I’ll try to sound coherent here, but it’s Sunday morning and the sun in shinin’ in my eye that is open and my head is reelin’ –
Wait, those are song lyrics to Shelley West’s “Jose Cuervo.” This is not the blog post you’re looking for. (Besides, this is Oregon. Everyone knows the sun doesn’t shine here. No jokes about “where the sun doesn’t shine.”) *ahem*
I mean its end.
It was supposed to end on Friday, but due to some issues with the Foundation we’re raising funds for (there’s a problem with sending confirmation receipts to people to show they’ve paid for their item, which is kind of important given we’re using those to confirm a donation made so we can send the winning bidder their item), it’s been extended through tomorrow – Monday, February 25, 2013, 5PM PST/8PM EST.
I’m writing this to goad you all into helping us reach our evil, lofty goal of an even $5000. Come on! One last push! We’re almost there!
If you’ve already donated- either an item for bid, given funds directly to the school district or via the auction – thank you from all of us at the Evil League of Evil Writers and Crestline Elementary School. You don’t know how grateful the parents, teachers, and kids are for these donations.
We have made people cry. We have crashed the Foundation donation website with our evil.
WE HAVE DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE, AND THAT MAKES US MIGHTY.
We have been Bad Guys (shiny!) for Crestline, and we couldn’t have done it without all of you.
“When you can’t run, you crawl, and when you can’t do that…well, you know the rest.”
Now if you all could carry us just a little bit further the rest of the way home, we’d take that as an eviltry. (It’s like “a kindness,” but without the negative connotations of doing something good. For lo, we are evil, and this is an Evil Auction.)
So, if you would – get out there, jump up and down, wave your arms around, do whatever you have to to get us noticed.
Let’s go out with a bang so loud they hear us all the way to the Core.
(Also, if you haven’t seen/watched Firefly – GO DO THAT NOW and follow it up with the movie Serenity so you can get all these cool geek references I’m throwing out.)
If you blog about the auction, remember there’s shinies in it for you! Here: http://evilauction.blogspot.com/p/spread-word.html
