It's my 100th post!

So yes, last night I was posting from Nigel's Smartphone-type-thing from a Dunkin Donuts in Delaware, because yesterday was chock full o' action.

Saturday started out with meeting a friend about 5 miles away, taking him out to lunch, and then going to see a robotics competition at a local high school. Yes, this blog is called DORKabetic for a reason, but honestly, I get a little lost listening to my husband and his buddy talking engineering. However, watching robots competing in sports is quite entertaining. I suggest you try it sometime.

After all of that, we came home, chilled out, changed clothes and had to leave for Delaware. Matt and I had a poetry feature at a reading called 2nd Saturday Poets, in Wilmington, that happens...duh...on the 2nd Saturday of every month. It was well-attended, and we heard lots of great work from other Delaware poets. It was a completely different vibe from our usual visits to slam venues, but it was a lot of fun. We sold a bunch of our books and made some money for the feature itself.

We then spent a portion of our feature money at a dinner with some of our friends. It was a long, leisurely dinner, so after that, we decided to call up our friend Rich to see if he was busy. We snagged him for coffee at about 10:30pm. After coffee, we decided to drag him back to PA with us. We stayed up late playing video games.

When we all got up today, we hung around some more, then went out for a tasty Mexican lunch. Post-lunch, we returned home and vegged out. Now we're heading over to a different friend's for snacks and board games. Crazy, crazy, crazy weekend! It's great.

I am hoping I am not catching whatever virus Matt was fighting at the end of the week. I think I may be. Ugh ugh ugh. Time to pop some vitamins and hit the town. Catch you all tomorrow!

  1. If you need an idea for a post for NaBloPoMo, could you indulge us readers in some of your poetry? I'm very curious and haven't read any of your work, though you talk about it quite a bit.

    It sounds like you had the kind of weekend I would love, well, minus the robot competition, maybe, but I'm open to trying new things.
