it's Monday.....

...which means back on the grind time. This weekend was mellow. Didn't do too much! Saturday night we went over to our neigbors to play Kino and have dinner had a blast. After about three watermelon martini's I thought I was playing BINGO....lol I think I might have even called bingo a few times. Friday was a bad day for me, really bad migraine, with nausea and dizziness.. REally bad! Sunday, I went to church with my parents. REally good service. Felt great when I left. So refreshing and renewed. I guess I needed a spiritual tune-up. LOL


Ok, so I went out this weekend and bought the infamous HALL OF FAME. Haven't read it yet, but plan to hit borders tommorrow, and sit and read for awhile, while the kids are at school. I also have to swing by Archivers and pick up Life Artist. But, getting back to the HOF, I am sure most of you have heard that Kristina Contes has been disqualified from the HALL OF FAME. Here are my thoughts: I feel so bad for Kristina Contes, I think she's the scapegoat for a lot of people. I feel that she was not the first person who has submitted someone else's pics to the Hall of Fame and won. Think about she never said "it was her pic" from jump. She credited the photo to Nisa Finn. She never took the credit. However, CK still allowed her in the contest. I think that she should have never allowed in the contest from jump, if they knew the pic was not her own. Now that everyone is in an uproar, the dq her. That sucks! Now they want people to go out and buy a special supplemental issue....are they nuts????? I won't be. I would much rather keep my issue with Kristina Contes in it! Because I love her work, I respect her as a fellow artist, and I think this all could have been handled much better and differently.

Interested in knowing how you all feel about this? Don't be shy. You don't have to agree with me, just want your input.

The whole CK thing was a mess. A big mess. And poorly handled by CK. Kristina on the other hand has been honest and forthright and has handled the result like a champ. At least she has kept her credibility and reputation. IMHO CK has not.

I hope your migraine free this week. I know how debilitating they can be.

I have not seen the issue and on the CK website, she is still in the HOF. But, really I don't have an opinion about this, is it really that BIG of deal?

The whole thing is a big mess. While I think Kristina broke the rules, I don't think she should have been trashed as badly as she has been. CK didn't handle this well at all. It is their responsibility to make sure all the rules were followed. But after the Stacey J/BPS situation I'm really not that surprised by their actions.

Sad that She had to take the hit for CK's mishandling of everything. They did it all wrong from the get-go.

Sorry about your migraines. I get them too and it's horrible. Hang in there!

By the way- I love your blog banner photo- the angle and "attitude" of it is awesome! Totally Rocks!

Hi, Dana, long time, huh? Ew, sorry 'bout that migraine. You are too dang funny yelling bingo during keno. OK, about KC: what she did was wrong but it was CK's responsibility to dq her at the get go. Other than that, I don't have a problem with her. I have a much bigger problem with CK and Primedia. And the whole pimping industry, ya know? Their customers are real women, not sheeple or mini-me-divas. Grrrr, you got me started, you ho (ROFLROFLROFL)

I'm thinking of making a blinkie that says "CK NOT OK" - LOL. If I do, do you want one? Leave me a comment on my blog if you do. And take carte, hope you stay migraine free.

Aimeslee xoxo

what a mess! but take a look at each and every cover of the mags- the pics are from professional photogs!! They are more or less a stock photo!! What does CK expect? They get what they show...
