As you know, my computer is infected with some sort of Alanis Morissette swine flu, so my blogging will be somewhat interrupted until it recovers. I can use Jeff's computer (as I am doing now), but it's located in his Man Cave, which is like our apartment's version of the Fire Swamp from The Princess Bride. There aren't any Rodents of Unusual Size but there are Ashtrays of Unusual Fullness and iTunes of Unusual Loudness. Judging by the floor, it is also where all of our socks travel to breed, like in March of the Penguins.
Anyway, there won't be a TGI...WTF today (or at least not till later), because I have a reader request that I felt compelled to share. Reader Anna wrote to me asking if I would help her win a photojournalism scholarship, and you know me—I never shy away from a good deed that doesn't require me to get off my ass. Also I have a soft spot for photographers. (Not that soft spot. I mean my heart, people. My heart.)
Anyway, here's the deal, as explained by Anna:
I'm an aspiring photographer and want to study photojournalism in college, and I recently entered a photo scholarship contest sponsored by SIGMA. It requires the public to vote for the photographers, and the top 3 with the most votes at the end of this April are the only three considered for the scholarship. I need about 400 more votes to get myself in the top 3.
Vote for Anna here! Let's get her a scholarship! Consider it your good deed for the day (or week, month, year—whatever).
P.S. All you need to do to vote is provide your email and then respond to a confirmation email from Sigma. It went into my Gmail spam folder, so check your spam.
