UPDATE: ALL THE PETS HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!!!
From Humane Society of Putnam County (Greencastle IN): It is with extreme
closing Sept.30th. We have been instructed that all animals are to be
placed by the 30th or be euthanized. Any animal that is already
spayed/neutered will be adopted out with a "choose your own adoption
fee" special. Those not spayed/neutered will be adopted out with an
adoption fee to cover the costs.
SEE THE PETS IN DANGER
I just need to avoid television for the next week or so.
I am also keeping track of several animal relief efforts in Japan. Of course I am very concerned for the people - but the Japanese are resilient, and they will bounce back. Not to mention they are getting all the coverage and of course they are priority for the rescue efforts. All too often, though, are the poor dogs and cats (and other animals) neglected during time of trouble, and I want to do what I can to make sure they get some relief as well.
For anyone interested in the animal welfare aspect on the Japanese front, I can personally attest to the following places to donate:
ARK: Animal Refuge Kansai - This group is the one I have personally worked with, having fostered four cats (two adults and two kittens) during my time in Tokyo. (They have a Tokyo branch.) They are wonderful people and spare no expense to rescue pets in need of shelter and care.
Japan Cat Network - A great place to keep track of the current events and how it effects the kitties of Japan. Donation links are available on the right sidebar.
Nippon SPCA - Heard of the ASPCA? Well Japan has one too! Donate here - even after the earthquake recovery is passed, even!
World Vets - A worldwide organization has focused its efforts on Japan, and you can donate here.
Currently I'm trying to come up with a way I can raise money to donate, since my funds are somewhat limited. But what do I have to offer that people would want?
Since my bud Adam is insisting I be shameless for once....
My birthday's coming up in nine days! If anyone was considering gift-giving
kei_m got me the two NANA movie DVDs for Christmas, and I've already watched them both three times since then! <3 I love you my sweet Shin-chaaan! <3
sai12 got me Clover for Christmas as well! It's a great token to remember her and think of her while she is in Korea. <3
...so please don't think I don't appreciate the things you've all given me over Christmas! I hope I will be able to return the favor, too!
So again, without further ado:
My Wish List!
If I were to start an RP, would you be interested in joining?
What genre would you be interested in playing?
If you selected Anime/Manga: shounen, what titles would interest you?
If you selected Anime/Manga: shoujo, what titles would interest you?
If you selected American Animation series, what titles would interest you?
Do you roleplay online?
What types of online RPGs interest you?
What types of RPs do you prefer?
What genre of RPs do you prefer?
What type of RP would you like to see, which is hard to find?
It's hard to imagine how one little decision could make the entire course of your life take a drastic turn. What do they call it...the butterfly effect?
Some things may have remained the same. I think Shouji and I would've broken up eventually.
But without you, I'd probably still be floating through my existence, going from romance to romance like a butterfly from flower to flower...
I wonder where you are now? You're not floating, are you? Have you found a place to stay, a place where you belong? Somehow if feels as though we're stuck in limbo, skimming through
life until we meet up again, and things will return to the speed it once was.

*Surf around your friends list (or friends’ friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list.
And now here's the important part:
*If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use—or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free—do it.
* You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out; it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf—to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not—it's your call.
* There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish and it might come true. Give and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.
