It has come to my attention that it might be Thanksgiving in America. Thanksgiving is traditionally a non-event in my life - being Canadian by birth and therefore not prone to histrionic fits of bombastic national pride or irrationally forced gratitude for turkey and possibly parades - but that's not to say that I'm not in line with being thankful for things. It's important to recognize the things in life that make it bearable and even wonderful. That said, here are the top five things I'm thankful for at this very moment.

5. Coffee.
Self-explanatory, that. I wouldn't be able to pull a list like this together without coffee and that in itself says something profound.
4. Cats.
They're like fluffy scratchy bits of heaven. I indulged in kitty therapy just the other day, in fact. This neighborhood is the bomb for kitty therapy. It's like owning a giant cattery without the expense or hairballs.
3. Anjelica Huston.

I'm always grateful for Anjelica Huston. Today I'm specifically grateful for the fact that she - via her entire filmography - will be getting me through the dull ache of recovering from my wisdom teeth removal surgery next week. Also I'm grateful that she's awesome. I know this, don't argue.

2. Lipgloss.

Wait, let me re-apply. *smack* Yeah, that's the shit. Mmmmmmmm... lipcrack. Loves it. What was I saying?

1. Balthazar.

He is the definition of awesome. In keeping with the tradition of semi-anonymity that The Crypt sometimes upholds, I will post a theoretical photo of Balthazar the Wonderful instead of an actual one. If I truly posted a photo of his awesomeness, the internet would implode. Also it's impossible to capture the real essence of inner awesomeness on film... or even digitally really.

It's happening. Believe it.

P.S. Torch, you win. I totally dropped the Weekly Catherine ball. But it doesn't mean I'll stop talking about her. I'll just stop labeling it.
