I wrote 48 sonnets in 24 hours! And lived to tell about it!
I raised $1,010 for Doctors Without Borders, including one as-yet-unverified donation that I'm confident will be. Which is close to double what I had yesterday. Wow.
A huge thank you
to all of my sponsors. I would thank you all by name, but I'm not sure everyone who allowed their name to be known by me meant it to be public knowledge. Now, please remember that so far, you've made a promise.
You'll receive follow-up emails explaining how to make your actual donation. Be sure to do that!
Extra-huge thanks in a double thanks bag to Mark, Toad, shellefly
and Ella, who showed up and kept me company until three-thirty AM. And quintuple five-dimensional thanks to Mark for bringing, among other things, a dictionary of cultural symbols. Holy shit, so very awesome. You can bet that paid off in the painful hours of the morning.Yes, you can still pledge.
Pledges will remain open for at least 48 hours. Sponsor me in Blogathon 2006!
I started writing at 8:30am Saturday in order to post my first sonnet at 9am, the official beginning of Blogathon. So I finished my final sonnet at 8:30am this morning. However, to give you something fun to read now
, I'm attaching the "boneyard."
The boneyard is an outtake reel of lines that didn't make the cut. Some of them are rather entertaining. Particularly the partially completed ode to Marzipan
. Mmm, cool tapes.
And now I must sleep. If I can! Thanks again for all the lovely madness, and read back in my journal to catch all 48 sonnets. There's good stuff in there.
Sextuple love in a hyperdimensional squeezebox,boutell( The boneyard. )
