My friend Jay’s house just burned down

May 24th, 2004 · Comments Off on My friend Jay’s house just burned down

Just read about this over on Scripting, thanks Dave–

Jay McCarthy–the generous, funny, energetic blogger of MakeOutCity–has a first-person account of watching his house burn down:

I was a bit panicked and shaken but I grabbed
my backpack and threw my computers in it and put on some pants. I
should have probably put on the pants with my wallet in them, but for
some reason I didn’t. And I should have probably got a jacket as well
seeing as it is so cold now…

One of my neighbors was very kind and gave me his jacket and we talked
about his son and where he is going to school. I haven’t talked to this
man probably since a Halloween in grade school or at some baseball game
with his son, whom I never really hung out with much…

Our friend Lisa Williams has started a PayPal account to help cover Jay’s family’s expenses, e.g. take-out pizza. A very worthwhile cause, in my opinion.
