Someone anonymously donated money to IC to get me a star. How sweet is that? Neither I, nor Admin, have any idea who it was. It was donated in cash by post. Apparently someone else also asked if they could donate their star to me.  I know it's *just* a star, but the fact that someone spent their money to give me one is really lovely.

I feel all squishy and warm inside :)

Nice gesture but I don't understand? Don't understand the fuss and importance people are placing on having or not having a star???? But in truth isn't the purpose of a star to show you have donated to support IC.... and you haven't???

I wanted one for completely girly reasons- I like stars and shiny stuff. I never imagined or expected that someone would buy me one. But it's very sweet that someone did. Someone else also memod Admin offering to donate their star to me. So while the star itself might be meaningless to some people, the fact that amongst all the bitchery and griping so rife on IC someone was sweet enough to do that is very heartwarming to me. It's like the concept of "pass it on". And even though I didn't personally donate, IC has still benefited from this persons donation so it's win win.

Absolutely and I'm very happy to choose to support IC when I know others don't want to do that for whatever reason they have. That's my "pass it on" view, I don't mind covering costs on other people's behalf, and presumably everyone who donates feel sthat way, but then doesn't that simply mean everyone should get a star? Still not getting the big deal about stars but it makes for very amusing reading.
