Better yet, who wants to see Corrado with a shaved head (not my wife & folks, by the way; that has been made ABUNDANTLY clear).
tl:dr - I'm paddling* in a Dragonboat race this weekend to raise money for Dragonheart Vermont, a group that help Cancer Survivors and their families. So I'm begging friends/family for money... again, and would sincerely appreciate some of your wine money. My "real name" for the donation form can be found by typing "Erin Enn".
Extended Details. This community has been exceedingly generous in terms of donating to charitable events where I have experienced physical trauma (Penguin Plunges). This event is actually going to be a lot of fun, so my hook for this one was $2500 = Corrado shaves his head (though since this is short notice, I'm dropping it to $2000 since I'm such an awesome guy).
torofrog countered with his own bet/challenge: $1000 raised and I run my next race in a kilt. I choose the design, he buys.
Since I'm too [self-depreciating adjective] to say, "No way," I said, "You're on!"
The Draqonboat race is this Sunday (8/4). To be reasonable, any donations posted by midnight PST on Friday 8/2 will count toward head-shaving. That gives you Friday-paycheckers and End-of-Month paycheckers no excuses!
I'll let torofrog specify the end date for the kilt challenge, but it's gotta be pretty soon thereafter since my next race in late August.
Right now I'm sitting at a very safe, Kilt-free donation level of $130. This link can change that!
* I'm told that "paddling," not "rowing," is the appropriate term for Dragonboat propulsion. To me it just sounds like fraternity hazing.

It's not my fault that I love Gatzby! He's such a pretty, pretty "man."
