I hate the word "gifted'.



Gift. It's a noun, people.
You give a gift. You don't gift someone.
You received a gift. You weren't gifted anything.

Gifted can be an adjective, in fact, it can be an over-used adjective when it comes to describing children.

It sounds so freaking coy.

What? You gifted her herpes? Isn't that kind of you.

Creative ways to help with the Bushfire Appeal

The project MsFoil has going has been on my mind... so I've been browsing Teh Interwebs to find the sort of thing we are handy at doing. Here's what I've found so far, and if you find something too, let me know.

I confess, I'm like MsFoil though, if it's at all possible, I'd love to know if it's possible to donate to individuals.

Cross-posted on LJ but you have to be a friend to see it, ha.
