    Can you imagine a real veil raid?

    The high is 71 today and I'm opening a can of pumpkin tonight because I'm basic AF and I'm so happy it's not summer anymore (until this weekend).

  3. It's in the 70s here the rest of the week and I'm beyond excited.

    So enjoying having our windows open and being comfortable in my daily uniform of leggings, a v-neck, and a cardigan.

    I would like to talk a big game about how I'm going to grasp on to the final weeks of summer and how happy I am that it's still warm here and fuck your pumpkin spice.

    BUT, I am already on my second bag of World Market's seasonal bourbon pecan coffee and I too would enjoy the leggings/cardi combo. I do feel that autumn is the best, but it's most deserved only after a long, hot summer.

    I love autumn so much. I'm ready for just one frost to kill all these fuckin' mosquitoes. A little jealous of you guys in your cardigans!

    Oh, I wear the same thing all year round, day in day out. It just happens to be most comfortable and season-appropriate in the fall. :)

  8. Any midwest chickens feel the earthquake this morning? It was near Pawnee, OK, but I felt it in Northern Kansas and friends in Lincoln felt it too. Bizarre.

    I live near Tulsa and it woke me up. It was a 5.2 or something, and I heard people in Texas felt it too. That was so crazy.
     
  10. 5.8, I think! It was nuts!

    I was so sure when I first saw the Jacob Wetterling news that it was going to be another false alarm. But I'm very relieved that the family finally has some sort of closure.

    My heart absolutely breaks for that family. This case and Jessyca Mullenberg were the hit-close-to-home cases for me growing up, and now . . . just reading back on the details of the original abductions and whatnot as an adult - a parent, no less - rocks my whole world again. People are so fucked up.

    The Minnesota Zoo is getting a kangaroo in May.

    J thinks it's coming specifically for his birthday.

    Sound logic. Will you visit as a birthday event?

    Helllooo October. I am literally shivering at work today. 57 for the high today with thunderstorms. 80 on Wednesday. What the hell.

    I just love the title of this thread so much still.

    Ummm. I was at "our" Jake's for happy hour buying drugs yesterday, and it made me want a chicken meetup real bad. Seems like maybe @JillofallTrades could use one. And I'd love to talk wedding planning with @shakespeer. And yes, @shiba shake, I see you come through here a couple times a week and like some of my posts. :wink:

    Oh! Also! I saw a new user register (within the past few months) with a MSP IP address (super duper close to me and you, @JillofallTrades).

    Is there a lurker in our midst? Make yourself known. I want to know you.

    I’m stupid busy for the next couple of months, but I will try my best to make any meet-up events!

    And I will try my best not to pregame them so hard (not really).

    More MSP chickens! And yes, I'm totally in for a meetup. And other than this weekend, my social life is very empty.

    I would be less flaky here if work hadn't blocked the chicken. I have to read reddit instead and that's not as fun.
