Bears for Dariush



Yesterday, we had a Guinness World Record certified and awarded at work. The record was for the most plush stuffed animals collected in one place - 2,304 critters, all of which will find new homes for Christmas through the US Marines' Toys For Tots program.

My friend Dariush of American Twentysomething asked me to take a picture of a critter for him - a bear specifically. As Madame Bonehead forgot to bring her camera to work yesterday, I took photos with my phone and e-mailed them to myself for the very first time. The quality ain't great, but the ability to take spur of the moment shots like this is pretty cool.

So, Dariush, just for you - enjoy some of the critters that kept us company in our cafeteria yesterday.


Feelin' pretty warm and fuzzy,

I'm such a sucker for stuffed animals. And look, there's Clifford the big red dog!

a cell with a camera is pretty cool and it's something I know I'd lug around whereas a separate camera would be up for grabs. One of the days...

What a cool idea! When I was younger, I was into stuffed toys. Now all I possess is a really cool collection of Opii (that's plural for "more than one Opus") the Penguin from Bloom County that I absolutely adore.

What great gifts these will make for more than 2,300 kids!

You have totally made my day. I love me some bears, especially the stuffed variety.

But not the taxidermist-stuffed variety. That's just... not cool.

Thank you thank you thank you!

Hah - we've got the same amount in our house, I'm sure. Or as Anna (6) told her grandfather on the phone "well, I'd like more cuddly toys for Christmas, but I'm not allowed"...
