Has anyone noticed that a lot of people get just a little more crazy this time of year? I swear, I get the weirdest emails and other stuff around this time. And not just online, but everywhere. More car crashes, more honking, more insanity in general. We just saw a guy driving down the street in a new four door jeep, with the front tire about 85% destroyed. You could hear it flapping around three blocks away. It had half destroyed the fender and he was just driving along like he didn't have a care in the world.

It's like a month and a half of full moons or something.

That sounds like a typical day here in Miami. Which is just one reason why, once again this year, I did all my shopping online. :)

I find that customers have a mental block regarding post holiday dates. Running a listings magazine and web site I am waiting for the panic requests for ads in the January issue (already on sale).

Suicide rates have traditionally been higher during the holidays. Higher stress from many sources.
