I’ve been itching to make a lot of different posts today, but I was selfish and decided to save them up for tomorrow’s Blogathon. It’s hard enough coming up with 49 posts – I don’t need to go and waste them hours before it starts. I have a good list of ideas accumulated, and I’m sure even more fun things will pop into my head as I go…especially once I’m more sleep deprived. I’ll be meta-blogging (aka blogging about the blogathon) on my twitter account, so go there if you want to see the most insane side of the event.
Most importantly, we’ve raised $300 for the Secular Student Alliance so far!!! You guys are awesome! Thanks to everyone who donated (especially my slightly OCD friend who made a small donation to cap the money off at a nice even number)! If you still want to pledge a donation, click here. You’ll be able to pledge up to 48 hours after Blogathon is complete, so if you want to do something like pay a dollar for every post you actually find interesting (hopefully it’ll be more than one dollar…), you can do that.
Feel free to keep sending me stories/topics/questions until about 8 am Sunday! And I’ll appreciate any comments you leave on posts – it’ll be good to know that someone’s actually reading while I’m slaving away at my computer.
I’m still crossing my fingers for a Pharyngula bump, but I’m not sure if it’ll happen (maybe he needs a couple more polite suggestions…? I dunno, I don’t want to harass PZ). Scratch that, here it is! Thank you so much, PZ! I would love to see the donation amount just skyrocket. It would definitely help offset the amount of money we’re going to be giving Ken Ham’s Creation Museum when all 200+ of us go (holy crap, what am I getting myself into?)
With that, it’s time for me to get a good night’s sleep and prepare for my blogging extravaganza! See you guys bright and early tomorrow morning!
