Yes, friends, it's time for that annual* tradition, the Ms. Sarah M. Anderson Beauty Contest! Welcome to the first round of judging. I'm your host, Burt Hasselhoff. We have a lot of lovely Sarah M. Andersons with us today. The judges** have their work cut out for them! Let's give all the Sarahs a round of applause!
**(that would be you, loyal reader(s))
Well, let's get started! First up, we have Thoughtful, yet Serious Sarah:
She's thoughtful, but serious! Next up, we have Great Cleavage Sarah:
I think I speak for a lot of our viewers when I saw, Wow, what great cleavage! Next, we have Gentle Breeze Sarah.
Isn't it amazing what a little wind can do for a gal? Now please give a warm welcome to Seriously Demure Sarah!
Yes, much more demure than thoughtful! For a change of pace, how about Good-Time Girl Sarah?
Yes, Good Time Girl Sarah looks like she know how to have some fun! Now let's welcome Sunny Day Sarah.
She's going to miss that sun this winter, folks! Now give a big hand to Serious Cowgirl Sarah.
She's serious about being a cowgirl, don't you think? So is Tree Girl Sarah.
Tree Girl Sarah is an early crowd favorite, but so is Sitting Pretty Sarah!
What a sweetheart. Now take a gander at Bug Bite Sarah.
Yes, you'd never know it to look at this Sarah, but she was being attacked by ants not happy about sharing the tree with her. Now welcome Sweet Sarah to the stage.
She's an early contender for Ms. Congeniality.
Ladies and Gentlemen, another round of applause for all of our lovely Sarah M. Andersons! Judges**, please keep the rules in mind:
1. Keep it positive. Negative comments will be deleted.
2. All Sarahs can be made color, black and white, sepia, or washed tones. Do not let any Sarah's current coloring affect your opinions.
3. Remember, this is for an Official Author Picture, which you, loyal reader(s), will have to look up in the corner of this blog, on Facebook, on the Sarah M. Anderson website, and, good Lord willing, on book covers (hopefully sometime soon). Keep these mediums in mind when choosing.
4. Judges may choose up to their top three contenders to return for Round Two next week.
So tune in next week to see which Sarah made the cut, and which Sarah was just cut! I'm Burt Hasselhoff, signing off for the Ms. Sarah M. Anderson Beauty Contest. Until next week, judges! *waves to audience*
