Two quick things

Oh my goodness. You people are NUTS. I mean, I mean that in the best possible way. Like, gorgeous, generous and oh-by-the-way, INSANE. The current high bid on the Wii to benefit my kids’ school is $375 as of this writing. Which is crazy. And I thank EVERYONE who has bid so far so, SO much. You still have until nearly midnight tomorrow if you’ve been smoking a particularly large amount of crack and want to bid even HIGHER, which gets you the Wii, a copy of Sleep Is for the Weak, and the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you’ve really made a difference for a school in need.

And speaking of that little book thing, I’m doing a signing today at the Athens, GA Borders on Alps Road at 1:00 p.m. Come on over! I will not be auctioning any Wiis there, but I will be signing books and giving out Eco-Libris stickers and maybe telling embarrassing stories. Which is pretty much what I do here, every day (the embarrassing stories part, anyway), but it’ll be EVEN MORE GREAT because of that whole socially awkward thing. Yes. I hope to see some of you there!

    Oh, if only I weren’t way up here in drippy Seattle I’d SO be at your signing.

    Dang! If I were in town visiting the in-laws, I’d come by and say hi!!

    Good luck today!

    Have fun at the book signing!

    That was a thoughtful way to give back to the school, and I would have bid, too, if we didn’t have one. Hope the signing goes well!

    Bummer, wish I’d read this earlier. I would have come up there.

    sorry for not visiting for a while I was knee deep in stuff.

    I asked God, not two minutes ago, not to move me to Georgia. Look at me changing my mind. Well, at least wanting to visit. :)

    I hope your creeping crud has gone into remission so you can enjoy yourself in Athens!
