first day of autumn links, aka happy equinox, you hippies!

Don't worry, I'm not going to do a fall spectacular on pumpkin pie lattes or unflattering boots-leggings-poncho combos in "earthy" tones or brown and orange autumn-themed photographs of leaves and pumpkins.

Just links. One billion of them. And maybe one day soon I'll find a few moments to actually write a thing instead of posting other people's things they wrote.
