Who Needs Miss America?

Our Little Miss Sunshine Online Pageant was a grand success, with nearly thirty participants and many more readers. Thanks to Dale, Coaster Punchman, and Old Lady and their mockery, idea, and plugs, we pulled it off and entertained our little blog world for a couple of days. Although Just a Cool Cat (with his lovely, flowing mullet locks) thinks we played it safe with cute photos (um, hello, did you see my Coke-bottle glasses and knock-knees?), many of us brilliantly embarrassed ourselves, to the awwww of others.

I think sKincarver, PinkFluffySlippers, and I need to get together and breed a mutant race of four-eyed, large-collared geeks. Our offspring will set the bar for nerdiness in the early years, coolness and simmering resentment in the later years.

Now, get back online and read the blogs you may not have visited until the contest. They’re all damn good.

My Tuesday soundtrack column will appear later today so that I can keep the pageant front and center a little longer.

Yes, but when will your boobiethon.com photos appear?

Thanks for thre links. I checked out all of the photos. You were all much braver than I ....

LULU: My ratings board (the ex) said maybe I shouldn't upload the photos, since some may be offended or the photo might set off an electronic riot. Still trying to decide what to do blogwise ...

LIFE: I think it's more that we all lack shame. Or are exibitionists. Great photos, aren't they?

Not upload them to boobiethon.com? I doubt they could offend; tae a look at 2005 or 2004 and you can see the nudie pics, some are quite explicit. The ex sounds like a prude. (you should see the nudie ones tenS and I sent in)

Hey, Beth!

I just ran out for lunch so I could swing by and grab a copy of the REM When The Light Is Mine DVD, which I just found out about today.

Now, just because you probably have all these performances elsewhere, don't you think you still owe it to your boys to publicize this DVD? Or, did I miss something (apologies in advance, if that's the case).

I have all of their studio releases from Chronic Town through at least Up. But, I need this type of unreleased stuff. I can't believe it took me three weeks to find out about it!!!

LULU: Oh, I'm posting photos on Boobiethon.com — I have some great ones — the ex suggested that I not publish the clothed one (very plunging neckline) on this blog to publicize it. I'll let you know when I upload them (probably tonight).

HAAHNSTER: Damn, I've let my readers down, haven't I? I'll do a full post about both the CD and DVD later this week ... as well as a Peter Buck side project.

Beth,

You ROCK!!!

more boobielicious than mine? WOW!

 
At 10/03/2006 01:39:00 PM, Blogger Beth said...

HAANSTER: Yes, yes I do.

LULU: Nope, not more boobielicious than yours ... but the photos are damn good.

I'm in.
It's about time we shook up the world.

We will destroy the "perfect body - perfect face" mentality with our race of über nerdlings!!!

p.s. I'm sure you ladies are more than lovely now. I, however, havn't changed much. Grew a tooth - got contacts - shaved the hair. S'bout it.

I want to see!!!!

Can I get a thanks for participating?

Actually thanks for letting me! I had a ton of hits on Sunday which never happens.

 
At 10/03/2006 04:45:00 PM, Blogger Grant Miller said...

And it was a great idea, too!

Yes, we had a ball.

Now, the world awaits your boobies.

BTW, really not fond of the word "boobies." But it's better than the b-word people use for the guy things. Hate that one even more.

"But it's better than the b-word people use for the guy things."

Bad-ass-long-dongs?
Big-ol'-donkey-dicks?
Beautifully-shaped-cocks?

Oh, wait...
Balls?
You probably meant Balls, right?

I don't say "boobies", I always hear Adam Sandler's voice in my head when I see that word.

I prefer "breastehses", said like Big Daddy.

SKINCARVER: I'm crushed. You lost the 'do and glasses; that's what keeps me coming back to your page. But I'm still interested in breeding our mutant race.

LULU: E-mail me at cup_coffey@yahoo.com.

GRANT MILLER: Thank you, oh, THANK YOU for making this a success!

COASTER PUNCHMAN: I like "boobies." But, you're right; the man B-word is too harsh.

HAAHNSTER: Thanks for the clarification.

BUBS: I don't like having "boobies" and Adam Sandler in the same sentence; I'm covering them up again.

Thanks to everyone who thought of this and activated the idea so successfully. I'm game for another theme sometime...now that I know how to scan photos!! I had a good look at a lot of new blogs and will re-visit soon!

Time si ticking for Boobiethon. Do it. It's liberating and it's for a good cause.

That was great fun, thanks Beth. Also, I did find a lot of great new blogs to read :) I'll be back soon!

Thanks Beth, it was fun! Plus it introduced us to Boobiethon. I just might participate in that, but mine are not as splendiferous as the ones I saw!!! I will scan them on my scanner. Hahahahaha!
