PQ Crash — The past eleven months have been difficult for me: I lost my job at the end of October (and haven't found a new one yet), most of my family was in and out of the hospital for one reason or another and the Mariners, Seahawks & Huskies are in the collective shitter. I shouldn't be thankful for anything right now. However, I am. I'm thankful that I get to find a new job that won't require me to work 70+ hours a week. I'm thankful that my family is healthy, finally (except for my grandmother —but she's 93 and can drink anyone under the table— so she's due). I'm thankful for high draft picks and available tickets. Most of all, I'm thankful that I'll be able to brush off the Salvation Army bell-ringers and not feel guilty about it this year.
