Must...sleep...now [Jul. 15th, 2004|11:11 pm]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |sleepysleepy]

Here's the good news: Thusfar, 73 people have generously donated almost $1,200 to the Blog-a-Thon for the benefit of Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Here's more good news: I've managed to hook lj names to most of the donations and have created the special blog-a-thon filter.

Here's the bad news: there are a few of you who I just can't figure out. So, right after I post this, I will post a Blog-a-thon filter message that simply says, "TEST." If you cannot see it, you need to post a comment to this entry or send me an email at zoethe @ livejournal . com and let me know which journal to hook to which name. (You can post the comment and delete it immediately and I will get it via email, so if you are iffy about leaving such info up, keep that in mind.)

If you haven't donated and receive the test message, please follow the honor code and let me know. I've been careful, but it's getting late and I'm tired.

And anyone who comes across extra cash in the next couple days will be added on and can read everything, so the motivation is still there!

Guilty!
I donated from amyshy at iglou dot com and forgot to comment.

I just added you to my friends list today. I've been reading The Ferrett for awhile and have popped into your journal several times and always meant to add you. Your story about Annie really touched me so I added you and donated a bit.

Making an account just for reading the blog-a-thon would be having an account.

My reasons for not having an account are still valid. As an evil Republican* who professes the importance of living with the consequences of choices that are made, I guess I'm forced to just deal with it.

I admire your principles. Requests for emailed entries will be honored.

And you'll excuse my relief at the fact that you can't vote, I'm sure.

You and my wife. We're 100% opposites in political persuasion.

I live in California now, so my vote wouldn't have made a difference.

Done, I put my LJ username in the "For" space.

Reading about the cases you told about with the inflammatory breast cancer is scary. I'm the kind of woman who has...I forget the technical name, the type of tissue that's just normally pretty lumpy, I'd never find something by self-exam. I've been pinning my hopes on the fact that I'm now nursing my third baby, and knowing that brings the risks down. I hadn't heard of the inflammatory type before. How do women know if they're at risk for that?

I honestly don't know. I only knew about Sheryl's situation from a distance and didn't get the details of why they thought she was at such a high risk - I just remember the horror that everyone experienced when she was diagnosed despite everything.

Just an FYI - I finally got around to balancing my checkbook (our internet access was down all week). Anyway, I've made my donation! I only did $5 because I'm donating to several writers for the blog-a-thon and my tight and sad pre-closing budget is very thin.

Thanks! :)

I didn't see the test message.

I emailed you about my donation. It came from a Mnemosyne Consulting address. If that's not sufficient, let me know and I can give you more info.

Sorry for not donating sooner...

I'm actually donating from work because I've finally got time to get online--with the exception of some drunken posts on Wednesday (ironically from the lab) I've been working twelve hour days and didn't even realize it was Friday (and thus almost Too-Late-To-Get-Goodies). I donated a little to you and a little to Ferrett, so if you wouldn't mind alerting him while you're at it I'd appreciate it.

It came from my old college address, ewilliam a t erskine dot e d u. It should have my real name attached somewhere (Eric Williamson, for the record).

Gah - I am silly. I told Ferrett what my "donation name" was, but I didn't tell you. Because I am silly, as previously mentioned.
