    WooooooOOOoo. Friday the 13th. Too bad it missed October for that extra dose of spooky. Anyone have any weird stories or injuries from a Friday the 13th of years past?

    Fall is in full swing and I am planning Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday stuff. Lots of good ideas in last week's WDT if anyone is trying to recreate the season themselves. I think this weekend we are going to make some mulled cider and watch the chilly gray weather from the window.

    Happy Friday, y'all!

    One holiday tradition I forgot in the other thread is getting my parents wasted. They hardly ever drink, so my brother and I make a point to mix up a "holiday punch" that is really delicious, but watching my mom trying to keep her shit together as Christmas Day progresses is pretty hilarious. We even give her fair warning about how much alcohol is in the punch, but she just keeps going.

    My dad always swore that Saturday the 14th was worse. Notable events on that day for him included a car accident and marrying my mother.

    Our trees dropped the last of their leaves in the course of 48 hours this week. I’m not sure I’ve ever had this volume of leaves on the lawn at once. So that’s how I’m spending all damn day tomorrow. I intend to fuel the raking and blowing with beer, so I expect tomorrow night to be one I can’t remember.

    In case anyone thought I was exaggerating about the gray that hangs over this place from fall through winter.

    I’m not familiar with places that don’t have grey sky until late April.

    It doesn't bother you at all?

    I guess it is about what you're used to. I've had a heck of a time adjusting. Just used a light box lamp for the first time today. Time will tell if it makes a difference.

    Yes. I find winter dark, depressing, dirty and I hate it. I can’t WAIT for it to end. This year it may have its advantages to society, an excuse for people to stay home and stop infecting each other.

    It sucks but you get used to it. And to make matters even worse the sunset time for today is 4.43 and it is only half way through November. It will get close to 4 by december 21st.

    Pittsburgh is gray from November to March, the sky, the ground, the hills, the trees, the people, all shades of gray.

    Re: sunset times, a friend moved to Edmonton and I don’t know how he can take it up there. On the shortest days the sun rises around 9:00 and sets around 4:00.

    I liked winter in the PNW. Texas winter is bullshit.

    I hated late October/early November in the PNW. Once the leaves dropped off the trees and the sky was constantly gray, it was just depressing until the snow fell and covered everything up. Then all was good again.

    In Mississippi, everything died by late October, the skies were gray, but snow never came to cover the whole dreary mess up. That was depressing all the way through mid March.

    Here the trees don't drop their leaves until mid January and then start budding out again about 2-3 weeks later. I'm not terribly fond of that either.

    The gray in the PNW never bothered me the way others told me it would, but I totally get why people hate it.

    I was never bothered by the "bad" weather. I miss rain Vancouver days.

    Tokyo is exceptionally dry this winter. Woke up desiccated, which made the hangover that much worse. Sun is usually out though.

    The shitty northeast winters are made tolerable by being able to go someplace and have some beers with friends. Normally anyway.

    Does anybody in here like Tim Dillon? He puts out a lot of content, cracks me up frequently and he attacks all sides, like Parker & Stone do. Comedy needs sans-filter people like him.

    Did you guys know that even though the sign in Meijer says limit one on turkeys, if you walk out to your car, then back into the store you can get as many as you want? I did it 8 whole times today! $0.31/lb, how can you beat that?

    Self check out or different cashiers each time? Did you get some attitude at any point?
