That one time at Womp Camp

Well tomorrow morning we set out on our 3 day trek down to Burning Man.
To say I am excited is an understatement.
We have lots of Doctor Who audio dramas and music for the trip and just got the last of our foods and gear and our old bikes are ready. Once we decided to go we got set and ready and it's cost lots (eep. trying not to think about it) of $$...but just this once we are going to go and have a great time. I am feeling really good lately, and just for once in a very long time we are going to go and see something new, cross it off the old "bucket list" and go be among the mad artists for a week.

Later taters...



I grew up watching Mork & Mindy and watching Robin Williams in films and his comedy routines. I was really hit unusually hard by hearing the news that he took his own life, but not because of how much laughter he brought to my life. More because of how he died. You see, I'm married to someone who suffers from depression sometimes and have seen all to well how it can take over your life and effect how you think and feel about everything. Life looks different. You can't just "snap out of it" or think about something else or distract's not something I can even describe. Having not really experienced it myself (and being rather overly cheery myself most days) I really feel for people when they're in the depths of things. I wish Robin Williams had had someone there to talk him down and maybe be able to bring him's so sad to see such a talented life end. But I can see how it could happen.
So sad.

But on a much happier is…

Well hooray

Well we're back from camping at the music festival. We had a fabulous time. The music was top notch. It rained, but then it all dried up and the weather was great. No mosquitoes either...nice. I ended up catching bronchitis when I got back so I've been taking it easy here at home...may have done a bit too much, but it was great to get away with friends and just be normal. My friend Carrie kept doing impromptu diva photo shoots with us all so there are some goofy pictures. :)
It was so great to do a normal summer thing.

The part STILL isn't here for our Delica...but I'm hoping it will be fixed soon. The thing about owning a cool weird japanese vehicle is it takes cool weird japanese parts...that had to come all the way from Japan. Sheesh. J needs it for a job in 2 weeks so I'm crossing my fingers and toes that it'll be here by then. It's our camping van and J's gear hauling van so we need it back. It's been 3 weeks now...

I'm starting to scheme …
