My dad bought a dodge ram with a topper after the divorce made a platform from some plywood and 4x4 and put a cheap IKEA mattress on it so he could sleep on it and also keep his stuff in Tupperware underneath it.

Not the best but he was allowed to sleep over in camp sites with it.

I knew something was up... Zee job just got outsourced. Going to have to scramble after the burn.

When I started at that job, I love the company, the people, the challenge. Then things started to change, new managers - staff replacements, budget cuts, etc...

Always have believed that change is good. Especially when I am involved. Doesn't feel like an opportunity right now, but I know this will be good for me in the long run.

Thanks former employer... {gah!!}

Sorry to hear that, but you have a good attitude.

Burning has really helped my attitude towards how I deal with life. Yesterday, I told a prospective employer when they asked where I expected to be in the pay scale they offered. I replied, "At the top, because I'm that good". This from someone who has never felt comfortable tooting their own horn. And I've gotten screwed over by my lack of self-confidence many times.

I'm not willing to take defaultia on their terms anymore-if you don't like the way I am, fuck off. My clients like me the way I am. Or they go somewhere else. I'm not compromising myself for a paycheck anymore.

Sometimes change is beyond our control. Complaining, griping, resisting - doesn't stop it from happening.

their loss, not mine. New doors open, this actually makes some decisions I have been pondering a bit easier :)

I am heading down to the US on Friday, will be on-playa this Saturday. I'll worry about the default world when I get home...

I am going to enjoy my 2 weeks on the playa and 1 week in CA. Then I will deal with this opportunity my former employer gave me.

I just dodged the biggest fucking bullet in the history of playa prep...

My tent has been in storage since I got back from the 2010 Burn. We wound up with about a zillion people helping me to pack the damn thing, because the wind was picking up, and I haven't looked at it since. It didn't wind up neatly in the bag that time for obvious reasons, so I thought tonight I would go out while I still had some light and re-roll it.

The fucking rainfly wasn't packed with it.

So now I get to go back to my mom's on Sunday and dig through the basement AGAIN to figure out if one of the other bags we were shoving out of the way was my rainfly. And if not, I'm grabbing the 9x9 dome that I saw down there and saying fuckit.

And then crying over the fact that the tent Fishy bought me only got used fucking once.

The smaller tent might be better for me this year, anyfuckingway - I know I can put that one up by my fucking self. Let my new camp mates think I'm at least marginally self-reliant for the first year, hm?

FUCK!

I went to start turning in my cans & bottles I've saved for actually the last two years, and although the pile of big garbage bags was at least 5 ft tall x 5 ft wide and 10 ft long about a week and a half ago, today I have a few bags of bottles, and only a bag & a half of cans. And the cans that were left were all from a party I had last week, and the last week's worth.

Someone stole my fucking cans. It's not like its going to ruin my burn, but I save up the damn things for emergencies or to gas up my van for Burning Man. Gas is over $4/gallon here. It's going to take over $100 bucks to fill it, and I'll need more in Wadsworth. I was rushed last year and didn't turn 'em in, so I should have about $300 worth of cans and more in plastic. You couldn't see the things from the street, my house is completely fenced in, and I have a guy living in a trailer in my driveway, plus two dogs in the yard. It's not like someone could easily snatch them.

I'm throwing out one of my roommates this weekend, and I think he took 'em, although there's no way to prove it. He dismantled my bike for parts without asking, so it's not like he'd have any compunction about stealing my cans.

Is there no fucking ID law when selling metal there?

If not, try showing his photo to the most likely places.

I've caught more than one person selling stolen metal.
One we jumped on while he was in line with stolen stuff.

Not for cans & bottles. Other scrap, yeah. Shit, this summer theives were taking out street lights, by stealing the wire.

Somehow, I don't think anyone could get by Darryl's trailer at night rattling garbage bags full of cans. And everyone here is home all the time, I work from home, my bf is unemployed, Darryl's on disability and the roomie is unemployed. Dogs bark like crazy just from someone walking down the street, much less coming in the yard.

Ah, it could be worse. A couple of years, I really needed the cash to fill the van. I've been frugal, life is good. But there is something very satisfying about handing over your garbage and getting a wad of cash!

Something satisfying about catching a thief too.
I suggest trying to ID him selling cans with a picture.

If Darryl has tv and ac going, possible to not hear almost anything outside, I would guess.
You will know though.

;-(

ugh.

i dont know what to do!


my 10 yr old kat is sick.. past 3-4 days have been tough.. he saw the vet yesterday and she said he wasnt suffering and we should get blood tests back today to hopefully know more about whats wrong with him.... she said his heart/lungs were ok... saw no masses.. and again that she didnt think he was in pain/suffering but he surely isnt right...

he is muh kitteh! with me all day long and he doesnt seem to feel comfortable being with anyone else right now..

he is weak and wobbly.. he fell over face forward today while eating his breakfast ;-\

i dont want to leave him for 12 days in his current condition.. ..without some biG change in his condition i worry that i might not get to sEE him again..

s0 here i am wondering if i should be with my cat or leave him and fulfill my obligations that ive agreed to doing on the playa and hope that he will be OK

..i know theres nothing i can really do for him other than be there but ugh.

id feel so baD to not be able to spend whatever time i can with him if he isnt improving..
id feel so bad to let my companions.. and friends down (and i guess myself) by not showing up to the burn to take the work people have been expecting me to do.

ugh ;-\
