I gotta admit MusicIsMyBoyfriend, it cracked me up when I saw you had listed wardrobe in your to-do list. Mainly because you and I and some other girls had that long fashion-related discussion in the "is wearing a skirt okay" thread.

That being said, picking out my final clothing choices is still on my list as well...

Coachella tix: purchased during presale, hopefully on their way
Hotel: Booked waaaay back in October. Mega discount. Working for hilton hotels rocks.
Flight tix: finally purchased 2 weeks ago. It was hard finding a flight home from LA that didn't leave at sunrise.
Rental car: Whoa, I just remembered I haven't done this yet! Thank god for this thread.
Lose 10 pounds: This will always be on my to-do list. Till the end of time.
Purchase magical mushrooms: Apparently they're growing as we speak.
Become more familiar with Coachella acts: This was humming right along until Neon Bible came out. I must regroup and continue pushing forward!

God I can't wait. Coachella is all I think about these days...

camping gear: got my single man tent ready!

clothing: do people really plan for this? I was hoping a bikini, and some skirts would cover it.


flight: I'm debating where to fly out of. Oh the joys of living in NWO. I can drive 8 hours and fly out of Minneapolis or fly out Tbay and spend over 9 hours flying...

money for food/misc rubbish: working on it; got myself a second job cleaning toilets to cover it. thats dedication.

transportation from LAX: was banking on meeting some nice people at the airport to carpool with, or taking the greyhound. we'll see which way the wind blows that day.

It was especially shitty on Sunday morning after St. Patrick's Day. Did I mention this is cleaning a BAR? Green barf everywhere. Its sad when a lecturing job at a University can't cover my costs. tsk tsk.

I need two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, and a whole multi colored collection of uppers, downers, laughers, screamers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that I need all that for the trip, but once you get into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worry me is the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and I know I'll get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.

seanbateman
04-16-2007, 10:01 AM
Have you ever actually done ether? It's not as intense as you might think it is. Kind of like DXM but a lot more dissasociative, and all the sounds and shapes get blurred, probably from the massive brain damage.

My point is, HST halgalgalg

To Do:

Finish (err, start) shopping. Need new jeans without holes in the snatch region. Need a digital camera. Need...everything.

Pack. Everything.

Betch slap my best friend for not buying tix before they sold out.

Figure out which of the eight friends I'm gonna drive up with. There are serious pros and cons I must weigh before this decision is made.

Tan the limbs.

Dye the roots.

A really hot, STD free dude during Bjork's set. No! Interpol's set. No!

Rob a bank. Preferably a Bank of America.

.:christine:.
04-17-2007, 07:46 PM
I forgot the part about robbing a bank.... not a bad idea :P

I'll be adding that to my list ;)

I'm also bringing bubbles... mostly to annoy people.... what? i work with children day-in and day-out... you develop a love of bubbles ;) so simple yet so much fun !!
