The folks at one of my favorite websites, Television Without Pity have gotten behind a wonderful project to help rebuild the collections of some Mississippi gulf coast libraries that had their collections heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina: The Dewey Donation System.
Check it out!
(And the Gulfport Library in Biloxi, Mississippi, can expect their copies of The Swiss Family Robinson, Jane Eyre, and Mrs. Dalloway in about a week's time!)

After a fun but probably ill-advised day of retail therapy today, I came home to find my monthly reminder for this goal in my mailbox! Oh, what to do.
So, I browsed the Donors Choose Website and found this proposal , which needed only a little bit of funding to push it to its goal. Well, it was less than one of the shirts I got at Nordstrom’s semi-annual sale, so it seemed churlish to say no.
So, a bunch of Bronx high schoolers get to clean up their community garden. Next year, I guess, as I’m pretty sure everyone’s done for the year now.
Here's your opportunity to give something to Donors Choose yourself!

(Hint: It's newsworthy.)
It was hilarious. She was on the bed and she didn't run away when I went back to get ready for bed, so I scratched her behind the ears & then started petting her. She looked concerned but calm.
The funniest reaction was Abby's. She walked into the bedroom, took in this tableau and was all, "Who in the what in the how in the WHA?" Seriously, she looked shocked, if a cat can look shocked.
Anyway, a day of progress all around. (Since I stuck with South Beach.)

I weigh 207.5 lbs. Two Hundred Seven and a Half!
How in the heck did that happen?
Poor diet? Check. Lack of exercise? Check.
OK. It stops now. Ye Gods.
If my friend Larry can lose 28 lbs (and counting), surely I can do at least as well. SO, off we go.
