Whoever it was who bought me a subscription, thank you. I appreciate the kindness. That said, I certainly didn't need anyone to buy me a subscription. I can afford my own. I just never bought one because A) I didn't mind the ads, and B) I figured kos was making a living off the site, as it was, and this was his business.

So now I have all of this guilt because some anonymous human bought me a subscription. How am I going to live with myself? How can I keep posting here? Jeezus H. Kryst, you damned anonymous subscription purchaser, you've ruined this place for me!

Okay, okay, there is only one thing I can do to assuage the guilt trip laid upon me by the anonymous purchaser: pass along the guilt by buying an anonymous subscription for someone else I love here who deserves a subscription. I have someone in mind. And I will undertake the purchase shortly.

With that, I want to make one thing clear: I'm warning you, kos, I better see a hundred bucks worth of improvement in this place pretty quickly once I drop my C-note. If I find out you're simply using all of this money to fuel your expensive bicycle addiction, I'll call you out in a diary that will be talk of the blogging world.

So, thank you to my anonymous benefactor. I'm off to drop a hundred of my own hard-earned bucks on someone who deserves the honor.

Geez, this inherent kindness stuff is hard...

Okay, I didn't realize that I had received an email from the person who had purchased my subscription. The email address I use for my Daily Kos registration is one I never check because I use it primarily for registering for sites, junk mail, etc. I look at it once a month just to clean it out. And I didn't realize that I would receive an email informing me of the gift-giver, if the giver didn't wish to remain anonymous.


You just cost me a hundred bucks!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
