Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

o i dare u!All day long I've been thinking about you. I wanted to write a nice post for you for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately I am feeling a bit frustrated and unable to focus on anything.

So, I thought I'd use this space to share some Lolcat love and also what I'm thankful for.

One thing I'm really grateful for is you, the people who read my thoughts and musings. It means a lot to me, so thanks!

I'm really grateful to science and scientists who have done such amazing work over the ages to observe and research the world around us. I am especially grateful to the science of medicines that make my life better, like allergy relievers, eye drops, ibuprofen and acetaminophen, acid reducers, just to name a few. Also hand cream makes my life better too. And eyeglasses, thanks Ben Franklin (...oh, he invented bifocals. Well, thanks to Ben Franklin anyway. He's a founding father. But thanks to whoever invented eyeglasses!)

funny-pictures-cat-sees-pumpkin-brainsThanks to Tempur Pedic, and big TV's, the inventor of the personal computer and the internet. Thanks to whoever came up with ergonomic stuff like keyboards and trackballs, and comfy office chairs! And dual monitors, too. :)

Thanks to my awesome longsuffering husband Butch, who lets me do basically whatever I like (don't worry, he gets treated well in return!) and who loves me and makes me happy everyday, and to my awesome dogs that drive me crazy. I love my little family!

Thanks to my awesome friends and the people that are or have become like family to me. You know who you are. I love you.

Thanks to our founding fathers for the Bill of Rights, and making sure we had freedom of religion, and from religion in there, as well as freedom of speech, and the right to bear arms.

Thank you so much to the all rats and bonobos and monkeys and chimps and e. coli that die in the name of science every day. Thanks for research (oh, yeah.. see above.. obviously I really love science!)

for teh last time, iz festivly plump!Thanks for online research, from Google and Wikipedia to WolframAlpha and beyond. And for online shopping!

Thanks to the great people at my favorite podcasts for keeping me company and teaching me awesome stuff: The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe, Reasonable Doubts, The Naked Scientists and also to Mr. Deity, Edward Current and Ricky Gervais. :)

Thanks for delicious food. (But please keep working on making food that tastes good, is good for me AND doesn't make me fat or give me acid reflux! kthnx!)

Thank you baby Jesus.. haha.. just kidding!

Thanks again to you for reading. I really love your comments too. It makes my day!

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Thank you, Neece! You tickle both my funny bone AND my brain!

  2. Aww, you make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, my friend. :)

  3. I visited my daughter, son-in-law, the grandchildren, and their cat. It was great to be around people who just love you because you are theirs! Thankful for family and friends, online and local, the internet, modern medicine that allows me to live normal life, a fairly well-functioning brain (most of the time)....and this blog! Thanks, Neece!
