'Tis the Season...For Some Competition

It is time. My turn. I'm up. Shit. This here blog is now in battle at The Blog Thunderdome. Feel free to mozy on over there and put in a good word for me. Or not. You're free to vote for whomever you like. Fucker. And, if you're so inclined, wish my competition, Life. My Take, good luck 'cause I'm a sucker for good sportsmanship.

If I lose, I am banned from blogging for two months. If I win, um, well, I win. The stakes are high but please keep in mind, I SUBMITTED my blog to this. I wasn't randomly chosen by mean Blogtanics to be sacrificed on the Sucky Blog altar or anything. I entered of my own volition, ergo, I will not be throwing any sort of temper tantrum should I lose. I'd appreciate the same from you. In the words of Dave, the great Thunderdome organizer, "...two lady types are battling so we don't have to worry about lame-ass, whining men for a change." Amen to that. It pains me to see boys piss and moan. Truly. And it's been going on in some of the battles. It's one of those situations that's kind of embarrassing to watch. You know? Anyway, I won't do it.

Besides, a two month break might be nice. Um, not that I'm saying I WANT to lose or anything, but just that I'd be okay with it because I'm annoyingly optimistic that way. Just the other day I was thinking about the fact that I've been blogging for ten months, which is longer than any of my relationships prior to Zube Boy lasted. And, might I add, he enjoys reminding me of this when we argue. Generally, he says, "No WONDER no one could stand to be with you for more than seven months." Heh. He's been saying that shit for five years though, so I'm none too concerned. I prefer to think that those relationships didn't last long NOT because I'm a bitch, but because I got tired of being the target board for hoagies and television sets. But, whatever. Splitting hairs. Wait. What the hell am I talking about? This has nothing to do with anything. Moving right along...

I stand here now, trembling on the brink of banishment. Knowing that I suck, but hoping that I don't suck all hell and that the judges might find some redeeming qualities in my writing. Let the battle begin.

Edited to Add: By all means no one HAS to vote. I hope this post didn't seem to imply such. It's all in good fun. Also, if ya do vote, leave a reason perty please. 'Cause it'll make things more interesting and otherwise just filling out the poll will make this seem like a popularity contest. Which it isn't. Doesn't matter one iota who gets more poll votes, as the judges have gone against popular opinion time and again.

I have faith.

Nyte said...

Good Luck Zube, but honestly I dont think you have a thing to worry about. You are a better blogger than myself!

wallofdenial said...

lots-o-luk from me

Gary said...

I'm going to go vote for you, Zube. You're an asset to bloggerdom.

Ginamonster said...

Read her's, prefer yours, but I'm not registering to vote because I don't feel like it and I'll likely forget my password anyway.

Phil said...

"...two lady types are battling so we don't have to worry about lame-ass, whining men for a change."

Bull ass fucking ass shit (gotta add that "ass" for emphasis, like you said, right?). If I end up having to go 2 months without Zube posts, you damn well bet I'll be a lame-ass whining man. I will be here every damn day whining about the lack of Zube. Well, maybe not every day. Okay, definitely not every day. I'm too fucking lazy to do that. But you can bet I'll be sitting here whining about it.

Zube Girl said...

Storm, Wall of Denial, Gary, and Ginamonster- Thank you guys.

Nyte- Thank you for the compliment, but you never know until it's over.

Phil- Ha! If I'm banned, I'll have plenty of time to send you e-mails poking fun at your whiney ass!

justdawn said...

Much luck to you...I hope your blog wins because I would be sad not to read you for two whole months:)

Crazy Lady said...

You'll win, hands down!

Ginamonster said...

Wow! I turned into a guy and went plural all at the same time. On that note, I think we are ready to go home.

Nicky said...

I am not going miss reading your blog for 2 months! No fuckin way. I registered and cast my vote!

Zube Girl said...

JustDawn and CrazyLady- I hope so.

Ginamonster- 'Guys' to me means 'guys and girls'.

Nicky- Thanks!

Amy said...

I did my part! I wouldn't be able to make it two months without a Zube fix!

Psychobabble said...

Question(if you lose): Are you banned from blogging on *this* blog for two months? Or banned from blogging, period, for two months?
Somehow, "We Two Bitches" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Chickie said...

I'm gonna vote. I could not bear to be without the Adventures of Zube Girl for two months. For my sanity's sake, surely you will win!

Barbara said...

I'm heading on over Zube Girl - I don't want you banished.

Samantha said...

I added my vote and comment! It would be horrible to go without a Zube fix for two months! I just found you, you can't dissapear on me! (Plus, that other girl isn't impressing me very much.)

You've got some balls to enter this contest. No way would I do it!

Rich | Championable said...

Dude. I don't know *what* you were thinking. But then again, I'm a whining, lame-ass guy.

Piss.

Moan.

I say if you lose (which you won't... you're competition seems nice, but...), fuck 'em, and keep blogging.

Zube Girl said...

Amy- Thank you.

Jennie- I'll only be banned from blogging here. We Three Bitches will remain intact.

Chickie- I hope! Thanks.

Barbara- Thank you!

Samantha- I'd say it has less to do with balls and more to do with a husband who said, "Seriously, honey, you have a good blog. You should enter."

Rich- Heh. We'll see what happens!

Barbara said...

Looks like you're in the lead. Hope I didn't hurt your chances with the poem I wrote. I should leave being funny to you.

malfouka said...

>>>>Looks like you're in the lead.

Silly Barbara, the "poll" matters not!

Zube Girl said...

Barbara- Meh. I thought though poem was funny, in a cheesy, over-the-top sort of way!

But, Malfouka is right. The judges have actually gone AGAINST the poll more often than not (I think). So, yeah. I'm nervous.

Malfouka- Good point. I never have any idea what way you judges are going to go.
