During this lull between when Con season ended and opening holiday gift begins, let us reflect on some things that we, as geeks, should be thankful for.

 

11.  I am thankful that Joss Whedon hasn’t killed any of my friends or family members… yet.

 

10.  I am thankful that Captain Kirk lives in the future, so he can’t get at our wives and daughters.

 

9.  I am thankful that George Lucas hasn’t digitally enhanced my live with new footage, or retconned me to shoot last.

 

8.  I am thankful that my city hasn’t gotten so decrepit that building a RoboCop seems like a good idea.

 

7.  I am thankful that I wasn’t raised by Alfred the butler, because that guy is no fun at all.

 

6.  I am thankful that we don’t live in the zombie apocalypse, because pizza delivery in my area is already slow enough.

 

5.  I am thankful that aliens all work on a Christian timetable, so we don’t have to worry about the Doctor disrupting Hannukah.

 

4. I am thankful for Dr Walter Bishop, who proves that you can still routinely save the world after decades of heavy drug abuse.

 

3. I am thankful for Gandalf, for leading hobbits and dwarves on quests that keep them out of my kitchen.

 

2. I am thankful for the Hulk, because sometimes puny humans just need to be smashed.

 

1. I am thankful for Namor the Submariner, for showing us that not everyone from Atlantis is a whiny loser.

Recently I was really, really low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this.. With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – sr1d
