Ahhh… the cool crispness of Autumn in the air…

It’s autumn, which is my favorite time of year.  Or at least, it used to be.  I am a babe of the midwest where autumn means cooler (sometimes downright cold!) weather, brightly colored leaves, cider, and the smell of burning leaves on a cool evening.  Since I moved to Phoenix in 1992, I have not returned to my roots for autumn — mainly because with the weather in the Great Lakes states it’s hard to determine what day autumn will fall on.  And yes, I said day singular for a reason.  And if you’ve ever lived there, you know what I’m talking about.

That being said, the remembrance of autumns past got me to reminiscing about other things… perhaps you’ve often had these same thoughts:

Wasn’t baseball supposed to be the SUMMER sport?  Why are they playing well into October?  Didn’t it used to end in September?  When did this change and why didn’t anyone inform me?

Candy corn.  Is it a vegetable or a candy?  Or is it both?????

If I buy a pumpkin now… will it last until Halloween?

Do the Cincinnati Bengals really love Halloween, or what?  Uniform colors people… uniform colors.

Is it possible that the chlorophyll that trees produce could actually be masking their true colors, and when autumn comes and the chlorophyll production stops, their true colors come out?   Okay, that really is true… go here to find out more.

Why do I LOVE cider but don’t love apple juice?

How many costumes can you think of that involve a winter coat and boots?  There are many but very few good ones… trust me — I remember many a Halloween that involved snow shovels.

If I buy my Halloween candy now, will it A) still be good at Halloween, or B) still even be around at Halloween?  After all, I am married to a serious sweet-tooth.

Why are there braille instructions on a drive-up ATM?  Okay… so it’s not really an autumn related question, but it’s been driving me crazy for years!

And so I leave you… pondering my musings, scratching your chin and cursing me for giving you a glimpse into my twisted mind.

Welcome to my world.  Muahahahahahahahahaha (that’s evil laughter for all of you who don’t read aloud to your computer monitor).

It’s the end of the world as we know it… and I don’t feel fine. Meow means “I love you”

    Candy corn is not only a vegetable and a candy – but it also is a life requirement!

    I like autumn too, but since I’ve lived in Phoenix more or less all of my life, I’m not sure I really know what autumn is all about. As far as I can tell, autumn is just that time of year where one sweats somewhat less than normal and has to resist the temptation to buy plastic pumpkins at Michael’s.

    When I was younger I conceived the idea of grinding candy corn into flour, apparently because I’d been reading about the Pilgrims or something. Instead of turning into flour, it forms an amorphous grainy blob that after a few days seems determined to decompose into sorghum.

    And my favorite not-related-to-autumn but why-the-heck questions are these:

    1. Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helments?

    2. In a similar vein, why do skydivers wear helmets?

    Bossy thinks ice hockey is worse – it now extends into June. Hello, ice?
