I've moved this journal to www.livejournal.com/~frostedsunshine

That journal however, is not friends only, i'm not dealing with the FO hassle.

However, I will refriend everyone from here, by chance i do opt to post a FO post or something.

That, and I love you guys. =P

...Had I known how to save a life. [29 Jul 2007|09:00am]
[ mood | Completed ]

Final post of the Blogathon - 2007.

Then no more spamming my friendspage. <3.

I just want to thank everyone who's stuck with me. Kept me awake <3. Listened to me rant and ramble. And congrats to everyone who made it!!!

Thank you to my sponsors: Sally, Lauren, Ellis, and Dad -- I really wouldn't have been blogging without you guys. :)

Another special thanks to Andrew, who's been poppin' in..what a supercool monitor and cheer..dude..leader? he's been to me. :D

Once again, thanks for all the support guys, and seriously, check out invisiblechildren.com!

It's definately something worth your a few minutes of your time. At least 24 hours. :D

On that note, I'm leaving one more thank you, and I'm saying good night. Or good morning.

It's been a blast, and I'll see you all again next year (I hope to anyway! I'll be here, same bat time, same bat channel, same bat charity)..

And I would have stayed up with you all night..... [29 Jul 2007|08:25am]
[ mood | crazy ]

Wrapping up Blogathon 2007, I've compiled all the facts, video clips, etc. that I posted throughout the 24 hours about Invisible Children.

Take your time, please, and look over them? Not because I hunted them down and spent time copy/pasting links.

But because I want to share the information. <3. The stories. <3. The truth. <3.

-----
//The Global Night Commute in San Diego, California, was held in Balboa Park after it was relocated from Horton Plaza due to limited space considering the number of people expected to attend. The event was well attended, with over 6,000 people spending the night, the most out of all the host cities.

//Schools for Schools an activity ran by IC pairing Western schools with schools in Uganda
*This is billed as the first real-time humanitarian project in history.
*There is currently $1,207,376 in the system.
*There are currently 580 Schools participating.
*There are currently 13,099 Students participating.
*The next program will start in September of '07.

//100 Percent video clip!

//Invisible Children's Mission Statement (As quoted from Invisiblechildren.com)
Invisible Children improves the quality of life for war-affected children by providing access to quality education, enhanced learning environments, and innovative economic opportunities for the community.

//"Each night, children between the ages of 3 and 17, referred to as Night Commuters or Night Dwellers walk up to 12 miles from IDP camps to larger towns, especially Gulu, in search of safety."

//Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas, Veronica Mars) is the brother-in-law of Jason Russell, one of the three college students who did the original documentary, Invisible Children: The Rough Cut. Both he and his wife Amy are actively involved in the movement now.

//Peter Wentz (Fall Out Boy) and Melissa Fitzgerald (The West Wing) both supported Invisible Children during the "Displace Me" weekends.

//A video featuring Peter Wentz spreading the support can be found here!

//21 years. For the people of Northern Uganda, it's how long the Lord's Resistance Army has had power over their area. That the LRA has invaded and abducted their children, both boys and girls. For them to be soldiers. For them to be sex slaves. To attack and kill friends and family. To carry things that a youth body shouldn't have to carry

//War violence experienced by abductees
Witnessed a killing - 78%
Tied or locked up - 68%
Received a severe beating - 63%
Forced to steal or destroy property - 58%
Forced to abuse dead bodies - 23%
Forced to attack a stranger - 22%
Forced to kill a stranger - 20%
Forced to kill an opposing soldier in battle - 15%
Forced to attack a family member or friend - 14%
Forced to kill a family member or friend - 8%

//Veronica Mars Public Service Announcement on Invisible Children!

//Veronica Mars featured an Invisible Children themed episode, "I Know What You'll Do Next Summer". For spoilers sake, I won't post a summary. If you'd like a summary, comment.

Invisible Children. It's what's up. [29 Jul 2007|07:55am]
[ mood | hopeful ]

Final hour guys.

We're into the final hour.

Remember what we all came out here and blogged our booties off for.

I did it for Invisible Children. Check out my sponsors on the side. They had some pretty good causes too.

Remember all the facts. The children in Northern Uganda are victims of horrible crimes. They're abducted to be child soldiers, sex slaves, and used against their free will.

We're here to make a choice. We're here to give them a voice.

Seriously though, check out Invisiblechildren.com

Keep it bookmarked. Share it with your friends. Put it in your profile, your myspace, your blogger, whatever.

Spread the word.

If you're interested in pledging anything to Invisible Children, please click the button below. Otherwise, scan down, and continue reading my ramblings. It's about a monkey.
Sponsor Moi?

So, I'm watching this cartoon right, about this British lion. And these aliens. And there's this monkey in a superhero costume. And I'm not really sure what's happening, but the lion is yelling and chasing the monkey. And the monkey has an "M" on his chest. So we'll call him MIGHTY MONKEY... (hmm, no, mighty mouse could get upset) MISTER MONKEY. Yes. MISTER MONKEY. So MISTER MONKEY goes and has to save this emo girl and some old man. While being chased by a lion.

GLEE! Dexter's Lab came on! I haven't seen this in YEARS. I didn't know it still came on. You've gotta wake up to watch this?? Will 2 Stupid Dogs come on??

2.5 hours.

We're winding down. Sleep is near. *sniffs* It smells good.

After the blogathon (and about 48 hours of sleep), I'm switching my journal back to friends only. If you'd like to be apart of that, hit me up? Otherwise, it's been fun!

I've found singing is a great way to perk up.

Oh, how nice! The sun is up! ... Again.

This is TWO sunrises i've seen now without sleeping. :P

Check it. I got my tarot readings. Check out the results!

It's time for the five thirty post. Which means we're down to three-point-five hours left.

Which also means, if I hear ONE more justin timberlake song I'm going to explode.

My head is already pounding beyond belief, how the radio is playing Justin's h..i don't think it's fair to say hits.

[ mood | indifferent ]

As I was telling surria, I went into the kitchen to get a drink to attempt to wake me up some more. And of course, for those of you who don't know, my dogs are princesses.

We keep the TV on for them at night to help them sleep better. Especially when there's a storm.

Anyway, so I got no sleep last night. And I've been blogging since 9 SATURDAY morning.

And I go for my liquid poison of choice. (Mmm, Pepsi).

And there's a frakin' commercial on for a Temperpedic Sleep Bed.

With customer reviews of it's comfiness, and how you should be getting eight hours of sleep a night.

*heads desk repeatedly*

it's for a good cause...! :P!!

Nah, I'm fine now, this is the easy part.

The photoscavenger hunt is halfway over. Fortunately, I'm halfway done. I've got all my photos taken. Now I just need to resize them and put them on my computer!

The pictures will be posted AS SOON as I upload them. Which should be 2:30. Golly, this is going by a lot faster now!

Okay, resizing awaits!

The part of you that's drifting over me! [29 Jul 2007|12:58am]
So. First photo scavenger hunt!

How was it? Totally fun! Of course, it'll take the next thirty minutes to upload the pictures and link them..because I need to resize them. *bonks self on nose with newspaper*

Silly me for not playing with my camera BEFORE hand.

But I guess that really can be considered a practice run, because it looks like we're getting together some other Blogathoners to do one in teams.

If you're interested, go http://community.livejournal.com/blogathonlj/56784.html!!! We're in this together from here out guys..8 hours left, 2/3rds done!
