Hello again! (account necromancy)

Postby Straightveg » Fri Jan 13, 2017 10:15 am

Greetings my burner family! I just resurrected my account from several years worth of mothballs, my last login before today was in 2013. :oops:

I last (and first) attended the burn in 2012, then life happened and I moved, changed trades (electrical work is so much more fun than changing oil in cars all day) and resolved to come back to the playa in 2017 after I finished classes. Well, now its 2017 and classes are almost done, so here I am. :D

About Me:
I (like to think I) am a badass tradeswoman. I hide my freak length hair under a hard hat on a daily basis. I like reading, hot showers on cold winter days, heavy snark, and long walks on the beach provided the weather is nice, there aren't unattended screaming kids and garbage strewn about the place and I have sunscreen. I'm still vegan, hence the veg in my username. No, I'm not militant about it. Enjoy your bacon, I just don't want any. I used to qualify as straightedge by technicality, although I didn't actually identify with or participate in the scene (although CM Punk is awesome). Now I drink on occasion, so the straight part of my username is less than accurate.

I have a project for this year that I'm super excited about that actually fits with the official theme (not just burn shit and blow shit up), but I'm still fleshing a lot of it out. As a teaser, I'm planning on using a copper thermite reaction in the context of a transformation ritual.

Well, welcome back. Me, I hope to make '17 my first year. And a big congrats on the change of jobs. I use to carry my masters ticket as an electrician, now the closest I get is changing the occasional light bulb. But it is for sure better than changing oil.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Welcome back.

I used to be an electronics tech in the Navy, although currently I don't do much with it.

Welcome back, Straightveg!

Now I drink on occasion, so the straight part of my username is less than accurate.


Too bad the username "Edgyveg" seems to be taken. :)
