I Love the First Monday in October:
I love hearing Nobel Prize award announcements, and the stories behind them, in the morning news as I get dressed in the morning. Reports start with this one
And the first Monday of October is the opening of the Supreme Court. Which means I will get to listen to Nina Totenberg recount the court proceedings on All Things Considered while I prepare supper at least a few nights during the month.
To add to my pleasure, McCain has pulled out of campaigning in Michigan. This means that less money will be spent on advertising by both parties in this state. Maybe I will finally get to watch the season opener of CSI on Thursday night with fewer "approved" messages.
Maybe I'll even get some knitting done.
