Greetings from Cape Cod, MA!
So it looks like I’ll be signing a 3-month lease (beginning December 1st) on an apartment near Dupont Circle in Washington DC within these next few days – my first semi-permanent home in a year!? Until then however, I figured it’d be a good idea to throw in a few quick side trips to keep me out of trouble; two days ago I flew up to Cape Cod to visit my family and gather winter clothes, my guitar, golf clubs, and my Wii – new Zelda comes out in a few weeks!? Tomorrow, I’ll be renting a car and driving back down to DC with ALL of my possessions (the 3 things mentioned above and one extra suitcase with more clothes).
I’ll be spending the next week in DC, starting with a great concert this Saturday night (Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers – one of my favorite bands and the nicest guys you’ll ever meet), followed by a quick trip to Puerto Rico on the 13th and a golf outing in Atlanta, before returning to DC for a few days…and then possibly departing on yet another international adventure for 7-10 days before renting my place in DC.
Boy for somebody that’s “slowing down on travel” I sure do suck at it!
Anyhoo, let’s get the point of today’s article:
Live chat is a go!
That’s right folks, we just introduced decades-old technology on the Nerd Fitness message boards – live chat software!?
When you’re on the message boards, look at the very very bottom of your screen to join chat rooms or instant message with other rebels that are online at the time.
I know, this new technology is AMAZING! Cue the Prince!
We’ve already had some fun conversations on there to test things out (which included some comical “which words get filtered” phrases), but we’re only just getting started.? I’m always looking for new and better ways for Nerd Fitness rebels to connect with each other, and immediate interaction is just one more way for us to support each other, ask questions, vent, offer up tough love, and more.
I was hoping you’d join me for an official Chat party on the boards!? Think AOL circa late 90’s, minus the pedophiles.
With 3,200 members now (and over 75,000 posts!), I honestly have no idea how many people will show up, but come on by and say hello!
This Sunday night, Nov. 6th, from 7PM-9PM Eastern I’ll be hanging out in the NF chat room on the NF message boards – answering questions about fitness, diet, travel, and leveling up your life.? Honestly, nothing makes me happier than helping people in any way possible; this is just one more opportunity for us to help each other in a different way.
If you can’t make it to this one, don’t worry!? I plan on doing a lot more of these, along with exploring even more ways to bring this world-wide (and rapidly expanding) community closer together.
Have a kick-ass weekend, come say hi if you happen to be going to the Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers show in DC on Saturday, and see you Sunday night!
PS – Nerd Fitness hoodies are shipping all over the world, and judging by the tweets and twitpics, many rebels already have them!? If you’re one of the many that bought one, I’d love for you to send me a picture of you wearing yours doing something epic!? Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photo so I can get them up on Facebook and the site!? And if you don’t have one yet, why not?? They’re awesome, super comfortable, and will keep you warm during these winter months!
PPS – We’re almost caught up on picking all previous contest winners and 6-week challenge winners – expect an announcement very soon.? Sorry for the delay on that, I’m only now getting my life back in order and working on catching up with Nerd Fitness too.? Thanks for your patience!
