The Great Experiment: Embarrassing Moment

CONGRATULATIONS CASSIE AT DAREDEVIL CABARET! YOU JUST WON $112!

VOTING IS CLOSED AT COMMENT 70

All right people, $112 are at stake. I'm thrilled we got so many new folks playing this month. And we still collected more than $100 even without last month's mysterious gentleman who donated $100. Pretty good, I'd say. I'm going to close comments on this one at noon Mountain Standard time tomorrow. That should give everyone in all the time zones enough time to vote.

Also, some folks accidentally went over the 300 word limit so I decided to just let it go this time. Longer entries could work for 'em, could work against 'em. Next time maybe I'll bump up the limit to 500 words, but any more than that and I think it might become too time consuming to read all the entries.

Here are the links. Read and enjoy. Vote via comments on this post, but remember, only one vote per IP address. If you use the same computer to vote twice I won't count that vote. Also, you can vote under whatever name you want, including "anonymous". Anyone is welcome to vote whether they donated or not. Tell your friends and family to come vote, whoever, but don't just have them vote here, tell them to read all the blogs, that is, after all, the point. And please, if you have the time or particularly enjoy an entry, leave a comment! I left a comment on each blog and found it to be pretty easy. No signing a contract to give away your first born or enter your mother's maiden name or anything. So leave a comment... Good karma, get to know each other and all that do-gooder stuff. Also, I'd advise all the bloggers to put a link back to this page at the bottom of their post so all the folks that read their blog will know to come here and vote for them.

Good luck everybody! And thanks for playing. In no particular order:

Norma - November Juliet

A Girl - The Weight Of It All

Shelly - Hair Bows and Guitar Picks

Cassie - Daredevil Cabaret

Daycare Lady - Daycare Lady

Cookieface - Drunken Dater

Wyndi - Wycked Texan

Kimberly - Oh, joy

Karen - Urban Aloha

Jen - You Can Take The Girl Out Of The Country But You Can't Take The Country Out Of The Girl

S'Dizzle - Untitled Distraction

These were so fun to read! My vote is for Shelly but I really liked all of them.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnne

Was a toss up between Drunken Dater (so funny and obviously a blog I'll have to keep tabs on) and Oh, joy. I think I'm going with Oh joy because OMG! She totally did it in front of her husband!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGemma

I definitely vote for S'Dizzle, Untitled Distraction. It was excellent!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commentersarah

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTabi Rambles On

I anticipated what Shelly @ Hair Bows and Guitar Picks story was about... oh my gosh... yep, this is the one I'd pick.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGrace

I vote Shelly - Hair Bows and Guitar Picks! hilarious!!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEmmy

S'dizzle!!!! A funny, well-written post indeed. I mean, changing into a swimsuit with your bro in the car would be bad enough, right? Then peeing? Not a good day.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

Tough choice, they are all good, but I'm going to throw in my vote for drunken dater, funny, embarrassing, and took some cohones to write.

Drunken Dater - gross, but certainly embarrassing.

I vote for S'Dizzle. All of them were very well written, though.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPaul A. Zappala

Those are some funny stories, but Shelly gets my vote!!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterhubman

While cookieface is hilarious and one hell of a share - my vote is for the best written - Daycare Lady. Good luck with your blog...

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCrummyMummy

Daredevil Cabaret is my vote!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJanda

Guns and a shootout, are you kidding me? Daredevil Cabaret gets my vote!!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterthelma

All of them were pretty funny, esepcially Hairbows & Guitar Picks and.Oh Joy! So funny!

HOWEVER, my OFFICIAL VOTE goes to DRUNKEN DATER!!!

It's happened to me and she told it so well and so humurously that I can't help but VOTE for DRUKEN DATER! Good luck to everyone who entered though, looking forward to next month's topic!

Blessings,
-Sarah Liz :)

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Liz

Isn't it everyone's worst nightmare to be naked in public? Second on that list has to be wearing your clothing inside out. I vote for Norma.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterT

I vote for Norma.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNorma

I vote for Kimberly - Oh joy...I hope you tell us the REAL story!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

Norma!!! Embarrassment with Style

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRob

My vote is for Shelly because I have nightmares of that happening to me and my hubs!!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJoy

I'm loving all the embarrassing moments and looking forward to voting.
But I must tell you why I didn't enter.
My embarrassing moment was just too short to warrant an entry. I was telling Paul's daughter (12 but sweet, kind, wonderfully honest, sunny personality and not a hint of hormonal teenager yet) that I was thinking of entering Monica blog competition and this month the subject was 'Embarrassing Moment'. Quick as a flash and with no intended malice whatsoever she said
"Oh that should be really easy for you, you've had so many."

I was crushed - just how embarrassing is that!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Voting for Daredevil Cabaret. Humor, a little suspense, the elements of a great story. You go, girl.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGloria

I'm with you Amanda (or Paul's daughter). I've had too many just to pick one.

September 28, 2009 | Registered CommenterMonicaBielanko

I vote for Normal, I can relate and she has the most original writing!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChris

My vote is for Shelly over at Hairbows & Guitar Picks!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterI'm Just Being Me

My vote goes to Jen

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdebbiesue11

My vote is for Daredevil Caberet! I can see that happening to me!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTonya

I love gun stories! Daredevil Caberet all the way!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJoe

S'Dizzle for Shizzle

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterk

Tough one this month, with 3 or 4 really good ones. I think I'm going to vote for Kimberly though. Very tough decision though and thanks to everyone involved for giving me something to smile about today!

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDamien

My vote goes to Norma. It sounds like the kind of thing that would happen to my daughter.

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteranon

Tough, tough choice -- so many great posts! I'm gonna have to go with S'Dizzle on this one -- 13 is embarrassing enough; pissing yourself is embarrassing enough -- pissing yourself at 13 in front of your siblings -- blackmail fodder for decades I'm sure.
