....Spend my time in the thrift shops looking for playa wear

....put paint on canvas

....ponder the amazing things I've experienced at TTITD

....worry about getting a ticket

....have a truck and a big ass dry ice chest

....am pondering a trailer to haul more stuff

....have friends that are just as weird as me

....have dusty tutus in my closet
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.

Roll paint onto my stuffed animals and use them as 'stamps' to decorate my tent.

Whenever I drive past an outdoor storage lot for motorhomes, RV trailers, boats etc, I always look to see if any of the RVs and motorhomes were at TTITD based on the way they look.
Whenever I drive past Prisim Magic on Pyramid Hwy, I always say, "theres the Burning Man store" to whoever is with me. Unfortunately they are relocating.

I do the same thing Catman. And I just moved to Reno so now I feel like I'm doing it constantly! I also get really excited when I see a BM sticker on someone's car or even on a signpost in my grocery store parking lot.

I also have learned how to dance like my crazy-person self in the default world. It took a couple of burns to really feel comfortable doing this, but you know what? I always have at least one person join me and if anyone judges me for it, they can go fuck themselves! (I'm still working on applying this lesson to other areas of my life :))

- Have far less free space in my apartment (and organize my stuff better)
- Have to look for glazed over eyes in non-burners when I share tales from the playa
- Want to ride my bike more often
- Say the words "Burning Man" at least 4 times a day
- Need a job that will be easier to leave for two weeks around Labor Day (aka. spend more time thinking about changing careers)
- Have a lot more skills related to metal fabrication (and know what metal fume fever is)
- Spend time in Oakland
- Know more good people who value creating art for the sake of creating art
- Know what it feels like to do CPR on someone who needs it
- Can't wait to get more time on the plasma torch

..... Am filled with longing for the Burn when at music festivals because:
- There is trash everywhere
- The portos don't have Robbidobbs' words of wisdom pasted to the walls
- People are selling beers out of their coolers instead of handing them out to make new friends
