A Ridiculously Long List of the Things for Which I Am Thankful in 2020
We can all agree that 2020 has, for lack of a better phrase, sucked. The novel Coronavirus pandemic changed almost every aspect of our lives since January--it's been tough.
It's easy to find yourself bummed out by canceled concerts, reduced capacity at football games, or the hassles of "working from home."
It's even harder to not break down and sob like a scorned banshee when you realize that you'll be alone this holiday season. My family isn't having Thanksgiving dinner this year in an attempt to reduce our chances of catching or unknowingly spreading COVID-19.
I could spend ALL DAY telling you how much this year has blown BUT I am choosing to stay positive (while testing negative... sorry.... COVID joke). There are many, many things for which I am grateful this year, so why not list them all?

Seasoned French Fries at Hooligan's
Babish Culinary Universe

Alan Lomax (the dude)
