Is Competition A Necessary Evil? Discuss....

I am sorry to be so demanding of you, but there is more voting to be done over at Leesa's Battle of the Blogs.

You can vote for Ms Signs and me here.

You can vote for Ms Pants, Yellow Ducky and the Lovely Caroline here.

Nmj, Pony Boy and Mr Zhisou are not out - they are just waiting in a field for the naked mud wrestle to start.

Thank you for your patience. Normal service will be resumed shortly.

The links aren't working ... except for the naked mud wrestle. I vote for that again. Obviously.

nmj said...

Congrats, lovely Ms M, I have just this minute voted for you in round 2!
(and ms pants & signs, & caroline & ducky)

Ms Melancholy said...

Oh bugger. I shall amend post-haste. (By the way, do you want us to fit in a quick round of egg and spoon aswell? It is clearly your particular forte. And I hope the eggs were free-range.)

Caroline said...

I am constantly running an egg and spoon race. I'm an expert. Perhaps we could combine the sports. The eggs were wooden and I used my thumb.

Ms Melancholy said...

Hey, nmj - just left a message at your house. Looking forward to the real battle ahead so build up your strength and practice your moves. But first we have to find Pony Boy.

Caroline, did I imagine it or did you just put up a post and then delete it? Was my comment too risque? You may not want your lovely readers checking out Leesa's special blog, I guess! Apologies if I was indiscreet.

"Normal service will be resumed as soon as we have cleared the body off the line."

I gather there was one today. Very sad.

Ms Melancholy said...

Oh shit, Dandelion. That is in very poor taste then. I may have to delete that bit. Very sad, I agree.

Reading the Signs said...

dear Ms M, it's nice to know I'm in the good company of you and Ms Pants. And greetings also to Caroline and Yellow Duck. But where is she (Ms P.) I wonder?

trousers said...

I too checked out the sex blog. Why was I surprised at what was there (not that I'm criticising)? Its like pressing a light switch and saying, "you never said it would light things up in here" or similar...

I've voted but I'm not telling you lot. (A clue though - if you could ever be bothered, check out how many comments I've made on the blogs of your opponents)

Dandelion said...

I don't think it is poor taste, ms melan, just a coincidence. I also sort of feel a solidarity with those people. Just today, when I heard the announcement, it got me thinking about the family, you know, the human tragedy behind it all.

Caroline said...

I didn't want to delete the post. I hate blogger. I don't understand what I did wrong. I changed a spelling mistake and lost the whole post.
Grrrrrrrrr.

Nikhil said...

Ah, as i re-read lady chatterley's bugger, I realized all competition is evil. The urge to win will end up in drawing out daggers.

Congrats, btw, at reaching the second round. Have fun.
:P

Blogger sucks ass.

It's true. Go Wordpress!

yellowduck said...

I don't often agree with this left-wing mamby-pampy (yes, tongue-in-cheek, hold your horses) but on this he is spot on.

Atyllah said...

Done and dusted, Ma'am.

Ms Melancholy said...

Hey Signs - I don't know where Ms Pants is, either. I miss her when she is quiet.

Hi again Dandelion - it suddenly felt in poor taste, so I removed it. Oddly, I always think about the train driver. To be inadvertently caught up in someone else's tragedy seems so bloody unfair.

Glad for your incompetence Caroline! Was worried I had blemished your lovely blog.

Nikhil - thanks....and same to you x

Hey tyger - don't you have work to do?

Hey Ducky - please refer to above remark.

Hi again Atyllah - thanks!

Ms Melancholy said...

Ooh, lovely Trousers, I somehow missed you out. I am now off to check your comments...I can't wait. Have you been overwhelming them with your blinding British humour?

Ms Melancholy said...

Looks like I'm getting my ass whupped in round 2. Muddy field, here we come....

tyger said...

Had work to do Ms. M.

Ms Melancholy said...

Ok Tygs - even you are allowed an evening off.

trousers said...

Thanks Ms Choly. Regarding my comments - what I meant but unfortunately didn't put across very well (perhaps due to 4 pints of Budvar Dark and a large glass of whisky - I'm on annual leave this week) was that I haven't made any comments whatsoever on any competing blogs. Therefore it should be clear where my voting loyalties lie.

Sorry to be so obtuse. That first sentence I've written isn't the most concise either, is it? Plus ca change...

yellowduck said...

I love it when you get stern, though. Very sexy ;)

But don't talk to me about work. I have been without income for nearly two weeks now. Was ready to go when the nursery called that Duckling was out with fever - again. The joys of being a New Age dad...

You, too, huh? My opponent is slowly beating me to death. I can't help you out anymore. I have already voted for you...

Ms Melancholy said...

Sorry Trousers, - I am being too literal again. I am suffering from this affliction at the moment. I need some time off.

Poor Ducky - it is the peril of the self-employed. Our children get sent to school with swamp fever. They are not allowed to be ill, ever. And with Mrs Ducky being savagely exploited by the German health system, too.

Reading the Signs said...

Ms M, I have posted a reply to you on mine - the blog battle thing is becoming a bit odd.

Anyway, what was that you said about mud wrestling? It's beginning to appeal.

Once you are done with the warm-up sets, begin with strength training or more specifically opt for step aerobic exercises as they will help you burn out all your excess fat, almost instantly.

For those of you looking out for complete core strengthening, opt for weight training. A disclaimer though - for those of you who wish to have a lean body, alternate between aerobics and weight training as only weights will develop muscles.
