I'm A Total Whore...but it's not what you think!

Pic found here

*Sigh*  Yep.  I'm starting this post with a sigh because, to be honest, I feel pretty sheepish.  Oh, why mince words?  I feel downright stupid.  You see, for the love of blogs came up with the nifty idea of awarding 'best of category' to certain blogs.  I, in my naivete, thought this meant the fine people of FTLOB would be perusing the blogs, making the decisions and I might get a comment or two.  Mmm nope.  It's a popularity contest where you ask your pals to vote for you.



Everyone knows how redheads fare when it comes to this sort of thing.  We all know blonde's have more fun and brunettes remember it the next day but what about the redheads?  Any mention of them?  Not really.  And whys that?  Oh, right.  That would be because we're in the town square burning at the stake.  No big deal. 

So this is the part where I admit that I have no shame, completely whore myself out and implore you to save me from utter blogging humiliation.  You see, I have no illusions.  Even though I have 40 of the coolest followers in all of Bloggerdom, well...you see where I'm going with this.  What I am asking, okay, begging, is for you to help me not get totally annihilated, completely obliterated, reduced to utter ruin!!

This calls for another sigh.  *SIGH*  That's better. 

I entered under the "random" blog category and if you click on here I'm number 21 which makes me legal so you won't get into trouble!  Thank you to any of you who help me out.  Really!  I'm going to go see about a muscle relaxant now.  My sphincter has gotten squinched up from the stress of it all.


  1. I did that too...and i voted for you before I read your post!

    I tweeted to have people come vote for me. Yeah, it kinda sucks this way.

    p.s. my wv is brestos.

  2. Darling VV, I saw your blog on FTLOB and of COURSE you have my vote... just as soon as I figure out which darn button to push! Cups Up! xoxo

  3. Oh Ladies! Thank you so much I adore you both! Tri, is it safe to assume you're under the funny blog category?
    And C OC Mommy? Did you enter?

  4. Done.

    And by that I mean I submitted my vote for you.

  5. Andrew- HUGS!!!

    Tri- Voted for your cartoon hilarity. And now my ignorance...what is wv? I think it's safe to assume you're not referring to West Virginia.

  6. Hehe. wv= word verification. the letters i have to type in so that my comment is accepted.

    this comment's wv is 'cherpi', as in, i'm not too 'cherpi' in the morning without my coffee.

  7. Ahhhh. Like, check out the brestos'es on her! Wow. That one's hard to pluralize. Thanks for the illumination. :)

  8. this sort of post is precisely why I have never shared you with my friends. They would wonder what sort of crazy uninhibited and rude family I really come from. but alas, I want you to win because your writing is SO entertaining, despite the crassness of it all.

  9. I would have to say that Spazgirl is right... You are quite entertaining and inappropriate at the same time. I like to thinks it’s a gift you have. Reminds me of most of my family, Great Job! I hope you win.

  10. I'm a sucker for redheads. I got your back.

  11. Okay, I pushed LIKE and you've now got 17 votes my Darling! No, I didn't enter as I saw so many bloggy friends that I enjoy reading and I wanted to vote for you... xoxo

  12. Little Spazmatic- I love you! And you're state of denial is simply adorable. Your friends already know what kind of horrors you've been spawned from. Thank you for your help with this. You're an awesome sis.

    Anonymous- YES! It's a gift! Now if I can just convince my family...

    Brandy-son- Thank you Shugs!!! :)

    Joshua- Hurrah!! You and that pesky marriage of yours. ;) Kidding. Really. Please don't let your wife send me hate mail.

    Tony- I totally do. Name your price. I have this awesome ashtray on my desk that I use to hold my paperclips. It's all yours. Just say the word!

    C OC Mommy- Thank you so much! I actually checked out the mommy blogs this morning trying to find yours. :(

    Amanda- You're awesome! Thank you Thank you!!

  13. I would vote for you over and over again! :)

  14. I actually jumped over here from FTLOB, look at how popular you are?!? Don't lie, just relish in it, haha. You blog rocks, like really rocks. Can't wait to see more of your fun posts!

  15. That's why I didn't enter...those things are somewhat rigged toward blogs that already have lots of followers. Good luck though!

  16. You know I voted for you....I live for your sarcastic humor and the more inappropriate behavior the better!

  17. Mandy_Fish- You're a doll!

    Sunshine- Thank you and miss you. :(

    TGN- Thank you! I've read a few of yours as well. Started with your birthday post. Pretty sure I'm following...if not heading there now to do so.

    Ixy- Yup. I was afraid mine was going to be my only vote.

    Seeley- Um really?? Where do you think I learned it from??

  18. UM YEAH.
    I did the same exact thing. "Oh, this is cool. People at FTLOB's will pick someone to feature every month in a category. New followers. YAY!"
    BUT NO. Now it's all awkward and uncomfortable. I feel like I'm in the girls bathroom asking to under the stalls for people to vote for me. And it feels so competitive. I wasn't going to do a post but I don't want to be completely embarrassed with no votes. So alas, I think I'll have to do one too...

  19. For a red head you are really kicking some ass in the popularity contest. You got my vote! And don't worry, you are not alone. I shamelessly whored myself out too, and it is paying off haha. Thanks for voting! Oh and PS, you can add me to your list of cool followers now :)

  20. Tricia- I had the whole mental image of you going stall to stall asking for votes and maybe some toilet paper. Funny!

    Lindsay- There's something to be said for it. I've been begging everyone I know and their relatives to stop over and vote for me. It's shameless... but effective.
