In recent Harvard graduates Greg Atwan and Evan Lushing's The Facebook Book, a chronicle of "the Facebook Generation" which sold last week to Abrams for around $50K, there should be an entire chapter about Harvard couple Daniel Hass and his lucky girlfriend Aleksandra Kuczmarska. Except there shouldn't be, because that book should not exist. Anyway, Daniel, like Modern Bride of the Year Heather Warnken before him, thinks the Internet should pay for his romantic fantasies.
See, Daniel and Aleksandra are celebrating a year together—a full year, people!—and they'd like to go to a hotel room for a weekend. A change of scenery is a great way to put the spice back in a relationship when you've been together that long! Problem is—well, let's let Daniel explain in his description of the Facebook group "Help Fund The Daliversary."
Unfortunately, given the price of hotels in Boston (or near any other bastion of civilization), renting a room for even a couple of nights is financially unfeasible. That's where you come in. We need lovely, generous, kind people like all of you facebookers to lend a hand to support our relationship. We're not asking for a big donation: just to make it manageable for us to have a nice weekend to ourselves to celebrate a year of happiness together.You know, I was just about to write a check to the ACLU so they can try to help sway the important votes coming up in Congress about those weird laws that allow our government to spy on us more and more? But I think I'll send Daniel and Alex the money instead. I mean, if a weekend in a hotel is "financially unfeasible" for them, think of what else might be! They probably can only afford a nice dinner date once a week or something!
