Genius Discovered!

Over at Screaming Me-Me you can find a caption contest from time to time. The moment I happened upon her site, I was hooked into the idea. I was also totally heebeejeebeed out by the picture, and with that kind of inspiration, one must join in the fray. In fact, I entered one caption and then thought of another. There in front of my laptop, in private, I bathed in the warm flashes of one idea after the other, in a veritable caption frenzy. My famously nimble mind (forget about that last post) not only fostered a cornucopia of captions, but in my creative genesis, I became . . . a captionista!

Talk about an achievement! And look at this bold symbol of my ascension to grace. Does that not look like another important international symbol of celebrity?

Oh, people, I was so WRONG when I vowed not to make any New Year's resolutions for 2010. I should totally have proclaimed, I shall win a caption contest and become a badass captionista (I just added that badass part because, frankly, captionista lacks the intimidation factor necessary to strike fear into the hearts of anyone daring to compete with me. Obviously, I am not one to be trifled with). So if I'd made that incredibly challenging NYE resolution, then all of my out-of-the-gate unachievements accrued since January 1 to date would by now have gone the way of the 8-track. Oh, yes. One caption win has that much power.

So thank you, Screaming Me-Me, for discovering my true talent and appropriately rewarding me. People, go here and witness my genius: FL's Genius Photo Caption

Of course, it's possible that a long dry spell could intervene between this achievement and the next. Hmmm. Wait, forget I said all this. Just forget it, will you? If I never win another caption contest, I'll be incomparably humiliated. So really, forget I mentioned it. I beg you.

If you would like more caption challenges, go to reflectionsofamiddle-agedfatwoman.blogspot.com. She posts up caption contests every once in a while. Her blog is a total hoot, too.

Congrats on your award. Word of advice: Don't put it next to suedey or it may be lost for months.

I bow before the bad-ass captionista! You rule!

Isn't a captionista a well-dressed Central American guerilla fighter?

BTW, that caption photo was just naz-tee! Caption was hilarious, though :)

You always know what to say.

Badass Captionista is the least of it. But a fine title nonetheless.

Congratulations!

Congratulations! Well done!

I hope to see you each and every Wednesday for Caption This!

I can see that captioning would be one of your talents, as you excel at the witty one-liner. I used to enter Diesel's caption contests, and I sucked at it, as I needed about 500 words to even attempt wit. Le sigh.

I feel inadequate in any response that I could give to you, as it would fail to encapsulate your genius.

Brian Miller said...

cornucopia of captions . . . a captionista!

Where do you get this stuff! You seem so normal in person. I think you need to get out more.
