Ladies and Jellybeans…beans…beans…!

Please give a warm welcome to our eight contestants.  They’ve come from all over the country (not really) to strut their stuff and show you, the judges, that they’ve got what it takes to be the Next My Blue Screen Epic Blog Header 2011!  Give it up!  Yay!

(Snacks and refreshments down at the bottom next to the polling booth and — hold on.  Oh, we’re looking for the owner of the green Chevy Cavalier, license plate L8RG8R…yes, sir.  Your lights are on.  You’re welcome.)

And yes, the rumors are true…for each vote cast, I will eat one Nutter Butter.  I got my fat pants on and a gallon of milk in the fridge.  I’m ready.


~ Contestant No. 1 ~

Sexy and not afraid to show it, Epic1 is in your face and proud of it.  “Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m about,” she sasses.  “Ain’t like I’m trying to hide nothing!”


~ Contestant No. 2~

Sensitive and mysterious, Epic2 enjoys walks through the woods and writes poetry about his carbon footprint.  He also loves kicking Rock Band ass on his PS3.


~ Contestant No. 3 ~

An artist in her own right, Epic3 directed the photographer on this shot to better highlight her gradient umbra.  “It’s just a matter of having good taste,” she explains.  She is also a huge Barbra Streisand fan.


~ Contestant No. 4 ~

Epic4 is a self-proclaimed neo hippie who believes that faith, sex, and rock and roll is what will save us from the aliens.  She lives in SoHo, commits accidental splatter abstract art (a subgenre she claims credit for), and works as an office manager at a small accounting firm.


~ Contestant No. 5 ~

Just as stunning and gorgeous as her redheaded twin sister, Epic5 lives in Hollywood, California.  She does drugs.


~ Contestant No. 6 ~

Epic6 teaches middle school language arts and is an avid Civil War Recreationalist.  He believes it’s important for folks to learn all three meanings of the word “epic.”  He also wanted us to let you know that he’s available to referee battlefield skirmishes, just in case you needed someone who can do that.


~ Contestant No. 7 ~

Shy and demure, Epic7 believes in leaving a little to the imagination.  She models long underwear and wool socks for a small clothing company in Anchorage, Alaska, and teaches tantric sex for beginners down at the “Y.”  She also makes a mean mac ‘n cheese.


~ Contestant No. 8 ~

Always the class clown, Epic8 is playful for the camera behind a swirl of honey.  He loves driving to random places, but admits he has a terrible sense of direction.  He has Darth Vader’s voice on his GPS.

    I’m surprised no one used a screen shot of the infamous Windows “Blue Screen of Death”.

    • mybluescreen says:

      I know! My Blue Screen actually refers to my word processor…sort of a throwback to the old WordPerfect, cuz I likes it blue! But it wasn’t until my husband tried to Google my blog title that I realized it probably wasn’t the best choice. Ah, well… 🙂 Mine’s the Blue Screen of Life!

        Ah, another WP user “classic mode” user. Unfortunately, I will have to give up WP when I make the move to a Mac. No more reveal codes. 🙁

    First off, awesome blog! Stumbled on to your blog via Freshly Pressed and I am here to stay. Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!

    Secondly I love how you played around with the tea and the epic definition. Very artsy you have a great eye.

    Last but not least, I voted for 7 but it was a very tough call between 7 and 3. In the end 7 won out because of the way the sunlight is playing through the glass and tea and the contrast of the shadows. Once again you have a great eye!

    • mybluescreen says:

      Where’d you go? I went to look for your blog and it’s gone! I hope you’re just revamping. Send me a link when you get re-situated. I hope all is well.

      Thank you very much for the kind comments. Very sweet of you. It’s nice to read why people are voting the way they are. I thought the blue one would get more attention, but then again, I probably shouldn’t have said she does drugs either. 😉

    i liked 8, maybe beacuase i liked the description. eight is the number of new beginnings …
    but three has always been ‘my’ number, and i like that pic too.

    • mybluescreen says:

      That’s funny. I pay attention to numbers too. The number 8 is considered lucky by many Asian cultures — the best dim sum restaurant in L.A. is called…wait for it…888…seriously. Thank you for casting your vote. That will be one Nutter Butter in honor of silverylizard!

    • mybluescreen says:

      Thanks, Betsy! BTW, enjoyed your About Page. That’s how I felt when I was setting mine up. Ended up just trying all the buttons…except, apparently, the one that gets rid of the “Just another WordPress weblog….” but thanks to ozarkamomma, it’s finally gone! Yay!

      Anyway, thank you for reading…and casting your vote. Put Betsy Berger down for one Nutter Butter! Nutter Butters for everyone!

    Epic 2! It looks like it is reflecting back so much of the outside world, which is the point of your blog/writing, right?

    Love it, and congrats on being freshly pressed!

    • mybluescreen says:

      Thank you so much! I’m kind of fond of the Epic2 pic myself. But now the temporary Nutter Butter header is growing on me too…which reminds me…a Nutter Butter for Aurian!

    • mybluescreen says:

      Thank you! I’m afraid I might have done Epic5 a little disservice by suggesting she takes drugs…but I did think she would get more votes with her wicked awesome blue do. 😉 Thank you for commenting! I will eat one Nutter Butter in your honor….(oh, man, the cookies are stacking up!)
