Things pile up in November

I don't get the timing. National Novel Writing Month. Movember/No-shave November. What else is piling on?

Maybe it's just me, but this feels like a pretty busy* intense month already, without adding the construction of a novel to the mix! Sheesh! And no-shave November?!? Really? You're going to show up at your Grandma's Thanksgiving dinner with a skanky, hairy face?** And expect her to kiss it?!?

But the good news is that tonight we get an extra hour. Yay!!! Are you going to spend it on sleep or something else?


*I'm no longer allowed to use the word "busy." I think it was becoming a crutch. I don't want to belong to the Cult of Busy-ness. We all have the same number of hours in our days. Those who feel "busy" just suck at prioritizing.

**Sorry, but if you're intentionally growing a beard or a mustache which you keep carefully groomed, that's one thing, but the mugs I've seen in November are unkept, chaotic things that don't belong in the same category.
