The first few Laugh For Sight 4 pictures

December 2, 2009

It’s only Wednesday, and it already has been a very busy week for Nash and me. Been getting out the rest of the thank you letters for Laugh For Sight, as we had a lot of people to thank for donating and helping make Laugh For Sight 4 a big success. We are also taking meetings with a few companies and some organizations who are interested in discussing Laugh For Sight, and how they can be involved. We are exploring all of our options and deciding what is best for the future of the benefit. We already have had a lot of people inquire about 2010 and Laugh For Sight.

Yesterday, Nash and I headed to the east side for a meeting. I don’t go to the east side as much as I used, because afterall, as Kramer said to Jerry on Seinfeld, “Jerry, if you don’t want to be a part of society, why don’t you just move to the east side!” Yes, I believe that is an exact quote, what can I say, I have seen every episode probably twice, and have way to much useless information stored up top.  Nash and I had to transfer to head down town, and he did an excellent job getting me through the sea of people. He did keep trying to get a step up on me on the escalator, and i need to be ahead of him, so I can tell him when to get off. Not to worry, I did get ahead of him, and Nash did not get sucked into the escalator. He does seem to like riding the escalator, and the one in the subway is quite long, it almost seems like you are riding it up to heaven, that’s how long it is, and when you are taking it down, you can guess where it feels like you are headed. And in the summertime when you get down there, it is hot as hell! Coincidence?

Anyway, Nash and I met with a very interesting organization called Fight For Sight yesterday. They fund scientists who are starting out in their career’s, and cannot receive grants. While I would love for an organization to hire me full time to produce the Laugh For Sight benefits nationally, if that can’t happen, partnering with a large organization to get Laugh For Sight to the next level could be a way we go, but we still have a lot of companies we are in discussions with, and a few different cities that are interested in hosting a Laugh For Sight in 2010. If I didn’t have to worry about paying rent, it would make life a lot easier. I will keep you all aprised of where we are heading with Laugh For Sight 5. Wow, hard to believe we will be producing our fifth Laugh For Sight next year.

Here are a few pics from this year’s Laugh For Sight. Enjoy, and if anyone got some good pictures at LFS, please send them to me at info@laughforsight.com These photos are courtesy of Mark Liflander.

November 7, 2009

Nash sleeps in my bed one night in six month’s, and now he thinks it is his bed. Last night he got into my bed hours before I was going to sleep, it was like he was positioning himself, and saying hey buddy, first come first position. At about 9pm he got into the bed, and spread out all over the bed. He did get out of the bed later, and we played for a little, then went for his late evening walk, but as soon as we got back to the apartment, he darted back into the bed, and I know I am blind, but I could swear he had an evil smirk on his face. I was still up for a bit, and Nash was camped out in my bed. Finally I was ready to go to bed, and as usual, I was afraid to look at the clock, because if I don’t know what time it is, then I am really not up that late. I had to put my comferter back on my bed, and I flung it all over the bed, and over Nash, and he didn’t budge. I decided to sit on the couch, and watch a little more tv, and Nash just camped out underneath the blankie. It was like he was in a cool little fort, or camping out in a tent. Finally, I wanted to get into bed, and I didn’t want Nash to get all fidgety while I was asleep so I got him to come out from underneath the blanket, and he repositioned himself on top of it. He was kind enough to move over when I got into bed, but then he started running all around me, and was standing over me, and I’m like, sorry dude this isn’t going to work. He was then standing on my right, and was standing on the cliff of the bed, and I’m trying to tell him to go to the other side. I even tried picking him up to move him to my left with no luck. Eventually, he understood, and crashed out on top of me a little on my left. I thought when I got a guide dog that I would tell him what to do, but I think even after six month’s we are still trying to determine who the boss is. Even though it is only three in the afternoon, I am thinking about getting into bed, hey, I got to get my spot for tongith before Nash gets his!
