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."

Which doesn't mean I'm not curious. I hear he's not so much anti-religion as anti-Organised, formal religion, and there are few religions as nonOrganised as the many forms of paganism. Again, what 'franchise' of pagan did he depict or invent? It's a rather scattered target to hit with either mudballs or praise... ad for that matter, other things about him seem to state he doesn't like much of anything spiritual, be it high doctrine or booga woo-woo... so why are pagans exempt (if they are) and which ones, and... endless Insatiable Curtiousity.
