The ALS ice bucket challenge

Anyone been following this? One of the latest nominees is Kermit! He responded to Vince McMahon's challenge at great risk to himself. being an amphibian, being drenched in freezing cold water could have caused him to go into dormancy! He nominated his movie co-stars.

JUST!!! an idea...maybe WE could do something to raise awareness for cats in need? Nothing too crazy...

I know it's for a good cause, but I'm SOOOO over this.

Kermit's next song will be, "It's Not Easy Being Blue."

Bicycling in the rain! Or, alternately, a garden hose?

THey've raised 8.6million in ONE day for ALS. That's an amazing feat. I've never seen a fund raise like this go viral. I think it's awesome.

There are some celebrities I've been so surprised at. Good AND bad. For example Justin Bieber has done it twice..... neither times with ICE water. He bsed it and just used a pot of water... The second time I presume was to show off his chest since the only change was without his shirt....

I love that people I didn't expect to do it... did. Bill Gates, JLo, Chris Meloni did it twice (the first time no one recorded it, that cracked me up), even my old high school principle has a video of herself doing the ice bucket challenge.

I love it!

I think on my news feed it's calmed down. Most of my facebook friends have done it, including me. Although we didn't have any ice, so I just used the cold water from the hose... >.>

I'm actually enjoying watching people dumping water on themselves. It can be pretty entertaining.

Chris Pratt is my favorite so far. When you watch it, you'll see why.
