Here we are at the start of a whole new month, and already I managed to forget that it is not October any more, when I kept writing last month’s date at my work today. On top of this, it feels like it is going to snow. Several of my Twitter friends are saying that they noticed this also, so this could mean that very soon, snow and ice will replace the landscape here in the Valley. This does seem to be the signal for November, ushering in the winter season and our five month deep-freeze?
We can only hope that we are spared, and the arctic cold stays where is should, up in the Arctic.
November is also Movember. If you did not get it, Mo-vemeber is when men are asked to grow their moustaches in the name of cancer, and help raise money and awareness to fight prostate cancer. So, around here anyway, you should see a growing population of men with moustaches. Last year, while I was attending University, many of the male students that could sprout a ‘stash, ended up growing the full facial beard, and the walk down the hallways seemed to evoke Grizzly Adams types. Funny though, some women love the look, while others thought that look was awful. “To each their own,” the saying goes.
This month also marks the busiest time of the year for me. Both my work and social life seem to be at their peak. Sadly there is no way of saving some of it for February, or March, when it is dead and boring, but these are cycles of our modern lifestyles, and change is not an option. I always get though it though.
Here we go, let the fun continue!
Oh, by the way, the title of this post, “Too Far Gone for November” came from a song that my friends wrote in a rock’n roll band we started way back when I was living in Toronto. The month November effected all of us, and for my friends, back in those days, this was the month of change, either positive, or negative.
