Bitch on the Blog

Dearest sweetest Hearts, I rarely like using the superlative. Obviously best is better than good but worst is worse than bad.

November qualifies as a month I have come to dread. 31 October I go into hiding hoping to escape the furies, generally find God again as someone to answer my prayers, and emerging, tentatively. on the blessed first day of Advent. I am convinced that should I ever die it’ll be in November. Or, knowing my luck, just when I thought I was safe on 2 December. To be fair to November (Happy Birthday, Lorna) the month has ability to surprise most pleasantly. Can’t remember now (such gratitude): Was it last or the one before when someone dear to me saved my bacon? What’s today? 20th. Ten days to go. Ten days to pull lots of baby rabbits out of the hat in hope they’ll breed.

So, in the name of research (curiosity by another name), pray tell: Do you have a month you feel favours you, months which you favour? A month which largely ignores you and your desires, and the one you wish would drop off the calendar? Please embellish: Our belts might need tightening, imagination and words are free (until someone rubs your knuckles).




  1. All twelve.

    • I see. I take it you leave it to me, Ramana, to apply your answer to my many varied questions and decide which one it is. Reminds me of someone who was incapable of answering a question containing “or” in it. You cannot answer an ‘or’ question by saying Yes or No. Which one is it? Confusion was rife.

      • All twelve months favour me and I favour all twelve months. All months ignore me and I wish that all of them drop off the calendar. I would rather not have a calendar at all.

  2. Any month can be good or bad. I don’t understand the concept of a favourable month. It’s more a question of whether Lady Luck and her Entourage have chosen to give me a big kiss or a slap in the face.

    • Of course, “any month can be good or bad”, Nick. And until a few years ago I never gave it a thought. Until one day I realized a pattern over the years of my life. Holy Cow. I wish I hadn’t. But then I suppose they do say November is the bleakest month. Anyway, upshot being that come November I try and crawl underneath the radar, dead grateful that the month has only 30 days. Bet JFK too wishes he’d stayed at home.

  3. Now there’s a thought. I definitely prefer February as it only has 28 or 29 days so there’s less opportunity for bad luck to come my way.

  4. Interesting thoughts for sure Ursula. I wake up each day wondering if it will be a good day I can enjoy, or a bad day I need to find a way to make good somehow. I usually try to avoid measuring good or bad months in my own personal life, perhaps due to my own profession that measures and reports results in monthly regimented fashion. Must be an inner rebellion in me to avoid transferring that concept to my personal life. And, as you have noted, it is entirely possible to be pleasantly delighted when you least expect it.

  5. I could do nicely without July and August–dreadfully hot and sunny. And don’ think I’m kidding, either…
