I am in contact with the inventor and artist behind the Partybike:

I want Burning Man to have one. I want *us* to have one. The cost is
$13,750 + transport from port of NY.

That's a good chunk of change, and rather intimidating, but I think
it's a worthwhile cause (read around the site to see how the bike has
been used by other communities). It's clearly a COMMUNITY toy.

So what do you think? How would I best go about raising that chunk of
cash to get the bike for Burning Man? I'm thinking of donating it to
the Burning Man Community itself in some way, but I'd kinda like to
house it here in San Diego, maybe rent it out for events and community
fundraisers and teambuilding workshops and the like.

Any thoughts?

Also: Is there already one? This sounds like maybe I something I should ask BMorg about, huh?

This is no weirder than getting Ouchie the Clown to moderate board meetings...

(Edit: This seems well-timed, with regards to This Article...)

Hair Stuff

As each day slowly brings me closer and closer to stepping foot on teh Playa again, I can't help but wonder . . . what am I going to do with my flippin' hair?!

I've sort of been considering putting my hair up in a couple buns in fishnets and leaving them that way for the week. I was also sort of considering spraying said buns in AquaNet to keep them from falling apart, thouh one would think wrappig them up in hair nets would do the job. (All this would be done so that I could wrap dread falls around the buns.)

Then I realized that would probably be REALLY gross after a week on the Playa. Really gross I can handle, but hair damaged beyond repair would suck . . . so would buns crusting and falling off my head. ;)

Does anyone have any cost-effective fun suggestions about what to do with straight, shoulder-length hair? I don't want to wrap my hair up in a scarf again each day if I can help it!
