Read my mind, I dare you!

I am driving everyone around me ABSOLUTELY crazy.

I know this because I’ve managed to even irritate MYSELF.

And yet, I still persist.

You see, I’m fixated on the Pagan Bunny Burn and my level of organization has gone THROUGH THE ROOF!



Meal schedule?




Color-coded map with event notes?


I mean, really. . .who DOES THIS?

Today I cross referenced the schedule of activities to list the food events, times, and locations on our meal schedule so that we can see at a glance what’s happening foodwise at any given time.

It’s moments like these that Tejas can sit back, laugh, and THANK GOD he’s not in a relationship with me.

Because right now, I’m SUPER irritating.

The thing is, I DON’T REMEMBER the stuff I pack or where it is unless I write it down.

Do you know how many times I bought ratchet straps because I have no idea where my other ones are?

[They’ve been eaten by Tejas’ MotorBeast, btw.]

I’ve spent a lot of money getting ready for this burn.

I even bought a propane tabletop heater so that I can keep warm on the cold nights.

So you can imagine what happened when I mentioned to Tejas that light rains were expected for our campout and he said. . .

“Maybe we shouldn’t go. It’ll be cold and wet.”

I just stared at him.

And stared.

And dared him to read my mind.


Apparently there are some things that happen at the Bunny Burn.

The Zebra Rampage (a bar progressive in zebra costumes) is on my list of things to do.

I even have a zebra onesie to wear!

There are also crafts like making personal mandalas, bunny ears, and Mad Hatter hats.


Then there are activities like eating yellow sno cones and making s’mores.


I understand that I’m supposed to gift trinkets to my fellow campers.

Just like Gifting is a principle at Burning Man, so it also is at PBB.

So I bought some candies and toys to give out and I literally scoured my garage trying to find my Easter basket.

Which I did find!

So what will I be filling my basket with?

Emoticon gumballs

Fuzzy bunnies

Bunny face tattoos

Easter lollipops

Glitter necklaces

And bunny rubber “duckies”

So you can expect to see me hopping around PBB with my basket full of treats handing out gifts to all my neighbors!

Personally, I think Tejas could totally SCORE at PBB if he makes his wooden GlowForge bunny medallions.

They’re THE BOMB!

Cheap booze, here I come!

Tickets for Burning Man 2018: I, Robot are IN THE BAG.

They almost weren’t, however.

I had an American Express I wanted to use for the purchase but TICKETFLY doesn’t take AmEx.


Nevertheless, everything sorted itself out and come July, I will have my two tickets and my vehicle pass mailed to me.


I can’t believe I’m going ANOTHER YEAR!

This will be my FOURTH burn.

It’s addictive, you know.

All the art, and people, and dancing, and music, and community!

It’s shaping up to be so different than my first lonely burn.

But right now I’m planning my Pagan Bunny Burn.

And it looks like Tejas and I will be sipping some fine vintage Smart & Final Schooner Bay Light Rum and Sterling Dry Gin.

This makes me laugh, because at home, Tejas and I drink Hendrick’s Gin mixed with Fever Tree Tonic Water.

We’re quite the connoisseurs.

But when we camp?

Snobbery goes out the window and we opt for the cheapest booze there is.

No worries about hangovers, however.


I have Hangover Guardian – activated charcoal pills – which I take pre- and post-drinking to help absorb some of that nasty cheap alcohol.

Let’s just hope I have enough after the bunny burn to take care of myself at Burning Man!

Cheap booze, HERE I COME!


* UPDATE:  I couldn’t do it.  I had to buy the nice stuff for me to enjoy at the bunny burn.  Hendricks gin, Zaya rum, and some craft beers (to go with my bratwurst, naturally)!
