Over the past two days FedEx has shown up with seven seperate boxes with three different laptops, a printer, some software, some other techy thing and the thing I write to you from tonight.

The HP TouchSmart.

25.5″ of Hi-Def touchscreen touchyness.

Or better known around this house as the thing that may lead all of us to commit insurance fraud.

Want to feel like a super big high tech badass? Get a TouchScreen computer bigger than most windshields. If you’re not reenacting scenes from “My Own Worst Enemy” or “Minority Report” within moments then you’re not fully relishing the possibilities.

I’m a lucky kid.

To be able to participate in this giveaway (and no, I don’t get to keep a darn bit of it.)

To have a warm house with an unnaturally comfortable bed (have I ever told you about my bed? It’s better than sleeping in gently swaying cloud coated in velvet.)

To have a family to eat a classic Thanksgiving meal with.

To have the means to even have a classic Thanksgiving meal.

To have a wicked smart kid.

To have a wicked smart husband (who flies in tomorrow morning and flies out Friday afternoon, Dear Law School, Suck it. xoxo-Casey)

To have friends.

Pardon the gaggy cheesyness (turkeyness?),

But I’m thankful.


  1. That’s a great thankful list, Casey, although I’ve never seen “suck it” in a Thanksgiving post before. lol

    I’m lusting after your giveaway.

  4. Why is law school responsible for him flying somewhere? My law school always wanted me to stay put. 🙂

    This giveaway must be hypnotic, because I’m contemplating just buying one of the Touchsmarts!

    Believe me, this too shall pass. My husband commuted to Grad School (home weekends at least). We just celebrated our 41st anniversary.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
