What started out as a joke, since I am SOOOO married to the most wonderful, hot, smart, paternal man a girl could ever dream of, has "become it's own animal". My BlogHer '09 roomie and blogging idol, Sue, from http://www.happymealsandhappyhour.blogspot.com/ and I are in on this together. This way we can blame each other if anything goes wrong! LOL!

In an attempt to find a theme for an upcoming Bunko party I host once a year, and the never-ending trend of animal prints, I came up with "Cougarpalooza". Most of my friends are all "of a certain age", have a fondness for leopard print items, and can appreciate photos of garment-challenged twenty-something males. It seemed a perfect theme. Then, my cousin sent me two "COUGAR" shirts from the Washington State team. I will only wear them AFTER I have "bedazzled and blinged" them. Another "cougar" trait.

This could be HUGE! Cougars are everywhere! Apparently, Courtney Cox is set to star in a TV series called "Cougartown". You know where I will be when that is on! I watched all of "The Cougar", the reality (huh?!) dating show...the Cougar ended up engaged to one of the contestants on the finale'...he was barely older than her son! Nutty goodness!

The jokes started to fly, and somehow, even my husband is calling me a "Cougar". He bought me a new Jaguar (the car!) for Valentine's Day, so the "cat" theme continues!

I figure, if nothing else, this can be a forum for jokes, stories, and any photos/videos of "Cougar-Bait" you would like to see posted! Send them to cougarpalooza@sbcglobal.net!

**Yes, your cougar-bait can be famous...just be sure to let us know where you got the photo so we can give proper credit!


  1. You never fail to make me laugh! I will gladly follow cougarpalooza. What a fun, fun word!

  2. Only you, Lisa.... and I'm glad to be along for the ride!!!

  3. I don't think I'm technically old enough to qualify yet, but I can't wait to be one when I grow up! Until then, I have you guys to look up to...

    Haha, this is awesome!

  4. Since it's 2012, you need to thank me for commenting since I'm a world famous author and a multi-millionaire... however, since I can totally wear everything leopard print and have had the plastic surgery to back it up, I had to come say hello...

  5. I agree - a very fun, fun word. And i'm also married to the man of my dream but hey - I can appreciate a Zac Efron or Rob Pattinson shirtless photo any day.

    BTW I don't see an email/contact info on your site... you might be interested in this for your blog: http://www.nbcsandiego.com/around-town/events/Cougar-Crowned-at-Del-Mar-52539202.html

  6. Babyblooze...thanks for the link!!! My neighbor just told me about it! There is an e-mail address in the first post for correspondence, and hopefully some "submissions" of Cougar stories and photos!
