It’s not the end of the week but it feels like it is because Christmas fucks up my biorhythms and so every day feels like a Friday with no weekend in sight. That’s why today I’m going to do a Sunday wrap-up for no reason whatsoever.
Well guess what? WE FAILED.
But just barely.
But that means there are only 27 more packages to go. And this is when I would say “Let’s have a bake-sale and raise that money, y’all!” but I’m too tired to make rice krispie treats so instead I just paid for the last 27 myself. Done. High-five, you guys. Best motherfucking holiday drive ever. (PS. I paid for those last 27 out of the proceeds of my online shop (which is funded by you) so technically you paid for them. Because you’re awesome.)
I just got an email from the founder of the Night Night Foundation and I wanted to share it with you guys:
“I’m not sure that I can really convey how much help you have given us this holiday. Truly. We had always heard about ‘the power of social networking’ but it never seemed to really work in the nonprofit sphere — until you stepped in of course. You and your readers are really the most generous folks. We have been so impressed by the swift action and by the kind words that we keep hearing from them. Everyone is so sweet to let us know that they read about it on your blog. We are beyond grateful. I wish you could know how thankful we are this holiday season.”
They aren’t the only ones who are thankful. I’m so lucky to be a part of something magical each year and none of this would happen without you. Thank you for letting me be part of this. Seriously. Thank you.
In non-related news, it’s time for the weekly wrap-up. Let’s get started, shall we?
What you missed on Ill-Advised:
What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- 2012 Bloggess Calendar. (Featuring Copernicus, Beyonce, Wil Wheaton, James Garfield, and other bad-assery.)
What you missed on the internets:
- I don’t know how I ended up on this list, but I’m totally flattered.
- I proved Santa with MATH. I’m not sure how you can argue against this, but people certainly tried.
- I’m #2! (The euphemism does not escape me.)
- Kick-ass stuff I pinned.
This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:
- Very Mary Kate is back.
- Choosing compassion.
- “Remember Ben.”
- I’d be offended if this wasn’t so damned accurate.
This week’s wrap-up sponsored by me. Mostly because this isn’t a real weekly wrap-up. But a lot of people told me that they’d bought my book as a present for friends and family and then realized that it doesn’t actually come out until April, so then they asked if I could send them something personal that they could print out to wrap up. I said I would and then promptly forgot about it. So I’m doing it here. If you bought one of my books for someone else just print this out and put it in an envelope. Also it makes the perfect gift for people to buy when they’re too lazy to go to the mall. YOU’RE WELCOME.
