Because that’s how I roll…

I’m doing a contest anyway. Because it would make me happier to give the money away than to keep it for myself! And, at great risk of being called a copycat and a hack, I’m doing a “name that photo” contest like the Pioneer Woman. Of course, the photo I’ve chosen is nothing like the […]

This photo had me cracking up so that Chloe came running. When I showed her the photo she said “boodylicious!” She had me cracking up all over again!

Oh My Stars!!!…
Is that ME?!?
Oh, wait.
While I may have in one moment or another worn a short beige something-or-other with thigh-high black stockings, and even possibly gone shirtless…
I would never Be Caught Dead with the tag hanging out…
how tacky.

I just snorted a little Evie. My goodness your killing me over here. The first thing that came to mind was “Wedge-a-licious”. Much like Fergi-licious but um, not. ;)

How am I going to choose?? All of you have had me laughing maniacally with your comments and captions!

You guys are FUNNY!!

You decided on a contest….how fun…
I love the picture!! I laughed out loud and hot mulled apple cider squirted out of my nose…so I have cleaned myself up and studied the picture and this is what I came up with…

“Getting Your Panties in a Bunch”
or how about
“Real Men, Real Wedgies”

Have fun choosing!! Great idea…

Okay here’s mine:

I’m starting with the man on the field,
I’m asking him to fix his shorts,
And no message could have been any clearer,
If you want to make the world a better place, put on a shirt and fix your shorts….

(sung to “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson)

It’s silly I know but it came to me right before I fell asleep last night!

Have fun judging :)

I Want to Share the Love

So I’m getting ready to make my first $25 from the ads on the left side of the page there and, in the spirit of one of my blog mentors (she doesn’t know me from mud) Pioneer Woman, I feel like I should give that back to the folks who made the $25 possible. You, […]

Ooh! How about to the first person who comments! LOL.

Take your $25 and go get a pedicure, Evie. Have some you time!

whimsigal - November 28, 2007 - 3:48 pm

Jessica! How’s NaNoWriMo going? I wrote on November 1 and then never picked it up again. LOL I have issues.

Thanks for your suggestion, though I think pedicurists in NC might hunt you down if I were to take you up on it. Your first suggestion was pretty good, too! :)

I wrote about 8,000 words on my first project, got tired of it, and then wrote 6,000 on another one I am still working on. But I have been so busy I haven’t been able to write like I want to. Here’s to lazy winter weekends of writing!

Reward yourself!

kalurah - November 28, 2007 - 4:34 pm

I think since Pioneer Woman was mentioned, you should have a little name that photo type contest!
I think a gift cert. would be a good idea, as well.
I think it’s very endearing and says ALOT about you, that you want to give back to your readers.
you sweetie, you!

Rinnyboo - November 28, 2007 - 7:42 pm

I like the ‘name this photo’ idea. You have many lovely pictures to choose from, I am sure.

The gift certificate idea is good. Maybe for something like Amazon where people can get a variety of stuff.

You are so generous to offer to give away your $25!

Mama Podkayne - November 28, 2007 - 8:05 pm

I love contests! But I agree that you should treat yourself.


Alison - November 28, 2007 - 8:28 pm

I think you should treat yourself to something special that you wouldn’t ordinarily do for yourself….but if you insist on giving it away, a gift cert. is always good, and easy to mail. But I still think you should treat yourself!!!

whimsigal - November 28, 2007 - 9:15 pm

I don’t think I could possibly treat myself!

I will do this…I will take a tally and by Friday will let the majority rule. How’s that sound?


kalurah - November 29, 2007 - 8:33 am

ooooh. shall I tilt the scales here, by saying I think you should treat yourself, instead?!?!?!?
(tee, hee.)

Stephanie - November 30, 2007 - 12:01 am

I love the new banner!

As to the contest – I got nothin’.

whimsigal - November 30, 2007 - 2:34 am

kalurah, I’m going to buck the rules I set up and give away the money anyway!


THanks! It took FOREVER to get it right.

Tune in tomorrow for the contest…

KMDuff - November 30, 2007 - 7:27 am

Beautiful new heading banner. :)

I don’t have any great ideas.

The name that photo contest is cute. :)
