Contest Finalists

When I first started this contest I urged my friend Lorie to enter this picture:





She didn't and so I'm not going to make her eligible for the prize, but that's okay because the important thing is for all of you to see it and it just so happens that I have a copy.  In her defense, those are not her teeth, that is not her hair, and Wal Mart provided the parasol and the background.  Also, it wouldn't do her much good to win because she lives in the middle of nowhere and wouldn't be able to use a gift certificate at any of the places I offered unless she was willing to drive for a few hours.  However, she IS the cheapest person on the planet so I wouldn't put it past her to cross state lines for a Chili's taco. 

With that said, here are our finalists (read: the only people who actually submitted a picture):

First up, LYNN.  Lynn just so happens to be the woman who brought me into this world and has only once threatened to be the one to take me out of it.  She is one fantastic lady and contrary to the looks of this picture, she (as well as Bill Clinton) does not inhale.


Contestant #2:  KATIE - Katie's brother used to drive me to school in the morning.  He taught me about "burm shots" (driving the car up along the side of the dirt bank) and "E-slides" (using the emergency brake to accentuate the burm shot).  Can you imagine what Oprah would have done with that if it had caught on?  I'm thankful to be alive. 


#3:  ELISA - Elisa delurked specifically to enter this contest and I feel like that should be rewarded.  She's hoping you'll look past the mullet to see the eight cows within.


#4:  GANELLE - Ganelle gets mentioned a lot here on this blog and so perhaps you feel like you know her a little already.  You know how you listen to people on the radio and you imagine what they look like, and then you see a picture of them and they're not at all what you expected?  Well, is this what you expected?


Finally, contestant #5:  GINGER - This is what happens when you tell Ginger, "Sorry dude, but we're all out of chocolate chips."


There you have it!  Voting will take place on the sidebar - you have until midnight on Thursday!

It's not even close!!!

I couldn't get the poll to work, but I am voting for myself!

I TOTALLY should have entered. Will you do another one, some day, when you are on vacation? Please? I want a taco.

Gannelle hasn't changed too much.

Love her pic.

Heather said...

Darn! Maybe I'll submit on round two.

Marianne & Clayton said...

Um nice try Katie. As if. Except for the over-sized glasses, she was basically one of the prettiest little girls I've ever seen.

I would vote for Ganelle. She's got it going on in all the wrong ways in this picture.

I've been wanting to ask you: How do you pronounce Ganelle's name?
"g" or "j"?

Vern said...

Venessa: It's a "j". One of those things where the whole family had "G" names so they had to make it work. :)

Martha said...

had to go with Ganelle. I'd be afraid not to vote for her. I hear she's pretty competitive and is a master of pranks.

Lorie said...

THANKS, Vern! I can't believe you have a copy of this and I don't. You are so dead.

Lorie said...

Me again.... back from pouting! (What's your password, anyway?) My vote has to go to Ginger without a doubt.

Thanks Marianne:) I may not get any votes, but you better believe I get made fun of A LOT for the glasses and the outfit. Those glasses gave me a complex;)

Crap. I apparently missed my chance to enter this amazing contest.
