October 17th I’ll be running the Nike Women’s Marathon (yes I know) with Team in Training in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. And I need your help. For the three people who actually read this blog, please help me out if you can. I’ll even try and sweeten the deal with the following:
I am selling my body parts. I haven’t had to resort to selling my entire body but I am willing to do so. In the meantime, I am selling off various body parts. $50 each. For an arm, a leg, a thigh, hands etc. You will own that space for the entirety of race-day and put anything you like there: a marker message of hope, a drawing, or an opportunity to call me names, deride my appearance and call into question why I’m even alive, breathing your delicious oxygen. Swearing is encouraged.
Secondly, I am also selling space on my “Get Totally Pumped Race Playlist.” If it was up to me it’d be filled with nothing but Billy Ocean and Van Halen. But it’s not up to me. For $5 you can make me listen to any song you want. You can lift my spirits by getting the Led out or you can torture me with Yanni. Your choice. Buy multiples or put up whole albums. And if I barf along the way it might just be because of your Mannheim Steamroller.
So please help out if you can. I’ll send you a pic of the body part you buy and your song in my playlist and I’ll periodically update this post to indicate who bought what (if anything). You can leave your message or song in the comments section on the donation page. And remember, cancer strikes anyone, anywhere. And while it might not be a part of your life now, if may be in the future. So let’s fucking cure it, eh?
