Mrs. Linklater Doesn't Do Ties Without Whining About It

Remo and I tied for Most Outspoken. How did that happen?  The uber cop and the whiner mom. To quote the Screamer himself -- WTF?

What is it they say about ties, it's like kissing your sister? It's like the taste of steak and potatoes after you've put it in a blender. It's cold pizza and warm beer for breakfast. It sucks.

We ought to have something resembling sudden death to determine a winner when the vote is tied.  

Since Remo and I are deadlocked for Most Outspoken and he's a member of law enforcement, some kind of weaponry would seem to be called for.

Of course, he has Kevlar so we would need a gun that leaves marks, instead of holes. Like paintball. Kevlar can't stop bright yellow splats.  

But he's a sharpshooter on the range. And I've only won stuffed animals at amusement park shooting galleries. So let's not use conventional weapons to shoot at each other.

Let's use water balloons to throw at each other.  Fill them with kindergarten paint -- the kind kids use for those masterpieces we hang on our refrigerators.  And let the games begin.

The first one that gets paint on the front and back of the other will be declared the winner. Loser buys lunch. And relinquishes any claim to Most Outspoken.

How would you break the tie? And it will be broken.

I bet you thought I'd be all thank you everyone for your support.  Okay.  Okay. Thank you for your support.  But I want to know who didn't vote for me? Were you on the phone?  The toilet?  The rag?  What?  You thought someone else would do your voting for you?  Sheesh. Do I have to do everything?

I wanted you to win so bad...I love the way you lay it all out - no holds barred. There were several ties..and the only thing I can think it was a male/female type of thing.  Maybe they should of made a Most Outspoken award for a female and then a male? Anyway, YOUR journal is best.  Sandi

How bout we get you and remo in a chat room , throw in a list of both your pet hates , and let the 1 liners fly till someone runs out of breath ?
Congrats on the win Mrs L x

In the chat room last night, someone jokingly asked about possible ties.  I said something about the UFC fight on TV and someone else said that was it.....any ties would have to fight in the octagon.  Last one standing wins:)

You can take Finding Nemo, Winning Keno, or whatever the hell his name is:)


swibirun said...

Oh ya!  I almost forget.  Congratu  

(Sorry....I'm saving the other half ("lations!") for Remo)

j/ won it in my eyes!


nightmaremom said...

judithheartsong said...

and you have rage:):):) Congratulations Mrs. L....... I LOVE this place. judi

lv2trnscrb said...

congratulations; even if it was a tie :)


kristeenaelise said...

I voted for you!!!  I hate the ties too...maybe that's a suggestion for next year.  

Now...where do we pick up the graphic for anti-editors pick?  Hee!  (I think it should be someone mooning, but that's just my personal opinion)

As for tie-breakers, I'm thinking who's better looking (you, hands down), who's spunkier (you again) or who pisses me off least (yep, you) or maybe even who's taller (you guessed it!).  I should refrain - I'm biased.

hugs and congrats!
You still rock.
=) kris

somenuttychic said...

If there was any wonder whatsover as to why you were nominated for Most Outspoken, there won't be now. :-D

Go get 'em, Mrs L!  

somenuttychic said...

P.S. Congrats on your win!

Doan be blamin' me, missus, i wuz in the privy when dey done voted.

lamove04 said...

You do have a point about ties, and they always seem to be in the categories where there should be a clear Queen, I mean, winner.  Congratulations anyway, well-deserved!!! xxoo, Albert

robbush6 said...

I didn't vote. Not since Pattyboy kicked me and all the other private journals in the privates. Blame me. You Linklater's are always mad at the world. Sheesh. How 'bout we fling the tempra paint balloons at your sister, THEN kiss her?

psychfun said...

If you want to be most outspoken I would think words would be the way to go. I would think a sudden death on some topic. Have peole vote.

bluwave9 said...

I would so not want to meet up with you in a dark alley.  Even if you didn't bring your wolverine gloves (you will never live that picture down).  Do a blog-off. 72 hours of straight-up TOS-able posting.  It would be great fun for the rest of us.

You were the winner in my book.  Can I please have my lunch money back?

screaminremo303 said...

I'd say it equates roughly to spending an evening watching my dog lick his balls.

Smells about the same too.

floralilia said...



i so totally understand this.

congrats anyway to both of you.

gdireneoe said...

Sorry O Most Rant-e-ous On High...this was a tough one.  I've got an in with a bookie that's layin' odds...can't say what they are...but it includes you and Remo mudslingin' in a THERE'S a fight worth seeing!  I've put my money on you...Solid bet...except that I have a sneaking suspicion, although you could put him in the'd drag it out...make us sweat...'cause you like it like that...that and the fact that there is a certain hottie factor to Remo.  Hehe. Was hoping to see you there. ;)  C.

belfastcowboy75 said...

Robin is right. Since Pattboy excluded us privateers, we didn't vote. Two of your biggest fans, too. Blame him. I bet he'd be easy to hit with a paintball.

bedazzzled1 said...

To break the tie, how about you and Remo "accidentally" leave out some naked pictures of yourselves in your journals? (Yes, I'd look!) Then we'll vote after we decide who looks better in the buff. Uh for me.
