(no, it’s not about my Google reader this time. I promise.)
Did you actually make it this far in the post? Good for you! I appreciate that you didn’t bail out on me with the lure of all those shineys above. Or, at least, you came back to check on me.
I have to share this, even though it’s a total /facepalm moment for me.
You see, I did win the Swagdog code that Gnomeaggedon so generously donated to the Child’s Play Charity Auction. But it was not out of the goodness of my dark lil ‘lock heart that made me pass the code onto a guildie. (Sorry to let you down, dear Gnomer.)
It was to compensate for my idiotic mistake.
Yeah, the shirt had only one bidder. A sweet, kindhearted guildie.
Thing is, when I went to order it and ship it to her, well, the shirt wasn’t available. I mean, the design was there, but I couldn’t do anything with it. See, inside the heart was Syrana’s face from the old banner we had. So, it was flagged as questionable. Oops. (I should have ordered the one and only copy of the shirt evah right away! I mean, that was bad, shoulda never been on there! >.>)
Yep. So here I am, sputtering and swearing at my computer that I can’t order this shirt that someone bid on to donate to charity. Then it hits me, I could just pass along the code I won. That way, everyone wins. My guildie can order a shirt, I still donated to the charity, and the children can play!
