Re: Question for the women only!

Yes, sorry. The Mirena is the IUD du jour. It has the hormones and works wonderfully to all but stop the flow. Oh, and stop the flow of inconvenient microhumans too. Of all options, it's fool-proof and very few side effects. It's taken a long time to shake the stigma of the dalkon shield. A real me...

Re: Theme camp assigned tickets transferable?

I'm kind of surprised that the org didn't cancel STEP registrations for those who received directed distribution tickets. I was shocked I still got my STEP tickets, which worked out since I'd originally put in for two tickets and only got one through my camp. Since the STEP tickets are in my name, ...

Re: Calgary AB Canada to Burning Man, a bit late?

I just saw a round trip flight on expedia from Calgary to Reno and back for $570 (8/26 -9/4), that's a screamin deal. Probably not much more than gas. If I were up there, I'd do it. The internets are your friend! :roll: . I'd personally rather do a 6 hour flight than two days of drivin.

Where things would likely feel like it was coming in waves is because of the 72 hour time limit. If a person gets an email but does nothing with it (either buys it or forfeits it), ...
