I Am an Official Blogathon Moral Supporterizer!

This is here partly to remind me to do something, and partly to let others know that they can do something, too:

Starting Saturday, July 28th at 9 a.m. Eastern Time (6 a.m. my time) is Blogathon. During Blogathon, for TWENTY-FOUR FREAKIN' HOURS, people post entries to their journals every half-hour. To salute their sleep-depriving efforts, people pledge donations to the bloggers' chosen charities.

Four people I know are taking part: shadesong, slipjig, zarhooie (via her auxiliary LJ llama_go_moooo) and rafaela (via her extra, also-made-special-for-Blogathon LJ star_barnkitty). One neat thing: They'll all be blogging from the same house, so they can help keep each other awake.

And while they slowly go all basket-case-y as the 24 hours progress, I'll be online on my computer, commenting like mad, helping keep them engaged, and giving them moral support. Like I did last year. That was a lot of hours, and a lot of comments. I even wrote a song:
It is on!
'Tis a writing marathon!
Words, many words, are its
sine qua non!
Not by swans!
Sri Lanka was once Ceylon!
The verge of sleep or psychosis is what we're all upon!
OK, now I need to figure out what I'm donating to them...
