When I Am Rich: A Donation With Strings Attatched.

They say that there is no such thing as bad publicity. I’m guessing that there are certain notorious types who might differ with that concept. Still, that’s what they say and when have “they” led us astray before? I kept what “they say” in mind when I decided on the next outlandish expenditure I am going to make when the money from this blog starts rolling in.

If one of them just thought it would be cool to have a third kidney, they get it.  Read the rest of this entry »
