I'm not cranky anymore but I am sleepy. I have a big thank you for someone. Pretty shocking as I turned my computer off last night to see an email that said I had been given a lifetime gift subscription from an anonymous benefactor who wished me Merry Christmas. My momma doesn't even give me a $100 gift for Christmas! All I can humbly say is thank you and I will pass the generosity on someway as I truly believe that what goes around comes around. Anyway, at my age I got up to go to the bathroom at 3 a.m. I always fall right back to sleep but it was different this morning as I kept tossing and turning wondering who did this incredible nice deed.

I only wrote the previous comment in Cranky Users because I was cranky about all the 99% here who would have trouble meeting the $100 right at Christmas. I thought it was inconsiderate to do this right at this particular time of the year. Personally, I literally just had a new roof put over my head because of all the ice dam damage from the previous winter. Twice within 90 days I have had to throw away all my food because of losing power during Hurricane Irene and Storm Alfred. My "three times a year tick spraying contract because I've had lyme disease" is due. Etc Etc. Anyway I won't bore you with any more details but as someone who would have scrapped up the money for the subscription someway, I can only imagine that a lot of people here would also have a hard time.

Thank you wonderful friend. I'll try to make you proud of me with my nice deed in turn. During my important 9:00 a.m. meeting this morning at a municipality that I have to run with my boss in attendance, I'll try to explain that I'm a little foggy because someone gave me a DK gift subscription and I couldn't sleep. I'm sure they'll all understand! :-)

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.
