Thanks to all of you who voted today! It was neck and neck all day long, and at 8:00 p.m. EST when I checked the poll (pretty much on the dot)……IT WAS TIED! Which is pretty doggone funny, because it still leaves me with a CHOICE and isn’t that what we were trying to avoid in the first place???
The blogging gods are laughing right now…I imagine a few of you are, too.
Anyhoo, since I’m hosting it falls on me to break the tie. The choices were between "What was your favorite childhood book or story? Do you still own it?" and "Post pictures of your favorite shoes…and if you’re brave enough, your FEET!". Obviously, I really liked all the poll categories or I wouldn’t have had a difficult time choosing just one.
But guess what? It’s easy to break the tie after all! After reading THIS POST of Jenny’s, I was pulling for "feet"–if I could have voted again, I would’ve probably thrown in an extra vote (I did vote earlier, and it was NOT for this one…).
So…here are your "official" marching orders for next week’s Fun Monday:
Shoes tell a lot about a person and we wanna delve deeply into your
soulsole. Photograph your favorite pair–or pairs–of shoes and tell us a little about why they’re near and dear to your toesheart (I can’t wait to see how Swampy ties this in to Breast Cancer Awareness!). Follow in Jenny’s footsteps and make a foot-family portrait…show us your baby bronzed booties…let us see the shoes YOU HAD TO HAVE (but have never worn)…or all those grotesquely dyed-to-match formerly white satin bridemaid’s shoes that were worn ONCE…the reinforced steel-toe boots that saved your big toe from being hacked off in that industrial "accident"…or, just take pictures of your nekkid feet–gnarly bunions, twin toes, or perfectly OPI-pedicured tootsies.
Let me know in comments or via email if you’d like to participate….and newbies? What better time than the present to step onto the Fun Monday bandwagon?
Fun Monday ~ History & details for joining:
The Origin: In January 2007, Vicki was just being nosy–she wanted to see the view from everyone’s front door; Willowtree suggested everyone post on the same day. From there, Erik
wanted to see childhood photographs, and voila! Fun Monday was born.
It’s been going strong ever since, with just a few breaks for holidays.
Who can participate? ALL bloggers who want
to! This is a loosely-held meme, with the host or hostess volunteering
each week, simply by alerting the current host of their interest. It’s
never too late to join in, hosts are always generous to add you as soon
as they can. Fun Monday has an international following and it’s…well…FUN to meet bluddies (blog + buddies) in "far away places" :).
What do I need to do to participate? Simply
comment to or email the host for the current week. To find out who is
hosting, the burden is on you…you simply follow the previous host’s
posts that will lead you to the current host. On the given Fun Monday,
be sure to identify your post with "Fun Monday" somewhere in the title and invite others to join.
Etiquette: Please be sure and link back to the host/hostess, and when you comment, be sure to include an e-mail address. Some bloggers reply with an email rather than a comment back.
