If my first experience with GishWhes (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) was Die Hard, and last year was Die Harder, then that would make this installation Die Hard With A Vengeance, right? Not a fantastic metaphor, but still somehow fitting, since this was definitely a scavenger hunt that my team, TeamContinue reading “GiShWhEs 2015 – With A Vengeance”

GISHWHES Networking: Crazy Beautiful Extended Family!
I recently posted about my experience with GISHWHES scavenger hunts in both 2013 and 2014, and I know I’ve already talked about the brilliantly fun community of GISHWHES in the past, but I don’t think you all truly understand the ridiculously awesome group of people involved in this annual undertaking.

GISHWHES 2014: Death To Normalcy
The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen via Spicing up my summer for the second consecutive year (reppin’ the 2013 GISHWHES pride), I survived another charitably insane week of scavenging mayhem this past August.

You should probably testContinue reading “Shangri-La and Sangria!”
AD/HD Scatterthoughts of Summer!
