Help a Susie out?

14Jan09

Last night I got an e-mail from Susie of WeAreNotMartha.com and Everyone Loves a Boston Girl fame. I was hesitant to open it as her Celtics had beaten my Raptors in overtime the night before. After the Raptors had led most of the game. Curses!

While Susie is a sweetiepie, she is also a fan of the Patriots, Celtics and, I assume, the Red Sox. *shudder*

In this instance it was a sweetiepie e-mail. She is doing something kick-ass for charity and all of you (with Facebook accounts) should help her out.

I’m going to paste in exactly what she sent me. Otherwise I might screw it up, and then we’ll have this discussion:

Susie: Pfft.  What can you expect from a Colts fan?

Peter: I’m sorry, but you have to be at least *this* tall to talk smack to me.

Susie: Are you calling me short?

Peter: Follow the- follow the- follow the yellow brick road.

Susie: You want to take this outside, you giant jerkface?!

Peter: Bring it, pint-size.

Then I’ll pull a knife.  Then she’ll pull of gun.

Which, let’s face it, is kinda silly since this is an e-mail conversation.

Anyway, here is Susie’s dealie:

We are not Martha has been asked to participate in a really exciting promotion/contest. We are one of 25 blogs chosen to participate for a chance to win $5,000 that we can donate to a hunger charity of our choice. We’re really hoping to win the money so we can donate it to the Greater Boston Food Bank, but we need your help!

Here’s what we need you to do:

1) Read our blog post at www.wearenotmartha.com (will be posted at 10 a.m. on Wed) and follow the link to http://www.startwithsubstance.com/ to get to the Quaker Facebook fan page

2) Download and print out a copy of the Quaker Oatmeal man

3) Take your picture with him and upload the picture to the Facebook fan page

4) Put the link to your photo in the comments section of We are not Martha

*Only one person should be in each photo

Each of the 25 blogs has a designated day. Since ours is Wednesday you have between 10 a.m. on Wed. and 10 a.m. on Thurs to post your photos. Feel free to print the Quaker man out and pass him around your office, letting your co-workers post their pictures too. The blog that gets the most people to post their photo with the Quaker man, wins the $5,000!

We’re really excited about this and are hoping we can win the money to donate. Let us know if you have any questions. We seriously appreciate your help sooo much!

  1. Hmm I must be pretty desperate if I’m asking a Colts fan for help.

    Just kiddinggggg, I’m just giving a Colts fan the opportunity to show he still has a heart.

    See? Isn’t that nice of me?

    :) Seriously though, thank you sooo much!!

  2. hahah Follow the yellow brick road. I’m using that! thanks. ;)

  3. Any fellow Red Sox fan will always have my support! Clearly she is woman of fine character and taste.

    OK OK so I hate the Celtics, but I’m a Knicks fan so I’d better keep my mouth shut about basketball.

  4. 4 Matt

    So in regards tp this charity we get to pick…

    what is your exact definition of charity?

  5. If I “know” any Facebook people, I’ll let them know…
