I’ve been waiting for autumn to begin, as usual, since early July. This year I tried to embrace the full summerness of things, but I couldn’t really manage it. Autumn is when the adventures begin – when the shinies, deep in their caverns, are waiting to be pried loose and carried home.
And being the material creature that I am, the season has its attendant needs and wants. Let me, ahem, highlight a few from the list above…
1. This Danish fisherman’s sweater is one that I’ve been obsessing over since almost a year ago. Plus, a commenter has vouched for it as being the best sweater ever. When I think about how much the taxes and border fees would amount to, I cringe. Cringe, and… maybe get it anyway, thereby bankrupting myself forever? Better to die destitute and happy (and warm)?
2. Toe socks. They have turned me completely around on socks (which I’ve never liked wearing) and now I want a full compliment of them.
3. The leather tool kit was in fact modeled after this toiletry kit. Sure, it’s totally over-the-top as something to put your toothpaste in (maybe the toothpaste costs $200 as well), but as a goblin tool kit? Totally reasonable. If I had a nice big sheet of leather, I’d try to make one for myself.
4. A giant jug of apple cider. You know the huge glass ones at the store? Inevitably pricey, but promising to be tastier than anything you’ve ever had before? At least, that is what they seem to be promising whenever I see them. Perhaps I’ll get one when Skyrim comes out, and take swigs from it during the loading screens.
By the way, I’ve finally added a Vancouver section, which can be accessed via the big tab on the sidebar. I’ve just got a few places in there right now, but I’ll be adding more over time.
