Traditional Recipe for November
First, insert the end of Daylight Savings Time just prior to the start of the month. This will set all the clocks back one hour and play havoc with my internal clock. Which I hadn't noticed before, but which has apparently been consistent each year.
Next, on the last day of October, hold a holiday that involves the influx of Much Candy. Although I managed not to steal any candy from my children this year, this does not mean that I escaped. And I have been eating Sugar Sugar Sugar for many days now.
Third, have the weather turn cold and spitty. So that I spend as little time outside as possible. And arrange for dark clouds covering the sun just to add to the ambiance of gloom.
...okay I am writing this in the "Quiet Study Area" of the library and the person to my right is crunching loudly on cherry-flavored cough drops and the person on my left has a hugely LOUD ringtone and is now talking to someone. And behind me some sadist is squeaking his shoes against the floor. And if I were a famous movie star I would totally just snap and start screaming at all of them until my handlers guided me gently to my trailer where I could get a massage and a nice cuppa.
Grateful Crap: patience
better eating today
