Survey Results!

The end of the year is approaching, which means the beginning of the new year is approaching, which means I only have about 2 weeks to start planning my January photo shoot! I know the suspense has been killing you. 17 votes have come in, which surprises me, because I only know about 5 of you who read this blog.

The first two votes that came in were both for "famous movie scenes", so I thought that might indicate a landslide victory, and I thought that I'd end up having to pose for a photo wearing this, and only this.

But then luckily the balance shifted and people started writing in their own votes including:
1. Famous movie kisses with you photoshopped in This would be an excellent idea if I had photoshop or knew how to use it.
2. Showcase the moments when you thought what the hell did I do to bring myself to this very moment-your upbeat friend Another good idea, but I don't think I have the creativity to capture these such moments. What would that even look like? Me leaving a half-eaten burrito on my plate while I run to the bathroom?
3. I love all of these I would like to see a calendar of you in all these themes! Thankyou Now this one I like. Partly because it reads like I have a dedicated, admiring fan, and partly because this is also the result of the survey. Plus, I can't even think of 12 yuppie sports, and I don't own any childhood toys. So thanks to all of you logical voters for making this easy on me!

Straight Girl Slumming It - 2009 Calendar

'Tis the season for gift-giving, and what better time of year to reflect on all of our favorite toys from years past. Today my co-worker Carley called me in a huff because our other co-worker Katie was reminiscing about the Snoopy Sno-Cone machine she used to have.

Carley: "Yo! Quick question. Did you ever have a Snoopy Sno-cone machine?"
Me: "Yes!"
Carley: "That's not fair! You and Katie both had one and I never did! I'm trying to find someone to commiserate with, but so far everyone I talk to has had one."
Me: "I don't think I ever used it though, I just remember drinking the syrup."
Carley: "Like, straight syrup? Not in the sno-cone?"
Me: "Nope, just straight. I guess that was just the beginning..."
Carley: "Well, did you ever have the Doritos sleeping bag?"
Me: "A Doritos sleeping bag?! Like the snack chip?"
Carley: "Yep! It was the softest sleeping bag ever!"
Me: "No! Now I'm jealous!"

Then she sent me this.

To which I replied:

That is the most awesome variety of sleeping bags ever. It's not even like a Frito-lay variety, or a Marvel comic book variety. Nope, it's the best-of collection. What's with the hound dog? I can't see clearly, but it looks like he's in a collage of yuppie sports. I should do a 2009 calendar of myself like that... playing golf in January, tennis in February, polo in March. It could be a best seller.

To which Carley replied:

I know! the Doritos sleeping bag was so f'n awesome. So soft. I never knew anyone that had one until I met Katie...i think we part of an exclusive club. I know she had connections with the Frito-lay company..i don't know how I got mine...i just wish I still had it. They are no where to be found. You can't even buy it on the internet.

I know the hound dog is pretty funny. You should totally do a calendar. you could even do like an August pic with the snoopy snowcone machine you can be like pouring the syrup into your mouth all sassy while snoopy sits on the table with a big colorless ball of snow.

So now I'm all gung-ho about a 2009 Calendar. Or perhaps to save the environment (read: money), maybe at the beginning of every month in 2009, I'll post a photo on my blog. So now I need your help. What should the theme be? Click Here to take survey.
