Here's the thing: if I had gone to Burning Man this year, I would be missing the Old 97's at the Fillmore tomorrow night. (That's not why I didn't go.)

While I'm glad I'm not on the playa right now, I can't wait for everyone to get back and to hear all their war stories.

I am weak

I couldn't take it anymore and washed my hair last night. I even used shampoo for the first time in years! My dreads came apart easily. Ah, sweet conformity! :D
aceofkittens: (burningman)
So here's my plan: I'm not going to wash my hair until I finish all my post-Burning Man cleanup. The playa caked into my hair will give me strength.

I will then most likely have to get all my hair shaved off. I already have dreads!

I have limped in with the theme camp application for 2010, just under the wire. This means that right now, I am still maintaining that I will be at Burning Man this year, along with my theme camp, Ocean's Serene (the spa next door to [ profile] bigkgbguy's Stardust Lounge Casino).

I figured I better get the camp registered, but whether I actually go or not is still unclear. If worse comes to worse, and I have to drop out, I'll deputize someone else to run it. In the meantime, let me know if you are interested in camping there.

Maybe taking this step will get me all excited about it, but right now I am just too tired. Blaaaahhhh....
aceofkittens: (burningman)
All right, well, we're off to Burning Man tonight. Camp Ocean's Serene — Adapt & 8:30. Here goes nothing!
aceofkittens: (burningman)
Once again, I have not been updating. Bah! I promise I will have a real update soon. No, really. I have all kinds of exciting things to say about work, life, drunken exploits, Chip, and, of course, Burning Man.

Speaking of which, I leave you with this IM conversation from this morning:

[ profile] aceofkittens: I had awful Burning Man anxiety dreams
[ profile] invisiblebf: sorry to hear that. were you running late for your camp when you realized you hadn't studied at all the rest of the year and had left all of your stuff at home and were naked?

Well, of course I was naked - it was Burning Man! ;)
aceofkittens: (burningman)
Ok, I have to say that this was [ profile] takeitez' idea, but it still amuses me to no end, so I present to you...

My LJ post where I pretend to Twitter as though I were at Burning Man!

It's not a real someecard, but it should be. So I made it myself. :) Gill Sans Light is worth every penny.

I made another one, for those going to the desert to send to all of us staying behind.
Yes, Toastmantom, I was thinking of you )
aceofkittens: (burningman)
For some reason, it was just too hard to take photos at Burning Man this year, but I did get a few good ones.

My playa photos, I will show you them... )

Reality & work loom before me... peace out. :)
aceofkittens: (burningman)
Earlier today, [ profile] cheesehead1701 and I set out for Burning Man. We are spending the night in Reno. We ate at the weird vegetarian diner. An Elvis impersonator showed us how to find it.

Also, I won about $30 playing nickel slots.

Well, I'll see you all on the flip side! :)

I can't find the shade structure!!! AUUUUGH!

ETA: Disaster averted. Shade structure located. Ah, what would Burning Man prep be without these little moments of abject hysteria!
aceofkittens: (burningman)
So, on Sunday, I went with Dave and Katya to dim sum, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and the Garment District. I made some very important and totally necessary Burning Man purchases. Look, this stuff is important!! Um.... um.

O hai I am wearing your luck )

And what goes well with that? )

Why you not wear wig? )

And the insanity continues! :)

Last week proved to be a very long one and I kept meaning to update and never did. I had lots happen and yet no motivation whatsoever to blog about it. I'll try to do a summary. With 2 photos.

Week in Summary )
aceofkittens: (yay)
I just rolled back into LA after a stealth weekend in SF to bring my boys home. It is hot hot hot here. :( BUT there was an amazing gift waiting for me from [ profile] _stillsong_ — an incredible green cape that I will wear at Burning Man.

For which I should probably put in my vacation request.

THANK YOU, [ profile] _stillsong_ ♥ ♥

Anyway, the weekend was great, if all too short, I didn't see everyone I wanted to, and I was rip-roaring drunk a lot. Now, the reality of going back to work tomorrow rears its ugly head.
aceofkittens: (consumer whore)
Earlier today, I went to Costco to buy sunscreen. And... they didn't have it. So I ended up buying a bunch of other stuff, including some Burning Man supplies. Now that I am definitely going, it's good to plan ahead.

Unfortunately, no, I am not doing my Burning Man art project. It got too complicated and expensive. Hey, I've always been more about the concept than the follow-through. :) Another time, perhaps...

Tomorrow, I'm going fabric shopping with Space Captain Puppy McDog! Afterwards, champagne madness & dim sum, not necessarily in that order! :)
aceofkittens: (burningman)
So, last night I got my rejection letter for my Burning Man art project grant proposal. I'm not at all upset I didn't get it — waiting was the hardest part and now I can move forward with exploring other funding options!

Yes, I'm still going to go ahead with the art project, and I'll probably be posting about it here. I thought about making a filter for that babbling, but it looks like I'm all out of filters and anyway, I'll tag it henceforth and you can just skip it if you don't want to read about it. :)

On the other hand, if you want to know more and want to be part of my fearless crew, let me know and I'll tell you how you can come aboard, my little buccaneer! :) Arrr!

To celebrate being out of limbo, I am hopefully going to Disneyland tomorrow.

Pimp my ho

I am really quite excited by the art meme. I have a lot of ideas and I can't wait to send people cool stuff! :)

So I'd like to pimp out [ profile] toastmantom — run, do not walk, to sign up for his art meme right here! You won't regret it. I gar-on-tee it.

In other news, I have been on a moth-killing spree ("27 in one blow") and most of the Burning Man stuff is finally sorted out, so the house is almost clean enough to bust out the DDR pads and start training for my inevitable battle with [ profile] mr_chip and [ profile] hint.

Speaking of DDR, have I mentioned that at Burning Man, I played Dance Dance Immolation? :) Well, I did. And it was so awesome!

Proof! )
aceofkittens: (me and chip)
Boy, am I tired. I suppose I should let my boss know I'm not coming in tomorrow. Seeing as how I'm still 375 miles away.

Pics, stories, etc. to follow...

Chip is really happy to see me!!! :)

Woo! Hair!

Aug. 28th, 2006 05:42 pm
aceofkittens: (woohoo!)
My hair is now streaked with purple and red. Woo!

I absolutely love it and may not cut it off like I planned originally. My corporate lifestyle be damned! :)

So, I'm going on vacation tomorrow and will be back in a week. Try not to burn anything down while I'm gone and ... well, I may burn some stuff down while I'm gone. :)

See ya in September! :)
