Happy Thanksgiving! That’s it — that’s the post.

A Short list of things I am thankful for in this, the shittiest of years:

Obviously my family and friends, obviously, and I so desperately hope they all remain safe and healthy

The scientists who have made vaccines and kept us informed, all of the front-line health workers and other essential workers, and everyone who wears masks and respects social distancing and don’t act like big fucking babies

Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada

The abundance of good and great television (and all of the trash shows that I also love without a single ounce of shame)

And all of you — whether you check in every day for my unhinged Trump rantings or for the (very) occasional Real Housewife post. What I do here is ridiculous and unnecessary and I am deeply grateful for anyone out there who bothers to pop their head in.

I hope you all have a safe and healthy holiday and eat your weight in pie.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Therese. Thank you for the snark, the political rants, the cute animal videos, the GIFs (so, so many GIFs), and the invaluable “Bachelor” Cinematic Universe recaps. Wishing you and you family all the best, and all the pie.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I read your posts every day and the snark and humor are a daily bright spot. I swear, the only reason I started watching The Bachelor/ette again is for your recaps. 🙂 Thank you for the time and dedication you put into your site to make us laugh, think and rant.

    1. Lulu! Thank you so much for your kind comments, and I’m sorry I dragged you back into the Bachelor/ette hole. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
