stayed up too late last night (thanks, sven!). tired. sticky. amelia is still a hassle. blah blah blah. so let's talk about burning man, because that was so much more fun! :)

dan is much more on the ball than i am and already has photos up! he also sends a link to the sf gate burning man 2003 photos as well as to a fairly good sf gate opinion piece which contains the most succinct reason why i wanted to go and was glad i went:
"What [Burning Man] is, really, is 30,000 people who erect this bizarre gorgeous temporary fully functional art-filled dust-drunk city in the middle of nowhere sans money sans phones sans work sans rules and tear it all down a week later, and that, in effect, is what makes it so gorgeous and strange."
(peter, being from s.f., also sent the gate links along.)

so i retyped everyone's contact info and thought it might be a good excuse to list the trip's cast of characters so that it doesn't get confusing later (though i suspect confusion will ensue despite the precautions).

imagine 8 people completely randomly camping next to each other in a place known as "hushville" (repeat after me: no generators, no loud music, clean up after yourself) and discovering that they're actually quite well-suited to each other. they are for the most part campers who came alone, many are here for the first time and there seems to be a heavy northwest bias. all three girls are redheads. another three of them speak the same amount of meager first-year russian. then add a couple of small and friendly nearby camps like the civilized explorers and kamp kalamazoo, and it became a surprisingly homey corner of the playa to return to after being out all night.

our cast of characters includes the members of our ad-hoc camp (joe, richard, rachel, ron, peter, monica, dan, and me) as well as the guys from kamp kalamazoo (dave, tim & steve).

there will be a quiz later. :)
