people are always saying things like, "wow, the holidays really snuck up on me." for the most part, they're the same time every year, and there's no mistaking it when they're on the way, just look around, people.
i say, bring it on.
and does that mean that we are living in a void? a dearth of time-keeping devices such as calendars, computers, phones, etc.? if only that were true.
