Life’s a beach at OCC. Even in November.

Today is the day before Thanksgiving, the last day of sanity for 2007. Before you know it, diets will be buried under turkey, stuffing and promises of New Year’s resolutions. Retailers will step up their ad campaigns. And, as with any major event, today is your last day of reasonable commute time on freeways. Ack!

Every year I sit and wonder what it is about this season that makes Americans lose their minds. Is it the promise of glittering wrapping as a beacon of hope for good things to come? Is it the twinkle lights? (Religious affiliations aside I think we’re all suckers for twinkle-lights.)

As I type this blog, I am sitting at my desk wearing shorts and a t-shirt. One thing I know for sure, I feel really silly singing “It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas” while wearing beach attire.

One thing about Southern Californians though, we adjust. I may not be wearing a ski parka, but I know somewhere down the street a 15 year old is optimistic enough to suffer through wearing UGG boots. She’s probably wearing a Gap scarf too. After all, it’s November and therefore “winter.”

I raise my egg nog latte to you, dear reader, and hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Full of joy, happiness, and (of course) twinkle lights.
