Give a Little Bit

Update: Your generosity has helped! We've reached the intended goal (and then some) and our dear Mikey will be able to be back on line and back to blogging in no time. Thanks to everyone who donated. Bloggers have once again restored my faith in humanity.
****
The ever-fabulous Jules has hijacked Mikey's blog, if you haven't noticed. For those of you who read Mikey*, you know that he fell for blogging hard and fast. He's taken it and run with it- meeting countless new friends and even starting a separate blog dedicated to HIV/AIDS. For him, as for many of us, blogging is a lifeline. With a broken down computer for weeks upon weeks, Mikey's been borrowing friend's internet time or crashing the local library but you can imagine that just isn't enough time to connect with on-line friends and to fill us in on the haps in his life.

All this is to say that Jules is collecting donations towards Mikey's new computer fund. I am sure he is a bit embarrassed that people would actually donate. He's humble like that. But hey, Mikey? That's because people love you! Let's overwhelm him folks. As of yesterday we were only $75 away! Even $5 helps the cause. That's peanuts. That's a latte and a scone. So hop on over and give a little. It is Sunday afterall and God says: donate.**

If you've already given to the cause, great! You are going to Heaven. And, phew!, that's one less person for me to bribe with a bonus make out session.***

*This Mikey is not to be confused with my former housemate, Mikey.
**Ok so I don't personally know if God would say that but he seems like the donating kind.
***Does anyone want to make out anyhow?

P.S. Apparently today is National Ice Cream Day. I thought EVERY day was that?! Go out and have yourself a double scoop cone! Thanks President Reagan.

I can't imagine what I would do without MY lifeline to the outside world. I am the Queen of Bargain Internet Shopping (haven't seen the inside of a mall in 15 years!).

So, even though I don't know him, I donated $20. Something just came over me. He won't know who I am and that's the way I want it...

I'm not rich...in fact, I'm on disability...but like I said, if I lost my computer, I'd probably lose the will to live!

I hope he gets it!

You don't know me personally, but I've been reading your blog for a while now. And I've commented. So, I'm not going to let you see my name because I want to remain anonymous even to you.

virtual hugs...

Anyway, will you post in your blog whether or not Mikey got his computer???

Nihilistic said...

Yes...I want to make out too!

Karl said...

Hmmmm, there's going to be making out? Can I get on that dance card?

Bre said...

Ugh. I detest my computer, but at least there's one around for me! I'll for sure be donating - thanks for the heads up!

Sizzle said...

three hot guys want to make out? SCORE!

sue said...

YIPPEEE!!!! Mikey's gettin' a 'puter! Whoo hoo! ... oh, and yes, I donated. Who wouldn't? Such a good cause for such a nice guy! Looking forward to future updates from HIM (Jules, go home sweethart - we love ya, but you just look funny in Mikey's spot...) :) Thanks Siz, for keeping us updated!

...and on the work thing? Don't worry - you, too, will be working soon and whining about short weekends. ;)
