The Boiler Room is taking over the Cotton Building again for our annual auction, in conjunction with Gallery Walk and the tree lighting ceremony! There will be live music! Silent and live auctions! Coffee! Cookies!! And much, much more!!! The Auction is a fantastic place to purchase holiday gifts, while supporting a good cause. We will have a wide variety of items, from soaps to high-end art, from massages to restaurant gift certificates. Something for everyone on your list!
Donations will be accepted through November 22nd. For information about how to donate items for the auction, or any other questions, please message the Boiler Room through our facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms are available behind the counter at the Boiler Room, for anyone who just wants to stop in and grab one. Grab a cup of coffee while you’re at it! Or one of the best $1 cookies in town!
Take a peek back through our photo albums for some of the projects in which the Boiler Room has participated over the past year, including UGN’s Day of Caring and Main Street Program’s Earth Day activities and more.
An amazing donor has offered to match EVERY PENNY brought in by the auction, and paypal donations made on December 7th (so that folks far away can participate). I think that is amazing, wonderful, ridiculous, awesome and above and beyond what I ever hoped would happen. It’s been a year of overwhelming support and love for The Boiler Room, and I can only hope that carries us forward into the next year.
The Boiler Room is really, really important. It helps so many people, in so many ways. Twenty years of giving, twenty years of love. If you’re not familiar with the organization, please go take a look.

It’s the Raptor Zombie Plague. Of course.
“A starship captain’s most solemn oath is that he will give his life, even his entire crew, rather than violate the Prime Directive.”
And some will sit proudly atop Christmas trees to boot.

hollywood has given us two, equally false, notions of marriage. either it’s the joining of two gorgeous young people “destined” to be together, or as a wheezing and cold institution inhabited by miserable and middle-aged wheezebags, usually meant to illustrate a counterpoint to the love the gorgeous young couple in the film will share once their destinies are realized, and they are able to finally be together against all odds. yawn. boring. wrong. …
it’s doing laundry. it’s paying bills. cleaning the kitty litter. marriage is a hundred thousand tiny tasks you share. it is peeling vegetables and changing lightbulbs and giving each other quick kisses and wishing for each other “a nice day.” it is coming home and smelling dinner cooking, and running out on a cold winter night for antacid because she has a headache and cannot sleep. sometimes marriage is being pissed off at each other for weeks at a time. and sometimes it’s walking into your children’s bedrooms and watching them sleep.

(I love everything about this quotation, but I am concerned that an antacid will not effectively treat Michael Ian Black’s wife’s headache. And then he is going to come home and be like, “I ventured out into the frigid night to get you this Pepcid AC,” and she will be like, “I have a headache, not heartburn,” and then he will have to go back to CVS and there will be a bit of mutual resentment even though everyone is trying to do right by everyone else. This is also marriage.)
Imagine a library filled with every book in the world, none of them have titles on the cover and the pages are blank, but when you open one you are instantly transported to the world within the book. You get to live the story as any character for as long as you like. And when you come out of the story, almost no time has past in the real world
