The American Red Cross is sponsoring a national "Holiday Mail for Heroes" campaign to receive and distribute holiday cards to servicemembers and veterans both in the United States and abroad.

Holiday Mail for Heroes, which began Tuesday, Veterans Day, is a follow-up to the 2007 effort that resulted in the collection and distribution of more than 600,000 cards to hospitalized servicemembers. This year's program will expand its reach to not only wounded servicemembers but also veterans and their families. The goal is to collect and distribute 1 million pieces of holiday mail.

"As we enter this holiday season-a time to celebrate with family and friends-it's important to remember the thousands of men and women who serve our nation in harm's way and those who are recovering in military and veterans hospitals," said Army Col. Norvell V. Coots, commander, Walter Reed Health Care System. "The Holiday Mail for Heroes program is a wonderful outreach effort and a great way to acknowledge the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform."

Holiday cards should be mailed to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD. 20791-5456

All cards must be postmarked no later than Dec. 10. Cards should not be mailed or delivered to Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

NEW JERSEY > SARAH PALIN


...I mean, not that we didn't know this BEFORE. But still, AWESOME!! Plus, anything that makes me go, "BITCH, YEAH!!!!!" really loudly just has to be shared. :D
splits_thesky: (Default)
So, school starts tomorrow, joy. I'm totally not ready, having spent these last two weeks since my summer courses ended just, basically, lying around and being a bum. But, as I am this, like, perpetual student, I figure getting back into the swing of things shouldn't be too bad. IDK, we'll see, I guess - right now I'm just crossing my fingers that I don't completely die of work.

Anyway, before I slip back into the endless void that is college, I did mention that I have some more Olympics stuff to share, and SO I DO! )


Uhhh, that's it. I mean, for now, anyway, because it seems like the interwebz are right there with me in the refusal to accept that the Olympics are over. Maybe if we just don't shut up about them, it'll be like we really didn't have to wait at all!!!! *delusional*
splits_thesky: ('lympics: just yelling at each other)
;__;


...I've already started rationalizing it to myself, though it's mostly just things like, "Now he and the Thorpedo can hang out all the time!!" ....DUDE, if both of them show up next time to watch that Phelpsy boy swim, I will literally KEEL OVER AND DIE. DIE, I TELL YOU!!! And I'd be the most excited anyone has probably been about their death, too.


You guys, the Olympics is EATING MY LIFE. The other day I was telling [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 how I felt like I needed another great fandom, since I've sort of been floating in between 'em lately. But, um, I think this might be it?? I DON'T KNOW, YOU GUYS, but my brain is all 'OLYMPICSOLYMPICSOLYMPICS!!!1!!11!!!1!' all the time now. Like, okay, when I take the train into school (what up, summer classes??), everyone's always reading the paper, right?? I've started peering at the articles people are reading over their shoulders (because I am nothing if not creepy), and then getting irritated when the papers aren't, like, ALL OLYMPICS ALL THE TIME. I actually find myself going "WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OLYMPICS???/??" a LOT. Uhhh.

And also, um, I have a burning desire for fic (and fanvids, but let's not even go into that). Like, I know, creepy RPF/RPS or whatever, and I know there's some fic, but, uhh, what I really want is some Michael Phelps/Jason Lezak, in which Michael's a huge cuddleslut, and tends to, like, glomp (...wow, it's been a while since I've pulled that out of my vocabulary) his teammates and give them sloppy, ecstatic kisses (on the cheek or on the lips, YOU DECIDE!!) when they win. And secretly, both him and Jason have these huge crushes on each other, but they both think the other doesn't reciprocate (because, like, of the gay thing or the age thing or the married thing), and then there are SHENANIGANS, like when Team USA has their EPIC RELAY WIN (!!!!!), after the medals and all the press and all, and it's just them, they're still super excited and can't stop grinning, and Michael's like, "YOU GUYS", and tackles all of them, and then gets to Jason and is all, "AND YOU", and just plants one on him, good and thoroughly. And when he pulls back, Michael looks incredibly nervous, like this, too, counts for a gold medal. But Jason just grins, slow and lazy, and Michael visibly relaxes, his anxiety melting away. They just stand there for a moment, beaming at each other like idiots, until Cullen says, "God, you guys make me sick". "Disgusting," Garrett chimes in, but they're both smiling, and when Michael cackles and grabs them to waltz around the room, all of them twirl giddily until the dizziness makes them stop.


