A thank you to the donor who donated a donation this morning. I presumably know you by an internet handle (if I know you at all) because your real name is not ringing any bells. Mind you, that could just be because I am rubbish with names... You're going to be somebody I know fairly well now I've said that, aren't you?

Perhaps should spend the donation on memory drugs of some kind... Sadly the donation wasn't enough to buy this, but if anybody DOES want to give me £175,000 (preferably anonymously so that I just feel generalised rather than specific guilt) I won't say no. The donation link is in the sidebar to your right.

You might notice that I have a new little thing in my sidebar, in between Holly's wishlist and my paypal link, and it looks like this:

Flattr this

Yup, I got my invite code for Flattr. If you've never heard of flattr, it's a sort of cross between hitting "like" on Facebook, and paypal. The video below explains all:

I put in a small amount of money, I flattred Jesus and Mo (because, hey, they're Jesus and Mo, and the barmaid in that strip is my idol), and now I get to get flattred myself, assuming people like what they read enough to give me a slice of their pie.

Flattr is in closed beta at the minute, so I suspect it's unlikely I will start making more than I put in any time soon - I'm not cool enough - but if you want in, I do have three invite codes to give out. Interested? Say so in the comments.

Hopefully this is the kick in the pants I need to get the wife to tell me how to code the little row of buttons under each post which he has on his blog, too...

Personal Budget

I've been doing mine. It's very depressing. Things like clothes and dentistry and new glasses come under can't afford this right now, which is very annoying because I really need a new bra. BUT I can make it balance, and still afford to go climbing with my dad and do Liberal Drinks once a month, as long as I am very very careful, and also save all my tips from work instead of drinking them. This is not going to be easy.

Still, Mat is doing paid work today, and we have a paid blog redesign project to do together, so there is light at the end of the tunnel...

... I have £2.50 in my purse. I cut up my credit card last month because I was getting worryingly near the limit. I have nothing in my bank account. I have run out of cigarettes. I haven't had a cigarette all day and am only twitching slightly.

So now's as good a time as any to try and give up, yes? If I can make it through next week I then have a week off work and that should help enormously.

Why am I posting this here? Because if I make insane emotional outbursts or angry posts in the next couple of weeks, I want you all to remember that going cold turkey from cigarettes is supposed to be worse than going cold turkey from heroin. So I might not be entirely rational for a while. But then again, when was I ever?
