Fame

Well, apparently Blanche can hold her own in a beauty contest. Unbeknownst to me she went off and put herself out there with a bunch of other snowmen. She knew I probably wouldn't approve. But what is done is done. There's no going back now. In any case, one must strike while the iron is hot...or I guess before it gets hot, in the case of a snowman. A snowman's life is short so I admire her tenacity to seize the day and live life to the fullest. I just didn't know that a snowman's life could be so full. Apparently her dream was to see herself in glossy print, and now she's done just that and gone off there and put herself out there on the web too. At least she chose a respectable magazine: British Columbia Magazine. Check it out, and you will see what a busy girl she's been. I believe she's the third picture down. Rumour has it that she is now eying Broadway. I have my doubts about that one, but I must admit that I have yet to hear her sing and she has surprised me thus far. Who knew that a snowman's life could be so full?

Congratulations to Blanche for her moment of fame - I think the bikini may have influenced the judges ;)

Certainly she appears to have plans for the future and no doubt her roving eyes at the male models too.....

What ever the outcome, I just hope you have given her a good talking too .....

Carla said...

Peter, I will certainly pass on your congrats to Blanche. I'm sure that she will be thrilled that she's being noticed.

On another note...how can I get onto your blog? I tried recently and couldn't even get to the page.

pandave said...

that is so awesome! congratulations, carla! blanche is lovely and that bikini is so fashion forward.

you let me know if blanche makes it to broadway, i would love to see her perform.

Carla said...

Pandave, Thank you, thank you. Yes, Blanche really does have her own fashion sense. And don't you worry. If Blanche ends up making it to Broadway, I'll have a big shout out!

Peter said...

Sorry, Carla - a little glitch - should be okay now for you to pop over.....


Delighted Blanche is thrilled and quite rightly so - given her status in the Magazine...

VE said...

I don't see how you didn't get first..I mean she nailed the swimsuit competition!

The Fool said...

Now, isn't that "cool." Way to go, Nomad.

:)

Carla said...

Peter, Thanks for the info. I was starting to wonder what had happened to you. I'll pop over shortly.

VE, You know how judgmental people are these days. Not everyone likes Blanche's voluptuous figure. In fact, rumour has it that someone even dared to say that they thought Blanche was a little pudgy around the middle.

Carla said...

Fool, Thanks. It certainly was a feel good happy moment.

thailandchani said...

That's a really interesting picture! It never ceases to amaze me what people come up with. :)

coloursofdawn said...

Well, congratulations to both you and Blanche. What an honour. You both did good.

Peter said...

I think on a personal note - Blanche wins on any 'Baywatch' competition :)

Although if Pamela Anderson were to come knocking at my door, well .......

Carla said...

Chani, I'm glad you think so. Isn't the imagination a great thing?

Dawn, Thanks. I'll pass the message onto Blanch.

Carla said...

Peter, Oh please!!! Remember, Blanche is %100 real, unlike Pamela. Although I guess we all need our fantasies. Good luck with that one. And did you know? She's from BC...Pamela, I mean.

Cheryl said...

Too funny! Who knew that Blanche had such worldly aspirations?!

Carla said...

Cheryl, Yep, that Blanche is one wild gal. She certainly surprised me.

paris parfait said...

Well what a photogenic media star! Congrats to all those who worked tirelessly in the background to make it happen. :)

Carla said...

Paris Parfait, Yes, Blanche has quite an entourage...what with those who do her hair, apply her make up and make sure that she is just so. It was an effort to pull it all together, but everyone did a fabulous job.

rowena said...

Yay Blanche! You make me want to get out and start digging into that snow. About a meter at the top of the mountain and it's all fresh stuff! Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

Steffi said...

Congratulations, carla!That is so awesome.Blanche is lovely !

Carla said...

Rowena, It must be beautiful...providing you don't have to shovel the stuff. Make a friend for Blanche. She would be so thrilled.

Steffi, Thank you. I was pretty excited myself.

sirdar said...

Congrats to Blanche!! I am sure it was that modesty of wearing a bra that put her over the top. You know...you give a snow person a bit of fame and they take full advantage of it :-)

Carla said...

Sirdar, Thanks. Blanche certainly likes being in the limelight.

Pamela said...

the ice maiden does well in the cold cold world.

Carla said...

Pamela, Sometimes one must be a little cold to get ahead.

bohemiangirl said...

How amazing is that? Congrats! She was indeed one sexy snowlady.

Carla said...

Bohemian girl, It certainly was pretty funny. Surprised me.
