We have a winner! And I'm still nuts.

First things first.  Duh.  Because I would not be putting first things second.

The most important thing is that, TA DA!!! We have a winner for my inaugural blog giveaway.

Thank you to all who entered.  I appreciate all your lovely comments about how you love Glee.  It is awesome, isn't it?

Anyway, the winner is:  Hutch!

That's so cool! Glee is one of my most favorite shows ever, although I miss me some Jesse St. James!

Congratulations, Hutch!

Please email me at thesueniverse AT with your contact information so you can get your book!

Thanks for playing along, everyone!

In other news, Fall has fallen and I'm so happy.  I love Fall.  It's a gorgeous time of year, a time for sweaters and tights and boots and enjoying the warmth from the sun and the cool breeze on your face as you pretend to watch football but are actually taking sips from your flask.  Or maybe that's just me.

I particularly like the activities of Fall - collecting leaves and pressing them between sheets of waxed paper, eating donuts, picking pumpkins and apples and pony rides and Halloween decorations and the smell of the furnace kicking in for the first time.

Ugh.  Wait.  I hate that smell.  I always have all the windows open, which I'm sure makes the furnace work harder, but still.  I pick a not super cold day to run the furnace for the first time so that smell can dissipate.

I have a thing with smells.

But back to Fall.  I love Fall because it has two names [ah, Autumn, you are awesome as well] and it's got so many gorgeous colors and I don't get hot doing yardwork or walking around outside.  I hate being hot.  So I can partake in the outdoors.  Which is great.  Also because most of the bugs are gone and dead.

I've also decided to make a Fall Resolution.  I'm going to take a photo every. single. day.  That's something that I've wanted to do, but somehow have been too lazy to do.  I'm not sure what the hell is wrong with me [blah blah anxiety blah depression blah craziness blah really? do we have to get into this now?] but it's hard for me to actually do something I want to do when I don't feel that I'm doing something productive to balance it.  And it's worse when I'm super careful about money - although how taking photos with a camera I already own is cost prohibitive is beyond me.

But whatever.  I'm doing it.

So.  A picture every day.

Doable, right?


  1. Yes! Doable.
    I'm looking forward to those pictures. And fall is my favorite time of year too. I love the smell of the air and the way the sunlight is crisper.

  2. No WAY!! I actually won? I am so freaking excited!!! I'll email you shortly :)

    I absolutely love fall too and today is the first day it feels like it! Of course, it will be back up in the 80s by the weekend.

  3. doable? you're talking to a woman who would weld the camera to her hand if she could.


  4. Renee - Thanks! I hope you'll like the photos.

    Hutch - YAYAYAYAYA! Congratulations!

    Andygirl - ROBOCAMERA! You would make an excellent sci fi chica!

  5. thanks, hutch. for making me a loser.

    p.s. can't wait for the pics.

  6. Simone - Hutch makes us all feel like losers. Pics to come!

  7. I love the fall, too. Best season ever. And autumn makes it sound so dignified. Like, people in Britain probably only say "autumn." I've actually never been to Britain. I'm not even really sure they have fall. But if they do, they totally call it autumn.

  8. Alone - I bet you're right, it does seem very British. Having been to Heathrow - wait, no, I was at Gatwick, anyway, having spent several hours in a British airport, I must say that the use of Autumn is preferred and quite delightful.


Every time you comment, I get a lady boner.
