Christine Gary, Tufts University cheerleader & marathoner in the 2007 President's Marathon Challenge

So i woke up this morning and my heart skipped a gleefull beat. My little marathon fundraising meter at the top left of my page had launched itself forwards thx to a plump $104 dollar donation!

Then I saw that the donor is somebody i don't know (that part's ok). But then i saw that he also wrote "Go Janet, Go"..........iunno, there's something about his word choice, I mean I could be wrong, but I kinda get the hunch that the donation was not meant for me. hahaha.

It was tempting to shrug it off as a mere trifle of a mistake and call it a day. Sure Stuart, for a $104 donation you can call me whatever you want. But don't worry, I've sent an email to the web site administrator letting them know. I trust the mix up will be fixed and the funds reallocated to their rightful owner soon. :o)

Danngggiiit, do i ever wish i was Janet.

And Janet, if you read this: Stuart deserves a big hug. haha. Damn nice guy that

Stuart, if you read this: can i be your friend?
