November is the cruelest month. I don'tcare what anyone says. All the leaves are gone, the days are short, the weather is annoying. It's a cranky making month. But it never lasts long. There's too much to do. I've taken a big bite out of my Christmas shopping this week. The stores are getting busy already. I've done more online shopping this year than others as well. I'd just like to enjoy December without having to deal with all that craziness.

*Margaret Atwood, whose birthday was yesterday, gives very short answers to The Questionless Books Interview (looks a lot like a meme to me).
