Philanthropy.....

....go over to Ali Edwards' blog to donate to her charity, Autism Speaks. This is a contest through Kevin Bacon's charity Six Degrees. If she winds up with the most donations, Kevin Bacon will double her donations. How cool is that?

...anyway, there is so much happening around here lately. Some of it fantastic, like getting my green belt in karate (I'm at the end of the first half of my karate training! Six more belts to black!). But some of it blows chunks...like never getting a moment to spend at home. Or better yet, some of the dishonest people who's actions have come to light in the past few weeks. It's totally heart-breaking to me that there are so many people who make such awful awful choices. In the past few weeks at work, we've found out that someone was stealing from the company. This seems to be an affliction of my industry. I can't go into any further details, but it's enough to break my heart that someone would be so awful. When I think it can't get any worse...it does. I'm not sure whether stealing is a heftier crime or lying about your spouse passing away. We had that, too. Just when I think I'm not really any better than anyone else....I suppose I am better than some people, eh?

....gotta love the shatterin' of my rose-colored glasses..... piss me off.....

You just need some rosé filled glasses, or maybe a nice blush. :)
