Jared's participating in a fundraiser. From his LJ:

"Crunch is doing this event called Knockout Breast Cancer Saturday. It's a boxing event to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

I need help two ways...the first is I am raising money so any donations will help. If you decide to donate I need to get your info so I can have Crunch send you a special thank you card that you can use as a tax write off. If I collect a minimum of $250 I will be included in a special sparring class that includes a lot of cool free boxing gear including new sparring gloves. I also get to spar a few rounds against a few people including a pro boxer for one round. So yes people I am willing to get beat up to fight breast cancer.

EDIT : Thanks to a helpful Bubbles I have figured it out. If you go to www.paypal.com and use my email address killercadoogan@gmail.com you can make a donation. For accounting purposes when you do please comment here with your name, address and donation amount so I can add it to the sheet. Comments will be screened.

Please help me literally fight against breast cancer. If you'd like please post this to your journals to help me out.

Thank you in advance for all your help. I love you all."

Three of her animals are still missing. She won't have electricity until 10/6, and there's between twenty and thirty thousand dollars in damages to her home.

SHE DOES NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT THIS WEEKEND. Understood? Do not. Mention. It.

Just buy stuff. Buy lots of stuff. Tell everyone you know to buy stuff.

I know many of you are fans of the clothing from House of Dra, and some of you are probably friends with Lady Dra herself.

Dra's home in Texas was in the path of Hurricane Ike. The extent of the damage to her property is unclear right now, but we do know that some of her animals are missing.

If you want to help Dra, and you happen to need a shirt, pair of pants, what have you, go buy something from her this weekend. Tell your friends and family to do the same, if they can.

Dra's a great lady; I'd like to help her out in any way I can.

[livejournal.com profile] thunderemerald brought us CHAMPAGNE! (no, really, it says so on the tag. CHAMPAGNE!) tonight! [livejournal.com profile] aziraphalesshop doesn't drink, and [livejournal.com profile] thunderemerald only wanted one glass, so the rest is ALL FOR ME!

I have had three glasses so far, and I can still type! And I am using a lot of exclamation points! HOORAY!

BIG and HUGE conga rats to [livejournal.com profile] jedi007 and [livejournal.com profile] synnoveaevael on their engagement!

"Ve're goingk to have to remodel ze castle, to make room for allllll ze babies!"

In completely unrelated news, Rich and I went to see Across the Universe last night.

YOU MUST GO SEE THIS MOVIE. Do it now! I can wait...

I thought it was absolutely brilliant. The songs were seamlessly integrated into the plot, as was the dancing, (for the most part.) It's been ages since I've cried, laughed, and cheered during a movie. This one did it all for me. Loved it! The characters were well developed, the plot made sense, the music worked. The dancing didn't look over-choreographed; it was more like, "We're messing around in a bowling alley, but we're all doing it at the same time." It wasn't, "And now we're all DANCING!"

I absolutely must have this on DVD when it comes out. Rich and I ran over to B&N after the movie let out and bought the soundtrack.

Mind you, I was already a Beatles fan to begin with, but now I want to complete my collection that much more. When the DVD comes out, I think I may cuddle it. It was really that good.

Also, Eddie Izzard's in it. ;)

Only one thing I have a question about. During the "With a Little Help From my Friends" sequence, where's the joint?

PING Nikki!

This is a shameless plug, but important - and please pass this along to all your friends as well.

For those of you who don't (didn't) know, our daughter was born on July 11, 2006 - after a full-term, uncomplicated pregnancy.

Two days after she was born, she was admitted into the NICU for observation and was subjected to numerous tests, including a spinal tap, three MRIs, EKGs, EEGs, Blood work....she had suffered a slight pediatric stroke.

All-in-all, we have been very lucky with the support of our friends and family.

However, in looking back, when we first left the hospital with our little girl, in many ways we felt alone - with no one to turn to in the same situation as we found ourselves. This is why we (my husband and I) have created Project: K.I.S.S.(E.S.) (Knowing Infant Stroke Survivors (Education & Support))- to both reach out to other families with children who have had strokes, as well as to educate those around us that kids have strokes too.

A stroke is a serious condition that doesn't just affect adults. Each year, Pediatric stroke affects 25 in 100,000 newborns and 12 in 100,000 children under 18 years of age.

We want to spread the word to everyone. Please check out our temporary site on (gasp) MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/projectkisses - and if you have an account, please friend us!


Go look at her LJ icon. Cutest. Baby. EVAR!

I think I was behind you on Orangeburg Rd. today.

Do you drive a white Celica?

