  1. I’m raising money for the National Fibromyalgia Association. I forgot to update my last 2 posts with the info, but I will have it on the next one. I am only giving a penny per page, but since I am unemployed right now, that is about all I can give! I can only do what I can do, right?

  2. I have no sound on my computer. What the heck was that cat watching? Did they say? His paw was going up and his tail was going back and forth.

  3. I really wish I could donate something but before I even thought about it I had already given money to the ADA (American Diabetes Association) so I’m a little strapped for cash! But way to go all who are donating!

    That standing cat is so cool πŸ™‚

  4. I was sent this one and laughed myself silly. HOWEVER it is called Surprise Strip Tease- and while I promise.. no one gets naked!!… it may not be to everyone’s taste.

  5. See! Can a dog do that without using a person to lean on? Cats have evolved into bipedal beings.

    So, this isn’t a funny video…but it’s book related and very cool, especially with the volume on…

  6. I am raising money for the Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foudation. It is a rare genetic disorder that affects the connective tissues in the body. It causes cardiovascular and skeletal abnormalities. It was only founded in 2005 but of all its related disorders including Marfan Syndrome (more well known) it is the worst you can have. My sister had this disorder and was only 16 when she died from complications to an open heart surgery on Christmas day. Our friend who is only 14 has already had 26 major surgeries in her life, my sister had had 16 with a stroke and three seizures.
    Even though I’m only a young teenager I have donated to the foundation and educated others in the community. For every page i read I will donate 10 cents. Sad thing is, i read slow πŸ™ but i have read a lot of books so far

  7. Um…I am tempted right now to get and get my kitty and have her practice doing that…and I would too if I weren’t 100% she’d try to scratch my face off. (Hmm, maybe I should have her watch the video as inspiration or to ignite her competitive spirit or something.)

  8. Let’s try this again…I am tempted right now to “go” and get my kitty and have her practice doing that…and I would too if I weren’t 100% “sure” she’d try to scratch my face of.

    I’m more sleep deprived than I thought. *sigh*
