The high school where I teach has a huge fundraiser for Cancer Week, and our goal this year was $60,000.The week culminates in a huge headshaving event; this year we had about 45 students and teachers who had been fundraising for the last month. The money goes directly to our provincial Cancer Foundation.
I raised $1000, in honour of my best friend who died of Leukemia two years ago. I asked 4 of my students who shaved their heads last year to come up with me and cut off my ponytails to be donated, it was pretty cool. A teary but awesome day.
I just remembered this morning though; I hate having bangs. Heh, I will have them for a long time now :D
Well, i’ve been watching this shitstorm all day, reading there, reading here, I left for a few to make some coffee and then pour a good amount of Baileys in it.
I’d like to think Jez is full of rational adults. But that would be no fun.
Anyways, shit happens, and then we move on.
Until then, here are some giraffes.
I found this link on GT earlier, read it, followed the links and read the subsequent essays and blogs. Felt like a voyeur by the time I got to Heartbreak Soup, but it was interesting.
It seems everytime I turn on the tv, there is a re-run of Glee on, and it is ALWAYS the Lady Gaga episode. I CAN’T HANDLE IT. Do you remember all of the build-up for that episode? They filmed it months before it came out, and it was sadly cheesy. I love Glee, and Lady Gaga, but it was so fake. (I know, tv…not real…) When Rachel sings with her mom, POKER FACE? Really? bluffin with my muffin…. Maybe they were only given permission for two Gaga songs and had to make the best of them. For a pivotal moment in their relationship, that song choice was so ridiculous.
I swear I am actually more positive than this… rainbows unicorns ice cream sundaes with maraschino cherries, phew, that’s better.
A double rainbow! What does it all mean?!?!
