Ok, fair warning, I'm going to post a few hundred items in here in the next day or so. Believe it or not, I've actually learned a new behavior. Sleep. I read about in a book when I was up all night every night for the last 200 nights, and between woots and credit card statements. It involve a long period of blinking. At first it was a painful experience. Even tried the sleep aids like drinking heavily before bedtime (3;00am) and NyQuil (3 shots) but have learned the organic method of just not setting the alarm clock for 1:00 am and staying up to watch a Reds or Bengals game. Both doctor prescribed sleep aids.
I will set a marker on the very first post of this forum so you will be able to jump to the beginning, middle and end of the chapters of the stories, comics, and just plain old news.
Remember this forum is not the IM chat line but stuff of interest to someone (namely me, but hopfully you as well?)
Props to holmesdog for all the contributions, and acemom and pooflady keeping me straight (I mean on track, I wasn't swaying to the other team, just because I'm a techno junkie geek with no life, LOL!)
Reminder, I am going to SONORA, MX in Sept. (not that you need to put this on your calendars) and would appreciate it if for those two weeks without internet, fresh water, buffalo wings and ring, tasty light beer, and cable tv. Someone actually posts stories for me to catch up on.
Lastly (sp?) ( I need a pooflady to check my typing as I either second guess myself or just suck) I am going to post two times between now and Sept. 12th a plea on every board for used presciption glasses for the kids around the world. 28,216 pairs were distributed to children and adults in Cambodia in Aug. in EIGHT DAYS!
Friends, I know this is asking a lot, and their are hundreds of charities (no millions) but all I ask is that every wooter sent in ONE pair of used glasses (USED, NO LONGER YOUR PRESCRIPTION, SOMEONE THAT GOT CONTACTS, ETC.) (sorry for the caps, just trying to point out, they are NO USE TO YOU and will not get you a free cheeseburger at McDonalds if you hord them in your nightstands)
Where was I?
Oh yeah; if every wooter sent just one pair in, just one, we would be able to help almost a QUARTER OF A MILLION KIDS in one quick shot.
Think about what you have, can't use the glasses yourself any longer, and it cost 50 cents to send one pair in the mail. No boxes needed, they will make it unbroken. US Mail is not that horrid on your stuff.
Just to spare you the agony, send them to
