i always depended upon the kindess of not-quite strangers

The generosity of the people who make up the blogosphere has never ceased to amaze me. Adding to my complete awe of my readers is the news I received this week - a person who wishes to remain anonymous is sending me a laptop. A laptop. Dude, I'm getting a Dell. It should be here tomorrow. To that person: I cannot bestow enough kind words of thanks upon you. I'll buy a wireless card and whatever accessories I need with the money my generous benefactors have deposited in my Paypal account. I can now blog the GOP convention (though I'm still trying barter favors for a press pass) and any other interesting events outside of the house. I can blog from bed, from the train (in a box, with a fox). I promise not to blog while driving, though. My readers rock. Thank you.

well how cool is that?

Let me know if it was me. Otherwise, I need to cancel this strange charge on my credit card.

Laptop, you say? I need to get me some of these "readers"...

That is so cool!

Wonderful for you...much deserved (if you need it). Now if I could find someone, cheap-like-free to help me with scripting me-wee-blog. How do you find these people? :-)

Now this is gonna be interesting. And to think; I'll be able to say, "I read it when . . . "

A. Nonamous: the readers thank you.

It's obvious - your voice needs to be heard.

Now, I suggest a drive to outfit you properly for the convention....as much gaudy red, white, and blue decorative clothing/earrings/hats/shoelaces/hairbows as possible.

Do us proud, Michele. Go forth and blogify.

Well, remember Carol Burnett - someone helped her out when she was getting started. You, too, may someday help someone else, return the favor.

Congratulations - hey, have you thought about trying to get into the Tribeca Film Festival?

Okay, how's about blogging on a unicycle while juggling flaming democratic undergrounders?

That is great.

Kewl. See, there's a reason you're Number Five on that list, Michele.

Plus, you brought back the little dead girl. I think that's what tipped the scales.

Thank you, Anonymous. Your consideration is appreciated by many.

Michele: Go, girl!

LOL - no blogging while driving. Good call ;-) Very cool about the laptop as well. The internet's filled with idiots of all kinds, but for every 1,000 losers there's one really cool person.

And when is DU NOT flaming?

My offer of lodging directly across town from the site is still open. Did I mention I know a delegate and am lobbying to be his "assistant"?

I'm definitely clashing in the orange living room, Faith. I'm hoping you'll be my partner in crime that weekend.

Very cool, I might have a contact that could get you a press pass. Will email you.
