Pirate Typing

So, it's 2:19am. A very tired part of me wants to crawl into bed, letting the braised rib mashed potatoes fill my dreams with pink lighting and children's artwork. Another part of me... the one typing with one eye closed at this very moment... wants to battle through jumping sheep long enough to get through this.

Tonight was... well, amazing. I think Crys and I always knew that as a business, we would be successful. What we never counted on (or could have ever imagined) is the community that you all have built around Cassidy. It's really unbelievable to just sit back and watch. Aside from the fact that someone had the vision for our tastes enough to order fried chicken and waffles as an appetizer, the friendships that we've created with our families literally leaves me speechless. Honestly, I've been trying to write this paragraph for nearly 15 minutes. Listen, I'm not going to lie, it might because I'm currently on the brink of a food coma and my right arm is tingling... and my other eye is starting to shut. With that said, thanks to everyone who could make it tonight. I'm not sure how much we raised, but I'm sure it was a success. I'll post numbers as soon as a few of the parents recover. Again, I can't say this enough, I'm so honored to be a part of this community. It's so much bigger than Crys and me, and we couldn't be more lucky to be involved.

On a sad note, we had to leave the Giving Tree on Pico. It was so beautiful that it wouldn't fit into any of the transport cars we had. I was offered $20 to put it in the turning lane. Luckily the dad who offered wasn't the designated driver. I almost did it, too. Hey, $20 would buy us fruit for a day... not that that particular $20 would have made into the fruit pot.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. I know a few. Other eye shutting completely. Not even sure what I'm typing anymore. This is where my freshman typing class pays off. Goodnight.

Saturday Stuff

So, if you haven't figured it out yet, there's a little shindig (not the spazmatronic dance type that's in the urban dictionary) going on this Saturday night. It's our annual fundraiser being held at the Mark for Events. If you can't make it, think about sponsoring a teacher. Tickets are being sold every morning by really cool moms... and Helen (who's still a really cool mom). If you can make it... great, see you there.

There are some great raffle items as well. Students projects and canvases will also be displayed on Saturday with the backdrop of amazing music and dancing and food and adult beverages. Who doesn't like kid's art with alcohol? Not me.

Thanks to everyone who's already donated to the giving tree and/or bought tickets to the event.

On a very cool note, we now have a Weezer signed guitar to display at Cassidy forever and ever and ever. Forever ever, ever ever? Yes, forever ever. We'll also be finally framing the blueprints that I had intended on framing about November of 2009. With that said, if any of you first-yearers (2009-2010 families) are still around and haven't signed that thing, do tell... and then sign it... please... only if you want...

Have a great rest of your week. Hope to see you Saturday.
