So, Check out her contest HERE! You still have like 3 hours if you are on CST:)
I chose to go with option #1 which states:
"If you are a runner and a blogger then you know who SUAR is. Who doesn't? And if you are a runner and not familiar with blogs, you really should go check out SUAR's blog. SUAR = Shut Up And Run. Google it if you are curious and not familiar with the blog world. As most of you know, SUAR's blog is never dull. Anything but. Shocking at times, funny, raunchy maybe, inspiring, etc. She's quite the character and so she makes a great candidate for this art project. Your job is to create a piece of art (picture, sculpture, comic strip, diorama, etc) that represents Beth from SUAR. Maybe it is a scene from a story she has told...pooping, farting, wearing her green bikini or one of the many many images you might have in your head. She's told some great stories so even if you don't know of SUAR's blog, it would be easy to go to, read for a few minutes and come away with an awesome idea for this creation.
So, I first met Beth "virtually" back in October when we were somewhat brought together after both having had a very similar debilitating injury. I was back to running by this point and she had just been diagnosed. We yapped a little back and forth about coping and recovery and at one point the discussion came up about how in the world you were even supposed to carry a
She wrote THIS POST and posted THIS QUICK VIDEO shortly after that conversation which made me laugh as most ALL her posts and videos do!
So, tonight my plan was to recreate Beth as CLOSE to her likeness as possible rolling around in her computer chair in her kitchen with a broken hip.
I came up with This
Now, I'm pretty sure even though Beth hasn't posted any pictures, that she has a pair of these denim hottie shorts in her closet:) Not sure about the pink furry phone but I just thought it added a nice touch. And although I looked HARD through the box of Barbies under the stairs, I could find NO Barbie sized wine bottle so coffee it is....(For the record Mattel, if you're going to give her double D's and a 12 inch waist, at least give her a bottle so Ken can take advantage of her.....)
Also, Beth, I am apologizing now as I see even though I only gave you coffee, you somehow put your shoes on backwards. Understandable.
So simple-yes, fun-yes. Was that the point. YES:)
And if there happens to be ANYONE out there in blogland who hasn't read Beth's blog but for some GOD forsaken reason reads mine, let me add she returned from this injury and has since completed MANY MANY races including the Boston marathon and a HIM!!! Seriously impressive!
So thanks Amanda! I definitely smiled hanging out with my kids tonight making a mess!!
