Allow me to introduce the fourth member of the Envenomed, Mad William Flint, who not only remembers CBGB in its heyday as I do, but who has done an admirable job of getting under your skin, as a true Venomite should.
After running EV as a solo blog for nearly four years, I’ve about exhausted my supply of uninformed, off-the-cuff opinions. So, in the spirit of freshening this place a bit, I’ve invited several bloggers to become contributing authors here at EV.
First up, please welcome Anwyn, a self-described sometime editor and all-the-time mother whose blog captured my interest a while back.
Schiebe’s writing is fresh and direct, and her depiction of the inner life of a SAHM is both revealing and conspiratorial. Her freshman novel captures the feelings and fears that plague all mothers and brings them to life on the page in a way that is cathartic for both her and her readers.
And now, for some fantastic news: Ms. Schiebe will be writing a guest blog entry here at Electric Venom in the very near future!
After an 18-hour marathon organization, packing and re-packing session, we’re primed for an early departure on The Road Trip From Hell. I’m hoping for a bright and early departure, but given how late we’re all up tonight, I doubt if we make it out of here before noon.
Luckily, I’ve already turned over the reins to Boy Toy and De Doc who’ll be keeping things hopping during my 3-week, 3000+ mile camping trip. Please be sure to thank both of them for me — it’s quite a favor they’re doing!
Meanwhile, I’m going to try to pop in a few times during the trip to update you on my travels and, if I’m lucky, to share photos with you, too. We’re going to be passing through some beautiful country during this trip and if I weren’t already so tired from getting ready to leave, well, I’d be eager to go!
For those of you wondering Where’s VK, I’ll be travelling the following route:
- (Tomorrow): South Dakota’s Big Bend State Recreation Area
- South Dakota’s West Bend State Recreation Area
- South Dakota’s Custer Park
- The Big Horn National Forest
- Billings, MT (not sure where yet)
- Theodore Roosevelt National Park
- North Dakota’s Fort Abraham Lincoln
- North Dakota’s Fort Ransom
- Minnesota’s Lake Norway
- July 7: home at last!
And for the curious: yep, we’re tent-camping throughout all of that until we reach Minnesota. Then, thanks to my in-laws, we’ll finally be sleeping on soft beds again. Given that, I’m sure you understand that I now have an appointment to keep with my pillow.
