Oh and I pledge $25 to the winning charity.

I thought I someone has already mentioned but let me know where I should PayPal the money as I'm pretty heavily sedated at the moment and can only focus for about 3 seconds.

Olive von Treesong and Spencer von Treesong will happily accept with wagging tails and satisfied light growls, should their nominations be accepted.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

Oh, not at at all, not even close. Mrs. T has long mildly disapproved of my involvement with 2p2. She seems to think y'all are a bunch of fat teenage degens sitting in your underwear in your parents' basements. I have tried to convince her that this is not so, but have never fully been successful. Olive and Spencer adore y'all, if only because they get scraps every time I work on my steak game.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

I'd like to reiterate that there is no need to send any money unless you want your money physically riding on the wheel spin for the gambooooool. It's perfectly OK to just pledge in the thread and then handle the donating on your own if you'd like. Lots of people took that approach and posted screenshots of their donations the last couple of times we did this.

It is certainly sweet to see the board loaded down with bets and gobbo (in addition to being an overall great guy) is one of the most trustworthy people on 2p2 and I'd have no problem trusting him with my own $, but I want to make it absolutely clear that no one is under any obligation or expectation to send any money. Except Howard, of course. Who ditches gobbo for dinner?!!

If you do decide to ship the monies, fully understand that gobbo and I will probably just steal your literally hundreds of dollars (/yeota) and go live at Oyshi until we run out of money or they run out of salmon belly nigiri, whichever comes first.

Sent $37 to Jimmy, $1/number please.

If I did it right and am not too late, of course. Hard to believe I lasted this long without a PayPal account and I'm just now figuring it out.

Great idea chopstick. Thanks much gobbo for being our transfer.

Yeah, I know. I tied one on after busting the ridiculously easy seniors event and was horribly hung over. It was not a mature thing to do on my part.