This weekend was significantly better for me than the previous one. I sold ninety four roses on Saturday, and ninety three on Sunday. When I went home and played with the numbers, my monetary average is just a smidge below where I want it to be, even with the days we closed early and the day I had to miss. This makes me happy. Of course, my selling average is not what it should be, but you can't have everything.

I think the best part of this weekend was the completely random and unexpected appearance of an old friend. For those new to this journal, I went to The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in NYC. While there, I started playing D&D in the basement lounge of my dorm with an eclectic group of people, one of whom is Tim Ott, who is currently playing Guybrosh Threepwood the almost-pirate at NYRF.

Another was a rather interesting fellow named Schuyler. Schuyler was a little eccentric, very smart and savvy, funny, and generally fun to be around. After we graduated three years ago, we all went our separate ways, and I lost track of Schuyler. Tim managed to keep in touch with him a bit, though.

Well guess who showed up at faire on Saturday out of the blue? Schuyler! I didn't find out until pub sing, when I proceeded to pounce upon Schuyler and near-simultaneously punch Tim. Bastard knew ALL DAY and didn't tell me!

We caught up a bit the next day. He's doing well, he's happy. We exchanged e-mails, and hopefully will manage to keep in touch better this time around. Hopefully his faire visit will become a yearly occurence. We shall see. It was great seeing him!

The rude patrons have finally gotten to me. I finally snapped this weekend, and boy did it feel good! The first time was outside of Knightly. ([livejournal.com profile] axplazeboy is my witness to this.) Some woman was going on and on and on about how Attilla the Pup was in the booth, and they wouldn't let her bring her dog into faire, and that was terribly unfair of them, and so on and so forth. I turned around and said to her, "M'lady, that dog is part of the show," as scathingly as I could while still smiling sweetly. She then said that she'd just have to get a job there next year so she could bring her dog with her. Fat chance, bitch.

Later on, I tried to sell a rose to a couple in front of Medieval Productions. They side-stepped around me, and continued on their way without so much as a glance or a "No, thanks." So I turned around, pointed at their backs and shouted "ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES! 'TIS THE UNDEAD! HELP!!!" They didn't have a clue what was happening or why I was shouting at their backs, but the whole freaking street applauded me! I had to go away and re-gain my composure after that, I was laughing so hard. I'm glad to have provided a bit of entertainment to several vendors who were having a relatively uneventful day.

The next one was slightly more passive. I tried to sell a rose to a couple, and the woman said "NO!" as if I were a puppy who had just peed on her favorite shoes. So I raspberried them as they proceeded on their way. She totally turned around and looked, too. I kind of wish she'd have started something with me, so I could ask her if her mother had taught her any manners, or if she was just a mean person.

The last was near close. Pub Sing was going on, and there was a couple sitting on one of the benches that surround the lawn. I tried to sell them a rose, and they looked at me, then continued with their conversation. I stood there for a minute or two, waiting for them to say "No, thank you," or something, anything. Then I decided to do something about it. I said to them "You know, it's more polite to say 'No, thank you,' than to ignore a person. Have a nice day!" and walked away. They were pretty shocked.

I think I've gotten it out of my system now. Though the ZOMBIES bit did work pretty well at the time, I need a proper audience for it to go over properly in the future. It won't work in all situations, and the patrons have been being relatively polite recently. Not that that's a bad thing, of course.

Oh! I also bought Rich a pair of wrap pants from Dra's. I love them! He looks SO SEXY in them. ::swoon:: I hope he wears them on Saturday. ::hint, hint::

I had this thought this weekend. I have no recollection of what triggered it, or what I was doing at the time, but it's a really good thought.

I know some really amazing people. And I feel very lucky.

Other than that, this weekend managed to be not entirely craptastic. However, now I am thoroughly exhausted. Is it nap time yet?

Guess who I ran into this afternoon at Barnes & Noble?

You'll never guess.

Come on, try!

Nope!

It was Steph Pointer (Poynter?).

Did anyone else have her in the "Missing; Presumed Dead" column?

She's doing well; she'll be getting her teaching degree next year. Looked exactly the same as she always has.

She says hi to everyone. Especially Tina.

I gave her my e-mail.

Last night, [livejournal.com profile] pinball351 came to visit, and I had my first ever deli sandwich. It was a BLT on a roll with no mayo, for mayo disturbs me. It was wonderful. I want more.

That's about where the fun ended.

On the way home, 17A was closed. We got lost somewhere in Monroe, because the directions the cop gave us were not exactly accurate. I was tired. I was grumpy. I wanted to go to bed. Got home later than I wanted to.

Woke up with the alarm this morning. SO didn't want to get up. Rich told me I was drunk. He says very strange things when he wakes up, then doesn't remember them. My toothbrush tasted like hairspray. WTF???

