5 Fandom Friday: Fall-ing for Autumn

Autumn is the time when we can get really, REALLY BASIC and declare our love of the obvious – and the less obvious –

1.  Jacket weather  layering fashion is an art form, ladies and gentlemen.  Don’t believe me?  You must live in a climate where you never get cold.  Fortunately for me, I can pair my spring and summer dresses with sweaters, scarves, and jackets!  I culled a few ripped jackets from the collection when I moved over the summer, so my jacket wardrobe has pared down a bit, but thanks to Burning Man, my scarves are going to kill it this year!  Get ready!

2.  Seasonal beverages  is about as basic as you can get but there is nothing better on cold or rainy days than closing your eyes and steaming your face over a cup of something cinnamon and sugary.  I haven’t had a real PSL yet this year (it’s still 90 degrees and 90% humidity here in NYC) but I can’t wait to make it happen!

3.  New York Comic Con  IS LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY!  WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR??  I’m more excited this year than ever before for panels and I’m bringing a date (score) so I can’t wait to show him the show floor!  Uh, did you hear that Rose Tyler will be there this year?  Let the Doctor Who nostalgia commence!

4.  Ghosts, Murders, and Mayhem Walking Tours  my job really picks up in the fall, and is the perfect excuse to bundle up, light a candle, and take a stroll through the streets doing what I love best.  Greenwich Village goes all out decorating for Halloween and I’m so excited to get to share that with my tours this fall!  If you’re in the New York City area and want a night with me that you’ll never forget, definitely take one of these tours!  People love us on Yelp!

5.  Central Park  sorry, other parks, but Central Park has it on lock for autumn.  Why are the leaves there just better than anywhere else?  Nature-by-Design, kicking ass and taking names.

      I know! I can't believe it's been almost five years now since I started the tours. Halloween is always the best!

    Love all of your list – I'm so excited for Fall. Too bad FL doesn't get some amazing leaves and awesomeness like Central Park πŸ™‚

      Ah, but you have palm trees! I love palm trees! How anyone can be around palm trees all the time and not lose their brain and act a fool is beyond me!!

  6. Ghosts, Murders, and Mayhem Walking Tours sound amazing!!! I wish I lived closer so I could take part!

    1. Meghan Sara says:

      Next time you're in NYC…!!!

    NYC really is so beautiful in the fall. This is the time of year that I miss living in the northeast most. (When it snows, however, I don't miss it at all, haha.)

    Great list!

    1. Meghan Sara says:

      Possibly that's why we get so basic and hyped about fall: we know the clock is ticking before Polar Vortexes and slush with human pee in it, so we try to squeeze the last bit of enjoyment out of being outside WITH BOTH HANDS BRAHHHH

    I prefer not to think of it as being basic, but the basics are just finally realizing what us cool kids have known about Autumn all along.

      Story of my life: I'm doing my own thing when suddenly, I'm inadvertently trendy. I can't help I'm cool, guys, stop copying me!! πŸ˜‰

  9. Can I just say that you have THE COOLEST JOB EVER??? The only way my cave tour guide job could have gotten any more awesome was if there were GHOSTS. (But our bosses dissuaded us from being ~spooky~ on tours because customers can be….well you know….so boo on that.)

    1. Meghan Sara says:

      Dude CAVES??? Sounds awesome but a little scary-claustrophobic!
