Put your money where your mouth is

Do you want to be able to stare at that -----------------------------> mug for an entire month next year? Well, here's your chance.

Somebody, and I'm not sure yet if I ought to thank this person or have them hunted by ninjas, submitted my name for the Hottest Blogger Calendar.

You can vote for me here. Scroll down the list until you see "Backpacking Dad". Ignore all of the other names.

I would be lying if I said it wouldn't be cool to be included in this thing. And I'm all about the cool. Check out my cargo shorts and 18 different grey t-shirts.

I would be lying if I said I had a shot.

But Wil freaking Wheaton is on the list and my wife already loves him more than she does me, and he tried to steal my baby. So at the very least I'd like to be able to say that I received more votes than he did (even if he doesn't know about this calendar and isn't shamelessly plugging himself for it).

So, help me win back both my wife's love and my daughter from Wil Wheaton. What are you, a baby hater?

I'm delurking to whimper: but, he's Wesley Crusher!

Xbox4NappyRash said...

Didn't he have leeches nomming on his whatsits in stand by me? (or what that another dude?)

Either way, that IS pretty calender worthy...

Wendy said...

I voted for you...

Perez Hilton is on there. WTF is he doing on there? Seriously!

Samurai Beetle said...

you got my vote! strange that the guy with the most votes is not hot

for a different kind of girl said...

What do you think the chances are Wil Wheaton would wear a grey t-shirt? What about if I asked him to? I have to think about this a minute.

I hope you didn't call me charming recently as a means of swaying my vote to you, because that would really ruin what I perceived to be a special moment between us, a moment, it should be noted, that totally clinched my vote (sorry, Wil!).

Assertagirl said...

I've stayed far, far away from this hot blogger calendar thingy but if it means helping you kick Wil Wheaton's ass, I'm all over it (and I do love me some nerdly Wil Wheaton types).

Ali said...

11 people have voted for me.
this contest is obviously faulty. hahaha.

i may have to make my own calendar that will include people who are actually, um, you know, hot.

you can be on that one. ;)

Will said...

You shot yourself in the foot merely mentioning Wil Wheaton, Mr. Burns. He's even more dreamy than you are. I'm going to go do my part right now.

patty said...

Is it safe to assume the Blogger Slam Book is next?

MadWoman said...

I never liked Wesley Crusher, so given that ... and only that I swear! vote goes to you.

You've got some interesting competition up there dude!

slouching mom said...

you got my vote.

The Flirty Girl said...

Voted for you :o)

Have no idea who WW is. Will have to have to find out later. Time to work now :P

butterflygirl said...

Longtime lurker here just commenting to let you know you got my vote. Although I have to say when I saw that list and Jamie Oliver was there..... well ya still got me vote anyway!

Considering the last time I thought Wil Wheaton was cute was in 1989 when I saw Stand By Me for the first time, I think you can have my vote. What the hell? No big deal. :)

TentCamper said...

sorry.....Gotta vote for myself. I know it's wrong....but you know me.

moosh in indy. said...

At least my vote didn't go to him, right?

Redneck Mommy said...

Look at you, selling out to appease the masses.

I don't know if I would consider you the hottest blogger out there...but I absolutely would vote for you if the contest were for Prettiest bloggers.

Cuz I've never seen a prettier dude in my life.


Good luck with your campaign. If you win, will you pose in a gold lame thong for your adoring fans?

Aunt Becky said...

Happily voted for you.

Anonymous said...

I already voted for you, but seriously, Will Wheaton? I love you BD, but Wesley Crusher still blows my skirt up any day.

caramama said...

There you go, cutie! I've cast my vote for you. Even over Wil Wheaton! I did it for Erin really. ;-)

BusyDad said...

Dude you did in 1 day what took me like 4 days to achieve. I may have to pass the token dad blogger on the calendar slot to you!

Kristen said...

I will vote for you...Not that I don't respect him, but I do not get what the fuss is over Wil Wheaton. Is he hot? I think my libido burned out along with the birth of my third kid, because I just can't tell.

Backpacking Dad said...

zoeyjane: baby hater!

xbox4nappyrash: Yes, yes he did. And who needs to see that? Again?

wendy: I don't know what a Perez is.

samurai beetle: the Curmudgeon? Yeah, I don't quite understand that one. Not that his blog isn't awesome, because it is, but who is doing the pimping for him?

FADKOG: your unwavering (well, I suppose it wavered for a second there; I don't think he owns any grey t-shirts) loyalty is truly touching.

assertagirl: yah! no more Swiss neutrality!

ali: that's because you didn't pimp yourself out in a shameless bid for attention and an excuse to go to New York.

will: dammit.

patty: I don't know what that is. Is it a book filled with pictures of bloggers doing open-mic poetry? Slam-dancing? Playing tennis?

madwoman: what do you mean "only that"? That you wouldn't vote for me if I weren't trying to crush Wil Wheaton?

slouching mom: sweet. thank you.

the flirty girl: dude from Stand By Me and Star Trek. Geek blogging demi-god.

butterflygirl: thank god he's way down at the bottom. I am kicking his ass right now.

tracy: excellent

tentcamper: If I lose by one vote I'm coming for your head.

moosh in indy: I can't believe you. Traitor.

redneck mommy: pretty=hot. So I'll just assume you called me hot.

aunt becky: happily accepted! ;}

fear and parenting: Hey! No loving words about the baby-stealing Wil Wheaton here.

jennster: It was your peer pressure that made me write this blatant grab for attention. I blame you for my sellout. And when I win I'll blame you for all of my fame and riches. But not share them.

caramama: and Erin appreciates your vote!

busydad: it's not over till the fat blogger sings, and I haven't started warming up my pipes.

kristen: No. He is not hot (do not listen to anything my wife says). Not in any way. But right now I'm just grateful he hasn't noticed the contest and pimped himself out, crushing everyone else.

i will so vote for you. can i vote for myself? ha! oh, i make myself giggle!

ms. changes pants while driving said...

i voted for you on accident!!!!

i was probably going to end up voting for you anyway. but i hadn't gotten to the end of the list yet and saw your name. so i clicked on it to save my spot, thinking that there would be a "vote" button at the end.

there WASN'T! and i thought there would be pictures! or at least links to see pictures.

whoa, is The Comics Curmudgeon sleeping with all of blogdom? where's my piece?
