Not very versatile though (I can't even commit to a tattoo).

Neither can I.
No ink, no piercings. I still enjoy entertaining the thought of dyeing my hair bright orange or shocking pink though.

My body is so altered that I sorta, well, not sneer, but shake my head in whatever, when people talk about peircings and tattoos.

Bought a pound of almonds and two oven mitts. Oh, and 8 sharpies for 7.49. Maybe I should have bought more...

Anyway, they are on sale in Walgreens...

Seems long overdue for some of us engineer-types to band together and construct some sort of badass all-terrain personal conveyance. iRobot has some cool chairs that balance on their wheels and stand up, etc...something like that. With a flamethrower.

I sigh because I want all sorts of cool things. If I could afford it I'd have a chair that could go up and down stairs and a beach chair. And that's before we get to any burner-type mods...

Yeah, I guess the 51 other weeks of the year would figure a little more prominently.

The problem is I'd only trust myself with burner-level engineering, you need experts to get you up stairs without ending up at the bottom upside down :(

finally making some progress...mostly

the robe lining and outershell are both ready to be attached tonight...and then only the other vinyl piece, wiring run through, and hemming is left. I think I can finish it on Wed when I take my free day off. (WOO HOO!!! My job is pretty nice sometimes!!)

BF pre-ordered some stuff from Home Depot...we pre-ordered some stuff from REI over the weekend...all done ordering from Amazon and all items should be here on Thursday.

Still need to tie dye some items tonight or tomorrow and sort out the outfits into bags...and possibly buy a new suitcase (hoping I won't have to).

Spray painted a pair of comfy old sneakers a chrome silver and added some blue glitter. Now I'll have comfort AND style going for me.

A second dying with better dye as suggested by TG had better results.

Departure in 25 1/2 hours.

My living room has officially exploded. Let's see, today I duct taped the vents in my tent, wrapped my cooler in mylar, grouped my stuff into Camelbak items, in the tent items, and items that need to stay in bins. OH! And the big one, I found a ride there and back that can haul all my stuff including the beach cruiser!!!

woohoo!!!!!!! I'm getting super excited... :D

Printed out my boarding passes, packed everything, still kinda doing last minute packing, got all my important documents (ticket, boarding passes, car insurance) and put them in a manila folder which will be on me at all times throughout the traveling portion and then safely secured somewhere in my moms house.

SO PUMPED

I LEAVE IN 4 HOURS

Corn tortillas... if you're cooking meals for multiples, split the pack into smaller serving size packages and seal them as tightly as possible. For one person, where you need to get out just a few? Mmmm, double bag them and don't let the cooler water get into them whatever you do.

Thanks AntiM, there are 90 of them and I only need them for our camp dinner on Friday. I was going to put them in a plastic bin I got to put into the cooler and keep stuff dry. It sounds like that could work. There is already moisture in the bags though. Should I air them out before packing in cooler?

On another note, something completely weird happened at Costco yesterday:

I remember waiting for a car to pull out from a parking space, then I pulled in and parked my artcar, put the club on my steering wheel and went in to do my shopping. Came back an hour later and WTF? My car was in the parking space in front of where I'd put it, the emergency break was off and the gear was in Neutral! Did someone "joy ride" the VainVan? Nothing was taken (and there was some parking money, a phone charge, a really fancy rhinestone crown in the car.) It seems nothing was touched but the car was carefully moved. WHY? This kept me tossing and turning until 2am last night trying to understand who would do such a creepy thing?
