Fundraising is Ruff!

Hi, Gang. OK, before you start in with the, "Oh, look who decided to drop in, like, a month after promising all these wonderful changes around the blog" stuff...I know, I know, I know. But don't get all high and mighty on me. I'm doing something good. And maybe you can help me.


As most of you know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And as some of you may know, finding a cure for breast cancer is a cause near and dear to my heart, since this disease prevented me from ever getting to know my mother. It's also the cause of most of my night sweats because, you know, I've got about 9,998 of the 10,000 risk factors.

Anyhoo, you might remember that I participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K walk over the summer, and many of you generously donated. Well, I'm making a grab for your wallets again, peeps. My buddy Tristan (technically my sister's dog but he loves me best, so it's really like he's mine) and I are kicking off NBCAM with the Komen Paws for the Cure one mile dog walk on Sunday, October 3. Even though the 5K was more strenuous, I'm required to pick up dog shit on this walk, so I think I deserve some extra bucks for that mess. I hope you'll donate if you're able. To go to my donation page, just click on the picture at the top of the near sidebar.

Thanks in advance to all of you donators. Tristan is licking your face and humping your leg in spirit.

Good for you and Tristan!

The news had a story about Susan G, Koman today. She was only 36 years old when she passed away. That's WAY too young!

Let's strike out cancer, so October just become National Breast Awareness Month. Come on people!

I'm planning my own NBcAM bit, too.

Good luck to you and poopy dog, Tristan.

Seriously, I was sorry to hear about your mom.

More power to ya on your breast fight, but I prefer a more "hands on" approach.

Do you have a dog named Tristan? That's such a human name. Love it.

Congrats on the fund raising for a worthy cause. : )

Hey, I've just started reading your blog and I have to say it is amazing. You write really well, and you have so many good ideas on blog posts. I lost my mum to breast cancer too, but at least I got to meet mine unlike you :( Anyway, congratulations for doing this, I hope you get loads of money, it is a very worthy cause.
You're probably too busy to read this comment, but if you do by any chance, would you mind taking a look at my blog?

Of course it's nowhere as near as witty and clever as yours.
:D Please don't stop writing

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
