Hello all and Happy Friday.
Today’s Ugly Poodle Friday has a bit of a twist. I was featured on the blog Chick Lit Central yesterday, which was awesome. They are running a giveaway of my book (open until April 16 at midnight if you want to enter!) and one of their suggestions was to post a picture of an ugly poodle to enter. BRILLIANT.
OK look at these little powder-puffs. I think these correctly embody all that is the dyed poodle – classic, pink, not to gigantic. I actually approve of these little creatures – don’t tell.
This poodle looks like a combination of a dead rooster and a bacon and egg breakfast gone bad. Like … what? I actually featured this in my early ugly-poodle posting days, it is nice to see it resurface. Also, are those french fries sticking out of its legs?
This guy is actually pretty dang cute as well. I mean … that smile! How is that a thing. And those glasses just add to the tacky goodness. Although, I do wish the owner had put a pair of pants on this guy – gross. (idontwanttoseeyourpoodlejunk)
Skittles. These dogs make me want Skittles. NOW.
And there is this little blueberry to wrap things up. Delightful.
Anyway, it was fun having readers submit these. If you ever want to send a poodle my way, please do! I would love to see what you can scrounge up on the interwebs.
And finally, I would like to conclude today with a SPECIAL TREAT. I came across a French bulldog instagram account today that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. To erase all terrifying poodle images from your brain, please feel free to pursue this little guy’s pics. Because they are way. too. cute.
YOU ARE WELCOME.
So my thespian husband and I were Googling for today’s ugly poodle of choice, and we noticed something:
THERE ARE A LOT OF HUMAN BEINGS ON THE INTERWEBS WITH REALLY UGLY HAIRCUTS.
This atrocity is not just limited to La Poodles.
So, here are a few hot messes for your viewing pleasure that we came across.
This guy – I can’t even take it. HE IS PERFECTION.
I have been thinking about getting my hairs ‘did. I should bring in this photo as an example. “I will take one 90′s socialite girlfriend with a side of poodle connected to my face please.” I am am sure they can do that down at Austin’s famed Robots & Hearts Salon.
And then there is just this guy. I know we all went through our awkward teenage state… but this…this just can’t even be commented on. #ew #ew.
For more of this human-hair goodness, check out this creepy link I found.
Um, wow. Eyebrows. Those are some SERIOUS eyebrows. I kinda like them…
Also, were those wings photoshopped on later? Or are they actually attached?
Either way, this fire-breathing little guy is TERRIFYING. But probably also quite cuddly and a lovely companion, once you get the devil-red hair dye washed off and get him down from this cardboard castle!
Happy Ugly Poodle Friday folks!
HAPPY PUB DATE TO MY DEAR LITTLE BOOK.
It has been a long, strange, terrifying and exhilarating journey, one I could not have done without the help and support of a cluster of humans. (Kyle, Shelby J, Shelby S, Andrea, Rusty, Allison — ok basically everyone at Shelton Interactive, Christy McFerren, my editor Samantha March and all the other people in my life who provide inspiration and encouragement).
I am so glad I jumped on the indie publishing train – it is amazing to be able to take control of every aspect of your work, share your voice with the world and take control of your dreams. Overwhelming at times, but in the end – worth it!
Anyway – if you haven’t checked out La Book out quite yet, now is an opportune time! You can find it on Amazon. Soon, near the end of the month it will be available on B&N.com, Apple iBooks, and much more.
Earlier this week, I was able to celebrate life, my book and my birthday with some AMAZING friends + one husband in Seattle. We stayed at The Alexis Hotel, which is incredible! Look what they set up in our room before we arrived:
Amazing! also, I was able to drop off a few copies of my book to have them put in their author suite. Whatttt an honor!
Anyway, just wanted to give The Alexis a well deserved shout out.
AND FINALLY, I must ask – is there something in your life that you have been wanting to finish, accomplish or achieve, but have been holding back because of fear + doubt + laziness? If so, here is my gentle kick in the rear to go for it. Life is short, juicy and such a beautiful gift from God – I hope you savor every day.
This is not a poodle.
It is a LLAMA.
Ohhhh man! This poodle is an African safari delight. I went to Africa once, so you can trust me at this poodle haircut’s accurate depiction of the native wildlife.
The only thing that could improve this style is if they somehow incorporated a hippo into the mix. Step up your game, people!
Happy Friday, happy March!
You survived the week! Congratulations. For that, I award you with this. This picture is actually not ugly at all, rather pretty adorable. Do you think that there is actually a Bob Marley themed poodle haircut in Japan? If so, I will buy a plane ticket right now to witness this. (I played Bob Marley in my wedding ceremony, fyi. Do I regret it? A little…)
Also, what would you do if you one day realized that you were “big in Japan?” That is actually a thing – I saw this news story about a guy from Florida who one day realized a photo of his baby was plastered all over Japan. Super bizarre! But the baby is pretty adorable, so it is understandable. He just looks so….happy. Japan needs that happiness.
Have a great weekend people!
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
I love this quote, written by Ben Franklin, known for his inventions, wise words and hot hairstyle. Seriously though, what was with that hair?
If you are actually a fan of the bald on top, long in back, get excited! It can now be easily replicated, without having to take any drastic hair-shaving actions.
This manikin appears to be quite gender neutral, so this wig clearly can be worn on both men and women.
Ah! The photos get better. Multi-angles, and gasp -is that pink lipstick?
I need one of these wigs.
Happy Monday world.
Greetings, humans. Welcome to Friday, one of the grandest days of all the seven days. I specifically like Friday for a handful of reasons. One, it is breakfast taco Friday at my place of employment. Two, it is ugly poodle Friday, and everybody loves looking at a hot mess with four legs, so let’s let it rip!
Today’s ugly poodle is particularly wonderful, as it is space alien themed, complete with a antenna-weilding owner. The truth is out there. Enjoy.
So…this music video VALIDATES ME. It validates me for having ALL my apartment furniture purchased from a thrift store. (Ok mostly all. Some is from the dumpster, some Ikea. I am not joking) AND it validates my wonderful MOM for buying her clothes at Goodwill…when she doesn’t have to. SHE JUST WANTS TO. Chick knows whats up.
Enjoy.Enjoy this treat. Also, sporadically plug your ears if you don’t like swear words.
