I Wouldn't Mind It So Much If It Wasn't So Damn Cold

Attention, department stores, TV networks, and a few trees that I have recently seen:

STOP ADVERTISING FALL IS COMING!

I know the order in which the seasons come. I learned that in preschool. Please just let me enjoy my last month of summer without reminding me that soon autumn will be upon us. Because after that comes winter, and with winter comes that horrible thing called cold. I don't want to think about that. I just want to spend afternoons laying out in my hammock, wearing my bikini, and sipping daiquiris while enjoying some light summer reading, like Harry Potter or Maxim Magazine (which I read just for the articles, of course).

You could always just throw on some socks if your feet get cold.

Check your mailbox.

To better understand this post we, the men of the internet must insist that you provide photographs of yourself laying out in your hammock, wearing your bikini, and sipping daiquiris.

Please help us better understand your life and provide these as soon as possible! :-)

You tell them girl. It amazes me how you have to always shop one season ahead. You won't find any summer clothes in the stores now except the ones that were strange sizes and are now on the bargain rack. Why can't we enjoy summer???

Dave Morris said...

Since it's August 1, I expect the pre-Christmas sales will begin soon. I just hate that.

I found the perfect remedy to that nasty thing called "cold"... Texas. They "think" it gets cold here, but it never really does. Of course, you sacrifice ever seeing real snow again, but I think it's worth it.

Winter in Chicago is unbearable, and I too do not like to be reminded of it's impending doom in the middle of summer..jerks. Sometimes I wonder why it is I moved here from Australia?.....

ZuphChic said...

I know! They've had school supply displays in stores for weeks! I'm not even IN school and it depresses me...

Chixulub said...

Photographic evidence, please. I want to see you reading Maxim. Oh, and yeah, in a bikini for sure.

It's sick to think I have to think about fall shopping when I won't be able to sport the threads until at least October or so. My experiences in retail make it even worse. Post July 4th, shipments of Labor Day shit. Mid August, shipments of Halloween shit. Day after Halloween, shipments of Christmas shit. January 2nd, shipments of Valentines/St. Patty's Day. Feb. 1st brings Easter shit.

It makes life seem as though it is a huge phase shift. When you are a kid, things are so much better. Ignorance is bliss...

Peace

Me said...

I know what you mean. They're waaaay ahead of things. I hate that.

Oh, and Christmas in July sales. So irritating. Keep it in December, with the real holiday, with snow and all. Not July!

If I didn't have to walk to the metro and my car each day I'd never know there were seasons... the damn ac in my office is always full blast... oh, have you stocked up on thermal undies yet? Falls' a comin!

Personally I am looking forward to the Fall/Winter this year because it is the first year in Florida. Looking forward to going to the beach in November, riding my motorcycle on Christmas, and putting a Christmas tree in my front room with the windows open! If you ever get tired of the cold and want to wear your bikini again, you'll always have a place to stay in sunny Florida ;). I did see sweaters in the Express store last week though ... even in freakin' Florida - so I guess Fall is a coming!

Just be thankful you don't live in Canada. I think Canadian winters are far more brutal.
I agree with you though, I don't want to here about fall, our summer up here was short enough.

e$ said...

totally. I went shopping this weekend and was all "oh - cool fall bag! AMAZING fall stilettoes! Maybe I could get a sweater to match..."

then I walked outside and almost burst into tears - it was such goregous goregous weather!!!

I fucking hate august.

Sloth said...

No, the cold is good! If not for the cold we would not appreciate the summer as much. Right? Right?

This is what I tell myself when the boiler breaks in December and my Boston apartment goes all Arctic on me.

I have about 50 pairs of sandals. I think I've managed to wear them all this summer. August already?? Pffffftttttt!!

Nice Blog and Funny Posts

Greetings from south of the border

jamwall said...

the funny thing is, i'm over 16 years removed from grade school and 9 years removed from college, and i still cringe at seeing those back to school ads which start to appear around mid-late july!

john boy said...

First, I think you should consider sticking with the bikini year round. I'm sure the cold winter there will be much more enjoyable for everyone involved. Second, don't go to Texas, the summers really suck, too humid. You already have the bikini so I'd say Southern California is the place if you want nice weather all year. I will appreciate it even more when I know you are all digging yourselves out of the snow everyday (sorry). Third, um, remember that the southern half of the planet has summer in December, so those that celebrate Christmas there do it in a bikini. See, you are so worldly :)

(Jerk reads post) Something........something......Hot chick in bikini laying in Hammock.... some other stuff, english I think......

Excellent blog! I give it an A+ with a Gold Star!! I'll be creating a blog on corvettes soon, in the meantime if you want to review my website on corvette stingrays, i'd really appreciate it!

Applewhite said...

I love that fall is here...Fall is my favorite.

DIAMONDKT said...

You read Maxim? That's soooo cool! It's sort of a mag geared to guys, but that's cool if women are reading it now too, just as long as they don't replace the hot chicks in there with Tampon ads. :P

Cap'n Marrrrk said...

I found the perfect cure for Texas...everywhere else.

Yeah, I used to get sick to my stomach with the Back to School ads. I mean Christ, let us enjoy the swelter.

BTW, on July 31 I did actually get a Christmas catalog. Bastards!

chef becs said...

Tell me about it! Christmas in July? Remember when stores didn't put up displays for Christmas until AFTER Thanksgiving? Why don't we have a holiday for every day of the year? That way stores wouldn't be able to keep up...

allison said...

There was actually a news story here (in NYC) the other night about a store already preparing for the holidays. As in Christmas. As in winter. Gotta' love constantly living 5 months in the future...or not.

RRobin said...

bravo! i am so sick of being reminded that winter is coming. i hate winter!

Jeremiah said...

I Hate that summer is leaving. I live in San Diego and I haven't even been to the beach yet. I've been way too busy and now that I'm starting to find time to do something other than work or go to school , no one else is. I used to go to the beach almost everyday during the summer. Oh well, not like it gets cold here too much anyways :p CALI Rules.

But shopping in August is fun when you run into great deals. I spent $200 bucks this past weekend and had an amazing amount of bags piled up in my back seat. Who can pass up cute tank tops for $5 or cute summer purses for under $10? Not me!

I love the clothes for Autumn. The only thing I dread is the tan fading.
