A Call to Arms

Okay, first of all, you have to keep this just between us, 'kay? I don't want nikkicrumpet to hear. See, here's the thing. Nikki won a prize in the SITS Blogathon last month. Not so much "a" prize as "THE" prize, the grand prize of the whole huge giveaway event. That prize was my - whoops, I mean an - autographed picture of George Clooney.

Let me repeat that (just because I like typing his name):

GEORGE CLOONEY.
(*choir of angels singing the Hallelujah chorus*)

I'll pause to let you (okay, myself) wipe the drool off your (okay, my) face.

Are we all back now? Great.

Here's the thing. Nikki has decided that George needs a new home.

!!!!!

She is having a contest over on her (hilarious, well-written and gosh-darn cute - have you seen her doggies?) blog in which she will award the best commenter with the picture of George.

!!!!!

Now, we all KNOW I need this picture. Okay, I just really, really, really WANT this picture. I mean, I actually saw (as in, paid money to see) Solaris IN THE THEATER (the movie from which it appears this picture was taken), folks. I saw From Dusk 'Til Dawn. Even Batman & Robin. I watched The Facts of Life and Roseanne and that first, lesser-known, not-very-good E/R.

Now, some other (more rapacious, covetous, and willing to cast aspersion type) gals have already commented in their quest to keep George from his rightful home. Some (and they shall remain nameless *cough*wherearemyangels*cough*) have gone so far as to sling a bit of mud in my direction.

This is why I need your help! Anyone who doesn't want the George picture for herself (not that I get that, but hey, whatever floats yer boat), could you please help me out? Could you pop by Blah, blah, blah, Blog and leave a comment in support of my quest? Pretty, pretty please? Remember, it takes a village, people, it takes a village...

In the meantime, I'm going to work on my official entry comment. It needs to be a masterpiece and frankly I haven't had enough caffeine to get my synapses firing yet this morning. I have to think about how to word my comment so that it is so eloquent, so fantastic, so funny, with just the right hint of desperation (as if this post doesn't already reek of it) that Nikki will see the light and send George to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

So please, take a moment, drop by Nikki's contest and put in a good word for me, will ya? I'd be ever so obliged! But.... if you want George for yourself, forget you ever read this post, mmmkay? 'Cause one thing I *don't* need is more competition!

UPDATE: I just finished my comment. You can read it here. I appreciate those of you who have already chimed in over there with your support. You are the BESTEST!!!! *mwah* Now, I just have to wait ONE WHOLE WEEK until Nikki makes her top five selections, after which is when one of her two ridiculously cute dogs, Ozzie, will choose the winner.

I'm just going to dash off to PetCo for some gourmet doggie treats to send as a bribe - whoops, I mean in appreciation of - a certain mini-Schnauzer...

Ummmm I guess I failed to mention that calling me charming names and linking people to my blog won't get you anywhere........OKAY it will! I can be schmooozed just like anyone else. And very nice job with the compliments lol. I love the post...And your song...well I tried to sing it to ozzie...but he ran from the room. I'm pretty sure it was the vocals not the lyrics! Thanks for the Mega laughs this morning...its a great start because now I have to head to work. You outdid yourself!

nikkicrumpet said...

Oh and by the way..did you have your speakers on....because George left a message for you....It's short so ya have to be listening closely.

Ronnica said...

I totally left a comment on your behalf. Check it out.

Oh, and your comment was precious!

Debbie said...

I will support you in your George quest. He belongs with you. Clearly.

Carrie said...

I went over and left a comment, but I must tell you--you can have him. blech...

I LOVED your story. You have to win with that masterpiece! HAVE TO!

Oh, I am the worst bloggy friend! I forgot to go back and caption your kitty and didn't even answer you about your favicons...sorry! They are showing up now, no thanks to me. So sorry! Hubby is at home this week and he glares at me if I spend too much time on the computer when he's here. " )

Anna Lefler said...

Watch out for that Nikkicrumpet! She's a crafty one. In fact, she's the one the Beastie Boys wrote that song about. (Yes, I dangled a preposition. It's been a long day.)

Good luck in the contest!!

:^) Anna

I refuse to take responsibility for any of my commenters who refer to anyone with the "skank" adjective lol. I did say dumb and slutty myself...but see I was trying to discourage any other ladies from entering the contest so your odds of winning would go up LOL....and Ozzie says if he does pick you...he will hold you to the video promise! So it's a good thing you're practicing lol

Jennifer said...

LOL--I will post a message in support of your quest. I can live w/out George--but if it were Gerard Way I would HAVE to dominate the competition. I hope you win!!

Vickie said...

I put my 2 cents in for you and George. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love it when people come over and leave a comment, who doesn't. I may have some scrapping talent, but boy are you witty. If I talk about my life, it sounds like a college professor talking. I have seen your comments around since I joined SITS, last week. As soon as I see your picture, I go for your comment. I know it will be funny. I was happily surprised when I saw your comment this morning. Thanks again for visiting.

NJDecorator said...

I am all for you - since you seem to really want it. Left you a voice of support - Good Luck!

WheresMyAngels said...

One Word......







SKANK




lol

WheresMyAngels said...

oh and stop buttering up Nikki!

cocokrispybeans said...

Seriously...it is SOOOOO obvious that GC belongs with you.

I'm going now.

Oh, and I may have to throw down with the contender that called you a Skank. You know, I defend my peeps.

Unless she's exceptionally bigger than me, in which case I reserve the right to whimper and run. I love you, but I want to live.

heathersister said...

Well dang girl, that is one of the best posts I have ever read. You should win just for that. Good Luck!

bwhahaha! I hope you win.. and I am very amused that there were two "heathers" in a row on roll call over at SITS this morning :-)
