We raised over $60,000.

That’s $20,000 more than last year, all for the homeless and hungry people helped by FareStart.

Thank you so, so much. I can’t tell you how grateful we are.

If you won your auction, congratulations!

If you didn’t, consider giving a little something of what you would’ve bid:

Thank you all—donors, bidders, the people who worked to make this happen—a thousand times over.

Happy holidays, everybody.

Who paid fastest?

Posted by Fnarf | December 14, 2007 5:14 PM

Good work. I just added another little bit!

I just finished paying - would have been done sooner, but my laptop decided to inexplicably power-off right as I was about to confirm all my cc info.

Who is the Slog star?

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 14, 2007 5:55 PM

Oh, and why can't you tell us how grateful you are? HMMM?

Fantastic! All of the people who should be weeded out by means of natural selection will have their pathetic existences prolonged just a little bit.

Posted by Chris | December 14, 2007 6:29 PM

Just kidding.

GOOD work, easy to give, bid, all online.

Added a little via pay pal, but lost the bid on four items. Too frugal, I think.

Go for the big 100,000. for next year ... nice work.

It's pretty neat you all did this. Although I've been disappointed in other stands Slog has taken over the last months, this showed some class. Nice work!

Did Mr. Poe get his abortion?

Posted by NapoleonXIV | December 14, 2007 8:24 PM

Mayor of West Seattle! MacNcheese for a year!

Posted by M | December 14, 2007 8:52 PM


Fnarf took it from me. But I still won.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 14, 2007 9:11 PM

So what did everyone win? Will you guys be posting the final results?

Posted by James | December 14, 2007 9:16 PM

@5 I'll take your sofa, if it's free or under $20. I will even come get it from you. Let's pretend Slog is Craigslist.

Posted by Katelyn | December 14, 2007 11:33 PM


Hey, and I need a new bed. :D

Posted by violet_dagrinder | December 15, 2007 11:04 AM

@17 The sofa is actually a futon with one of the thickest mattresses I could buy--I don't want my friends to sleep on cheap shit. If you want, the futon is yours, my friends apparently don't need one.

@18 I bought the bed from IKEA back in '99, so all you need do is buy yourself a new mattress. The bed is easy to assemble, I still have the allen wrenches for it.

Posted by -J. | December 15, 2007 11:40 AM

Oh, and you can both have the futon and bed for free. Selling them, that's just so tacky, y'know?

Who won the Slog for a Week prize? Was it ecce? Don't keep up in suspense.

Posted by keshmeshi | December 15, 2007 1:30 PM

You used to be able to get abortions at the Deluxe Bar and Grill.

Failing that, you can do them at home...

Posted by NapoleonXIV | December 16, 2007 12:03 AM

Heh, Napoleon.

Posted by Lloyd Clydesdale | December 16, 2007 7:53 AM

That's awesome! I think abortion is hilarious. If I was having one, I'd probably be a lot like Maggie in Happy Endings, only less assertive and more happy.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 16, 2007 11:38 AM

We don't exactly know who won Slog rights yet--I mean we know who won but not WHO won. I don't recognize the alias nor the e-mail address.
