I miss the dead

That's all. People, pets (also people), lost friends. I miss them. I still expect that they're waiting on the other end of a very delayed email. Oh, they'll get back to me eventually. We'll have that next conversation. We'll reminisce about the old days.

But we won't. Or rather, we will, but only in my head.

The Triumphant Return of Isley Says Things

"man, people steal hats WAY too much in dance movies"

"step up movies are like Harry Potter...I'm starting to suspect the best house doesn't always win"

Soooo...

I basically completely forgot about the blog this year. What am I doing that is worth blogging about right now? Absolutely nothing! Watching "Fast Five." Marveling at the absurdity of this series, and the sweatiness of the Rock.

I have some thoughts about the new Star Wars movie (because of course I do), which can be summed up by the following: If you like "Star Wars," you're probably going to like this "Star Wars." Hooray.

Pajamas for Halloween! Pajamas Every Day!

If you, like me, would like to spend as much of your waking life in pajamas as possible, Halloween can help facilitate your ridiculous, socially frowned-upon lifestyle!

Here are a few suggestions for very comfortable costumes that most people will not get.

Everyone will think you are in costume as "a small child up past their bedtime."

Good luck, and Happy Halloween!

Little Nemo - pajamas, pillow, "just fell out of bed" hair.
John Darling from "Peter Pan" - pajamas, top hat, glasses, umbrella, a pretentious manner.
Michael Darling, also from "Peter Pan" - pajamas, teddy bear, sleepy expression, innocence.
Wendy Darling, also also from "Peter Pan" - pajamas, hairbow, poise beyond your years.
Ebeneezer Scrooge from "A Christmas Carol" - pajamas, nightcap, change of heart in the third act.
Brian Stevenson from "Little Monsters" - pajamas, a Fred Savage impression, a video tape of "Little Monsters" to prove to people that yes, this was a real movie.
Klarion the Witch Boy Up Past His Bedtime - title says it all.

The best part of the year

The best days lie between summer and fall, when the weather is brittle and lovely and the nights are starting to frost. Wake up shivering and go looking for that mid-weight wool blanket, that favorite light quilt.

Start thinking about which hot tea to drink (peppermint vanilla) while watching Jacques and Julia wax rhapsodic about how to debone a chicken. Sip, contemplative, and know that you will never in a million years be able to replicate what they do.

The air is stuck between the heaviness of summer and the crispness of fall. The smell of dying leaves is inescapable.

Don't have a Halloween costume picked out, but know you'd better get on that or it's going to be another "I'm an extra from a CW show?" mishmash of things malingering in the closet. Add another mental note to the towering stack, all identical moments in mind that hold just one word: Declutter.

The days are so lovely that the evenings feel hollow. Borrow some cool from Sinatra and Jobim and keep going.

Fall is obviously the best season, but these limbo days are my favorite.
