You like me...you really, really like me!
I was a little too preoccupied with other things last month to even do any campaigning, but it appears tampatantrum.com has won the "nudist with a cause" category of the Nude Weblog Awards. I'd like to thank all the lovely ladies (and gents) that made it possible, as well as all of you who voted for this site! We'll be making the charity event an annual thing, so stay tuned and check back this October!

Behold the power of cheese!
We all noticed over the weekend that ATPTB is now the #1 (non-sponsored) link in Google for "wet t-shirt contest". Should we be proud or scared? Maybe a little of both...

I'd rate it an 8, but you can't dance to it
I'm doing a l'il virtual housecleaning, so if you donated to the boobie campaign and would like one of the wallpapers from it, e-mail me with the (one) selection you'd like from the (eight) choices below. Since I don't have any wallpaper choices from the boys, I included a little something my mom sent me to make up for it (click pop-ups for larger image). Bon appétit!

Hooray for boobies!
Donation made -- total $1251.00 -- by Todd and Robyn Pollman! I just called Susan G. Komen and "Jenny" took my donation over the phone (at approximately 3 p.m. on Monday, November 18th). They said it can take up to 48 hours for the credit card charge to go through, so I will do a screen-capture of our PayPal acct. when the transaction shows up there. If you'd like to double-check and make sure the money went where we say it did, you can contact Kelly Puritz (1-800-462-9273, direct line 972-855-1630). She will handle all inquiries. But everything is done on my end now... Thanks again everyone, for everything!

More boobie bling-bling
We have now officially raised OVER $1K for charity! As of 7:30 p.m. EST we're currently looking at $1032.00 going directly to Susan G. Komen, and we've raised $1391.00 total! (In just $45 more damn dollars we'll have raised literally three-times the cost of Statia's plane ticket.)
So if you think our motives are selfish -- I highly encourage you to get off your asses and go out in your own blogs and raise at least $1000 in 10 days for charity, and then e-mail me that you've done so. THEN -- and only then -- will you have a leg to stand on in my eyes. Otherwise, I invite you to view this again...
Keep those donations coming in folks -- and THANKS AGAIN! Make sure to keep your eyes on this page tonight!

How to PISS ROBYN OFF for $1000, Alex
Yesterday, I linked to this site because its owner wrote and asked if we'd all like to participate (cash prizes of $500 to $2000 each month for the winners). I'm not about joining the soft porn biz. I'm about the charity. So I politely declined and wrote him back saying so, and let him know I'd put a link on his site if others would like to participate. I thought that was that. NOT.
I woke up today to find out the fucker that owns it SIGNED ME UP (without my consent or permission) to be in his affiliate program. I was e-mailed a "welcome to our affiliate program" note with login and password. HELLO?!? You do NOT sign me up for an affiliate program -- especially of that nature -- without my permission. And when I logged in to cancel, you can't cancel your membership through the interface. You have to e-mail him with questions. His lame-ass excuse in another e-mail I found buried in the inbox was "well I thought you could give the proceeds to charity". Again, HELLO?!? Shouldn't that be MY decision, McFly? You took my e-mail address. You abused it. Prepare to die like the pumpkin-fucking scum you are.
So if you choose to affiliate yourself with this character, be warned. He annoits himself as your pimp and expects you to quietly become his bitch -- with or without your consent! I think he forgot who he was messing with...

Friday night I crashed your party
Now your $50+ donation won't just get you the password and address of the private photos page -- it will also get you your choice of the wallpapers shown below in either 800x600 or 1024x768. Hopefully more to be added soon! So read the fine print and e-mail me with any questions (link in the sidebar, "want to write me?"). Please allow for turn-around time though. I expect to be swamped Friday, as the contest wraps up at midnight EST and we have A LOT of new photos planned to reach our final goal. So please stay tuned -- and give, give, give! We still need $240.90 to hit our goal of $1500 in total donations. Thanks!

Jessica has come up with a wonderful idea, and so far, three of us are in! Now a $50 or more donation won't just get you passworded access to the pics I won't display here (a sample image is thumbnailed to the left), but it also gets you boobie wallpaper for your computer! C'mon. We've almost made our goal...help us get there Sooner rather than later! And by the way, the thumbnail pic does involve a water hose...

'Cause the whole world loves it when you don't get down
I just updated the donor's page again, and we're only $255.90 away from our ultimate goal with just under 36 hours left to go. We can do eeeeeet! (And we're only $114.90 away from at least being able to donate a cool grand to charity.) We have now raised $1244.10 since late last Tuesday night, $885.10 of which goes to a breast cancer charity. Don't let us down -- we've helped keep you up for over a week now!
In other, somewhat related, news...I was contacted by ratemywettshirt.com today (not suggested for workplace clicking -- see this entry before you even think about participating), and was offered fabulous cash-prizes. For me, there was a time and a place for that Mr. Garrison, and it was college college. I somehow managed to avoid the wet-tee thang during my four years of mayhem at OU, and wouldn't have started such a blogging fracas this month if it hadn't been for such good causes -- but if a grand prize of $500 to $2000 each month for the winners sounds like your kinda deal, then by all means be my guest!

