Courtney‘s email announcing our newest Blog-Off word was met with a stunned response when it hit the QC inbox the other day – what am I going to write that?"  Or rather, those?  I quickly recovered when into my head popped a reminder of something that, at least for me, has been very closely linked to breasts in the recent past: cell phones.  I know that more than a few of you are nodding right now, well aware and possibly even a little guilty of (or benefiting from) where I am going with this.  If not, stick around.  I’m going to let you in on a little secret.

In this day and age, who doesn’t have a camera phone, right?  They’re great for those days when you forget your digital on the kitchen counter and you don’t want to miss recording a memory, when you can’t resist sharing with a friend the perfect pair of shoes you just found, when you’re too lazy to put pen to paper to record that number you need or when you’ve put together the perfect combination of shirt, camisole, bra, whatever it takes, to makes your tits look amazing and don’t want to miss the opportunity to share the view with someone who can truly appreciate it. 


This infamous photo, cleverly referred to as ‘How do you like my manicure?‘ in our circle, was a joint effort by me and Kelly.

No, despite what you may think, I am not the only one who has done this.  In fact, I’ve realized that there is nothing unique about me at all.  To test this theory, I’ve started to broach the subject in girls only situations and, I gotta tell ya, the topic is usually met with a chorus of cell phones snapping open as everyone scrolls to share their offerings.  That’s right.  You see a 20- or 30-something year old woman with a cell phone in her hand, chances are she’s got a shot of her boobs on there.  And if she’s worth her salt, it’s a lock she’s shared it (them) with someone who others might deem inappropriate.

Yeah, you heard me.  Isn’t technology great?  I mean seriously, what have you been using your phone for?

Then again, maybe I just hang around with sluts.

    I plead the fifth.

  2. jan Says:

    I’m somewhat older than that but I have never considered a photo shoot of my breasts. Until now.

  3. kelly Says:

    Whatever. I’m not gonna say I’m one of them…but inappropriate? I don’t see anything inappropriate about it. I think what those tabloid people do is worse.

  4. Mommy the Maid Says:

    I don’t have a camera phone (no I don’t live under a rock LOL) but I am sure that if I did, I would have a cleavage shot.

  5. Rachael Says:

    Vancouver was the shit. I’ve still got something for you though. I’ll be back in a few weeks. By the way, this post might convince me to use my camera phone again.

  6. Peter Says:

    I use my cell phone only for serious business. From 8 am to 7 pm. But after that?

  7. Evette Says:

    Ok…I’ve never taken a shot of my clevage with my phone…nor have I shot anyone elses…I just find that weird! (And I’m not a prude!) I do have some great pictures with great clevage…but not taken with my phone…I may have to get out more!

    btw…the amber pendant in the picture is gorgeous!

  8. Jason Says:

    I have a phone that does just abut everything BUT take pictures. Why the hell am I talking about my phone rather than your picture? One thing to remember about technology… it is driven by porn. Camera phones were invented specifically to allow people to take pictures of their boobs and other parts.

  9. C~ Says:

    I just…I…never even thought of it! LOL I may have to now…

  10. Megs Says:

    I love this picture Carly…. for real. Nice manicure. 🙂

  11. Piera Says:

    Hmmmm, boob shots with your phone, what a GREAT idea!

  12. Gaby Says:

    LOL. I’ve never tried it. I’ve got a camera phone and I shoot at everything but that thought never crossed my mind. Maybe I’ll try it.

  13. dawnmarie Says:

    I just showed Nick this picture.

    N: Nice. Who’s that?
    Me: Carly
    N: She’s coming to the wedding, right?

  14. Erin Banks Says:

    I once took a picture of my cleavage – but cleavage that is – while i was in the bathroom in a movie theatre and sent it to my sister who was waiting for me in the theatre. she still has it in her phone. i should do something about that…

  15. Erin Banks Says:

    i’m an idiot. obviously but = butt. how OCD of me to not just let that one go…

  16. bitsy parker Says:

    Nice manicure!

  17. QueenieCarly Says:

    Court: I wasn’t going to name any names. You kind of pointed that finger at yourself!

    Jan, Cyndi, Gaby: Do it! Then report back.

    Kel: I just meant that I was showing them (the photos, of course) to inappropriate people. Maybe I’m counting you as one of those inappropriate people, maybe not.

    MTM: You should get one just for that reason, so that you can carry one around with you.

    Rachael: Call me when you’re back in town, okay? And bring your camera phone! 😉

    Peter: Obviously, you’re not using your cell to its full potential.

    Evette: That pendant was brought back from Poland for me when my neighbour and friend went there a couple of summers ago. I had someone create a necklace from the piece.

    Jason: You’ve got a point about porn. You definitely have a point. And, why were you talking about your phone, anyway?? 😉

    Thanks Megs! And Bitsy too! I thought that manicure looked pretty damn good! ;D

    You’re a sell out, Piera. I’m just sayin’….

    Dawn: That made me laugh SO hard! That being the first second hand interaction that I’ve heard of between Nick and I, I think we’ll be getting long just fine. (Note: I am not dressing like that on April 5, 2008! I guess I’ll have to introduce myself!)

    Erin: Butt cleavage. Nice. You’ve just planted the seed of an idea in the minds of a huge crowd of women. (I’d have totally posted again for clarification too. I like to think that kind of devotion to getting a message across is cute. It looks cute on you, anyway.)

    Random note to my Dad: I’m sorry you had to look at this. TMI, I’m sure. (Although, my guess is he’ll never be back to check on the comments and, hell, I’m not going to bring it up in person!)

  18. Dex Says:

    Uh yeah. You do hang out with sluts. I mean with names like Rebecca and Kelly….those sound more like stage names.

  19. Nathan Pralle Says:

    What a pretty set that is! All dressed up and ready to go out on the town. I, for one, certainly don’t have a picture of any of my parts stored in my phone, but then again, I don’t know of many guys that would. I don’t have any *women* stored in there, either, I guess, although I should get one of my wife sometime (not her rack, as such, although that’s certainly photoworthy). I should hang out with women that let me take such photos with my cell, however. 😉

  20. flap Says:

    Yeah, that is it. You just hang around with sluts!!!

  21. Tara Says:

    Fun picture and nice necklace (can you tell I’m not a guy?) 😉

  22. Evey Says:

    You are weird and freaky people out there on the west coast 😉

  23. Mon Says:

    Um. I may have done worse with a camera. I think girls are just curious what we look like? Right?
