4christina.org fundraising: If I'm doing the Excel spreadsheet correctly, we now have $2217.65. I'm probably not, though, so I'm going to have the Mominatrix come up here and look at what I'm doing. If you have donated and you do have a LJ (and therefore can use the poll), please log what you gave if you haven't already, because your donation may not have been included in the total otherwise. And please use that poll rather than just the comments, because it's easier to put into the spreadsheet that way, rather than hunting and pecking through comment sections. Anything you've given because you heard about it on Livejournal--any Livejournal--or Fandom Wank counts. I know we won't catch everything, which is fine--it's all going to Christina whether we tally it or not. But it will definitely help with the fundraising efforts to know how much we've gotten. And I think y'all should know, too, so you can feel proud of what you've accomplished.

I'm thinking I'm going to set the m15m fundraising goal at $5000--that is, let's add to the current $2217.65 total.



Today's horoscope: Get your friends together and have a baking party. Everybody loves cupcakes.

Weeeeird. I was downstairs helping Mom bake earlier--today she's making poppyseed bread, banana bread, pumpkin bread, pralines, thumbprint cookies, orange-slice cookies, and mini cheesecakes. (Dude.) If we had cupcakes, life would be perfect.

Apparently FOTR comes on TNT tonight. Maybe THIS will be the extended version. (It damn ought to be--they're running it for three hours and 45 minutes.)

Also, speaking of polls, the Christmas greeting thing is still open.
