So, uh, I may have accidentally deleted a bunch of comments from earlier today while dealing with a spam flood. So if you notice a comment you made suddenly having gone missing, it’s not that you were being moderated, it’s that I flubbed. Sorry. You can repost if you like.

The Best Fan Art of Me Ever, As of This Moment

What’s that? I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over the awesomeness that is me flying on a churrocorn. Yes, when a churro and a unicorn love each other very much, this is what you get. Plus me, flying on my deliciously cinnamon-y steed.

This magnificent work of art comes to us from Natalie Metzger, who is clearly a genius. Let her know, here.

Blessed Critters

My friend Alisha is trying to help out an animal shelter local to her called Blessed Critters, who are doing a little bit of fund raising due to unexpected rising costs. Here’s what she wrote to me when she asked if I could boost the signal:

“I am asking for help for them because of our own personal experience.  About a month ago, our recently adopted second dog began demonstrating strong aggressive, alpha behaviors, and we needed to remove her before she further injured our other dog, or decided to actually bite one of the children. We live in an area without a no-kill shelter, and we’ve been here only a short time. Cadie Hennig and Blessed Critters took our dog with no hesitations, even though they were already sheltering more than 30 dogs. They took the time to find out all of Sam’s good features, and have been working to retrain her. They clearly love the animals that they are housing – dogs, cats, goats, and/or whatever else needs a home. Over the last several months they have been facing increasing difficulties, but they keep working on faith. I’m hoping that your readers might be able to help them.”

Check out their fundraising page, and if you think it’s a worthy cause, consider giving them a donation.
