I'm now on a mission - to successfully barbecue an entire slab of bacon to perfection. WITHOUT fracking it up.

Some say it can't be done... but, as a burner, I say never say die...

I do it 3 lbs at a time usually, although I can do it with 4.
The trick is LOOONG tongs and the right grill, turning a whole slab in one fell swoop.

...you go to the local mall (in my case Arden Fair in Sacramento) and they have a large Barbie display at the Mattel store and you wonder when it will be over because you could really use those Barbies as part of your "art work" and then plead to them to give them to you when it is over because it is for an "art project"...

again demonstrating the finest of lines dividing Burner and O.C.D.

Not *just* when you think PBR is beer...

When you open the fridge, find Fat Tire, Heartland, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, some Grolsch, couple cans of Guiness, bottle of Racer 5, and half that Heiniken mini-keg (but no PBR) and tell the other half you gotta make a beer run 'cuz there's nothing in the fridge...

PBR isn't beer in the default world. It's only beer on the playa because you actually LIKE watery beer there.

When your colleague warns his 4 year old daughter not to show off her pink mermaid kickboard to you a the pool, since you might steal it and take it to Burning Man.

True story. Only I wouldn't steal it... just ask politely to borrow it, so fuck you Tim. :lol:

when all your friends get tired of hearing about your next art project, art car, theme camp idea,...

when you try to hug everyone you meet.

when your ordering tecate at the bar to spark nostalgia.

when you can say that for a couple days you were tired of boobs.

when you call most of your friends by their playa name, and you don't know what most of your friends real names are.

When it's not even October yet after the burn, and you already have circuit boards piled up and you're soldering like mad for next year. With.. more than 11 months to go.

Not only that, but for just your one circuit idea, you have 5 different models going on and have way overspent already..

..and not only that, your ADD mind is already ordering more things for more ideas and more ideas and so on and so forth.

Ugh. Not enough nights in the burn for all the cool light ideas I want to do..
