I Am Thankful For…

Well, ’tis the season for this sort of thing, isn’t it? This is not your typical “thankful for” post, however. Yes, I am thankful for family, friends, and what is generally a decent life. But those things are one the thankful radar every day. No, dear ones, this thankful post is the Thanksgeeking list.

And so:

I am thankful for the X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, and all the other superheroes who destroy and rebuild New York over and over and over….

I am thankful that as long as I have a TV and DVD player the Enterprise, the Serenity, the Excalibur, and the Millenium Falcon will always fly, and Babylon 5 will always be the last, best hope.

I am thankful that the TARDIS is still out there, making me smile, laugh, cry, and want to hide behind the sofa.

I am thankful that I can pick up a book and travel to other planets, other dimensions, other worlds, and meet some of the most human characters I’ve known (even if they have green skin or horns or are forty foot long, flying wyrms that breathe fire).

I am thankful that I have my own sonic screwdriver. Because, you know, you never can tell when you need a good tool. (But not on wood. It doesn’t work on wood.)

I am thankful for fish fingers and custard, the spice melange, lembas, pan-galactic gargleblasters, and spoo. (Well, maybe not spoo.)

And, last but never least, I am forever thankful that Han shot first!

Enjoy your holiday weekend. Love those leftovers. Have some fun. Be geeky!
