Wait For It.... The World Turned Upside Down!
July 24, 2016

Hey Folks, In case you didn't see the Facebook Post - the fundraising for Pip's 30th was a total success, and then some!! Thanks to all of your See More

THE STORY:

We all love Pip. She's the greatest friend out there to pretty much all of us. Damn fine sibling too. How many times has she put herself second to step in when one of us needed her? (hint: the answer rhymes with 'a shminsane shmamount'). Heart of gold. Mind like a steel-trap. Liver like a... steel-trap. You may be aware that she's a musically-inclined namby-pamby type (not meant in an old-school, dumb way, more in a modern, millennial, "I'm building my own float for Pride next year in which I will be sporting a sequin g-string" kinda way). For her 30th, we're sending her to see HAMILTON in NYC. A work of total genius that defies it's genre. I can attest to it's genius because I was lucky enough to see it. I too, am a namby-pamby type, though not in Pip's league of Pambiness. I've since been singing the damn thing for 2 months with no end in sight. It's a perfect, groundbreaking piece of art and she may not come out of it alive, having spontaneously combusted at it's awe-inspiring magic. Ah well, it'll be a great way to go. You guys already know this stuff. You have all already indicated you would pledge. This is where you do it. And thank you btw! Here's a thought though - whatever you pledged, why not chip in an extra 10%?! ; ) The tickets are nuts and I want to get her in the stalls section if I can. In the event of a surplus, the excess will contribute to flights. (Equally, if cash is tight, every little bit will help and we thank you for your contribution no matter what). Thanks for all getting amongst it. If you know of someone who knows Pip and also might wanna chip in, please pass this along. But remember it's a secret. Let your heart decide people. And go with God. What's your name man? Phillipa-Kate-Ashton... Ugh. Such a bad Dad-joke. It's a line from the freakn musical okay? Don't judge me. Just cough up the dough. Hope you're all doing well. Paul.
