Yes, yes I do. And how.

No, I'm concentrating on my drinking instead after a busy ass day that included peeling one motorcyclist off of the road.

TPBM knows firsthand how useful peroxide can be :roll:

Yes, but not for peeling motorcyclists off roads.


TPBM wonders how motorcycle campers bring enough stuff to camp out for a day, much less a week.

I do wonder that. A couple camped next to us last year. They showed up on a Harley with a tiny 2 person tent. I think they ate the playa dust and lived off coffee and bags of ice.

TPBM has a pile of stuff to take that will NEVER fit in their ride.

Listening to their circular logic would drive me batty. It's almost like they're becoming one of those corporate cultures that just talks to themselves, so they can justify everything by the assumption "we all think like we do so everyone thinks like we do".

TPBM wishes their brain could focus on the project at hand without trying to make four more in their head as well...

I don't know about accomplished but I did work for a 4 star chef, dealt with the kitchen staff/chefs/sous' of all the leading NYC restaurants on a daily basis and had benefit of the spoils of one of the most well known local suppliers of produce to said restaurants (and was exposed to many German cursewords). It may be shit with benefits....but oh what benefits.

No, but from practically everything else... and not getting my caffeine from other sources. (I've never developed a taste for coffee-- although I have only once sampled the good kind.)


TPBM has stopped drinking soda, coffee, and other caffeinated stuff in preparation for the playa.

Hell know. I'll do what ever I want on Playa (besides moop, piss, or poop on the playa). Shit, I even bought a little coffee pot just for the RV. Yeah coffee dehydrates you....blah blah blah.... thats what water is for.

TPBM is starting to panic because a lot of people are bailing on their camp.

Nope, more are being added daily. It's almost like us parents are rabbits or something :wink:

No...hordes of dusty little burners sound delightful! Maybe I could find a mini-me?? I already have one at home, but can't seem to justify bringing her to the Playa...seems like it might spoil the fun...

Yeah kinda. Though, the wee little one would have to be either young enough that they always do what you want them too, or old enough that they can tell you what the need. I think that 2-3 years old, might be the wrong time. Though, I'm thinking either 2012 or maybe 2013 I will take my niece. She is well be 10 on August 16th. So in 2012 she will be 11, and in 2013 she will be 12. I think those could be good years to take a youngster.

TPBM has considered taken a youngster with them to the burn.

Well, don't.

Not really. I love corrupting children, but I'm to close to the edge out there to take care of someone else.

Yup. I'll be missing the Temple Burn because of one of my shifts, but I've thought of a bright side: it means I can pack up my shade Sunday afternoon, then go to work, and on Labor Day morning will only have to strike my tent & skedaddle.

The person below me uses the burn as an excuse--or opportunity--to eat or drink specific guilty pleasures.

Yeah, and it isn't pleasant and I can't get in to see my doctors until MONDAY! (I think that this new medication they have me on is screwing me up instead of helping-- and they told me I'm not to just quit taking it. :x )
