Best Monday Ever

Why? This is why:

  • The Movember Winners Banner is finished and revealed. See above. It is better than I ever imagined.
  • The accompanying Movember 2012 page is complete. Winners can go bask in their glory.
  • It rained this morning, and I actually had an umbrella on me … for once.
  • I get to be La Becca for one whole week of A Becca on Fire on Le Clown’s blog.
  • Did you read the last bullet point?!

I will still be working on the Fly Blog Award, I didn’t forget. But when you are on fire, it’s hard to concentrate.

Movember Contest Winners Reveal – Vlog Style

Who vlogs on a blog? Boundary pushers. Free thinkers. Entrepreneurs. Imbeciles. Me.

Before you click play I have a few last words. I intended for the vlog to be more professional. I wanted it to have more jokes and music. I also wanted it to be highly pixelated and choppy at some points, because that is considered arty. I wanted it to be arty.

Just kidding. I lost “my” internet connection after the first recording session and had to resort to recording the last few bits on my Iphone. That may be pathetic, and I probably just gave you all a reason to label me as cheap, but I see this as a courageous move. I could have quit and left you all hanging. I could have thrown my computer off of the third story balcony. But I didn’t, so here is what resulted. It went okay.

That move was for you Billy Zane Aneroidocean. Did you really think I was going to put on my tutu?

So again, the winners were:

Madame Weebles

Chris De Voss 

Katie – SLP_Echo

Jon - Brother Jon

I will e-mail you all later today letting you know how you can get  in touch with Timmer to let him know how you would like to be illustrated. I wish you could all be in the banner. I assume that would take Tim quite some time, and then he wouldn’t be able to go drunk fountain splashing with me. So we can’t do that. Congrats to the winners and thank you to everyone who participated. As if I haven’t said it enough.

Also, I added the page I spoke about at the top of my blog titled “Movember 2012″. I will be working on the blurbs about the winners to complete that page. In the meantime, everyone can go read an end of Movember post by Emily of The Waiting over at ACOF.

25toFly Movember Drawing Contestant List

I know I said I would post this Friday, but I am impatient and a pathalogical bliar (blog liar). So, here I have compiled the list of bloggers who qualify for my banner drawing (so far but with only two days left). The number beside each name represents how many times your name is entered in the drawing depending on whether or not you donated AND liked the Bloggers for Movember page.

the winners are

Not being announced in this post. HA PSYCH!

Please double-check me, I may appear to posses advanced intelligence but lists and counting dumb me down. Remember, a donation is required to qualify for the drawing. If I overlooked you, please tell me in the comments or I am going to feel worse than the Shamwow guy does about wet-vacs.

That’s 25 bloggers. Did I just count good?! Good luck to everyone. If you donate between today and Friday, or if I goofed and left you off, I will gladly add your name to the list.

And finally, to Tim, I didn’t include you in the list since you are illustrating the prize, but I did want to recognize the fact that you contributed to the moon on this thing. I also wanted to remind you to make sure you put your signature somewhere on the final banner (I am sure that was unnecessary for me to tell you) and to write a special thank you directed towards you. You did a LOT for the Movember movement. No, that’s an understatement. If it weren’t for you, my contest would have sucked a prune. Your Facebook timeline covers, my banner, your Movember posts, and your donations, likes and comments really made a wonderful difference in this whole experience.  THANK YOU from the bottom of my long johns (I promise that isn’t how it sounds). Now, will you go out with me? Be sure to wear that tie and we can dance to some RAC remix. We will end the night splashing around drunk in a fountain somewhere screaming “‘Merica!!!!!!!!!!!!!” at everyone. How’s that sound?

Look out for the final VIDEO announcement revealing the winners next week!

Polls Are Not For Strippers

Movember is coasting along nicely as we approach the half way mark. Wait, what? November is almost half way over already? I suppose time flies when you’re saving balls. Everyone needs to go read the latest Movember update by Madame Weebles. If you have registered for the US Bloggers for Movember team and haven’t made your donation yet to try your luck at winning a spot on my banner, you only have a few weeks left to do so. Do I need to light a fire under your ass? You know that’s how Le Clown got his blog name, right?

I’d also like to suggest that y’all read Jason’s Movember post. Although he may end up with a serious case of blue balls by the end of the month, at least he will have healthy blue balls. Now that’s sacrifice.

Poor Jason

On a third note, I am starting to get jealous of all the budding mustaches the guys are showing off. I am ready to get my fake mustache on. My sophisticated drumstache was featured in Open Concept’s music video inspired by Movember, but now it is time for the official 25tofly Movember ‘stache. But of what shall my mouth wreath be constructed?  I want you to decide.

Please vote in the poll below to seal my mustache fate. You can vote up until this Saturday, November 17th at midnight. Come Sunday, I will prepare the winning mustache and commence the camera phone action. Then on Monday, I will post the photo of my sexiest mustache face on the Bloggers for Movember Facebook page. Choose wisely, or tell me your own idea.

Also, please stay tuned Friday for my own version of “Faddah Friday” inspired by none other than Brother Jon.

What a Tease!

As y’all can see, the bannerific Movember prize teaser is up and shaking its ass for you. Please do not throw ones at it. Instead, take those dollars and donate them to the US bloggers for Movember team. Again, all you have to do to compete for one of those handsome looking mustached positions on my banner is click the Movember button to the right in my sidebar. It will lead you to the original contest announcement post which includes the US team page link where you can register to become a team member (easy as a prostitute) and donate any amount you want.

Again, come the end of November and out of all of the registered members who donate to the US team, four will be chosen at random and illustrated along side of me on my banner (created by the charming dashing smashing Mr. Tim). You will also win a spot on an added page link at the top of 25tofly that will recognize you as a winner and spotlight your blog… indefinitely! Remember that you can also get your name entered twice in the drawing by “Liking” the Bloggers for Movember Facebook page on top of joining and donating. Just be sure to let me know that you have done both.

I never thought I would feel so passionately about a cause like this, but it feels great to think that I can help make a difference. I give special thanks to the team of people who trusted letting me participate in this thing. I can’t wait to see the final result of this project.  In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned in on the Facebook page for links to all of the outstanding Movember blog posts throughout the month. From serious to side-splitting, some truly incredible stories by some amazing writers are being shared. Don’t miss out.
