the latest plan

So as I'm sitting around, reading about people's plans for Burning Man and thinking how cool it sounds if it wasn't for the size, I find myself toying with the idea of organizing my own damn event. I imagine the difficult thing to do would be to balance size with cost. I might be able to come up with the seed money from... well, lets just say I might have some seed money and leave it at that. Granted, there are extra logistical problems that arise from having an outdoor/camping venue rather than an indoor/hotel venue, but they are obviously surmountable or there wouldn't be the proliferation of festivals there seems to be.

Hmm and hmm. Certainly bears continued cogitation, I think. Plus I'm always much happier organizing this sort of thing than just attending, anyway. All about having a role, I can do damn near anything as long as I have a role to justify it.

score!

Just got off the phone with my boss. I'd scheduled a chat (he's in Fresno) because the stress of my current position is deleteriously affecting my health. Turns out we are entirely in concert as to what the best plan of action is - and he's got his boss working on greasing the wheels. If there is any portion of the universe smiling on me, I may get my "please let me work with numbers not people!" wish in the not too distant future.

Soggy Man? Dripping Man?

I don't know if I'm totally into the title, but there's certainly been a ground-swell of interest. On the other hand, it'll get called what it gets called. Like cats, there's not much you can do when the universe speaks.
