My Thanksgiving List and The Week of Awesome

Captain Awesome
I'm thankful for a great many things this year, and most of them seem to have crept up in the past couple months. First of all, there was the Week of Awesome which inexplicably saw a boat load of tech updates, personal triumphs and the release of Harry Potter 7. Included in the Week of Awesome was the Beatles finally making it to iTunes, Google Voice finally making an official (and free) app for the iPhone, Google Docs allowing editing on mobile devices (it's the little things that count), Google Docs syncing with Microsoft Word, me reaching 11,000 tweets, the Epic Thanks charity event last Friday, and the two most important things: a new job (YAY!), and moving forward with several relationships both old and new.

Of course I'm thankful for my family. But who isn't? C'mon. Really. I mean, especially when they're all there around the table glaring at you and asking you questions about what's new in your life. Are you really going to tell them you're not thankful for them? And there are several standard answers to the question "what are you thankful for?" that I'm just going to gloss right over, because, honestly, I'm just not a standard kind of guy.
