I left this comment on my friend Tall Penguin’s blog in response to her musings on the absurd nature of her life:
Absurdity and over-the-top awesomeness seem to be major themes in my life right now, while simultaneously being incredibly profound and meaningful. All that stardust coalescing over billions of years has led to this? How fantastically absurd and amazing! I can honestly say that I love my life
I don’t usually go on in great detail about my personal life here. I’m much more comfortable snarking at the religiotards or railing against stupidity. But sometimes I will stop, take a hard look at my life and say, “You know what? Life is pretty fan-fucking-tastic! How in the hell did I end up here?!” Where ‘here’ is this astounding place where I am loved and where I love.
Ahem. Now that I’ve gotten your attention (and I know I made y’all look), let me explain. Very few people can claim to not like boobies. Men and women both generally appreciate a nice rack. At least the men and women I hang out with do. YMMV.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, boobies. Boobies are a precious commodity that deserve to be preserved and kept at their peak operational condition. Unfortunately, that bitch breast cancer doesn’t want us to enjoy boobies. She takes twisted pleasure in destroying lives one boob at a time. I’m anthropomorphizing, but you get the idea. Everyone likes boobies; no one likes breast cancer.
So let’s do something about it. There are already a great number of organizations out there fighting the good fight to save those precious boobies. Doctors and scientists and fundraisers are all working hard so that every teenage boy or girl gets a chance to cop that first feel while awkwardly making out with that cutie that they finally got up the courage to ask out on a date.
Let’s help those organizations out. Let’s raise awareness of breast cancer. Let’s raise money to fight breast cancer. And the best way I can think to do that is to follow the example of the lovely @boobiewed, @shimmer418 and @honey_is_evil and show our boobies! Everyone should participate in Boobie Wednesday(#boobiewed) by changing their avatar or profile pic to a nice set of boobies. It doesn’t have to be graphic; a tasteful shot of cleavage will do. And don’t leave the men out; we want to see moobs too! Men can get breast cancer too.
Educate yourself on what breast cancer is. Go to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (www.NBCAM.org) and check out their “How To Help” section.
The point is to draw attention to the cause. And also to raise money. So visit sites of organizations working hard to save boobies, like NBCF andKomen for the Cure. Unfortunately I just missed the 2009 Boobiethon, but it’s never too early to start getting ready for next year! And please stop by the official Boobie Wednesday store where all profits will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Take action. Show your boobies. Because a nice rack is a terrible thing to waste.
November was a fantastic month. Not only did it contain the birthdays of the CyberLizard and his Mrs., but it was also the first NoVVember, a tribute to the awesome Vic Viper. The Brothers Brick interviewed Nnenn, the driving force behind the project. Now that NoVVember is over, he has put together an awesome poster of all the contributions. If you look closely, you’ll even see a couple from little old me. It’s the closest I’ve ever come to being featured on the Brothers Brick
It’s totally worth the clickthrough to see the enormous original size.
