Wear Orange on April 10, 2008


Please support this great organization by wearing orange, and maybe kick them a little money? They support animal rights, and not in that weird, college age hippe, PETA animal rights.

I mean the ones that animals should never have to endure - mental and physical abuse, cruelty and torture.

My poor Heidi was an ASPCA pick, burned by a cigarette by her former owner and beaten so badly her pelvis and her back eventually fused together from their malformation. And she was a great pet - kind and sweet, loved to play with her rope. Her only fault was that she got a little nippy when people touched that sensitive area of her back, the poor thing. RIP, babe!

Please help them in anyway you can. I've been a member for years.

The end of the week?

Nope, not for me. I'm a bit crocheted out - thank god my bag for the HSKS4 is knitted!

I think I should be able to get far with it, but it may depend on the ability of the Elgin interview to get finished quickly. I don't know. With DB, who knows?

I'm a bit tired out of crochet for the week. I literally, spent the entire week doing nothing but blankets, booties and a little jacket, and buying baby clothes. My dance studio is donating everything to charity, and there was a nice little contest about it.

I figure I have everyone beat - I made some stuff, bought some stuff, and my mom even sent a baby picture for the "do you recognize me?" contest!

Fun stuff!

I also joined LinkedIn this week. Yup, I finally joined the adults and plan on using it for networking. I deliberated inviting my boss to my network, but decided against it and only invited the boss I like.

Talk to y'all later!
