you asked for it

Ok, some of my two readers have asked me to put up pictures, wondering what I look like. So, I put up one of the only pics that I have....which is now my official HSH picture...see it? The one Grandma J calls my, "Pineapple Princess" picture....because it was taken with one of the floral crowns on my head.

There was a time in my life, when I wore cute clothes and shopped at the Liz Claiborne store...now, thanks to an increased size, compliments of Marble Slab Creamery, I usually can be seen wearing my old maternity clothes....as you can imagine, that doesnt make me want to jump in front of the camera. So, there are few pictures of me....

HOWEVER, on Friday, you may get to see me, in my finest. Finest meaning, I took Pooper to do a video clip for the Stand Up 2 Cancer benefit (airing on all major networks this Friday)....and I had laryngitis, and my voice sounded like a tranny smoker (no offense to transvestites or smokers, or those who are both.) And, while he was doing his interview, and recounting his journey, and listing off all of his friends in Heaven, I began to cry, just a bit. And then, the directors asked me to come stand in front of the cameras....

Normally, I would have been all hammy and got on my soapbox and told them about childhood cancer, and how the kids are usually left out of research dollars, blah blah blah.

But, I was off track, crying, and trying to say very little, as my voice was totally gone...and when your voice is gone, and your crying, trust me, you sound hideous.

But, it's not about me...I realize that, so, Im encouraging you watch, to have fun laughing at me, to be touched by the many stories of bravery and loss, for you to say, "wow, Pooper is so handsome!"....just watch!

And if you would join our team, I would be grateful. We are one of the largest, and the top teams will be recognized during the broadcast. Just go to www.su2c.org When you join our team, you can put "kids with cancer" in the search engine. The bald boy with the feeding tube....that's Pooper, just a few years ago. Please join us.

And for those wondering...those heading up SU2C heard us, and pediatric organizations are now represented!!

If you can also donate, I would be very appreciative. I know times are tough, but you can only imagine how tough it is for kids fighting cancer. If you can give big, please do. If you cant, please consider giving up something...a latte, a lunch, turn your computer off for a day and donate the reduction in your electric bill (LOL, sorry, I realize that would be 1/2 a cent.)....Clean out your car or between the cushions of your furniture...and donate the change. Do I sound desperate for donations? In all reality, these kids are desperate for donations. Really.

Thanks.

This post was such a mix of emotions for me! Heartbreaking, for obvious reasons, exciting, because I may actually see what you look like other than the Pineapple Princess photo, and funny because of the tranny smoker line.

And now, I am going to go make a donation to the cause.

Good ol' Pooper and his pineapple princess momma! Can't wait to see you on Stand Up to Cancer!

Grandma J said...

I've donated and left a message for Pooper.
I won't get to see the telethon. I will be traveling. Please taple the interviews if you can.
I can't wait to hear Pooper advocate for childhood cancer. And I can't wait to hear you too.
