I don't know what's gotten into me lately that I am feeling so positive. My normal pessimistic self kind of hates this new happy go fuckity Io, but I can't help it. Don't get me wrong. I still wish I had a child/didn't live in the ghetto/had a puppy who didn't suddenly decide that eating cat poop is a good idea. (Eeeeewwwwwww. How do I stop this behavior? The cat poop thing, not the happy.)
Maybe it's all the fiber.
Maybe it's the exercise.
Maybe it's calling Dr. Dick's office and having no problem whatsoever having the billing department agree right off that not only did I not owe them another two grand, but sure they can send me $120. Not like winning the lottery or anything but it puts us officially under five grand for the procedure.
Maybe it's finally getting more batteries for my camera because I am SO taking part in this and I need to be able to take pictures of all the things I am going to put up for auction. Calliope's blog was one of the first IF blogs I read. I was floating around the internet and somebody linked to her and from her blog I found the whole community. I rarely comment on her blog because I'd feel like a silly groupie or something. (She just has that "rock star taking care of her grandmother" vibe I guess.)
I urge all of you to see if you can find something that could go up on eb*y to help raise money for her. I don't exactly have a ton of valuables sitting around, but I know I can find something, even if it's just a little thing. And if we all did just a little bit, we could help give that baby a start. It's like march of dimes, only even earlier in the timeline.
Yeah! Let's do this! [Io runs off waving her arms like a madwoman in pursuit of eb*y items]
