Fuck You, Says The Universe

For the second time in as many weeks, my (parked, unoccupied) car was hit by a speeding automobile. It's almost funny, except for the fact that my car has $4,000 worth of damage -- two-thirds of its value -- at the same time that I find out have have 1/2 of my job.

This afternoon, a diamond catalog arrived in the mail. Fuck you, too.

Tell the universe to go have buttsecks with itself. (Yes, I saw the ABC article.)

Megan, here's an idea.

You're pretty much the thing that's kept Jezebel awesome for the last umpteen months. I read all your posts and only a handful of the others, and I know I'm not the only one who feels that way.

The sheer outrage at the cancellation of Crappy Hour was impressive.

If you were to add some sort of "make a contribution" link to this website, and then post the occasional CH-inspired piece as well as other political stuff, I would happily contribute. (In fact, I'd contribute even if you didn't post those things here, because I'm grateful for all the entertainment and edification you've provided - and I bet there are lots of other former Jezzies who feel the same way.)

In case you're uncomfortable with the idea, let me point out that it's not charity or anything like that - you've been providing us with a service (good writing) and I personally would be totally fine with paying for said service. I know that technically Nick Denton is supposed to be doing that, but we know how that works.

So please consider this - and at the very least, please put a link to your wishlist on Amazon or something, so I can buy you a gift to say thank you, damnit.

1) Trying to find the up-side here... maybe the universe hates your car, and not you. Being the universe and all, it's not concerned with "collateral damage."

2) Seconded on the wish list - does amazon let you order booze on-line yet?
