Sun Dresses and Sunny Days


I'm a big fan of sun dresses. Women in sun dresses, that is... not actually wearing them myself. They are just one of the many great things about summer.

Unfortunately, fall started yesterday, at least for me. It was dark, misty, and dreary all day, and as I sat on my bar stool at 7pm last night, I gazed out the window not to a bright sunny streetscape, but to street lights, cars with lit headlamps, and people walking or jogging in long sleeves. No sundresses anywhere to be found. I was bummed.

I should have gotten used to the change of seasons by now. Everyone I know who's moved here from a warmer climate like Florida or Texas or SoCal says that the greatest thing about this area is the change in seasons. Well, I guess the grass is greener on the other side, because for the past few years I've gotten more and more depressed as the hot and bright of summer gives way to the wet and dreary of fall and winter.

Thank God for football, hockey, and skiing, otherwise this time of year would be totally unbearable for me. At least having my favorite sports at my disposal provides me with enough of a distraction to get me through the low months of the year until the sun dresses come back out of hiding.

Fall is awesome...fall ROCKS!!! I can wear jeans, I can pile on the sweatshirts (unless I'm going out on the town of course, then it's hoochie shirt all the way) It's FOOTBALL season, the best time of year.

Let your mind wander to the image of an attractive woman wearing tight jeans, her hair down, draping over your favorite NFL team's jersey, while she smiles with you over a few beers and Sunday's game.

It's. Fall. Good.

Berk, for you, I'll wear a Steelers jersey next time so you can have the image Direwolf speaks of. ;-)

Berk, I thought you would be all about the skirts, boots (knee high), tight fitting sweaters (that make those of us without huge boobs look like we HAVE huge boobs ;))... Oh, I love fall. LOVE winter. You don't think running tights are hot?? Tights, a fleece and a little fleece headband?? Some little gloves... Perfectly flush cheeks?? (butt cheeks included??) Come on now... talk to me.

Kayla, don't get me wrong. Despite the headline, it's the weather, temperature, and gloominess that gets me down about fall/winter. The ladies look good any time of year.

mmm.. women.

 
At 1:22 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

Hmmm... I neglected to mention how much i like boys in sundresses. is that wrong??

 
At 1:24 PM, Blogger I-66 said...

yes, it's wrong that you like boys in sundresses...

...but no, it's not wrong that you neglected to mention it.

 
At 1:24 PM, Blogger DireWolf said...

boys in sundresses are not wrong if you're at a jam band festival, but that too tends to be a summer happening, not fall.

 
At 1:31 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

What if the sundresses were part of some... say... role playing.. where you (boy) are say... in the sundress and I need to discipline you... Not that I would ever do that or anything... Really. I swear.

Oh, hell.. I love guys in drag. That's a topic for another post, though...

 
At 1:34 PM, Blogger Berk said...

Nothing like a little spanking to warm up a chilly fall or winter day.

(and on-topic, too!!)

 
At 1:37 PM, Blogger I-66 said...

Why do I get the feeling Berk's been waiting to say that and was finally provided the proper forum to do so?

I-66 does not do drag.

 
At 1:41 PM, Blogger I-66 said...

wow.. I just typed in the 3rd person.. clearly I need more dayquil.

or maybe nyquil.

 
At 1:42 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

No straight man can pull off good drag anyway. Does I-66 do spanking??

 
At 1:44 PM, Blogger I-66 said...

spanker > spankee

 
At 1:45 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

Can I give you my phone number?? ;)

 
At 1:56 PM, Blogger I-66 said...

I suppose writing it on my hand without some form of notation would be a bad idea.

 
At 2:13 PM, Blogger MMH said...

Kayla - STOP WITH THE PHONE NUMBERS. I'm calling Digits Anonymous and signing you up. You need help.

 
At 2:21 PM, Blogger DireWolf said...

straight guys do secret cross dressing well though (see my earlier post in a different thread).

nudge nudge wink wink

 
At 2:42 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

Direwolf = very very naughty.

