i love lists. here are some of my favorite things:

giggling, painting, collage-making, riding in trains, listening to free music in nyc parks, laying on the beach, running, hiking, backpacking, memorizing the nyc subway map, going to shows with lauren in chicago, dressing like a frat boy, watching l-word marathons with v, belting out country music with the windows down on road trips through the south with ana, gossiping, dismantling oppression trainings, movie nights with the durham4, dancing, art museums, exhibit openings, multi-issue organizing, wine & cheese, reading in my hammock, documentary filmmaking, queers bashing back, direct action, www.queeringdiabetes.org, taking radical walking tours of new york city

Posted on October 24, 2007 at 9:00am 0 Comments

since you all are such *experts* in dealing with these connections, i'd…

Hi I just got tickets for Burning Man. I found you with a search for people here who have gone before. Am I nuts attempting this as a T1 pumper? I have the age factor too--50 is looming.
