I'm not avoiding you, I'm just lazy


Honest. Plus I've been traveling: New York City (where my Internet access is reached either via sugary beverages or via holding the computer JUST SO and hoping I can find an open wireless network) and upstate New York (where I get distracted by miniature golf very easily).

A few people have asked me for my Burning Man packing list, so I figure making it available to the public might be helpful. It appears behind the cut, so as to not take up the entirety of this page.
