OFL Update Help a friend [Apr. 10th, 2013|08:12 am]
Sam
I've a very very good friend, who is on LJ inter alia, and she could use a little help. Here is the body of her LJ post:

So, while I was at the grocery store, I received a call from the Credit Union that holds the note to the totaled van. The gap insurance only paid a bit more than $3000 of the $8700 we still owed on the van.

Yeah. I'm going to the insurance commission. I may be trying to find a lawyer (but we don't have the money for a lawyer, so I don't know about that). But we need about $5500 in short order.

I've started a "GoFundMe" account. So it's not just me begging, I have put in a LOT of rewards, from $5 (a thank you card) to 8 reward levels of candy, ranging from $15 to $750 in price.

That's the link to the go fund me campaign.

If you can't or don't want to donate, please consider reposting this on any and every social media you are on (Facebook, LJ, DW, Twitter, ETC). And please consider posting this more than once. It's through repition that people really consider doing things.

Also, if you don't want to go through GoFundMe, my etsy store has the candy I make and am offering here, and you can just buy from there. (I will put up the things that aren't already on there.)

Thank you.

Also, if, through insurance commission or lawyer we get the money from the gap insurance place, I will donate every bit of money that was donated to me and help other people. If my campaign brings in more than the $6500 I'm asking for, I will also donate the overage.

I have known her for at least ten years, and I personally appreciate anything that anyone can do for her and her husband. Thank you.

Good morning Livejournal. Welcome to my day. :)

Less cold now than it has been, for sure, overcast, dark even, this morning on my drive to the shop, with lightening skies as I drove the 32 miles to the office. But the week calls for a warmup, so expect long lines at the car wash places near you. :)

My weight today was 244.9 pounds. That is 11.5 pounds off in 5 days. I've got 6.3 pounds of holiday weight to go. Thank You, Lord, with Your Divine Aid all things are possible, and without it, nothing good comes.

Spent Saturday with jen, when I wasn't at the shop. While I don't give intimate details of quiet nonpublic play, I can say that this is the first time research on the Intarwebz has ever actually had a good significant impact on my intimacy. There are certain issues because of our relative body sizes (she is a very small girl, I am a big guy; I'm not the envy of most hamsters gentleman's sausage-wise); she has a back injury and is recently post op for it, so her flexibility is impaired; etc.-and when I did some research I picked up some suggestions to help compensate for all the above-and they worked. Go Intarwebz! :)

It was a quiet, good, time with her. So relaxing in fact that Sunday after she left, after I did what I had to at the shop and made diunner for AImiee and I, I dozed off on the couch around 6:30 and woke up around 6:30 this morning. Guess I needed the crash. :)

Toothwise, I go back to the dentist tomorrow-just as the sensitivity is going away. Figures. :)

Be well all, be blessed, loved, and warm. :)

About two and a half hours ago, if thingfs were timely, my girl jen went under the knife for back surgery. I haven't heard anything yet. I am obviously worried and concerned-one of my loved ones is being carved on...

I hope to hear of her status soon.

What are you wary about today?


Deorbitting satellites and other spacecraft debris failing to burn up in the atmosphere and hitting me in the head on reentry. What, no one remembers Skylab? :)

How many digits of pi have you memorized?


None for me, thank you. I gave up pi (and cake and candy and all sweets) for Lent.
What's that famous mathematical formula? Oh yes... pi(rsquared). That's false actually. It's been scientifically proven that pi are round. CAKE are squared.

Introduce all your different personalities.


It is said that the kami, or spirits of nature of Shintoism, found in every special place, wind, force of nature, and so on, have two souls. One is "good", one is "bad" and you do not neceassirly know which soul is ascendant on a particular day. I find that to be a sufficient paradigm for the duality of the nature of man and it describes me well enough. But for those who have DID (what used to be called MPD), and those who know and love them, my heart goes out to you for I know this question, while undoubtedly meant to be lighthearted, can be triggering for you.
