Hug Me Marcus

I think I’m out of words. I’ve been writing and talking (well typing) all weekend. I’ve been trying to help some new writers at the Bar. Also, the horse racing sim has a new message board and I had to go figure out all the moderator stuff. I watched the Belmont. Big bust there. Posted a couple of times at the Bar. Worked on some future posts for the Bar. Worked on a piece for the Z competition. Posted a riposte at JR Ward’s message board. Created a blog for the sim’s version of the Olympics. Listened to the BTR shows… Ack. I’m tired.

That being said… Here’s Marcus. I need some yummy deliciousness. After all the political stuff that went on last week on blogs and on TV, I thought I’d show all the women how great a tree hugger could be. I never thought I could ever be envious of a hunk of wood, but damn. I wish that was me he has those arms and thighs wrapped around. RAWR. I also drooled over the Polo Black commercial all of Sunday. Motley was sprawled in my bed watching Sunday Super Heroes on FX all day. They kept playing the Polo Black commercials that feature Nacho Figueras. Whew! Hotness!

The Marcus numbers for this week are weak, but I rather expected that since my posting and visiting other blogs was weak as well. It was a tough week for me at the office. Busy, busy. Anyway, it’s a recap week and as a reminder there’s only 2 weeks left in this contest. Here’s how the numbers look for the top five: Mary – 102, Fab – 82, Shinygal – 73, Matt – 70, Susan – 69. I dunno, with two weeks left I almost think this could be anyone in the top five’s game.

Before I head off, I gotta mention a couple things. One, is the poll on the vampire show. I’m leaving it up cause I just don’t know what to do. Only five votes isn’t much. If you have an opinion on this, please vote. We’re talking monthly or quarterly shows, not weekly.

The other thing is that I have to say how flattered I was that Jason X took my TT post and used it to create a post about Blair. I still say she’s a soul sucking demon not a blood sucking vampire, but I appreciated the tribute to my work here. I think that deserves my Alaric. The Alaric doesn’t have actual criteria yet. I’m gonna be figuring that out though, same as with Marcus, once I’ve handed out the prize for Marcus in two weeks. I hope to have it all nailed down by the week of July 1 and then post the criteria on a static page.

Shit. I talk a lot for someone who was all worded out. I know, I know… Charlie Brown’s teacher. Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah. Now, here’s the most important words for you from me: Luv ya! MUAH!

Hungover Marcus Monday

I’m not really hungover, but I have that exhausted feeling that you get when you’re hungover. Not that I have any real experience with hangovers. Even when I drank too much, I never woke up with the pounding headache that announces a hangover. I would, however, wake up exhausted. Yesterday, while all the TC08 people were making their hungover ways home, I wrote six thousand words. That’s a lot, as any writer can tell you.

On Saturday, amid all the TC08 Flickr photos and Tweets, I was reading the Pink Chair Diaries. I decided I wanted to submit a story. The guidelines say approximately five thousand words a submission. So I spent some time Saturday night figuring out my plot. Sunday morning I made my banner and started on the story. At about 10:30 Sunday night I submitted it, all 5988 words of it. Hopefully, I’ll have a URL for the story soon. I’ll post it here when I do. The majority of those 6K words was all about sex, so I know you’ll all like that.

Today’s Marcus photo is one I saved for just such as day as this. He looks plastered. He either didn’t know or didn’t care that someone was giving him the rabbit ears. I don’t care. This guy’s hot even when he’s drunk and acting stupid. He can have all the tequila shots he wants from my cleavage. I figured that after all the drunken TC08 pics, I should post a drunken Marcus. It just sorta fits the theme of the aftermath of TC08.

Before I list the Marcuses, did you notice the other little pic in the upper right corner? The little giraffe labeled Alaric? My friend Jen, who sent me Marcus, sent me a new giraffe. So I created the Alaric Award. I’m thinking this award must be given for something to do with either kissing or drinking or maybe both. Alaric Kohl, the Bar Story character, is a drunk for the better part of the story. An asshole, but funny at times, a total poker shark, and… a drunk. When he meets Lex, he sobers up. He’s still an asshole sometimes, still cleans up at poker, drinks but doesn’t get drunk… and is always looking for an excuse to kiss his woman. I’ll figure it out eventually and post the criteria for the Alaric.

As for the Marcus, Marty was the man this week with 7. I think that’s only because Mary was busy having a baby. Hmmmn. Fab has 6. Othurme has 4. Mary and Matt got 3 each. I think Matt’s just been busy though, not off having a baby like Mary. Although if he was, we gotta get him on Springer or at the very least the Tyra Banks Show! Karl, Jason X, and Metalmom each have 2. I know MM and Karl were busy at TC08 which is why they haven’t been by much. As for Jason… his mojo was back so he was busy getting some. He was REALLY busy this week. If you don’t believe me, head on over to The User Pool to see for yourself. Next Monday is our next recap. We’re almost to the end of this round.

While I was busy with my six thousand words, the PITA went to Rip-offland. She should have pics and video over on Socially Dead at some point this week. That’s it for Marcus Monday. I’m taking my 6K word self to bed now. Enjoy your week!
