And Now Something Completely Silly

To maintain the universal balance. What is your favorite month of the year and why? Mine is January because it is dedicated to Janus, the two-faced god of the portals. I like two-faced gods, though two-faced politicians are a different thing altogether. I also like snow and the beautiful art trees make in their nakedness.

The month I do not love is August, and the reasons are humidity, humidity and humidity. Humans may be mostly water, but goddesses are not, except in August. What useful purpose does August serve, other than the fact that politicians tend to go away then? Even ice-cream goes bad in August if left on the counter for more than a second (though this does not happen in the Snakepit Inc., ever).

My proposal is to have August replaced by a second January.
