Don't bet against the House (of Fab)

This is Sharra. You might remember this picture from the party Mrs. Fab and I threw back in May.

Sharra has a team in our company fantasy baseball league.

She's a lovely girl. And she has many fine qualities. Managing a fantasy baseball team is not, however, one of them.

Our two teams went head-to-head last week. And Sharra, in an unusual show of bravado called me out and challenged me. Me! Can you believe it?

On the line: A deluxe massage at a spa for her, and three months tanning for me.

Who won?

Let's just say she may feel free to eat her heart out whenever she casts her eyes on my golden healthy glow.
By the way, that is not me in the photo.

In stinky news, I put two coats of Kilz on all the wood and plaster and I repainted the concrete. I'll get everything put back in there today. Then we will evaluate the carpet situation. We'll get it cleaned first and see where we need to go from there.

Thanks for all the advice guys, I really appreciate it!

Have a great 4th of July if you are in America. And if you are in Canada, much love, my blogging pals from the north!

I'm first!

My Mom just had skin cancer - I feel obligated to point out that tanning is stupid. :P

Happy Fourth, Mr. Fab! Just remember to have an adult present when lighting off fireworks.

Erin--I know, you are absolutely right. And yet...

Dick--Why do you always take Erin's side? :)

Lorraine--Thank you my friend!

Nanuk--Where am I going to find an adult?

I'll be out as soon as the flight money hits my account. Get working on that tan.

Have a great holiday all of you. :)

I cant tan because I get bored laying there doing nothing. It is impossible for me to lay still long enough to tan.

Have you seen my skin cancer scar? Ask Shelli about it. Don't they have a spray-on tan booth anywhere in Hogtown?

Knock. It. Off.

I have never had a tan in all my life....too fair.

Happy 4th to you too.:)

Blogger Shelli said...

You knew that you would get all of us who know people who have had or have personally had skin cancer would tell you to please quit tanning. I am glad that you won, but I wish that you would find a spray on place like Megan suggested.

Do you get waxed?

I take erin's side because I like her more (I was hoping you wouldn't force me to come out and TELL you, but you left me no choice). But you're okay too.

I miss the tanning bed so much... The warmth, the fan stirring the air, the radio playing in the background - all these elements made for the best sleep ever!

Alas, I don't tan anymore; I burn and then turn butt-white all over again.

I'm jealous.

Happy 4th of July!

Don't. Tan.

I have spoken.

Beating a girl....hahahahaaaaa!!! Yeah, I'm sure that was like a big deal for you....hahahahaaa!!!!

I'm working until about 3pm :-(
Then off for fun and fireworks :-)

Look, I've already told you over and over that you are a sexy beast.

Give all your female admirers a break~they may not be able to take much more of your golden lushiness!

p.s. Did I spell lushiness right?

12:57 PM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Suze--I will wire it tomorrow. Can you actually cook? :)

Katt--Yeah, but in the bed it's only for 20 minutes at a time...

Megan and Shelli--Okay, I'll make a deal with you, my dear sisters. Megan, you stop smoking, and Shelli, you stop shooting smack, and I'll stop tanning :)

Sandi--No one in Minnesota tans, dear :)

D--Do you think I should?

Dick--I thought we were friends, man...

Ficklechick--LOL Hey, I am an equal opportunity ass kicker! :)

Spidey--Thanks buddy! :)

Tense Teacher--Isn't it awesome? It's addicting, I swear...

Dawn--But..but...I have to...

Dick--It is much different from beating girls UP, which I used to do as a pimp...

Michele and KQueen--Thanks, you too!

Kayla--You have to work today? That sucks!

Pissy--I know, I really should back off a little bit :)

CS--Not to worry, I am not a fireworks guy!

Blogger Dick Small said...

Of COURSE we are. I'm just being obnoxious (as usual, I'm afraid)... I think you're great (did I ever tell you you're my favorite blogger? Much more than Jen).

Blogger ablondeblogger said...

You beat me to the joke. I was going to ask if that was you in the picture (I still think it is and you're lying!)

And just to join in the "don't tan" know that post I made about the stupid comments I made at that funeral?

The guy died very young and it was from skin cancer. It's better to be pale and alive than tan and dead. :)

I always use tanning spray. Loreal's Sublime Tanning Spray works the best.

Just for the record, those of us in California prefer to think of it as a separate country...albeit one that still has the Stars and The Stripes, but one that hasn't been co-opted by Bushco!

Happy Fourth, Mr & Mrs Fab! May a display of fabulous fireworks celebrate your fabulousness!

4:32 PM  
Blogger zhadi said...

Oh yeah...and I do use a tanning booth, but in very small increments and I have checkups with a dermatologist to keep an eye on things...

I grew up in Southern California and am used to being's hard to grow up and face reality, careful with that tanning booth!

You were a worthy competitor in BOTB -- well, not really, since I won!!!

Btw, I tan too. I know it's stupid. But I like how I look with a tan. Which is also stupid. Sigh.

6:42 PM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Dick--You know I love you, man!

ABB--Tanning spray doesn't last very long though, does it?

Zhadi--And I thought Texas was the only state with that big an ego :)

Lori--You too, hon!

Monique--I know. But we both look so damn good! :)

Is it possible to post the carpet smell for us somehow? Is there a smellblog?

Duuuude, my hero.

A Healthy glow on you would be like adding A1 to a medium well juicy steak. And I ain't even gay!!

Congrats on the win....and tell Sharra that hell, I'm up for a challenge. I need some Falcons season tickets.

Happy 4th.

Blogger Dick Small said...

I'm not gay either.

Blogger Lynda said...

I don't tan, but I am not going to tell you not to tan. That would be like me telling someone to stop smoking. Everyone has their vices. Just don't expect me to tan with you, because I only turn one color - red. And don't expect me to smoke with you either. You know why.

No, you have to exfoliate and reapply fairly often, but it's better than going through chemo. :)
