So this morning, lying happily torpid and asleep in my bed, I received a rather unexpected phone call from a few friends.
It went something like this:

"Zandra! Get up! We're volunteering at Save the Children today!"

"...Whshngfrrgl?"

"We. Volunteering. Saving children! Get dressed, we'll be there in half an hour."

(*click*)

Now, since I had little desire to be attack!pounced in my pjs (which their normal method of dealing with an antemeridian Zandra), dressed I got.  And thereby spent several hours cutting the little "Tsunami Relief!" tags off the plastic pouches of these little blue quasi-Livestrong bracelets with the StC logo all around them, because apparently they printed several million (no, seriously, the lady in charge told us there was a warehouse with A LITERAL MILLION of these things in it, not counting the ones they sold and the ones in other warehouses) too many of them at the time they were acutually, you know, involved in tsunami relief, and this way can still sell them for general StC fundraisers even though no one is really interested in giving them money specifically for tsunami relief anymore.
It was surprisingly amusing.....

*for the love of Small Children In Perilous Situations, give the nice lady two bucks for it! Or we'll be "cut[ting] around the seal, alright, dear? so the bag is still closed and no one will know the difference! (smilesmile)" foreeevveeeerrr T_T
