breasts. they are great.

*Edited for clarification: The link below is work-safe, to the main page of the project (where the lovely boobies are never shown) The donated images of your boobs and mine are a fun awareness campaign thing. The site generates traffic, and some visitors donate. **

It's time to think about the Boobie-Thon, ladies.
The Blogger Boobie-Thon is an annual event run the first week ofOctober, which is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Bloggers from allover the globe send in photos of their boobies (covered and uncovered)to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research. This is the sixth yearfor the Boobie-Thon and our goal is to break the $10,000.00 mark. Inthe past 5 years, Robyn, the original founder of the Blogger Boobie-Thon has raised over $35,000 to date.
I can't remember if I actually sent in some nursing shots in '07 or '06 (holy shit:
Lilypie Breastfeeding Ticker

I remember crashing from glowing-milk-goddess-flowing-fountain-of-self-weaning plans to oh-just-let-me-keep-it-up-for-six-weeks. The I transitioned from Reglan-swollen leaking cantaloupes to aaaah "I got this" then to reverse-cycle poster mama for working LLL peeps. Then, you know, I went all sleep-deprived zombie psycho, and then had my night-weaning success story.) but I'm stoked to do some this year. I really want to try to get a pretty classical nursing portrait because total weaning is probably immanent. She's biting again, and she didn't even want to nurse this morning.

I've also been thinking Bu & I should do a sexy sultry photo session for our anniversary, so maybe I'll do a non-mommy boobiethon submission. Or both.

Anyway: yay boobs.

Also: You know what's awesome? A hot friend showing up at my house in the sexiest pirate outfit ever, with lovely fake tattoos saying "A Pirate's Life for Me" positioned perfectly on her amazing rack, and displaying super sexed-up healthy and fun flirtation that was a bastion of good-raunch in an evening peppered by uninvited ass/crotch grabbings.


  1. My brain does not understand nor do I feel like reading the confusing website for fear of running across a boobie at work. What do I do? Show my boobs and people give me money? I'm so confussssed.

  2. I sent my pic today. I might do more but last year I forgot (!) and I wanted to make sure I contributed.
