It's mid-November and you know what that means...I GET REALLY PLANNY HOLIDAY-Y.
I am not sure I have the spoons to do much except cheerlead this year and possibly get some things in the mail myself (some of them really really LATE), so Jen P is stepping in to be spreadsheet and communications czarina.
The Holiday Card Exchange IS ON!! Here is the link to fill out the info form to get in on the mailtime goodness. [link]
Happy Thanksgiving, and another call-out for holiday card interest! I know the line breaks don't work -- no problem at all, just use commas or whatever.
The link: [link]
Let's see... how about a deadline of five more days for sign-up, Tuesday, Nov. 30th. (Will try to get your info. to you by end of the day next day.)
Does this count as spamming Press? Maybe!
Today's the day -- if you'd like to participate in the b.org holiday card exchange, please sign up at the link in the previous post (don't worry about the line break issue in the form) by today.
I will send out your recipient list to you on Wednesday, 12/1.
Please try to have your cards in the mail by (what was it? ::checks::) January 6th.
(If you end up needing a relief pitcher, just let me know - completely fine if it happens; don't give it a second thought. Well, other than letting me know; do give it that thought. But don't beat yourself up, is what I'm saying.)
OK, holiday card assignments sent! If you didn't get an email from me, please email me at my profile addy. A couple of the addresses looked like they might be old, and I checked the B.org Master Mailing list, but those were no more updated for the couple I'm not sure about.
To avoid any possible confusion, your personal list to send to is in body of the email, but if you opted in to receive the complete address list, you have the complete list attached. Not expecting you to send to everyone on it!
So, your list of recipients is in the email; whole list attached in case you are feeling more writery than you thought.
Again, if you need a pinch hitter, just let me know.

I am arranging a food delivery to Hil next week. If you would like to join or help, please write to my email (in the profile addy).
I'm working with Shir on food delivery to Hil. We've run into a bit of a snag with the place that Shir identified as being both Kosher and vegan. They don't deliver. I understand that Uber has something called Uber eats where they'll pick up takeout orders and deliver them, but I don't have an Uber account. Is there anyone who'd be willing to use their Uber account for the cause? I can get you the money, the restaurant website, the order, and the delivery address. Please contact me via my profile address if this is something you'd be willing to do. Thanks!