On the way to work, another road was closed, so I had to take the long way around. Bah!

So now I'm sleepy, but if I have another cup of coffee, I'll be sleepy AND jittery. And it's like a freaking meat locker in here.

Is it bed time yet?

Who's going to NYRF clean-up on Saturday?

"Alexander, Leslie, and Richard are in a car, each with cell phones. If they are called, but do not answer, then the car is simultaneously devoid of and full of occupants, as per Schroedinger's theory."-[livejournal.com profile] chairlegoftruth

I've had a rather tense day. I've been trying to accomplish things, but other things seem bent on getting in my way. Therefore, if you are not Rich [livejournal.com profile] aziraphalesshop or Snowball, (or apparently [livejournal.com profile] charilegoftruth [in small amounts], who we seem to have adopted,) I don't particularly want to socialize with you. No offense.

In other news, hot chocolate with a shot of Creme de Menthe is rather relaxing, and tastes like a Thin Mint.

What can I say? This weekend was the most insane I have ever experienced at faire. So many emotional highs...and lows. Where should I start? I suppose the beginning is as good a place as any...

Saturday
First of all, Jolene [livejournal.com profile] lovethescythe was visiting from Mickey town this weekend. She was thoroughly pounced upon the moment I laid eyes on her. Sorry about almost crushing you to death, but you did say you wanted bear hugs. :)

Friday night I had gone to visit [livejournal.com profile] thecoddesslives at her place of employment. She told me that I would be getting a big surprise at faire this weekend, but she wouldn't tell me what. Rich [livejournal.com profile] aziraphalesshop knew what it was, but he wasn't going to give me the slightest hint. I was talking to Dark Angel [livejournal.com profile] euph0ra about what it might be Saturday morning, and I mentioned that I thought it could be M!ke [livejournal.com profile] defectivesoul coming home from Air Force duty in Spain, even though (last I heard) he wasn't due home until October. Well, I must be psychic, because someone snuck up on me later that day. M!KE'S HOME!!!!!!!!!!!! I totally freaked out and started squealing and pouncing on him. I got many comments about my sudden break in character, but I don't care. It was a special occasion, and well deserved. Of course, he very nearly gave me a heart attack, and I immediately pummeled Rich for not telling me, but YAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Welcome home, [livejournal.com profile] defectivesoul. We're glad to have you back!

Sunday
Sunday was wonderful and horrible all at once. I'll start with the wonderful, because that happened first.
You are reading the journal of the new Mistress of the Fae Guild at NYRF! That's right folks, I'm in charge of a guild. Mitch had the wonderful idea that since no one's really doing anything with the guild at the moment, I should be put in charge. He talked to Lars, and they cleared it with [livejournal.com profile] firebow, and poof! I'm Mistress Fae. I'm going to make a valiant attempt at getting the guild back on its feet and more organized. Next weekend I'm going to Lundegaard and getting the list of the current members.

Now, most of you have already heard from me what the horrible was. Instead of repeating myself here, I am going to let Rich [livejournal.com profile] aziraphalesshop tell the story in his own words in his journal, when he's ready.

I will, however say this:
Anyone who says that Rich is anything other than innocent is grossly mistaken. I am asking all of you to please, please, PLEASE correct anyone who says he was involved in any wrongdoing. Rich is the most honorable, trustworthy, and honest man I have ever known. As my friends, and as his friends, I hope that you will help prevent people from thinking otherwise.

Monday
Monday made me feel much better about the events of Sunday. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who was there for me, even if it was only to listen to the truth. It makes me feel wonderful to know that I have people I can depend on to be there for me when I need support. I hope you all know I'm here for you too.

Anyway, I finally bought my Starfire on Monday. It's the 24 inch light sword, and they wrapped the handle in purple leather for me. So pretty...I have named her Serena.

We sold out of roses rather early. I was done with my basket completely by about four o'clock. After that I ran around saying goodbye to everyone and making sure all of Rich's friends got up to date information on the situation. ([livejournal.com profile] mynock25, I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to you!) After that, I went home. After changing clothes, Rich and I played swords on my front lawn. Serena handles beautifully, but I have a long way to go before I know enough to actually wear her regularly. We scared my neighbors, and my grandparents, who happened to be visiting.

Another big thank you goes out to [livejournal.com profile] thecoddesslives and [livejournal.com profile] goodbyesnothing. Dinner was fun! I think we both needed to get out with friends who weren't involved in the stupidity in any way shape or form. ::hugs::

Thus ended the insanity of this Black Monday weekend. It keeps getting crazier every year...

