Jaleel White (Steve Urkel) and Me - pleaseee vote!!

So who wants to do me a favor?

I submitted a picture of when I met Jaleel White (Steve Urkel!!) onto brickfish.com in hopes that I can get enough votes and page views to win a scholarship (which btw, I badly would appreciate since its greatly needed for school)

Click here to vote for me please!  You can vote as a guest or you can become a member and make your vote count more.

And if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can leave me a review (with a 5 star rating!!)

I would REALLY APPRECIATE IT if you guys could maybe get your friends to vote for it as well.  It really takes like 5 seconds to vote as a guest, and like 10 seconds if you decide to give me a quick review. 


If you can, maybe pleaseeee link to this post in your own journal so your lovely lj-friends can vote as well.  I honestly would really appreciate it!  I will give you metaphorical gold stars all around.  =)

Friends List

Here's the deal:

I have way too many friends journal and I barely have time to read and comment on all of yours, so I'm de-friending some of you. Sorry about that.

If you want me to keep you as a friend, just leave a comment and I'll add you back. I just feel bad having so many people listed when I don't have the time to read all of it.

The ones that I'm keeping are those that I've had linked for a while and feel like I've come to know you, in some way or another.

Sorry again!!
