Freakin’ Weekend: 09.24-09.26

globalwarmingYesterday was the first day of fall?! Did anyone else just not see that coming? I know that this was a mild summer and everything, but it just didn’t really occur to me that a.) it was still summer, or b.) that if it were summer, it was coming to an end. I guess maybe with global warming and everything eventually we’ll just have one season. Which, if it stays around 70 degrees and mild, is just fine for me. Maybe climate change isn’t such an evil after all….
