#Digiwrimo Day 6: How to Train Your Puppy

In March, my partnerĀ and I adopted a 9 week old black pug. Since then, every moment of our lives has been alternating between “OMG this dog is crazy annoying!” and “OMG this dog is so freakin’ adorable!”. So, we have been taking training classes.

#Digiwrimo Day 4-1: Ooops … Disney Geek-Out!

Whoops! I already missed a day. I’m bad at this thing. I clearly need to make this a calendar alert or something so I remember. I suppose that’s the point, right, so that I make it a habit to be writing daily, and it isn’t yet. So, I’m going to Disney World this weekend! I’m […]

#Digiwrimo Day 2: My Tribe is Nerd

Today I was asked if I have a Tribe. Not a Native American tribe, although I was an Indian Princess back in the day and my tribe then was Sioux. We used to go camping with our fathers and hunt for snipes. One time, my tribe walked across a frozen lake and left large pictures […]

#Digiwrimo Day 1: DC on TV

I’ve decided to participate in #digiwrimo, which is a digital writing version of nanowrimo. I have no interest in ever writing a novel, but I have a poor, neglected blog that could use some updates at times other than when I’m raising money for children (not that Extra Life isn’t a great cause!). So, here […]

Extra Life 2014: 14 Hours In! We can do it!

Whew – I think I’m getting a second wind. That’s good, because I’ll probably need a third, fourth, or fifth to get to the end of this. However, we have had some serious fun. We played Evolution by Northstar Games, which is an awesome Biology game that I played at PAX East last year.   […]

Extra Life 2014: Nerds in a Computer Lab

Do you know what happened when you put a bunch of nerds in a computer lab? They play lots of games! I think we have 15 nerds playing League of Legends or DOTA on separate computers and shouting at each other across the room. It’s pretty awesome. I’m hoping to get some of the crew […]
