So Not Hot '08





To my loyal constituents: It is with a heavy heart (and a head-splitting hangover) that I write this concession post today. 

The campaign trail for Hot Blogger Calendar has, alas, come to an end. 

While it was nail-bitingly close: (Top contestant: 1,987 votes, Me: 70 votes), in the end, the people's voice was heard. And that voice said: "Not so much."

My running mate, McMommy, and I perhaps had our hopes a little too high. 

We were already picturing ourselves having pillow fights in our NYC hotel room drinking champagne after the photo shoot.  Perhaps we'd run into some celebrities in the hotel bar like Collin Farrel and Matthew McConaughey. And they'd say, "What are you girls here for?" and we'd say "Oh, just a calendar photo shoot". Then we'd toss our hair and sip our cosmos in an alluring fashion. Then Joe Jonas would come up and order a beer and the bartender would say "Sorry- You're only 19" and I would say "It's OK - he's with me". And then Joe would throw his purity ring across the room.. 

Whoa. I really went off on a tangent there. Sorry.

Anyway: To the 70 people who actually voted for me: You're all invited to my house for a consolation party. Mojitos all around.

And as for this Hot Blogger Calendar thing, it is so not a big deal. Consider it forgotten.

We'll all be voting for you in '09 and Joe Jonas will be 20..and almost legal enough to buy you a drink!

Twisted Lisa said...

I'll Vote!
Here is a tribute to your
Cougarness!

Tenakim said...

you're in in 2009! No doubt!

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

I'm on my way for my mojito since I voted for you... I'll stop and get more mojito mix on the way... Happy Hour Sue 2009!!!!!

Terri said...

jesus I need a mojito right now. I'm with the in-laws, son has a migraine and I'm just OVER EVERYTHING.

BacktoBarnwell said...

I did not vote. Particularly, b/c I am a lazy dumb-ass, who puts things off every day of my life. I told myself that I would vote for you, and never did. It's already the 31st??? I thought it was like the 26th. Must be this small town alcohol.

P.S. I did title a blog after you...who knows? Maybe all the people I tricked into checking my blog with the Josh Flagg/Edith Flagg post, checked yours...and that is a good many. Maybe next year. If not, maybe I'll start my own Bloggers Academy, and together we can host in 2010 the "First Annual Academy of Blogging Awards" on CBS....uh, the alcohol again. sorry.

Jen said...

Aw, I am sorry that you didn't win. I can totally see it for next year.
Thanks for the drink offer. I am going to save it for tomorrow and probably just skip all the fillers and drink vodka straight up b/c we are going to spend the day with the in-laws. Yippee, NOT!!!!

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

I'll be right over for my Mojito!

Sorry you didn't win. Who did win?? Over 900 votes...it wasn't that darn Dooce was it?

The Mom said...

Purity Schmurity!!

I'm still thinking of the tangent!

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

Hey, just a thought... perhaps you should make your own calendar, Happy Hour Sue each month featuring a different cocktail each month??? Now that's a calendar!!!

ciara said...

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

You was ROBBED!

Tara said...

SO sad! I voted for ya! Keep up the good work and we'll get 'em in '09!

JenniBeanV said...

I suspect that there were hanging chads to blame, here!

I demand a recount!

T Williams said...

Too bad. I actually stuck with that voting process even though it took me freakin' 20 minutes to figure it out. But alas, it wasn't meant to be. '09 it is.

Swirl Girl said...

I won't buy the calendar - not without your bodacious ta tas gracing the pages...No way.

Threeboys1mommy said...

You needz to get Bath Tub Gansta on that. Campaign manager straight up, yo! Pimpin' ain't easy Sue. I thought you knew. Leave that up to the big dawgs in '09 ya heard. Holla!

proseandconverse said...

Ok, the Jonas thing? Funniest thing I've read all day. I hope you don't mind that I plan to feature your quote on my blog! (With total linkage/pimpage, of course!)

I did vote for you though, so is my mojito in the mail? Can you overnight it?

Here's where, as promised, I pimped your awesomeness. (Hopefully BG isn't territorial.)

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

BWAHAHAHAHHAAA! That is awesome. You two have my vote!

Sorry about the loss. At least you were nominated!

Brittany said...

It was rigged! Consider yourself better for not having whored yourself out in a nightie to online strangers...even though we totally should have won.

georgie said...

