Extreme Home Makeover Hits CNY - and...

I WILL BE THERE!!!

Being involved in one of these builds has truly been on my "bucket list" since the show aired and before "The Bucket List" was made. (ok - no I haven't officially written MY Bucket List... but i have ideas for it... Molesting Ty Pennington and crew is on the top.) Seriously - sure who doesn't want to rub elbows with some celebs - but for me? that's truly, hoenstly - NOT what it's all about. I just need to witness this miracle in person. I see it on TV - and I know that it's edited for TV to be hollywodd-ized - but I truly think it's genuine. and I need to feel it. to be a part of it. to take it all in. and be in the moment.

i immediately went to the builder's site - www.mahoneygives.com - to apply to be a volunteer. i then saw that ADP (my employer) was a sponsor. I contacted the builder, they got me in contact with the comittee chairperson for ADP - and poof - before I know it - I am assigned to volunteer at the VIP Tent this Saturday! if that ain't the shit - i dunno WHAT is! I don't know what the VIP Tent is - but i've done enough theatre and stuff - it's important. i may be serving Ty some FIGI water and making hom coffee... i'll TAKE IT! he'll make it into my scrapbook - that's HUGE! so i probably won't be getting my hands dirty or walking on drywall stilts or hanging shingles... but i will be doing something. anything. and that - is what matters.

check back often - as i post updates. you can see the news story here:
