The Minx just pointed out to me that the official Blogathon site is reporting that the pledges from all the sponsors is now totaling over $83,096.41! We’re betting it will hit 85 Grand before the night is out.
While I’m at it, I’d like to take a moment and thank my good friend Michael Brady, whom I mentioned in my earlier entry on being a voice actor, for his signing up to sponsor me this evening. Of course it took my mentioning him to get him to sign up, but that’s OK because he’s worth it. He dropped me a note a little while back mentioning that he’s going to be at the next Dragon*Con coming up in Atlanta during the weekend of August 29th – Sept. 1st, 2003. This year is their first year for having any anime related stuff at the con and Michael’s going to be some of the panels there as well as performing a short story by Orson Scott Card with some fellow actors in a radio drama style. If you’re going to the con be sure to drop by and say hello to him and compliment him on having such fine friends as myself.
