I would never tell the cashier at my bank if they gave me too much money. I'm very polite.

TPBM doesn't use money . Unless it's necessary.

As in cash? No, I use my debit card most of the time. When I have cash in my pocket it usually leads me to the bar.

TPBM would prefer credit didn't exist

More than don't prefer, I actively don't like it. Only place I will drink it is on the playa, and then it's just usually to be polite.



tpbm will also consume things outside of their normal diet to be polite on-playa
Eric, I do like beer but much prefer whiskey and rum. So if we should meet on the playa (and I hope we do) that is what I will have.

No, I have to admit, despite it's significant drawbacks, money is darn useful, and simplifies what would otherwise be very difficult situations.

Not yet, but I have plans for building one around here somewhere. Was very tempted when Elliot was giving away that motorcycle.

TPBM doesn't like frozen drinks.

Just the opposite, I am a little too interested in frozen strawberry margaritas, piña coladas, banana daiquiris; pretty much reminiscent of a Slurpee (including Slurpees themselves; also very acceptable).

It has just occurred to me that I somehow manage to drink only about 1 per year. What IS that? . . . I'm living my life all wrong.


The person below me has proper old-fashioned suspenders that button on to their trousers, instead of clipping.

As much as I'd like to own a motorcycle, which is to say a lot. really.
BUT I don't handle VERY DEADLY things as a matter of course. I drive, I use knives, etc., but I think I'm better off not shooting or riding a motorcycle.
Let's say I'm conflicted.

tpbm has no similar conflict.

Moving slowly has its place. And there are definitely days that moving slowly is about all I can manage.

Col. Mustard wore braces, (those suspenders with buttons).

I saw a guy Laying Pipe in the Center Cafe. It could have been the Colonel.

My oven takes longer to heat up than it does to cook anything so I don't bake much.

TPBM likes to scare kids on Halloween.

luckily and unfortunately, i haven't had much work since before burning man. it was lucky because i could plan out my whole burn on company time. and it's unfortunate because sitting at work all day with nothing to do is fucking lame. thankfully, you all keep me entertained.

I try almost every food I "don't like" once a year. Most of the time I still don't like it but there's a few things I decide I like as time goes on. Living with a set list of things you do and don't like makes life fairly boring.

TPBM doesn't think i'm weird for not liking Sushi (Like everyone in San Diego seems to think)

no, I'm ok with killing stuff and eating it. I'm not ok with killing just to kill. I'm not ok with suffering. but, yup, I'll eat most anything that will sit still, (or at least not move too far away).
