Congratulations to Christina Romacker whose outfit selection garnered almost 2 billion votes and catapulted my blog into the most visited web site in the history of the world. Well, in my neighborhood, at least.
Christina has won a free hair do from KINK Hair Salon, a Painter For A Day from Kennedy Painting, and an in-home photo session from Karen Hendrix Photography. A very cool prize pack indeed, and I would like to take a quick moment to thank them, my awesome partners. All three are companies I’ve done business with for a long time and run by people I know and trust, and I would encourage you to give them a whirl the next time you need new hair, paint, or pics.
Anyhoo, now here’s the twist that has kept me awake at night for the past three weeks.
Some time between the moment I tried on the striped dress in the dressing room and thought it looked like dog butt and posted in on my blog as a big loser, and the time that you all told me how much you liked it… I really fell in love with it. Like, put it on every night and play fashion show in my mirror love. Like, take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant love. And to make matters worse, one of our Listen To Your Mother sponsors, Bronx and Diba, hooked me up with these fierce shoes that make me feel a little bit like Lady Gaga meets Jesus risen from the dead and they look super kick ass with the dress.
In short, I stepped out of my Asics shoe box of comfort and I’m ready to slide down that pole and make a dollar the hard way.
And I decided that this show is a big deal for me and I want to feel awesome as I have a stroke reading my essay in front of hundreds of people because I haven’t spoken in public for like four years.
So I spoke with Christina, and she’s cool with me wearing the striped dress. I believe her exact words were, “I don’t really care as long as I get all the cool shit.” And I spoke with Alexis (who submitted the striped dress) and as a thank you she and a friend will be my special VIP guests at the Listen To Your Mother show.
I don’t actually have any VIP privileges so all that really means is that I’m sending her two tickets and I might introduce her to my parents.
And, this is the last time I’ll bug you all about this, but it would be super fly if you came to see me at the show. I will sign your chest and maybe even bust out a backspin. Trust me – it’s going to be epic.
