I'd like to thank the Academy and Sam Johnson

The fact that he's called it a "beauty pageant" is, in and of itself, cool as hell. The fact that I'm a contestant is just downright friggin' A!

Yes, I have been nominated by Sam himself for Miss RSJS.

Sam, you are da bomb, dude. Simply da bomb.

And am I totally freaking out unnecessarily over an online beauty pageant nomination by a fellow-blogger? You bet your sweet pattootie I am!!

When I called my sister to tell her of my nomination, she asked what picture was used. I said, "Remember when we went to Branson and you took that picture of me looking like a crazy she-pirate?" She groaned and said, "Oh man...could you at least email the guy and ask him if you can submit a different picture?"

Nah. I kinda like it. Otherwise I wouldn't have used it as my profile pic, right?

So here's what I'm asking -
Vote for me please oh please oh merciful heavens PLEASE???

It's as simple as emailing Sam and saying you want to vote for me. That's it!

And in all fairness, I will also link the other three (so far) nominees:

Allison from Allison Lives

Tiffany from Blown Fuse

April from April (I couldn't find a profile link)

So, check them out, but definitely come back and vote for me. Please?

I voted for you too, not because your a great person (which you are), but because you know where I live and frankly your a wee bit scary sometimes!!!

Just to let you know, we're looking for other nominations as well. So don't start voting yet until we get them all in by next Thursday.

By the way, Diva, I like that photo. It was also the only one I could find fast enough. It's natural.

Courtney, yes if I win you can darn well bet that you will be personally named in my acceptance speech!!!

To all those who have voted - YOU GUYS ROCK!! I'll let you know when the "real" voting begins. *blushes*

Sam, thanks! I obviously liked the pic as well or I'd have never emblazoned it in my profile, but my sister seems to think I should be mortified. She's just no fun.

We....the people