Ok, I finally called and got a real-live person today at the Susan G. Komen Foundation! I had the name slightly wrong -- I spoke with Kelly Puritz (1-800-462-9273, direct line 972-855-1630). She has passed my message along to someone named "Lindsey" to see if there's any way to specifically register in case anyone wants to check and see that the money will be going where we say it is going next week.
They're also going to discuss if they can try and e-mail me something to that effect, so if I do receive something of that nature, it will be posted immediately of course. They also said that once the donation is made, I'll receive a written proof of donation -- and anyone is welcome to check up about a donation made by me after the fact as well. So if anyone has any questions, just give me a yell! But I've finally talked with someone there live, instead of via their voicemail...
By the way, a couple of new submissions for your viewing pleasure!

Pour some sugar on me
I just updated the donations page again, and with three days left to go in the campaign (donations being accepted thru midnight EST Friday night), we have now raised a whopping $1189.10 -- $830.10 of which will be going to charity! We've had seventy-two individual donations! Thanks again!
Psssst...don't click "read more" at work... Since no one sent me any new pics today, I'll add in a rarely-seen one of me for good measure. Oh Statia and Stacy, etc...three days to go. Who's in for a coupla new pics a night? We are SO close to hitting our goal! Keep 'em coming! (No pun intended.)

The best things in life are free
Money update: I haven't had a chance to update with the new donations made today, but I did try to get in touch with the Susan G. Komen Foundation again earlier this afternoon. And once again, I got voicemail. If you'd like to check up on me the number to call is 1-800-462-9273, and the person I'm trying to speak with (I believe, she talked fast on voicemail -- people when you leave an outgoing message, please talk s.l.o.w.l.y.) is Kelly Turret. So that's where things are at right now. I've left two messages -- this one with an approximate donation amount to date -- so hopefully a dollar figure will be enough encouragement that I'll hear back from them tomorrow. If not, I'll just keep stalking their phone lines until I get a real person! - Robyn

A smashing success, dahlings!
I'm happy to report that we've just booked Statia's airline ticket -- we found it for $40 less through our travel agent over the phone (Traveler's Advantage) than anyone had found today surfing online. She flies in early on the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 27th -- and back home again early on the evening of Monday, December 2nd. The ticket was $309, and a total of $359 after airport taxes and fees.
I have updated the donations page to reflect the cost of the ticket subtracted from the rest of the donations which will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Since Tuesday night we have raised $1029.10 total -- and a whopping $670.10 for charity! Another special thanks goes out to Hosting Matters. Not only have they donated the bandwidth for this campaign, they also just gave the donation that finally pushed us above the $1K mark.
Who says bloggers can't make a difference? If you haven't had a chance to donate yet, I'll still be taking your hard-earned money through Friday night. Thanks again for all of the support everyone. I am literally amazed, and humbled, by all of your generousity!

Best. Hosting Company. Ever.
With permission, I am posting the e-mail I just received from Annette at Hosting Matters. So please indulge me and let me tell her thank you for at least the 1000th time this year.
"If need be, we'll just keep raising it [the bandwidth] to cover the use and consider it our donation to the project and the charity.
Oh, and speaking as someone whose family has a history of breast cancer, whose grandmother died from breast cancer, and whose aunts have all been affected (one of whom is going in for a double mastectomy on Friday next): excellent choice of charity. That's my primary donation these days as well."
Hosting Matters, Inc.
What do you say? I am literally sitting here with tears welled up in my eyes, and thanks doesn't seem to be nearly enough. Get thee to Hosting Matters!

Bloggers gone wild
Since Tuesday evening at 11:01 p.m. EDT, we have now officially collected $819.10! Unbelievable! Once again, thanks so much to EVERYONE who has donated -- be it with cash, photos, and/or verbal and written support. We appreciate it all equally! Since approximately noon EDT today we've had 19,629 hits on my new Nedstat counter (due to the link on FARK.com). And although I'll still be taking donations through next weekend, tonight is the last official boobie hoorah so my blog can return back to its regularly scheduled content. If you've been putting off those boobie photos, it's time to get them in once and for all! Tonight is Boobie Mayhem 2002.
Up next we have Yvonne's wet t-shirt submission and Ruthie's wild side. Boobilicious! Do I hear a ka-ching?

