Thanks


This Thanksgiving here are the things I'm grateful for (in no particular order)

Elastic waistbands. Loose ones that hit at just the right spot

Paperwhites

Parents who taught me to be stronger than I thought I could be especially when things are really really bad

A husband who taught me it's ok to ask for help especially when things are really really bad

Pedicures and shoes that make me feel sexy even though I currently look strangely fat as opposed to pregnant

Ira Glass

Finally having a giant couch the whole family can pile onto

Los Angeles

Michele Obama

My ovaries


That after all these years people still say I look like Chloe Sevigny, which I used to hate but I now realize is a compliment.

A good mattress

My dopey big brother who makes me laugh this hideous cackle until I cry, even though he still owes me 9 snickers for going underwater without plugging my nose at Lucy Lachance's pool when I was 6 or 7

Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Jack White, all the Blind Willie's, Mick Jagger, Jeff Tweedy, Ella Fitzgerald, and the first guy who recorded music on wax discs. I could kiss that guy.

Ultra thin pantyliners

Books

Good prenatal care

Tacos

Cheese puffs

The best in-laws money can buy. Well I didn't buy them but they are good.

Clinical strength deodorant

My girlfriends who still seem to like me even though I am a misanthropic shut-in

Glitter

Dental insurance

Chanel No5

Irony

Work that I love

My sweet baby boy and his daddy

Tylenol

Oh and... free will. That's pretty good too.
