Kelly Polark-ing

Did you watch the Oscars? Angelina's right leg stole the show. Forget Tebowing. Now the new thing is Angelina Jolie'ing. See here for the goofiness. Plus her right leg is ending up in some crazy places (see here on E!online).

So, I'm going to start a new craze. Kelly Polark-ing which will be so much cooler than planking. What would be something that Kelly Polark would do? Tell me in the comments, and I'll pick a pose to start our own photo sensation! Because we should all take ourselves seriously, right? I'm sure it wasn't Angelina's intention to be mocked the following week. But any publicity is good publicity!

While I've got your attention I want to give a few shout outs to some worthy authors.

I only heard about the whole Angelina leg thing last night. I guess since she wasn't nominated for an Oscar, she had to do something to upstage Brad. Heaven forbid she let him have his moment.

Thank you, Kelly! And you look really nice Polark-ing.

storyqueen said...

I love Polark-ing!

It's going to be BIG!

Kelly Polark said...

Stina- My thoughts exactly! She is not content to step aside.
Alex- Congrats again, Alex!
Shelley- I'm not exactly sure what Kelly Polarking is yet, but I'll figure it out! :)

Matthew MacNish said...

You look awesome.

Rena said...

Thank you, Kelly!

And you know, you look a lot better than Angelina. As beautiful as she is, she doesn't look healthy. I don't know how a woman her height could be at 90+ pounds or so. Last thing I read about her was that she eats about 800 calories a day. Of course, I'm sure I read that in a tabloid while standing in line at the grocery store. Ha! But let the records show -- YOUR leg is much nicer looking! :)

Thank you again for the book plug. Pony Strings & Critter Things turned out really cute. We had a change in illustrators from the first 2 books, so I was happy to see Ginger Nielson had kept the style so similar. She did a great job!

Cynthia Lee said...

I think Angelina is prolly a pretty nice person but, honestly, that leg of hers looked like a sticky bird leg.

Tony Van Helsing said...

As long as Pol-arking involves you showing off your legs more often then I'm all for it.

Kelly Polark said...

Thank you, sweet Matt!
Rena- Yeah, even men don't like that skinny look. My husband said, "Oh, man. She looks anorexic." And looking forward to reading your new book!
Cynthia - I'm sure she never dreamed that leg would get so much attention this week!
Tony - Ha! You always crack me up!

Suzanne Casamento said...

Yay for Rena!

As for Polarking, it has to be code for dancing, right?!

jama said...

*whistles*

Kelly, you deserve one of those golden statues :). Thanks for the smiles today.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I only watched Billy Crystal at the beginning of the show. He was funny.

Awesome about Alex's debut.

Laura Pauling said...

If I were Kelly I'd go to a rock concert and get a picture snapped with the lead singer! While wearing red lipstick! :)

Adrienne said...

Thanks for the amusing links! I love your picture too...you look great! And yeah, we should all take ourselves far less seriously.

Ray Veen said...

I'm gonna have to agree with the other dude's who've commented.

Kelly's leg = good
No matter what you call it.

Lydia Kang said...

That leg thing was so awkward!

Your picture is hilarious. You must do more spoofs!

Kelly Polark said...

Suz- Dancing, singing, smiling. All of the above. :)
Thanks, Jama! Always wonderful to see you!!!
Natalie - Billy seemed much more at ease than last year's hosts!
Laura - Yes, that is definitely something I enjoy! :)
Thanks, Adrienne. One thing I love to do is laugh. At myself. :)
Ray- Why thank you, kind sir. :)
Lydia - Thank you for being amused. :)

Sophia Chang said...

Wow. You actually shouted out planking.

And I had no idea The Leg was a big deal either. sigh...

laurasalas said...

Get it, girl!

I think Polark-ing should be some kind of crazy dance movement, like a still shot of something you'd do at a concert when you're caught up in the music. Sadly, I can't be more specific than that:>)

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

HAHAHA! You seriously rock that right leg pose!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

You've got fantastic legs! I'm so jealous!

Love Polark-ing!

