Miss Chick Lit


Contestant Introduction: Hi! My name is Miriam May Finnegan but my friends call me Mimi. I am the last person you would EVER expect to be in a beauty pageant. For starters I’m thirty-four and I have a bunion. The good news is that I just went through a serious metamorphosis and have come out of my cocoon like gangbusters! The bad news is that my bunion, Edith Bunker, is still around. And she still talks to me…

Swimsuit Competition: This model and I have nearly identical body types. So I know if she rocks the suit, so will I! Also the green will look great with my new hair color.

Contestant Talent: My talent is the ability to let you know the exact number of Weight Watcher points in every food imaginable. I can do this while tying maraschino cherry stems into knots with my tongue and juggling honeydew melons (zero points on Weight Watchers).

Interview Question: What magazine cover do you want to be on?

Answer:  I want to be on the cover of Weight Watchers Magazine! That would mean that I finally got rid of those ten pounds and Marge, my leader, would be SO proud! And of course it would also mean my bunion, Edith Bunker, would be history. That, my friends, would be a red letter day. Bring on the cover!

You can enter at each of the blogs participating in the pageant. So, that’s 18 chances to win!

  1. Edith Bunker?? My god you are hilarious! Loved your blog. I would want to be on the cover of 50 and Fabulous! I’m not sure I could rock the lime green bathing suit… but if air brushing is involved, I’m game.

  2. I want to be on the cover of O Magazine, hopefully Oprah’s favorite things issue… (not entering because I’m participating in the pageant, but I loved this question)

  3. I used to be able to do the WW thing! I was allotted 26 points a day when I was on it. I had to be careful! As far as a magazine, Women’s Health!

  4. Love your Miss Chick Lit entry! I would want to be on the cover of Shape magazine. It usually has strong, fit women, instead of waiffy models that the wind could blow over. Plus, I don’t think I’d need a boob job to get the cover. A lot of them are normal and not rocking C or D cups.

  5. Hee! I love Mimi’s talent. I’m glad she was finally able to put all of her WW points knowledge to use! And kudos to her on her bathing suit selection. That electric green will look fab with her red hair!

    Great post, Whitney! 🙂

  6. This is a tough question, I hate to only choose one! There are a handful of magazines that I would seriously love to be on the cover of, but I’ll narrow it down to my top two. My absolute number one favorite is InStyle Magazine. It’s my favorite all-around magazine from fashion to lifestyle and everything in between. My second pick is Glamour Magazine. Glamour always features strong, confident, and inspirational women that are exemplary of what a role model looks like.
