Picture This…

Why is there so much badassery going on in the WordPress crib right now? Is everyone not aware that December is supposed to be the Friday of the months of the year? It is supposed to be the free pass month for all things lazy, self-indulgent, and greedy. Y’all are messing that up for me (at least the lazy part), but you know what? It is worth it. Because I love you. There I said it.

Speaking of all things badass, there is yet another event happening that I couldn’t not participate in. Julie and Byronic Man, I am talking to you. I am after your sheets. If those reading this don’t know what I am talking about, that’s a shame, but I’ll forgive you if you visit one of their pages and educate yourself. So generous.

You see, just last night Jack decided to practice his own self indigent behavior. The little fellow wore himself out making confetti of my softest-sheets-ever and didn’t hesitate when he got to the pillow cases. To top it off, like a cherry on top of a resentment sundae, he puked right in the middle of the shredded pile and then pranced off to destroy the rest of my favorite things.

I may not sleep under my sheets, but they are still an integral component of the optimal sleep environment. So, come to think of it, I am not being greedy at all. I need those sheets. Plus, who wouldn’t want to sleep on top of one of Julie’s adorable chipmonks or the hottest guy on WordPress Byronic Man?

As the rules state, I have harnessed every ounce of holiday cheer to bring you the 25toFly Christmas Card. Here it is:

A special greeting for you at my family’s expense.

Do you know what it is like to have your photo taken at every worst possible moment? Have you ever experienced the trauma of being blinded by the flash in the middle of your mascara “O” face (you know you do this ladies)? It’s impressive, really. The man you all want to have a beer with so badly can even manage to take a bad picture of himself. You may still like my Dad more than you like me, but if you keep hanging out with him for too long, you can kiss your photogenic-ness goodbye.

Dad has been capturing our sweet little distorted mug shots since the 90′s!

As if this post didn’t including enough of y’alls favorite things (my dad, contests, sexy people) I am going to leave this (rough version) here for you to ponder. The placement of mistletoe is in no way suggestive of anything other than the pure Christmas spirit.

Just kidding. It’s sexual innuendo.

US Movember Team Contest Announcement

Have you read the official Movember launch post by Le Clown yet? Go do that immediately before I give you an internet wedgie. Now that you have read the rules regarding donations, it’s time for you Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to help the US Bloggers for Movember team raise mo’ money than every team that ever existed ever. Maybe that’s not possible, but we can try. Here is how it will work:

Pay your ten cents. You know you want one.

What you will do: Go to the US Bloggers for Movember team page, register to be a team member, and make a donation. Remember, one cent counts just as much as one hundred cents, because fuck cancer! The process is so easy my long johns could do it. Unless you are my mom.
What I will do: At the end of Movember, I will enter the names of everyone who contributed to the team into a drawing. Although I may call y’all losers as a term of endearment, there will be four lucky winners chosen.
NOTE: Donations without registering for the team are MORE than welcome if you don’t care to participate in the drawing but still want to contribute.

The prize: I flirted with Tim over at SecondLunch until he agreed to illustrate a new banner for my blog. The banner will be an illustration of me and the lucky four winning bloggers doing something spiffy (with mustaches of course). Other details of the banner are a secret, but I assure you, you will want to be on it. You already know this if you are familiar with Tim’s work (I mean, who isn’t?). The winners’ blog names will be visible on the banner which I will keep up until January, and I will add a page link at the top of my blog showcasing the winners (letting their blogs forever live in infamy on 25tofly). Be on the look out for the banner teaser coming soon.

NOTE: If you “Like” the Bloggers for Movember Facebook page your name will be entered twice in the drawing for the banner position. Just be sure to send me a message or e-mail letting me know you did both so that I don’t miss it.

NOTE #102,937,821: Be sure to leave your blog link in a message with your donation or somewhere on your team member page so I can check you out.

Ready set Mo!
