11:32 pm - Things I'm Thankful for (a day late):
A purely random list, because I have so much to thank God for that I could go on for days.

--My family, who support me in my pursuit of my dreams.

--Friends who have let me into their lives, and shared their struggles with me, and allowed me the privilage of standing with them.

--Food, a job, an apartment, and money to buy Christmas presents, none of which I had at this time last year. I spent this Saturday last year standing in line at the welfare office to apply for food stamps because I was literally down to my last $30. Now I have everything I need, I just spent over $100 on presents and have money in my savings. God is incredibly good.

--Books, movies, TV shows...good storytelling in general. Makes life so much more worth living!

--My fellow fans, esp. the LICC writers, the I-Man Virtual Season team, my LJ friends, and everyone I correspond with. Community is wonderful.

--My new Internet!

--My new desk, which I splurged on!

--The writers of CSI, who just turned some of the show's basic setup on its head in midseason--a bold move that should pay off in some serious character work. Yes! I'm creeped out, and thrilled, and really looking forward to new eps.

Okay, stopping now before I start listing things like hot water. :-)

Re: Happy really late Thanksgiving!

Icoooonnnn! Yay!

There will be an update on my progress with GIMP later today. Yes, there will. :-)

BTW, tell me you saw this week's CSI. Oh. My. Word.

Re: Happy really late Thanksgiving!

LOL. Thanks for that. :-)

You didn't see it. Ohmygosh. *minor freakout* Now I'm desperately wishing I had taped it so I could send it to you! Or I could spoil it for you. :-) Or you could just tell me to keep my mouth shut.

I'll just say, I want to hug Grissom, and Eckley is a friggin' creep with delusions of godhood.

Ah, you have a job! All I remember was from last year when you were looking for one.

It was completely a gift of God. This time last year, I had gotten a retail (clothing, ugh) job that I knew would end after the holidays. And the closest I'd gotten to a real job was an interview about a month before (for a delivery position at an ad agency) that I was convinced I had blown completely.

Then in the second week Dec. last year, that ad agency called me. They had a low position in the Accounting dept--did I want it? Oh yeah...benefits and much better pay than retail! Halfway through the year I got promoted, and while boring, this job is solid and totally enables my writing habit, so it's pretty great.

Never take hot water for granted. It may be a simple convenience in this century, but you never know how wonderful it is until it doesn't come out of a tap.

You are so right!

Oh, and nice to see you found my journal, Observer. ;-)
