Vote for The Lawsons do Dallas!
November 3, 2007


If you read my blog yesterday, then you probably saw my sister's courtesy post about the 2007 Weblog Awards. It's true, I'm one of the top ten finalists for the funniest blog of the year.

I would be really excited, except I'm in second-to-last place, and that's not a happy place to be. I hate to break it to all of you non-voters out there, but ninth place is not the new first place.

If you read this blog regularly, you really should click this link, select 'funniest blog' and cast your vote. It would be even better if you voted once every twenty-four hours until the competition ends on November 8th, and beg your friends to do it, too.

In case you're not convinced just yet, I've compiled a brief list of reasons you should take a second to vote for me.

10. I supply you with your daily laugh
9. My child has a kickin' afro
8. My dog's farts smell like turnips and garbage
7. I dressed James up as Richard Simmons for Halloween
6. I outweigh my husband by thirteen pounds today
5. I made a FAQ page and a Grillz Gallery
4. My husband puts deodorant in his bum crack
3. I use custom, Mormon-friendly curse words like schnit, dingle-shiz, and vajango
2. You were lucky enough to be in the middle of some recent blogger dramatics
1. If I win this honor, I will wear a sweatsuit to the award ceremony in Vegas

Please, please, PLEASE take a second to vote each day. I'm a trophy ho, and I'm lookin' for some action.

Oh, and while you're there, vote for Hollywood Flakes for the best parenting blog, because seriously, it's the best parenting blog.

I planned to vote even before you posted this hilarious list of reasons, but now I'm going to get everyone else I know to vote too!

I've created 3 different logins so I can stuff the ballot box. Okay, not really stuff it, 'cause there are 3 people in our house and I'm just deciding their vote for them.

OK -I voted yesterday AND today, but sadly you are still in 2nd to last place.

CollegeGirl said...

I voted for ya!

Brandon Harshe said...

January got me into your blog. I subscribed to it on my RSS feed. Pretty funny stuff. We voted for you.

I still can't believe Jared puts deodorant in his crack.

Hope the chicken nuggets were good.

Greetings from your fellow Humor Blog Finalist. Bossy is the breathless one with frizzy hair running in lane five who didn't even know she was nominated until yesterday let alone a finalist and forgot to promote the Awards on her blog.

Anyway - nice to meet you, you rock. Bossy supposes these Finalist lists are good for something.

Marc and Megan said...

I voted! I'll keep on voting.

pssst, did you know that if you have more than one computer, you can vote on each computer every day? Yeah, we'll put in 3 votes a day until the voting is closed. :)

Jason and Sarah said...

I haven't read in like a week. I'm so out of the loop! I voted, and will vote every 24 hours!

Melinda said...

I am a convert to this blog. I heard about you from Hollywood Flakes (how nice of her to tell us to vote for you) and I have voted for you far. And yes, your kid's Halloween costume was the turning point in my conversion to your blog.

You are doing pretty well in the voting by my standards, Amy! I know some of the more famous blog have more votes, but it's hard to beat sheer readership. Anways, you've got votes from both of my computers for the past two days - I'd vote faster if I could!

Your hubby seriously puts deod on his bum? How thrilled is he that you are sharing that!

Liligurl said...

I voted and have friends voting for you too, good luck...

Rob & Katy said...

yay! you're in 8th place now! let's get you into 7th!
