Thanks, Phil!

So sometimes you make a mistake with someone's name and it sticks, right? Or does this only happen to me? So I get a text from CK when I'm in Vegas that says "My friend XXXXXX is at the MGM bar, he's a blogger and wants to meet up with people." So I make it a point to try and meet this guy, but I'm drunk. Way drunk. So I go up to him later and say "Hey Phil!"

Except his name isn't Phil. But at this point I've introduced him to people as Phil, and it's starting to stick. So now, he's got an unintentional nickname, due in part to the fact that he was wearing a Phillies jersey when I met him, and in much larger part to the fact that I was hammered when I met him. So we hang out a bunch over the next couple of days in Vegas, and I finally just figured that as nicknames go, Phil is pretty harmless, so just go with it.

I mean, come on, he could take his his nickname from a cereal, for fucksake.

But that's not the point. The point is that yesterday I asked for some html help, and Phil stepped up, big time. The banner below is his work, and I appreciate it. So if you've got a few minutes to tweak your blogs and put up this banner, either on the blog or in a post, to help me raise money to fight cancer, I would greatly appreciate it. Cancer has touched so many lives in so many nasty ways, that this is one way that you can help me fight it.

And if I raise enough money, I promise not to post photos of me in spandex.

Phil Rocks!

Hell I'm TERRIBLE at names, and until I've met you a couple of times, its sir, mamm. Cause I don't want to call you Jack, when your name is Jim. :-)

Been there done that!
