Post Thanksgiving Thanks

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is bursting at the seams with turkey and other leftovers!  In the spirit of the holiday, I wanted to post a few non-traditional things that I am thankful for. 

I am thankful that I don't go to this bar.

If you love the city Nashville, watch the TV show Bar Rescue, or listen to the Wayne Mills Band, I'm about to rock your world.  Bar Rescue is one of the shows Bobby & I watch together and the most recent episodes have been in Murfreesboro, TN, so we were just hoping they would do a rescue on a bar in Nashville.  Of course we were hoping it was a bar we had never gone to since most of these places are absolutely disgusting.  Well this past weekend the new episode "Music City Mess" was supposed to air, but they ran a rerun during the normal slot.  I found the new episode showing later that evening, recorded it, watched it and didn't think too much about it.  Until I googled what was going on with the "new" bar now.  The rescue was on a bar called Boondoxx and had been changed to the Pit & Barrel.  When you google Pit & Barrel now you will find tons of news articles about the owner shooting (and killing) Wayne Mills.  Apparently dude has a temper and claimed "self-defense" when the singer was smoking in his new bar. 

The show Bar Rescue chose not to air the new episode right since the death happened the night before, but apparently did not catch the late night episode and Wayne Mills Band fans were outraged.  This dude is a complete idiot.  His bar was about to become nationally famous and the same weekend his show is going to air, he kills someone.  Such a tragedy. 

I am thankful that other people cook for me on Thanksgiving.

I didn't get to go to Alabama and spend the holiday with my family, but I couldn't view pictures of turkey all day long without getting in on some of the action.  And if you've ever cooked a turkey, you wouldn't willingly volunteer for that shit.  So I decided a long time ago I was going to go to Boston Market.  So I rolled out of bed on Thursday, put on a pullover and some tennis shoes with my sexy pajama pants, let Duke come with me, and headed to the Market.  Now I thought I was just going to head through the ole drive-thru and call it a day.  Hence why I looked like this:

But when I got there, there was a big ugly sign on saying "drive-thru closed, please come inside".  I had to park in the parking lot behind the Market because the place was so full and marched my hungry, turkey-loving ass inside.  The line was wrapped around the store!  And I stood there, in my pajama sexiness, for over 30 minutes, among families eating their Thanksgiving lunches.  It was quite embarassing. 

But it was totally worth it.

I am thankful I get to drive towards this view every morning.

Tonight the city of Indianapolis had their Circle of Lights tree lighting.  Apparently the event draws around 100,000 spectators and is televised.  Instead of standing out in the cold, I watched it on TV.  Smart, I know.  The local IBEW creates a tree out of lights around the Indiana Soliders and Sailors Monument.  It is has been listed as one of the top 5 must-see Christmas trees in the US.  And each morning when I drive into work at 6am, I will be driving directly towards this light up beauty!  And when Bobby comes up for Christmas, we will be visiting and getting a closer look (and getting more pictures to share, duh).
