Ahimsa is a fellow Craft Mafia member of mine, and I first met her a few years back at the Tower Grove Farmer's Market. She was the right blend of sweet and salty, which I cherish in a person. You couldn't tell at first, but when you read one of her sock monkey stories, I just new she had some sass to back it up with. I'm a fan of those who can take a simple thing (stuffed sock) and creatively sprinkle it with hilarity and silliness.
Anywho, I don't know her that well, but I'm obsessed with reading people's blogs, and hers is on my list. I could ramble on, but I'll skip to the part of her and her hubbie finally adding a beautiful daughter to their family via Korea. Add the drama of being thrust into parenting an almost toddler, they were denied health care for the new little Olive (which p.s. was Sylvia's original name but my mother ruined that one for me and I'm still super bitter). Our local news (which I normally think is total crap) covered the story and they need our support. The support I would enjoy partaking in would be the kind that involves throwing paper bags of my dog's (or better yet, my child's) poo at someone in charge (be it insurance/medical/government/soon-to-be-ex-president), I guess I'll pass the story along instead. I mean, I AM almost 6 months pregnant and it would be a shame to spent the last months of my pregnancy in jail. I'm just saying Fricks, I've got lots of poo if you need it.
Please read the story here.
Hopefully I'm properly linking it cuz I'm not too internetally inclined. See? THAT doesn't even make sense.
I wish them all the luck in the pursuit of a what should be goddamn given right to everyone in the entire world= free and wonderful healthcare. Because really, are we not all part of the same human race? Oh wait, I forgot. It's the white race we're running here. Oh, the rich, white race. The privileged race where only those who s**k the man's d**k can benefit from.
Wow, I'm saucy tonite. Please throw me a benefit rally if I get arrested. I'll need a little help with the bail.
