And the winner is...

...not me.  I am not the winner since I'm the fool who had a few drinks and committed myself to showing my face.  *sighs and laughs*  It's worth it, though, because y'all are darn funny!  I'm still a little stunned at Bella's guess of "You are a Florida Lady, which means you are LJ, or Lady Jerky. Tanned, with a brown, spikey mullet."  A mullet, Bella? Really?  That just pained me...lol...it was funny as hell but good God, I must give off some scary impression.

Let's get to the good stuff, though, shall we?  In the end, I had a tie between Gayle and Belladonna1125!  Both were at least in the right ballpark.  See?  *waves hi to everyone*


That's me, poking fun of The Houseguest behind her back.  Never let me stand behind you in pictures...trust me.

Look!  I have a big mouth in more ways than one.  So, these were the only pictures of me that I'd dare share and since I stopped coloring my hair, I do have more gray showing now but it is still very dark, just a "salt and pepper" dark.  It is naturally nearly black, as are my eyes.  I'm 5'9" and and heavy enough I wind up in the plus sizes more often than not, which kills me.  It just doesn't kill me enough to actually, you know, *do anything about it.  Oh, and anyone who labeled my bosom as formidable and pillowy or some version thereof would be correct.  I am built like a big, strong farm woman.  I don't want to talk about that anymore, thankyouverymuch.  I do wear glasses at home and contacts when I go out.  My fingernails and toenails are always painted and I never, ever wear shorts in public.  Also, contrary to what a lot of you seemed to think and were afraid to say, I'm actually very feminine.  :-D  So, who won the contest?  I know that's what everyone is really waiting for, isn't it?  Wellllp, I wadded both names up and tossed them on the floor.  3 out of 4 cats ran, smelled the marker and backed waaaaay off.  So much for that idea.  With much encouraging and about 15 minutes of dry-time, one of my old lady cats, Ginger, finally came and sniffed very curiously at the bottom one and then pounced on and batted the top one which, of course, I didn't manage to get a picture of since I was convinced that bottom one was her choice.


Whose name was it?  It was...


Congratulations, Gayle! If you'll email me at anemonepie@yahoo.com with your name and the address you'd like your prize sent to, I'll do my damnedest to get it out this week! 

Now, I do have one last order of business.  I have a second little prize I was keeping secret...a prize for the answer that made me really laugh and I didn't mention it so that everyone gave a natural response.  I think we all know who won this prize, don't we?   No one topped Trudy's dwarf in a walker answer, which took me a minute to catch onto and then I literally cackled out loud.  That was beautiful!  Trudy,  I'll be sending you a 1 ounce bottle of Geoffrey Beene For Women.

It, too, is suitable for regifting in case you aren't into smell-good things.  I still have your address from something else so I'll send it to you there, if that's okay? 

Thanks so much for playing along with me, y'all...this was a lot of fun!

Mullet, my ass.  Damn, Bella...I still can't get over that.

Yay for Gayle, boo for me losing. Though I'm not surprised, as I never win anything. :)

And I'm not quite sure where you get off calling yourself "fat."

Anemone Pie said...

BD1125, you'll note none of those pictures showed anything from the collarbone down. There's a reason for that. :-P And shoot, you came darn close to winning! Blame it on Ginger.

I can't believe I missed this contest somehow!
I is nice to finally "meet" you though!

Jill said...

People are always more tough on themselves than they should be. You are attractive and I'm still trying to find this fat you speak of.

It's always fun to see if your mental image of a person matches them in real life. I had fun reading the answers!

Crazee Juls said...

Jae said...

Well shit! At least I got the tall part right, and the pretty lips! Way off on the hair though. You're a gorgeous woman, Ms. AP! I got that right too but in a different way!

Congrats to Gayle and Trudy!

Bella said...

AP, you're smokin' hot. I mean that. You look a lot like my aunt, who is a hottie as well.

I retract the mullet comment.

You are not fat.

Sue said...

OMG. You are NOTHING like I expected. NOTHING!!! Not that I didn't think so before but you are beautiful! OK I'll stop hitting on you and blowing sunshine up your ass.

FalkFamily said...

You are a cutie, that's for sure! I am now going to have to go back and read all the guesses! Merry Christmas!!!!

FalkFamily said...

OMG - I just read the guesses and was cracking up. Trudy - you totally deserved that win :)

collinskid said...

Boy! Was I ever wrong! You are prettier than I ever could have guessed. Congrats to the winners, but I really wish it could have been me.(lol)

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, too.
