I Hope Miss Dallas has a Sense of Humor

Confession: I make daily excuses about why burning 3500 calories to lose one pound of fat is just simply overwhelming thus feeding into my love of bacon grease and donuts.

I met Miss Dallas at WIRED! in Canton, Texas a couple weeks ago. Even though I have mixed feelings over beauty pageants, I must say that Miss Dallas was one of the most delightful women I have ever met. I only mention I dislike beauty pageants, because I know there is someone out there that probably read my whole discourse on why I don't like beauty pageants and I don't want that person to feel like I am selling myself out or anything. Because I would never do that. Unless you tortured me with a donut. The truth is, even though I don't like the contest platform, I never said I don't like the contestants. It is like me and Monopoly: I don't like that game that somehow always ends up taking hours to play, but that doesn't mean I don't like my husband who always manages to beat me at it.

On any note, I sure hope Miss Dallas has a good sense of humor:

PS: Don't we look like sisters?

This cracks me up. I really liked the Monopoly analogy. My son beats me every single time but I love him anyway.... hate the game not the player.

Paulina, Truthfully, I use PSE too. Clone Stamp works great :)

Anon, Glad you found it funny--now if you find a way for us to win that game let me know.

Chef E, Isnt PS the best?

Kelli, The biggest change in the photos is my teeth. Check out my two front teeth and then check out the size of the grass in between us. lol :)

I have the utmost respect for you that you even stood next to her for a photo. I don't think I would-photoshop or not! I am glad to hear she was a great lady too-I like to think they aren't all bimbos that are obsessed with appearances.

tcyarbs, The biggest thing that stood out to me was how real and normal Miss Dallas is--definitely a pleasure to interact with.

Looking at the pics first, I thought you were related somehow (sisters, maybe?) You girls really look alot alike. (Ain't got nuthin' on ya, dear) :)

I really would have thought that was your sister! Yes... I love playing with Photoshop. I've given myself a nose job via Photoshop before. It's fun! Love the new teeth:-) ha!

Basically, Monopoly is the most boring game ever invented. Therefore, I refuse to play. My time is better spent doing ANYTHING else.

Ok, now I see it! Thanks for sharing the humor with me! And thanks for the continued kind comments about our meeting. Hope to see you again soon! To many other's disbelief, there are some trully genuine "beauty queens" in this world.
