It's Fall, my fav time of year!

This is my favorite season. It has the best weather, the best food, the best colors and two fun holidays - well, I guess if you consider my birthday a holiday. Which you should.

The Best Weather: Crisp, cool, sunny days (like today) - and good storms. I also like DARK. I may be alone on this, but I like the whole day lights saving thing that makes it dark when I go to work and dark when I come home. Too much light on me is not a good thing, you see. I don't know why I like it, I just do. Its creepy. Sue me.

The Best Food: Pumpkin Lattes, Halloween candy, Tuurrrky and all the trimmings. Need I say more?

The Best Colors: My entire house is done in Autumn colors, and most of my clothes. Muted greens, oranges, reds, yellows and purples. One of my favorite crayons was burnt sienna - which is a fall color.

Holidays and other fun: Thanksgiving rocks because it is a 'food' holiday. All you do is eat. My kind of day. Halloween - the perfect excuse to be myself, and again, eat. My birthday - self explanatory. It is going to be good this year because it sucked last year.

You also have the beginning of the Christmas season - remember Fall doesn't end until late December. You have the stores playing Christmas music and decorations everywhere and possibly a snow event or two. I love snow, I just hate it when I have to go to work in it and deal with idiots in traffic. Its also the beginning of ski season! One of these days I'll get my butt back up there.

So there you have it - my very positive and upbeat post for today. Don't fall over.

I love this time of year too. Especially because HOCKEY starts! Don't talk shit about hockey or I will kill you!

It's going to be a weird Thanksgiving this year since I will be in Hawaii. hehe. Don't hate me.
