Charity marathons for people who do not actually run

2011-10-10 14:18

So, I’ve signed up for one of those charity drive marathon things. The gimmick is, instead of running 26 miles, we’re playing video games for 24 hours.

Yeah, it’s silly. But it’s a fun kind of silly, and I am told that in general kids like it when they get medical care. … Well. More precisely, adults like it when they got medical care as kids. Kids do not always like it at the time.

Anyway, if you are sitting around thinking “gosh, I just wish I could find a charity to throw money at”, I sorta like this one, and it’s an excuse to play video games, which of course I desperately need. Without this kind of justification, it’s entirely possible that I’d barely play video games for 13-14 hours this Saturday.
