I’ve been good.  Been getting out socially a little more, mostly dragged out by friends and family, it’s true but I’m going vs. staying in and obsessing.  So that’s good.  I feel better every day, my knees, me in general too.  Most of the time the changes are subtle, but every so often there’s kind of an “Ah Ha!” moment when something feels significantly easier to do.

I’ve been hanging out in Plurk and Age of Conan a lot, recharging my batteries for Second Life ™ and the ongoing fund raising benefiting the American Cancer Society (ACS) via the Relay For Life (RFL) campaign. The campaign is going well, and we’re in the home stretch toward the 24 hour Relay itself this July 19 – 20th. We’ve surpassed last year’s grand total already (over 118,000 U.S. dollars collected via direct donation and over 30 million Linden dollars gathered in-world)!

Team RadioRadio has done it’s part and has it’s next big event coming up at 5 pm (Pacific) on July 10, 2008, DJ Chet “Spanky” Neurocam will be spinning while racers drive in support of BOTH ACS and United Spinal Research (USR). Earlier this month, we participated in a 5 team, 3 station event, that doubled Team RadioRadio’s total and altogether raised just over $8,700 USD in 15 hours! Nothing like the power of cooperation and motivation to get things rolling!

At the end of the month I’ll have some tests done to see where we stand on the next big procedure, which will give me an indicator of what the rest of my year is gonna be like. I’ve been DJing 2 nights a week, Fridays 9 pm – midnight (Pacific) and Saturdays 5 – 8 pm (Pacific). Also I’m collaborating with an SL buddy Xugu Madison on building a website for the guild we’re both members of in Age of Conan. We built a wiki site for Tiny Empires last year and I’m looking forward to seeing what we come up with this time!
