Thanksgiving Thoughts

I spent the week of Thanksgiving sick with a bad cold. It was wretched. I was homebound for four days and stayed home from work for two of those.  Being an extrovert, this was very trying for me. However, coughing up a lung each day does not leave you much energy for being around people any way.

"What did I do with my time off?" you ask. I watched 20+ episodes of The Hills, the third season of How I Met Your Mother, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, and Made of Honor.  It turns out that mind numbing television does a body good! 11 days later and I am almost 100% back to health.

As a result of watching The Hills, I came up with a list of things I am Thankful For:

1). My drama-free boyfriend who is not passive aggressive, self-centered, or Spencer Pratt, Justin Bobby, or Jason Wahler.

2). The extra pounds around my thighs. A girl has gotta have some meat on her bones.

3). Best Friends who do not hook up with or encourage my other best friend to hook up with or make up rumors about hooking up with said drama-free boyfriend. 

4). A brother who is not Spencer Pratt.

5). Not having a Blackberry or iPhone.

I really did enjoy the third season of How I Met Your Mother. Seriously. That show is a gem and a half. I think I really like it because they are in my life stage and I relate to a lot of the experiences they have. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

Barney: Think of me like Yoda but instead of being little and green I wear suits and I'm awesome. I'm your bro - I'm Broda!

BlahBlah: So, we know how Marshall and Lily met. Robin, how did you and Barney meet?
Robin: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Barney and I are not together, no, no.
Barney: Really? Sixteen no's? Really?

Ted: I mean, you got used to Lily's loud chewing, right?
Marshall:... Lily doesn't chew loudly.
Ted: Dude. This isn't news. Why do you think I call her Chewbacca?
Marshall: I suspect because she's loyal, wears shiny belts, and I resemble a young Harrison Ford.

Barney: You're the most awesome person I've ever met. Well, second.
Robin: Right, first being you.
Barney: No, actually, it's this guy I know who lives in something called the mirror. What up?
