I in fact have been doing that today. Nothing super energetic, little here little there.

TPBM will consider taking a break from their substance of choice to take time to recover, kind of...
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

not really. event hough I drank a lot of vodka (for me, at least) on playa, I don't need to recover from that.
TPBM is thinking about changes to his/her electrolite regime for next year.

Don't know if that's true. I did start a shopping list for our camp.
tPbm is writing invitations to eplayans who didn't make it this year by hand and through usps.

No. But I have been making a point to see the M*A*S*Hers in town who couldn't make it this year. Decompression blows.

TPBM is trying to recreate the playa experience in their living room.

No, not really. It was so nice to see you again OR! You give great hugs for sure!

NOt as much as the apprehension I feel about the whole door not closing thing.
TPBM wants a popsicle.

popsicle? I will take anything right about now. Since I got back from TTITD, I have been eating like a maniac. I am hungry ALL THE TIME!

Damn it all to hell; I do not. My metabolism is perfectly reasonable and responsive to all stimuli. When I eat like crap and fail to work out, I show it immediately on my waist and face. When I get home from the desert, I look great . . . for two weeks!

I knew about it but have never used it!

No.

No; I had enough of those while travelling, and I'm enjoying the return to all-bran, yogurt, and berries. Light, refreshing, and... well, let's just say it keeps the clock accurate.

TPBM wants to start a new tradition involving vodka, Chinese checkers, and Twister.

Vodka does not need adornment. Although, I still think "novelty vodka night" is a possible theme night at the Kantina.
TPBM thinks that mixing camps (i.e. Booby Bar and Apokiliptika) is only going to leave me with a mother of a hangover.

Is water of life, Comrade!
TPBM is oddly pleased that the words "vodka" and "whiskey" are derived from the respective languages' word for "water" and might throw "fire water" in there if it weren't for a potential can of worms.

I think you should be musketeer about hydration.
TPBM wants to do a burner re-staging of A Streetcar Named Desire, that takes hydration therapy to new depths.

Would a "missed connections" scorekeeping thread count as culture-jamming? Because I'm sorely tempted to start one.

But it turns out the pigeon is a player. :(

TPBM plays in a band. Or is banned from playing. Something like that.

Hey!! Hey!!! I wanna hear FREEBIRD! Could you play it for me? How about at the temple next year? Please!? I'll give you a feather mohawk.
I was in a band once in high school. Then I figured out you make more money putting on shows, and only have to deal with band bullshit one night every so often. So no, I don't wish I was in a band. But I would really like to move out of my mothers basement. It smells like mold, and floods every time it rains.

TPBM wonders why we don't have a Top Asshats of Burning Man 2012 thread yet.
(Although knows the answer is because every other post is going to be about FREEBIRD)
