Welcome to Advent as today is the first Sunday in Advent, in the Christian tradition. You can now turn on your lights and I will not look down my nose at you, nor will I wag my finger at you (turning on your Christmas lights in November is not cool folks). The traditions of Advent according to my expert Mrs C8j (who while having an astonishing rack, still is rumored to be a Nun) are Waiting, Preparing and Anticipating. Preparation is pretty darn obvious with all the shopping, and putting up of lights and such, however, waiting is another story. I have been at too many Christmas parties where waiting was not practiced (i.e. getting blotto, and then xerox’ing your butt and leaving a copy on your boss’s desk). Show some restraint this holiday season, folks.
Movember is over, but for some of us, that simply means the beginning of Decembeard. I grew a Van Dyke/Goatee looking furry thing, and I have been given the green light by Mrs. C8j to keep it for now (however, should it become unruly, it may disappear one night).
