I ran across this on a message board and thought I'd share it:

Has any one heard of the preseratives in meats being a trigger for seziures? Cold cuts are really loaded with the stuff. We had gone to see a Doc. in Hoeophic med and he told us that it takes a day or so for the stuff to get to your brain but when it does the stuff can cause shorts avoid the stuff and all pork products along with any thing that says prosessed on the lable. Dairy products are also a carrier.

And don't forget to bid on the auction before it ends on Sunday! Jennifer Love Hewitt signed book.

Let the bidding begin!

I've listed the book on eBay (see the link below) and am ready for bids! Remember, this is helping to pay for more bracelets, so please help me raise enough to cover the cost of the book and the eBay fees. I'm wishing now I'd thought ahead and bought a copy on Amazon to save some money... lol.

Autographed copy of The Day I Shot Cupid

Oh yes, and that's my friend Amy getting her copy signed. I didn't have anyone to take my photo with JLH, since I got there earlier. Plus we couldn't pose with her anyway. :-/

Fundraising! Part 2

So last night I got Jennifer Love Hewitt's new book, stood in line for an hour or so, and got it signed. I'm going to be listing it on eBay this weekend to raise funds for the epilepsy bracelets, which I need to order veryvery soon! I would list the book this morning, but I'm rushing to get ready for a short film screening in Burbank (otherwise known as Far Far Away) today. I wasn't nominated for anything, but it should be fun anyway!

Back on topic! If you want to know about the book, The Day I Shot Cupid, this is it. I haven't read it, but intend to read a bit before I ship it off to the highest bidder.

I have to say, I learned a lot about book signings last night. I mean, someday I want to finish the book I started on losing a step-child (there are no books out there! Does anyone want to collaborate with me?), and I'm sure book signings come with the territory. Last night worked like a well-oiled machine. In a bad way. It was like going down a slip-n-slide. The line moved quickly, she signed the book and the next person was sent right over. I think the most disappointing thing was that we weren't allowed to get photos with her (would have been soooo great to post on Facebook for all the people who keep telling me "you know who you look like...?" I even got it at the birthday party I attended right after the book signing). I've never been to another book signing, but I thought it was a time where you actually got a little time with the author. The only book I have signed is Audrey Hepburn Treasures, and that's because I know one of the authors. Anyway... it was a bit of a let-down but I did get the book signed, and I'm hoping to get a little money from it to pay for more bracelets. The walk is coming up in a month, and I'd hate to miss it.

In other news, I'm going back to Paris this summer (with 2 weeks in Hungary with Habitat for Humanity in July) and gearing up to shoot a little web series. I know that has nothing to do with anything here, but I'm excited about it and want everyone to check it out when it's done!

Stay tuned for my next post! I'll have a link to the auction!

So tonight I'm going to get a copy of Jennifer Love Hewitt's new book signed by the author... and then I'm going to list it (probably on eBay) for sale to raise funds for more bracelets. The price has gone up this year, significantly! At least 10¢ per bracelet more. Please help out! I will be ordering by this weekend to make sure I get some for the walk, but there's always the next one, too, you know!

Urgent Request for Donations!

As you might know, every 6 months there is an epilepsy awareness walk in Southern California. Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk takes place this year on April 25, in San Diego, and I intend to be there once again with my bracelets. The problem is - I only have about 50 left! I want to order 300 more - to pass out about 200 and keep 100 on hand at home. But for 300 bracelets it will cost $456. At the moment I'm trying to save money for my summer trip, and the Tax Man, so this is a large chunk of change. I have to pay by the end of this week to guarantee I get the bracelets on time. If I can't raise a little extra money to pay for this, I might not be able to hand out bracelets this year. If you would like to help me in my mission to raise awareness of the dangers of drowning, please go to the page below and click on "buy now" to donate. Please make a note in your Paypal payment that it is a donation towards bracelets for the event. For your donation I will send you a bracelet, as well, to say "thank you."

Très Chic

Just a quick update. I was on Facebook and this ad was on my home page for some medical alert jewelry. I wanted to share it for anyone with epilepsy that might be reading this. There are so many choices now in how you can wear your medical ID, you don't need to be self-conscious about it! Here's the website:

Elegant Medical ID

In other news, there's another epilepsy walk coming up at the end of April, so I'm going to have to order more bracelets soon. Please let me know if you're interested in donating towards them. I'd love to be able to give out at least 200.
