Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what we're grateful for. So Megan, Laurie, Meghan and Sara have pulled together a list of the geeky things they're thankful for this year, from books to movies to television to video games.
|He makes that red scarf work.|
|I am thisclose to breaking up with you, GRRM.|
I'm thankful that George R.R. Martin finished the fifth Song of Ice and Fire book, even if it wasn't very good.
|Have you read this yet? If not, why not?|
|Any excuse to post this. Amirite, ladies?|
|Be here now, March!|
|Arya and Katniss would be an amazing crime-fighting duo.|
|He's the hero the forest deserves, but not the one it needs right now|
I'm grateful for iPhones, the internet, and Twitter because, with them, a world of up-to-the-second information is always in my pocket even when accessing it is frowned upon... like at work.
I'm thankful for Fringe; for its cheesy television science, its portrayal of strong and sensible female leads, John Noble's incredible acting, and because Pacey Whitter is back on my screen.
I'm so lucky the library lends eBooks that can be downloaded straight to my Nook any time of day or night. (Yes, Meghan B., I said it. Physical books are wonderful but so is the convenience of digital ones. )
Meghan B's List
I'm thankful for physical books. They way they feel, the way they smell.
I'm thankful for zany cartoons, like Adventure Time and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
I'm thankful for the continued awesome of Doctor Who. Bow ties will always be cool.
I'm thankful for Neil Gaiman and Gail Carringer and for every author I devotedly follow. May the next year be full of even more stunning works of fiction.
I'm thankful for my favorite bands, like The Decemberists. You keep me sane.
I'm thankful for people who get my lame jokes, for my crazy family, for my awesome co-bloggers here and for every person that reads Stellar Four. And cat macros. Did I mention cat macros?
I'm thankful for bizarre mashups of pop culture from the 80s and today that you can only find on the Internet.
I'm thankful for my guildmates in World of Warcraft, because without them I would not have the phat lewtz:
I'm thankful for scary vampires.
And, finally, I am thankful that tomorrow, Friday, November 25th at 10am CST, I'll be able to beta test Star Wars: The Old Republic. Oh, what? Yes, I'm thankful for our readers and my lovely co-bloggers and all of that, too, of course. But, you know, mostly SW:TOR BETA, PEOPLE! *swoon*
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Stellar Four!
