It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
It was in the low 30s when I flew out of Cleveburgh, but 70 when I landed out west. Granted, it's in the 40s at night, but I wasn't really expecting a fake xmas tree to be the first thing I saw in the hotel.
I shouldn't be surprised, as Halloween candy was out at Labor Day and the December holiday shit has been in stores since mid-October.
But I'm not ready for it - not that I ever am. I can't even wrap my head around that it's Thanksgiving next week and then December a week after that.
I still have weeks of work travel planned for the rest of the year. No rest for the wicked, I suppose. I am hoping to make Platinum, but I think I might come up short - which sucks. I suppose had I done 2-3 more flight earlier in the year, I wouldn't be coming down to the wire on this, but it is all so draining.
Well, I wish I had more to say, but it's 23:38 on my body clock, which means I've been up for 20.5 hours now. I gotta get to bed.
Sad it's only 20:38 here and my lights will be out. Sad but true.

Were they playing Yaksmas music yet in the lobby too?
one of our local malls had "santa" arrive on 11/3. too f-ing early! thanksgiving day (after my city's annual parade) is good enough; that's how it used to be 50 years ago.
(shakes cane) and you kids get offa my lawn!
They were busy decorating the buildings of my work place yesterday afternoon as I left. "Winter Holidays" make me feel so good. No xmas trees though. Just boughs of holly and lots of big red balls. I like big balls.
two of the houses in my neighborhood have their outside lights up already. 5
I keep on my blinders and don't take them off until after thanksgiving.
