Yup.

Oblique? I'd call that obscurely opaque.

TPBM prefers an answer that at least satisfies a wee bit of curiosity.

Correct! I think the answer should intrigue, educate, or entertain. And occasionally disgust.

TPBM is looking forward to the long drive to the Playa this year.

They're safely on the side of the fridge,,,, right where they've been since February.

TPBM is amazed at how many people actually waited until now to buy a ticket.

mostly amazed at the folks who are mad at BMorg because they waited to buy...

TPBM wishes there were a way to 'hide' the ticket forum, which is cluttering up the place something fierce!

nah, I do my best to adhere to "no expectations" and I consider fantasies to be part of that.

Not exactly China, more like Costa Rica. For the same amount of cash we could stay at some all inclusive joint.

But that would be stupid. Who wants to go to the beach when you can go to the Playa?

TPBM doesn't even for a second consider skipping Burning Man.

Yep, it reassures me that at least I am not that kind of nut! :lol:

Always looking for any up grades to my gear. Though, I am quit content with a bandanna. I'm more on the hunt of the perfect goggles.

TPBM doesn't like any of the goggles they have... Which is too many already.

Indeed, but when is that not the case?

TPBM is seriously considering revamping a project that they had previously considered complete.

Yeah pretty much every project has been redesigned at least 2 times!

TPBM is interested if any GOOD eplayans will come out of the massive surge of new members just looking for tickets.
