The Blog Book

On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinneard, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinneard passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital.
Christian & Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%.

The site has more information.

You have probably heard in the news about bloggers raising money to help pay for the Nielson's recovery in different ways.

One group of bloggers is creating a book of funny stories tentatively titled "Sometimes Life is Funny." Proceeds will go to the Nie Nie Fund. "The goal of the book is to make people smile - so everything from mildly amusing to laugh out loud funny is needed. Your essay can be about anything - a day in the life, parenting, marriage, dating, growing up, work - anything."

We all have funny and silly things happen in our lives, and I know many of you can submit stories to this book! Make sure to read the rules here first. Don't stress out wondering if your story is funny or not; send your stuff in and let the compilers decide what goes in the book! Here's an update on how the book is coming along. Next month, Sue (the blogger at the previous link) will post a list of all of the submissions that made it into the book.

Spread the word! The deadline for submissions is September 30th, 2008.

I really hope that you wrote something. Maybe you should use the blog about the guy that stole the little girls trike or the dog that runs in circles. I almost peed myself reading those. Let's face it, anything you write is pretty darn hilarious. What a cool idea for a good cause. It's funny because I actually spent atleast an hour today reading Nie Nie's blog today, that is kindof where my gratitude post came from. We must be on the same wave length Adhis...

I liked your post about your boobs. Granted, I haven't read but three of your posts, but that one cracked me up. Submit that.

What have you got to lose? I mean, besides your dignity?
