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!

This is why I'm not going to see The Golden Compass.

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."

And if what you heard is wrong it's not a big deal because you just missed out on one movie of no consequence. However, if it were me I'd be interested to learn for myself instead of relying on hearsay. You're entitled to do what you want, and I'm not trying to challenge you. I enjoy good discussions/debates between friends, it just so happens that spirituality is a touchy subject for most and I hope you don't find me to be offensive.

No, I don't find you offensive.

As it turns out I'm almost as Libertarian as I am Christian so what it all burns down to is this Capitalist spends money on things she supports and doesn't spend it on things she wants less of in the world.

But I said it better in my other response...
