Africa safari raffle
Just one more very quick mention that the deadline for me to mail in the tickets for FCF's raffle of an African safari is tomorrow.  If you're someone I know and will see sometime soon, email me (at my LJ address) with your contact info (name/address/phone/email) and how many tickets you want, and I'll float you the money and collect the $10/ticket when I see you.  (Or you can purchase tickets on line through the above link, but you'll need to Paypal the money in, for an extra $1.)  The retail value of the prize is around $7000 and so far there have only been 600ish tickets sold, so it's actually good odds as well as a good cause.  I won't mention it again (unless I or someone I sold a ticket to wins).

It is supposed to be past the deadline for more tickets. I don't know if they will still accept more on-line ticket sumbmissions (even though they probably aren't together enough to close the web site). The person in charge of the mail-in is following the strict letter of the official rules (he told me not to mail in another couple of tickets two days ago, even though he'd easily have gotten them before the Feb. 12 drawing). If he makes the decision about the on-line purchases also, he will probably refuse to enter you. If so, he will probably send your money back. I appreciate your interest, but I wouldn't suggest that you try to enter now.

I forget when I get behind in livejournal that "tomorrow" isn't really tomorrow but a few days ago. There aren't any deadlines listed on the web page but I took my link down, did you post about this earlier and I just missed it?

And I forget when I write things in an electronic medium that the reader may not read them the same day as I write them and I shouldn't use words like "tomorrow" without at least qualifying them.

I did post about it, weeks ago, and I didn't want to spam people's friends pages by talking about it over and over. I didn't sell very many of these tickets because I'm not very comfortable about bringing up "hey, why don't you give me some money for this?" in a conversation.
