Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored my March for Babies walk last Sunday, in honor of Madeline Spohr. I walked with some really great people and we raised nearly $4,000 for the March of Dimes. The winners of my "Will-blog-for-sponsorship contest" are blogless Peajaye and Blognut. Please email me at with a topic that you'd like me to blog about. But it's ok if you don't want to, I totally get that it's not everyone's cup of absinthe.

Thank you also to everyone for coming out on a super hot Sunday morning for a great cause!

P.S. Nightly Nicki has been updated!

whaaa? i thought i was bidding on some valuable Thomas trains you had for sale.

but now that i won... hmmm, it's tempting, but telling you what to write would be like someone telling michelangelo what to paint-- oh wait, someone did do that, pope sixtus iv.

but i'm no pope (tho i played one in my 4th grade play), so i'll just take a pass. thx.

Wait! What? What am I doing?

I'll do it - whatever it is - but what is it?

I just like being a winner. Even if I've won the "Will Roll Naked Over Hot Coals" contest, I'm still excited, you know?

When you host the "let's take a cab" for charity- I'm in.

(I walked with you in spirit, my friend...)

Any cup of absinthe is fine by me ;-)

Alas, gone are the days when I could drink one and still function!

Still, one must attend to other matters when the reading of Ulysses is abandoned, and absinthe is as good a distraction as any other...abandons posting to frollick in green stuff
