Fridays at Five

Happy Football Everyone.  Happy Football
- How each of the NFL teams got their names.  (MentalFloss)
- Do you bite your thumb at me, Sir Patriot of the New England? (Thought Catalog)

Post DNC and RNC, here's a quiz: www.Isidewith.com

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the majority of movies that are better than the book are action movies. (Den of Geek)

Three of my favorites.  Ignore the David Letterman intro.

A Fall List

It's strange to think that Labor Day has passed us by.  As in the end of summer.  I remember Memorial Day weekend going to the bar/restaurant (RIP) down the street from me for brunch and the bartender giving out free drinks, resulting in me stumbling home sloshed at 11 am.  It feels like it was just a couple of weeks ago.  However, as the quote goes, "I saw a flock of birds flying north today.  If they can move on after the summer, so can I".

Here are some things I'm looking forward to falling for this fall:

- pumpkin and/or apple flavored beverages and food
- fall leaves
- Halloween costumes
- Thanksgiving
- light jackets, scarves, and boots
- football!!
- cozy music (Jens Lekman, The Avett Brothers, and Mumford and Sons all have new albums coming out)
- open windows
- camping and making s'mores on an open fire
- the smell of cinnamon
- the return of "good" tv