.....uhhh. Yeah, so.

...and that's not something I say a lot.


Also:

Dear middle-aged men,

PLZ STOP HITTING ON ME, IT'S NOT ENJOYABLE. You are, what, 30-something?? I'm 19. I can't even drink!!
And, even if I was your age, in what POSSIBLE context is going up to someone and saying "Hey, sexy" really, REALLY skeezily appropriate?? Especially if that person is just sitting at the train station waiting for her mom to pick her up, especially especially if she is also drawing a picture of Brendon Urie as a unicorn (hahaha, for realz, guys, I'll scan it in soon).
And it's not even confusion - I don't look any older than I am, if anything, I look younger (true fact, a lot of the time when I tell people I'm a sophomore, they think I mean in high school)!!
Just - WHAT. YOU ARE RLY CREEPY, PLZ DESIST.

HEY GUYS HEY GUYS

SO I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THE POSTS AT ONTD TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT ORLI'S CAR CRASH (which omg, poor baby, and I hope everyone ends up alright, jeez), AND I SAW THIS AND I'M GOING TO ONE OF THOSE SHOWS AND DJFASGUYASUDITGASIUFUSAGDSAIUFGTASDI EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

OMG YOU GUYS DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO HAVE TO SUPPRESS A SUPER-LOUD, SUPER-GIRLY SCREECH OF JOY BECAUSE YOU'RE IN PUBLIC??? VERY HARD, I'LL TELL YOU THAT.
BUT OMG!!!!!! SDUYGFBHSAFDIUAHGSDIASUDYYHASDFIFHSADLASIDJ
I'M TOTALLY BOUNCING UP AND DOWN IN MY SEAT RIGHT NOW YOU GUYS AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASFDHGSAUYDGSAFJKASODHBKSDFJ OMGOMGOGMEISGJSUAFHASIDU!!!!!!!!
splits_thesky: (d&j: i can't believe i've fallen for you)
Hah, I love how my flist, which is normally pretty dead after midnight or so, has been FREAKING OUT tonight. It's a combination of those new Jensen pics and the American Idol tour, I'm pretty sure, and the level of fannishness is HIGH. :DDDDD

I just realized I never officially came back from hiatus. So, uh, if you couldn't tell by the obsessive posting I've been doing, HI, I'M BACK. The summer classes I was taking are over, and I have this week off before the next summer session starts. These ones I actually have to go in for (the others were online), but I'll def try my hardest to keep up with the flist and all.

Anyway, the real point of this post is: DRAKE&JOSH!!!!! I know it's a Nick show and all, but it's good, okay, and I love it (and I KNOW there're a good number of you who love it too, so there). I've been pretty much watching all the episodes I can lately, and obsessing, and so, um, I made a fanmix?? Okay, well, it's not totally mine, I used some songs from a couple mixes over at [livejournal.com profile] drakexjosh (I'd link you to 'em, but they're f-locked). But some of the songs are mine!!
ANYWAY. The fanmix is slashy, yes, because I apparently have to slash everything ever, and also, have you SEEN the show????
Aaaaand here we go... )

Oh, and happy 7/7/07, you guys!! If I had enough patience, I'd pull a repeat of last year, but alas. Ooh, but I'm pretty sure there's gonna be a Fairly Oddparents marathon on, WIN. I love Nickelodeon, you guys.

And also!! New Jersey governor signs toughest U.S. carbon law. I saw this in the morning and went, "BITCHIN'!!!!!" really loudly. In addition to Nickelodeon, I love New Jersey, kind of a lot. Not that this is news to any of you! I'm just SAYING.

omg, you guys:

New Jersey Governor Is Injured in Car Crash

...in a hit-and-run, too!! The news on NBC is saying he's still in surgery, but he's stable. Just - omg.

