Fall is my favorite season

It's decorative gourd season, motherfuckers! The cold snap that comes after four months of intense heat, the crunchy leaves, all the pumpkin-based foods, hot cocoa with mini-marshmallows, Halloween, the build-up to Thanksgiving, and then the second one, this time for Christmas. I love all of that.

Except it's not quite fall yet. It's still in the 70's in New York. While that's nice and all, it's not what I want in October. The spaghetti strap tank tops have been moved to the back of the drawer but the black wife-beaters are still in heavy rotation.

I'm just finished with summer. Finished with ice pops, finished with summer vegetables, with air-conditioning, sunscreen on shoulders, all of it.

Except for when there's fancy work, I wear black every day. This lack of fall is making me so depressed though, I want to wear something somehow darker than black. Which obviously is not possible. Which just goes to show how crazy this lack of colder weather is making me.

Nah, somebody was sending it around and it got sent to me. But if all their stuff is this funny I will totally make time to start reading that site on a regular basis!

its been in the high nineties here for weeks....I totally miss fall. Although the honeycrisp apples have finally shown up in my local grocery store.
