I have to give super kudos to Trooper Thorn for the best question comment of the day:
Congrats on the featured posting. But why did you bury the tidbit about you shaving your arms in the list of other characteristics. That is something that should be featured. Are you really that hairy? Or is it some weird fetish?
So, I'm not really that hairy. (Although, what qualifies as "that hairy"?) I don't have ape-arms, and my hair is light enough in color for it to not actually be a problem. And though I have several fetishes, shaving arm hair isn't one of them. It started one day with my looking down at these arms of mine (which were of course, thinner at the time...) and thinking "do girls even HAVE hair on their arms? Eww! I don't like having hair on my arms." Of course I had the images of models, actresses and so on in my mind, and I couldn't think of one single sexy lady who had hair on her arms. So I was in the shower and decided to shave 'em. I was probably around 17 at the time, and it's been going on ever since. So sometimes I have wicked smooth arms, and sometimes they're stubbly. That's just the way it goes. I guess it's just one more reason I'm like my gay friends.
And now it's time for some link love. I've simply got to share some kick-ass blogs that I love with you guys because you've all shared your blogs with me!
If you're a gay guy, gay girl, or like things gay, or like photos of hot guys, check out my friend Wes at Swish Embassy.
If you dig good writing, good humor, and general quirkiness, you should visit my new pal Sandra over at Right Out Loud Writing. She sorta reminds me of me, which means you might like her too.
My friend Rob has a great blog called Rob in Gallup, sharing his experiences in the small town of Gallup, NM. His writing is fantastic, and though his entries are not daily, the content is always thought provoking and high quality.
I'm not a Fat Rights Activist, but this chick is a brilliant writer.
I've noticed lots of new friends in the chubbosphere (I mean people with weighty issues who relate to the battle of the bulge,) so you need to check out all the links I have on the right hand side of my blog, over there in the column on the right. Go to the right. Do it. There are way too many awesome bloggers to mention all of them individually, so you just need to go through 'em. But, I'll have to give a spotlight to a few of my favorites:
The ever popular Jack Sh*t, Gettin' Fit for a regular dose of humor infused weight loss encouragement.
Fat Bridesmaid for her honesty and The Biggest Loser Liveblog, which is the best thing, ever. Well, next to Diet Coke, John Mayer and Orgasms. It's pretty close though.
My friend Monica over at Confessions of a + Sized Girl for her continuous and relentless support, and a fabulous super smily face every time you open up her blog.
The badass Bitch Cakes. Do I even need to explain why you need to go there, NOW?
Okay, seriously I could go on for awhile, so I'll stop now. And now for a big drumroll! Or... a Cinnamon Roll! (Oooh, cinnamon rolls...) I'm doing a little book giveaway! :)
The Ultimate Metabolism Diet
I did a review of this book HERE, so check that out if you're interested in finding out more about the book, what it is, etc. :)
You HAVE to fill out this little box thing to be entered!
*Sorry, US and Canada residents only!
Entering a comment on the blog does NOT enter you for the drawing. See, this nifty box thing keeps it completely random and chooses the winner in a computerized sort of way, instead of me choosing one personally. It keeps it nice and fair and happy. :)
The contest ends on 10/2/09 at 5pm.
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope to see you again real soon-like. :)
