Every year in November people on Facebook post something they are grateful for each day. And every year it annoys the hell out of me. But at the same time, I always feel like I should do it, too. They say that being grateful helps increase happiness. But I don't want to increase my happiness by annoying all my Facebook friends with my daily posts that no one cares about. So guess what, nonexistent readers? I get to annoy you instead!

Day 1 (yesterday). I am grateful for maple bars (which I had for breakfast) and the extra hour of sleep that the switch from Daylight Savings Time provides.

Day 2 (today). I am grateful for my sister and brother, who each had their birthdays in the last 2 days. I love them both a lot.

And....that was already difficult. I'm going to have to work hard to come up with 28 more things. But I"ll do my best. Now, here's a picture of a puppy. Because...puppies.

Nobody Here But Us Chickens...

I figure at this point there is no one left reading this thing. Even I don't read it.

But lately, I've been feeling the need to put thoughts out into the world, and by now this is probably a safe place to put them that few will see.

When I started this thing umpteen-million years ago, my idea was to have someone to tell stuff to. At this moment I find myself with very few close friends and very little else going on. The subtitle of this blog has always been "All the stuff I want to say that no one cares about except me." And that's really the point of using it right now. I have no one to tell the little stuff to. So, here goes:

I got my nails done yesterday. I really like the fall color.

Also, I think my fingers look really weird in this picture. But then, I don't usually take pictures of my hands. So, yeah.

Also, I think beards are ugly. I don't understand the current love of men who don't shave. I'm okay with a goatee or a little 5:00 shadow. But if you look like Grizzly Adams, no thank you.

That is all. Thanks for listening.
