No Free Pass from the DPD

current state of mind: hungry

I like to keep it in the refrigerator.
Keeps the powder dry, and the action quicker.
Let me be your American Gladiator.

This holiday weekend brought me two very special items . . . a Peter Walsh hard-cover, sticky notepad for my purse and arrow-shaped see-through sticky notes. Both are miracles of the office supply world. I am torn between the two and not quite sure which I want to place higher on my list of “technology greats of the 21st century”. There is something about sticky notes that brings out the geek in me. Perhaps it is genetic; my maternal grandfather worked for 3M.

Much to my chagrin, I did not get any of my “need to ship” gifts sent out -- so those of you in other states will have to wait a while longer -- sorry. Think of it as the twelve-plus days of Christmas. They will get sent off soon. I promise.

To prepare for the upcoming New Year, I am asking you to donate fifteen dollars to the 2012 Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure. It will be my 5th year that I will be walking 60 miles over the course of 3 days to bring attention and much-needed funds to a cause that I hold close to my heart. It is easy to donate and you can get a nice deduction for the 2011 tax year.

1. Please visit: www.the3day.org/goto/jtuck2012
2. “Click to Donate to Jillian in 2012”
3. Make a quick and easy donation.

And, if you would like to join my team and start your own incredible, life-changing journey toward a cure for breast cancer, you can do that as well.

PERSONAL NOTE: You are swell!

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: I want some chick-fil-a!
