Okay, gather 'round for the sappy stuff!  I wanted to give a sincere yet light-hearted thanks for what I'm grateful for on this site.

I'm thankful for the friends I've made here - the ones who understand that I'm not just a weirdo; I'm a weirdo with heart and class.

I'm thankful for the higher-ups who have taken the time to help and guide me, especially that day when it seemed like it took me at least nine tries to get the Author Credit template right.

I'm thankful for those who have taken the time to give feedback on my stories whether they liked the pastas or not (unless you were arrogant and self-serving).

I'm thankful for those whose advice helped me improve.  There's no joke here, so let's move on.

I'm thankful that there are so many well-written pastas.  If more writers were like the ones here, there wouldn't have been so many terrible movies at that pizzeria/tanning salon/movie rental place down where most of my kinfolk live (which is now just a pizzeria/tanning salon, probably because the movies were so horrible).

To quote a line from the cinematic classic Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, "Okay, enough with this gooey sh- (character sees parents watching) show of emotion."  Happy Thanksgiving!
