Best gift anyone has given me in a long time.

I've had a terrible few years, I guess I haven't shared much of it, except for a diary one about my experience with a payday advance / title loan nightmare... it's a lot of things, but financial problems have been the burning core that makes everything else worse.

I would have never been able to afford something like this for myself.

The holidays are nice when life is nice I guess (or even when life is manageable, tolerable), but when your life is a wreck it feels like holidays just put a spotlight on it and highlight all the things you're missing out on.

I don't celebrate holidays lately - I wait for them to be over with.

Well this "holidays", the period of time starting last week with the day our Liberal war is clearly losing its hippie ass to, and ending after tomorrow, for me this is the bright spot of it.

To whoever gifted this lifetime subscription to me, know that you made a person happy who hasn't had much to be happy about in a very long time. Thank you.

7:48 PM PT: Whoa. First time on the rec list. The gift that keeps on giving. Woohoo! In 2012 things are going to get better for me - this is a sign!

7:51 PM PT: Haha... that was quick. Off the rec list now... my 15 seconds of fame. I'll take it.

8:01 PM PT: Back on the rec list... woohoo again! 15 more seconds for me! I'd like to thank the little people... I guess I'll include the haiku I wrote that started it all, back when I was a lowly unlifetimesubscriptioned Kossack:

I'm too Goddamn broke

to hide Exxon and Rove ads.

Benefactor me.

haiku update... Just saw the email about the subscription and this is the message the anonymous benefactor sent:

A happy new year

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.
