Yep. These are the things that we discuss at Nanowrimo write-ins.

I’ve been a busy Brandice lately, so here on the highlights from recent weeks. – Nanowrimo planning is well under way, and today’s kickoff party in the Canton region (of which, I am the Municipal Liaison for the 8th year in a row) is going to ROCK. I’m really excited about my 9th Nanowrimo, hopefully [...]
We did it! Cumulative chip time of 5 hours, 5 minutes, and 59 seconds, and we all completed our portions faster than we thought we would! It was pretty awesome to not only finish, but to surpass our own expectation. I was really starting to freak out last week… I’d been sick with a cold [...]
Great times were had this weekend at a wedding in Youngstown. The drink below, among other drinks, contributed to the great times… Always fun to see college friends! I’m just starting to get over being sick for the past week and I’ve got to get re-hydrated, back to full health and ready for the Akron [...]
Woo hoo! Jim and I had a great time in Cleveland on Saturday night for our friend Mike’s 30th birthday. Click on our purdy faces for a few more pics: We went to Luigi’s afterward for pizza (which drunk Brandice did not track properly at all… drinks = too much pizza and no mathematical skillz), [...]
So, today was… a day. I started off by twisting my hair up into the usual “I don’t want to fully blowdry my hair because it’s already hot and I’m barely motivated to go to work” bun, only to realize 15 minutes into running around the hospital that I had a huge chunk of hair [...]
Woo hoo!! Got lots o’ planting done this past weekend with my friend Tim. :) First we planted the Eastern Redbud that my mother gave me for my birthday: We also planted this Mountain Fire Pieris that I picked up the other day on a whim: And there’s the Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick tree, which [...]
Adorable Amy helped me make VitaTops! If you are a Weight Watcher point counter or a healthy eater in general, these are SWEET. So tasty and so much less expensive to eat when you buy the mix and make it yourself. Check out my accidental smiley face! And now we’ve got a second batch in [...]
I apparently don’t sleep in anymore. I’ve been up for two hours, let the dogs out already and I think I like it. :) There’s a quiet rain pattering against the sidewalk outside, Makai is sleeping in big rumbling snores behind me, and the only thing I have to do today is a load or [...]
The housewarming pics are finally up and edited! It was a really great time, everyone loved the house and the dogs, and the after party was a blast. :) Here are some of my favorite shots: Laura teaches Ohio people how to dance like someone from NYC: My grown sibs! Adorable Amy (who I’m so [...]
HOLY CRAP, it’s cold. I’m sitting at my desk (which is no longer under piles and piles of boxes and various non-unpacked rubble) waiting for Laura to call me to pick her up at the airport, because this weekend is… OUR HOUSEWARMING! I am completely psyched, and our house is in really good shape, considering [...]
Things accomplished during this very, VERY relaxing three day weekend: 1. I read all Friday morning while Jim slept until an obscenely late hour, and finally finished Ender in Exile. 2. Jim and I met up with Matt and we went downtown for what was my very first ever First Friday, Canton’s monthly festival in [...]
Friday, Jim and I went to the Indians game with my co-worker Kevin and his wife and son. The Indians completely bombed and my man Travis Hafner (nom nom *smooch*) was not really on his game, but it was a good time and it was fireworks night, so the second video below is of the [...]
I was driving to meet my mom on Sunday and decided to make a quick update on what’s been going on, which includes hair, Norm MacDonald show, seeing college friends, some Linux talk, seeing my mom, and an overall relaxing weekend.
Still rummaging around in my old, unedited video footage and rooted up some footage from the graduation party I went to right after finishing my Masters last June (2008). We played quite a bit of flip cup at that party. ;)
…about the day before the Vegas wedding. :) 1. My second hairdresser was awesome, which was lucky because the one the day before had been a total bust. I wore my tentative wedding hair to the bachelorette lunch. Lunch was friggin’ awesome (Mexican cuisine of the tastiest variety): 2. Dianah, Susan and I went to [...]
Here’s the video of my commencement ceremony, with some pictures thrown in and a little clip when I thought I was taking a picture at the bar (I do that constantly, think I’m taking a picture and I’m filming). I would say that this is the last of the graduation/commencement merriment, but I’m going to [...]
So, yesterday, I officially graduated in a ceremony in Cleveland that was, to say the least, a giant disorganzied cluster frick (half of the graduates had their hoods put on inside out, miscalculation of seating resulted in the faculty and half of the audience having to stand through the entire ceremony, processional music glitches, and [...]
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and a lot of writing-then-deleting in regards to a topic that I’ve wanted to blog about for a while now. For a month or so, I’ve avoided writing about it, because it wasn’t an objective subject and it was too tied to specific people or situations, but I [...]
(Sorry my day 4 entry for Videoblogging Week 2008 is late… can haz unbroken interwebz?) I was over at Joe & Amy’s for conversation night and we had some tea (HUGE surprise) and some strange reddish cake (I am new to red velvet… current stance: not a fan).
Jim thinks it’s funny that this commercial has always made me very sad for cavemen everywhere. Lol… On my way home from my last day at the clinic I worked at in Akron, and I’ve just eaten a lot of bad food and feel like poo. CrabToday FTW!
