    i can't tell if it's the nice weather that makes me like fall or if it's the fact that it means there's only a few short weeks until the hoard of motorcycle douches put their bikes away for the season.

    It can be both. But the motorcycle retiring goes hand in hand with the short dress retiring - so not necessarily a positive...

    I used a take on a Gome quote the other day. I believe it was, "If you live in NYC and you don't know how to get any douche-ier buy a motorcycle."

    Autumn you have the tight turtlenecks though :slayer:

    One thing that is kinda awesome is when you see a woman walking in the winter with an overcoat, or peacoat and the buttons are pulling and/or lapels bowing because of her big boobs. Let's the imagination take over. Pretty much the only thing you got in the winter.

    ah, one of my more solid twitter quotes:


    "I live and work in NYC, but how can I ensure that I'm the biggest douche possible and piss everybody off?" Buy a motorcycle.

    Damn, I never thought about it this way. Now I'm really conflicted...

    True, at least the yoga pants are still around.

    The worst part about winter though is the calf-length down sleeping-bag coats every woman seems to adopt from November until April.

    I'm a creeper. I stared right at it, while drooling and giggling maniacally.

    I onetime was in a car going between Carroll Gardens and Park Slope, which takes you over the Gowanus Canal. We stopped on the bridge over the canal due to traffic, and I was looking at the water. Saw these things that looked like black balloons floating in the water and couldn't figure out what they were.

    Just before we got going again, I realized they weren't balloons, they were dead rats that had started to decompose and puffed up like a balloon. That was a fun realization.
