November: Month of Chaos

I want to mention something a little strange.

We have a friend here who’s a healer and who has uh…..  a certain gift of Sight. I know some friends of mine are really dismissive of the whole psychic thing, which is fine and i don;t want to get into an argument of what does or doesn’t exist. It has been demonstrated to me on numerous occasions to the full satisfaction of my inner skeptic. I’m still not going to give $10 to some lady in a scarf with a crystal ball, but i no longer doubt the existence of people with a certain amount of Sight.

So. This past May or June we were all together in the weekend house during one of those nice early summer weekends, and while walking he mentioned that in a few years the world was going to go a bit hogwild, and that a taste of it was going to play this coming November. Basically he mentioned to pay attention to this November as the world was going to get pretty chaotic. It would calm down again, but it would be little sampler of what would happen again a few years later.

Okay. Whatever. November was a long way away and i pretty much just thought “Huh. Mental note to self, see what’s going on next November and if there’s anything to this.”

Well, November’s coming up, and i remembered this the other day. And i thought once again “Huh. Holy crap. Things ARE going a bit haywire. And it’s on an international level. And November’s approaching…”

So, with November still a small ways away i just wanted to mention this. You can see for yourselves whether you think there’s anything to this.

Of course, with my  baby due mid November the month for me personally will be WAY intense, but that doesn’t really count.

So how ’bout them pole shifts?



  1. While I do not profess any Sight, I am stocked to the gills with New Parent Experience, thus I can guarantee you that November will be a serious contender for Most Chaotic Month Ever in your life.

    Incidentally, I and a few others began predicting our present financial crisis in 2003, back when I was processing the most insane mortgage applications anyone had ever seen. I can confidently predict that there is yet another major hit coming to the market, because in 2006, I had a job processing the most insane car loan applications anyone has ever seen. Those have yet to hit the fan, but they will, and with much the same results as the mortgage bust.

    We ain’t out of this yet, not by a long shot. But hey, at least you’ll be too busy changing diapers to care.

  3. The way Matt talks, you’d think we had eight of them. But hey yes, embrace the chaos, for it will run you over anyways. And take many photos, because your memory will be shot all to hell for a long long while.

  4. I just want Maja to make it through the delivery okay. Hell, I want to make it through the delivery okay. And i want to not see much goo and icky stuff. I DO want to see my boy the moment he pops out, although i’ve been looking at some vids online, and man, they sure are fugly little mutants there at the beginning.

  5. The thing is, they’re ALL fugly when they come out. They’re covered in slime, they’re all wizened and oddly-colored, and their heads look like…well, like they’ve been squeezed through a comparatively small hole.

    But when you know it’s yours, the parental glow kicks in, and it’s not quite so much like a Stephen King creation. You see them for what they will become, not the writhing ball of pissed-off flesh they actually are. Then they pee on you, and you realize that your reality has changed forever.

  6. You become oddly proud of their ickiness…I still brag about the way newborn Nathan shot out a stream of poop EIGHT FEET AWAY, because while gross, it was my kid, so it was kind of awesome. We were much more careful when changing him afterwards….

    The icky birth stuff is not that voluminous, and really, you won’t care. By the time you see much of anything, you’re pretty close to being done.

  7. If i was ever asked to name the most uninspiring anecdote about child raising i have ever heard in my entire life, i want to congratulate you on your comment officially being that anecdote.

    Thanks about the reassurance on the icky stuff at the end though. It’s getting a little nerve racking going into the final stretch here.
