Please, Help A Sister Out!

Internet, please help me. I’ve not asked much of you in the past. There will those who say that I’ve asked for soap nuts, jars of pickles and a thumbs up statue, and those people would be correct. But you know what? None of those things have panned out for me so far so I’ve now cast them off as trivial and unimportant.

So internet, today I come to you and your readers and throw myself at your mercy to beg, pitifully, for one last thing. I want to snag a local gig as the official blogger for Sego Lily Day Spa, a fabulous local spa that I LOVE.

Tomorrow, Thursday, I’m posting my entry for the competition here on Steenky Bee. I would be forever in you’re your debt if tomorrow you would leave me lots of love notes here AND over at Sego Lily’s web site. (I'll put up the link.) I know it requires double clicking and actually visiting an extra site, but, trust me, it will definitely be worth it. For me.

Here’s the competition deets: The contest wraps up on April 25th. On that day the folks at Sego Lily review all the entries, take into account the comments and narrow the field down to the top five submissions. Those lucky five are treated to luxurious spa treatments and must blog about it. (I know! Right?) It sounds ridiculously tough, but I promise I'm not doing it for the fame or free full-body sugar rub. Well, maybe I'm doing it for the free sugar rub.

The top five bloggers are then judged once more and eventually a winner is crowned, but let's not worry about that just yet. My short-term goal is that full body sugar rub, remember?

Internet, I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this possibility. I haven’t been this pumped about something since I discovered Cotton Candy flavored Pop Rocks on Monday. Seriously, I knocked a couple of rowdy middle school kids crowding the candy aisle at the convenience store to get the last of the packets. Don't worry, it was only a pack of Emo kids. I mean, what were they going to do to me? Track me down on their skateboards? I don't think so.

I hope (beg and plead) that I see you all back here tomorrow!

Your wish is my command, oh great Steenker.

Becky said...

All sorts of spelling errors above...I couldn't take it.


I don't know....I mean, what's in it for us? I say, if you win you have to live webcast the sugar rub (not in a perverted way, more of an embarrassing way). The steenkster laying their awkwardly being twisted like a pretzel by Helga, the 300 pound Swedish masseuse. Deal?

Jenni said...

No problem. Wait, what's in it for me? Nothing? Then forget it.

I kid, I kid. I will be here, of the course.

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

I'll be back tomorrow and clicking away. Anything for the Steenky Bee!

HeatherPride said...

This is some kind of presser, Steenkers. So not only are you going to be judged on your writing, but also the quality and content of your comments?? Do you have any idea what you're doing to all of us???? DO YOU????

I expect something in return, SB. Oh yes, nothing in this life is for free. You just wait till Chicago, sister.

HeatherPride said...

Look at me, I was so worked up I couldn't even spell "pressure" right.

Did I spell it right that time? Now that I look at it it still looks wrong.

Yaya said...

Oh that sounds like a fun job!!!! I'll be back tomorrow!

Ms. Salti said...

I will sooo be here for you!

Carolyn...Online said...

I mean wouldn't a spa want a blogger named Steenky?

Robin said...

You got it, sister. Anything to help a girl get free spa treatments!

Miss Grace said...

I'll be back tomorrow. Because I heart you.

CK Lunchbox said...

I would be wrong not to help out!

Jenni Jiggety said...

ABSOLUTELY!

Mama Dawg said...

I'll be here with bells on. And then I'll shake my maracas on over to the other site.

Sherendipity said...

I would like to be rubbed with sugar. And honey. And cherry sauce, and chocolate.
....prime rib....
bananas... day old bread...
easter ham...

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

We've got your back. Lord knows a sista gotta get her rub on. You tell me where and I'll tell them why. Perhaps the stresses of a dead cockroach in an amusement park public toilet are enough. It would certainly win my vote if I were judging.

Game on!

Tara@Sticky Fingers said...

Am there for you.
Will need to see photographic proof of said scrub should you win though . . .

Reinvent Dad said...

I'll be back tomorrow Steenky Bee! I enjoy your posts.

blissfully caffeinated said...

I would literally kill someone for that gig. (No one special. Maybe Gary Coleman. No one would miss him, right?)

I will comment 85,000 times if it will help you out, my sister.

Keely said...

Oh holy crap. You can get a job as a blogger for a SPA? I'm totally voting for you because then karma will OBVIOUSLY present me with the same opportunity. That's just the way she works, even if she is a bit of a bitch.

Captain Dumbass said...

Do they rub it on your tongue too? And cotton candy pop rocks? I can't even find pop rocks let alone flavoured ones. How long would it take me to drive to Utah?

Now I remember why I was looking for pop rocks. Supreme Leader has never had any. When she told me I looked at her like she was a freak but she started going on about south east Asian and refugee camps and blah blah blah. Whatever, freak.

Rebekah said...

If this means you post more - in fact TWICE as much, I've got your back. Also I'd send you pickes in the shape of a thumbs-up statue. But if those Sego Day Spa people think you'll be all sugar rub this and toenail-polish that, and will loose your essential STEENK, well, that's some sparific crapitude. (I wanted to combine the words spa and crap, but Spap didn't quite work out).

Tuesday Girl said...

Sure will my love. My goal is getting your sugar rubbed.

I mean it.

Rebekah said...

wait. Don't use that. SPAP shouldn't be something we say to get you that job, I'm thinking. Spalation. (Spa+elation - geddit?) or...spawesome! That's the one! You'd be TOTALLY SUGAR SPAWESOME!

Lisa Brandos said...

I will be back here tomorrow to tell the world what a fantastically well-written submission you gave if you would be ever so generous and head on over to my blog at http://lisabrandosathome.blogspot.com and follow me back.

Sorry to whore myself out like this... but I'm doing a giveaway tomorrow and I don't have that many followers yet.

Jamie said...

I must follow all order from the master Steenky - I will be there -
The last some one didn't listen I heard you just keep shouting ... "It puts the lotion on or it gets the hose" Momma don't want no hose so I am in.

Sammanthia said...

You've got my vote but only if you promise to give me a packet of pop rocks.
Good luck!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Mwah! For you, anything!

Jamie said...

After I left my comment I started to think about this salon -
Get this... I have been there and we get my g-ma gift certificates for there. Small world huh? This is great now I know where to stalk you next time I venture out to Utah.

jen said...

anything for you dear.
and ...
i don't know.
this is the sucky part about free airline. i'm at the whim of the flights. and it would be a short friday to sunday trip ... and ugh ...
i don't know.
two toddlers ... flying standby on crowded planes. eek.
ok ... i exaggerate ... one toddler and one 5 year old.
not sure yet. i'm trying ... but it's not looking good. however ... i am definitely coming out this june (when there isn't that silly work thing to deal with). so if nothing else ... and you still like me ... we are TOTALLY on for june. k?

Ann said...

Oh, this is going to be good. We love you and we'll make sure you get this gig. :->

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I'll be back. Sounds like a great gig.

Casey said...

Since I couldn't give you a physical thumbs up, I will send you a thumbs up in spirit. I'll be back and there had better be Pop Rocks.

Pamela said...

Good Lord. With all that linkage in the first paragraph, I'm sort of required to leave you a hot and steamy love note tomorrow.

I will SO whore you out for a sugar rub.

Wicked Step Mom said...

What is in it for us? ;)

I've been lurking for months, and the contest pushed me over the edge. You've got my vote.
