feeling very autumn

I'm feeling very autumn today. I'm not sure what that means, exactly, except I want to listen to a bunch of poignant songs and wander the city while the rain gathers on my trench coat and leaves swirl in the wind.

Watched two episodes of Leverage last night while I put away laundry and packed up a box of books. I have one disc left of the first season. Will probably move on to either the tv adaptations of Nero Wolfe or Sarah Jane Adventures next. My Thanksgiving trip to New York City usually results in watching more television than I watch the whole rest of the year. It's fun, but I'm always a little goggle-eyed afterwards.

Still haven't written this week. I don't feel ready to move on with the next section yet. If nothing shakes loose by Saturday, I will write anyway, of course.
