Yep. Renaissance vocal music (and medieval polyphony) and pibroch.

So true. Yes.

TPBM has absolutely everything packed and ready to go, with zero current stress level.

Oh, fuck you. I am so far behind on the art I don't know how I will pull it of. Fingerpaintings?

TPBM is enjoying the frenzy.

Hell yeah! I even throw in a dinner party for our interns next week when I am in full prep mode for the burn. There is plenty of down time during the dark months.

TPBM has more than one list
The next morning you will wake up pretty much your old self except that a very unusual 16 hours will have been added to your store of life experience.

I don't even have on list. I have a pile of thoughts in my head that i hope will come together when necessary.

Not the first year. Ever since that one, I have forgot something but never my ticket.

TPBM plans to camp out on the way to BM this year.

Agreed, Planning leads to panicking, if there's no plan you cant be worried about not completing said plans.

Honestly don't know - only thing I've read he's been involved with is Good Omens, and that was a collab with Terry Pratchet. I liked the movies for Stardust & Coraline, but never read the books.



tpbm hates the kind of people who don't bother reading the books the movies they like are based on...

Nah. I still need champagne, parchment craft paper, bug repellent*, extra benadryl, tongs, noisemakers, soda, a composition notebook, & lotion. I'm also thinking about picking up a road atlas, just in case. But most of the shopping is done.

* thinking of trying your lavender oil recommendation!

I haven't started packing anything yet, so I cant be forgetting anything. But I can bet money Ill forget a pillow.

darn you, fishy, it's late and I can't go looking up words right now! compulsion.... aaaaaah.

interesting: jot is smaller than iota, being the smallest amount, as opposed to iota being a small amount.
not the same word.

tpbm can just say, "I don't know what that word means exactly; I kind of have a feel for it in that context." and leaves it at that.
