Well, It's Saturday and it's also happy hour. 3:24 to be exact. I have nothing in particular to report except that I bought 2 inner tubes. Made a scottish kilt for my campmate out of some fabulous ladies skirt. I'm off to the flea tomorrow to sell off a big bunch of costume clothes cause I can't get into the upstairs rooms. I swear. If it wasn't for spell check you wouldn't be able to decipher this coded message. Not posting so often has worked out great for me. It takes a bit of time to read all the latest. Admit it. Most of it is traif pussy. Unusable fodder for the incinerator. At work yesterday I doodled a layout for my camp. It sent me into a long daydream of tents and coolers. Ah.....can't wait. I have so many projects going you would think the damn event lasted 2 months. Eplaya is the best part of the off season. The off season lasts 51 weeks.

I wish I could get drunk on cough syrup.... No alcohol til the cold is gone... :(

(Wait, maybe hot mead would cure it? Honey is good after all...)

PAH - As your doctor, I prescribe a course of strong drink! Get your germs drunk, and then let your white blood cells (who should have built up a tolerance by now) take advantage of them like the dirty little germs they are.

Doc, I understand... it's just... I got a presentation tomorrow and I hope that that tiny bit that's left of my voice will somehow make it through the morning.

I shall, of course, promptly consult a liquor store on the way home. Hot mead it'll be. And then I shall come here and post. After I turned on auto correct.

A hoppy beer can do wonders to restore a voice, but maybe that's just me. :shock:

OK. So it's closing in on us. I thought Burning Man would never get here but now I'm feeling the crush. Sew the tent, make lists, service the van, have a yard sale, sort the costumes, contact friends, FINISH THOSE COSTUMES, get everything in order at work for my absence.......How many days before I leave? Shit! I don't know because I haven't signed up for my Greeter shifts. Oh. They aren't doing that yet. Whew. I still have time. OK. Make a list.

For those of you that may view me as an alcoholic, Yea, maybe. I drink a glass of wine with dinner almost every day when I come home from work. (4 PM) I'm drunk for approx. one hour. Then I watch TV with my hubby, do some 'home' stuff and go back to work when he craps out. I work a split shift by choice. I can make my own schedule. Closer to the burn I need to finish projects. Lately I've vowed to make one fur project a day. I'm about 4 behind.

I see alot of mean posts. I feel sorry for those selfish virgins that don't bother to read or research. My Godchild told me last week that she wants to come in 2015. Good luck with that. Sure. I'll bring her gear and water and food and tent and WHATEVER. But she and her girlfriend are not camping with me. I swear! I will never bring anyone with me. They can camp next door. They can take the burner express. They can get their own tickets. I'll answer questions but they have to have a working knowledge of the system. Yes I'm very selfish when it comes to my vacation.

My nephew keeps asking if I'll take him along sometime. I think he's mainly motivated by the fact that he'd not need to shower for a week. Should I be concerned? He's just 11, so he'd definitely have to be a bit older. I'll happily hang out with him - but no babysitting on the playa. :mrgreen:

Whew! Thanks 420. I hate to drink alone. Actually, (That word normally means that someone is getting ready to lie. but not in this instance.), I'm a bar manager and don't want to join the DUI club so all my wineing is at home. That's one of the great things about vacation. No driving.

Ratty, give me about 7 more hours and i plan on hoisting a glass or three myself (purely for medicinal purposes of course!)

Will check-in then and we can compare vintages.

Sounds like fun but I'll be drinking in 5 hours. Sober and working in 7. But I'll be there in spirit. In fact a grey coyote can be my spirit animal tonight. I hope they aren't scavengers.

Where did I see that t-shirt that said, "My spirit animal is Jack Daniels"?

Well I am not only drunk posting now but also drunk schwagging, if that's a word, making jewelry out of squished pennies. :? My son is drunk sewing but I have sense enough to stay away from sharp objects. 8)

Mdf, Are you squishing them in a dapper? I got one for xmas and love it. Although, I keep cracking a small portion of the pennies. The coin/silver buying store sells old wheat pennies for a nickle and buffalo nickels for 20¢. They make beautiful trinkets. I'm dapping foreign beer caps for my schwag.

I have no idea what dapping means (google is not much of a help) but do you need more foreign beer caps?

Thanks Kat, I have tons of caps. If you google dapping and doming block or dapping set you'll get the drift. It's a heavy metal cube that enables you to pound things into a bowl shape. I love it.

The pennies are cracking because they need to be annealed before you dap them. The coins get hardened when they're produced, so the metal can't take the strain if you try to dome them too far (you should be fine with a shallow dome done quickly, the more you strike the metal the more likely it is to crack). I use a hardware-store propane torch for all my metal work because I don't have a safe space to use an oxy-acetylene torch (just a $15 tank of propane with a torch nozzle on it, I think it was about $20 to get the one with the torch nozzle attached, then you just move it to a new tank as one empties)

And, yes, I love my dapping block as well.

Eric, I can't thank you enough. I'm speechless. Well, not really. How did I not know this? Why hadn't I been told this on any of the tutorials I've watched. So THAT's why the 'smithy' holds the horseshoe over the fire repeatedly. Thank you for taking the time to post the video. I owe you. (At least $1.67 that I would have ruined.)

Ratty I get pennies with the Man squished into them from voiceinthedarkness, an eplayan and member of Barbie Death Camp, a dear man who has one of those machines you see at tourist places that squashes pennies into souvenirs. 8) He had it at the M&G last year, dunno if you saw it or got one? This year I am bringing a bunch already made into earrings & pendants, installed on a sculpture my son made of quarter-inch steel rod, arranged so the pendant cords look like long pink hair and the earrings look like a belly-dancing costume. :lol:

Well, that is the PLAN, anyway... :? :? :? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Good! I have this collection of bottle caps that I was saving for an art project. But since the project is done I was actually going to throw them out... this weekend.

This dapping thing looks really cool. Do you think 9-10 year old kids could do it or does it require a lot of strength? I guess it depends on the material...
