Finish Work

I crossed the finish line, but the race has just begun! Better yet – my youngest crossed with me, completing the final 200 words of her story only about twelve hours after I hit the 50K mark. While her word…

NaNo in the Raw

I hate being naked in public. I’ve mentioned in other blog posts how I obsessively reread and edit my entries before posting them, so uploading something without changing anything is making me a bit crazy. Okay, crazier. *grin* But as…

The Little Things

I had a bagel for breakfast. I know that doesn’t seem like a big deal, but we’ve been without a means of toasting since the end of July, when we sent our toaster oven/rotisserie to a new family via Goodwill.…

Winter Wonderland

What a winter preview! I’m trying to hold on to the fact that having 18 inches of snow and 20 degree temperatures in October is a great way to show us what still needs to be done with the camper…

State of Confusion

I’m having an identity crisis of sorts. While the name of this little corner of cyberspace is “Confessions of an Internet G33k,” lately it’s feels more appropriate to call it, “Adventures in Camping.” I’m happy to have been inspired to…

Update – 20 things to do by 2010

So much for thawing out… *grin* While the deadline for my “20 things to do by 2010” has long passed, I still feel the need to do a brief update, especially since it stayed in my blog feed as the…

20 things to do by 2010

I’ll explain more about this later, but for the moment, here is my list of 20 things to do by 2010 – 1. Visit America’s Stonehenge. 2. Lose 20 pounds. 3. Finish NaNoWriMo for the third time in November 2009.…

Please leave your message after the beep…

Coming soon to this space – all the old entries of “Confessions of an Internet G33k” from my former blog on the Portsmouth Herald website.  Then, who knows – maybe I’ll be inspired to write some new ones… in my…
