Celeb I Win

When I sent my last post to Amy Kate, I felt better than I had since this whole Slog debacle began. I'd said my piece and was ready to wash my hands of the whole issue. While I don't think of myself as a quitter, it has always been my policy, when I find myself in a shitty situation, to get the fuck out. So that's what I did, and I couldn't have been happier. Maybe I am thin-skinned, but trading insults with strangers has never been my idea of a good time. I am fully aware that for a lot of commenters this is a game. That's fine. It's just not a game I'm interested in playing. Especially since I wasn't getting paid for it.
Until, that is, I got an e-mail from Amy Kate, telling me that none other than Tim Keck was disappointed that I was quitting, and that he would like to up the ante. One dollar for every comment on 'Fuck This, I'm Out' posted before 4 pm... if I was willing to write about how I spent the money. I agreed, and since then have been hitting refresh on the thread, watching the money roll in. I saw a lot of assholes being assholes, and nice people being nice. But what I was really glad to see was people discussing the state of the comments on Slog, which I hoped would happen.
But I digress from the point of this post, which is this:
I win, bitches!
I'll be back next week with how I spent the money. Enjoy your weekend!
