Giving Thanks…

I was very surprised to find out that Thanksgiving is not just a North American holiday. Food is a very important part of life so it stands to reason that when other nations choose to set aside a day for being thankful, food is at the center of the day.

I am very thankful for so many things that I could not begin to name all of them, so alas, I will take the easy way out and name none (wiping the smirk off my face)! Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy time with family and friends, watch football, eat to your heart’s content and help clean up the dishes for your mom.

I found this information on About.com and Yahoo! Answers.

Life’s Most Embarrassing Moments

embarrassingHappy Thanksgiving! Perhaps I should wait and see if I will ever get a large following on this blog before I attempt such a question. I asked for desktop screenshots in only the second week of the blog. Surprisingly I did get one visitor to send me their screenshot and it will be posted as soon as I get more, however, if I ask for your most embarrassing moment; will I get any response at all?

If you would like to submit your most embarrassing moment just send it in an email to me and I will post it in the future anonymously. If you can share someone elses most embarrassing moment and not yours that is okay too. I just don’t want anything that is made up or a lie. The truth will set you free. When I’ve collected enough I will post them, as well as mine! Please submit only your true stories to either the comments below or to my email.

Here is an example of one I found on the Internet. This is the case of a woman who befriended her boss on Facebook and then complained about him.

FYI:

My November 30, 2009 post will have sexually oriented material much like the first three posts on the blog. By request of the many visitors to those three posts, I am submitting real life stories of my teenage life. If this type of material offends, I admonish you to ignore the 11-30 post. Thank you.
