Well, as christmas approaches we all gather together with family and loved ones to celibrate this holiday. Even though I'm sure people are probably already preparing for the occasion, I'd still like to wish everyone here happy holidays!

Ah, the holiday season. The one time of year I become torn between the hatred of a holiday for being so commercialized, and the overwhelming joy it somehow brings anyway.

....holy crap I still don't have presents for anyone ><;;; Gotta get to work!

Anyway, like data said, happy holidays everyone! Be it christmas, hannukah, kwanza, winter solstice, christmahannukwansolstikah, or some other holiday I don't know about :P
I don't hate everyone, I'm just very, very disappointed in them.

Oh, and I want to give a shout out to Aetre and DC Bueller to say thanks for donations!

*Is still shocked at how much DC gave.*

i'd have given more, but the majority of my charity money this year went to www.childsplaycharity.org

it's all good, though; i just have a bit of a soft spot for children.

in any case, rock on. i still say this is the best free hosting imaginable, and i'm grateful for the service, so i just wanted to send a little "thank you." :)

Oh, please don't get me wrong, I was not at all suggesting you didn't give enough!

But yeah, Child's play... I bought about a half dozen items for the dallas hospital. One of my favorite comics, Shivae, well her new-born daughter ended up there. Figured I'd do that instead of a cash donation like I did last year. I just couldn't resist buying copies of the lion king for sick kids. :-)

i hear ya. i've been very lucky so far with my health, but i have several friends and family who've needed care as children. anything to bring them a little cheer is worth the effort.

I seem to have lost all recovery information for my Paypal account, so I had to make a new one.  It may be a few days.

My family donated a ton to charities through their church.  I have no idea which ones, but I think they're local.  I just gave them a check and slept in.

My paypal account recently was broke into, so I shut it down and haven't messed with it now. I hate going to banks and cancelling/changing crap when that happens. >.<

What's funny is, the password was a randomized alphanumerical too.
