Pumpkin Milkshakes

I hate the fall.  HATE IT.  Hate "sweater weather". Hate getting my old sweaters out of the drawer and realizing that I never dry cleaned them at the end of spring and they smell like a thousand Indian restaurants.  Hate the days you don't know if it's cold or hot when you leave the house so you over or under dress and are either stuck wearing a jacket on a 75 degree day or a bare legs on a 35 degree night. 

But the one thing that I like about fall is the abundance of pumpkin flavored food and beverage items.  I love the pumpkin latte from Starbucks and the pumpkin donuts at Dunkin Donuts.  This weekend I even had a milkshake made with pumpkin ice cream in this adorable mom-and-pop ice cream parlor with the whole old-timey soda fountain, and it was fantastic.

Wait, why was I just thinking about pumpkin milkshakes?

New season-appropriate jargon for huge, fakey, orange velour wrapped hooters: "Pumpkin Smuggler".

completely off-topic but I guess that article on the swedish redneck greaser convention was a big party of sorts... and what a delight it was to read.

Keep up the amazing work, o hackstress almighty!
