It's all about meme!

I've been memed, and since I've been working on the funniest portrait EVAR (which I am waiting for permission to share), I'm memeing this memer. You can blame Kelly at Southern Fried Children.

The rules of this meme are as follows:

What this is about: To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again. (blah blah, more attention = happy Jodee)

 1) Blogger Blarger is nominated to take part
 2) Blogger Blarger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog blarg– 1 link for each category.
 - Your most beautiful post
– Your most popular post
– Your most controversial post
 – Your most helpful post
– A post whose success surprised you
– A post you feel didn’t got the attention it deserved
– The post that you are most proud of

3) Blogger Queen of the Cheese nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.
4) These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers
5) And so it goes on! (like a ponzi scheme of getting views, HUZZAH)
6) The site Trip Base be sharing the best posts from participating bloggers on their blog and everyday on Facebook and Twitter at #My7Links

My most beautiful post- Because it was written with love and crap... And Many More

My most popular post- Hands down, Sparkles is Pregnant!? I illustrated this for Jen Yates and holy crap, she posted links and then people actually started reading my silliness!  I try to do the same for people who are funny and awesome, in part, because of how awesome and gracious Jen is.

My most controversial post- Seriously, I lost like 20 readers because of this post. I am sure I will lose more when I remind people that I don't want to make da babies. Dirty Dirty Baby-Hater

My most helpful post- What is more helpful than teaching people how to do algebra using zombies? Nothing. Nothing in the world. Not a damned thing. Monster Math- Zombie and Negative Numbers

My most surprisingly successful post- If you thought I was a freak before - You guys are nice and are good at reassuring non-breeding freaks of nature that they might just be okay. I didn't expect it.

My sad lonely post that needs love- You got red on you!  I worked really freaking hard on this... spent a billion and 42 hours creating it and was fully expecting Simon Pegg and/or Edgar Wright and also Nick Frost to actually look at it and retweet it to everyone in the world and then I would be the most famous blarger EVAR... but alas, very few people looked at it and after about 15 times of sending the link to Simon Pegg et al, I gave up because I just felt desperate and sad.  If any of you can make him look at it and share it, I'll do something gracious to show my appreciation.

My proud post baby that is better than all the rest- The Grand Canyon Incident

AND I now have permission, so you get to see the portrait I did.  I am thinking that this would be the best kind of portrait business, ever, to start.  I could do cute family portraits where everyone is happy and posed (at $60 an hour), but this kind is WAY more fun.

That is Mary of Just Inappropriate with her lovely children... and she is my first tag for this meme. She would probably like you to notice that she looks like a Disney Villain. I think this is one of the greatest family pictures ever.  It could be an offshoot of Awkward Family Pictures... "Ruined Portraits"  who wants to start it with me?

But I digress, I also nominate:
Sarah of A Blogful of Boredom
Jennifer of You're doin' it wrong
Sars of You Got Sars

And anyone else who wants to do it!


  1. Omg that is the best portrait EVAR. And I hadn't read the Grand Canyon Incident. That is so fucked it requires multiple sad faces. :( :( :(

  2. I love the portrait and I forgot how much some of the older posts made me laugh :D

  3. Hey! I never been nominated for nothing before-I feel like I have won a.....hey, wait a minute, "And anyone else who wants to do it!"

    Anyways, you are so talented!
    How easily you jump from cartoony to realism in your pictures makes me jealous.
    Thanks for the nomination, JRose, I better get to work!

  4. @Gweenbrick- The realism is actually easier for me. The comic art scares the hell out of me.

  5. Holy crap, that portrait is awesome! Do you do them for the non-blogging populous as well? Because I would TOTALLY buy one!

    Well, give you money to do one of my family. Buying someone else's family portrait sounds kind of creepy.

    Unless it's a famous family, like the Brady Bunch or the Du Bois' from Medium. (Guess what I've been watching on Netflix?)

  6. Bahahahaha I love your representation of Good Son and Mean Daughter!

  7. @Anonymous- Yes, I do paint portraits digitally, like this one, at the price quoted in the post.

  8. Oh, holy night! I'm the worst blog-stalker in town! I didn't even read this post until this morning, hence the comment this morning. I'm immensely flattered that you like my blog enough to nominate me... It's like the tiny-screen emmys or something, right? This explains the unexplained (and beloved) new followers on my site! You're the jinkiest!
