A person of pervasive landscapes. I have an unnatural relationship with Kellog's Frosted MiniWheats. I'm addicted to coffee. Nice people turn me on. I always wet my toothbrush before using it. I paint, take pictures and love anything art related. I don't know how it happened, but I woke up one morning and fell in love with blogging. I'm a bad-ass until I see a cockroach. I love all things water sports. I'd rather die than live without music, books or Rhonda. TiVo is my homeboy. I have Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. I like to paint naked. There aren't many things greater than sliding into home plate. I have a dog named, "Sugar;" and Mondays are all about her. I am desperately trying to keep the one plant in our house alive. My brother doesn't know how to spell my name. I twitch when people use the contraction "there's" followed by a plural noun. I reserve the right to type as many run-on sentences as I damn, well please. I'm a sucker for a good panoramic view. Snow is pretty but I'd rather be at the beach. I want to meet Hugh Hefner. I love travel. I hate the mundane. I live a kick-ass life. I dance in public. I have a mole under my right boob. I have a great memory but I'm bad with names. I am obsessed with organizing. The Container Store is my Disney World. JPG Magazine is my porn. I love to vacuum. I hate doing my hair. Being a grown-up is totally overrated. Making out is the best thing in the world... better than sliding into home plate.

In the name of mild insanity with a sprinkling of deeply rooted passion for philanthropy (in this case, a local organization that I love), I'm turning to you, Internet.  See, I'm a big fan of the AssistHers here in Houston.  They do amazing work.  And I'm hoping they'll be around for many, many, many years to come because in my later stages of life I may very well need to turn to this organization.  Then again, I may not.  But you never know, right?  Regardless, they're incredibly compassionate people doing incredibly compassionate work and I support that.  So much so that I'mma throw down right now:

The AssistHers have teamed up with Tattooed For Good and are putting on a weekend long fund-raising extravaganza THIS WEEKEND: 



I only JUST found out about this.  And I intend to go.  But I had this mildly brilliant idea to spice up my attendance a little bit (do you see where this is going?  right now my Mother is reading this and thinking, "oh lord, not another one...").  Here's where you come in, Internet.  I have created a donation button via PayPal and I would very much like for you to click on it and drop a donation for the AssistHers organization.  It can be $1, it can be $500.  You name the price.  If I can raise up to or (hopefully) more than $500 before Saturday (day after tomorrow), I will get a tattoo on Saturday.  Not only will I get a tattoo, but I will make a movie of my tattoo experience and share it with all of you wonderful donors on the Internet.  SERIOUSLY.  And if for whatever reason, the donations I receive do not match my goal of $500, I'll get a piercing instead.  And either way, whatever money we collect here I will absolutely donate.  All of it.  I'm not here to make a profit.  I just want to help out the organization and perhaps score some new body art in the process.  Sound like a deal?!  C'mon Internet, don't let me down.  Step up to the plate and give a little.  And maybe, just maybe you guys can come up with enough money to make me go get another tattoo.  The gauntlet has been thrown.

*Click the button below to donate!

 





 

**Added Note: Rhonda just informed me that if we can raise double my goal of $500 (that's $1,000 y'all!) she will also get a tattoo. SERIOUSLY. So get to donating, people! It's for charity! And let's be honest, you'd totally love to see both of us get inked... make it happen.

  • THANK YOU. YOU LADIES ROCK!!

    • Re: THANK YOU. YOU LADIES ROCK!!

      Heh, hey girl!

      We appreciate *you and all you guys do. I think we'll leave the tattooing in suspense until Saturday. ;) And yeah, help us reach those goals! -- Hopefully we'll catch up with you at the event... haven't seen you in forever.
  • Does the internet get to pick the tattoo? Because if the internet gets to pick the tattoo ....
    • Nobody wants to see Jack Sparrow on Lindsey's butt.
    • I'm just crazy enough to allow the Internet to dictate whether or not I get a tattoo, but no way in Hell would I let the Internet pick the tattoo. I have a couple of designs I've been working on for a couple of years that I wasn't planing on getting so soon after the last one, but I'm willing to bump up the inking date for a good cause. =)
  • I would get Jack Sparrow on my butt if, by "Jack Sparrow," you mean "Rasta stick man on a bicycle," and if, by "butt," you mean "outer ankle above cycling sock line."
  • Well, better late than—um, I don't know. But I just donated. If you didn't get a tattoo, there's always New Orleans in May....
