See, that is what I'm getting at. Due to the OP having tendonitis I didn't want to make her feel pressured that she needed to be all "grr" and physical. Even though for some people Burning Man seems to be about Sacrifice(TM) I absolutely feel it doesn't necessarily have to be. People who can't bench press 250 lbs or swing a hammer all day under the playa sun can still give fantastic gifts.Savannah wrote:

I think when trying to figure out what one's gift should be a person should think not only about the validity of the gift(which is important) but also the cost of the gift to the person, taking into consideration not only one's bank account but also one's health.
If your gift to someone costs you your health I am not sure I would call that a good gift. Dramatic, yes. But maybe not good.
If I told you you would loose all respect for me. It involves a mix of things horribly geeky and even more inappropriate. However, I do think that I need to stick around.Savannah wrote:
