You may be thinking that my September looks prematurely grey, since the weather was decently cooperative, after all. Maybe I was subconsciously preparing for winter, because depite these dull tones, it was a splendid September:

1. POMEGRANATE MARGARITA: I went home at the beginning of the month to wish my Mom a happy birthday, among other things. So my present to her was a lunch and movie date with moi. So we shared a pomegranate margarita to celebrate! (It was bigger than this though!)

2. DRAGON ROLL: The Kenshin Diner opened up a few months ago just a block away from our apartment, and we finally got to try it. Bubble tea? Hate it. In general, not just at this restaurant. But the sushi? SUPER. And the General Tso's equivalent, Kenshin Chicken? SO GOOD. We're in trouble!

3. Metric - Fantasies: I really like this album!

4. Sweet Potato Pecan Pie Tarts: FluxSpace had their 3rd annual FluxTask a few weeks ago, and instead of getting a caterer, they had a food contest. And I got second place, so I won a 1 hour professional massage! Perfect prize for me. I can't wait to make these again, because I only managed to get half a bite of one of them...they got demolished at the event.

5. Baseball: On one of the finer days of the month, Shaun and I went to Penn Treaty Park, where he taught me how to throw and catch! I'm about 15 years too late for that lesson, but it was fun.

6. Mad Men: I know what you're thinking: "If I hear one more person talk about how they just started watching Season One, I'll break something" but hey, it's true. The characters are completely rotten and unlikeable, and the 60s were dreadful, but for some reason we can't stop watching.

7. Leather Shoes: While I was at home I found my Mom's white shoes stashed away in my old closet, so I stole them! Just kidding, she doesn't wear these shoes anymore anyway, so she gave them to me. They're probably older than I am. Thanks Mom!

8. The Sounds: Okay, so maybe I reverted to a 16 year-old in buying this band shirt, but Shaun and I went to their show at the TLA this month and it was so great and I never buy their albums anyway so the least I could do is buy their t-shirt, especially since they are one of my favorites of all time. Plus it's a good fit.

9. Troeg's Dead Reckoning Porter: On the opposite side of the week from the Pomegranate Margarita, I had this beer with both parents at the Frisco Grille, my Dad's favorite pub. It was pint night, so we got free glasses for ordering Troeg's. He had the Troeg's Hopback Amber, which he gave decent rating, but mine was superior so I would give it 4 mugs.
