Exactly one week away- the Pink Ribbon Brigade marches on!

By Tig2 ·
I know that I haven't been active lately and I know that has to change.
And it will- after the 21st.

Exactly one week from this second, I will be getting all my stuff
together, getting a hot shower, making last minute phone calls and
making an emergency run for more ibuprofen... just in case. The
truck will be decorated (and washed first), clothing and such laid out
for the next morning, and hopefully, I will get some sleep.

I have only seven days to make up for missed training and do all the
stuff I haven't yet done to get ready for the boldest walk against
breast cancer. 60 miles may just hurt this year.

Anyone who wishes to make a donation may go to my website. You
can find it here: http://08.the3day.org/goto/tricia

To all of you- your constant support over the past months has been
amazing. I can't begin to tell you how much you have all touched me.
Your support after my Mom's death has been especially warming. I
have that thread printed for posterity- a true glimpse of a community
in action.

What kind of world do I want? A world where breast cancer is a thing
of the past. A world where men and women have choices about their
healthcare. A world that encourages living much more than it
encourages dying. I want a world where choices are made by
empowered individuals. I want MY world. I'm walking another 60
miles to get there.

Please change your avatar to a pink ribbon (if you haven't already) and
walk with me to the world YOU want. Together, we CAN make a
difference!

The place just wasn't the same without ol' Scumdog to kick.

Does your brain merit the stamp of approval now?

Scummy was hauled out

by w2ktechman In reply to The place just wasn't the ...

on a stretcher. Scummy sat there stealing hotel pens and made a super pen, a few short pens and a massive projectile launcher :0
By the end of day 2, everyone was wondering if Scummy went off the deep end or not.
Now he is just in a coma :0

So y'all stuck wit me till his return :0

Day 1 12 hours. Day 2 14 hours. Day 3 (whew, it got shortened) 4 hours -- cause nobody could handle any more. People were passing out left and right :0

Funny, over the event

by w2ktechman In reply to Scummy was hauled out

I went into some 2 hour sessions with 2 cups of coffee AND a can of caffeine, only to be out and sleepy before it was over...
But, I did find out that I am supposed to 'not let others abuse my time'. Since any interruption of TR is time abuse, I just gotta **** them all off all day from now on :^0

posting comments instead of editing the previous

to raise post count so that I may at least 'maintain' almost 200 posts this week...

This morning I actually had a coke and coffee, got there. First thing, Mt. Dew and coffee.
First meeting set finished and I realized that without serious change, I would drop dead asleep, so I repositioned my seat to be really, really close to the coffee urns.
the next speaker had to endure me getting up several times to refill...

And at lunch break we were told

by w2ktechman In reply to Scummy was hauled out

that we could go home (I think, that's what I heard at least). However having the brain tweaked like that, they coulda just said 'lunch time' :0 I don't really remember even hearing a voice now that I think of it. Maybe it was just my imagination...
Anyway, even with all of that caffeine, I got home and crashed for a few hours.

The week I had

by NickNielsen In reply to Scummy was hauled out

If I made 50 posts, I'll be surprised.

I'm going to be looking at 4 days of email tonight.
