1. I think we can all agree that it’s the season where you have to slightly bundle up due to chilly weather, only to get in your car which was probably sitting in the sun and therefore is a FREAKING OVEN, leading you to blast the AC on high and learn how to strip and drive. Right?

2. Speaking of chilly temps, please tell me I’m not the only one who, the minute someone says “brrr,” replies with “it’s cold in here… there must be some torros in the atmosphere!”

3. Say hello to my dinner this week: pumpkin + fried sage flatbreads. I know RIGHT. Uh, and I would be forever grateful to someone for showing up on my doorstep with this. Not even sure what I’d do, but it would be huge.

4. I have a serious question. Do the producers of Dancing with the Stars really think that anyone is going to want to watch after this season, when the dancing is incredible and they are allowing all these crazy tricks? Because they are going to have to knock it out of the park for me to care after this. Oh and PS: given my love for the 90s, I think this dance was made for me. Also: that song comes on all the time during my workouts. Embarrassing.

5. I would absolutely love to carve a pumpkin, but this happens every year and it should come as no surprise that I just do not have the patience. I think it sounds so fun and we lay newspaper down on the kitchen floor and about four minutes in I want to quit. I still hate crafts, by the way.

6. So… I never really liked donuts. I mean, I did… but I just didn’t care about them that much? I could take ‘em or leave ‘em. But now all of a sudden I am obsessed with donuts. Like I want to eat them everyday. This is not a good problem to have. Don’t your tastebuds change a few times during the course of your life? Maybe mine are developing more donut buds?

7. Speaking of things I freakishly love, I realized last night that there has been a serious lack of bacon recipes in these parts lately. I don’t know why, except for the fact that I’ve been cooking a lot for myself lately and forgetting about bacon or something? I don’t know. But whatever, I remedied that problem today. Heavily.

8. If it weren’t for bacon, I could probably become a vegetarian who doesn’t eat many vegetables. Oh wait… but what about roasted chicken? And especially, roasted chicken skin? Oh and pulled pork? Never mind.

9. For a giggle… reasons to be wearing Uggs in 2012. Seriously. That post is like angels singing.

10. Okay, seriously, does there REALLY have to be a horror movie commercial on like every five minutes? It’s killing me. No, really, it is. Like literally. Because every time one comes on, I either almost have a heart attack because I’m so scared or accidentally punch myself in the face because I’m throwing everything around searching for the remote in order to change the channel as quickly as possible. I’m gonna lose an eye doing that one of these nights.

11. You know how a few weeks ago I mentioned that my husband had started drinking wine? Well he told me over the weekend that he doesn’t have a desire to listen to country music… like, at all. I honestly think he has been abducted by aliens.

    I have NEVER liked donuts until this year, it is bizarre! Now I’m constantly searching for new recipes to make…

    Nope, I say the toros cheer too. We had just a small taste of fall last week here in SoCal but it’s summer again! Also, I’m not really much of a donut person… I blame the lack of Dunkin Donuts. Nothing else comes close.

    2. I swear we are BFFS because I think that EVERY time I hear someone say, “brr, its cold in here!” LOVE that movie!

    4. I’ve been thinking the same thing lately. The last couple weeks have been awesome, last nights was incredible. I felt so bad for Karina, although I think she over reacted for such a small mistake. But, I am rooting for Kelly, her dance last night was AMAZING, or Shaun and Derek, they are RIDICULOUS.

    I completely freak out whenever anything scary comes on TV too. It’s really bad when you live alone. If I can’t get to the remote fast enough, I just stick my fingers in my ears and go “la la la la la la ” with my eyes closed till I think it’s over. God forbid there’s a hidden camera in my apartment. I’m sure I look like a lunatic.

    Okay, you’ve convinced me. I’m a former DWTS superfan who even got to play surrogate sister to Shawn Johnson for a day. However, the last few seasons have felt a little stale to me so I quit it. I caught some clips last night and now after checking out Apolo and Karina in the video you linked, I’m back in!

    P.S. Totally with you on the horror movie previews! Every time Paranormal Activity 4 or the creepy clown man one comes on, I frantically avert my eyes screaming “la la la la” until I can find the remote. This most certainly will end in an injury someday.

    #5: this past weekend, my friends and I went pumpkin picking, scooped out the pumpkin, pushed a spigot in its side, and filled with beer. We got to do the carving/scooping thing without the frustration of realizing we have no artistic talent.

    #10: omg, yes! I will sometimes give up on the remote and run out of the room like a little girl (25 qualifies, right?0

    Ok. I CANNOT believe #2. I was literally just saying the “brr it’s cold in here” cheer about an hour ago. My fiance told me he thought I was “singing the words to the song wrong.” Um, what? I told him he had no idea what he was talking about because he didn’t even know what it was from. I then proceeded to “sing” (read CHEER) the entire thing for him. I am right. He is wrong. And I just had to read him your post just so he knows where he stands :)

    So, what I’m trying to say is thanks for helping me out. Haha.
