Last year I created a facebook page about the cousins on my mothers side of the family because over the years while the 6 of them have remained in pretty close contact up in Meeenaaasooooota , we three were not so much due to Daddy's Naval career. After running into one cousin ( Hey Judy !) , I began to run into others so I created a page. It's been kind of cool to realize that while we don't keep up with the page on a daily basis , we are making an effort to avoid the dreaded gorgon of " Damn...we only see each other at funerals...pass the hotdish ."....Engwalls are like that you dontcha know ( Double damn , the voices in my head now have the accent ...$#%^&*( )
Anyhoo, wioth one thing and another , I saw on FB the above link on my cousins page..and I got curious. I've heard of Kickstarter of course and have funded some things previously so I slapped Mr. Linky as is my custom...
There's my cousins daughter , Miss Marinna and her cohorts.
What struck me about this is that while other young hopefuls have had the same goal, they are content to wait on luck , magic, fairy dust and unicorns to make their mark...while Marinna and this group have decided to make their own luck. They are using Kickstarter to raise seed money and it's really a small amount ..so what the hell.
I have spent more on a mani/pedi and will most likely donate again .
Like I've said, SU and I have been helped when we needed it so yeah..
Check it out..it's awkward to push this when there is family involved but as for me
I'M ROCKIN THIS BAD BOY
Have a great Friday .
