BRING THE SANTASUIT, MOONRISE!!!

Yeah, all caps. Look up Eggs Bar, they'll be doing a Santarchy night on the playa, in honor of the first ever Burning Man theme camp. If there's ever been a reason to have a Santa Suit, that will be it.

berkowitz had a dog.

well, my cat has been been telling me to do some awful awful things lately.

Thorazine, ugh. I can drool right here in my own backyard.

Ordered the new brake and shifter cables for the Rhoadescar. For something that's only used a few times a year, that thing takes a beating.

Snap On makes an inexpensive tool that allows you to force lubricant or wd40 through cables like that - might be cheaper than replacing them.

Last year, I met some people coming back from Santa party. I am not sure if it was at Eggs bar. Do they have annual santa party?

Wow tattoogoddess, your food prep looks great!

Head meds...those of us on them probably need to keep on them even though schedules are upsidedown on Playa.

Yesterday, bought 36 feet of LED tube lights for camp.

Built a Monkey hut today and set up my tent to prepare for a lot more dust than last year. But I need to make the hut taller so it doesn't rub on the tent and keep me up in winds.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Sewing, sewing, sewing...oh and SEWING! Almost done with costume #4 of 10. Stupidly added another sewing project to my list, we'll see if I can squeeze it in.

Got hair chopped off for Playa heat...now need to re-purple.

Attempted to block all vents in my dust goggles with wood glue. Hope that stands up to the playa.

Finished sewing the edges on my cricket battle armor so it won't be MOOPy.

today was my big inventory check/planning day for camp kitchen
I stocked up on some 5 Hour Energy for personal use
made my (hopefully!) last costume-related purchase

Tomorrow I'm banishing myself to the basement & shackling myself to the sewing machine to finish costume projects.

Not that I'm aware of, no. This is something special for Fertility 2.0, my understanding is it involves some of the folks from the original first theme camp/cacaphony society people (who were also responsible for starting the whole santarchy/santacon thing in defaultia).

This thread is both inspiring and makes me feel like a slacker! Finally some accomplishments. Yesterday we put together the hexagon gazebo that will house the market and it looks good. Still working on how to anchor it. This morning I raised the tent trailer so it can air out and get loaded up. I also have demooped most of the inventory for the market! Yay we're going to the Playa!

We picked up juice and stuff from Costco and packed the food boxes. Only need a few items from the commissary and the chilled food. We're over-prepared on food, as usual. No steaks though. Never did like taking raw meat to the playa. Larry is outside fussing with something or other.

Genius came up yesterday and got half the HFWA t-shirts and gift bags done. Limited quantities.

Art is going along well.
