The Monday Catchup 10/26/20

Happy Halloweek y’all. Let’s get spooky.

This weekend I bought pumpkins for my household– a pumpkin specifically chosen to evoke the vibes of each of my friends. It was a fun and wildly illuminating exercise, walking through the piles and piles of pumpkins at my local farm. There were far too many types to choose from: we’re talking classic orange ones, yellow ones with prickly stems, squat gray ones, rotund tannish ones, stripey black and yellow ones, teeny tiny white ones, small white ones with long twirly stems, speckled orange and white ones, and even some sort of mysterious dark green ones. Frankly? An overwhelming selection. I ended up limiting myself to small ones, both for the sake of my budget and to save my indecisive brain from exploding under the pressure of too many choices.

But the stress of decision-making aside, I love pumpkins. Like, I LOVE pumpkins. I own a variety of faux pumpkins that I use as room decor year-round. I have a small little ceramic one, a large stuffed fabric one that’s meant to be a doorstop (I think), and one of those artsy woven ones made out of like ~twine~ or whatever. Part of me just thinks pumpkins are pretty. But a larger part of me is overly invested in my identity as a Halloween-baby, and I feel the need to really lean into that part of myself. Alright, that’s enough self-reflection on my love for pumpkins, let’s catch-up.

How was my weekend?

  • High: Pumpkins!!! :)
  • Low: I watched I’m Thinking of Ending Things and was left **deeply unsettled**
  • Buffalo: I grappled with the ennui of the times.
