Alerts and Clarification

First of all, let me clarify:

I have a warped sense of humor, and sometimes it leads me astray. Or perhaps it leads others astray. In any case, for those of you alarmed by my last post: No, I do not think that a nurse spit anything into my gaping chest. I was being facetious, as I often do in times of stress and/or fear, in order to distract myself from my internal urge to panic and fret. I apologize if my attempts to amuse actually caused distress... that was certainly not my intention.

That being done and over with, let's get on to the next announcement:

If you live in Minnesota, you have a wonderful opportunity coming up this week. On Nov. 17th, from 8am until the following 8am, you can give a donation - it doesn't have to be big, any donation will do - to the charity or organization of your choice, and if you make that donation through Give MN, they will make a matching donation of 50 cents on the dollar.

So if you were to give $10 to, oh, let's say Pathways or Gilda's Club or Vail Place or the Weaver's Guild of MN (just, you know, choosing at random, *koff*), if you made the donation through Give MN, it would be worth $15. Great deal!

Here's what you do:

1. Go to www.GiveMN.org.

2. In the box that says "Donate," type in the org of your choice next to "Find a nonprofit."

3. Click on the link for your org when it comes up.

4. Enter your donation amount, click on Donate, then complete the form.

Give MN has a $500,000 matching fund available. I imagine your favorite nonprofit could use a little bit of funding at the moment - it's been a bad year for them, too. So scrape just a little bit together on the 17th and give. Starting a bit early in this Giving Season will go a lot further this Tuesday, and we're all for stretching our dollars this year!!

People are funny...those jokes get me in trouble, too.
My dearest friend says there is dark humor and then there is the stuff I say.
You are funny...and I look forward to your posts, no matter how snarky and facetious.
