Because I feel the need to be thankful in the beginning of the New Year!  Also because I am supposed to be working on the six monthly report, and as we all know, I can do anything if I'm supposed to be doing something else!

Today, I am thankful for:
  • the excellent bucket of coffee I inhaled first thing this morning, which was delicious and just what I needed to wake up my still-slumbering brain
  • having pretty new jewelry to wear - one as a result of an addition to "Things that Nepi is No Longer Allowed To Do".  To whit: Nepi is no longer allowed to go to Diva without responsible adult supervision.  Shup, I have a jewelry addiction, it's a very serious matter.  Plus, they were having a sale!  The other is a gift from my talented colleague S, who also makes her own jewelry, and made me a present of a pair of earrings she didn't think were "good enough" to sell in her Etsy store.  To which I said, "Pish tosh!" because I think they're gorgeous!  Pity I didn't remember til I was on the train that she isn't in today to see me wearing them! ;-)
  • My Undertaker Big Gulp cup . . . still!  Because he is encouraging me to su . . . ahem.  To drink my recommended daily allowance of water! ;-)  (Go on, you all know what I was going to say!)
  • A subscription to WWE Magazine, which is costing me for twelve months, with the current exchange rate, around what it would cost me to buy three issues at newstand prices.  If I can get it - my usual supplier apparently has decided not to carry it any longer.
  • The WWE calendar, which is now gracing my desk here at work!  K and I have already flicked through the year together and pronounced that, save for Big Show (ugh - Kane would have made a much better Mr October!), it's going to be a drool-worthy year!  Even if Randy Orton as Mr January isn't my cup of tea, can't argue with half-naked manflesh on principle!
  • The fact that said WWE calendar shows that January 6 is Epiphany . . . and I only had to glance up once to make sure I was spelling that correctly! -snickerfits-
  • The lovely little "Women's Wit" daily desk calendar that K3 gave me as a gift when she left for her new job.  Today:  "We can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs."  Gloria Steinem.  All I ever write cheques for is charitable donations - but I don't think that's a true representation of my values.  I mean, look at the list above - it's not all I spend money on! ;-)
And now, I really do need to get back to the report - Randy's giving me disapproving looks! ;-)  Plus, someone's just offered to make me another coffee - caffeine fix, here I come!

Yay for happy things! ^_^ I always love it when my friends make posts like this.

Also, you have a 2010 WWE calendar and I don't, this is me officially envying you *g*. Who's in it?

Oh the 2010 WWE calendar is a thing of a beauty and a joy forever!

Kicking off with Mr "Four Bonus Months Before 2010 Starts" - Dave Batista, large and in charge . . . and with disturbingly hairy thighs, for some reason!

Mr January - Randy Orton. Not "Shaved head, looking like a dick with ears" Randy either - he's got a buzz cut and the new tattoos. Which I still don't like, but what are you gonna do? ;-)

Mr February - John Morrison! Unfortunately, not quite showing off those gorgeous abs, which are obscured by the date blocks, but still very pretty and windswept!

Mr March - Rey Mysterio. Ugh. Pass!

Mr April - Matt Hardy! Looking fierce - pity. He's much cuter when he smiles

Mr May - John Cena! Shup, I know you don't like him, but I think he's adorable, in a boy scout kinda way. Plus K thinks he has nice forearms. I personally can think of lots of other features I'd rate above the forearms, but there you have it!

Mr June (and that makes me giggle rather insanely) - Jeff Hardy! Wearing that black and purple long sleeve top that hides his beautiful tattoos, unfortunately, but ohhh those eyes!

Mr July - Edge. With one of those wicked smirks and ohhhh such gorgeous hair!

Mr August - CM Punk. Taken when he was manscaping the chest, and before he started his "Who can grow the best mountain man beard?" contest with Mike Knox -snickering-

Mr September - my lovely 'Taker, in the coat. Not the studded leather number, but you can't have everything, even if you're a very (bad) good little girl. And the hat too!

