It’s not even Halloween yet!

I went this morning to study in my local ‘Costa’. I prefer to keep my evenings from free, so I try to study for an hour before going to work, from 7:30 to 8:30 in the morning. I take my (small) coffee bucket, sit on a corner table and get into the world of Java Interfaces, Objects and Classes!

This morning at some point, I raised my head (not to check on a very beautiful man passing by, honestly) when I heard the café music playing. I wasn’t really paying attention since I was studying but I was awestruck to listen to ‘Let in snow’. I was like: WTF?

It’s not even Halloween yet and they’re playing Christmas songs? OK, ‘Let it snow’ does not make a clear reference to Christmas but for public places like Costa that want to be politically correct, it is as close as it gets! It’s still October for crying out loud. I was thinking that the people working there will be driven mad by the end of the Holiday season…

At least I haven’t heard ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham yet…


On a different subject, the weather here has been quite chilly. The temperature has dropped significantly. Apart from some nutcases I’ve seen yesterday walking around with a simple t-shirt, flip flops or shorts, most people wear winter clothes. However, I have an issue with men (especially younger ones) wearing black leather gloves. I really don’t know why. They remind me of murder scenes.

Especially if I see someone wearing a long brown coat and black leather gloves I think about killings. Maybe it was a movie I saw when I was a kid. I can’t really put my finger on it, but these people creep me out...


  1. Muddy, wet and chill

    almost the same here!

    well well well...u study hard young men.

  2. I love Christmas music, but I have a personal rule of not taking out the Christmas CDs until after Thanksgiving (Nov. 25th this year).
    I love my black leather gloves, but I promise to not wear them if we ever meet. :-)

  3. I could listen to Christmas music 12 months a year. Don't fight it Nik. Embrace the joy.

  4. @Study_n_Steve I don't really have an option. I have to study... ;-)

    @AJohnP I'm not saying I don't like Christmas music, I'm just saying that it's a bit too early. Thanks about the gloves... :-)

    @Cubby No, not 12 months... It's weird...

  5. good luck with the studies!

    i was telling some friends the other day that i was so shocked to see all the Christmas decorations out and up in the stores. I'TS CRAZY! this year has gone so quickly.

  6. @wozzel thanks... Yes, I agree. This year has passes quickly
