Last year, when i first started doing the email penpal thing, people wanted to say thanks. people were felt awkward. i felt awkward. everyone was awkward. I created the tiny gift button, and once or twice a week some money magically arrives there. Sometimes it’s $2 and sometimes it’s loads more. Sometimes I can’t even tell who sent it.
About 2 weeks ago Jacques recommended a book to me and offered to buy it for me. she sent me cash and i bought the book on amazon here in my local country, where i can get most books in english but shipped from europe so it’s fast.
Then i got peanut butter in the mail! (no kidding!)
Then this week i got another request. and i thought ok, i’ll just put up a tiny list of treats that i will get with the Tiny Gift Button donations, so you know where the funds will go…
the next bit of donations will be used as follows:
Josey Baker Bread: Get Baking – Make Great Bread – Be Happy! (20,94€) thanks R a can of PAM (you won’t believe it, but it’s 9€ a can here, but i can’t make cheesecakes without it)thanks R flowers for my desk (about 7€)– thanks B a freaking hair cut (i have long hair so i put this off forever) (about 45€)thanks G
and if you think this is completely and utterly strange, or if you think i’m full of shit, that’s ok. you can look away. I’m looking away myself as I type …
