Where My Hotties At?

Alright folks! You remember back in the day when I was nominated for THE HOT BLOGGER CALENDAR? That makes it sound like someone truly thought I was hot and that's the way I like it to sound, but that's not the actual story. ACTUALLY, a drunk bloggy friend had a few too many and went "nominating" people- but you know what, I take charity, so that was OK with me. It was just a step closer to my dream of being a MILF.

All the begging, pleading, and broken promises only got me 82 votes (which really was quite an accomplishment), but not enough to beat out the hundreds and thousands of votes that the other bitches got. I heard there was cheating, that's all I'm saying. No hard feelings.

So I was NOT QUITE HOT ENOUGH for their calendar, but I'm just big enough a loser for the NOT QUITE HOT ENOUGH BLOGGER CALENDAR- fellow sore losers, Happy Hour Sue and McMommy's alcohol induced brainchild. In an effort to reminisce on the days when we had it going on- to give the little "not hot" people a chance to be seen and heard!

EVERYONE can and must participate! Current picture, old picture, it doesn't matter. If I am unclear, which is certainly possible, likely, go here, they can explain it better.

In all honesty, it started off funny, but I have a theory.

Everyone is their own worst critic. As I was reading through the entries this morning, I saw pictures of the young them (their 'hot' pics) and then their current pictures (older, tired, more stressed). I have to tell you, I honestly think they looked better in the 'afters'. The wisdom, added responsibility, marriage, kids, whatever it was- their perception of worn and no longer "hot" was more real and more attractive- and it's always good to hear that- since sometimes when we look in the mirror we might not feel it.

So that got me thinking, that this could be huge. This could turn out to be a great affirmation tool! Out here in the blogosphere (and in the real world) we're always second guessing ourselves, feeling self- conscious, and our insecurities are being exposed. All we want is a little reassurance to make us feel better.

My underlining theme this week, along with porn, has been to spread the love and pay it forward and give each other a boost. This is just what we need! So gather your hot picture and get them over there so we can all go tell you how awesome and hot you are!!!

But before you leave... watch this little gem!

reply to your comments:
Naw, I don't scare that easily. But my sisters, my mother, my mother in law, my sister in law and various persons including the evil wife of one of my husband's business partners have all either left me a comment or made a spoken comment about my ridiculous blog... so I get a little self conscious :)
