Thankful Thursday

Because I have zero time for original material this week, I'm stealing a blog meme from Steph at The Adventures of Goober Grape and Monkey Man.

Thankful Thursday

1. This morning I watched the proceedings from the launch of the Community Health Data Initiative that took place in Washington, DC yesterday. Not only did it remind me of the "Lunch Party" episode of The Office, but it made me even more thankful for my new job. I'm thrilled to be a part of something great that's going to help so many people, rather than worrying about the bottom line of big companies and how they can squeeze a few extra bucks out of their customers.

It's kind of a big deal. Huffington Post said so. Lots of data coming my way, and you all know how much I love data!


2. Even though I'm so excited to be starting a new job, I have to say how thankful I am that I was able to work with such amazing people at my old job. I'm really going to miss them, and I know that some of us will still be good friends even though we're no longer co-workers.

This is us. We ooze awesomeness.


You know you're jealous of our sweet matching shirts.


3. I'm thankful for a plethora of Office reruns. Watching older episodes (like the one where someone leaves "a package" on the floor of Michael's office) gives me hope that the writers will redeem themselves and the final season will be a hilarious return to their roots. After the disappointment of last season, I have to cling to something.



4. The Dunkin Donuts down the street. After spending a few days in Alabama with no Dunkin Donuts (and no liberals, and no heathens, but that's another story), I realize just how lucky I am to have a Dunkin so close to my house where I can get my caffeine fix.



5. Woodchuck Summer Cider. After the disappointment that was the pine-sol-like Spring Cider I was a little apprehensive, but it was all worry for nothing. My friend Alison told me it was safe to try, so I picked up a 6-pack when we got back into town on Monday. Had to stop at Kroger for the necessities after being away for so long. Of course, by necessities I mean Woodchuck and beer. Can't come home to an empty fridge, especially after having a shrieking toddler in the backseat for the last 2 hours of a 9 hour road trip. The website mentions that it includes hints of New England blueberries. Just another thing I miss about living in the Northeast Corridor. Sigh.


I'll have to snap a picture of the actual bottles in my fridge later.

  1. Yes, I was so excited when I tried the Summer Cider! It's yummy, but IMO nothing compares to the Fall...we should have a big Woodchuck Party when that comes back later this year!

  2. If you found Pear cider in your area, I'm coming to visit you. Like possibly next week. I found it in Athens at a tiny wine shop, but when I contacted the distributor to find a store up here, I was informed that they don't sell it in the North/Central Ohio area. Boo-urns. :(
