Round One of the Blogosphere Project: AWChain

So, Towerkel at AbsoluteWrite has started the first round of Blogosphere Project: AWChain, and I’m the second in line after Towerkel’s post.

Let’s see, what’s new since my last post? Oh, that’s right–AbsoluteWrite.com is back up, and so are the forums. Hooray!!!

And just when the forums are back up, and I’m getting back into the swing of things on the forums, I have to go out of town for a week. Our choir is going on a tour throughout several states. I’ve been stressed about it for a while, factoring in some personal details and health issues, but now I’m actually kind of looking forward to it! And even if I’m out-of-it now and then throughout the trip, once we get on stage and start singing things turn around, and I can’t help but get excited! Especially since we’re going to Chicago first. Maybe we can get to see Wicked (the musical (again!). (Reminder: I must record the Tony Awards!)

Thinking of Chicago reminds me of six summers ago when I spent a two weeks in Boston. There’s just something about older, bigger cities. So much history. Chicago is where Shoeless Joe Jackson played, where the Black Sox scandal took place. New York City, Boston, Chicago. Love the old cities.

And maybe I can get some Dunkin Donuts while we’re there. They’re hard to find in Houston. It seems to be either Southern Maid donuts or nothing. Oh, and Shipley’s Donuts, which are actually good. Mmm, donuts. Definitely need to get some of those.

You know what’s kind of addicting? Amazon.com. They have all these new features. (I spent more time than I should have updating mine!) You can build your own profile, share multiple wishlists, even have recommended lists! The author plogs (yes, plogs, not blogs) are fun, too! Check out Jenna’s and Ray’s!

Sorry this post is so short and random, but I’m still packing and preparing. The one not-so-fun thing about this trip? No internet access. Blah. Oh well. It’ll be fun. šŸ™‚

Okay Kira, you’re next!

    Have a great trip!

    If you like pizza, and you really like cheese.. be sure to get a Chicago Stuffed pizza while you’re there.

    They’re to die for.

    Really.

    Well, don’t really die for it.

  3. Ok, this is gonna be tough šŸ˜‰

  4. Kappa no He says:

    What was that quote my son always throws at me…a Homer Simpson original…”Donuts, what can’t they do?”

  5. KellyC says:

    Great job on your links – it makes it so much easier to follow the chain! I think we should all add the “you’re next” line at the bottom.

  6. Peggy says:

    One thing (of many) that makes California different from the rest of the country is the relative lack of donut shops. You can find them, but they are few and far between. It was a big deal when Krispy Kreme opened a local branch – the donut deprived were in heaven.

    (and no internet access – the horror! ave a great trip!)

  7. Laurie says:

    I miss doughnuts! Waaaaah! Doughnuts do not exist in this country! Waaaah! šŸ™

    Have a good trip. šŸ™‚

  8. -Kelly M. says:

    I would love to see “Wicked”! The novel has been on my shelf for months. I really must crack it open…

  9. Firiel says:

    Not even a Krispy Kreme? How awful!

    Hope you have lots of fun on your trip!

  10. Matt D. says:

    I keep thinking about doing one of those Amazon plog things, but I keep not doing it. I’m kinda torn between it being cool and it being incredibly cheesy.

  11. Chicago is a great city. Ran the Chicago marathon last year which was fun. I live near Boston. I know what you mean about the older cities. I lived in Europe and love how Boston (sometimes) reminds me of being there. Boston can be messy (traffic, inept road construction) but it has a lot to offer.

    Have fun and sing your little heart out. šŸ™‚ And enjoy the donuts if you find them.