Mr October - Big Show. Do. Not. Want. Should have been Kane! ;-)

Mr November - Chris Jericho. He used to be such sex on a stick, before he turned into such a whiner!

Mr December - Trips. King of Kings, y'know? ;-)

Even the girls in my office who don't like wrestling - which is all of them! - approve. Although, they do think I'll get distracted.

To which I say Ha! Ha, I say, in fact! I haven't been distracted by the 3D picture frames with Kane and 'Taker that have been on my desk for six months. Much. ;-)

I'm doing it again, have you noticed? -snickering- That report's just gonna have to do itself!

Oooh, a detailed summary! Thank you very much indeed... <3

Mr January - Randy Orton. Not "Shaved head, looking like a dick with ears" Randy either - he's got a buzz cut and the new tattoos. Which I still don't like, but what are you gonna do? ;-)

Mm, personally I quite like Randy's new tattoos, although I do think it's a shame that they kinda mask the impact of his old ones. Either way, sounds good!

Mr February - John Morrison! Unfortunately, not quite showing off those gorgeous abs, which are obscured by the date blocks, but still very pretty and windswept!

^____^ You cannot go far wrong with a windswept John Morrison, let's face it.

Mr March - Rey Mysterio. Ugh. Pass!

Ditto!

Mr April - Matt Hardy! Looking fierce - pity. He's much cuter when he smiles

Hey, a Matt Hardy is a Matt Hardy. I approve!

Mr May - John Cena! Shup, I know you don't like him, but I think he's adorable, in a boy scout kinda way. Plus K thinks he has nice forearms. I personally can think of lots of other features I'd rate above the forearms, but there you have it!

Hee! I will admit, despite not finding him even slightly attractive, I do at least owe John a thankyou note for being the accidental cause of Triple H demonstrating the right way to wiggle one's hips in front of an entire Raw crowd (please tell me you saw that clip btw, it was solid freakin' gold!) Also I give him epic props for that one entrance where he had like sixty clones of himself as an honour guard... fair play, the man does have his moments. ^_^

Mr June (and that makes me giggle rather insanely) - Jeff Hardy! Wearing that black and purple long sleeve top that hides his beautiful tattoos, unfortunately, but ohhh those eyes!

*g* Jeff does have the most extraordinary eyes, doesn't he? And now I really do want to get this calendar, dammit!

Mr July - Edge. With one of those wicked smirks and ohhhh such gorgeous hair!

...and this is just making things worse! *faints* (And also reminding me how desperately I miss Edge... :/ )

Mr August - CM Punk. Taken when he was manscaping the chest, and before he started his "Who can grow the best mountain man beard?" contest with Mike Knox -snickering-

*snort* I have to admit, my housemate and I have adopted "mock CM Punk" as our new favourite game. It does have to be said he's making it easy for us at the moment. >.>

Mr September - my lovely 'Taker, in the coat. Not the studded leather number, but you can't have everything, even if you're a very (bad) good little girl. And the hat too!

...nothing I can add to that, really, except a quiet "*thud*". *g*

Mr October - Big Show. Do. Not. Want. Should have been Kane! ;-)

Agreed!

Mr November - Chris Jericho. He used to be such sex on a stick, before he turned into such a whiner!

*snrks* At the moment I cannot think of Chris without remembering him getting pwned by Bret, and dying of giggling again. Sorry Chris. I'll take you seriously again in a week or so I promise! >.>

Mr December - Trips. King of Kings, y'know? ;-)

...you will never, ever hear me bitching about photos of Hunter posing. *g* (But no Shawn this time? Woe!)

I haven't been distracted by the 3D picture frames with Kane and 'Taker that have been on my desk for six months. Much. ;-)

I'm doing it again, have you noticed? -snickering- That report's just gonna have to do itself!


Whoops... Should I stop aiding and abetting over here? *grin*
