Leap! Day

In my years of fashion adventuring, I've had an inclination to take many LEAPS of faith grandeur. Not sure why I haven't been jump-shotting as often these days. Maybe it's my old bones squeaking in noncooperation. In honour of Leap Day 2012, a by no means exhaustive yet exhausting Pandaphilia history of jumping:

In other news, I joined the Bone Marrow Registry today. For people with immune system diseases such as leukemia and multiple myeloma, a good tissue-type match can be live-saving but hard to find. One has a 1 in 4 chance of matching exactly with a sibling, but for many people that's not an option. Donors of Asian descent are especially needed, and matches are most likely found within your ethnic group due to the genetics. So I did the scary thing and signed up. If I could have donated bone marrow stem cells to my Mom for transplant, I would have but immunology doesn't quite work that way. Whose Mom or loved one will you save someday? This is part of my new endeavor for the rest of my life:
