It’s Christmas! Time to Give Thanks!

by Andrew Dalton on December 17, 2009

xmascardFirst of all, I’m not blushing, I’m just a little red because I’m hungover from Holiday Party Week, as I like to call it. When I worked for Don Draper at Sterling Price Waterhouse Cooper’s or whatever lots of shmoozy reps would throw lots of fancy pants holiday parties for clients they didn’t really like so we’d all be super hungover for that last hectic week of work before the holidays. And last year I worked for a floundering Web 1.0 property that canceled Christmas. So that sucked.

This year though! There was a veritable blizzard of holiday parties this year! And last night’s SF Appeal party (you know I write for them too, right?) was was super rad until that dude put on the Tiesto remix of that Black Eyed Peas song that everyone thinks will really get the party going. (Shut up.) Seriously though, I learned a lot last night. I learned that mulled wine is basically what happens when someone spills their chai latté in your 2-Buck Chuck. Later, when the booze ran out, I learned that brandy and club soda is neither a tasty nor festive and wished there was still some Chai Wine left. But I also learned that there are some superfans out there that I didn’t even know about!

So in the spirit of Christmas, I thought we should all go around the table and say what we’re thankful for, because that’s how Christmas works. I’ll start off with a couple, but feel free to jump in and add your own in the comments. (You don’t even have to be funny!) Here goes!

  • I’m thankful that Derek is really slick with wordpress and hasn’t tried to invoice me for designing the site. It looks great, Derek!
  • I’m thankful that Jared Leto is a great actor and he should totally keep making music.
  • I’m thankful for all the people at Bean Bag Cafe that have kept an eye on my laptop while I went to the bathroom. It’s because of you guys that the site hasn’t come to an abrupt halt.
  • I’m also thankful that no one has figured out my exact address to come punch me in the nose yet.

OK, your turn!

    I’m thankful that I’m the first to comment on this totally rad post by my boy Dolf. Also thankful that my life doesn’t include enough run-ins with aggressive panhandlers to warrant naming my blog after them.

    I’m thankful for this

    My girls singing in the bunkers @ Marin Headlands.

    I sneaked this back up on youtube, after promising to delete it which I did. But then undid. My luck they will go to law school or write unflattering autobiographies or both. But I would still be thankful I think, on some level or another.

    I’m thankful I haven’t spilled a $2 beer on my laptop at Bean Bag yet.

    I am thankful for $2 beers, slaps on the face from the Madrone staff (when ordered), Christmas style burritos at Green Chile Kitchen, cute girls that avoid me when shopping at Falletti and Andrew’s aggressive panhandling.

    Oh, and hot chicks at art openings.

    It’s true, Derek has the record for most Ike Turner’s ordered/received. How do we make “Tina Turner” a Foursquare badge?
