Participating in Secret Santa is really, really easy. While we work on tidying up some wires behind the scenes making the #SecretSanta experience even easier, today we'll let you know how the whole thing works!
1) Make your wishlist at Amazon. This is how people will choose what gifts to get you. You make your wishlist at http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist
2) Soon, we'll announce where you submit your wishlist.
3) Browse and gift! It's incredibly simple. On the #GPlusSanta site, you'll be able to browse wishlists and see why your friends or followers need some extra love this season. Additionally, you can search Google+ with the hashtag #SantaGift
Stay tuned for more details in the coming days.
A good friend of mine works in a bookstore and they are trying to fundraise for one of their local schools. The great news is they were on track to win the fundraiser contest so their school gets the funds, but they just got knocked down to second place. The school with the most votes gets $10k for their library.
If you have a few moments, can you please click the below link, scroll down to the pink button on the right that says "adopt this school today" and click it. They ask you to register, but it's a quick and easy registration. It is completely free to vote, but there is also a make a donation button if you're so inclined.
Thank you so much!
That's probably my favourite line in this, but I adore so many moments in this cover of Frozen's "Let it go". Listened to it a couple times already so I could hear it with and without the video. I definitely recommend doing that so you get the full experience.
October 4-5, plus one Makeup Doodle
I got a bit of a late start on participating in this, but I'm determined to end up with 31 images by the end of October! Here's the first three images I've done. These are using my Prismacolor brush tip illustration marker.
For the first one, a friend of mine was in the midst of a tale of his woe over the loss Hawaii suffered against Alabama on Sunday. So, to help him with his grief (or maybe rub salt in the wound a bit), I gave him that doodle of an elephant spraying the University or Hawaii emblem with water. Salt does cheer people up as it turns out!
The other two are wands for characters. Such fun to doodle, so chances are there will be more wands this month! (And, of course, shameless plug - VH is a Harry Potter RPG I've been on since 2003. If you like to write, you should check it out! Sorting will be starting soon! http://www.virtual-hogwarts.org )
Fact or Fiction
It was an afternoon like any other. I was ready to enjoy a nice lunch; this time of a southwest salad, sweet tea, and an apple pie.
In my spot under the tree, salad in hand, the first soldier arrived to check out what was going on. Flitting about above the salad, it quickly left. Deciding it was no big deal, I was lured into a false sense of security. That was the beginning of the end of that tasty lunch. The soldier had gone for reinforcements.
Flitting back to retrieve what it deemed it's prize, it flew in through the window and landed on me. I froze, paralyzed as all was not well in the world of the purple duckmobile. The invader had returned!
Jumping out of the car as soon as it had released me, the situation had become dire and there was a casualty. The apple pie had been left behind and was just as enticing to the bees as it was to me. Calling for my own reinforcements, the battle was on. After much flinging of things, the apple pie was sacrificed and the bees won their prize.
The car now bee free, I pulled out, breathing slowly to soothe the panic and saw the army swarming on it's prize.
Is this fact? Or did I write a stinging fiction? [/Jonathan Frakes channeling] Hint: It's fact. I've never seen that many bees so intent on going after anyone or anything! And it was only like 5 or 6. >.>
Bella's and My New Best Friend
I took the pups out for a walk/run tonight and while I normally don't get this gung ho over a product.... if you have a dog who pulls or slips out of their collar or any number of things... get this. Seriously. It is worth it.
Most of the time when I get home, my shoulder is sore from teaching Bella to walk on a leash since she wants to use however much of her leash that I'll let her. Tonight I was able to have her on a loose leash for the majority of our time out tonight and she didn't pull it tight hardly at all once she got used to the new leader. It really was like leading a horse "where the head goes, the body goes". Even the one time she wanted to go play with a couple dogs behind a fence, there was no real pulling.
