So yeah, I forgot to buy milk. Even though I was actually AT the grocery store yesterday. And thought about it. But decided that I didn't need it.
Actually, I didn't even decide that. Instead, I thought about buying milk and then my attention was diverted by the cheese room [yes, the store I was at has a cheese room. It's about the size of galley kitchen and filled from floor to ceiling with delicious types of cheese. I spend an in ordinate amount of time there.] and even though I WALKED RIGHT PAST the milk, I didn't get any.
Which is kind of typical of my shopping trips. They always turn into some kind of debacle, where I forget what I really came in to get or spend all my money on bags of spinach [they were on sale! And we love spinach!] or actually remember what I needed but still, somehow, walk right past it because LOOK! The yogurt comes in a new package! PRETTY.
And while this may not be a debacle to write home about, it is a debacle to write on my blog about.
I kind of love that word.
Also, it's time for October's Raw Photos Contest.
Andygirl and I host a delightful Raw Photos contest each month on Flickr. And as Andygirl and I have noted, September's topic [Back to School] was a bit too narrow, turning it in to quite the debacle, since only two people entered. [But thanks so much for entering, Lizzydanger & Teejayphotography! You rock!]
So yeah, a giant whoopsie, a flagrant misstep. And on our second contest. Nice.
But you know what's great? You can learn from your mistakes, even spectacular ones, and rise above. Really. You can!
So in an effort to be more inclusive and overcome our fantastic error, we're bringing you the fantabulous big tent topic for October:
AUTUMN WHERE YOU LIVE!!
What's autumn look like in your neck of the woods or patella of the subdivision or tibia of the downtown brownstones?
Lots of leaves turning colors?
Damnable heat and humidity?
Still more greenery?
Show us what you've got!
Here's a quick summary of the rules: You get to enter up to two  photos during the week the contest is open. The only limitations are that the photos have to be yours and you CANNOT Photoshop your photo. Play around all you want while you are taking the picture, but don't mess around after. The complete rules are on the Flickr page.
Entries begin OCTOBER 1st and run for one week. THAT'S TOMORROW!!
So get cracking and submit here.
The winner's photo will be posted on our blogs Crazy with a side of Awesome Sauce and The Suniverse, our Twitter feeds @andygirl and @TheSuniverse, and on Flickr.
Don't forget - there's still time to comment on my Glee post and win a copy of Filled with Glee! Please help me not turn this into some sort of debacle by having only one entry and that being a spam comment that I accidentally published because I was woozy from antihistamines and Advair.
