Ok, so every year, two local radio hosts, (Dave and Carole from WKLH, for those who know Milwaukee) stay on the air for 60 hours raising money for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. They talk with parents and doctors and basically illustrate how many lives are touched and saved by the crew at CHW. Vaguely emotionally manipulative, but for a good cause.

This year, they've got a new donation thing that they call "Everyday Heroes" where you effectively donate $1 a day, paid monthly.

So I signed up. I told them I'm using my cigarette money. Which, obviously means I'm going to try to quit smoking cold turkey. I've got about a pack left. Which should take me through tomorrow night or into Saturday. And I'm not going to stuff my face and bloat up and totally trash my diet. No sirree.

I'm quitting smoking, dammit.

And I didn't even get anything cool with my Camel Cash.

Ah well.
