I can read Sam's mind


This has been a rough morning. I woke up with a splitting sinus headache so bad that I spent several hours throwing up. Was unable to drive or even hold my head up, really. Finally managed to keep some medicine down. I can sit up now, which is progress, but I still feel like my head is splitting open.

Also tried to set up my new iphone and it's a DISASTER. AT&T says it's Apple's issue. Apple says it's AT&T's issue. I say...screw everyone. The minute I can be mobile again, I'm going into an Apple store and SOMEONE BETTER FIX IT.


Now, what I really wanted to make a post about is this...It's October! My most favorite month of the year.

First, this morning I got an amazing tweet from drvsilla informing the world that it's 30 days to my birthday -- true fact. I even called my own mother to remind her of this very thing. *beams*

Some other amazing things about October:

  • October 1 is World Vegetarian Day! (My mom sent me the sweetest text to tell me that, possibly the actual reason I had to call her.) I have been a vegetarian for more than twenty years.

  • Supernatural returns to me.

  • The weather no longer makes me want to stab myself in the brain to escape the heat.

  • wincon!

  • Halloween and the potential to see kids in costumes.

  • I always get spoiled a lot this month.

  • Fun sized candy bars are everywhere!

  • It's time to make plans and think about Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year.

  • Did I mention my birthday is in 30 days???

    “All things on earth point home in old October.”
    --Thomas Wolfe

    “There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.”
    --Nathaniel Hawthorne

    "October is a fine and dangerous season in America. A wonderful time to begin anything at all."
    --Thomas Merton

    "After the keen still days of September, the October sun filled the world with mellow warmth. The maple tree in front of the doorstep burned like a gigantic red torch. The oaks along the roadway glowed yellow and bronze. The fields stretched like a carpet of jewels, emerald and topaz and garnet. Everywhere she walked the color shouted and sang around her. In October, any wonderful unexpected thing might be possible.”
