autumnal bliss

with two chapped lips and one short breath, i blow a kiss goodbye to the summer of my discontent. i have no doubt that, at one time or another, i have claimed each of the four seasons as my favorite, but, since the summer of my teenage years, autumn has had a special place in my heart.

it breaks the stagnant summer heat with changes in color, temperature and atmosphere. strong, cool breezes carry the dying leaves and fading scents off to wither in wintery deaths.

i felt trapped under the weight of summer, too exhausted to break out of its cage of pixies and posies. but, as fall the first leaves, so also falls the guard of this prison and, all at once, i am liberated and compelled to move.

i took a break from everything today and god! it felt good. i found the absoulte perfect halloween costume at future shock. the sales lady was super, super helpful and was obviously having a blast dressing me up. she just kept telling me how beautiful i was going to be and asking if there was anything else she could do to help me. she even offered to remake my wings.

after that, it was off to the craft store for the tools to make some minor alterations. the sales lady there was really helpful too. she must have told me ten times that i had the perfect figure for the costume. it was very flattering.

so i'm all set for kat and thur's wedding, now. i'm beyond excited. i'm nervous about the ceremony, but it's such a phenomenal thing that they're letting me share in this special occassion. oh, damn, i guess i need to figure out a gift for them.

i've conceived the greatest gift idea ever for phoneix, but it's going to take the help of several of friends to bring it to fruition. i think that will make it all the more special for kat, thur and phoneix to remember. i really love that i take such pride in gift giving. it makes me feel so good to give people things they really, really want but would never, ever buy.

life is amazingly beautiful.

I know what you mean.
Sometimes I love not being where I'm supposed to be.

well, then you should throw a party to enlighten them in our bastardized pagan tradition!

ha! the thought just popped into my head that you could all dress up like your favorite beers, but then i guess you'd probably just have a bunch of kids walking around as a pint of the dark stuff.
