Programming note... I'm planning to be here on Monday, but it's going to be a short day because I have an appointment to get my hair dyed. I made the appointment almost 2 months ago and I'm very excited. I'm going to look very different if all goes according to plan.

Please consider donating during this week's fundraiser and thank you so much to everyone who already has. I can't do this without you.
