SweetCharity, oi!

Yesterday the bidding opened for SweetCharity, and I don't know about all of you, but I'm having so much fun. I'm in a bidding war! A very, very low-powered one, thank goodness (and I'm really glad I set my budget before I started making bids, because some of the prices are already waaaaay out of my league).

You've still got plenty of time to take part, as the auction deadline is 26 Jan 08, 11:59PM GMT. The cause is a good one: The Writers Guild Foundation, which helps people affected by the writers' strike.

If you're interested in bidding for a Ho, I can tell you that there are still heaps of talented people with bid prices in the affordable range, which is pretty amazing when you consider that there's already nearly AU$10,000 worth of pledges! Wow. Given the way that total keeps climbing, I've already decided to donate AU$50 if I don't win a Ho. That would actually be kind of awesome -- just imagine that level of fan-powered generosity.

*thinks of all the donuts and coffee and pizza that kind of money would buy*

Talk about a win/win situation.

Also, people are bidding for my beta-reading skillz, which is very pleasing -- yay, for raising money for the cause! You are all awesome, thank you.

It occurs to me that now would be a good time to make another writing meta post, and I even have one half-written thanks to sholio. However, as I'm currently marking assignments for the writing class I'm teaching, it will have to wait.

(Are you impressed with how I just slid that promotional feature in there? That's the kind of precision writing talent I can bring to this party! ;)

My only real concern is that my PayPal account is so new, it squeaks. I'm a little worried I'll fuck up the buying end of things, and will have to make pathetic faces and offer to have someone's love-children and pay them back in cash if they will please, please, please buy my Hos (assuming I win any) for me. You are all on notice, okay? PayPal is easy, right? Everyone says so.

*goes off to check the low-powered bidding war*
