Masters of the Universe

After some intense sisterly debate (arm wrestling included, of course) we have officially drafted an open letter to the Universe:

Dear Universe,

First and foremost, we love your work. I mean, our lives? Pretty awesome. Also we're really excited about the Madonna centric Glee episode tonight and something tells me we have you to thank for that. Well played.

Anywho, you might have heard rumors about us wanting to strike a deal in regards to forcing encouraging 1,000 people to follow our random little blog in 2010. I think even you can appreciate all of the round numbers at play here, right? It just feels right.

So, if you can arrange for us to score 1,000 Followers BEFORE January 1, 2011 we will record a little something we're referring to as the LiLa Olympics. It's sort of a cross between the Beer Olympics and a really budget beauty pageant. Here's how it's going to go down:
  • There will be four events including Talent, Evening Wear, Trivia and a Dance-off.
  • There will be a minimum of three judges, most of which will probably be related to us in some way, shape or form.
  • The entire competition will be recorded and posted on this blog for the entertainment of our loyal followers.
Universe, we feel this deal is more than fair. I mean, we're pretty much willing to humiliate ourselves in a quasi-public forum in exchange for people clicking a tiny little button on our blog. 

We anxiously await your reply.

Kisses,
L&L

P.S.
Thanks to 74 AMAZING blog readers we are donating all of these books to our local libraries. You guys rock!

Well, I'm certainly hoping the universe brings you 1,000 followers because I can't wait to see the LiLa Olympics!

Nisa said...

Awesome amount to donate! And that deal with the universe? Man, if I could follow you twice (or a hundred times), I so would!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I can't wait to see the LiLa Olympics. Who's the touch carrier? What are the acts for the opening and closing ceremonies? *rubs hands together in excitement* This is going to be so much fun. :D

Cheree said...

I'm sure with a letter like that the universe will answer. Good luck reaching the 1,000 followers mark.

Bethany Elizabeth said...

I think the Universe HAS to take up this deal, it sounds fantastic. If the Universe wants to spread joy (and I hope it does!) it will definitely allow those 1,000 followers to appear, because then, in one blog post, Lisa and Laura could make a thousand people happy! (Isn't that a really weird thought?)
Anyway, I'm super excited for you two, and I can't wait!

How 'bout another kindle?

Candyland said...

Oh man. This will be monumental.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Oh man, I can't wait for the Lila Olympics!

(Between you, me and the Universe, I think you'll hit 1,000 followers before January.)

Have a fab day!

Jill Wheeler said...

What a pretty pile of books! Me like!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

LiLa Olympics! Can't wait:)

Kristi Helvig said...

The universe won't let you down - especially when evening wear is involved.

That's awesome that you donated so many books - you guys rock! :)

Matthew Rush said...

Uh, yeah. This is going to be awesome!

I also predict you hit 1000 WELL before January. Heck, you may even have 2000 by then, we'll see.

Little Ms J said...

I. can't. wait.

mountie9 said...

As a Librarian (LT) I appreciate all the books you donated to your library! You did a really generous thing. Hoping you get the 1000 followers, because I would love to see the olympics

You guys are hilarious - thanks for the giggle

Simon C. Larter said...

The only way that vlog could get any better is if y'all did the Hour of Power beforehand. Y'know, like when you take a shot of beer every minute for an hour? Yeah. It's awesome (in a stumbling around stupidly kind of way). Hey, youse were the ones who mentioned Beer Olympics, right? Strange things happen in my brain when you mention beer. I can't be held responsible.

And, er... no swimsuit segment? Uh, delete that. DELETE THAT. Why won't blogger accept del tags in comments?

*grumble*

Marsha Sigman said...

This is awesome! An olympic event covers it all.

Its all about discovery, the only reason you don't have thousands of followers already is just a matter of them finding you. What is not to love???

HMMM... what would your talents be, I wonder? So freaking awesome!!

Natalie said...

That sounds fantastic. Only 379 people to go! That's very achievable.

Carolyn V. said...

Wow, look at all those books! Cool!Way to go LiLa!

Go Universe! 1000 is just around the corner! =)

Summer said...

Sounds like a great Deal with the Universe to me! I look forward to the LiLympics.

Steena Holmes said...

Dear Master of the Universe please listen to Lisa & Laura's plea. Only you, so benevolent and kind could find those 300+ followers that still need to discover these girls, bring them forth - NOW ;)

Tere Kirkland said...

Sweet.

I know y'all can do it!

Melissa said...

You have no clue how badly I wanted to see your olympics hahahaha

Oh, and by the way, I'm just dying to see the Madonna Glee eppie, too! :)

Icy Roses said...

YES, dance-off! I'm super excited.

Also, you guys are awesome for donating so many books to your library.

JEM said...

I might be willing to do borderline illegal things for a dance-off.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

1,000 by 1/1/11?? NO PROBLEM! You guys will reach that number long before the end of the year. And I can't wait to see your Olympics! LOL! :-)

Laura Marcella said...

