Time Event
I really must get in bed, but I have to post something first.

I'm driving down the freeway, watching people break laws, treat each other with inconsideration, etc. I'm thinking...."I am SO done with this Earth....no one cares about anyone but themself...no one cares about their fellow man...respecting laws, driving carefully since a car IS a lethal weapon." It just all disgusts me. When I witness inconsiderate behavior---whether it's against me or not---it deeply pains me.

Then I get home to discover something that changed my outlook on humanity...at least for the rest of the day. *wink*

A complete stranger...a "mysterious benefactor"....an LJ "lurker" (he doesn't even have a journal, just lurks...couldn't get a code) sent me $200 to my PayPal account. With that money, I will be able to go to the ER & at least pay for some tests (chest X-rays are expensive, but every little bit helps more than I can say!). That will cover a good bit of that.

This person asked for nothing....not really, anyway...it was given "no strings attached." This person has been reading my journal for months, thinks I AM going to make it big, & just realizes I am going through a tough spot right now. He said that he was hardly rich, but he's discovered that helping others gives him great joy. He said that after sending that money to me, he was smiling for the rest of the day.
I was not asking anyone to give me any money....which makes this all the more special. And the fact that I don't know this man at all....even MORE special.

He requested 3 favors....(1) that I not feel guilty, (2) that I suggest some fun places to go at night in the OC area, & (3) that since he's hitting Knott's on Friday (lives out of town, & is in this area this week), may he please watch me perform/sing? Ummm, yeah, I think that can be arranged.

Amazing. $200. That's a lot of money. And extremely helpful. Knowing a stranger wants to help me get well means so much to me.

On the same token, I recently had 2 LJ friends also PayPal me some money...one sent me money to replace my brakes (my brakes were completely worn down, so much that there was a groove in the rotor), & the other sent me money to pay off my debt to my doctor so that I COULD get an appointment. I asked one for help (the brakes...I was desperate, & well...didn't want to die....and I am paying him back), & the other just sent me money...unasked....a total surprise. And I KNOW there's no way in HELL she'll let me pay her back. :-) I cannot thank all 3 of these "benefactors" enough. There are no words that express the extent of the gratitude that I feel. This has absolutely made my month. It has warmed my heart. It has restored some faith in humanity for me.

Again....I do not write posts hoping someone will feel sorry for me & send me money...but when they do....I am stunned & moved beyond words. It also means a lot to me when people simply WISH they could help me, or show emotional support. That means as much as money to me.
I just might find out what's wrong with me, after all...thanks to these guys.

Current Mood: grateful
I noticed something tonight.

I am wondering if I have something seriously wrong with my eye. I was taking pictures for robont tonight. I noticed that my right eye---which was the one that had the supposed "pinkeye"---now appears to be some sort of "lazy" eye. It doesn't look the same as the left eye...they look completely different. Also, with the camera on red-eye reduction, my left eye came out blue, but the right eye came out red still. Very odd.

Current Mood: confused
I cannot resist posting these pictures.

This was 1974. I think my mom looks gorgeous, my sister looks so pretty, & my pouty face is adorable (my parents called me "fussbudget" for all my first few years....I threw pretty constant tantrums...and I was apparently VERY unhappy here.)

And an upclose of my pouty face...

I think it's pretty amazing how different I look. My sister still has the same basic face...but I look almost nothing like I did when I was a kid.

Current Mood: sleepy

Not that I should really be adding new people when I can't really keep up with those I have, buuuuuuut....

Does anyone have any suggestions for new people I should connect with or just check out their journal (since there's no guarantee they'd connect back to me, of course!)? People on YOUR friends list who are not yet on mine that you suggest I check out?

Ripped from ohmyhead, who ripped it from psychomagnet.

1. If you could be instantly fluent in one other language that you currently do not read or speak, which would it be?
Spanish, definitely. Boy, would it come in handy here.

2. If you could have the starring role in any film already made, what would it be?
Oh sure, ask a struggling actress THIS question....off the top of my head: Princess Buttercup in "Princess Bride," the lead role in "Princess Diaries," Sandy in "Grease," Stephanie in "Grease 2," (shut up all yous!), Elisabeth Shue's role in "Adventures in Babysitting," Princess Leia in "Star Wars," & oooooooh so many others.

More here.Collapse )
I need some "second fiddles."

I have two tickets to the benefit concert this Saturday night, with The Tubes & Velvet Chain.

I have a couple phone calls out for friends to go with me, but no return calls yet. Any interest by anyone on LJ? Please say yes only if you actually KNOW who The Tubes are & you like them. Don't say yes just to go somewhere for free.

One of my friends I have already called might come through, so this is just a back-up list, covering my bases....

Thank you, thenonexistant! I appreciate the laughs! Truly I do! Since you brightened my day with laughter, I thought it only fair that I acknowedge your effort here! :-)

But anyone who goes out of their way to make a fake LJ just to harass someone SERIOUSLY needs to get a life. And soon. Try hard not to be so jealous of me. I know it's difficult, what with me being so cool & all. But I am SURE you have plenty to offer, too. Maybe some therapy will help you find your own attributes. The asshole side is impressive, but I'm sure there's more to you than that. :-)

Just so you know...all your responses are screened, so if you are posting them for other people's enjoyment, too, I am sorry to inform you that *I* am the only one getting the entertainment. But do keep it up...I need the laughs. Bring it. *grin*

From superstar_pig's journal:
"So...if you guys arent too busy, I wanna play something. It's called *Recommend the Piggy, and hug someone game*

It's simple.

Hug the person you think will most likely hug someone on their list. No link backs to me, just hug them and see if they hug someone. I'll just see if it spreads through the friendsfriends. "

So my hug goes out to nosunshyne!!! *huggles*
