Five things I'm thankful for today:

1. My new bunny: so fluffy! So soft!
2. Murky Coffee: delicious caramel lattes, hot chocolate, single macchiatos, regular customers who become friends, and playful coworkers.
3. Jamie: kind, strong, supportive, trustworthy, wonderful.
4. My Ford Escape: a means to miniature, temporary escapes.
5. My parents: unconditional love and support.

SS and WVA

Have decided that I really love Sufjan Stevens' version of "come thou fount of every blessing" (it's on the Christmas album).

In other news:

I had a really nice weekend in West Virginia with Jamie. There was lots of lazing about, watching home videos, touring the "Aids Magic Mart", and skipping around the Lost World Caverns without interference. We also saw about a million deer.
