Blogathon 2006 Post # 49

Look at that number, peeps. Forty nine. Has there ever been a sweeter number? Because 49 means I did it. I posted every thirty minutes for 24 hours and lived to tell the tale. This wasn't easy.

I'd like to thank the Academy, my sponsors, my readers, and most of all Ellen, without whom I could never have thought of so much to say. If you like the topic you've been reading, Ellen sells decks of cards on her site that can be used for conversation openers. My daughter has taken them to camp twice, and has used them with her friends and bunkmates to get to know each other. The cards are brilliantly illustrated by none other than Ellen herself! Check them out.

Also, I want to mention that if you haven't yet sponsored me because you thought I was a lightweight and would never make it to the end, or because you figured someone else would do it in your place, then take heed. You can still pledge for 48 more hours. Yes, you still have too whole days to realize that I've worked my ass off to make this both interesting and enjoyable for you, dear readers, and all I ask in return is a little bitty pledge, or a big giant pledge, whichever comes first in your wallet, to help support the good works that Children's Hospital in Boston does for children all over the world. Remember, they never turn any child down for lack of insurance or inability to pay. And they do so because of the generous donations from sponsors like you. So please be generous and make a pledge.

I would like to be...

The Boy wants me to say healthier. I want to say wealthier. But the real answer is neither. I would like to be a better person. A richer, healthier better person, for sure, but a better, less impatient, more accepting person. But richer is good, too. So, if you happen to be my fairy godmother, I'll promise to be a better, nicer, kinder person, but you have to drop some cash. Deal?

This is it, folks. The end of the Blogathon. 24 hours, 49 posts, one very tired old lady and one cranky teenager who has already woken up. Lila tov. Or Bokker tov. Whatever....

I love Ellen, I don't always win the battle to watch her show though, Playhouse Disney sometimes wins out lol.
