TBWCYL Day 305 - Unsung Heroes

Today I am supposed to highlight an unsung hero and I can't think of a better person to highlight then Lola Lakely.

Lola is a fellow blogger that somehow or other I got connected to and I love her. She is my unsung hero for so many reasons. First off she is the living embodiment of Jessica Rabbit and is one of the only red heads I can say I find attractive. She is also certifiably crazy.

Read her bio of herself and tell me she isn't loony toons. She is a 14 year old frat boy with an alcohol fixation and commitment issues. For example, she has rules for dating that would give any psychoanalyst a thesis to kick start their career.

  1. Never see the same person two weekends in a row.
  2. Once you've made a date with someone on a weekend, make sure you relegate him/her to a weeknight next time.
  3. Leave Saturdays for meeting new people.
  4. Don't hook up with your friends. This only leads to feelings. Yuck.
  5. If you are too drunk to drive and must sleep over, make sure you leave before breakfast the next morning.
  6. Never, ever go to a wedding with someone you are dating.
  7. This one should be blatantly obvious but just in case- No meeting families. EVER.
She is also good for a laugh as she weekly goes out and does things that are not only ridiculous but also humorous. I would link to those posts but it is about half of her blog. She is the first to admit this and writes about it often.

Beware introducing your boyfriend to her as she steals them like I steal hearts. Her reputation is pretty sketchy on this front.

Now, as to why she is my unsung hero: she is not afraid to risk life and limb for a laugh. Anyone who does that is in the hero category automatically, hence the Spider-Man obsession. She drunk texts, she wakes up with paint in her hair and doesn't know where it came from, and she has a reputation with the local restaurants and convenience stores that know her by name.

She is my hero,

Wow. WOW. I can't believe this. This really just made my day- eff it- it made my week. Can I just bottle you up and put you in my pocket? I want to go around feeling like an unsung hero every day. Or at least like Robin Ho...

Thanks again Trinity!!!!

mysterg - I can't blame you

Lola - Glad to make your week. I didn't know it would be that easy.

Well, I'm easily excitable. That's equal parts good and bad, I think. It really was such a lovely write-up.
