So Elaine. God and I were shooting the shit earlier and here's what transpired. I was told that he was a bit irked at me because I only get in touch when I need something. Like a guarentee of your health, for instance. Then he went into the usual crap that many of us experience with mortals because of our headaches. Why don't you get in touch more? Why do you always call at the last minute with a "headache." Don'tcha like me anymore? Did I piss you off somehow. Why don't you just take some aspirins instead of blowing me off? So, you see, even God doesn't understand these things. Anyway, long to short (that's YUPPIE for "to make a long story short") he's coming over to hang out tomorrow to spit, swear, look at girlie mags, and gamble with me. He was reluctant to tell me how this chapter ended in The Good Book (This Good Book is The Book of Elaine) because the suspense would be ruined if he did. I nagged and nagged and got an answer though. And Bob was right. We will be having something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. OK. Now, more importantly:

Thanks Elaine for the fake fight.
Thanks Elaine for coming to the chat room that night when all was going wrong with me and the board.
Thanks Elaine for, after misunderstanding you in the room that night, reaching out via Email and trying one last time to reach out to me after being an asshole to you in the room.
Thanks Elaine for being my friend and our late night talks.
Thanks Elaine for having such a great sense of humor that you have lifted my spirits when needed, whether I told you they needed lifting or not.
Thanks Elaine for being so strong. In those CH times that I've considered ending it I would think of you and that you have CH and the (Mental and physical) pain of cancer. And realize that if you have the strength for that, I'd really be a weak wus to follow through. You inspire.
Thanks Elaine for deciding to fight the cancer. You have no clue how that magnified the above thought.
Thanks Elaine for being so selfless. That says a lot about you.
Thanks Elaine for not even seeing yourself as selfless. That says a lot more about you.
And lastly,
Thanks Todd, for letting her dream again.
