Blog-a-thon, or "I'm insane!" [Jul. 9th, 2004|08:49 pm]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |optimisticoptimistic]

There isn't a lot that would motivate me to stay up for 24 hours straight just to sit at my computer. But Blog-a-thon is coming, and there are a couple things attracting me to this activity:

1) The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a really valid cause;

2) I haven't been doing enough charitable activities of late;

3) The party is happening at my house anyway, and like I'm really gonna get a chance to sleep.

Like Ferrett, I am going to collect donations via Paypal and then forward them on. For one thing, getting donations is a motivator - if I only have $15.00 in pledges, I'll donate the money myself and get some earplugs.

So, here's your chance to torture me into staying up for 24 straight hours:







Let's see how it goes!

Can I make a promise to donate on payday? I gave my last bit of discretionary cash (with money left for, umm, you know) to your husband.

Breast Cancer Research is a major charity in my life--runs on both sides of my daughter's family, and I'd LOVE to do more than just buy the stamps.

Certainly payday is fine. If you want to pledge a donation and tell me when to accept it, I will wait for that.

Thank you. (and darn him for being so much more on the ball that I![g])

You should write porn in tandem...

D'oh! I sent the last of the discretionary funds to your hubby this morning. Payday good for you?

As I said elsewhere, payday is fine. If you want to pledge a donation and tell me when to accept it, I will wait for that.

Thank you.

Didn't notice your header at first. There will be something written on this a bit later (in't that mysterious???)

Re: You should write porn in tandem...

That WOULD be cool. Ferrett said he likes writing, and porn, but the two don't mix for him, but you doing it with him would, like, give him a safe-space. (Can you tell that I read more ABOUT porn than about actual porn?)

I'm with the payday folks. Underestimation of puppy costs has turned me into Ebeneezer Scrooge.

Sure, payday is fine. If you want to pledge a donation and tell me when to accept it, I will wait for that. I need the motivation!

I'll be doing $24.00, so figure that in. I get paid the 15th, so I'll just take care of that then.

Sorry I couldn't pledge more, but I am feeling rather poor today after picking up my car and having to pay the $500. deductible.

I'm in. I recently posted about my friend Robin who died of breast cancer.

Have fun on the all nighter.

I intend to post about Annie, but amtrying to decide whether to post on the day or post beforehand to encourage pledges.

And thanks.

I think you should post it beforehand. Put a face on the issue to get pledges, and then you can do lighter, fun things during the event itself.

I am going to *try* to send you each 36 bucks for your causes, but right now I'm officially broke and I need my dad to start forking over a monthly allowance. So if I seriously don't pay you for a while, try asking in September; hopefully I'll have my living stipend by then.

Make sure you harass me if you don't get the money. I'll forget that I haven't given it or that I even pledged it.
