Salute to Eric

This entire post is as promised dedicated to the highest fundraiser from Run4Cathy. And that thoughtful, selfless person is a good friend of mine named Eric (which happens to be purely coincidental as the sole determination of blog post dedication was dependant upon one thing and one thing only...funds raised. In fact, I almost would have preferred it to have been someone I didn't know. That way I could have made up an entire fictional persona for the winner which while it may not have been accurate, it most likely would have been funny. Instead I am faced with the challenge of making this interesting AND accurate as I will most certainly see this person again and be forced to stand face to face with my own shortcomings should this post end up a bust. Then again knowing Eric, he might not sell me out if I enhance the facts a little here or there.)

But truly there are no words to describe the sheer and utter awesomeness that is Eric's fundraising prowess and all efforts to verbalize it would certainly fall flat. So instead I will paint you a picture using the five most awesome video clips I can find on youtube, a video montage of AWE if you will (and I promise to keep them super short since I know personally any video over about a minute that I am sent I save for another time which almost always inevitably results in my never watching it).

MOST AWESOME BAD A$$ LITTLE GIRL EVER


DISCLAIMER: I am in no way advocating monster a$$ kickings nor child profanity.

MOST AWESOME LITTLE KID INJURY EVER

Disclaimer: Kid is ok which is part of what makes this so awesome. Furthermore, I am now morally opposed to chopsticks.


MOST AWESOME BABY LAUGH EVER

DISCLAIMER: Um...yeah...I got none for this one.


MOST AWESOME FUNERAL SINGER EVER

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way making fun of funerals, singers, or confirming that the above singer is in fact a crack head. But as a musically challenged person myself, I can sincerely appreciate the sacrifice he made in an attempt to honor the deceased and make the deceased's friends and family laugh, despite the complete and utter humiliation he put himself through.

MOST AWESOME WILDLIFE EVER: BIGGEST DEAD SNAKE EVER FOUND




And just so you know...this last one here is TOTALLY up Eric's alley. Thanks again to Eric and his awesomeness and to all who participated in the Run4Cathy. You guys are the best!

'Til next time...

Love, love the baby laugh. We should all sing, laugh, kick ass with such reckless abandon! Get that little girl to take care of that snake for us! Thanks for the fun! Way to go, Eric!
