Vote for me! I'll kiss your baby!

I realize I just posted, like minutes ago, but I was checking out my statcounter and noticed that someone came here via Social Luxe Lounge . I've never heard of it but the tag line is "Pamper. Polish. Primp. Socialize. Party!" which makes it sound like a cyber meet-n-greet for Women of Elegant Leisure. I imagine them all wearing caftans and lounging on zebra print divans as they type about their grueling days filled with correspondence to diplomatic wives, re-wrapping their turbans and ordering the servants to dust behind the water feature in the foyer. This is obviously a group I need to spend more time with. So I started poking around to see where my link was and guess where I found it? On their nomination page for their annual awards under the Funniest Blog category. I've been nominated! Which one of you kids did it? Fess up.

I'll be honest with you here, I use to make fun of people who put those little buttons up on their blogs that say, "Sassiest Blog!" or "Third Nicest Blog on the Web!" or "I'm a Blogger! Love me!" But now I know that I was just bitter and jealous. Because being nominated for something is fun. Even if I haven't even heard of the group giving the award, or the prize that comes with it, or the leverage being Social Luxe Lounge's 2009 Funniest Blog would give me if I won. Line jumping privileges at the DMV? A corner booth at Chili's. A free Slurpee machine! So help me, if there is a Slurpee machine in the prize package and you people don't vote every single day I will go from being a mildly funny blog to a Blog of Fiery Rage and Fury. It will be nothing but stories about mimes and hangnails and sick kittens from here on out. And I mean it.

They say that just to be nominated is an honor. I'll let you know if that's true after the votes have been counted.

Couldn't have happened to a better blog! I'm honored to just know you. Swoon.

Well I nominated you, but hopefully I'm just one of many. It was Amanda's idea and I just followed suit. Here's to a new Slurpee machine!

I think I prefer the Icee over the Slurpee. Can we still be friends?

The thing with the Slurpee is that after you take about 5 sucks through the straw, there's no more liquid, just ice. Then you have to stir it up or wait until it thaws before you can suck some more. And while the Icee has the same defect, I feel like you can take about 8 sucks before the liquid runs out. Also Mavrick's selling any size Icee for 99 cents.

Gina loves the Mavrick.

I had never heard of the Social Luxe Lounge or their awards, or I would have jumped in and also nominated you. Instead, I'll vote for you and hope you win. Because if you start blogging only about sad things, my world will turn gray.

I am so excited for you! I Voted... you can kiss Bella Sunday!

Valerie said...

I voted. I followed the link, knowing at any moment I could be hacked, but I did it anyway. That's how much living in the reflected glory of your fame means to me. Er, I mean, that's how much you mean to me.

I am totally dedicated to getting you the grand prize of Funniest Blog. I voted twice yesterday using my two different email addresses. Today I stepped it up a notch and voted from my computer at work with both email addresses, then I logged into another machine and voted again using both addresses. When I get home I will do it from my computer there as well. See how much I love you and your blog! = )

I've voted for you three times. I guess that means you'll be coming to visit me so you can kiss my baby. Three times.

Man! I totally should have promised to kiss babies. Now I'll look like a copycat if I do...

Good luck in this ding-dang contest; your blog is hilarious!
