so tonight I walked down the local bike path to the corner store, practicing my poi swing. I got a few uncomfortable looks, and a couple of kids who stopped to say it was pretty cool. but what's notable is how weird it felt. even something so simple can feel so out-of-the-ordinary when walking around in the real world.
it's great that it doesn't feel that way at Burning Man..
...at Big Lots, Lomita.
Safety orange, and Lime (flourescent) green. Campmate gets the orange ones, as I already have orange coat... and cannot "match carpet and drapes".
I get the lime green ones... anyone else want a pair.. Going going... (oh, $3.99 a pair).
However, none found in "Tickle Me Elmo" red... I looked. It would be fun to wear Elmo around the playa.
"Oh Boy! , Elmo Likes, Preeeeety Lady"..
"Wow, Elmo getting Hot".
"Help! Help!, Elmo on fire!".
"ouch!! ouch!! ouch!! Elmo Have Playa Foot, No more walking on Elmo you fucking fuck".
im so excited for this year...
there has been so much confusion and disapointing factors in planning for this years burn, and now i have come to the last hurdle...
to find a ride there for my good friend evan and i (joanna). we would like to leave sometime between the 27-29th and arrive home anytime between the 6-10th. looking for a ride out of seattle we would of course help pay for gas and travel expenses.
please if you or anyone you know can take us to burning man we will love you forever!!!!!
im starting to get a little panicked since we are approaching so quickly but it is burning man and i believe that everything will work out, and we have overcome so much to be able to go this year that for it not to work out at the last minute would be so upsetting....i will get there and one of you will help!
thank you and i hope you all have a fabulous burn!
ps (ive already posted on bm ride share)
Anyone not going to this year's burning man festival: place everything you own in your home and set it on fire, circle it counterclockwise and reflect. I assure you this will be a thoroughly cleansing and enlightening experience. Don't forget to clean up afterwards. Remember kids, LEAVE NO TRACE!
