  1. It’s a kitty! I love it. October is my favorite month – although we don’t really do anything for Halloween anymore – I still love the smell of it.

    Also it’s a small period of time that I get to wear all my cool jackets and scarves before having to don the parka and snow boots.

  2. Great holidays as always.. I was quite happy to see you added for the Canadian Thanksgiving.. much appreciated.. I know you did that for my I will eat till the turkeys come home and alla the donuts and coffee..thanks!


  3. Abroad: Hey there, stranger! I wish we had more months to celebrate the cool weather instead of the freezing, white stuff.

    Churlita: It’s still too early in the day to be my better self.

    Babybull: I listed Canadian Thanksgiving for you, but it was actually Eros who came up with the idea to eat Canadian-related food that day. He’s very wise. :)

    Laura B: That’ll be a fun holiday! And could you tell I was hungry when I made that list? Hehe.

    Tim: Yes, I think we should all celebrate that holiday.

    Eros: Thank you! And thank you for your ideas, too! I’m looking forward to Pizza Appreciation Day. It’s my full intention to appreciate a large pizza with pepperoni and sausage.

    NoRegrets: I don’t know what my better half is either, but I’ll try to find out.

  4. Seb: Oh now that’s how to celebrate! Is Rocky going to be the Emperor or Luke Skywalker?

    FW: I think I like almost any flavored syrup on pancakes, but yes maple syrup is the best.
