Join the Madness

Tuesday, January 4, 2011


There's only one thing I didn't like about the Eye Candy Blogfest this weekend.  That was trying to decide who posted my favorite picture so I could award a prize. 

It was tough going, friends. 

There was a little bit of everything offered up for our viewing pleasure.  Family snapshots, landscapes, beefcakes and (what's the female equivalent of a beefcake?).  In short, there were a lot of great pictures and just when I thought I found a favorite, I'd move on to the next blog and change my mind.

I'm a Libra, you know. Changing my mind is what I do best...because making it up is something I only do when I'm forced into a corner.

I promised a prize, though so I there was no skirting the issue. A winner must be selected.

After much hemming and hawing. After considerable head scratching and yelping, I've picked a winner.

Drumroll please

The winner of the First (annual?) Eye Candy Blogfest is......

He posted this picture that made me bust out laughing. 

Reid, give me a holler and we'll discuss your prize package!  MissVSpeaks(at)gmail(dot)com.

But WAIT!!!

That's not all, folks!

I also need to declare a winner from the introduce-yourself-to-Peter-McKay contest from last week. I've put up a permanent link to his site over there in the sidebar.  See it?  The superhero?  Click on him whenever you need a dose of funny in your life and through the magic of URL linkage, you'll be instantly transported to his site.  

But I digress...

You wanna know who the other winner is, right?


And the winner is.....

(cue the confetti and balloon drop)

So, Nicole you'll get a copy of Peter McKay's Dirty Dog or Welcome to the Nuthouse.  Let me know which one you prefer!

Tomorrow, friends, I am discussing another problem with my pants.  Seems to be a bit of a theme around here lately.

Problem #1
Problem #2
Problem #3

Congratulations to the winners! The photo was well chosen, Young Skywalker.

The female of beefcake is cheesecake. I'm not making that up.

Thank you for a wonderful introduction to the world of blog festing. Alex has been trying to talk me up to it, but I hadn't yet taken the plunge. :)
