Yikes! You did it!

You did it with a little over an hour and $9 to spare! The target for next week will stay at $100. Someone was carping--mildly, but still carping--that the target has been moving up too fast. Well, there's a lot more of you guys out there than there were even a couple of weeks ago. Last week's target was $50, and you contributed enough that we were almost halfway to $100 before we even reset the target. Effectively, I was asking for just a few dollars more this week than last--less than ten, to be exact. But it's going to stay at $100 until you guys wildly overshoot it, which is what happened last week.

So anyway, I gotta get writing. I'm about a page into it; I really didn't expect you to make it, and haven't been cracking on as I usually do. Watch for it tomorrow.

Do you carry over donations from one week to the next? If the target is overshot by, say, 120/100, is there an automatic 20/100 next week?

Last week the target was $50 and everyone contributed $96, so when this week's target went up we were at $46/$100 right out of the gate. This week the total was $109 ($54 total in new contributions), so we're starting the target at $9/$100.

there is, which is why we currently have $9 towards next week's goal.

To the book store. and the comic book store. and well i got to eat so the grocery store sometimes. But in all seriousness i'm working 6 days a week and terrible hours at that so i don't have that much time for a social life plus i just moved so i don't know a lot of people around here. But things will get better. And trust me your work is too good not to get worked up over.

Edit: this is my 50 point post! gonna go ask for a story. MWUHAHAHAHAHA! *my laugh is an evil extra story getting laugh!*

Just moved, we didn't have a car for the first year we were here, and in LA you don't really go anywhere if you don't have a car (since we couldn't afford a taxi, and busses = motion sickness) Blum 3
