What I have to be thankful for - T

Today we begin a nifty Thanksgiving group project that Hypey conjured up. Here's the deal: Every day one Monkey Barn member will write a brief post on things he/she has to be thankful for. The wrinkle is that the things that each person writes about must begin with one letter from the word T-H-A-N-K-S-G-I-V-I-N-G. And you don't get to choose the letter! We begin with 'T' and work our way down the word to the final 'G'. To recap, that's one person and one letter per day. Since I'm easily the coolest person in Monkey Barn, I get to go first. Hype or myself or one of our secretaries will contact you to let you know when it's your turn. You have complete freedom to list as many or as few things as you want.



What I have to be thankful for - T

Twins: The Budweiser twins certainly fall into this category, and Lord knows I'm thankful for them, but I really refer here to the fact that I am a twin. In fact, I have two sisters who are also twins. Put that on your Wall of Weird, but it's true. My relationship with my brother is the most important one in my life, and I'm thankful for it.

Turkey: If I was to be executed, my last meal would be Thanksgiving dinner, and no Thanksgiving dinner (or date rape attempt) would be complete without turkey. The stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoe pie, pearl onions and cream (for you New Englanders out there), pie, and sweet tea are all pure money, but the turkey is the quarterback of the entire meal. Thanks for great food!

Television: I don't watch that much TV. Well, rather, I should say, I don't make time to watch much TV, but usually it's on in the background no matter where I am. In any case, I'm an extremely visual person, and I'm thankful for the entire concept of TV - it's a fabulous technology that allows us to communicate real and unreal images to millions of people.

Teachers: The human race wouldn't get anywhere unless we could educate other people on things that we've learned, so kudos to anyone who's ever tried to impart knowledge to anyone else.

Trifectas: Good things come in threes. Star Wars. Lord of the Rings. Sex, food, TV. Blood, sweat, tears. Beauty, intelligence, wealth. Love, hope, peace. Two turntables and a microphone. The list goes on.

Man, I hope I don't get "v."

Oh, and Bear, I was a teacher. You're welcome.

Hyperion said...

I agree, great list, and before I get any more emails on his odd joke: watch a Seinfeld Episode once in a while, you morons!

Chelle said...

I am loving Trifectas...Nice.

Sea Hag said...

I can't wait for my letter. Two turn tables and a microphone. Heh.

Also, you forgot Tammys because they are the sexiest of all T-names, and that's something we can all be thankful for.

tiff said...

Sorry Sea Hag, but "Tiff" is way sexier. :)

Sea Hag said...

Hmmm...perhaps we should hold a wet t-shirt contest to determine the winner of Most Sexy T-Name.

lost goddess said...

Terra is the sexiest T name you could EVER come up with if you ask me. Such a beautiful name. ;)

tiff said...

Sea Hag - as long as we can do it by AGE category, I should be all set. :> I'm thinking "over 40" anad "under 40," and I don't mean bra size!

Sea Hag said...

I think this should be based solely by bra size, age be damned!

Lady Jane Scarlett said...

I'm so glad I have the K day. :) We all know that Kaida is the best K.
Nice to see the Barn is still holding up while I was on vacation!

tiff said...

Hey! Waitaminute! Nobody gave ME a day yet.....is there a pink slip in my inbox?

lost goddess said...

Sea Hag you seem pretty confident you'd win in the bra size category Tell us why? AND then the barn can decide

Lady Jane Scarlett said...

Y'all can fuss about bra size all you want to. As for mine...they're real and they're spectacular. ;)

Hyperion said...

Ladies,

you realize there is only one way we are going to settle this, right?

(I see the next Monkey Barn group project coming from this....)

Dominique said...

twinkies and twister!

lost goddess said...

Mine ARE real what kind of person pays for boobs? the kind who wasn't born wiht them that who!!

Sea Hag said...

hey, if you pay for them, they're yours.

lost goddess said...

Ya if you pay for them they're yours, I'm just saying who pays for fake boobs, ya know.

Sea Hag said...

People who have little ta-tas and a whole lotta money? Strippers? Sugar daddies? Strippers with little ta-tas with sugar daddies with a whole lotta money?

Better living through modern science, I say.

tiff said...

To add to Sea Hag's excellent thought, there are people who have succumbed to the force of gravity through the length of their time on this planet, or women who have had them suckled and thereby deflated as a means of nourishing the next generation, and also transsexuals. Sometimes these people pay for fake breasts.

Not that I would know about that or anything. I just hear stories.

Sea Hag said...

Boobies make everyone happy, so the more the merrier.
