Aaah Thanksgiving. The non religious based holiday where Americans do what they do best… eat.
It’s a time of seeing family, and celebrating what we have and how far we’ve come while remembering where we once stood as a nation. It’s a rather fun holiday and one of my favorites. I love getting together with family and having a big meal and seeing everyone. Though there is one tradition I have always hated. Going around the table and saying what we’re all thankful for. Hate it.
I come from a rather large family and often the food would lose it’s piping hot temperature before we finished getting around the table, past the uncles, around the grandparents, and back to dad who started the whole thing.
My family is in another state far far away and right now I’m eating a bowl of vanilla almond Special K, which is not a temperature sensitive meal, so I feel that now is the perfect time to shove this tradition kicking and screaming out onto the Internet.
1. This blog – It gives me an outlet for all the ideas that come swirling through my head and a place to read your thoughts as well.
5. TweetDeck – This is by far my favorite way to use Twitter. Being able to split up columns and follow groups has been invaluable over the last year.
6. YouTube – A never ending stream of entertainment and information. I never get tired of all the great content that can be found here. Whether it’s getting an English lesson or watching parents scare the crap out of their kids, it’s almost always a good time.
7. Disqus – I really do love this comment engine.
8. Amazon – Holy crap the ultimate solution my shopping needs. Books & music all rolled into one!
9. HP Netbook – The ultimate in portability and usability. I freaking love this thing.
10. You – Without the Internet we would probably never have the chance to meet and you would never have read this post.
What about you? What are the 5, 10, or 20 Internet related things you’re thankful for? If you create a post about out, link back here so it will show up in the track backs or put it in the comments.
Thanks for reading,
