What Would Riggins Do?

I have a Gmail account I use for non-blogging purposes. It uses an initial/name combo that I probably only scored because I was early on the Gmail train. Since my name is incredibly common, I considered myself lucky it was available and have been using it loyally for professional purposes since. HOWEVER – because it’s a common initial/name combo (think: jsmith@gmail.com) I get a lot of email not actually intended for me. I’ve been signed up for various services that I’ve had to immediately “unsubscribe” to. I’ve been emailed coupons for businesses I don’t use and newsletters for organizations I’ve...

Do you think I’ll get an orange jumpsuit?

Today is my big day. Today – I go to the slammer. Not for that nasty crack habit of mine, but for the MDA’s Lock Up Fundraiser. I’m still $177 dollars from my $2600 goal (my team disintegrated so now I’m only responsible for my share of our bail money) and four hours before they arrest me. I haven’t written my own check yet, but I think I can swing $177 if I need to. I mean, who needs a/c in the car – right? If I fix my a/c, I won’t be able to write about boobsweat! But seriously...

Okay – Has everybody now heard that I’m going to jail in September? And I need you to donate to the MDA through my donate page in order to bail me out? Good. Now for the updates: First and foremost: The City of Huntsville has now become acquainted with my sweaty boobs. The directer of the MDA fundraiser got wind of my blawwwg and that I’m using it to raise money and she was very impressed with all of your quick action and included it in her jailbird newsletter that she sends out updating on everyone’s progress. This newsletter goes...
