I need a vacation! Instead, I'm going to the cabin w/the family. LOL

My parents' "cabin" is a house on the lake w/2 bedrooms & bath upstairs, 1 bedroom, bath, living room, dining room & kitchen downstairs, a slightly finished basement with more than enough room for a few air mattresses, and a deck. Of course, even though it sounds big, the annual Kids Weekend puts 17 people into that cabin.

We won't have air conditioning, or internets. We also probably won't have cell reception.

I'm planning on getting a lot of writing done. I still have some space shuttle stuff to write, the rest of the Florida trip, pretty much all of Phoenix ComiCon, w00tstock, CONvergence, and, of course, the newest Antarctica contest. A bunch of those will also be getting posted over at the Frozen Sharon site.

I really haven't done much pimping for votes on this contest yet because I just haven't had the energy. With minimal mentions I'm in 39th place. This time you only have to make the top 5, and then the judges choose from them. I'm 362 votes from being in the top five. I'm going to get some blog posts ready this weekend and also get emails ready to send out. This time for the contest I'm going to try to get people who tweet & blog about it for me to all try to do it in the same few days. Maybe more people will click to vote if they see more than one person pimping it.



*edit*
Well, hell. I totally forgot to post this before heading to the cabin yesterday. But, the whole "we won't have internets" thing? Not so much. Dad got high speed up here and a wireless modem. So, now I post.

Yay Google!

I wasn't planning on using the internets even though we have it this year, but I decided to actually download & look at the manual for the Hasselblad camera I have for the weekend. :)
It's kind of fun shooting w/film again. And maybe I'll even know how to work the camera before the weekend is over!
