I saw this on CNN today, I had no idea. This is Molly, she is a Katrina survivor, after Katrina she was attacked by a pit bull and had to have part of her leg amputated. Instead of being put down, it was determined she was a good candidate for a prosthetic leg and Molly is doing wonderfully. She now visits children in hospitals who need or will be having amputation and helps to make them feel less scared about their surgeries and she is the mascot for the non-profit Kids and Ponies.

Molly even has her own MySpace page.

She makes me happy.

Let's hear it for sporadic posting!!

Anyhow, holidays coming. My dad told us not to buy him and my mom anything this year, he wants us to save our money because of the economy. My mom isn't even sure she wants to have the traditional Christmas breakfast this year. Hooray!!! For years I have hated Christmas, all the pressures and expectations and not being allowed to do what I want and having to do the exact same thing every year for the last 20 years!!! Oh and by the way, no one ever wants to come to my house because its too far to drive, but I am expected to make the same drive to go to them. I already bought my mom and sister something, so tough nuts daddy you are getting something. Okay grousing over, that felt good.

This is my current online shopping obsession, I haven't bought any yet:

It's a Japanese daruma, they typically come with two blank eyes. The theory is you give your daruma the gift of sight by painting in the left eye and make a wish. When your wish comes true you paint in the right eye as a thank you. Learn how to make a papier-mache one here.
