Sirius Rising 2011 - Turtle Fire

If you are reading this and have any pictures of Sirius RIsing 2011 that you can share with me, please click the message me link under my photo and send me a message. Sadly, I couldn't take many pics because my phone battery died.

What a great fire it was. Partway through the night they rebuilt it to add a gigantic vertical hollow log. The fire tending crew was awesome.

UPDATE: This is someone else's video of the main fire being lit on youtube.

Time Warner - Mail merge gone bad

A couple months back I switched the server to time warner to try and consolidate my internet access costs.

The account is registered under Elmwoodstrip.org as it is a business account. Today I got an email that started out like this:

Dear Dear rg Elmwood Strip.o,



Clearly the name was subjected to some Last Name, First Name Middle initial routine that really chopped it up. Its funny because the company names was listed as company and the same email also has my real name.

Smashed up and smoothed out

Ya so despite being the most ghetto repair ever, I think it fits the criteria of no more broken rocks on the stairs. As for the porch, it was still too wet to paint it so we had to just let it dry out.

The worst day ever

So instead of going on vacation we get a letter from the insurance company that they are going to cancel our insurance on the fucking nightmare rental property unless we paint the porch and patch the concrete.

I kept holding out because I thought I would have sold it by now. After scraping the wood its rotten because there was a wet rug sitting on it. The concrete pretty much had no option but crumble off and start over.

That house has been a money pit for me. If I could start over I would have just not lived in Buffalo when it came I to my life so that this moment would not happen.

Dinner for Mary's Birthday Last Night

Figured Joe's crab shack would be packed last night as it was grand opening so we went to red lobster instead. Their food always looks nice and tastes good, I just wish it was less salty.

One upping lobster mac and cheese

Believe it or not I don't line lobster Mac and cheese. Maybe I was just always missing the bacon? Sadly, I didn't get a chance to try it on my way back as I was already too stuffed.

Weekend at brushwood

We accidentally all went a weekend early to brushwood for Sirius rising. Luckily, (e:hodown) stayed because the event is next weekend and she would have missed her plane.

It was still fun to hang out and camp. We also got to swim a bit, although in a chlorinated pool. In the evening casey and I almost cooked ourselves to death in the hot tub because it was so cold walking back to camp wet that we didn't want to get out.

Man, I thought those chairs were uncomfortable for me. I can't imagine being as tall as (e:keithT) and trying to nap in one. It would kill my neck.

I am going to try and cut out of work early this week and use up some vacation time to attend a couple days of the festival and the fire this weekend.

I guess going a week early is better than going a week late.

One of the coolest parts was a vertical campfire in a hollow tree log with holes allowing viewing inside. I would have taken a picture but I no phone with me.

The overall best moment was dancing to the music of the drum circle barefoot by the campfire. The worst moment was trying to do a roundoff off of bench and missing my target.

I feel like this shrine/trash mound/artwork we found really sums it up.

Buffalo Horse Share

I would actually be more likely to do that then car share.
