Very spot on list. Put me under the "having way more fun then they seem".

I may greet one with a blank stare but I'm so having a gas. It's just the aspergers.

I guess I can peg myself:

The Overcomplicator: Camping in the desert for 7 days just isn't hard enough, so he has to create a gigantic art project that he will deliver by himself by bike along Jungo Road. Has a project for every day — be nice to everyone, go around blindfolded, give Parot-card readings, fix someone else's art. Is sure he can win Burning Man if he tries hard enough.

I'm also overprepared. I recall debugging an art project (successfully) because I brought a portable oscilloscope. The spare gas cap I'm bringing will never be needed.

I was until about mid-July. And it wasn't from our discussion so much as I wasn't ready again. Closer, but far from ready. I'm planning to just finish the fucking thing and start using it. Maybe someday if it's awesome I'll bring it to Burning Man.

This year's over complication is to try and get there without a car. I'll be in Reno on Saturday, stay over night, then try to charm myself into someone's plush leather interior, hopefully arriving Sunday (yah! early arrival pass!)

ME ~ The Third Tier Burner ~ Has been for several years but not involved enough to be some epic vet. takes care of themselves, is involved in a theme camp, but doesn't think about burning man the whole year because they are more passionate about something else (for me that would be live music and jam bands). Feels a little guilty but knows they are OK. Appreciates what first tier burners do for them. Enjoys bike riding, and wearing just enough costume to not feel like they are in defaultia, but spends maybe a total of 5 minutes in front of the mirror.

The Contingency Plan: Packs light, but brings lots of raw materials which actually get used. Itemized lists on every bin, clothes in ziplocks. Has thought of at least three ways to fix any possible problem that might arise. Useful to camp with if you can find the appropriate documentation, completely mentally checked out once feet hit the playa surface. That's me.

Ok, that's it. From now on only 50% of the mods get to go to the burn. The rest stay home and fight spam. There will be straw's drawn next April 1st to see who goes and who stays. :mrgreen:

• The Barfly: If you have a bar, this person will keep people coming back to it, night after night. Always willing to spell you at bartending, always there when you need a smoke, always drunk enough to find everyone fascinating, will dance to any music, laugh at any joke, applaud any story. Will probably sleep on the couch even if their tent is ten feet away. This person is your bar's heartbeat.

• The Overprepared Neighbor: Forgot your can opener? Your toenail clippers? Your corkscrew? Here you go! No, you can keep it; I brought twenty.

• The Person Who's Having Way More Fun than They Seem to Be: Often the oldest person in their camp. Has had a hard life. You have trouble catching their name. You'll worry because they just sit at the end of the bar the whole time, drinking from a flask. but when you catch their eye they give you a giant shit-eating grin.

• The Philosopher: Prefers shots to cocktails. Often fails to notice hot nudity that's right next to them. Has rough mornings. Loses their voice.

• The Sparkle-pony: No camp is complete without some of these. Well costumed, and fun but offer not much in the way of usefulness as Sparkle Ponies. They hug, but don't do dishes, nap during dome setup or offer sunscreen but not help tear down. They're a bit like furniture you might get a chance to fuck.




I have been all of these at one point in time... haha changes each year.

Sparkel Bunnie: Not to be confused with a Sparkel pony; a beast that requires atention and care. The Sparkel bunnie is a free ranging anamal that has the inner bling set up and going all on their own. They look hot to trot but are not! they are on the look out for downers and gawkers and do not tolerate cheep pickup lines. They are quite prepared and often have a hipflask full o fun, and know where the funnest cuddle puddles are. While The Sparkel bunnie is endowed with a keen homming sense they may wander away from the house for days without returning. They have multipul burrows and bunnie mates all over the Playa and are sad only about the gumps who try to exploit them with booze and drugs (silly grumps, we are loaded!) Sparkel bunnies are natural givers and enjoy sharing, they take little and share it out just like Love.
oh and Sparkel Bunnies are 100% cuter than Sparkel Ponys, because it is self-cute not groomed cute.

Feel I was a bit The Acquisitor, a bit The Engineer (at least with lights), a lot The First-timer Whose Mind is Completely Blown the Whole Fucking time.

Working to be more The Font of Swag, more The Engineer, and a little The Overprepared Neighbor.

Was great, loved it, will return, it was much better than Cats. XD

Never have been one to fall into a niche, but maybe a combo of:
The Engineer
The First-timer Whose Mind is Completely Blown the Whole Fucking time
The Fish-to-water
The Overprepared Neighbor

All subject to change at any given moment :twisted:
