The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown

Brought to you exclusively by Dual Mom on
Seventeen comments, the most on any post to dates (go away you ho's and male equivalents to ho's that get like 458 comments on EVERYTHING you write and leave me to my small piece of satisfaction). You guys are just fanfuckintastic and have picked up the gauntlet in fine style. I am so hugging all of you right now (and I am NOT a hugger).

I don't normally check my blog or my blog email during the day. Not because I have some sense  of responsibilty to my employer (that would just be vomit inducing goody two shoes), More because I'm usually so busy I don't know if I'm coming or going half the time. Around 4:00 today I had 5 minutes down time so I checked my g. mail. There was an email from Brandee that said this:

Yo woman!

I gave you some lovin' bloggy style at the Think Tank today. I kinda sorta threw down about your challenge! Hope you don't mind! :D

Because I'm retarded and can jump to conclusions like nobody's business, I initially thought she was giving me my VERY FIRST blog award. The thought had me shitting my pants. The truth of what she had done was so very much better. I clicked on her blog and this is what I found. It's on like Donkey does she think of this shit? I fully realize alot of the people that read my crap wonderful insights on the world also read Brandee and I'm totally wasting your time by linking to that but whateva'. In posting about my off-handed challenge (and it was totally off the cuff) she has started something which I think is going to change alot of us.
When I get excited about really really excited...I spin like an ADHD tasmanian devil. That's it, I just spin the fuck out. I am so excited that so many of you have picked up this challenge. I cannot convey to you how excited I am. I am spinning gals. We are so going to rock the fuck out of the blog world with our fanfuckintasticness. I have so many ideas running through my head I'm pretty sure I can't put them on "screen" yet.
We are going to do battle of the bulge Dual Mom style. You just know there's going to be alot of self-effacing, swearing, laughing and all around inappropiate shit involved. We're going to call each other bitches, we're going to curse at our own weaknesses, we're going to encourage each other, we're going to laugh, cry and occassionally shit ourselves. Can you contain you're excitement? I know, me neither. I know you've always wanted to shit yourselves and tell complete strangers about it.
You'll be glad to know I'm an organizer. I am going to organize the shit out of this challenge and come January 2nd (you know damn well I'm not gonna make you give up chocolate while your hungover on New Year's Day) on January 2nd the red flag will be waved by yours truly and we're going to make some changes bitches!!
We're going to have an "official sign up". We're going to have official weigh ins. We're going to share what works and what doesn't. We're going to have prizes. Battle of the bulge (we need a new name and Brandee is working on a button...eeeehhh we're going to have a button) 2010 is going to be the THE thing to do. We're going to shed the shame of being overweight and we're going to post about our fat, how it affects us, how it makes us feel ashamed and how we are doing something about it because we are fanfuckintastic. Yes we are. I am posting a pic of my sexy legs when I get them back, I know y'all can't WAIT for that. We are going to celebrate bloggy style when each and everyone of us reaches a goal.
I'm so buying pom poms. You'll lose weight just to make me shut the fuck up. Just remember, I'm so going to kick your ass in this challenge. I'll feel a tiny bit bad about that, but I'll get over it.
This will not become a weight lost blog - I enjoy bitching writing about other stuff way too much to stick to just one topic.
So it's on like Donkey Kong indeed!

All that excitement of yours makes me want to gain some pounds just so I can try to beat you! I'm a competitive bitch, after all.
