UPDATED: This week felt like 18 months.

UPDATED: You’ve all heard me talking about my friend Anissa before.  She’s amazing and she was once generous to me when she didn’t have to be so now I’m trying to do the same.  She’s one of us and is recovering from multiple strokes and after many months is finally coming home (yay!) but she’s currently hemiplegic and her copay for outpatient therapy is $100 a day for the next 40 days.  She’s a mom with small children and they need help.  That’s why I’m asking you to donate if you can.  $10 is ideal but even $5 will help.  And here’s what I’m giving back.  See the sponsorship thing at the bottom of this post?   Leave a comment below saying that you donated even a dollar and in two weeks I’ll pick one person at random and will pimp you (or the site of your choice) for free as the sponsor of the weekly wrap-up.  Click here to donate directly to her family or if that link won’t work for you then you can paypal it to this address: anissa.mayhew@gmail.com.

Thank you, guys.  Thank you for being who you are, and for making a difference, and for making us all feel a little less helpless and alone.

****************************************

It’s Sunday, which means it’s time for the weekly wrap-up, y’all:

    This week on my sex column (which is satirical and relatively safe for work if your boss isn’t a douche-canoe):

    This week on the internets:

    This week on Good Mom/Bad Mom on the Houston Chronicle:

    This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:

    This week’s wrap-up sponsored by the teams at Mamavation & EarthFootwear who think your ass looks *fantastic* in those jeans.

    Comment of the day: I have been pulling for Anissa since her stroke though I don’t know her at all except through some of my Twitter and blog friends. My father-in-law had a stroke recently. A stroke is so devastating for the stroke victim and the family. When my family gets discouraged, I tell them how Anissa’s doing and how it takes TIME. I’m so happy for Anissa and her family that she’s getting to go home. I don’t want you to pimp my blog, I want you to pimp the Race Against Violence here in Houston on March 6. I’m trying to put together a social media team to walk and raise money for the Houston Area Women’s Center. Hope you choose me…it’s important. ~ Kathryn

    53. I have to admit I hadn’t heard of Anissa before this hell of hers began, but through you I have read a lot about her and she sounds awesome and funny and like someone totally worthy of all the love and praise you’ve given her. I usually don’t donate in situations like this, and I justify it by telling myself that I can’t afford it and I need to take care of this or that or the other and blah blah blah me. I absolutely can afford it today, and so I donated $100 because Anissa’s worth it. I know from personal experience that sometimes you have to rely on others to pull you through. Before she died, my grandmother’s hospital bills passed the million-dollar mark. My mother and stepfather’s bills are escalating into the hundreds of thousands now, as they both are fighting cancer. A lot of their bills have been covered, though, because of people who came forward and did something about it and helped. They would be destitute if not for the generosity of others. Thank you, Jenny, for being one of the good ones.

    87. Went over to Anissa’s website and made a donation. I had something similar happen to my aunt when I was younger and it’s scary and a lot for the family to take on emotionally – never mind the financial end! I’ll definitely be checking in for more on her progress.

    100. Thanks for posting Sasquatch Jesus. I’ve read about your friend, and she has my sympathies. I am glad that she is going home, and at least appears to have the chance for some recovery to her right side. I can’t imagine what it would be like to face that kind of medical challenge, then have to face the extra financial burden. I donated a little, but I wish paypal had a way that you could donate out of the pay check of one of the CEO’s of the health insurance companies. I’m sure that Aetna’s head man wouldn’t miss the equivalent of 21 minutes pay to foot the entire bill.

    129. I read Anissa’s blog and have been keeping tabs on her since this stroke. I saw the latest post asking for help and made a mental note to donate when I got home. (reading blogs at work is one thing, remembering my paypal log in is quite another). So then, naturally, I forgot. I would have remembered even if you didn’t post this update, but you did so I donated, and now it appears that I donated just so you’d pimp my blog. Sigh. Or perhaps this is all some cosmic prophecy and I had nothing to do with it, it’s just the gods wanting Jenny to be my pimp. That makes me your bitch, right? I think I’ll like having a pimp. Does it have to be for my blog? Point is, Anissa needs help and I’ll do what I can. Peace, out.

      I read your blog for the first time tonight, and you made me laugh. I have a 7 month old baby with a serious dairy allergy, which means I can’t eat fucking chocolate, or cake, or any of the shit that makes life good, I have insomnia and an ear and chest infection, and the other day somebody who hadn’t seen me in a while looked me up and down and said, in hushed tones ‘Jesus. Is it…is it cancer?’ (oh man, you know you’re lookin smoking when people think you’re terminal. Who needs self esteem with friends like mine?)
      Basically, I have very fucking few moments in my life right now where I crack a smile, and tonight you had me roaring with laughter (it hurt, it was worth it). Consider my $20 donation payment for services rendered.
      I won’t give you my blog address because that’s really not why I did it, but I will donate $5 a day if you and your cat come and sit in my house and make me laugh. And a small baby. Because small babies are the best medicine, right? Right??

      Hmm. Maybe not. Oh well. Better luck giving her away next time.

      I just remembered your blog… I’ve been here like a year or two ago and then I lost sight of it. But I just got reminded of Anissa and her story and I realized I never knew that everything was alright, so I came back to check.
      Glad to hear she is still with us – I donated 20 munnies to help! All the best wishes from a total stranger from another continent and please excuse my bad English. :3
