I had a Stepford moment today at the gym while ellipticalling (and rocking out to Arcade Fire), when I looked over at 5 or 6 other ellipticallers: all in a row, moving in unison and to the beat of my music on my iPod. Yikes. I think it doesn't say much about my sanity that I'm so easily scared. I imagine that things are breaking the laws of physics all the time, too. I see something out of the corner of my eye and think it's someone flying, like on Heroes. What am I thinking?
I'm breaking out the Halloween box today. Take that R! I don't have to wait until October 1st, I'm a fall birthday. So I get to blame my Halloween obsession on some type of intangible connection with my season of birth, and maybe on being a Virgo, if that applies. Regardless, a-decorating I shall go. I also shall make a trip to the Safeway for some canned pumpkin with which to make Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing, or Pumpkin Bread, or Pumpkin Cheesecake, or other delectable treats. It's time, people! I don't care if the high today is 98. It's fall. Let it be spoken, let it be done.
