You Can’t Win if You Don’t Play

Isn’t that how that old saying goes?

Last week I accidently entered a contest over at The Byronic Man.  I read his blog post made a flippant comment and then moved on with my life.  Come to find out that blog post was part of a weekly contest he puts on called the Weekly Question of the Week and my flippant comment caused me to become a finalist.  I should have known it was a contest, I mean, it was right there in the post and not even printed in fine print.

So, it is with some trepidation that I am telling you this and if you care to, you may check out the other finalists and place your vote.  I am not entirely sure I want to win because then I would be expected to come up with even more brilliance as I would become his featured blogger of the week.  I don’t know how much brilliance I can spare and still retain enough for my blog.

But there it is.  Vote.  Or not.  For me.  Or not. (Wow, I would really suck at politics!)  But whatever you do you really should check out The Byronic Man.  He is good for a laugh.  Or two.

Oh, yeah – here is the link.  That might come in handy if you choose to see what the heck I am babbling about.

      It is rather funny. Thanks for your vote of confidence regarding my quantity of brilliance, although I am not quite as sure about it as you seem to be.
      I don’t like that you don’t have a like button anymore since moving to .org because I can’t be lazy and just click a button. It makes me actually come up with a comment. 🙂 Other than that, I really do like the new layout.

      OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD!!! Immediate upon reading this I leapt to my feet, and while standing on my tippy toes did several hula hoop hip moves with my arms raised above my head all the while saying “oh yeah, oh yeah, whoot, whoot”. Husband looked at me like I had lost my mind (or he was just completely overwhelmed by the awesomeness of my dance moves) as I spewed fourth as if in one single word “TwistedDomesticGoddessisback! You know the one who had crappy internet all this time and has not been able to see my blog in forever, she is back, she is back!!”
      Hehehehe – you rock. Oh, and in case you could not tell – I am very glad to see you back in my little blogging world. 🙂

      • oh too funny and I feel so LOVED!I did the same thing i kept saying I have to see if I have SHOES I have to see if I have SHOES and of course the whole frat house is like ummm no you have slippers on then I could get your blog and I”m like “SYWEET I HAVE SHOES!!!!” SO you see everyone thinks we’re equally as crazy so it’s all good! Good luck in your contest I will try and get over there but I have so much downloading,updating,and whatever else to do that my computer wouldn’t allow me to do atm.I’ve MISSED YOU!

    You are now in the lead! And you have more than enough brilliance, wit, and wonderfulness to share…

      Oh my. I am not sure I am comfortable being in the lead, I am more of a middle of the pack, blending in kinda girl. I just didn’t want to come in last! 🙂
      Thanks for your kind words, you are so sweet.
