back from the other side... - adventures of a red-headed stepchild in the house of love

back from the other side...
...and boy are my arms tired!

Heh heh heh.

So, another amazing year out on the playa - and I would have to say one of my very favorites (out of 11 trips.) I've enjoyed every year in different ways, but this year and last year really stand out.

I'm working on a longer report, but for now, some highlights:

- BLD rules! (Yay for camping with grown-ups, who have their shit together, know how to do it, and pull their own weight!) I have known some of these folks for 10 years, and they rock the freakin' playa.

- I am more in love with my wonderful partner jovino than ever.

- I dressed more hoochy than ever before, and have the inexplicable tan lines to prove it!

- I wound up not bringing my DJ gear out, for the first time evar. This actually worked out really well, and both Jovino and I got to spin truly great sets out there, if I do say so myself.

- Our project went great and made a lot of people happy - more on this later.

- Lots of good talks with Jovino - about bunnywarez (many ideas and a lot of inspiration), about art, and about stuff in general. Did I mention how freakin' happy I am with this man?

- Lots and lots and lots of unh unh unh unh unh too!!!

- Props to the Space Cowboys - everywhere we went, there they were, throwing down from their tricked out Unimog!

- Bunnies! (More on this later.)

- Track of the year: Just Fuck, by Tom Neville. We pretty much took its advice too!

- We made up an In and Out list which may even get published in next year's Piss Clear! (We took it over on Sunday and it made Adrian laugh, which is all the validation I need, though of course I will be thrilled if it actually hits print.)

- I am now thoroughly addicted to (of all things) pizza - thanks, Larry! (Pizza Larry, that is - not that Other Larry.)

- The Dusty Bunny Bar, voted Best Little Drive-Up Bar on the playa!

- Good times, good friends, good champagne, and a great new burn night tradition!

- And, the usual Metric Fuckton of stuff to clean, put away, etc. Better get back to it - but I will be posting a detailed report at some point.

I'm feeling: happy happy

hey girlie...

a) i wanna see pix of those tan lines :::grin::: and anything else you captured on celluloid...

b) i want the scoop about exactly how to fuck out there, and the 4-1-1 on cleanup afterwords... maybe it is not the same for the hets as it is for us dykes...but our fucks involve a ton and a half of lube... which is damn near impossible to get rid of once we are spent...

c) coffee? sometime soon?

Re: hey girlie...

I'll be uploading to flickr soon, and will definitely post a link. I took more photos this year than ever before!

I'm flattered to be asked for sex advice. ;-) In my case, I am a pretty juicy girl, and my man is the best lover I have EVER had, so we do not tend to use lube very often. However, I've been around the lube block a few times, so here are my thoughts:

- water based lube is essential! This is not the place for that everlasting silicone stuff. And I'd say experiment a bit and look for one that goes away gracefully. My all time favorite lube is called Sensual Power. It has no glycerine, is water based, goes away gracefully, and even contains soluble collagen, so it's actually good for your delicate skin!

I'm not sure where to get it, as my supply is left over from my days at the sex toy shop I used to work for but do not recommend. But it's super rad, and doesn't dry into gunk or hang out forever making you wonder how to get rid of it. ;-)

Then I would say, lots of wet wipes (unscented and with aloe/vitamin e are my requirements there. 7th Generation makes good ones.) And little towels - lots of little towels. For a real treat, heat up some water and have a nice hot towel cleanup!

And I would love to have coffee soon! Not sure when I'll be in your neck of the woods next, but if you're down here my schedule is pretty flex, and we can hang out at my casa (especially if you like tea, I am a tea fiend and have a ton of it) or I can meet you somewhere. We've been talking about this for ages, let's do it!

PS: love the icon pic! So cute, and happy!

I am heading to San Jose next Tues...

then hanging out with Miranda (Southbay Fire Monkeys and dear old friend)... and then will make my way to Oakland to stay with my Cat celestedevaneau... but sent me your phone number once more and it is a date!

I take cream in my tea though, and a ton of sugar.. hope that doesn't bastardize it!

Hugs, Tina

Hope to be joining you there next year! It's currently being discussed.

BTW, your new photo is adorable!

Glad to hear a happy, positive report! Sounds like some of the ugliness you were fearing did not transpire. Good on you!

Thanks for the blue ribbon in OWWWWWW! It seems so appropriate, although, I'm soooo sorry to smacky you on your burny butt!

Much love,

I agree: Camping with grownups is absolutely essential. (I learned that lesson the hard way in 2001.) We did however have one relationship blowout at our camp but there were enough grownups around to mediate and diffuse the situation peacefully. Phew.