I-66 is very special... he would get the new phone number i am going to get... for the VIPs.

Simma down, MMH!! SIMMMMMA DOWN!!

 
At 3:17 PM, Blogger I-66 said...

Hi, Kayla, thanks for posting on my blog, I really don't mean to intrude, but I can't help but say again that this is one of the funniest blogs that I've ever read, it reminds me of Seinfeld, and it's in DC (which is where I live) and all of the conversations you have are the sames ones that I have with my friends in DC.

There's so much light humor here-really, you get me laughing, boys in sundresses? Spanking? And I doubt it will be anytime soon before I see any kind of woman in an NFL jersey. Honestly, your comments are probably funnier than the post.

I spend most of my evenings on the internet, kind of de-stressing from this freakin' terrible ass war zone that I live in, and lately I just kinda hit on looking at DC area blogs, somehow I found yours, a real gem, and b/c now that I'm gone, I do miss the place, even the traffic, and I might even be a little homesick, and the things you talk about here cheer me up, because today I didn't get to see any sundresses, just another big attack and even some people died right, and I'm in a bizarre world here, where everything is backwards, and so I don't mean to get you down, I'm just kinda letting you know that you cheer me up over here with your talk of big boobs and Steelers jerseys (yeah go Steelers-the Pour House is where I catch some games) and your funny banter, which is just the thing I used to do just a few months ago, in that foo foo bar at DuPont Circle,the one who's name I can never remember, I just know it's in the Circle.

Anywho, sorry for venting, I find the whole writing thing kinda clears the head from the day's adventures and then the blog-reading-that makes me laugh and remember old times-those are precious around here!

Take care guys

 
At 3:29 PM, Blogger I-66 said...

You take care. Bloggers and readers cannot thank you enough for all that you do.

 
At 3:40 PM, Blogger Berk said...

CS - thank you for your service to our fine country!!

And Go Stillers!

 
At 3:48 PM, Blogger DireWolf said...

if you root for the Steelers, the terrorists win.

sincerely,
DireBrownsFan

I echo what I-66 said. I am so glad you can come to our site and find some humor (our lives are very humorous, I must say) and a touch of home... You have an open invitation to join us out (and see us in action) when you are back home. We will all wear sundresses (Berk included). ;)

We are also quite good with care packages...

 
At 3:50 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

Direwolf - if you are a browns fan... YOU lose. I (heart) the Skins!

 
At 3:55 PM, Blogger DireWolf said...

I think i'm going to the Skins game on Sunday, first time to a real game at RalJon or whatever it's called now.

Any tips or tricks to know?

 
At 3:59 PM, Blogger MMH said...

Um...I'd wear an NFL jersey! (as long as its not a Redskins jersey)

Thanks for reading our blog CS....and for all you do!

 
At 4:00 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

FedEx Field is what it is called now. RalJon... Give me those tickets - you are not allowed to go to the game. In fact, it is a civic duty if I-66 and I go. We need to represent...

(I-66, you are the founding member of the VIP club, btw... talk about jeooooci)

 
At 4:06 PM, Blogger Berk said...

DW - FedEx field is awful to get into and out of. No direct public trans (metro + shuttle) and parking is worse unless you have a pass to the main lots.

If you have club level tickets it's a little better. Plan on staying after the game to listen to the band and drink more while the lot empties.

Otherwise stay at home and save yourself the $$$ and headache (at least you won't have to watch your Clowns lose again).

(The ladies are gonna be pissed that this is turning into a sports thread. I didn't start it!!!)

 
At 4:09 PM, Blogger DireWolf said...

i have a parking pass. so it's cool.

what was this thread about? lamenting the end of summer?

i think girls can still wear sundresses indoors no?

 
At 7:47 AM, Blogger I-66 said...

lose again? 2-0. To lose again you have to lose first. It's not like they've blown any winnable games with stupid laterals or anything...
