How to look totally crazy just to win a camera - in three easy steps!

Step one:
Gather materials. You will need a sheet of paper, a marker of some sort, scissors, tape and a glass of milk.
Step two:
Use marker to write out your blog's URL on the piece of paper. Cut it out and apply a loop of tape to the back side.
Step three:
Attach the cut out piece of paper to your forehead. Take a huge gulp of milk, making sure that your milk mustache is on prominent display. Snap photo. Post to blog. Pray to all things holy that you win the damn camera so this humiliating moment will be worth it all in the end. Convince self you are not a woman on the verge of desperation, no, it is art.

Voila! However, there are a few things you should know beforehand: it is really hard to smile with a milk mustache, there is no way to look cute with a piece of paper stuck to your head unless you are like, Heidi Klum or a child or just not me, I guess, and be prepared to drink a lot of milk. Ugh.

I would say you look cute....but you do kinda look ridiculous.

BUT....not being afraid to laugh at yourself is cute. Again not to be confused with looking cute. :)

funny stuff. Good luck with the camera.

You sooo deserve that camera! Well done. :D I think you're going to be the new milk mustache model too. You'll be famous and fabulous!! :)

You do look cute, lol.

I heard in order to do those milk mustache commercials, they mix it with something solid to make it goopy.

Athena said...

Chat blanc - Hey baby, got milk? ;)

Monique - Hmm...I guess I could have improvised a little bit on the "milk"...ewwww....lol

I like how you're looking up, as if your eyeballs are holding the piece of paper on your head.
