More potpourri..  
My Brain: Ahhh. A chill in the air. The leaves are turning. It's raining. What a lovely autumn.

Retailers and TV: It's Winter.

My Brain: No, it's not. It just barely stopped feeling like summer. It's autumn.

Retailers and TV: No autumn. Winter. Look! See all the snowflakes we've pasted up? Have a Christmas special. WINTER!!

My Brain: But... but... Winter doesn't start until something like December 21st. Technically most of the "Christmas Season" is autumn!

Retailers and TV: No autumn for you! Winter! Go shopping! Watch specials!

My Brain: But... but...

Retailers and TV: NOT AUTUMN! WINTER! CELEBRATE!

When realizing both my cat and I have the same problem turning down free food, the following conversation popped into my head...

PHONE RINGS AT 3:30 AM...

Me: Uh??

postrophe: Biscuits.

Me: Biscuits??

postrophe: Biscuits.

Me:...

Me:...I'll be dressed in five minutes.

I don't know about you guys, but I never understand people who give Christmas-related gifts as Christmas presents. "Oh. Yay. Something I can't use for another 11 months. I'll put it away somewhere and hope I can actually find it and remember it in 11 months."

"Angels we have heard on high / Tell us to go out and buy!" -- Tom Lehrer.

That's perfect.

The suspenders do sound cool, but I'd rather have gotten them a few weeks before Christmas so I wouldn't forget them. Glad to hear you got a Cool Gift, though.

One solution to the whole xmas-related gift thing is to put it up anyway - the twelve days of Christmas only Start with the actual day, and the tree and lights are supposed to stay up til boxing day - and then it'll be in the box with all the other xmas stuff when you open it next year.
