It’s, uh, been a while, huh? Yeah. Sorry about that.
So there’s lots of updates about various things but I’m not going to blast all of ‘em out in one huge post because, well,
- None of y’all would read the whole thing
- That’d leave me with nothing else to write about it in the short-term
- I don’t know if my attention span is long enough to write about it all right now.
Thus, in the next little while I’ll give a big update on health and drinking as it pertains to me, but right now we are all suffering from something much worse, and he’s only been in office less than two weeks.
(“Oh my god he’s getting political stick to booze you slow-blogging blogger mcbloggerson”)
No, I won’t. I haven’t been protesting and donating just to shut up.
But the other day, over on ye old Twitter-dot-com, a site which I sometimes wish I could quit so bad and other times can’t live without (and sometimes those are the same times), Will Gordon came up with an idea of #DrinkForGood. Basically, he said he was going to donate to the ACLU for every beer he drinks.
Will hasn’t posted a ton of details yet as he’s still building up on things but there’s an article here on it.
Now, I don’t drink anything like I used to drink (something I’ll get into in probably my next post, and I get reminded of everyday by Facebook’s “On This Day” feature). And I regularly donate to the ACLU anyways, as well as the HRC and other organizations that we need right now.
But I love this idea, so I’ll be joining in. Obviously, with a Twitter handle like mine I’ll be doing liquor and beer, but for every beverage, I’m going to donate a $2 bill (wahoowah) to the ACLU (not individually, as I only have one $2 bill on me). I’ll be tracking this on Twitter with the #DrinkForGood hashtag if you’re curious, and I’ll try to update on here with it some if it doesn’t get me in too much trouble with my doctors.
Six months ago I would’ve celebrated that by going out to a bar (such as the resurrected Passenger, which, again, I’ll get into in a later blog post) but I’m not drinking this week, so maybe this weekend we’ll get the ball rolling.
Are you interested in joining in? Tell me on the Twitter! Join our hashtag fun! And help save our republic!
