A Whole Lotta Love

Awhile back, before I left town, I did this, commemorating my 500th post. 

I did a game where I would contribute a dollar for every comment. I used to select the winning commenter's favorite charity.

I ended up with 49 comments. I decided to make the contribution an even $50, because I have issues with even numbers being cooler than odd numbers. 

So, imagine one of those comically oversized big checks made out to the Bay Area Food Bank, which serves the Central Gulf Coast of Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi.

They are presently helping out families who are needing food due to lost  income from the BP Environmental Disaster. I'm honored to help out such a worthy cause.

There was a block of voters, courtesy of my friend Muliebrity Smith, who all voted to support this organization. However, the official winning vote was Kristin, who does not have a link, unless I missed it in my caffeine-induced haze.

I'm honored and grateful that I have this opportunity to blog, and that I am able to provide the universe with some of the comfort and joy you've brought me.

Too mushy? I'll leave you with this:

What do you think this is?

The brown part looks like a vagina cozy.......and the red thing on a stick looks like a.......behind the ear cleaner.

Wow, I saw on twitter where it had been made but um, not sure what I thought about it then but seeing it, thats just funny.

I think it's a hitchhiking snail.

A turtle with that rope used to make Jesus sandals glued to its shell??? Oh, holding a hobo sack on a stick and carrying his very, very, VERY small teddy bear?

Great charity, btw. Congrats Kristin!

I missed the charity post! Darn kids! Congrats on 500! We're glad you blog!

heh! vagina cozy! -- I love that because I'm twelve. If it's something really useful and not genitalia related, I'll be disappointed. Looks like your vuh-jay has decided to hike her way outta hrere!

If you let her go and she returns to you, you know she's yours. If she doesn't, she never was.

What in the world is a vagina cozy? I thought I had heard everything when blogging introduced me to vajazzling!

You stole a beanie off a Goth runaway who was living in the canyon below?

Thank you for helping out such a great organization, too!

Does the tiny do-rag on a stick have anything to do with yoga and your glasses?

I wish I would have thought of something embarrassing to photograph Paul doing. That was fun. He spends so much time wearing *those shorts, ::shudder:: it seems that there is very little that could really embarrass him.

Thanks for your generosity, Nancy! Now get off the computer (or smart phone) and talk to your mother!
