i don't even know where to start! i guess i'll work my way backwards.... :D

i spent yesterday recovering from the party on saturday, which kept us busy all day long. we went to powell's technical books to pick up some of their combustible/flammable stickers for burning man only to find they close early on sundays, so we hopped back to powell's to pick up a good journal to take with me and a booklight.

saturday night was the party, of course. we spent the day buying day-of items and preparing them. i used the itunes music store for the first time to hastily compile a "burning mix" cd to play during the party. worked like a charm after the "authorization" issue was worked out (i had bought them on one computer but had to burn them on another). i was so busy it felt like i didn't actually spend much time with the guests, but it was really nice to see rob again & meet mel! and it was the first time i had seen susan since we were in san francisco together. the roof is a stunning place to have a party as the sun sets; it's really a shame one can't reserve the grill, though.

not that we suffered too badly: there was lots of food! michael and i started with a baseline of chips, drinks, kabobs, sausages, rosemary potatoes, grilled onions, bell peppers, and smores. in addition, john came with a killer pasta salad (and i don't even like pasta salad!), susan came with chicken sausages & long poppyseed rolls, steve & cindy donated chips and 7-layer dip, and philip came with the infamous lemonade pie (mmmm: creamy! tart!). we have soooooo much food leftover we won't have to buy groceries for a week (and we'll have corn & blackberry poundcake every day!). brennan is to be commended for grilling to perfection all night long despite the obstacles of wind, other grillers, and darkness (thanks also to the assistance of cindy & steve!).

some donated other party stuff or to the burning man cause, too: thanks goes to rob & mel who brought a camp chair, a small cooler, a feathered mask, a skull bolo, cookies, beer, and the "black & red icon" tape; philip for the first aid kit, batteries, and the "wanderlust" cd; john who lent a large cooler; steve & cindy who brought another camp chair, 8 folding chairs, 4 card tables, flowers, and a flashlight when we needed one; linda who was only here long enough to drop off her camp chair contribution before she had to go home with a raging headache; steve & leslie who brought wine, a hat and lotion; and to susan for bringing a small bag of tiny tomatoes from her garden.

even earlier in the day we had gone blackberry picking w/ mila, john & phillip on sauvie island. next time we decided we would bring a ladder and just go straight for the wild blackberry bushes bordering the farm, which were ripe, plentiful, and tasty. the ones we were able to gather weren't bad, mind you, and i froze half of them.
