities in America and Americans.

I'm thankful that Barack Obama will be our next president.

I'm thankful that my first wife and I rediscovered the friendship that we completely fucked up by getting married 20 years ago.

But mostly, I'm thankful for my friends. It's been a rough year emotionally and I don't know how I would have come through it without my friends. Some of you blog and tweet and you know who you are. You are awesome. Thank you so much.

My family is a big FAIL for Thanksgiving this year so my daughter, young Galadriel Tanqueray Onassis and I are going over to one of my ex-girlfriend's for Thanksgiving dinner. After I take GTO back to her mom's at 4, I may go to a 2nd Thanksgiving dinner at another ex-girlfriend's house in Raymore. We'll see.

In the meantime, enjoy this meme I poached from average_jane:

1. WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother’s & father’s middle names):
Oliver Francis

2. NASCAR NAME: (first name of your mother’s dad, father’s dad):
Jimmy James

3. STAR WARS NAME: (the first 2 letters of your last name, first 4 letters of your first name):

4. DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal):
Black Bat

5. SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you live):
I don't have a middle name and Independence is a stupid last name.

6. SUPERHERO NAME: (2nd favorite color, favorite alcoholic drink, optionally add “THE” to the beginning):
The Blue Bourbon

7. FLY NAME: (first 2 letters of 1st name, last 2 letters of your last name):

8. GANGSTA NAME: (favorite ice cream flavor, favorite cookie):
Rockyroad Chocolatechip...doesn't sound too gangsta to me.

9. ROCK STAR NAME: (current pet’s name, current street name):
Dash Cedarcrest. Not bad!

10. PORN NAME: (1st pet, street you grew up on):
Greeneyes Haynes. Sounds more like an old bluesman than a porn star. My real porn star name is Lance Peterson.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody and thanks for reading.

mm - Rather than a good Nascar name, "Dick Trickle" strikes me as the worst possible Porn Star name.
