Help Japan: 1000 Paper Crane DA Event!

Hello flist! The other day I was on DA, when I came across this event.

In a nutshell, this project aims to send a thousand paper cranes to Japan, and this is all that one needs to do to participate:

-Make a Paper Crane
-Write a message of support and hope to the people of Japan on one of the wings.
-Mail it to the volunteer, who will then mail all of the paper cranes to Japan.

I think it's an amazing idea, and have signed on for this project, so if you guys think so too, and have DA accounts, just follow the link above!

Ps: If you guys could post this or a link to this on your journal, it would be much appreciated.

It is Republic Day, so watching a film like this seems appropriate.

And I had some awesome Christmas Pudding! A friend of my aunt came down form England and brought some for us ... its a bit late, but it was really, really good, so I really don't give a damn!


Wow it's been almost six months since my last icon post, but that does not mean I have given up on iconing! So on this fine Christmas Eve I present to you my latest icon batch.

But before that I have some crediting and declaimers to make so bare with me.

Writer's Block: Vote early, vote often

Do you vote for a candidate based on issues or do you do you follow the party line, and why?

Issues are important, but at the end of the day its the political ideology which the candidate subscribes to that is the deal closer for me. There have been many instances in which I have been very impressed with candidates from parties I don't support, but at the end of the day we would be very lucky if anything a candidate says during a campaign is half true, and anyway what I find to be most important is said candidate's political ideology.   For a candidate could be the most charismatic and intelligent person, but when push comes to show they are going to toe the party line.

Although, all things considered, what it all really comes down to is who is the lesser evil.
