I have a love hate relationship with fall. It makes me sad because I miss being in school (I know, I’m crazy) and it seems like summer has ended far too soon… but at the same time, I am cucko for autumn.
For one thing, fashion is amazing–especially living in NYC. Not that most of us can afford it, but Intermix is like the Willy Wonka’s of couture. Check out this green dress by Jenni Kayne, for instance. Okay, so it’s a little trapeze-y for my taste, but I love the color and material. With thick tights and heels it’d be hottt.
Also, now that it’s fall, I’m in the market for some new walking-around sneakers. I’ve got my eye on these Sauconys. I love thin sneakers—you know, just in case I need to do ballet at a moments notice.
Other Fall Things I’m excited about…
TV: Call me crazy, but I’m dying to see the CW premiere of Gossip Girl. Maybe I’m just biased because it’s a TV show based on a super popular YA novel, and it would be my DREAM to have my novel Back Talk (or any subsequent novel) be transformed to TV or film. Ah, sweet success. … But anyway, it looks salacious and silly, and I’m sure I’ll love it. I’m not too picky when it comes to mindless telly.
And who could forget the season premiere of America’s Next Top Model! I know CountryGirl CityLife is especially ecstatic about tomorrow’s season premiere. It’s going to be awesome, especially because I heard Ty-Ty is taking an “eco-friendly” approach this season—can’t wait to see how they rock that!
Theater: I just want to say a big CONGRATS to my good friend Paco who is in his first legit Off-Broadway play, The Children of Vonderly this fall. Paco has starred in several of our Potato Riot flicks, but he’s starting to hit the big time now! Yay Paco.
Books: I’m halfway through Special Topics in Calamity Physics and totally loving it. I’ve got a reading list a mile long, but I think next up I’ll read Eat, Pray, Love, or fellow Flux author Carrie Jones book, Tips on Having a Gay Ex-Boyfriend—sounds fun, right?
It’s kinda cold right now, but I heard on the news that the temp is supposed to go back up to 80 by the end of the week. Holy shnikes we have been having some schizo weather these days. Anyway, while I’m feeling all cozy-and-Fall-like, I’m going to bundle up and drink some cocoa, cuddle with my que guapo kitties, and decide which fall premiere shows to watch (Pushing Daisies), and which ones to steer clear of (Cavemen).
