Today I'm celebrating Thanksgiving with my gay family my collection of friends from high school through adulthood. And just like with other families, we all can't be here today on this holiday... but in celebration of today I thought that I should write another Top Ten list:
Top Ten Things I am Most Thankful For:
10. Apple: The Apple Company made my computer and my phone and a few other products around my house. I love all my Apple products and wish I could afford more.
9. Work: In this recession, I have a steady job. And it's my dream job! How could it get better? (Of course more money to buy more Apple products).
8. Live Theatre: Musical or Straight, Classical or Contemporary: I love going to the theatre, it just pleases me a lot and I don't like when I go too long without going to see it.
7. Internet: What good is my computer and other internet enabled devices without the World Wide Web. I use the internet a lot, it's a great way to communicate, hell, you are reading this on the internet.
6. Family: I like my extended family. I like them enough to see them 2 times a year, nothing more.
5. Literacy: I love reading. And would be very disappointed if I couldn't. I wouldn't be able to enjoy the internet or my job or Apples without being able to read.
4. TV: Don't need reading for this! Lol! My old friend (Actually my new friend, because I just bought a new, big screen!)
3. Erv: My car. It gets me to work. It got me to school. It helps feed me. etc.
2. Parents: My mom rocks! My dad's cool. They take care of me. They allowed me to grow to be an independent, well adjusted, young man
1. Friends: My friends are my family. And I'm upset that they all can't be here tonight to enjoy our time together.
