OK, before we get to the bit in the title, lets do the begging bit!
So fine, I have decided (in a moment of craziness) to actually launch a fund raising campaign, to at least partly (and hopefully more) pay for the costs of formally changing my name to Miss Stephanie Harlean Carpenter. Has a nice ring to it, doesnt it? Works all ways around, as those who know me as Steph can still call me that, but I can also legitimately use the name Harlean, as and when I want to. Lets face it, how many people use their middle name anyway? 😉
No, this campaign doesnt involve donating large sums of money, at a quick costing (allowing for fees, and things), £120 should be enough, though if it goes slightly over, it would be good. Fine, I know it wont, but no harm in hoping. Indeed, anything beyond what one wonderful friend has already donated would be quite something!
Fine, the link https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/e10ypc/ab/c2hJdb Even a couple of pounds will help, so please be kind, though more would be wonderful. But given that most reading this only know me through the blog, ah well…
Right, begging over, well in terms of giving to me at least.
Tomorrow night, I’m off to a fashion show. Its for a charitable cause in Leeds to sort of launch the studio for the people who I had my 2 photo shoot sessions with. Why sort of? Because its to launch the new studio, even if it has been operational for a while, this is the formal launch. No, I’m not modelling, just part of the audience, but it should be fun. The link, even though I know most readers of this arent local to me, is https://www.facebook.com/events/1608781949397731/ (apologies if you dont have Facebook, but its the only link I can find). Please check tickets remain before just turning up, just saying…
Yes, I will be there, using my old name, though if anyone calls me Harlean, I probably wont blink!
Lastly, the video. This is a Kraftwerk song, but this is definitely not their version! It is in German, but I’m sure you can cope, I prefer it that way anyway.
