Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving comes early in Milam Nation. Here at the Top Secret Arkansas HQ, we're gorging today (Wednesday) instead of tomorrow, because I'll be en route to a wedding in Jackson, Mississippi. So, I'd like to give you my Day-Early List of Things to Be Thankful For:

--2am reruns of A Different World
--Dwayne Wayne's flip-top glasses
--Football on HDTV
--Any place warm enough so that the leaves are still turning at Thanksgiving
--That nice grandma
--That mean grandma
--Good weather on a long drive
--Jack White, The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and everything else
--Old jokes that never get old
--Midterm elections (let's not get carried away, folks...but it's a start)
--The Killers "My List"
--Michael Vick
--Dark meat
--Anyone who prefers white meat
--Meat in general
--The single greatest fantasy basketball team ever assembled**
--A good suit
--Three Kings Productions, and their forthcoming Christmas Video 2K6
--The state of Mississippi, and whatever's in its water
--Whisky season
--Sister Schubert, and her rolls
--Stephen Colbert
--Handwritten letters
--Figgy pudding
--Mid-afternoon naps
--A tight spiral
--Girls that look good in sweaters
--Mr. Mister's "Kyrie"
--The smell of a bonfire
--Rose with some new strings**
--Whatever item on the Thanksgiving table sounds bad but tastes great
--Whatever item on the Thanksgiving table sounds great but tastes bad
--Anything that makes you smile

What's on your list?

Happy Thanksgiving!

**Might just pertain to me

i think sister schubert's rolls can safely be called "manna". i would be content eating those and only those for thanksgiving dinner.

i hope your head is better!

happy (early) turkey day!

Things I'm thankful for:
-The end of Illinois college football and the beginning of Illinois basketball.
-hot girls who like good music and watching sports
-the south, and it's glorious lack of cold rain and wind.
-the north, during the hard snows and after the cold rain and wind
-food, in general
