I’m starstruck. I’m her number one fan. #blessed

I basically get recognized wherever I go. I have a fan in my own college dorm. Don’t forget a lot of contributors to this blog (including myself) played a very small role on this real great book written by Esther Earl.  I highly recommend buying it!

"

The [Esther Earl Rockin’ Charity Ball] is on Esther Day, and they’re gonna dance in [Esther’s] honor. Thousands of people dancing - ‘cause Esther, she said - and I’m quoting her tweet - “I just want to be able to reach into bodies and pull out the cancer without hurting anybody, and I want to be able to dance. And I want the gift of words.”

And she’s got it.

She can’t dance - she’s not here to dance - but every time we look around the room and we see people dancing, we see Esther. And every time somebody does something good and right and honorable, we’re doing the work that she can no longer do.

Celebrate the Life of Esther Grace Earl liveshow recording

On February 1, 2014 at 7:00 PM, the Earl family [celebrated] the release of Esther’s book with an awesome, multi-media event featuring presentations by family and friends, as well as performances by Wizard Rock bands. [Watch] the Earls and Esther’s friends as they pay tribute to Esther’s life and work!

Hey friends!!!! This is going up late because lol effyeahnerdfighters is run by some of Catitude and we were all here! Away from our computers! Enjoying our IRL company together! I’m gonna draw back the curtain of FYNF a little bit here.

To everyone who watched the liveshow last night, and to everyone who braved Boston traffic to be there physically, thank you so much. It’s bizarre for us to see so many people sharing and loving Esther and her story. She meant a lot to us - Esther contributed to this dumb blog in its early days, before our current 80,000 follower count (wowza!!!). None of us ever imagined that people would use the word “catitude” so freely in front of so many people???

On behalf of all of us, thank you for letting us share our friendship with you, and thanks for not thinking we’re awkward weirdos (even though that’s totally what we are). We love you all. Nerdfighters rule~~~ dftba!
