Of course there is family, friends, health. I’m also thankful for:
- the Judiciary – (mostly) maintaining the democratic norms of our country
- Robert Mueller and his team – for their tireless work to get to the bottom of all this ish
- I don’t have eat turkey everyday, but CAN eat turkey everyday if you want (really, you can eat it any day, not just on Thanksgiving)
- the utter incompetence of the Republican Congress and the current Administration – it’s been bad, but could have been so much worse. Let’s hope their incompetence holds through 2018.
- THE RESISTANCE! – Getting more people engaged in politics (regardless of their political affiliation) ultimately makes our country stronger.
- And finally, I’m thankful I didn’t have to lace this bacon on a turkey today:
Gobble Gobble and thanks for reading our inane posts every day.
Wishing you all the blessings of the holiday season, and for those which this day is difficult, may today land easily.

“What the world needs now
is mindless fun”
I think that’s how the song went?

Watch all two minutes of this. Because what isn’t fun about a race up a slippery set of stairs?
I’ve heard your voices, your requests, your yearning to speak freely.
It’s Survey Saturday…because the people need to have their say!
Vote early, vote often, tell your friends.
It’s time to head to a work meeting. Slap on some lipstick then pick out what to wear. Would you choose either of these looks?

She’s the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) of women’s tennis and has a love of fashion.
People has the exclusive wedding dress photos.
I could make a corny tennis joke like a “grand slam” or a “smashing success” or “love-love”, etc. But instead, I’ll just say, “WOW”.
And that cape!
Per People, Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive for 2017:
But if he’s your cup of tea, you do you Boo-Boo.
A few more (belated) Feel Good Friday posts, because these are too good not to share.
From Focused Feed Friends:
My first sip of coffee made exactly right.
The perfect parking space.
Money transfers in my account which made me feel rich for about three minutes. (YAAAASSSSS, QUEEN!)
Dinner with the kids and nobody wigged out.
And quite possibly my favorite:
Pull up blasting Yo Gotti and no one treated me like a creep.
What’s making you feel good? Hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org (or use our Contact Us page) to send us your ideas – they may end up in a post.
Make it a great one!
Today, I received my copy of Pete Souza’s book with tons of photos from the Obama Presidency.
I paged through it and there must’ve been some dust in the air as my eyes watered up a few times.
Politics and policy aside – the grace and humility shown by the Obama family is something I’ll never forget.
That book has me feelin’ good today!!
Bright idea which arose from a discussion with a friend.
After really looking at that photo of Hope Hicks from earlier this week, do you think she needs to be rescued?
Like, remember how that was the joke with Katie Holmes when she was still with Tom Cruise? Similarly, we could help out Hope.
Here’s the plan: we slide in to her Twitter DMs and say “blink twice on camera if you need to be rescued”, then we ninja up some plan to help her escape? You know Tiffany would probably hook us up with some help, right?
Just spit-balling some ideas here.
And boy we need it this week more than ever.
Here’s what’s making me happy:
1. Perhaps worthy of a separate post, but this graphic which groups news sources is pretty spot on. Take a look:
2. Iceland has the best speed bumps!
Take a look:
THEY ARE PAINTED IN 3D!!
We shall add more to our Feel Good Friday list throughout the day.
Make it a great one, gang.
When you want to flaunt your status in an oligarchy, but in a tasteful way, it’s the line of “Everyday Objects” by Tiffany.
For the low, low price of $1,000 you, too, can buy a tin can! (There was no word if the top cuts your fingers or the can smells like canned cream corn.)
There’s also the $425 silver protractor (how have I functioned with out this all my life?) and the $1,500 “building blocks” (they’re silver and walnut Legos) and so much more.
I want to just scream “WHAT IN THE FRESH HELL IS GOING ON?” but instead I’ll just
give you the link to the page showing all the items so you can see for yourself.
