there's a light...
(...over at the frankenstein place...)

...at the end of the tunnel, actually.  we are almost done with all of the burning man orders.  this gives us roughly a week to get our shit together to get to the playa ourselves!

I have a list of things we need to get sorted (just the categories at this point.)  fortunately, we have already been so many times that we really know the drill (and are well-equipped with the durable stuff) so it should be do-able.

here's my list:

- food/water/bar stock (started - we have a vacuum sealer to help with cooler management; nonperishable food gathering is underway; keg(s) reserved; water is easy)
- gear (need to repair tent; reinforce shade structure; inventory rebar - maybe go to homo depot; REI?)
- costumes/shoes/etc (need to figure out what to bring, and pack it)
- hair (ack!  need to bleach/color; find someone to braid in my dreads - my girl left town before I got my dreads in the mail.  eep!)
- return keg from bday party (oakland); pick up keg(s) for playa bar (SF); also need champagne!
- errand day in SF - we need costumes for the Gigsville Prom; inevitable SF errands (New York Apparel, etc) - who knows what else?!
- other errands (Longs, TJs, etc etc)
- arrange cat sitter
- hotel reservation for Reno stopover on the way home (must determine when we think we'll want to leave the playa - no celly service out there means it's very challenging to change on the fly)
- DJ Rig(s) - coordinate with Comfort & Joy Camp for loan of my gear; set up rig for our camp; write up setup instructions for CnJ; work out truck logistics with both camps
- trucks - figure out what can go on camp truck and coord; coord with CnJ re getting rig they are using on their truck
- pull/sort CDs
- design and build kitty shrine
- pay cc bills, rent etc
- event sked - prelim. list of what/where/when - Thursday is already insane - a cocktail party at 4pm which will be full of my friends (and which has happened every year since at least 1996); Billion Bunny March; friends' commitment ceremony... etc!  and that's just Thursday.

it'll all get done, I know...

I'm feeling: hopeful hopeful

I need to try Burning Man one of these days. Too bad I didn't get the job in Winnemucca.

I know it's totally unrelated...but reading your 'to-do' list, springs AbFab to mind.

I did the mad dash today myself. Agh....so much to do and so little time.

shade shelter

Do you remember my big shade shelter (LoudJEN used it at a lot of camping trips after I procreated)? If you wanted to, you could borrow it for BMan, but you'd have to add "pick up Carole & Anton's shade structure" to your list.

oh, also

We have a really fabulous tent that's not going anywhere that week, so you could borrow that one instead of buying a new one or fixing yours, if you liked..

there's a light...

(...over at the frankenstein place...)

Janet Weiss In the velvet darkness
Of the blackest night
Burning bright
There's a guiding star
No matter what or who you are


Brad and Janet There's a light

Chorus Over at the Frankenstein place

Brad and Janet There's a light

Chorus Burning in the fireplace

Brad and Janet There's a light, light
In the darkness of everybody's life


Riff Raff The darkness must go
Down the river of night's dreaming
Flow morphia slow
Let the sun and light come streaming
Into my life, into my life


Brad and Janet There's a light

Chorus Over at the Frankenstein place

Brad and Janet There's a light

Chorus Burning in the fireplace
There's a light, a light


Brad and Janet In the darkness of everybody's life
