#128 – Nice Try….

Someone tried to brute force password reset to take over this blog. It is NOT dormant. I’m just busy with other things going on from time to time.

In any case, today was a good time to do full backups of everything on the website, harden security in a few areas, and rotate my passwords. Thanks for reminding me, chummer.

Still here, still out there when I can, still dealing with the lovely Arizona heat in Metro Phoenix…

#112 – Semi-Monthly Update: FAQ Added, More Out And About Stuff…

I’ve been getting out, on my own, and with others, and there are a few more outings planned. I had a lot of fun this past Saturday, at the 4th Anniversary Social for the River City Gems up in Sacramento, CA. (Even though I was getting over a cold, and it was rather chilly in the evening, it was still a great day out.)

I’ve added a series of Frequently Asked Questions up here, as you’ll see up in the top menu bar. (If you’re not viewing this in the mobile-friendly version, which, of course, can be set to show the full non-mobile site on most smartphones. This site works in the webkit-based browsers on most smartphones.) – It’ll be the one source that I’ll refer back to from Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, or elsewhere.

Why do I do this. Well, because I can, and I do want people to know about me, or at least attempt to understand. (Especially my friends I have come out to.)

Wow, this was a long update! More to come, whenever I can pull myself away from Lord Of The Rings Online – Geez, that game is addicting!

#95 – Picnic In The Park, And Some Brave New Steps…

Catching up with the last few months, because this is my forum, and I have every right to “spike the ball,” using my home field advantage, of course! ^_-;

Saturday, May 21st was another adventure, as well as another small step for me getting out and about among the mainstream world, for that day was the River City Gems picnic, the second event of the month, at a park along the Sacramento River, by one of Sacramento’s many suburbs.

#69 – Happy Halloween! (Today Is Catch-up Day!)

It’s been a somewhat eventful month for me, and in between watching Game 4 of the World Series, and handing out treats to visiting kids, I’ll be getting some long-promised posts out of the way here.

I’ll space out the post releases so you don’t get too overwhelmed. I can’t promise anything right now, but I’ll strive for more consistent releases from now onward.

Oh, yeah… November is NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month! I definitely have a story in me. I’ll link to my LiveJournal, and put sections of my work-in-progress up here.

Enjoy the day, and keep checking back here!

#68 – New Photos! (New Text Coming Very Soon!)

…Not like I’d let the site fade away. I’m just waiting to make some time to hide myself away and catch up on the past three weeks’ worth of my life since I started attending events with the River City Gems group, up in Sacramento, CA.

Yes, I know, I need to catch up on blogging about my time at River City Sparkle at the beginning of the month, and then the Halloween party this past weekend. Next Gems event I’m hoping to make is the November social, happening on Saturday the 13th! Sorry, between hanging out on PINKEssence, and playing Lord Of The Rings Online and Dynasty Warriors Online, they’re taking up most of my waking hours. ^_^;

Anyway, some of the most recent pictures since the beginning of the month!

#52 – And You Thought I Forgot? (More Photos!)

Not that I forgot or anything, but they’re a bit more low-key and causal this time around. I’m showing off my new “workout” outfit, and relaxing on the deck in my backyard. (Though, I like my schoolgirl outfit – I think I’ve found this year’s Halloween “costume.” ^_^;)

More ideas being explored today, and of course, a return to writing what’s on my mind soon! The experiment continues!
