I'm starting this little message off with a personal note to a lot of
people: my friend Sarah, T.
Campbell, Don, and more. I've been very hard to reach for the past
month or so, in about any way imaginable. I dunno what's up but I've
felt like I've been having weird panic attacks and a lot of my direction
is just wandering. Rinny's made comments proving it's not just in my
head and a few other poeple have said as much, too. Sorry. I'm trying
to get myself together, guys. I wish I knew what was up.
Okay, well, THAT was awkward. So, on to this. I received an email from
a reader named Leigh Robb:
"I don't know if you get these sorts of
often or at all, but I

holiday suprise) unless I can get somewhere around $700 together. I have
barely $100 until the following week.
"If you could pass on word to your readers that I (Leigh,
appreciate any help: be it PayPal (same account), suggestions on how to
get money, or offers to buy video games or computer equipment... that
would be absolutely wonderful.
"Because it gets rather cold in Cincinnati this time of year.
"Thanks, for anything,
So I'm posting that here. I generally don't like doing that
never know if these emails are legit, although I did manage to find her
LJ and her mention of the problem there and I'd like to err on the side
of need with this one. So, if you can offer Leigh any words of support
or fiscal help, please do so. Sounds like she needs 'em. Take care of
A lot of people contacted Leigh in an effort to help her, with advice
and more. Thank you. -R
