3:56 pm - House work
I still won't be posting here much, not that I ever did, but since my life recently has been mostly consumed with house work I figured I'd post a link to the blog we're keeping for our house "remodeling" projects (the blog is mostly for keeping our parents informed): http://www.1532florida.com/blog/

6:23 pm - The anual Burningman post
If anyone is interested in coming to visit out on the playa, I'll once again be camping with Gigsville although this year I've broken off from Lahontan Korps in order to start putting together a new camp which is named Fabulous Disaster this year.

Gigsville is located in the double block on 4:00 between D and F. Our camp should be on the east side of the CarBBQ circle (ie look for the burnt out suburban). I'm not quite sure what the camp will actually look like from the front, but I'm sure it will be easy to figure out which one we are.

11:34 am - A bit delayed... I'm engaged
This actually happened back in May but I really haven't been doing much LJing recently, however the masses should be told: I'm now engaged to princessdiablo, see here for photos.

3:34 pm - Death Guild CDs?
I know, I know, I don't post anything about my life ever. This is no exception.

I failed to get VIP tickets this year to the Death Guild anniversary night, and thus did not come home with the compilation CDs for the first time since I started going. Did anyone on here get them, and if so would you be willing to lend them to me long enough to rip them?

12:02 pm - Once again, looking for a roommate
Well, after two months the new roommate is moving out. Apparently his budget can't really handle what I'm charging and a room in a friend's house recently opened up.

So, if anyone knows of someone looking for a room in SF starting in January please let me know. The major restrictions are that rent+utilities is going to be around $950/month, there are no uncaged pets allowed, and theres not much space for non-bedroom furniture.

1:31 pm - Burningman
I know its been a 6 months since my last update here, but I haven't been paying too much attention to LJ these days and you're not going to get a real update now either, besides that things continue to go reasonably well with my life.

Instead I'm just popping in to post my location at Burningman this year. princessdiablo will be with me again this year, as well as dellamorta, katieboyd, and drspooky for their first times. We'll once again be camped with Lahontan Korps within Gigsville, which this year will be on the Esplanade at 2:30. To find out camp, located Gigsville's gate at around 2:40 on the Esplanade, walk back to the CarBQ and look for the gigantic camouflage shade structure.

If you're going, feel free to post your location and I'll come visit if I can find you...

10:57 am - Almost home...
I've been traveling for 24 days now (LA->Pittsburgh->Floyd->Pittsburgh->Miami->Caribbean cruise->Miami) and will finally be getting home around midnight tonight. I'm definitely ready to be home in my own bed with all my stuff, but perhaps not yet ready to go back to the standard work schedule.

Anyway, this is also your notice that I haven't ready much of Livejournal since Christmas and probably won't be catching up on that much backlog, so if anything important has happened in your lives I most likely don't know about it...

* spent Thanksgiving week in Miami Beach with princessdiablo
* am now in Belfast for 10 days for "work"

2:15 pm - Sadly no earthquake for me
The best earthquake since I moved to CA and I managed to miss it. I was in a yoga class at the time (in fact, for the first time at princessdiablo's encouragement) so any shaking that occurred would be easily masked as muscle shakes. This makes me sad.

4:07 pm - Burning Man placement...
As the theme camp placements have all been announced its time to post my location and attempt to get on-playa camping locations for those that know them.

I'm camping with the Lahontan Korps in Gigsville again this year. Gigsville is occupying most of the double block from 3:30 to 4:00 and between C and E. Lahontan is going to be at approximately C and 3:45.

Gigsville should be relatively easy to locate, particularly at night as we'll once again have the Uberman to guide drunks home. Lahontan will be the giant camouflage structure adjacent to the Uberman.

So if you know where you're going to be this year feel free to post your location and arrival day and I'll attempt to swing by at some point

1:38 am - Social dynamics
I just bought a girl a drink to get rid of her.

I'm not sure if she was a prostitute, just really liked me in her drunken state, or was really desperate for another drink, but $3 seemed like a bargain at the time.

2:55 pm - Back from the beach
I've returned to the west coast. I probably won't catch up on LJ as I haven't read it since the 24th, and thats an awful lot of entries I see floating around.

Also, I seem to have acquired a tan.

12:47 pm - The hair colors continue
To continue documenting my hair color, on Saturday I bleached out the remaining pinkish purple, resulting in bright cotton candy pink and bleached blond. I was very tempted to leave it that way for the beach, but plans ended up winning and I used up a bottle of SpecialFX Blue Mayhem. I had two shades of blue on my shelf and thought that was the one that had come out better before, but I was wrong. So last night I covered it over with Blue Velvet and everything is better. There are now parts of my hair that are almost blue-black, but the top is pretty damned vibrant.

6:32 pm - Sewing machine update
I think I've found a machine on craigslist that will meet my needs and the price seems reasonable. Anyone have any particular comments on http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/hsh/329294880.html ?

3:04 pm - Expert advice needed: sewing machines
While I may be fairly knowledgeable about various computer, power tool, and motorcycle brands/models and their various strengths and weaknesses, I know nothing about that for sewing machines. This is relevant since I need to purchase a sewing machine in the next month or so if I'm going to have any hope of completing my Burningman projects for this year.

Since there are folks on that I believe possess the knowledge I need in this process, I figured I'd make this post. I need to purchase a sewing machine (preferably used) and it doesn't need to have any fancy options. What I do need from it is:

- sturdiness and reliability
- reasonably easy to get replacement parts, and preferably easy to make repairs myself
- can handle thick fabrics. Needs to at least handle denim, duck, and canvas. Preferably it could also handle somewhat thin (6-8oz) leather, but I know that would be asking a lot
- cost < $400

Any expert advice would be appreciated. An expert willing to help me go through craiglist adds (or go to stores that would sell used machines) would be really appreciated...

10:09 am - Looking for a housemate
Well, I'm ready to start my looking for someone to rent the other bedroom in my apartment. If you're looking for a place or know someone that is feel free to contact me. I'm not in a big rush but would like to have someone lined up to move in by the end of May. I've put a full (ie overly long) writeup at http://amp.digitalfreaks.org/rental.txt but here are the quick details:

- Rent is $730/month + utilities (~$60-100/month depending on usage)
- Move in cost is first months rent and an equal deposit
- Rent is for one unfurnished bedroom (~10x12 plus closet), the house is otherwise fully equipped
- The house is a ~850sqft 2BR/1BA townhouse in the lower Haight with a private yard
- No non-caged pets
- Street parking only

(The rent may be slightly negotiable for a suitably compatible roommate)

Copied from shibakiei:

"Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in or curious about - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite book. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will post the pictures as a later entry when I have a chance to do so. Feel free to make your requests as mundane or creative as you like!"

5:40 pm - Watch woes
If most of you saw me today, you would notice nothing unusual unless you watched me for a while, in which case you would catch me repeatedly attempting to check the time on a wrist with no watch. I like my sports watches, and have been switching between various Timex Ironman style watches for the last decade. While the watches themselves have proven to stand up to the physical trauma that my life exerts on them, the bands do not last that well. Of the previous two I had the older one is still running just fine, but its doing so stuck to my motorcycle (and thus living outside) with an elastic band. The one after that was the only one I've managed to actually harm by means of a street hockey incident in which it acted as body armor.

My current one is less than two years old, but around two months ago the little sliding rectangle used to secure the excess band broke off, and yesterday I noticed that the main band was splitting. This wouldn't suck all that much, except that decent replacement bands don't seem to fit on these watches, and I've never been able to find actual replacement bands. Thus, I am annoyed, and timeless.
