I'm a no-good, filthy dirty whore
Just so we've got that straight... If you're going to spam my comments with the same IP but different names, at least be a little more original. Really. That one is tired. It's run its course. And just in case you're stuck, here's a thesaurus.

I've mentioned this to those close to me -- but since I've gotten so many "when's the Boobie-Thon II" queries this week -- I'll just put it all right out here in the open this very moment. In answer to the main question, this October, to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness month.

But let me sidebar for a moment... The only way. And I repeat the only way I will host and coordinate this as an annual event is if it retains the original spirit of the first Boobie-Thon. What's that mean? Not only is it bloggers for charity, it's also going to be bloggers helping their own. We're a community, and part of being in a community is looking out for one another and supporting each other when times get tough. So $359.00 of the money raised this year (the price of Statia's plane ticket last year) will be going to a blogger "charity". What "charity" you might ask? Well when the time comes I'll try to gather as many different bloggers as I can from different walks of life and form a panel. The panel will take submissions from various bloggers pointing out causes needing funds. This could be anything from charity events, medical expenses, natural disaster expenses, you name it...we'll accept applications for it... I don't even have to know the people and projects being submitted. It just has to be something from the blogging community. Because I'm not licensed or funded we obviously won't be able to launch full-scale fraud investigations -- so we'll be relying on that thing called trust, gut instinct, and the old-fashioned honor system. As the time draws nearer, I'll be relying on everyone's advice and help to work the kinks out. Every other penny raised beyond the first $359 will go to Susan G. Komen. Last year we sent the Foundation $1251.00.

Let me make it clear that I flat-out refuse to donate my time and effort unless the spirit of the original "contest" lives on. I have taken flak from here to Oklahoma and back on raising money for friends. Well I'm sorry, but when my friends are in need -- that's what I do. And I'll continue to do it again this year. That is, if you're all in... See you in October!


Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Damn, that will be here sooner than we think. Count me in this year as well. It is pretty obvious that we can trust you. At least I can anyway.

I'm appointing accountants this year, too -- and will set up a special PayPal account just for the Boobie-Thon. I tried to document where every penny went last year as best I could -- but the more people know / see as always, the more legitimate it is.

I'll be proud to support the Sequel in any capacity, Robyn.

Your commitment to the people you love and to your ideals is one of the things I admire about you. Thank you.

Are you going to be accepting new boobies?

Or maybe I should ask if you will accept big old boobies that would be new to the "thon"? Well actually they would be old, big boobies...

Heck is there an age limit to be a boobies participant?

Well that won't work either cause I don't tell anyone my age... but the guy that sits next to me at work thinks I am 35... and he is 28...

We'll be taking every blogger that wants to submit when the time comes! :-)

I know where you can find an accountant if you need one... ;p

You can count me in too (well, for donations... you know I love you but you also know how shy I am!)... Robyn, I know you personally and I can say with all honesty that you are one of the best friends anyone could ever have. You are loyal and you care with a passion that I respect and admire. Kudos to you for putting yourself out there and helping others. If other people don't agree, well... that is their loss. Pure and simple.

count me in...at least for a donation...I'm not sure anyone would want to see what I have! But I'm there for ya!

I don't have boobies (*sigh*), and after trying to scrape together money for Gnomedex I realized I don't have that either (if that changes before then I'll be happy to donate). Whatever else I can offer is at yer service. *bow*

I started reading you shortly after you held the first one. So count me in this year. :)

Count me in as well. I can help out with any technical details too.

I'll be there in each and every way I can... money, boobies, you name it! I didn't participate last time, and I've regretted it ever since.

¤ ¤ credit: Jennifer | 04.19.03 at 12:12 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I'll show some boobies too, maybe it will help me come out of my shell... so I got until October to think up some elaborate prop ;)

represent'nnnnn the saggy boobies again, yo kwnot i!!!!

My wife and I both have MBA's and tons of experience in accounting and auditing, so we can help out on that end if you need us. Oh, and she's got boobies, too. (I'm doing my best to keep from growing my own boobies, but the old I get, that harder that becomes) Just let us know if we can help out.

¤ ¤ credit: dave | 04.19.03 at 03:49 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I think it's a great idea that should be continued, naysayers be damned. LOL What the hell, I'll even participate. :)

¤ ¤ credit: Michelle | 04.19.03 at 07:54 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I am so there! I will help in any way I can.

Robyn, you truly rock!

(And I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog when I started out blogging last month...the more I read what you write, the more I respect you.)

I can hardly wait! That's a great idea to take care of friends first. I've been on both the giving and receiving ends; nothing compares to how it feels when friends come together for you. And I don't think there is any doubt this will be anything but legit. "See you" in October!

if i had good boobs and wasn't so shy, i'd share in the lovin;) breast cancer needs all the support and awareness it can get.

I'll post this here too. My suggestion for unofficial theme song of Boobie-Thon 2003:

Bad Reputation

I think I could turn that and some images into a flash movie to commemorate the event. Lemme know. :)

I'll never understand random losers on the internet that stop by just to cause shit! Oh well! Count me and my little guys this year!!

¤ ¤ credit: kimmie | 04.19.03 at 08:39 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Count me in as well hon! :) I just started reading you as the last one was going on and didn't feel I could just jump in as the thing was almost over! I'll help in any way you need, technical, etc. Just yell! ;)

Count me in for the donations front. I always have fun spending money for breastages.

Wait, that didn't sound right...

I'm dave's wife - the MBA, CPA, mother - with boobies. My grandmother is a Breast Cancer survivor. The Komen Foundation is a charity I regularly support. Count me and my "mommy" boobies in too.

Normally I wouldn't be showin my boobies, but, HA, I'm preggo and I actually have sum! Good timing! Anything else I can do to help I will do too! Whatever you need, count on me!
