A Nose by Any Other Name…

Which is loveliest in a nose? Its coy beauty when it’s budding, or its splendour when it blows?
George Barlow

Or maybe it didn’t quite go that way…..

I’m having issues this morning.  Not only am I posting on  Sunday, which I never do, but this blogroll contest has completely taken over.  I think I’m in the early stages of delirium and like West Nile….there is no cure.  With every glance and every look I saw clown noses….this were starting to creep me out when I looked around the house and saw this:

And this:

Then I turned on the TV:

Even the NJ girls have it

Is that a clown nose their kicking around?

Oh no, not you too Paula!

Then I thought “I’ll settle this…once and for all…” and went to google.  I typed in “He who must not be….”

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need to be de-clowned!!

Today’s challenge conjured up by Saradraws was to post a truth or dare for Le Clown to partake in.  This was most difficult.  It is the final challenge.  Yes, I said FINAL.  Meaning tomorrow all the fun will be over and I will learn my worth in this world by measure of whether or not I was granted a spot on the blogroll.  Ok, maybe I’m not quite that obsessed but it sure would feel good!  If you have a great dare you can think of, read the rules first, then post away under the comments!

Thank you for supporting me this week and watching me go slowly “clowny”.  I have a strange urge to put on face paint and big shoes….but…oh well, there’s nothing wrong with that right?

Wanna Play?

Happy Friday everyone — are you as excited as I am about the fact that we have a THREE day weekend?  Anyone got any big plans?

I’m having a ton of fun with Le Clown’s blogroll contest and thanks to Madam Weeble’s Mad Libs challenge yesterday, I’m moving up in the ranks.  However, I’m still getting beaten by a long shot.  It’s ok tho because I’ve met so many interesting bloggers and this experience is helping me open my mind and find my creative voice that has been in hiding somewhere since high school English class!  (which was ages ago).

That doesn’t mean that I’m not still fighting….and if you like, you can help me!  Today’s challenge is posted HERE.  Brought to us by Rollergiraffe, it is a very flattering picture of Mr. Le Clown himself enjoying what seems to be some sort of Panini sandwich.  He is deep in thought.  Can you tell us what he’s thinking??

If you decide to play along, leave a comment on the challenge thread and the “noses” you earn will be credited to me.  It’s all in good fun and it’s really interesting to see what everyone comes up with.  There are so many talented minds out there!  I even vote for my competitors.  It’s so hard not to!

So, put your thinking caps on and join the fun.  Have a great weekend!

“Like” Me or “Like” Me Not..Will You Support My Blog?

Hello blog friends!  Thankfully the office is a bit quieter today so I am able to write today.  Yesterday was a cluster “F” and I think one of the first weekdays I haven’t been able to post in a long time.  I’m breathin easier today and it’s Wednesday so all is good.

Today I want to bring your attention to this clever little “contest” I was entered into so that I can get a spot on the coveted blogroll of the infamous Mr. Le Clown.  If you have been around WP blogland very long, you will surely recognize him:

Oops…no wait….here he is:

that’s better

I found Mr. L’s blog through another blogger’s page and was instantly drawn to it.  He had me at “Dick In A Box”.  The author of “A Clown on Fire” Eric, isn’t so bad either…creepy how much they look like each other isn’t it??

Weird.

Anyhoo– Now, I’m what you call a blogging virgin.  My blog hasn’t been around very long but I’m convinced the Clown is stalking me because yesterday I was invited to participate in his blogroll contest.  Please see the details HERE.

I gratefully thanked its creator for the invitation but graciously bowed out….I am not blog-worthy enough to participate in such a widely recognized battle of the minds!  I tried to get out….but he pulled me back in (yes, that was a Godfather reference).

So this is where you come in.  I would absolutely be forever in your debt if each one of my 100+ followers visited my friend Le Clown’s blog to support me.  Go to: http://clownonfire.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/blogroll-contest/ then look for my entry comment on there…about halfway down.  I’m contestant #12.  Look for this pic:

Just reply to my comment with another comment and write “LIKE”. That will get it counted.  The more LIKES I get, the better chance I will siege one of the coveted blogroll spots.

While you are there, take a tour around “A Clown on Fire”.  Chances are, you will leave with your eyes and brain on fire too but you will have enjoyed your time there, I guarantee that.  Eric certainly is a poetic genius!  (And Le Clown, if you are reading this…no, that wasn’t sucking up…I’m stating fact.)

Thank you in advance, loyal blog followers…this is a race to the finish line and I appreciate all the help I can get!

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
