Hello Experts,
I am showing jquery animation using the DIV on onclick event over sinlge element and the same function is been triggered for multiple selection which executes for all the elements available on the page. I wanted to show the animation only when it is been called from invidividual item and not for all.  
Can someone please look into the attached  code and advice me the change I would need.
Your help is much appreciated.
PS: Hielo, if you are around please have a look into this.

function addToShortList(){ 
				var myId = $(this).attr('id');
				var theId = myId.replace('_lnk', '');
				var myTitle =  $(this).attr('title') ;
				//Don't add the same item again.. [i think that there is a cooler wya to do this]
				var myLi = $('#' + theId + '_li').html();
				if (myLi){
					//this doesn't work on the first click?! we need a better test
					$('#'+myId).mousedown(function(){$('#' + theId + '_li').css('background','#fef8a5')});
					$('#'+myId).mouseup(function(){$('#' + theId + '_li').css('background','')});
				// create div for the animation
				var spigot = $(this).after('<div id="' + theId + '_spg" style="left:' + $(this).offset().left + '; top:' + $(this).offset().top + '; position: absolute; background:#fef8a5; z-order: 6000; ">' + myTitle + '</div>');
				$('#'+ theId + '_spg').offset((($('#shortlist').offset().top)-110), (($('#shortlist').offset().left)-0), 400);
				$(this).animate({opacity: "0.3"}, 500);
				//I.E seems to require display:none; followed by .show/slideDown event. FF is OK without!
				$('#shortlist').prepend('<li id="' + theId + '_li" title="'+ myTitle +'" style="background-image:url(\'\');padding-left:0"><a href="#" class="dynAdded" onclick="removeItem(this); return false;" title="Remove">&nbsp;[-]</a>' + myTitle + ' </li>');	
				$('#'+  theId + '_li').slideDown("slow");
				$('#'+ theId + '_spg').fadeOut('fast',  function(){$(this).remove()});				  
				//N.B. The page should load the cookie and then set the Add2ShortList buttons to opacity 0.3 - so's you know.. :) use .each fn
				//$.cookie('shortlist', theId+","+myTitle+","); 
// This is how I am calling the above function 
$('.addToShortList').click(addToShortList);  // for single element
// for all the elements on the page
