Blue Gal (of Blue Gal and Crooks and Liars) is getting married this Friday to the very funny Driftglass.

Here’s the thing: They’re broke. Really, really broke. (They’re so broke, they can’t even afford to live in the same state because of Drifty’s job.) Blue Gal’s church is kicking in with an all-expenses paid night at a B&B for the newlyweds, which is wonderful. (They were thinking a night at Pizza Hut with BG’s kids, so yay.)

But I just wondered how many more Blue Gal fans there are out there, and how many people might want to go hit the tip jar on her page to give this lovely couple a little extra money as a wedding present.

She’s one of the nicest, smartest, funniest people — and so’s Drifty. If you want to send a gift to the happy couple, click here.
