Betsy has a name! Elenoa Atamarie – the first name pronounced like Elenora but without the r, and the middle name pronounced aught-ah-mar-ee-ay. (I’m pretty sure on the spelling of her first name, but it might be Elanoa. I’ll check and get back to ya.)
There’s a new Huntzinger! Alissia had her baby today at 4:02, the baby weighs … are you ready for it? 9lbs 5 oz. HUGE. Massive. She’s 22 inches long. She doesn’t have a name yet, but hopefully will by tomorrow.
PS. Her name isn’t Betsy, that’s just what I call her, seeing as she is, as of yet, unnamed. I may continue to call her that after she has another name though, who knows? I’m unpredictable that way. I won’t be constrained by real, legal, names!
I’m participating in a write-a-thon to support the Office of Letters and Light, a non-profit organization that runs great events such as National Novel Writing Month and Young Writer’s Program. It’s a great cause and they can use any donations they can get, but more to the point for me, if I’m one of the first 200 people to raise at least $200, I get to attend The Night of Writing Dangerously, a really cool writing event that I’d really love to go to.
So will you donate? It doesn’t have to be much, even $5 would make a difference. It’s insanely easy to do, just click Donate in the little box:
As you can see in the widget above, I’ve reached my goal! YAY! Thank you to those who donated! (Now I just have to wait to see if I was in the first 200, but I’m pretty sure I was.) And those who haven’t yet donated but would still like to, go for it! The more money the charity gets the better, and if I have the top donations I could win a new laptop. Yay laptop!
Ok, I know I usually don’t post about celebrity gossip and stuff, and I made a goal to stop paying attention to it so much and all that, but I just have to let my celebrity loving self and my comic book loving self squee over this gloriously funny image:
“Spears then arrived at the courthouse in a white convertible Mercedes-Benz early on Thursday afternoon – to face Commissioner Gordon herself in a closed-court meeting.”
The thing that takes it up a level in my mind is imagining Adam West as her lawyer.
I love Dancing with the Stars, but as much as I love the celebrities, you have to question some of their “Star”-ness. So here’s my dream cast of Dancing with the Stars. Some are picked because I think they’d be hilariously awesome, others because I’d like to see them dance, and all of them because I think they’d totally commit. I also tried to get some variety in there. There’s no sports people because, well, I don’t really know of any.
