First of all, whose favorite month isn’t their birthday month? No one? November is my favorite month. It’s definitely fall. That’s most important. Today’s high in LA (Venice, really) was only 64ºF. It’s really fall here, right? Wrong. But surely it must arrive soon—it’s November! November also means we’ve made it through another Halloween, Z’s least favorite holiday. November ALSO means the REAL holidays have begun: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the new year. What more do you need? Oh, yeah, my birthday. And some other great people’s birthdays.