Pk Hrezo said...

your pic is too cute! And I think Jolie did exactly what she intended... making a stir. She's that kind of girl.
Is it me or is she looking a but sickly? I've always loved her as an actress, but I'm guessing she's eitehr anorexic or bullemic the way her head is bigger than her body. Plus her hair looked so brittle. She's not healthy, that's for sure.

Peggy Eddleman said...

Hahahaha! I love it!

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

I missed the Oscars, so I missed the whole Angelina leg thing and wasn't too sure what all that was about. Thanks for clearing it up some, Kelly! : ) P.S. Great pic!

James Garcia Jr. said...

OMG! Too funny. I think your hubs was right. Jolie looked like she needed to be taken out for dinner or something.
I will be very curious to see what this Polark-ing thing might be. Why do I get the mental image that it should be something with you having a guitar hanging behind your back?

Rock on, my friend!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I Kelly Polarked at McDonald's....I got some strange looks???? People are weird! (wink)

Congratulations to Alex and Rena!

Christina Farley said...

Haha! I had a good kick out of your outfit. You need to be on the runway girl. Do they have the red carpet for writers?

Bish Denham said...

HA! What a hoot you are. I'm sure Polark-ing would HAVE to include something with loud music and perhaps some blood being splattered....

cleemckenzie said...

I loved that leg thing on the Oscars! I love it here, too. I think you're better at it than Angelina, actually.

Give us some vintage, Kelly. How about a Garbo or a Bankhead pose?

Missed Periods said...

Nice gams, lady! You're so funny.

Susan Fields said...

I totally missed the Oscars and the whole Angelina leg thing. That website is so funny - especially the picture of the dog!

E.J. Wesley said...

Polark-ing has some promise! :)

EJ

Shelli (srjohannes) said...

very very angeline jolie :)

Theresa Milstein said...

Ha! Love your pose!

She's got great legs. Why just give a peek out of a slit when you can expose the entire leg?!

Cherie Colyer said...

Love the Kelly Polark-ing pics! I wonder if Angelina knew her leg would cause the buzz it has.

I tagged you in a Lucky 7 MEME.
Check it out on my blog.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

It was a bit obvious the way she was standing that she wanted everyone to see her leg!
Love this photo! You look gorgeous! And a much nicer looking leg too.

Kelly Polark said...

Sophia - The Leg. That's funny.
Laura - That is certainly something I'd do!
Sam- I had to take ten pics to get just the right pose!
Thank you, Wendy, you kind woman, you!
Pk- Yes, she does need nutrition. I luckily don't have a problem with that! :)
Peggy - :)
Cynthia - I aim to be educational AND entertaining. ;)
Jimmy - If only I could play guitar!!!
Sharon- One day we will meet up and go Polarking together.
Christina - Fabulous idea. There really should be a red carpet for writers..
Bish - The blood was a once (okay, twice) in a lifetime deal, so I'll go with loud music! ;)
Lee- I will work on that! :)
Thanks, Missed P!
Susan - I loved the dog pose the best, too!!
EJ- I was hoping it would have taken off by now.... ;)
Shelli- And my hubby is just like Brad's pit! :)
Theresa- Yes, definitely show it off once, but she kept posing like that all night.
Thanks, Cherie! I will check it out!
Thanks, Terry!

LTM said...

You make a perfect Angie. I think the moustache takes it over the top. Kelly FTW~ :o) <3

Sherrie Petersen said...

Omigosh, you are too funny! I remember watching that and thinking WTH? Does the woman really need to pose? Is she not getting enough attention already? Ugh. Off to strike my own pose. In front of the computer :)

Kimberly Franklin said...

Ha-ha. Love your pose. I didn't see the Oscars, but I can only imagine. Lol. :)

Kristin Rae said...

I am cracking up! hahaha. Yes the Angelina thing was a bit much. Planking is seriously strange but I always laugh about it. I'm anxious to see what Polark-ing will be. We'll spread it like wildfire!

DEZMOND said...

you're so Angelina Jolie, dahling, and that dog is a demon, I swear he is, look at his eyes :)
