A very good friend of ours has been diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia and is now going through a stem cell transplant. I have made a site called The Weave Report which chronicles her progress daily. We are also trying to raise donations for her so please visit the site.

Cease and desist??

We were sent a cease and desist from Bill Shults, Assistant Athletic Director for UCONN. He told us that the players can't pose with the peeps. "This practice is not allowed under NCAA rules and regulations, and it would jeopardize the student-athlete's eligibility." How exciting!! Our first cease and desist! We now edited the 2000 Peep Gallery so it's safe for all.

Tracy & Mia's Peep-O-Rama in the Daily News

So this guy Jim Nolan from Philadelphia's own Daily News interviewed me over the phone about our peep site. A photographer even came to our house and took our pictures. The article is fine, except he doesn't mention the Web address for our site (duh) and the picture only has me in it and they call Mia my "friend." Friend???? Um, make that GIRLFRIEND, as in lesbian, of over 7 years.
