2007 Blogathon: Guillain Barré Syndrome
29 July 2007 @ 07:43 pm
Now that the Blogathon is over on my part, and I've had some sleep and a bit to eat, I'm finding myself checking in here and stalking the Blogathon's site for the B schedulers. (They're almost done.)

The 'thon is over, yes. While I trooped through many of the posts, I'm finding myself missing it... The community effort, commenting, getting comments, etc.

I did mention that perhaps I would turn this into a support blog for those with GBS/CIPD, but I'm afraid the audience is very tiny and I am afraid no one would participate. I think I'll keep it open though, and still post interesting tid-bits or articles I can find on the syndromes. Maybe over time I can turn it into something more, or tuck it away for another Blogathon. I would definitely do it again, but I would also definitely plan better!

2007 Blogathon: Guillain Barré Syndrome
29 July 2007 @ 06:00 am
I'd like to thank those few that really truly supported me. For real. Even with one pledge, this was all really worth it. I know it sounds corny, but I learned a lot about myself through this, and became more aware about charities in general just by reading through the posts during slow times.


Pledgers before/during the 'thon:

yohshee
Sandi & Ed
Trish & Joe
Charlene
Steven's Hospital
Robert
TG
miriampenguin (Check out her Blogathon: miriamblogathon)

THANK YOU!




Also a big thanks to my monitor who gave me support through and through: asphyxi!





"...Ladies and Gentlemen, take my advice..."

"...Pull down your pants and slide on the ice..."






I go die on bed now...

Congrats Alex! He was the closest with 99 bears as his guess, for the How Many? post I made. Excluding those on the top shelf, there were 96 total bears. Doesn't seem like that many, huh? Don't forget to email me with your address Alex, so I can get this little guy out to you. (tink.astoria@gmail.com)

As for the Peace Bear Buddie, in this post, it will be going to the Children's Intensive Care Unit at Steven's Hospital, woot!

...this article dealing with how time may not exist might be a bit too deep. The general concept of this is how at the very base of things, time doesn't really exist. Time only seems to exist on larger scales. One example they use to describe this is "surface of the water", the water has no real surface on the scale of atoms, but when you look at the water in a larger perspective, it exists. Have fun trying to prevent your brain from exploding on this one.

People have strange ideas for what they want to put on their bodies. Here is a guy who gets the text of a blue screen of death as an arm tattoo. Heres the link.

This post is dedicated to the Dr. that has kept me alive through these posts, Dr. Pepper.

And just because it's the 42nd post, I figured I'd give a shout out to the late Douglas Adams.

"Yeah...I'm going to have to ask you to go ahead and move your desk... as far up against that wall as you can go...oh and, I'll just take that stapler..."


This home stretch is killing me. I'm hallucinating about sleeping.
