Being Grateful

posted by Sybil Vane
Everyone acts like they want to hear less bitching and more gratefulness from us privileged feminists. So here's what I'm grateful for tonight:

- Clean water. We were under a boil water advisory for 2 days because of a power outage at the water treatment plant. It really does a person good to be reminded of how much she takes treated water for granted.

- The Dark Knight. leblanc made the relevant point/bitch re: the role of women and I agree with her, but I still thought the movie was teh awesome. I've been trying to write a review, but it kept coming out super earnest and invoking Benjamin and I couldn't bear myself, so I'll just reduce it to this: heady and explode-y. Edited to add (because I actually woke up at night thinking about this): all this being said, the movie really should've been rated R.

- Finally having read The Left Hand of Darkness, which had me weeping in a coffee shop as I finished it. Gorgeous.

- A very good friend submitting his diss tomorrow, triumphing over the Worst Committee in the history of graduate school.

- Obama's Berlin speech

Admit it, gratefulness is just a little bit dull.
