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!!
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!
