And, as I look over these questions, I can say already that I feel alienated from this brand of fall crowd. Oh, well.
Favorite Candle Scent?I don’t really like candles. Like, why bother lighting them if you have lights and you’re just going to blow them out? Like, maybe they could be romantic, but I spend most of my time at home, and being romantic with your family? Gross. Just gimme the regular white wax for Christmas and we’re good.
Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?Tea. Tea, tea, tea. Black tea is good, and so is Earl Grey, and so is Lemon Zinger, and I like tea.
What’s the best fall memory you have?I don’t know… Usually when I think of fall I think of all the miserable things like raking leaves and midterms. I mean, I guess my birthday is technically in fall, but birthdays are not that great of days because they are just like all the other days except you were born on that one a long time ago. So fall is not really that memorable. Oh, except one time my grandpa rolled his car when he was driving here for my birthday—I remember that.
Best fragrance for fall?Fire. Camp fire. Chimney fire. House fire. Forest fire… Well, never mind. I think forest fire season is over mostly.
Favorite Thanksgiving food?Probably pickles. Pickles and bread.
Most worn sweater?I don’t really wear “sweaters” per se, but I have worn my Fringe sweatshirt a lot because who does not like wearing fandom clothing?
Football games or jumping in leaf piles?What about staying inside and reading? What about making cookies? What about staying up late studying for midterms? What about voting? What about all the other things you do in fall? What about ALL THE TRAFFIC from football games (although, to be fair, they are a source of economic prosperity) and what about ALL THE SLUGS THAT CRAWL INTO YOUR SKIN WHEN YOU JUMP INTO THEIR LEAF PILES?
Skinny jeans or leggings?Jeans. Jeans are for always.
Combat boots or Uggs?Is there something particularly wrong with tennis shoes? Like, what is wrong with wearing the same pair of shoes every day of the year?
Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?Never had it.
Favorite fall TV show?Don’t get fall TV shows.
What do you want to be for Halloween?I did not dress up. I like looking at other people’s costumes, though! The artistic creativity of people is always awesome to see, but I think the best outfit I saw with my own eyes was a guy wearing a kilt.
Hats or scarves?Windbreakers are better for staying warm, to be honest. especially if they had a hood. Hats just mess up your hair and scarves are a good way to get strangled. Or… who was that chick who was wearing a scarf that was run over by a car which broke her neck and killed her?
What’s your #1 favorite thing about fall?The color of the trees as their leaves die as though they were sending up one last flame of passion on their wooden pyre as they are then encumbered by the weight of winter’s cold touch upon their spiny skeletons.
Definitely not a fall fan. I am half-tempted to tag a bunch of Australian people because I know they’re experiencing spring right now, but they would probably roll their eyes at me. So instead I shall tag no one because that’s how I feel right now.
