A month or so ago, my good friend Jeffraham entered a contest for a free scooter with the intention to hand the groovy prize over to me should he win. He and I promoted it as well as a couple of blogger dudes could, but in the end it looks like he (we) came in no higher than eighth place. That's the bad news. The good news is that it was an awesome gesture on his part and I was humbled from day one to day now.
I've had a rough go of it financially this past year and so has Jeff. (And so have so many of our friends. Jeez!) Hopefully, we'll all find ourselves on the upswing soon enough and be able to afford things like better transportation, meetups with friends, and, um, rent and groceries and stuff. Anyway, I just wanted to make mention of how much I appreciated what Jeff did for me in regards to the scooter contest. Every time he linked to the site asking people to vote, I was reminded of the friendship I have among all of these bloggers. I promise that if and when I find my niche and find that nice mix of free time and disposable income, I'll attend every get-together that invites me.
