This Week With the GeekMoms

Brigid shares some new mini paintings on her Tumblr.

Ruth just returned from a great weekend at Southeast LinuxFest and will be continuing the geekfest this weekend with Maker Faire: NC, where you can find her in the booth. And to bring it full geek circle, Monday she’ll be hopping a plane to Portland, OR for Open Source Bridge. If only she could time between conferences to work on her Dragon*Con costume… anybody got a suggestion?

Jenny heads out on Monday with her family for a 40 day trip around the country. Follow their attempts at fun, education, and shenanigans on her trip blog.

It was a fun weekend for Judy Berna, as she camped in the White Mountains of NH with her wonderful in-laws, and hiked to Arethusa Falls, the tallest waterfall in New Hampshire. It was a tough hike, up some pretty rugged terrain, but her metal foot held up well. Now she’s back home, running back and forth to school functions as her kids wrap up their last two weeks of school and her son prepares to graduate.

Chaos Mandy is going to be doing some belated spring cleaning this weekend. She is also going to have a date afternoon with her hubby to see “The Green Lantern” on Sunday.

Cathe is going to be brave and try to start a Pokémon league in Vancouver with another mom. She is hoping to hold it at the new Vancouver game store, Dice Age. However, this weekend is all about dad. The weekend will include Dungeons and Dragons and possibly some Warhammer painting.

Sarah is glad that the chickens have finally moved outside, now the house can be sealed off and all the dust sucked out of it! She looks forward to turning 30 gracefully this weekend with good friends, a lot of shrimp and a showing of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

This last week, Jules had a fabulous time interviewing Bad Astronomer, Phil Plait. She also began pre-orders for the audiobook version of her book From The Mundane To The Insane: A Wonderful Journey Without A Destination. She is now counting the days until school ends on June 29, so that she can get more much needed rest to help her overcome her latest increase in lupus activity.

Laura finally spent some time relaxing on the front porch reading a stack of good books. That will come to an end soon since it’s time to bale hay.

Patricia embarked yesterday on a 14 day mini-tour of the Northeast, with stops in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Vermont. The Wanderlust Yoga Festival is on the docket! Yesterday she might have added New Hampshire to the list. As of this writing, her husband just stuffed 5 days worth of camping equipment into the car-top carrier, which will be used for days 9-12 of the trip.

Rebecca Angel is excited about her two new upcoming albums. Both are live recordings, one from each band. The first cd release party for The Subs will be this Sunday. The Subs enjoys costuming ourselves for each gig and have decided on a Hawaiian theme. Now to find a shirt…
