THANKSGIVING 2017: The Top 10 Things for Which I'm Most Thankful This Year

THANKSGIVING 2017
The Top 10 Things for Which
I'm Most Thankful This Year
_________________________

My awesome son, my amazing
chick, people who hate me the
list of things for which I'm always
thankful is endless. However, I'm
particularly thankful for these ten
super-sized blessings in 2017.

DANA LOESCH

Despite dropping ALL of my personal
political perspectives this year, I still
adore "The Conservative Alternative,"
Dana Loesch. I continue tuning in to
her wildly popular daily radio show
because the mere sound of her voice
beams sunshine into my soul. Plus, her
"Florida Man" and "Mailbag of Hate"
segments are freaking hilarious.

PUMPKIN MAPLE FRITTERS
(AND COFFEE)

It's how I start EVERY day.
(Thanks, Cumberland Farms.)

EMMA STONE

C'mon now — do I really have to
explain this one? Okay, Emma Stone
is a breathtaking delight to look at,
her talent is immeasurable and she
starred in two of 2017's best films

CAULIFLOWER

When prepared properly, 
it's better than ice cream.

GOOD BONES

After launching its second season,
I became hooked on Good Bones
in 2017. While the creative energy
between Karen and Mina is unique
and compelling, the mother/daughter
factor is super-fun and contagious.

DEAD SERIOS

My award-winning troupe DEAD SERIOS
— we've (almost) done it all over the last
30-some years. We've played countless
shows together, created some amazing
music together, traveled together, done
drugs together, drank together — Ugh, I'm
SO glad that's NOT who we are anymore.
And after an extended hiatus, I'm thrilled
to have reconnected with these clowns
this year. 2018 will have no boundaries.

BRENT JENSEN

Host of the acclaimed No Sleep Til Sudbury
podcast, Brent Jensen is a celebrated author,
music critic and speaker. He's also one of my
dearest friends. The value of our relationship
sunk in a little deeper this year as it dawned
on me how everything I know about being
cool and projecting mystique, I owe to Paul 
StanleyRuth Gordon and Brent Jensen.

JESSE TANNER LONG'S
AMAZING ICE CREAM

Unique and delicious, this kid's
original concoctions will soon
revolutionized the ice cream biz.

BAD COP / BAD COP

One of the last truly great, truly
authentic American rock bands,
I discovered this crunchy So-Cal
combo last spring. Simply put, I
love them as much as Skittles.
Thanks Jesus for Bad Cop/Bad Cop.

CENTRAL LIFE
CHURCH

Central Life has been my (non-
denominational) church home
since 2014. And it's a blessing for
which I'm incredibly thankful.