I fixed my internets!!!!!!!! Well, I think, anyway. I HOPE.

Okay, very quickly, because I'm heading to bed: Supernatural )

Okay, also, this?? SUCKS. DUDE, SUCKS SO MUCH. You know, sometimes I hate people. I mean, seriously, we evolve, decide it's up to us to rule the world, and then proceed to royally FUCK IT ALL UP. This planet is going to DIE, so much sooner than it would have if we didn't have our heads up our asses so much. I would say I wish I could move, but it's not just here, it's ALL OF US, EVERYWHERE. I swear, sometimes I don't want to have anything to DO with people, much less be one. AAAAGGHHH, I don't even know. Just - yeah, sometimes I hate us, y'know??

ANYWAY. Bedtime now, I'll catch up with all of your SPN-reaction posts tomorrow.
splits_thesky: (house: dr. wilson t. bear)
YOU GUYS. I come home, and LJ's journally update thing is all DIFFERENT?????? WHAT IS THIS.

Uhhhhhhh anyway. I am going to catch up on my flist, okay. Just - not right now. Because right now, it's time for dinner! Which is THANKFULLY, not dining hall food anymore!! YAY HOME.

Okay anyway. My Celebrity Boyfriend/Girlfriend Meme! My thread is here.
KBYE GUYZ.

ETA: YES, NJ, YESSSSSSS. Also omg, we passed the bitter bridge on the train ride home, and I totally got all giddy. :D

It's not 100% to where I'd like it to be, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. GOOD JOB, NJ!! I am proud of my state. :)


In other news, Rush Limbaugh is a humongous asshole.
BUT I'm trying not to dwell on that, because it's kind of making me sick. So.


Anyway. lmao, right now I'm just sort of sitting here going, "yessssss!!!!!" and, "NJ REPRESEEEEEEEEEEEENT!!!!!!!!!!" :DDDDDD

YOU GUYS. Steve Irwin (a.k.a. the Crocodile Hunter) died.

Just - wow. That man was a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge part of my childhood, believe it or not. I remember, my brother and I used to watch the show together, and then be like, "WE'RE GOING TO GO HUNT CROCODILES" and attack our couch cushions. Like, seriously, what the hell.


ETA: When it was just in the Australian papers, I was still kind of desperately clinging to the hope that we'd wake up tomorrow and this'd just be some terrible, horrible, joke. But now it's on CNN.com, too.

R.I.P, Steve.

lmao, I love my state.


Also, I need to start writing more substantial entries.
Ummmm...Lost tonight!! I just typed "tonightz" and was totally going to leave it but then again, you know, IT MAKES NO SENSE.
Anyway. If it's a good (=super shocking) episode, I might update about that (=have an entry that says, "OMFG"). Or maybe not.
You know what I just realized?? I always make Lost reaction entries after one of the characters dies. Except I didn't make one after Boone, but then again, I didn't have a LJ back then. Plus, even if I had one, I don't know if I could have stopped bawling long enough to make an entry. Seriously, only three things in my life have made me cry (like seriously cry, not just get really sad and make the scrunchy I'm-going-to-cry-now face): The Lion King when Mufasa dies, when there was this segment on CNN about the animals abandoned from Hurricane Katrina (I like animals, okay?? And they looked so lost and Anderson Cooper had his sad face on...it was depressing), and when Boone died on Lost. I cried the most for Boone. Actually, it was a mix of me bawling and going, "BUT HE DIDN'T EVEN GET TO SEE THE BABYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!" Because everyone was so happy about the stupid baby and Boone didn't even know it was born.

Wait, why am I telling you all this??

THIS IS BLACKMAIL FODDER (I really like the word fodder, though I'm not 100% sure I'm even using it correctly. Also, apparently I really like parenthesis.)
