What i'm thankful for:
Finding that book "Red dragon" by Thomas Harris in goodwill today, i've been looking for it for months; just to be cheap.

And that's about it, oh! I forgot one thing: I'm thankful that I don't celebrate holidays.

1.  I am thankful for:
in no particular order:

-youtube
-the fact that I'm finally over my ex-girlfriend, which took just a month shy of 6 years
-I get to keep my car I came within a day of losing, I would have had to actually move to another state to be able to drive it
-I've had the shit beat out of me by two invisible opponents my whole adult life and finally I've been able to figure out what both of 'em were within the last 6 months (I just wish I knew why it took so long for it to be revealed to me, but better late than never)
-I'm kind of getting better at reminding myself that my self-worth isn't determined by another person's like or dislike of me (but not much, but better than it used to be)
-my animals are healthy
-my needs are provided for
-I've never been incarcerated or institutionalized, YET
-As of the 17th, I have five years sober/clean again after pissing away almost ten years in 2001

don't know if you meant this to be so serious, but I am having deep thoughts tonight. I feel asleep from 6:00 to midnight and now I am paying for it, lol

Hi Neoma :hi:

7. LOVE Dire Straits
Edited on Thu Nov-23-06 04:51 AM by idgiehkt
wow...that is so awesome to click on that link and see that song :loveya:

That entire album, Brothers in Arms, absolutely kicks ASS!

here is the title track, I just love it
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rf90boHHr8E&mode=related...

look what someone posted on youtube about it:
"As an old Soldier, I have requested this to be played at my funeral."

Someday you'll return to
your valleys and your farms
and you'll no longer burn
to be Brothers in Arms...

sigh...

11. isn't he just the bomb?
I have never seen that video, but it rocks. He have up that hyper-poetic Dylan-esque style or writing to write more subtle poignant songs like this. He's so brilliant.

:hug: :hi: :loveya:

13. "I'm on fire" is one erotic song.
I can't listen to it without getting turned on, lol.

I'm not really down, just kind of crazy right now because I don't have any vent and my past bad behaviors always come out and kind of weigh on me this time of year, and it would be so easy, you know...and then it would be hell, but I have 'ideations' constantly all the time this time of year and it just wears me down.

thanks for the links... I will never get enough of The Boss as long as I live :)

:hug: :loveya:
