5:19 pm - I should go home
Since I don't much feel like talking anymore, here's ALL the pictures I took at Burning Man:

They're not all safe for work. Enjoy.

current mood: sad

(scream real loud)

5:05 pm - wtf.
Okay. I've been formulating how to properly put down the Burning Man experience into words, with minimal luck. Then this a.m., I found out danigolden died and now I don't feel like writing anything at all.

In Japan, they don't call it Japan, they call it Nippon.
I'll miss you my friend.

Hi there everybody.

So... I live in Oregon now, did I mention that? Yep.
I'm working in Portland at an insurance agency. We mostly sell insurance to companies and rich people. I answer the phones, fax things, do random stuff, and get paid a decent wage to do it. I even have benefits and free parking now.
If anyone was worried that I may have died or had children, fear not. I just don't have internet access at home, and I'm scetchy about using the internet at work. In fact, the only reason I'm updating now is because everyone else is either on vacation or at lunch so I'm free to surf about unrestrained. I found your "happily childfree" site, Phoena, good job! It's what reminded me that I might want to come around here and touch base with everyone. It's also distracting me from my exciting data-entry project, which is always a blessing.

Sorry I'm so out of touch, but things happen. Things like moving into the sticks where there's no reliable 'net connection.

At least I have netflix to keep me company.

Catch you all later.

current mood: okay

7:26 am - can't hold still
I've moved again! That's me, wild and crazy and never staying put. Or something. The good news is I now live close to PEATE! and AIMEE! and VIRGINIA&TOM! The bad news is, I don't have internet access. Oh well.

Lived through the 2 year mark with minimal angst. It doesn't hurt any less, but it's a familiar pain now. Speaking of which, my brother and I finally got the tattoo we've been meaning to get since Dad died. It looks pretty groovy. Pictures to come later.

Well, I'd better go, I have things to see, bank accounts to close, and cars to drive. Later skater.

10:02 am - brain droppings
A few notes.

* It has been foggy in Sequim for days. Nice thick foggy-fog.
* Fabric softener rules.
* I just found underwear under my coffee table. Either my life is cooler than previously suspected or I am a pig. Or both.
* Someday I will be a rock star.
* Pets are fun!

Dear general public,

"A lot" is two words.
"No one" is two words as well!

Thank you.

In the spirit of the upcoming yultide season (which I am growing ever more weary of yearly) here are the rules to puppysmuggler's traditional holiday water game:

2 to 37

several gallons of water (drinkable)
pinata filled with dried lima beans and red whips candy
functioning toilet/portajohn

Every player drinks 4 8-oz glasses of water
Whoever has to pee first is the loser and is referred to as "Carol" for the rest of the day
Whoever lasts longest before peeing is the winner and recieves the pinata

Use coffee instead of water.

kidwhatever and I will be playing sometime next month. This is a game that can really be enjoyed by the whole family, and makes a great tradition. It's also fun to tell your co-workers about and see how many you can convince to play at their christmas parties.

Oh my god, Adobe didn't crash when I opened it. I am now afraid to ever close it again.

I was at work and the music playing was a happy-happy song that I like fairly well even though I've heard it 10 thousand times. I believe it's the song that 6 flags has as their theme... the one with the old guy who dances.
Anyhow, I'm quietly doing paperwork and the circuit is FULL of ladies. There were probably 3 spots left open.
A lady SCREAMS from the middle of the circuit "HEY!! Turn on some REAL music!!!!"

3 things.
1) Just because you don't like it doesn't make it fake music.
2) How do you know everyone else isn't enjoying the hell out of it?
3) Shut the fuck up.

So, I turned on some craptacular Cher remixes. That'll teach her.

I went to a Veteran's Day event at the local Coast Guard base today. It was very good, and John Amos was the keynote speaker. Yay, I've finally encountered a celebrity.

Please take a moment or two to remember/thank a Veteran today.

4:26 pm - Question for everyone
What are your guilty displeasures?
Guilty pleasures is something people love to talk about. Britney Spears. Paris Hilton. Gossip magazines. The Backstreet Boys. Whatever. Guilty displeasures, no one ever mentions.

I can't remember if it was me or kidwhatever or some strange Captain Planet blending of our amazing brains who came up with this phrase, but I love it and I want to know more. So tell me... what do you NOT like that may be socially unacceptable to dislike? For example, not liking kittens would be a guilty displeasure. This is not something you would blurt out in mixed company.

I'll go first.
I do NOT like Shakespeare. I find his work to be annoying and unenjoyable.
I also do not like cheesecake in any form. I don't care how much your mom/boyfriend/girlfriend/dog likes your recipe, it makes me gag.

Okay... GO!

Edited to add:
Scooby Doo is not funny. I don't like him either.

current mood: curious

9:39 am - I... have... that... knowledge!
I, in my secret laboratory, have discovered the recipe for the softest, fluffiest, hardest-to-get-out-of bed EVAR. It has taken months of research, garage saling, and thrift store-scouring, but I have done it.

The process is as follows (taken directly from field notes):

FIND and ACQUIRE the following essential ingredients:

2 comforters - $2
egg crate-style foam pad - free
super-deluxe crop-circle patterned foam pad - $5
"mattress protector" cotton pad sheet thing - $9
mattress taken from behind furniture store - free
bed frame - free from mom's garage
bed slats - free (scrap wood stolen from re-roofing project)
down mattress pad - $10 at thrift store
down comforter - $5 at garage sale

Wash everything in giant washing machine at the laundry mat - $10 (includes drying)

Clear a space in your tiny bedroom
Put together bed frame, attempt to put slats in
Go outside and cut 1 inch off all slats
Put slats in bed
Put crappy old mattress in bedframe
Cover mattress with (IN ORDER)
2 old comforters
2 foam pads
down pad
Wrap up top 5 layers with the "mattress protector" to form a vaguely bed-shaped layer of feathery wonder
Cover top "mattress" with a fitted sheet
Make your bed, not forgetting to use the down comforter
Lay down and never get back up ever again. Ever.

Total cost: $41
Total estimated time: 8 months.
I'll leave the "priceless" line to YOU.

current mood: pleased
