And Now, Autumn

The days grow shorter. There will be less light your lives. What sun you see will merely be an agonizing tease, a reminder of the darkness to come, a darkness that will swallow you whole and fill you with dread and disappointment, desperation and despondency. Also, it is now fall.

Just gonna get this one out of the way: fuck pumpkin beer.

@Matt Can I get this tattooed to my chest?

@boyofdestiny Depends. What does your waiter think?

@Matt Why not just "fuck pumpkin food" in general?

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

@deepomega No seeds? The seeds are alright.

@boyofdestiny An exception made for seeds, which are really pumpkin fetuses anyway.

@deepomega Surely you are only referring to pumpkins and not gourds in general.

@Matt Pumpkin ice cream is surprisingly tasty.

@Matt : Also, pumpkin coffee at Dunkin' Donuts. What kind of self-identifying adult buys that stuff, anyway? More to the point, has anyone ever bought it, period? I've yet to see a verified pumpkin-coffee purchase in the wild.

Alternate take : "Now with the great taste of " is not meant to end with "pumpkin".

Here's a fun fact:

At the exact moment of the equinox, you can stand your fragile mental state on its narrow end, and it will hover there momentarily, perfectly balanced, before falling on its side and rolling and wobbling uncontrollable for the next six months.

@MisterHippity Try it at home!

"The days grow shorter. There will be less light your lives." And with that darkness comes the happy knowledge that now begins the brief period where the subway ride and walk to work won't see me dripping with sweat as I arrive at the office. It's about a month long, when it's cool out but they haven't switched the trains from A/C to heat.

@Bobby Womack : Yes, yes, and yes. Also, wearing a jacket! And rubbing your hands together a little in the morning chill like someone in a, I dunno, Frank Capra film or something. HOORAY FALL. Now knock off the rain, already.

It's about time. My day-drinking was getting out of hand.
