That’s it. I’m turning VEGAN!


I sent this text to my friend, Mel today at 6:28pm.

Confused? I’m talking about the Circle of Moms Top 25 Mom contests. They have loads of ’em for every interest group. My category … ‘Funny’ … is just one of many. There’s Top 25 Fashion & Beauty MomsCreative Moms … Couponing Moms … Political Moms … Outdoorsy Moms … Foodie Moms … Eco-Friendly Moms … Vegan & Vegetarian Moms …. etc.

That last group was running its contest in tandem with the Top 25 Funny Moms contest (ends 2/13/13). I don’t know if the ‘Vegan’ group started earlier than the ‘Funny’ group but they ended today. They are finished. Free. They no longer need to fret about their daily rankings. They no longer need to teach their grandmothers how to vote from their home computers. They no longer need to huckster themselves via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Ebay, Public Acccess TV, singing telegrams, morse code, carrier pigeon, skywriting, Burma-Shave signs, cat & hamster sandwich boards and whatever else their budgets can afford.

And, although the contest has been fun, I’ll admit I’m a little envious. Why couldn’t *I* have created a vegan blog? I hate meat. I mean … except for seafood and stuff. (Remember, I’m from Louisiana.) Do you think they would accept a cheese-and-crawfish-eating “vegetarian?” I’m not a big consumer of cow or pig anyway. So that just leaves birds. (in a pathetic display of rationalizing) If I promise to stop eating birds right now, can I join the vegan bloggers and end my days in competition?

Yeah. Mel thought I was a little nuts, too. So I guess I’ll just stick with ‘Funny.’ Or ‘Funny-ish.’ Sigh.


But, Michele, how do we vote?

(1) Click here

(2) Scroll to ODNT

P.S. You can vote for more than one funny mom. Might I recommend my friend, Mel at AccordingToMags?
P.P.S. In my Circle of Moms travels, I met Cindy who maintains a blog called that placed 2nd in its category today. Visit her when you can & tell her ODNT said hi.

I need this, people! I almost gave up cheese for votes!

  1. Vegan is a bit too hard core for me – no butter, no milk, no fun! If it would save my life….yeah, probably not 100% sure there. I don’t understand making “food” to mimic animal products. If they want to eat turkey/cheese/bacon/ice cream,they should just *eat* turkey/cheese/bacon/ice cream in moderation from kindly cared for creatures instead of making extruded mushroom playdoh that they try and convince people tastes *just like* turkey/cheese/bacon/ice cream. It doesn’t!

    Even though you’re ready to be done with the marketing part of the contest (it’s not too late to order temporary tramp stamps for all your friends & famliy to finish spreading the word to any undersaturated niche markets), your ranking is not too shabby! But if you’re going to give up anything good for Lent (butter, milk, etc.) then maybe you should use to Mardi Gras to pre-celebrate your Funny Moms success. But no extruded mushroom playdoh!

  2. For the record, I was laughing too hard to properly type or punctuate at the text before that stating, “And now you think I’m crazy. Oh, God.”

    But, no worries. Two crazies together equal a normal. 🙂 That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

    Thanks for the shout out and the support all around. Not sure you could go Vegan. Think of the cheese, Michele. THINK OF THE CHEESE!! xo

  3. Sadly Michelle, if you want to be a vegan, you must give up eating cheese. We all know how much you love your cheese- don’t do that to yourself!

  4. Dude, vegan means no meat OR dairy…..or any animal product at all (i.e. Oreos!)

  5. Ok, here’s your test for being a vegan (leaving aside the “no cheese” thing for a minute:
    take the following and make them delicious: bean sprouts, mushrooms, mud.

  6. Ha! This is why you and Mel should be tied for #1
