I'm actually looking forward to being a mean old lady. I think I'll be good at it.
Reno story: My brother, who is a teeny bit vain (he's allowed, he's a good-looking kid) cultivated his playa hair all week. By the time we left, it was all in magnificent anime-guy spikes. We were stuffing our faces at the Atlantis buffet when one of the waiters, quite spiky of head himself, came up and said "Man, I gotta ask -- how did you get your hair to do that?" Bro said, "Well, to start you gotta spend a week at Burning Man." The waiter was a little mystified, but allowed himself to be explained at. Maybe we'll see him next year.
