Yeah. I'm in a rut. Not that kind. I'd like to be in that kind...

True. But that does not imply the people I know want to know all the people you know.

tpbm keeps saying to themselves, "Don't pack so much stuff this time...", but keeps right on adding more stuff to the pile.

I'm at peace with the amount of stuff I bring. (I'm only one large suitcase over Totally Necessary.)

The person below me thinks they might have the least amount of stuff, of any of us.

I'm watching other people load out and thinking. shit! maybe I should be worried! but that would intrude on my oblivion and we can't have that.

So PBM, do you have a sound track mix for the drive out to BRC?

I did till my hard drive crashed... Now im going to be listening to Borrowed Music for the 10 hour drive.

TPBM Needs a second vehicle for everything they bring.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Yep. I wanna go now! Not three days from now. This reminds me a lot of what it was like as a kid waiting for Santa Clause.

I'm trying to use eplaya to keep my eyes open, in fact.

TPBM needs to get the air pressure in the tires of their vehicle checked!

slices of pie; quit while you're ahead.

yes, but it was asked by someone who would never in a million years ask me much. It was like, "would you do me a favor?" "yes." "Would you move that box out of the way so I can put this cart here?"

tpbm is easy with their stuff. It doesn't weigh on them much.

The person before me thinks this is the cutest game ever and will have fresh veggies somehow on playa.

Still at home, sadly. Though I was in Kuala Lumpur while the peat swamps in Sumatra were ablaze. The Air Pollution Index was over 700 - above 300 is considered "Hazardous" and scores above 500 warrant a state of emergency declaration.

TPBM is determined to be the last post on this thread before the burn.