PS-[livejournal.com profile] firebow, I'm really sorry I didn't get to talk to you about the guild. I got back to the grove right after you had left to go home. Drop me an e-mail when you get a chance.

That's all folks!

Yesterday at work I rang up a man with the last name (and I'm totally serious here) Bizarro. Yes, boys and girls, this man's name was Mr. Bizarro. Let me tell you, I had the damndest time keeping myself from smirking.

And now for something completely different...

I know some of you are going through unhappy times. Hang in there! If you ever need a smile, just IM me or something (Spookie14 on AIM). I'll do my very best to cheer you up, even if I have to subject you to my bad elephant jokes. :) I care about y'all!

I finally have time to write about how wonderful my birthday was!

On my actual birthday, (the 14th) I got presents. :) These included the Dark Crystal Collector's Edition DVD and a Dave & Buster's card from my wonderful, fantastic boyfriend Rich [livejournal.com profile] aziraphalesshop.

From the parental units and the younger fraternal unit I received LotR Trivial Pursuit (which I will kick anyone's butt at, anywhere, anytime), two books by Garth Nix, some bubble bath and lotion, Clue on DVD, a LotR National Geographic DVD, The RotK Visual Companion, a CD of music by EverStar based on LotR, and The Great Muppet Caper on DVD. (The last two didn't arrive until later.)

On my way to class that night, I got stuck in traffic so terrible that I would not have been able to actually arrive at class before it was over. So, I turned around and came home. At home, dinner was waiting. After dinner, there was an unexpected ice cream cake! The family sang to me, and Snowball even joined in! It was the cutest thing ever.

Fast forward to Thursday. After my class, I drove up to New Paltz. Ricky called me to wish me happy birthday, and it was super cool.

We went out to Cabaloosa's/Oasis for 80's night. They didn't make me pay a cover charge. :) Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mclongbaugh, [livejournal.com profile] thecorinthian2, [livejournal.com profile] defectivesoul, and [livejournal.com profile] majicou83 for coming to party with me. :)

The Stefan person bought me a White Russian, which I found to be super yummy. That was all I drank the entire evening. Therefore, I did not get drunk. Couch Tim later yelled at me for that fact, but personally, I prefer watching (and sometimes laughing at) the drunk people to being a drunk person.

Friday was a day of recovering from the partying. There were many snuggles, and video games.

Saturday [livejournal.com profile] ever_abstract and [livejournal.com profile] gothic_cowboy came up to visit for my birthday. They brought me a really pretty ceramic fairy figure. (Thanks guys!) She's currently residing on my window sill. I have to figure out a more prominent home for her, though. That requires room cleaning.

We showed them around NP, and spent quite a bit of money. It was much fun. We ended up going to many shops, one of which is called Dragon's Lair in the Water Street Market. There, I finally found something to spend Grandma's Christmas money on. It's a pewter figurine of a fairy sitting on a unicorn. The fairy's wings are holographic sparkly stuff. It's so pretty!

Sunday was yet another day of recovery and laziness. (See Friday)

Monday was dinner with my family at the Outback in Suffern. Grandma and Grandpa came. I ordered a Wallaby Darned, which I enjoyed greatly. The waiters came out and sang at me at dessert. Then I had an Irish Cream coffee, which was very large, but nummy.

At that point, my 21st birthday was officially over, and so is this post. :)

In approximately 19 hours (if my calculations are correct) I will be the proud owner of a brand spankin' new copy of "The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers" Extended edition DVD! That's right folks, it comes out tomorrow, and I'm going straight from my physical therapy appointment to the mall to purchase my copy. Don't expect to hear from me for a couple of days, as I will be holed up in my room thouroughly examining every piece of information on all of the disks. Oh joy! Oh rapture! Numerous hours of LotR viewing pleasure! Weeeeee!

In other news, hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] gothic_cowboy and [livejournal.com profile] melancholia33 this weekend was super fun, and we have to do it more often.

I learned how to roll sushi watching Queer Eye for the Straight Guy yesterday. I love that show. I want the Fab 5 to come to my house. They're so absolutely adorable, I want to keep them as pets. :)

My Freaks teacher hasn't e-mailed me back about the project I'm supposed to be working on yet. I'm supposed to be writing a 2-3 page abstract of the final paper, but I have no idea what this entales. So I e-mailed her to ask for some suggestions, and she hasn't written me back. The paper's due Thursday. I'm e-mailing it in to her because I'm going to see Henry IV with Rich [livejournal.com profile] aziraphalesshop and his mom that night, but I'd like to get it out of the way in order to make time for the above mentioned DVD.

Bleh. My eyes are itchy. I think I'm going to go take out my contacts.
