Mine was in soft focus, too! And I don't know how well it shows up, but the background fades to a soft peachy pink. If only they could have included a lipstick or perfume sample! 
 
Huh.  On the left we have what Candidate Jerry Hill sends to me. On the right is what he sends to Caryn. Anyone spot a difference?

Kevin before the big ride. I expect him to post triumphantly from mile 100 any minute now.

Have I mentioned that Kevin is about to ride 150 miles in a single weekend? I cannot promise a photo of another bear-fighting face, but if I get something similar I will post it. In the meantime, here are his handsome face and his android bike jersey on his fundraising page for the ride. I don't think he's asked anyone to donate yet, so I am asking.

I have lost track of who first shared this with me. It was just politely sitting there in its tab waiting to bowl me over with its awesomeness.

Spoiler and complaint: As enchanted as I am by this blog and the project, the blurb is misleading. No one involved seems to have drawn any kind of actual relationship between Rapunzel's braid-to-tree connection and the rotational circumference of Baba Yaga's house. Personally I'm pretty sure Rapunzel should keep her braid far away from anything that rotates, and extra far from other witches' homes.

Found a cute ski jacket, but of course it doesn't come in my size.

I wanted one of those dolls so bad when I was 11.

More rage faces and broken hearts by Joanna. It's not snooping when someone leaves their diary open on the floor, right?

I have to +1 anything that involves the term "rage faces."

So I talked to Kevin about 2/3 of the way through his 74-mile bike ride today. I'd been figuring he would be at about the halfway point at that time and had been planning to take the girls up and back down the gondola and then meet him at the finish line. 

"Hey," I said, "Since you're going to get back soon, do you think you'd want to ride the gondola with us? Or will you just need to collapse?" 

"I just keep feeling better and better. By the time I make it to the finish, I will be ready to FIGHT A BEAR!" he replied. 

So we waited for him to get back, and then on the gondola I asked him to make his bear-fighting face. Here he is, ready to fight a bear.

Did the bear make a Kevin face?

I don't know how many kids are currently diagnosed with autism, and I don't think blue lights are going to help anyone, but this is useful autism awareness.

"Behavior is communication. That's it. That's all. That's everything.

If you put your mental backbone into behavioral awareness, into trying to understand why a person with autism, or a person associated with autism, behaves the way they do -- if you can make yourself truly aware of that person's needs -- then that is when the connections will happen, that is when you will make a difference, that is when awareness can leapfrog goodwill, and translate into real-world benefits and positive actions."