All I've got is a photograph
It seems the FARK'ers are just a wee bit upset that, <gasp!> this campaign focuses on the boobies and not the faces. Well sorry folks, but we're not a porn-site. We're trying to get donations for a worthy cause. I guess it was too much trouble to merely click on the link paired with each boobie photo. So now, just because I care, most of the contestants' photos are at the top of the boobie page. If you're submitting/have submitted and want your photo there as well drop me a line (and a pic). Don't say I never gave ya' nuthin'!
Now...donate! The quicker the cure for breast cancer, the more boobies we'll all have to look at...

A big welcome to all of the FARK'ers stopping by! If you want bare-boobies, please donate to charity, and we'll be happy to pass 'em along. We're greedy, but we ain't stupid. And yes, the heads were cut off on the photos to focus on...well...the beautiful breastesses. But if you will click on each picture, you can match the tatas to their rightful owner. Stay tuned. More boobies on the way this weekend. And thanks for stopping by!
UPDATE: Since we do have so many new people coming in that haven't been around from the start, and don't know just what this is all about, the donations page has been updated with the information about the charity this site's viewers have recommended. We aren't going first-class folks. We just want to raise that much for charity.
UPDATE 2: I have called the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and left a voicemail message for a call back so I can try to register with the charity for donations. That way you can check up on us if you'd like to make sure the money is going where we say it is going. The recording (1-800-462-9273) says they are closed on Monday the 11th, so I should hear back from them hopefully on Tuesday. Please visit their website if you would like to donate directly. Just please leave us a note here saying you did so. Thanks!

Catch a falling star
Just a heads up -- we'll be sleeping very late tomorrow and then driving down to Tampa to join the Sooner Club for OU vs. Texas A&M. Any donations made between now and the end of the game will be posted when I'm back home and online.
I still have promises of photos from a few of you -- so please send 'em in when you can! We'll be taking donations through the end of the weekend and will need more pics to keep us going! She's already up to the challenge. Are you? Don't forget -- the profits beyond what we need for airfare are going to charity!
By the way, everything relating to the Boobie Drive is now on its own page. But the page isn't work-safe (all of the photos, other than pop-ups, automatically display without having to click the "read more" link) -- so be smart when you click! You can vote on your favorite pair there now, too.
Have a great weekend everyone!

A special note from Statia
Hey guys, your lovely boobie girl, Statia here. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all and tell you what awesome people you are. When Robyn started this campaign, I never expected it to get as big as it did. I haven't posted any links on my site because there are a few people that I work with that know the url. The fact that I have to censor myself to begin with pisses me off. I didn't want you to think that I didn't appreciate every penny that you've sent. It makes me feel so loved and awestruck at your generosity. The reason I'm alone for the holidays is due to family differences. Not only are you guys kickass, but so are Robyn and Todd for opening their hearts and home to me at a time when I need it most.
And all of you girls who showed your racks. You guys rock. I love you all.
Now, lemme go shoot some more boobies.

The summit of beauty and love
So you're sitting at home on Friday night. You're bored. You're checking this site every five minutes to find new boobies. Well do I have the pair just for you. You know Da Goddess? Well Joanie has donated not one, but three pics to the cause. And not a single one of them features clothed boobies. That's right. We've crossed the threshold of USA's "Up All Night" into Skinamax territory baby! But you don't get these for free. Oh no. And I won't put bare-boobie pics up in my blog. You're gonna have to pay for the password to see these babies. And Joanie has offered a special present for each donation of $50 or more, in addition to the three photos mentioned above. Who's in?
In case you need reviews before you pay...from the men who've seen 'em...
Todd: "I'd hit it!"
Dan: "Worth every penny!"
The bidding begins at $50 for the password. Don't let the boobies down!

So here's the deal as I sit down to update the donor list for the evening... Since this is all about boobies, it should also be for boobies.
If we go over what it takes for the original project (we never in our wildest dreams thought this campaign would generate this much revenue in such a short time), we want to give the funds to breast cancer research. Can everyone please pipe in and let us know what would be the best charity to direct the funds towards? A celebration of breasts really should be about preserving them as well!
Click the read more (not work friendly) for Michele's contribution -- and stay tuned! We have much more promised for this evening. And with Stacy and I, and a new bottle of tequila, in the same house...it just. Got. Interesting.
UPDATE: Boys can play, too!

Big and small, you love 'em all!
Just a quick update... Todd is home today and we slept late, so I haven't been able to update the tally or donor's list yet, but we've broken the $600 mark! C'mon, you can do better than that! It sounds like Gretchen is stepping up the camera this weekend, so please stay tuned! Todd and I have a few errands to run before Dan and Stacy get here for the evening. After these messages, we'll be right back...

