Writer's Block: Can't we all just get along?

What is one way to stop or prevent bullying?
(BE A PART OF YOUR KID'S LIFE!) Just remember, the bully may be acting out because there is something in his/her life they have no control over and are unfortunately taking it out on someone else.

Your son/daughter will ALWAYS remember being bullied, so it's best to take care of the situation quickly and effictiantly but ONLY if they have exhausted all resourses to handle the problem themselves. (As a side note, I was bullied for being overweight from 4th through 12th grade. Yes, I'm still furious at my bully but that will soon be "resolved" when I attend my High School 10 year reunion. I've lost weight and earned a green belt in taijutsu and will punch that bastard in the face. Mature? No. But it will feel good to put that all behind me!)

My Deepest Darkest Secret

How Stargate Atlantis has affected my life...

   This is something I've shared with few others, but I fell it is time to let my secret be know why I'm working so hard to keep Atlantis alive. About seven months ago I had a seizure. The many doctors I visited and tests that were ran were unable to explain what caused it, especially since I’ve never had one before and have no family history of seizure problems. I was unconscious and not breathing for over a minute, the lack of oxygen affected the memory centers of my brain making the last four years seem like a bit of a blur. It was just the small things like people's names, places I've been, and conversations I've had. Can you imagine having people you can’t remember very well know more about yourself than you do? It wasn’t until weeks later my mother convinced me to watch Stargate Atlantis on DVD claiming it was my favorite. She said I would often call and recap each new episode to her over the phone with some insane new theory about what would happen the following week. I was only three episodes in when it happened; I remember smiling for the first time. A real, genuine, smile. (God, it makes me cry just thinking about it.) Maybe I rely on Atlantis too much, but since that first smile, it has gotten me through some rough times; and I’m not ready to let go just yet.

  Ok, so what I went through may be a little more intense than others. But I still want to hear if Atlantis has changed or influenced your life in any way. Post it here!

Project Protect Ver 2.0 (Thur, Aug 18)

Project Protect Ver 2.0 (Save Stargate Atlantis Rally)

When:  Thursday, September 18th starting at 9am. We will end when the last person we are to cold or too tired to continue. (Last time we ended around midnight, but feel free to come later or leave early if you have other obligations.)
Where:  Bridge Studios, 2400 Boundary Rd, Burnaby BC
What to Bring:  A poster board or picket sign showing your support for Stargate Atlantis.
Additional Links:  http://ssjandromeda.deviantart.com/ to download the poster I created for the rally. http://save-thelostcity.com for news and updates on the Save Stargate Atlantis campaign and to sign the online petition.
T-Shirts:  At the last rally on Friday, Sept 12th, most of us had matching t-shirts with a 'Project Protect' logo I designed. We would LOVE for everyone to have them again this time and I am adding a few 'spiffy' modifications, including the Pegasus logo on the sleeve and a custom quote on the back. You MUST contact me by 5pm on Wednesday in order for me to complete the shirt to bring Thursday! Unfortunately the iron-on sheets and t-shirts are not cheep, so this time I do have to charge. (For the materials only! I am not making a profit of this. A few of the other fans at the rally thought I should since it looked that cool; silly copyright laws, LOL.) $18 each. They are black shirts with white print, made from 100% cotton and come in (mens) sizes S through XXL. If you don't get to me in time I should have a few extras at the rally, (without the custom quote on the back) but they went fast last time and its first come first serve!
