You Can’t Escape Your Destiny

Remember this? The I’ve seen few photos of myself I’ve hated more post?

Well, it gets better.

I’m one of those people who can run a stop sign in the middle of nowhere at 3 o’clock in the morning and get busted for it. I can’t get away with anything, ever, which is a good incentive to always follow the rules.

I did this stupid photo and then I hated it. And then, even though it’s on Flickr the photo wasn’t associated with my name so I figured it would be easy to forget.

But they’re having a contest and four fans get to be on a billboard. And they (whoever “they” are) narrowed it down to 100 finalists. And guess who made the final 100?

I know, amazing. I am the last person who wants any attention on herself and look what happens.

So you know what? Fark it. I own it. I am a Timbers fan and here is my badass photo:

There is no chance I will win and I don’t want to but since this photo refuses to die I’m afraid it’s going to be backwards day and the person with the least amount of votes, which I’m pretty sure is me at this point, is going to get on a billboard or painted on the side of the stadium or something else so I’m trying to cover myself.

If you’re on Facebook get your ass over there and like me: Timbers Contest.

Or maybe if that doesn’t work go to my page and there should be some links there. It’s called We Are Fans Portland Timbers Billboard Contest. I think you have to like the Timbers first and if you do that you’re probably going to want to hide them because they post a lot of stuff.

I don’t know what the moral of the story is but it’s in there somewhere.

UPDATE:To vote you need to “like” the Timbers first. Don’t you love how this social network stuff has us jumping through hoops like trained poodles?

    Totally voted for you. Can’t wait for the billboard.

    Also: hoping you never come at me with an axe. You are Serious Business in this photo.

    You really do look awesome in this photo. So bad ass and tough.

    My superpower of never getting away with anything has never been employed in the name of something so cool.

    I voted for you!!!!!

    I can’t find a way to “like” it. Maybe you have to be part of the group/fan page to vote? It says 29 people like it but doesn’t offer a way for me to like it. Clicking “like” on your post doesn’t seem to add to the number of “likes” on the official photo. Ack! I want to vote for your truly badass photo. You are so freaking serious with that axe, it is awesome.

    I can’t find a way to “like” it either! 🙁

    Wow. This is how I imagine Boudicca looked when she was chasing the Romans out of Londinium.

    I know I’ve seen you on the SyFy channel. Axes have an earthy primitiveness to them, so much more elegant in the slasher genre than a chainsaw. Sort of the way a lightsaber is more elegant than a blaster.
