    We do indeed have many things to be thankful for.

    I’m not so sure about #7 though. From my perspective, those two things seem about the same. My brothers may be taller than dwarves, but they will empty out the pantry just as eagerly. But to be fair, both are pretty handy when it comes to clean-up.

      Haha, that’s a good point, Alassiel. My brothers are the same, but at least there aren’t 13 of them and they have better manners than dwarves. You’re right, though. Dwarves are good for clean-up duty, plus they provide free entertainment at the same time. Double win.

      I was about to say, “children” can easily fit the definition of “a slew of noisy, messy, food-devouring dwarves.” Granted, my little second cousins aren’t that bad, I just don’t grok children.

      But I have given myself permission this year to not go to extended-family stuff that is an exercise in weird because I’m one of the few in my generation that isn’t married/be-childed. Man, I just can’t seem to get away from that, whether in church or in the extended family.

    I love this list, but are you sure there aren’t mind-reading/controlling powers at work? I could swear #8 is basically what I would have put. 😉

  4. Love the list, Zac. I have nothing to add. 😀

    #21. Although many of six time Hugo Award winner Fritz Leiber’s books are unavailable at bookstores, they are available for free online.

What do you think?
