Has more balls than anyone I've ever met.

Real Life Little Mermaid

Shiloh Pepin will turn 8 years old on Saturday, against all odds, against all reason and against what doctors told her parents the day she was born.

Shiloh was born with sirenomelia, a disorder also known as Mermaid Syndrome. The vast majority of fetuses with sirenomelia never make it to full-term. Of those that do — and scientists say their numbers are only in the hundreds throughout the world and throughout history — almost all die within hours of birth.

Real Life Little Mermaid

You can donate to this little girl! Donate!

I totally did. /sap. <3

ETA: 09/30/10

Apparently she passed away from complications of pneumonia shortly after this. October 23, 2009 :(

As per the best roommate in the world, [ profile] lord_pendulous:
Crunch is doing this event called Knockout Breast Cancer Saturday. It's a boxing event to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

I need help two ways...the first is I am raising money so any donations will help. If you decide to donate I need to get your info so I can have Crunch send you a special thank you card that you can use as a tax write off. If I collect a minimum of $250 I will be included in a special sparring class that includes a lot of cool free boxing gear including new sparring gloves. I also get to spar a few rounds against a few people including a pro boxer for one round. So yes people I am willing to get beat up to fight breast cancer.

EDIT : Thanks to a helpful Bubbles I have figured it out. If you go to PayPal and use my email address you can make a donation. For accounting purposes when you do please comment here with your name, address and donation amount so I can add it to the sheet. Comments will be screened.

Please help me literally fight against breast cancer. If you'd like please post this to your journals to help me out.

Thank you in advance for all your help. I love you all.

The other weekend at faire, Nykol lost her wand. No one ever turned it in, which is not the rennie way, so we're pretty sure some patron yoinked it.

Which sucks. She was very upset and well, we love Nykol.

Apparently EVERYONE loves Nykol. We chipped in and got her a new wand.

This was the presentation <3 (ignore my LOUD ASS cackle in the beginning)

Do I know anyone in Central New Jersey or close enough who has a car trailer that would be willing to lend it for a good cause? I have a friend who needs to tow a car to Kingston and while there is a truck available, U-Haul's trailers apparently don't work with that truck.

Well, if YOU do, could you please drop her a comment?

Thank you! :D

Lil' Jason went home.

He's acting like a normal baby.

He's gotta go in for observation, and they really can't determine what damage the lack of oxygen had on him.

But, so far. Things are looking up!

Thanks for all the good vibes guys :D

An update on this situation.

Baby Jason has opened his eyes. :)

They tried giving him a pacifier and he just kept spitting it out.

Still going for super good vibes here, people.

My coworker's niece had a baby.

She was 2 weeks early, and apparently had an undiscovered case of Placenta Praevia. Her water broke, and she began to bleed heavily, without even having labor pains.

The baby was delivered (a 7lb, 15 ounce baby boy named Jason Joseph *lastname* Jr), and he was without oxygen for approximately 15 - 20 minutes.

They're verrrry concerned about brain damage, he's attached to a million monitors and has a lil' hat on to keep his brain from swelling.

This is their first baby, and they are understandably terrified for him. She's doing fine physically, but they're very worried about little Jason.

So far, he's wiggled his toes, had his first bowel movement, and his completely sedated to keep the stress off of his brain and body.

One of the nurses said this happened to her brother, and now he's a scholar and the smartest people she knows. So there is hope. It's just slim.

So. Like I said. Good vibes. I'll keep you posted.

And here's a hint.

If you say... have a significant other. And you are in a new relationship.

And you decide for whatever lame ass fucking pathetic reason not to talk to that person for a week.

You? My friend, are an asshole.

Just saying is all.

If you think this could be about you? And you have any remote interest in actually giving a shit about this person? You better do something about it.

Material possessions aren't worth shit in a world where emotional support is key.


Step the fuck up.

/service announcement.

BTW, no one put me up to this. The person(s) that this is about just should know, and who better to do it than me, in my inordinately bitchie, pmsie and hyper way.


Well guys.

So I'm not a teacher.

But my coworker's daughter, Lauren, who I've seen grow up for about 9 years now, is your stereotypical bubbly blonde.

She goes to Wayne Valley HS, and is totally a California "Valley Girl".

She plays soccer and golf and is WONDERFUL with children and a real sweetheart.

But she's a ditz. A complete ditz.

Lauren recently took her PSATs. She texted me so upset, saying she thinks she failed them.

I was all "Damn, girl, you can't actually FAIL them, you just don't do so hot."

Well, they've changed the tests since the million years ago when *I* took them, and by god, she failed them. She got an 1190 out of 2400.

She *wanted* to be a math teacher, but she scored higher on it than 54% of the other kids.

She scored 50% higher than other kids in writing.

And *sigh* 24% higher than other kids in reading comprehension.

Her mother is in complete denial. All like "She's so smart though! She probably did bad cause she learned to read so young!"

I think it's genetics. Seriously. Patrick said "third cousin thrice removed" and Heidi said "What's a Thrice?"


Every day with Heidi is a vocabulary lesson. I have never seen anyone with such poor vocabulary work in a professional environment. I have to edit all her letters. Sometimes my aunt's too, but it's not so bad with her. Heidi I have to correct tenses and structure and pagination and... well, everything.


Lauren, because of her mother, is HELL BENT on going to college. Boston College even!! She is totally not a college type girl. And I really don't think she should be thinking about teaching math.

I think I'm going to talk to her about teaching young kids, like, Pre-K or Kindergarten or something.


I have agreed, stupidly, to tutor this child. Tonight I'm going over there and I'm going to go over the test with her (they give the test back, and the answers, tell you what you got wrong, what the real answer was, if it was easy, medium or hard, etc.) I figure it's a good study guide to start out with.

But then.. what do I do?

Her comprehension is for SHIT. Clearly she can read. But she doesn't understand ANYTHING she reads. Never has really.

What do I give a 15 year old ditz to make her read and understand? She reads fashion magazines. Like, what do I do? I need to give this kid something and test her on it to make her understand.

Stuff like this has always come so easily for me, and I just really don't know how I'm supposed to make it *click* in her head. I know I can do it. I'm determined and shit. I just don't know how to go about it.

Anyone have any books to recommend to a 15 year old with a 11 year old attention span for reading?
