Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Pumpkin Spice Overload Edition


When people know that you like or collect something, you tend to get gifts related to that particular thing. Since my love of pumpkin/pumpkin spice flavored everything is well known, I’d say that 80% of the gifts that I received for my birthday were somehow pumpkin-inspired. Add that to the fact that every time that I go to the store I see a new pumpkin spice product and I am pretty much immersed in all things pumpkin. This is not a bad thing; so far I haven’t burned myself out on it, but check back with me in November when I’m going through the motions. So far today I’ve had pumpkin spice coffee and pumpkin spice oatmeal and my day has just begun. Yes, I realize that between this and my brunch obsession that I am really hurting my street cred.


If pumpkin turns out to be some sort of cure for cancer or the magic elixir that makes people immortal, I’m in very good shape. Dorian Gray had his portrait; I have copious amounts of pumpkin spice products stockpiled.

What else do I have a lot of? Pop culture news! It’s time to share that with you with this edition of the roundup. So while I look into pumpkin spice detox programs, get yourself caught up on all the pop culture that you might have missed.
