the tenets of blog fu

1. Motivation. Have the desire to succeed, especially at personal goals such as having a nine-inch cleavage crack in every picture:

The best way to show off your cleavage is to bug one eye practically out of your head while picking your teeth with an original Jeff & Jill Went Up The Hill business card.

2. Confidence. Believe in yourself, particularly when struggling to figure out cutting-edge innovations such as the selfie stick:

Don’t blame poor Hall of Tweets for being completely mystified by modern technology. She is but a simple child of the 80’s.

3. Discipline. Follow directions, even when you are drunk and someone says “HEY! LET’S MAKE AN INCREDIBLY UGLY FACE IN THIS PICTURE!”:

The Outnumbered Mother and I thought this was an ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS idea at the time. Now we have regrets.

4. Perseverance. Keep working for what you believe in, like winning First Place in Nickelodeon’s #MiddleSchoolAwkward contest:

I got a trophy and everything! My son wanted to know what it was for. I told him I won a “World’s Ugliest Kid” contest.

5. Respect. Be willing to respect yourself and others, no matter how many watered-down appletinis may or may not have been consumed:

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this is not the best photographic evidence of me and Jeff & Jill Went Up the Hill respecting ourselves. (Please note appletini.)

Keeper of the Fruit Loops and Foxy Wine Pocket respecting the SHIT out of themselves.

6. Righteousness. Do the right thing, like licking honey mustard off of other people’s business cards so not a drop goes to waste:

Stop Me If I Told You This MIGHT regret letting me take this picture, but I can’t know for sure.

7. Tolerance: do not allow emotions to overflow and affect character, even if you ARE dressed like Mary Katherine Gallagher:

So that’s that! I am now a blog fu Master.

I’d like to just say that there were so many more pictures, and that I had fun with so many more people, but I could not possible incorporate everyone and everything into one single blog post. I tried my best, but my frustrations with Photoshop and WordPress made me give up after about three hours. The lazy is strong with this one.

(It’s probably for the best. A lot of my pictures sucked ass. Trust.)
