Sometimes people are too suspicious. My friend and I decided to buy a whole pile of cheap flowers to give out to people, but so many people just stared or laughed at us. Or ignored us. However, I know this is unlikely, but if the guy who bought us more flowers reads this - we totally love you! And you could just be in this community.

Link: Tree Sweater.

For the list of Coolest Things Ever: Erika, a blogger, had the urge to knit a cute little sweater for a sad urban tree, complete with a sleeve for a branch. A photograph of the tree sweater has since appeared on the cover of a newspaper, and the sweater has survived a pruning. Erika has supplied a pattern for this knitting project, and envisions a mass treesweatering project among many knitters this next April's Arbor Day. Sound like fun?

Birthday Request

Hi all! My best friend is a great guy & it was recently his birthday. But he is in bootcamp (Navy) right now and we cant celebrate with him. I'm wanting to get a ton of people to wish him a happy birthday on my journal. I know none of you know him - but - if you could go to my main journal (xanthia444)and make a comment on the most recent entry for him, I'd appreciate it!

I'm trying to lift his spirits so I'm going to print it out and send it to him. Thank you in advance for those of you that do it!

A good friend of mine is a licensed scuba diver, and he's planning on joining the coast guard. Since he enjoys the ocean so much and he's leaving pretty soon, I ordered a bag of aquamarine stones - aquamarine is the gemstone that is representative of Pisces, which is his zodiac sign, and it's also said to protect it's wearer while they're traveling on water. I gave him the aquamarine and a CD I made for him as sort of a graduation/late birthday/you're a good friend and I'm going to miss you present. I thought the aquamarine might be a little out there, and that he might wonder what in the world I was talking about with all this gemstone crap, but he seemed to really appreciate the gesture. I just hope this lets him know how much I'm going to miss him and that I hope he is safe while he's out there.

I guess this probably isn't the right community for this, but I thought you all might enjoy it anyway. I'm a senior in college, and I wanted to tell a few of my professors how much I really appreciate what they do. I wanted it to be anonymous, though; I didn't want them to think I was sucking up to get a good grade or something. So I made a few duct tape roses and attached a little note with a message written with that professor in mind. You know, "your dedication makes you an inspiration to your students," etc. I snuck around this evening and left them outside the offices. I sort of hope they'll mention it in class tomorrow, just so I can hear their reactions. :) Here are a couple of pictures.Collapse )

Glamour Bomb Idea -- Cheese Weasel Day

This was to be posted to Glamour Bombs, but I see the community was deleted! (So I just created a community to relace it glamour_bombs... Consider this an announcement.)

In the meantime, as this is time-sensitive, I'll post it here. (And besides, you can always do this bomb on someone you know, which is what happened to start the whole holiday.)

I didn't make this one up, but hopefully it'll cause as much joy for others as it has for my friends and I...

Who brings the cheese on April 3rd?
The Cheese Weasel
He's not a silly bunny or a reindeer or a bird,
He's the Cheese Weasel
He's got a cute black tail
And tiny buck teeth
He doesn't bring fish, and he
Doesn't bring beef
So you'd better be good if you wanna get some cheese
From the Cheese Weasel.

Here's a link to the explanation of the Cheese Weasel's origins.

Have fun with it! See that the Cheese Weasel makes plenty of stops today!

One thing I like to do from time to time is collect peoples old suitcases and duffle bags that they no longer use. I then donate them to a foster care agency I found a few years ago. Children in foster care usually take all of their belongings to their new homes when placed in trash bags. I think that is horrible. So I donate as many suitcases and duffle bags as I can... so they have something to take their things in. :-)
