Get your Cringe book right here!

Okay, people: Tomato Nation is kicking my ass all over town. This cannot stand. If you want to see me dress as Pat Benatar, you've got to take action. I'm not asking for much. Seriously, if everyone reading this donated five dollars right now, I could pull ahead by the end of the day. And you know what that means! Headbands! Scott dressed up as a sleazy dance-parlor manager! I've already said too much!

Because it seems that love being a battlefield is not incentive enough, here's this:

If you donate in the next three hours (That's 11:30 am EST - 2:30 am EST) and email me with a receipt of your donation, you will be in the running for one of ten copies of Cringe, the hilarious anthology of teen angst edited by Sarah Brown. (Thank you, Sarah and Random House, for the gifts!) I will have a third party choose randomly from the emails I receive.

Important note: in order to be considered, your email must have the subject line CRINGE ME! Thank you in advance, lovely reading people.

P.S.: there's a new Alphamom column up. It's about the vice-presidential debate. I have opinions.

Okay, I give up. I donated already.

But, hey, yesterday you wrote, "Normal self-involved content will resume tomorrow." Can we stop this madness and go back to hilarity already?

Maybe it's the wrong incentive. I'm thinking of your list of jobs you were bad at, and I'm imagining you back waitressing at the country club.

I'm mean like that.

I think, sadly, that beating Sars from Tomatonation might not be possible. I think she was something like tripple the closest blog last year. But! You are leader of the pack in both the "mommy blogs" list and the "blogher" list, so really that should totally count as winning and get us a Pat Benatar video. Really.

Good job on the Wonderland post! I was watching the debate as well yesterday, and as a Democrat I have to admit she charmed even me a bit. Not enough to sway me over to the dark side though! I'm glad you posted that article, it helped me realize some things that I did not realize before.

i think you're running an illegal lottery. is it void where prohibited? and only open to persons over the age of 18, in 50 states but not puerto rico. KEEP DONATING, people!

I donated to Sars's challenge first, but I now have a vested interested in a Love is a Battlefield reenactment, so I sent the Myths project a little love. Good luck.

hey, i donated $20 yesterday, does that count?

Uh, I am a little annoyed with the Donor's Choose site. According to your page, you had 99 donors, around $3500. I donated, refreshed, refreshed again, and still 99 donors show. I wanted to be 100, dammit! Okay, wait, refreshed AGAIN and now there are 100. Off to read Wonderland now. Have a nice day. :)

Gosh, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all you are doing on Although my class proposals aren't part of your list, I just think it is awesome how much people are giving to help fund these wonderful projects for classroom teachers and students. Hats off to everybody involved! Thanks for caring for others and SHOWING it! 1st grade teacher

P.S. I love the Alphamom column... couldn't agree more!
