First of all, I'd like to announce that today is my 1000th post! I began blogging on October 1, 2005, very sporadically at first, daily for quite a while now. Thanks for making this "hobby" so fun!
I know. You haven't been able to sleep for 2 weeks. Me neither.
But our waiting is over; today's the day to post your ugly mug, or if you're not posting, to vote for the ugliest mug.
Just leave your link below, and we'll come check you out. Voting closes at midnight; I'll announce the Queen of of the Ugly Mugs tomorrow. And show you what she/he wins! If the winner is a "he," I will of course change the title to "King." Unless he wants to go on Oprah and confess something, which if he does, I don't want to know about it.
Remember how this idea got started? Let us reminisce.
I couldn't believe I was still using a nasty, crusty, ugly old mug that I had practiced painting on for my morning coffee. And because I have a disease which causes me to expose every vulnerable fiber of my insecure being on the Internet in the hopes of purging myself by humiliation, I posted this pic:
Ooh, doggies. That's bad. So then I thought, "Hey. Don't be so hard on yourself. If you've been using this ugly thing, I'm sure a million other people have been doing the same thing, hanging onto old mugs because they just forget to get rid of them or are too lazy to walk to the trash can, like you are. So just have a contest, calling all ugly mug owners to expose their under bellies, too. Do it! It'll be great fun! People will love this!"
Uh, not so much.
But here we are. I promised a prize. I promised to provide fun. I promised not to raise taxes. So here we are.
You got any ugly mugs? I hope?
If so, link up below, and let us come judge you, because being judged for ugliness is FUN!
Come on back tomorrow to see Mug Royalty. Until then, happy repulsed voting!!