"It's an honor just to nominated" right?
I wasn't deemed hawt enough

Alice said...

Aw crap - if I had gotten my ass in gear you could have had 71 votes.

Give me a heads-up next time when I'm knee deep in caca and I'll round up my peeps for you!

ali said...

With a full year to campaign, it's yours in '09!

jaime said...

how great is MY mini vaca going, you ask?? just wait til i get home and have time to sit and blog...

it's gonna be a doozy.

not in the good way either.

gotta jet and get my son to nappin before i lose it- or before my son says, "mommy, am i driving you bananas again?"

Deb said...

Cocktail party sounds great to me. Just say when and where.

Btw - I wore the blogger T shirt on my cruise last week, and to Bermuda...how's that for advertisment???

Promise said...

I'm not quite sure if Joe Jonas would throw off his purity ring. But that is just my opinion.

Ann said...

I'm ready to campaign Sue!
(And, I returned from my vacation to find a cute mug waiting for me! I'll have to take a picture and post.)

Ann said...

That mug is good for Mojito's too, right?

KaraktinsinFl said...

Oh bummer....I voted for you!
Who won??

HappyHourSue said...

Promise: Are you saying Joe is that devoted to his purity or that I'm not worth it?

Gettysburg Mom said...

You must accept these little defeats in life with grace and a lot of alcohol.

McMommy said...

Yeah, it's me.

Not Hot McMommy.

You know what will be even more fun than the dumb calendar?? Us, at home in our pjs...drinking and making fun of everyone who did make the calendar.

I'm mature like that.

Besides, we've got something even BETTER up our sleeve!! Can't wait to get home from Texas so we can "launch" it!

p.s. Swirl girl...you rock.

McMommy said...

Also.....

I love your commenter Brittany.

She also rocks.

Heinous said...

I think leading off with the pillow fight would have garnered more votes.

Shelley said...

Ok, I must be crazy. I could have sworn that I left a comment on this post this morning. Well, here it is again (I think)

I'm totally coming over for a Mojito because I voted for you. And I'll vote again next year, on the HappyHourSue/McMommy ticket. Woo!

I think you should wait until Joe is 21 anyway...then you can introduce him to Mojitos. Then when he's drunk, you should have no trouble talking him out of that purity ring...not to mention his pants.

Vodka Mom said...

okay, so I didn't vote. Hell, I didn't even know who you WERE. However, if I bring the martinis, may I come to the party?

jill jill bo bill said...

ahem...tap tap tap...Hello? What about me? over here...yoohooo...I think I only had thirty something votes and that's with trying to cheat.

Fine. Tena and I will run on our own ticket. Can we crash your party,though?

the SITS Girls said...

That is so funny. Yes, 09 is definitely your year.

I am Boymom said...

I feel like a disenfrancised voter. I didn't understand the voting process and I got confused. Can we have a do-over? A recount? Where the hell is Jesse Jackson when you need him?

Practically Joe said...

I printed out a copy of your profile picture and you are now my September Girl! Twenty-nine more days with you to go!

Aubrey said...

That's right! You still have '09!! And next time, I promise to vote. LOL

Deb said...

Hey Sue,

I actually put up the post advertising the t shirt, with a link to you. Hope you get some orders.

btw - can I run as your vice blogger next year?

Wayne said...

You lay down the mojitos and I'll line up the shots of GoldShlagger...

I voted for ya, and honestly, they don't have a thing on you. The judges are blind I tell ya, blind!

Linda S said...

what about the electoral college...remember the popular vote doesn't count for squat?

Elisa said...

you were so deserving! also, I really wanted to meet you. oh well. Virtual mojitos all around.

anti-supermom said...

You are so in for 2009. One year wiser and hotter, right ~

Jen said...

I could just picture the scene at the bar with the purity ring flying across the room--hilarious. Sorry to hear you didn't make it into the calendar. I'm really thinking they should rethink how they pick the people for the hot blogger calendar. If your boobs and McMommy's perfect teeth don't qualify, I don't know what would!

Pleasing Procrasinator said...

I was so looking forward to seeing what kinds of things you and BG would do in NY.
*CHEERS* to 09.

BusyDad said...

I do have to assemble a cabinet, you know. Can you be my gang czar?

LuLu said...

You have my vote!
