thankful thursday

26 Nov
  • friends. they make my life what it is and i love them for it.
  • burger joints. the soon to be burger tour. (1) BGR. the concept of burger joints is underrated. the actual place is expensive, yes, and this determines personal utility, but i am your burger+beer hh date kinda girl.
  • public transportation. whereas other cities have none and people are forced to take taxis or drive, i have this convenient thing called metro.
  • my awesome party bus. never ending fun times and yeah, the slammin stories
  • people who drive my butt around town. especially at night. thank you for saving me time and money on the metro and lengthening my night out.
  • my boys that take care of me.
  • my rem team. i’m gonna miss this when its done. football free weekends til spring is gonna be weird.
  • 6/6. done. it went by faster than i’d hoped and we got out early. i love sub teachers.
  • raq. our crazy stories, desserts and wing nights. i love this girl.
  • having an income and living with my parents. it helps me afford my lifestyle.
  • ibuprofen. gatorade. emergen-C.

19 Nov
  • quality control. people who do entry in a consistent fashion so that all entries are alike.
  • mail merging and new-fangled technologies that solve the problem of repetition.
  • arizona green tea. the brilliant combo of HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup) and caffeine.
  • crappy pop. i would be fast asleep at work without it.
  • friends who go out, are not bitter at guys/life or are willing to act like an idiot with me
  • friends that let me crash at their places for the night. especially those with comfy beds/couches.
  • my fball girls for their encouragement and accountability and for sharing their lives and hearts.
  • sleeping in. to have an entire free saturday and have the luxury to sleep as long as i want.
  • ashley. for when i’m so forgetful that i forget to bring pantaloons for my game. i love having friends on campus that i can call in a pinch.
  • raq. for listening to my rants when i’m having a crappy day.
  • driving early early or late late. normal rush hour traffic shortens lives.
  • being in the loop. i like knowing what’s going on at work.
  • king farm safeway. i don’t really trust other grocery stores. but they have good deals and fresh food. i don’t have to sign a paper receipt when paying with credit. i like seeing familiar faces of people who work there.
  • fashion. if i could afford it, i would like to be fashionable 90% of the time, whether its wearing dresses or jeans+tshirt+cardi. i love good deals, thrift stores and unique outfits.
  • all my more fashion forward friends, especially those in the industry. they keep me up to date and looking good.
  • breathing time.
  • pwb. for being my other half. one in a million, you make me envied by other girls for having someone as awesome as you in my life.
  • ff. i miss living with this girl. we push each other to be better people, which results in two amazingly retarded girls learning to laugh at life.

thankful thursday

13 Nov
  • going out, catching up with old friends, meeting new people.
  • trying and enjoying new things like naked sushi or going out dancing.
  • friends who know how to talk their way around anything. like getting us into clubs or roster-checking for games.
  • fall’09 season of ssb. having a free saturday again is gonna be so weird.
  • putting into action gender play coverage. aka finally playing behind the girl. aka i’m still kicking myself for not realizing i needed to do that sooner.
  • letters from pwb. even if mine hasn’t made it over yet, i like knowing what he’s up to.
  • JAM getting executed. the sniper attacks are still so vivid a memory.
  • basic, civilized care for all people. whether it be public health care or giving a man on death row a last meal.
  • scarves. mittens. leggings. sweats.
  • sweet sales at my fav stores.
  • playoffs for one out of two teams.
  • lunchtime soup

thankful thursday

5 Nov
  • tasty wings. i’m a sucker for cheap hhs with good wings, celery and beer.
  • awesome friends. i love that we’ll pick up parts of each others tabs all the time b/c we see each other tons and know it’ll even out eventually. but its a small perk knowing you get to pay less that day
  • sunshine. optimally between 6 a.m.–7 p.m. so that i can at least wake up and drive home while its bright out. having terrible night vision does NOT make for a happy patti
  • moonlight. alas it’s winter and if there’s any light out, it’s the moon. so i’ll opt for moonlight and clear skies so i can make it to my destinations
  • sunglasses. the sun can still worsen your eyes in the winter. it can also give you throbbing headaches after 3-4hr fball practices.
  • fun friends. i thrive off of friday hhs, post-game/practice hhs or meals. i love the time to relax and hang out with people. i love people.
  • playing defense. i’m not always the best at catching balls, but i’m generally good at pulling flags and covering the short middle. taking care of the QB is tiring but thrilling
  • hump day of class.
  • a stellar upset of the FXA top team so that we get a playoffs bid. hurrah!
  • coldgear. not at all overrated. the brand name, perhaps, but it’s a pretty genius wardrobe must-have
  • sick days. it’s pretty nice to have sick leave. it’s also pretty nice to be able to spend all day in bed sleeping and catching up on tv shows with breaks in between to eat and drink gatorade.
  • What I Wore. i am so inspired by this web site and Jessica Schroeder. she is genius. she puts together fab outfits and mods pieces to suit her. i love it.
  • piperlime. not only my go-to for shoes but it also has clothes/jewelry. it’s the easiest shoe web site to browse and get caught up on styles.
  • ibuprofen. while multi-symptom tylenol works wonders for the flu-struck person, it is not optimal for a chilly, dizzy person. in comes ibuprofen and out goes the dizzy. there may have been too much DXM for me to handle.
  • humidifiers. i have this notion that only children use humidifiers since i used one quite frequently when i was little. but in the cold, dry, winter air, this machine saves me from sickness. as i always claim: i love humidity.
  • rb. i love her to pieces. she has an incredible drive to be amazing. and also thought up the genius idea of monthly updates. of which i’m about a month behind. oops.
  • three weeks til thanksgiving break! (wait, don’t i have project deadlines soon?) yayyayayayay.
  • a fball bye week. no terps, no steelers, no skins. nothing in the sports news world i needed to follow.
