Yes. It’s back:

I picked up the pumpkin spice Life cereal (which I actually wish was readily available year round) and the pumpkin spice cookies (which I imagine many people would concede is a perfectly reasonably thing to have with one’s coffee). I skipped the Keebler pumpkin spice fudge-frosted cookies, but not because they sounded awful. Nah, I skipped them because my metabolism isn’t what it used to be.

But it begins. Ah, yes, it begins. The spice must flow.

Tweets of the Day, The Spice Must :gasp: :wheeze: edition.

OK, fine, I get it: not everybody loves pumpkin spice. But I think that this exaggerates the revulsion.  At least for some of you.


Pumpkin Spice season is almost upon us.

I’m eating a bowl of Pumpkin Spice Life cereal even as I write this.  Well, OK, I’m eating, then typing, and so on.  Because if I try to eat and type at the same time then the milk gets into the keyboard, and that’s bad.

The point is: it’s that time again! I know most of you hate the entire pumpkin spice thing, which is fine. Although I think that most people wouldn’t find the cereal objectionable, on its own merits.  It’s mostly the ruthless imposition of the flavor in the fall months that annoys folks. Well, folks who aren’t me, because I’m one of the horrible people who encourages them to put pumpkin spice in All The Things.  I’d apologize for that, except that I try not to lie. So:

The Spice Must Flow.

Yes, it’s that time of year again! MOO HOO BWAH HAH:

Mmm. All the Pumpkin Spice, everywhere. FOREVER. …Or until the season’s over. Gimme a break: the rain has cooled down my neighborhood to something tolerable for the first time in a month or so. So, you know, reasonably good day and all that.
