Of Clowns, Contests, and Sinus Infections

I thought I would write a post on my reflections of Le Clown’s contest because 1) I want to get more mileage out of this crap and 2) I have a sinus infection and I forget.  If you’ve never had a sinus infection, I will describe it for you.  This one feels like I’ve got a vice strapped around my head, cotton jammed up in my ears, and what remaining brain cells I have (after this contest and reading the Book That Shall Not Be Named) have started spinning around like a drunken firefly ballet, bashing into the sides of my skull with the greatest of ease.  Because of the disturbances in my equilibrium, I find myself both walking and typing like a drunken sailor. Slk jnnke;o inl;da;s kj.

I’m so sick and yet look at my fabulous hair!

 Drunken Firefly Ballet would make a good band name.  They could open for Clown Mafia.

You don’t want to wake up with one of these on your pillow. Just sayin’.

Which reminds me of that other thought I had, which was to thank everyone who gave clown nose points to me because I’m not sure how I got ahead in the nose polls.  Maybe it was leaving those horse head gifs in the inboxes of my competitors.  Or possibly it was the spirit I projected of love and friendship and rainbow ponies.  I’m thinking it was the gifs.  Anyhoo, the most important thing to remember is that

Subtle, right?

 

I WON I WON I WON I WON!          

 

 

That’s right, I came in fourth place and got a spot on the blogroll.  Yay!  There were other winners too, and really, all contestants were winners, but you should really remember that

Just in case you forgot . . .

 

I WON I WON I WON!

 

 

Oh, and the contest was also great because I met new bloggy friends and got followers, and found other blogs to follow, and wasted tons of time making snarky comments and posts, and now have some scary clown pics that are giving me nightmares.  I had hoped to write a truly moving post about the meaningfulness of this – I’m not sure meaningfulness is a word, but Computer Grammar God didn’t put a scribble line under it while it did put a scribble line under bloggy, which everyone should know is a real word.  But this sinus infection makes my thoughts fly around like my brain cells and it’s really hard to catch them and when you do you forget why you wanted to catch them anyway.

 

Okay now I’m just being a jerk.

Where was I?  Oh, right.

 

I WON I WON I WON.

 

 

If you would like better and probably saner reflections on this contest, you should go to Le Clown’s site and get the links yourself, because at this rate, I might link you to almost anything.  But I just wanted to say thanks for everything, and I love you all, and people better click on my link on the blogroll now because I still have some of those horse head gifs left, and even worse, pics of evil clowns.  So. Many. Clowns.

Keep runnin’ clown!

Okay, guys, it is now day 276 of Le Clown’s blogroll challenge.  I will not give up, though, because I am a SURVIVOR.  Also slightly deranged.  For bonus points we are to take a picture having to do with the contest.  I can’t find a camera or a cord to upload the picture because I am sadfaced.  So I am drawing a picture instead which should show off my fabulous artistic skills (I do have them, but not on Paint so much.  It might be the insanity showing too, I dunno). 

Happy Nightmares, Le Clown!

To recap for those of you who haven’t followed my journey on Le Clown’s site, here is what we eager contestants have done with ourselves so far. 

1. In the comments, we gave a reason for needing to be on the blog roll.  Others had to offer likes for our comment which were counted up as points.  Some people offered to cure Cancer and build huts in Africa.  I offered the services of myself and both the voices in my head.  I got like 5 likes for that one.  Or we did.

2. We made a post on our blogs linking people to the contest.  I’m sure this was not just an attempt to drive more traffic to the clown’s site because he 1) already has tons of viewers and 2) most of my small viewership are either competing in this contest with me or have slowly backed away.

3. He employed others in his nefarious scheme.  Madame Weebles had a contest with Mad Libs.  We got to enter ten mad libs having to do with The Clown (I’m speaking English here cause I’m a real American, ‘kay?)  So we did.  One of mine was one of the winning mad libs.  This was the height of awesome, because I mostly just win that lame participation ribbon that only goes to lame people (no offense Lame Adventures).  I can’t remember which one won.  Some were not repeatable, and others somewhat psychopathic.  We got to fill in the blanks but didn’t have to use real parts of speech or even confine the blanks to one word at a time.  It was like if E.L. James decided to write mad libs.  Oh, the possibilities.

4. Rollergiraffe posted a pic of Le Clown eating a sandwich while having some sort of convulsion.  We posted captions.  Again, we got to do this ten times each.  I don’t know how many entries they’ve had by now, but their work on this contest may explain their questionable mental states.  I also don’t remember my entries.  I think one had to do with narcoleptics eating.  Because I am always P.C.

5. Today Lame Adventures had us make ten captions for each of four pictures.  These pics were from the zoo and were supposed to be Le Clown if he became an animal.  Well more of one than he currently is.  Again, ten entries allowed per picture.  Did I mention we were awarded clown noses for this?  I was proud of myself because I managed to work in the “Big Butts” song and a reference to Survivor. 

And finally, up above was the bonus points entry.  I can never resist extra credit, even when I already have an A.  Which I don’t in this case because there are others still ahead of me.  Will I make it when the roll is called up yonder on that site?  Who knows.  Fortunately, we have not been provided with ways to actively sabotage one another.  It’s a good thing, because I already willingly threw Le Clown under a bus for a spot on Love and Lunchmeat’s Zombie Apocalypse Task Force.  Maybe I should have waited to mention that one.

He says this is the end of the contest, so it’s down to the wire.  Tomorrow I have to post another creeped out picture to qualify for BONUS POINTS.  And then we will be done.  He says so.  We will be done right?  Who will win?  Who will lose?  Who will cry until the clown is so guilty we all get on anyway? 

Stay tuned.
