Hey..did you know it's Fall?

All the advertising and magazines this week are trying to shove this idea that it's Fall. Give me a break. Next they'll be saying it's f------g Christmas. Is the economy that BAD that we're gonna forget what day it is so we better be ready for it? What happened to enjoying what is? Sorry, just pisses me off someone trying to run my life. Ahh feeling much better with that off my mind.

I was going to say, it can't be Fall because it's still so damn hot... but then I remembered that this is what Fall is like here too.

All the fashionistas buy their stuff 3-6 months in advance. The rest of us live our lives and then find only the wrong sizes left when we realize it's time to buy boots or a sweater. Maybe this is just my problem, one of my failings as a woman, but I never got onto the 6 months-in-advance shopping thing.

It's not fall until CVS puts up the Christmas displays.
Usually around Labor Day.

See. This is where avatars would help. At least if most people used head shots.

Anyway, there's a cute pic of ortho around here somewhere.

What's annoyed me in the past has been trying to find swimming costumes for going on a Winter sun holiday.

Because my weight fluctuates I've never been able to wear the same one year to year, but I've never been able to get something decent Oct-May. Which is over half the year! I think clothes shops in this country are missing out on a lucrative market.

Women of all shapes and ages start swimming regimes after the New Year.
Retired women have more money to spend time abroad when it's cold at home.
Fatter women aren't interested in beach/ bikini season.

Bought my last two cossies off eBay.
Binned one because I reduced in size and now the other doesn't fit me either.
Then again, I hate indoor swimming pools and I can't sunbathe, so it is a moot point.

Just, y'know, like to get my whinge in
