Why I am Thankful (the magazine edition)

Four moms and I teach a co-op preschool class.  We have it twice a week and each teach two weeks at a time.  This week is my week and tomorrow I am supposed to have the kids cut up magazines I have around the house to make an I Am Thankful For collage.

After collecting what I had lying around, I came up with this possible collage.(Note: just because I have the magazine does not mean I have a SUBSCRIPTION; it is ok to read crap every week as long as it is not actually sent to your home.  And the following statements may or may not reflect the viewpoints of the author; they may just be the only thing I could come up with.)

I Am Thankful For:

  1. Cranberry Clafouti (Martha Stewart Living)- no clue what this is but looks yummy
  2. Comedy on Television and/or Melissa McCarthy (Last Week’s Entertainment Weekly)
  3. Kermit the Frog (This Week’s Entertainment Weekly)
  4. Feel Good Drape Cardigans (Latest Land’s End Catalog) – looks compfy
  5. Hillary Clinton is Secretary of State and is only serving one term – I think this covers both sides nicely (Last Week’s Time)
  6. Switzerland still has a finishing school (This Week’s Time; it didn’t have much to be thankful for; mostly about crappy economy.  Must have been a very depressing week.)
  7. SmartWool Pressed-Flower Ankle Socks (Latest Garnet Hill Catalogue; it’s the only thing in it I think I can afford besides monograming but can’t afford whatever they monogram.)
  8. Kim Kardashian didn’t stay in a loveless marriage one hour (minute, second) more (People) I buy it for the crossword.

So if you had to choose what you are thankful for by what magazine you read, what would it be?

    Hmm….This is kinda tough…I get Writers’ Digest, so I guess I’m thankful that I have the opportunity to write. (My first love, ssh, don’t tell hubby)
    -I also get Runner’s World – So I’m absolutely thankful that I have a healthy body and the ability to move it. (sometimes relatively quickly)
    That’s really all I can think of…hard question. Clearly I’m not cut out for pre-school. 🙂

    I am thankful for the High Country News issue that they tell me is coming soon (I hope) that willl publish my next article. Maybe that HCN paycheck will fund 4 minutes of my Black Friday shopping. That would be nice.

    I am thankful for all the Peoples that my doctors subscribe to, so that I can read trash guilt-free. Somehow seeing Sarah Jessica Parker’s lace dress phenomenon or other frivolous delights helps with a difficult treatment.

    I am thankful for the New Yorkers, Economists, Harpers, Atlantics, and Granta we subscribe to. Even though I don’t usually get through them all, I feel just a little smarter to have them jammed into my recycling bin.

    And let me not forget. I am thankful for Comedy of Errers.

    • Thank you. One day I hope to contribute regularly to a magazine. I think the best part of doctor’s offices are trashy magazines. Kevin doesn’t understand this.