Awesome! Hope you reach 1,000 followers soon. Do your stuff, Universe!

It's also a wonderful thing you're doing supporting libraries!

Dawn Simon said...

I hope you reach 1,000 soon! We can't wait for the LiLa Olympics! And awesome that you donated so many books.

Shannon said...

As a new follower, I will do my part to promote your blog. Not only do I enjoy reading it, but now I have the LiLa Olympics to look forward to.

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

Lila olympics sounds great! I can't wait for tonight's glee episode either!

Stephanie Thornton said...

The LiLa Olympics sound great! Will the Dance-Off be done in your evening wear?

Even more exciting is that stack of books going to your library. That's fantabulous!

Krispy said...

Your deal with the Universe is EPIC. How could it refuse? ;)

Yay library books!

OfficeGirl said...

With all the arm wrestling going on at your place I think its safe to say the universe owes you big time!
Good luck on the followers, though I think you will have no problem reaching that goal. You guys are freakin' awesome!

PJ Hoover said...

What a great donation of books! And I'm cheering you on to 1000 followers! Go Lisa and Laura!

Talli Roland said...

How cool that you guys can donate all those books! Good luck on the followers - I'm sure you can do it!

E. Elle said...

Ooh, let's hope the universe accepts your challenge. Sounds very entertaining!

Jill Kemerer said...

Can we have a dance off even if the number only climbs to 999? Please?? :)

Ann Marie Wraight said...

You'll reach the 1000 mark well before the end of summer and there'll be another competition by 2011...I just KNOW it!!!

The library book donation was an EXCELLENT thing to do...you have many credits with the UNIVERSE - you'll see LADIES!

Jen said...

Wow that's amazing regarding the books!!! What awesome bloggers there are!!!

Your contest sounds brilliant, I think it has enough spunk and edge to go all the way! I'll be sure to give you a nice little shout out to help you further along for your goal of 1,000 followers! God speed ahead my friends!

Dara said...

I sure hope the 1K happens! You still have a good many months of the year and you're already over 600. I think you can do it :)

Elana Johnson said...

2011 isn't going to know what hit it. 1000, here you come!

And wow -- amazing how many books you're donating. You guys rock!

Dork Vader said...

Heee ^_^
one of those books is from me! Sort of... :D
And Lila Olympics? 8D
I CANNOT wait for this!
Get your friends to follow people, NOW!

Heidi Willis said...

I wish I could follow more than once! January is a long way away to wait for this kind of entertainment!

That's an awesome stack of books! I even see a few of my favorites in there. Great job!

Robin said...

You can do it!!!

And yeah, GLEE + Madonna? Slice of heaven.

:-)

Sara B. Larson said...

Way to go on all those books to donate! Woot!

I can't wait to see you compete in those events. Because you know you're going to hit 1,000 followers. ;-)

Lola Sharp said...

I'm going to be bold by predicting that you will hit the grand mark well before 4th of July. Maybe even before Memorial Day.

I think you should incorporate bedazzled berets to your evening wear ensembles.

Big Pimping: I already have you on my blog roll, and I'll add you to my contest sidebar. I'll be sure to pimp about it in a post next week.

~Lola

Jemi Fraser said...

I'd be shocked if you 2 didn't make the 1000. You bring such fun to the bloggy-verse. Good luck - I'm sure the universe is listening :)

jessjordan said...

Okay, this is Awe. Some. I cannot wait to see this. We must make it happen. Must.

When I'm less exhausted and (hopefully) more coherent, I promise to assist via a blog post or 2 or 7.

BTW: Did I miss some sort of "donate to the library" post. B/c woops ... My bad!

(psst: how about you slip me that John Green book? No one will know ...)

Vampires and Tofu said...

The books you are donating to the library?? Yeah, that's awesome. LOVE THAT!

Julia Smith said...

Just clicked the little buttony thingy. Go, Lisa and Laura! Go!

Amy Jo Lavin said...

Yay, Glee! I'm so glad it's back (and wasn't that Vogue music video awesome?)!

Melissa Sarno said...

I can't wait for you to strike this deal! I think ones of your talents should also be Madonna-centric.

SonshineMusic i.e. Rebecca T. said...

I think it's safe to say you ought to start preparing for the events now. :) *bounces up and down expectedly*

Stephen Tremp said...

I donate my books to the library all the time. Why let them collect dust n a shelf no one will ever see. Pass it on. Let someone else enjoy the book. That's my philosophy.

Myrna Foster said...

I bet you gals will reach 1,000 by the end of summer. Your olympics sound like too much fun. I still think the Sumo suit would have been cool.

India Drummond said...

First time here... love the blog!

From what I've seen so far, I've no doubt you'll make it.

Kim said...

74 books!??! That's AWESOME!

And, hey, what did you think about the Madonna Glee epi? I was kind of not in love. :(

ASBLACKASOBAMA said...

Wait a minute.... No swimsuit competition? lol
