Season's Greetings

"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies."

Can anyone name that movie? Please, for the love of God, SOMEONE has got to know this movie!

Fall is my favorite time of year. The crisp air, the need for a light-jacket in the morning but the warmness of the afternoon, the shortening days, the college football, the impending holiday season (which I think starts in October with Halloween....I mean, we basically start eating candy and goodies of some sort in October and don't stop until our resolutions kick into gear in January), the fresh apples, the pumpkins popping up everywhere, the reds, yellows, oranges, and browns of the trees. I just love it! Makes me want to drink coffee and take long walks in the gloaming after work.

i hate pencils.

they smear so much, and never stay pointy enough for long enough. Plus, they invite one to erase mistakes instead of just moving on. Leave the error there, who cares?

Buzzzz. Ahh, I wasn't quick enough to answer.

Anyways, That was a great NY movie. "The Godfather answers all of life's questions."

Fall? What's fall?

Good movie! I love fall, too. I had about 4 hours of it in Kansas the other day.

Fine, japruf, you'll get no pencils from me! Even though I already know your name and address.

I'm not crazy about pencils, either. I even do the crossword puzzle in pen.

My life revolves around pencils. It's a rare treat when I feel confident enough in what I'm writing to use pen. Definitely not the "make a mistake and move on" type of person. In fact, even when it's right, if it isn't aesthetic it gets redone.

Fall reminds me of folding laundry while football is on with the windows open and a crisp breeze blowing through the house.

I'm so jealous! If you're from Texas, you'll remember the "holy crap I can't believe it's 90 degrees in October" weather we're having. For a midwestern kid, this is craziness. I'd love to see some colored leaves, or to have to wear a jacket.

A jacket. In October.

How novel.

You've Got Mail.....wonderful movie. Since you're from Texas, you'll appreciate that San Antonio has not one, but two story book ladies that orginally came from Austin's Toad Hall....Now Miss Anastasia resides at the Red Balloon, which looks a lot like the shop around the corner.....it's really very sweet.
