Grrr....I don't want to wait until tomorrow to leave! WAAAAH!

I couldn't even sleep last night I was so excited. I think I'll probably just end up staying up most of tonight or getting up really really early.

Morning y'all (an hour and a half after I get to work). Ugh, last day at work before I head to BRC. I really don't think I'll be able to sit here all freakin day long.

The Two Things about Burning Man

Okay, so I just found this site and I think we should come up with some ideas for what "The Two Things" are about Burning Man. Here's the site to give you an idea of what " The Two Things " could be. The basic concept is that for every general subject (thing, place, people, job, etc.) there is reall...

It's odd, even though I never met him, I feel like I know him very well and that at some time, I did know him. Does that make any sense at all? I will also ...

Obviously you have to wash and dry the wound...but does the superglue sting bad? Is it sterile? From what I know, it does sting a little, but it is quite sterile.

Superglue is fantastic for sealing wounds. That new "Liquid Bandage" stuff is essentially superglue. Totally safe cause it doesn't really soak very far into the skin, but creates a total seal so nothing bad can get into the cut. Great stuff. Especially in a really dusty place. I should probably add ...

Packing material shouldn't cost you more than $5-$10. I know the Denver airport is very used to dealing with baggage that size and shape. ;) I'm not leaving until Tuesday so I don't wanna hear it. *pout* It finally dawned on my last night when I started packing where I was going. I am so excited!!!!

They will probably make you check it like they would skis and such. There's no way that will fit in the overhead bins.

It's called QR Stop Bleeding and they do have one designed for nosebleeds. A sample of it came in the first aid kit I just bought. Looks like it could be helpful out there.
