with gratitude...

I feel compelled to post again today, primarily because the wasp photograph is making me a little nauseated. Said photo must be pushed a bit down the page, so that I don't have to look at it next time I sign in.

Yes, I really am that phobic.

Having survived my brush with terror (or at least, with a terrible insect) I think it's time for a little gratitude list :)

Today, I am grateful for the following:

1. blue jeans

2. the latest issue of Bitch magazine, which arrived in the mail yesterday. (It's brilliant, as always.)

3. the wonderful writers who contributed work to the first issue of blossombones. (The ezine will debut in January of 08!)

4. my super-fabulous co-editors, Melissa and Missy. (You grrls rock!)

5. dictionaries

6. grad schools that don't require one to take the GRE...

7. horror movies on deck for this evening: Dead Silence and Audition. (I've been wanting to see Audition for ages...but from what I've heard, I should probably approach my DVD frightfest with an empty stomach...)

8. the approach of Autumn--my favorite time of year.

9. my family--who always make me laugh, even when times are difficult.

10. Saturday afternoon naps.

11. according to my horoscope (found every month on the best astrology site on the web--Susan Miller's AstrologyZone), there are positive changes afoot! (much needed for this tired-out Aquarius...)

Mmmm, Audition ruled.
The last half hour of the movie was some of the most crazy shite I've ever seen.
Oh! If you haven't seen it yet, check out May.
I'm having a Ginger Snaps marathon weekend :P

Susan said...

Yeah, Audition was amazing!

I'm going to have to check out some more Asian/Japanese horror flicks soon...

I've never seen May, but it's on my Amazon wish list (along with Hard Candy, and other intense-type stuff). I may have to do some online shopping soon!

And I'm envious of your Ginger Snaps marathon. *smiles* I've only seen the first movie. Let me know what you think of the other ones...

Film on deck for this weekend: How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog.
