Father's Day Roxiticus Rerun: Do Ya Think I'm Sexy (C'mon Sugar Let Me Know)

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there! The Roxiticus Desperate Family is quite busy today giving Rex the Father's Day he deserves in Bay Head, New Jersey, so I thought I'd leave you with a Roxiticus Rerun and a bit of shameless self-promotion. Since the original post, six (6) of you have voted for me as the Hottest Mommy Blogger in IZEA's Blogger's Choice Awards. I've been self-promoting for a day or two on SocialSpark, and thanks to Moomette, SpicyBug, DNewMe, Lady Java (whose cat blog is up for the Best Animal Blog Award -- ah, ah, ahhhhhchooo!), and Mariuca (Best Blog of All Time, baby!), I'm only about 270 votes behind Dooce! And good news for those of you who think more than one mommy blogger is hot, hot, hot... You can cast more than one vote! And, just in time for Father's Day, there's a hottest daddy blogger award, too!

Sunday update at 3:30pm: Thunderstorms in Bay Head have driven us in to our screened-in porch, bloggin' while the rain pours down around us. Up to 7 votes for Hottest Mommy Blogger thanks to Siani, who "just voted...because your shameless self-promotion was so nicely done."

Sunday update at 11:30pm: Tricia (Best Blog of All Time, baby!) stopped by to vote, but (see comments below) warns that I may be disappointed when I step up to accept my Golden Booty for Hottest Mommy Blogger: "I was at the Bloggers Choice Awards last year and it was a joke. They just put up a screen and scrolled the winners. Ted knocked down and broke a few of the awards when he backed up into them too! Hopefully this years awards is more of an actual presentation or something."

For those of you who are hoping to hear more about Rex's Father's Day, you'll have to come back tomorrow. We had a delicious dinner (including Rex's son, PostBoy and his newly minted fiancee, MathGirl) at the Mahogany Grille in Manasquan, New Jersey, but after driving back to the Roxiticus Valley I'm just about ready for bed. Sweet dreams while we all sing along with Sexy Rod...


She sits alone, waiting for suggestions
He's so nervous, avoiding all her questions
His lips are dry, her heart is gently pounding
Don't you just know exactly what they're thinking?

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so

He's acting shy, looking for an answer
Come on, honey, let's spend the night together
Now hold on a minute before we go much further
Give me a dime so I can phone my mother
They catch a cab to his high rise apartment
At last he can tell her exactly what his heart meant

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so

His heart's beating like a drum
'Cause at last he's got this girl home
Relax, baby, now we are alone

[break]

They wake at dawn 'cause all the birds are singing
Two total strangers but that ain't what they're thinking
Outside it's cold, misty and it's raining
They got each other, neither one's complaining
He say's I'm sorry but I'm out of milk and coffee
Never mind, sugar, we can watch the early movie

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so
Tell me so, baby


-- Rod Stewart, "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?"

My loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers know that I sign up for everything IZEA: PayPerPost, SocialSpark, Zookoda...now I'm thinking about signing up for the Blogger's Choice Awards, but I couldn't find a category that seemed to fit this blog. The award categories include Best Animal Blogger (oldest daughter allergic to pets), Best Blog of All Time (my ego's not quite that big), Most Obnoxious Blogger (hey, my mom taught me, "if you don't have anything nice to say, best not to say anything at all"), Best Humor Blog (I'm not that funny all the time)...


Then I came across "Hottest Mommy Blogger" and wondered if enough of ya think I'm sexy. I'm afraid I may be a bit late to the game, and Dooce may be running away with the prize, but I also know I can count on my loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers...come on, sugar let me know.

Voted for Ya. I was at the Bloggers Choice Awards last year (our after PostieCon party at TAO included the BCA) and it was a joke. They just put up a screen and scrolled the winners. Ted knocked down and broke a few of the awards when he backed up into them too! Hopefully this years awards is more of an actual presentation or something.

Hey Roxie I dont know if you agree but Bree is the hottest woman on TV!!