Far be it from me to let down the sisterhood... We've got ourselves a challenge researching airfares and dates available to travel, so it's time to raise the bar higher again. See these? You'll notice that there t-shirt is white. If we can get the donation total raised to $400 by midnight EST (that's four hours from now), this photo will be reshot after a pitcher of water is poured down my front-side. And if we can get it up $500, I'm pretty sure I can guarantee you shots of her, and her and possibly even her and her. (Anyone else want to throw their two, errrr, cents in?)
And stay tuned for new Statia pics during tonight's festivities. Don't let us down. We just might get you up.

Yeah, I called ya' fat - look at me I'm skinny
I laid in bed for over fifteen minutes before finally coming back in here, flipping on the monitor, and sitting down to write. I'm angry and I hope the words will come out right. In the entire time I've been blogging I've deleted less than ten comments left at my site. One of those comments was left Wednesday evening.
What was the insult? It basically boiled down to "your friends are fat and my friend should be embarassed that he sat naked in the same hot tub with them at your house". (Not that it matters, but I remained clothed - and out of the hot tub for the most part that evening - so the comment didn't apply to me personally.) But the comment was left by a woman about other women. Why is it when women start to tear each other apart, the first thing they go after is weight? We all unite to slam fashion magazines and their constant parading of size 2 women, yet most of us seem to take glee in criticizing someone the instant they don't match that criteria.
In the last five years, I have literally been anywhere from a size 6 to 14. I've had surgeries, infertility drugs, and a health-related inability to exercise. When I'm a size 6, I can finally get my ass squeezed into my favorite pair of jeans. When I'm a 14, I finally get those breasts I yearned for in high school when the standard joke I always heard was, "You're like a pirate's treasure...sunken chest." You get some, you lose some. But regardless of my weight, I'm still "me" inside. And my husband still treats me like the size 6 woman he married. Pity some anonymous stranger on the internet might not have the same compassion. If you can't love me when I'm a 14, I sure as hell don't want your love when I'm a 6.
If you EVER think you can come in my house and trash my friends for their weight (or anything else for that matter) you are sorely mistaken. Let she who is without unwanted cellulite cast the first Twinkie. I'll eat it for dessert, and then next I'll go after your soul for the main course. Let's make sure we're crystal on that, shall we? And now, back to your regularly scheduled boobies...

Chicken soup for the blogger's soul
I had this as an "update" for awhile here, but thought it warranted its own entry and attention. The more I think about it, the more I want those who don't know me well to understand... Yes there are jokes about boobies. And yes, there will probably be boobies. But this isn't about buying me a book or a CD or anything off my Amazon list for my 30th birthday that I don't really need. This is about a friend helping a friend. It kills me to think that those I care about may be spending the holidays alone. Todd and I can't always afford to go back home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we have each other. Not everyone in this world is lucky enough to have that. And as such, our home is always open to our friends without someone else to share the occasion with.
So yes, you are "technically" paying for boobies if you follow the letter of our silly campaign. But you can't put a pricetag on friendship. Where Karyn is asking for people to BAIL her out of the choices she's made, we are merely asking those we know to HELP Statia out of circumstances she has no control over. Karyn dug herself into her own hole. She had insane spending habits and needed someone to swoop in and rescue her from her own life decisions. We haven't asked for anyone to make up for past mistakes. With or without this silly little fundraiser, Statia's Thanksgiving Day will just be spent in a different location. Without Karyn's benefactors she would end up in court and most likely losing everything she owned.
If you can't see the difference in that, then please -- go donate to a real charity. We're not stopping you, and we're not saying we're more important. We aren't here to make anyone rich or give them a Winona-sized shopping spree at Saks. We only want to help make them happy...
UPDATE: As of November 10th, we have raised $1029.10 total. Afer the cost of the just-purchased $359 airline ticket, to date as of 7:00 EST on 11.10.02, $670.10 will be going to charity.

Don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
I just want to get one thing clear for the asshole out there who knows exactly who he is. Statia has been one of the biggest Karyn-bashers there is. This was not HER deal. It was mine. I wanted one of our dearest friends down here for Thanksgiving, which as a matter of fact just happens to fall on my birthday this year thanks to poor planning by my parents and the calendar of doom. She was going to be alone. We weren't. It was a joke. A joke that people have happily opened up their wallets for, but a joke nonetheless. I am the one that started it. I am the one that set it up. And I am the the one that informed her it had been done AFTER the fact. We couldn't afford to do it between the three of us, but if you tell two friends, and they tell two friends, and so on...
If people can send $20K to a mindless twit who doesn't want her Prada shoes repossessed, more power to 'em. If people want to send $10 so friends can be together during the holidays and one of their 30th birthdays, that is also their right. I'm so sorry that it has interfered with your little "reputation". Just remember in double-standard land you are the "stud" who got to hold her tits on camera. She is the whore for baring them. What the fuck ever. Can you hear that plonk? It's the sound of your URL dropping off my Blogroll.
