as I march up the center isle with my crown and scepter... nodding to the crowd, waving wrist, wrist, elbow, then elbow! The cheering, the thunderous applause.. so overwhelming and yet... so damn delicious! As I slowly ascend the steps to the stage, I reflect on the other people who helped make this all possible. Barb, for hosting the site. Lynx for showing me what "dark" is suppose to look like. Charlene, for nudging me on while still giggling side by side. The bugs, Glow and Lady, for their fabulous contributions... ah the list goes on. I am standing at the microphone now. Shaking slightly, so excitedly short of breath, trying to concentrate on the crowd while repeatedly reminding myself..."act humble, act humble"
I have practiced this a thousand times in the mirror. Always perfect coiffed, calm but with a slight blush and glow. Take a gasp and put a hand to your chest to show your sincerity. Now, just before the crowd completely sits down... opening my mouth to speak the words I have rehearsed... "I would like to thank the academy..."
uh what...oh damn .. wrong speech!!
Ok, so I am not 18 and writing country music and I don't' have anyone jumping in and saying I don't deserve it... well maybe a few but they are so much more polite about it. I am still so damn tickled I could piddle!!
I was picked as MASTER OF MACABRE for November 2009!!!
Thank you, thank you everyone for making this possible! Especially you Mr Random Generator. You wonderfully sexy number picking thingy you. I will save you a seat at the head table..maybe afterwards drinks...ummm??
on a more serious note.. I am pleased and having so darn much fun. I encourage everyone I know to check out Barb's challenge and play along a few times. It is fun to let your hair down and stretch your boundaries. Stepping outside the box is relaxing, tax deductable and calorie free! You never know, maybe you won't bumble your acceptance speech as much as I did!
till next time, ENJOY! the Oz
