Bet you didn't know that November is Slaughter Month!

And as if that wasn't enough, it was my Name Day yesterday.
mood: amused
music: Corr's—What Can I Do?


Also, I notice, National Raisin Bread Month and National Moral Indignation Month. Who thinks up these things anyway?

Well, it's Slaughter (or Sacrifice) month on the old Germanic calendar, "Slagtmaand" so that one at least is legitimate :) I bet Ozswede could come up with a great rant for "Moral Indignation Month" ! :)

The slaughter month actually made sense to me, only because in pre-refrigeration times, that was when it was finally cold enough that all the animals that couldn't winter over were slaughtered, the meat wouldn't spoil quickly because of warmth while they were busy drying and salting and processing the stuff.

Feeling generous? Be my guest!

I can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
