At long last, George is MINE

And no, I am not talking about George Washington, either. (Though I wouldn't object to a few million of these turning up at my door....)




I'm talking about George Clooney. Yes, he is MINE. Well, in 8x10, glossy photo format, anyhow. My little ditty, set to the tune of The Rainbow Connection, won the contest over at nikkicrumpet's blog and George is on his way to my house!!

*Happy Dance*



Of course, now I have to make good on my promise to record a video of myself singing the song that I wrote. I have already lined up a guitarist to accompany me and she's promised that her husband will do the filming. I may need to have my beloved Hubby assist me in the video editing (not sure, for example, if I can Photoshop myself in a video...). Now, this video will NOT be going onto Youtube. It will languish in relative obscurity on either Nikki's or my blog, thankyouverymuch. I do not have any desire to draw wider attention to this than the (fantabulous but small) blog readership I already can claim. Because, you know, I don't want to look like a total fool for a worldwide viewing audience. I have no desire to go viral. I have no desire to have the virus I already have, for Pete's sake!

So, as soon as I can line up my video assistants and tear myself away from the bathroom for more than ten minutes at a time, the video will be made, and oh, what a fantabulous video it will be! (EEEEK!)

Oh, and I would be most remiss if I didn't extend a heartfelt and hearty (and generously spritzed with Lysol, as I don't want to go viral on y'all for sure) THANK YOU to all of my bloggy friends who supported my campaign to bring George to his rightful home. You all are the greatest!!! And as for those who called me names, like, for example, "skank" all around the blogosphere? A generous Pbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbt!! to you! Hee!

You better keep him under lock and key! I know lots of ladies who grew green with envy when you won this!

Thanks for sharing in my SITS day with me!

Yeah!!! All is right with the world. For at least 10 minutes.

I wonder if George has a facebook page - sure bet he would LOVE to see the video...why yes, I would love to borrow him for the Holidays. That way I won't be technically drinking "alone" when I hide out in my closet with a box of wine.

It's really not fair that you won't claim your other prize, I mean really. He looked kinda cute sleeping on that couch, he could look just as cute sleeping on yours. It could be like one of those body pillows.

Yay! Your song was so cute and creative! I can't wait for your debut online performance-- and hope you are feeling better soon!!!

Ronnica said...

Congrats to you dreams coming true!

I'm glad that Ozzie could make your day...who knew you would make such a tasty dog treat! I was supposed to mail dear George today....now don't kill me..but it will have to wait until Friday...life just sorta got in the way of my trip to the postoffice. I have to have the proper mailing package so as not to dent, fold, or otherwise damage beautiful George. Congrats...and ozzie says you need a pinch more salt!

Hahaha, I think I am getting into the battle of the George a little late here. Looks like some good clean fun. I may want to join in.
