Pumpkin Spice Coffee.....drink of the GODS!

Well, I've pretty much vanished for the month of August.  I've got no really good excuse.  Sure my access to the blogs has diminished during the day.  But there is still time at night that I could....but I've been distracting myself with other new DVR/HD cable set up....I finally got around to getting a PS3, thanks to a terrific sale at GameStop and a tax free weekend colliding in a perfect storm.....catching up on some Fango/Rue Morgue/Horror Hound back issues that I had been well as other stuff.

As it so happens, I can switch gears from INSANE-O mode to NOT-SO-BAD mode today here at the magical land of work.  I can afford to relax a wee bit and I thought I would take a moment to reflect on the fact that this summer has FLOWN by at warp speed.  Actually it's gone by at LUDICRIS speed (Spaceballs reference there for those who missed it!).  This makes me sad, as I love the summer....but not quite as much as I love Autumn.  I've always found something quite magical about the Fall and I was quite pleasantly surprised to find that there are some coffee houses (as well as select Dunkin Donuts) that are already serving up Pumpkin Spice Coffee!  This makes me very happy!  Sure the temps are still soaring in the 80's with enough humidity to keep an oyster alive out of water, but damnit, I just can't help but ordering a nice big hot cup of Pumpkin Java, slinking down in my chair in my air conditioned office and pretending it's October.  It's also come to my attention that Coffee Mate is putting out a Pumpkin Spice creamer, so I will be haunting all the stores scouting out for that!

Now I've just gotta wait until Starbucks starts to sell thier awesome Apple Cider again!  It's like drinking Grandma's apple pie.  No lie.  It's that good! 

So if you are like me and love Autumn, search out the nearest Dunkin Donuts, Boston Donuts or local coffee house that's starting to serve up steaming styrofoam cups of liquid happiness.  Get a large.  Then let the aroma and taste take you to a places where the air is crisp and the leaves are gold.  A places where candy apples are in abundance.  A place where trick or treating and giant turkey dinners are only right around the corner.  Wow....this is starting to sound like a friggin HallMark card.  Ah fuck it, I don't care!  That's how much I love Pumpkin Spice Coffee!
