Your Turn

I don't think I have done this for a year or maybe more, but today, the place is yours. Plug whatever you need to or say what you want to say. Tell people about a favorite site or place or video. Anything you want. Have at it.

I am walking tomorrow in the Briggs & Al's Run & Walk for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

Children's Hospital saved my little boy's life when he had 4 heart surgeries - 2 of them open-heart. My nephew, who was born in April, had spinal meningitis that same month and was treated at Children's. My oldest nephew, age 17, was just diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. We have lots of reasons to support this great, non-profit, hospital.

I don't have a lot of sponsors so I'm just going to throw the link to our FirstGiving page here. Times are tough so I know a lot of people can't give which I think is why I don't have a lot of sponsors.

I don't know how to make it a clickable link.

Thank you!

Happy thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!

Ms Cool said...

OK - I'm trying the clickable link:

Sponsor Kaelin, Aidan and Huck for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin walk!

Hope that works and thanks.

In less than two weeks, I will be leaving to backpack through Southeast Asia for seven months. Alone.

The goal of my site is to show other women that solo travel can be safe, easy and incredibly liberating!

www.adventurouskate.com

I'm trying to make it as a full-time freelance writer and web site developer as well. I am TRYING SO HARD to make it work financially.

I hope you join me on my travels!

Also: @adventurouskate on Twitter!

If you have more time than money these days, maybe you would consider being a child advocate? I've been volunteering as a Guardian ad Litem for a few years. You can directly influence a child's present and future. http://www.guardianadlitem.org/

I'm just pimping my Twitter, since I use it at least 40 hours a week while I'm at work.

This is me!

I also work at an alt-weekly called The Georgia Straight in Vancouver, B.C. Read it. It can be fun at times.

@Adventurous Kate Oh man backpacking alone in Asia? that's so badass, I'm definitely going to visit your website.

As for me...I'm a mechatronics engineering university student with lack of sleep hoping to travel to Germany to learn about nanotechnology but it's really expensive so we'll see.

I discovered Korean dramas over the summer. Boys Over Flowers is the greatest television show I've ever seen, and my new favorite actor is Lee Min Ho. You can watch Asian dramas legally with English subs at mysoju.com (I'm not affiliated with this or anything, just spreading the word to anyone interested!)

Adventurous Kate said...

@jess -- You sound FAR more badass than me! Holy crap! Have you looked into Fulbright scholarships or other grants? That's a dream of mine someday.

You and many other CDANers would enjoy this story I read on Jezebel:

How Can I Keep My Daughter Loving Science?

KLM said...

@Adventurous Kate - I spent a good deal of time travelling across Southeastern Asia (not all at one time). You will have a blast! Good luck! Oh - and I promise if you say "Gam ern" in Vietnam, you will be the hit of wherever you are. It means thank you, but it really cracks the locals up (because it is sort of formal and seldom used).

Jennifer said...

I saw this posted on FB the other day. People are being asked to wear purple on Oct. 20th to honor the 7 homosexual boys who committed suicide after homophobic bullying. This looks like it's a link to the site that started it all, but it is also circulating Facebook.

@Sweetiebrid I watched "1 Litre no Namida" and I cried my eyes off japanese and korean doramas are really really sad and they seem so real.

@Adventurous Kate There's no way I'm that much of a badass but thanks. Going to Germany would be awesome but it's not just me, we're a group of students with a project so getting a Fulbright scholarship is more difficult.

@Sweetiebird: You have to watch Ashita no Kita Yoshio on mysoju. It's very good. Funny and sad at the same time. With my favorite actor Ryuhei Matsuda. He's a hottie! Here's the site with all the parts.

Jamie's Girl said...

K, I'll comfort you by saying this. My husband and I spent close to $150K trying to hav eour one son, and we will never have any more children. This one son is Autistic, and unless a baby drops out of the sky, we won't have another child.

So basically, you are saving yourself about $300,000. So enjoy the savings and kiss them for me!!! I'm envious!

Queen of Bruises--As a New Yorker now unfortunately living in a tiny half-deserted town, I thank you for that video.

sunnyside1213 said...

I have nothing to talk about, but I am enjoying everyone's comments and will spend the weekend looking at every link. Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian family.

sunnyside1213 said...

Also, Adventurous Kate, I am so envious. Have a great time.

ardleigh said...

PLEASE people before you buy a pet store puppy or kitty, PLEASE think of adopting from www.petfinder.com.
You go to the site put in what type of animal, breed, age and you will get results according to your local adopting places.


Adopting a pet can be the best thing you've ever done and give you the greatest result.

sunnyside1213 said...

You can't change the world by saving one animal, but for that one animal, you change it's world.

With all the terrific, altruistic sites being listed here, I'm embarrassed to offer my own blog: Crazed Celebrity. Photos of celebrities looking crazed, with commentary. If you want to procrastinate, and wonder what Jennifer Aniston looks like with her eyes bugged out, check it out!

Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canadians! Thank you Enty!

Not *every* tweet is about blip.fm. Sometimes I type something I believe to be pithy.

Love the sites!

There is a new start-up site:
www.melissaannmyers.com

I've been contributing DWTS recaps for this past season, so maybe I'm a little biased but it's one of my top two favorite sites, along with CDAN!

Thanks Enty for "Your Turn" - I was just thinking the other day if you were going to do one of those again soon!

i am enjoying reading what everyone has to say, 'no holds barred'.

i am a canadian and today my husband, two kids and myself are heading over to a friends house for turkey dinner. i'm bringing a giant costco pumpkin pie and whipped cream.

i was born in canada but raised in the usa, and when i first moved back to canada (to marry my husband), it was so fricken weird to me that you did thanksgiving before HALLOWEEN! i couldn't fathom it. hubby had no family around either, so for years we both just grabbed OT shifts at work for extra money. anyway, when our daughter was 3 i realized she would grow up with no thanksgiving memories :( so that year i invited all of our friends who didn't have any family in our area and the first annual Thanksgiving Dinner for Wayward Souls was born. Even though we are going to a friends house, I'm thankful I have friends that are like family to me, I always call my close friends my chosen family. We've made some pretty strong roots here and as someone who moved A.LOT. when I was a kid that means a lot to me.

@adventurous kate: my i ask how you are paying for your journey? id love to do something like that but have no idea how people afford it. do you have a crazy savings account?

Ms Cool said...

I don't know if this person will read it but I want to thank the anonymous donor for our walk and to support Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. We had a lovely day for a walk!
