Does anyone know of anyone who has a wii they want to give away, trade, or sell? Jenny wants to buy a Wii, but only for less than $79.99 (gamestop price). Also I kind of want a ps3 or xbox (slim with wifi +backwards compatible) because I am an awful person lol.

STEP ONE

☆ Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered ... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

☆ If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

☆ Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO

☆ Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

☆ If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

☆ Enough money for Sam to get his crown ($600), a check up ($100), a chiropractic exam ($40+), a
massage ($65), a new dresser ($100?) (larger) and some misc items that he's mentioned wanting.

☆ For Sam to be happy.

☆ To get Sam on medication for depression.

☆ Getting him a good job with insurance.

☆ cheap ($0.59) pig ears for Zeek/catnip for Eevee.

☆ Popcorn that comes in a tin ($5) I hate caramel corn...There are websites that ship popcorn treats world wide that made my butter and cheese popcorn, but I dunno how much that is.

☆ A window breaker/seatbelt cutter for an emergency in the car. (Target maybe has them) These are for when you go off a bridge, they break the window or if the seatbelt gets stuck you can cut yourself free fast. Also maybe something that inflates to help us to the surface. Also for the car a manual tire pressure gauge such as this: http://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Automotive-TG1-Pencil-Pressure/dp/B00280BL9O

☆ uh...whatever.

☆ man..I just want money for getting sam taken care of really...;;

☆ Please donate to your local animal shelters.
I also second this. ANY donation to a local shelter is a good one. When Diana and I got Eevee chipped and UTD on her shots yesterday at the animal place, we had the pleasure of seeing: A HUGE BURLY MANLYMAN take home the sweetest little kitten ever, and two guys adopt the sweetest Golden Retriever/Basset mix. Seeing that dog's face as she realized she wasn't going back in the cage, but was going home with these guys? I literally started crying. PLEASE donate/adopt from your local shelters. <333 It's a great cause.

SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

Originally posted by darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)


Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.


This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.


It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

You are Scrupulous, Curious, and Cooperative.

Scrupulous

You are an honest, fair person. You don't lie or cheat to get ahead. You treat others with respect and hope for the same in return.

You do not feel that you are above the rules that everyone else follows; you are definitely not willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead.

Curious

You like to get to the bottom of things. You're not content knowing what someone did; you want to know why they did it.

You don't simply take things as they are and move on; you're not content skimming along on the surface; you don't feel you're wasting time by digging for the meaning of things.

Cooperative

You enjoy teamwork, play well with others, and prefer getting along to winning.

You're not compelled to win every contest nor to be right all the time.

Responsible

You fulfill your obligations and responsibilities, are true to your word, and generally obey the rules. While the majority of those who have a high score on the "responsible" trait enjoy traveling, they are usually very happy to return home — and don’t mind staying put for a while.

You're opposed to making hasty decisions, you don't insist that you're above the rules, nor do you feel compelled to color outside the lines.

Prudent

You look before you leap, think before you act, consider what you're about to say before you open your mouth to speak; that's why you rarely have to eat your words.

You usually don't get excited easily or blurt out the first thing that comes to mind without considering the consequences.

Calm

You rarely become irritated, generally accept people as they are, take things as they come, and feel relaxed in most situations.

You do not let a minor annoyance escalate to a confrontation. You don't regularly snap at those around you or fly off the handle with little provocation.

Reserved

You are somewhat shy, or at least unwilling to spend all your time socializing. With you it's true that "still waters run deep," which is why many of your acquaintances never get to know you well.

You are not always ready to talk at the drop of a hat. Whether you're in the office or at a party, you're not likely to be found gabbing away in the middle of a group of people.

Discreet

You tend to hold onto your thoughts until you have something important to say, and even then you're not comfortable imposing your ideas on others unless you know they're truly interested.

You don't enjoy talking for the sake of talking, and you have no desire to be the center of attention.

Conscientious

You feel it's important to work according to a plan and finish every task, to do things correctly and thoroughly.

You are not the kind of person who abandons a project before finishing it, or slacks off when you've lost interest.

Unflappable

You are not a slave to your emotions. It takes a lot to upset or unnerve you. That's why you're a good person to have around in a crisis.

You don't let it all hang out, which means that those around you often don't know the pressures you're under or what you're going through. You're not the kind of person people run from in a crisis.

Do you believe society will ever truly overcome racism?


Honestly, not really. People are afraid of change, they are afraid of what's different. If there wasn't racism against skin color, there would be racism of other kinds; whether it's hair color, gender choices, etc. To give another far flung example, say in a thousand years we make it to space, and meet a friendly new race; some people would probably be racist against them.

As long as there is ignorance, there will always be hatred following it.
