I’ve fallen off the planet and I’m crawling back to the interwebs.
All sorts of interesting things for the month of January have happened to this Steampunk!
Newyearschevia– Fabulous 2 night Burn to herald in the new year. We were able to burn the effigy from Myschevia (a burn ban prevented the burning of it in October).
See archived post: http://elaineturnerthewriter.com/2011/10/16/steampunk-burn-myschievia-burn/
I was invited to spend my Burn with Cuddle Camp. It was a wonderful time of cuddles to stay warm and meeting new people at this intense two day burn.
I’ve never been cold weather camping, so the radical self-reliance that I’m ‘used to’ was shifted into a new gear. How to stay warm, when I’m usually planning on how to stay cool.
It was a great thinking-out-of-the-box experience.
Flooding of the Domicile– on a personal note, my house gushed 25000 gallons of water…that’s enough water to fill a swimming pool…in my hallway. It was amazing. But I’m glad that’s over, and my floors are dry.
Clockwork Con– I missed it!!!! How could such a thing happen!!! Oh yes, refer to above Flooding of the Domicile.
Although, I know that my friend Ting Ting left his mark on many people there. If you were one of them, please oh please leave a comment.
A slew of other random, yet wonderful adventures befell this Steampunk in just a few short weeks this New Year…and our community is planning even more adventure to immerse yourselves in!
