It may not be clear in this pic, but jalapeno poppers have been distirbuted, and they have laughed in the face of the tears that streamed down our faces.

Something like that, anyway.

Let that be a lesson to us all: don't soak peppers too much.

Weird trivia: the last picture of Saturday was taken at 7:06 PM. The first pic of Sunday was taken at 7:06 PM! And my first photography teacher was named Lovecraft! Eeek! Shocking!

That is 7:06 PM, CST, btw, not Playa time.

He looks calm, but inside, Matt's palate is screaming, "My god! I confess! Just make it stop!"

This is a large fuckin' person made out of metal. It symbolizes helpless wagon train passengers, who trekked their way across the desert in search of great wealth and rich land, only to find sand and stagecoach outlaws. Sad, innit?

In this pic, Lisa has mastered the "what the fuck is that?" look, which is essential to any Burning Man experience.

Big fuckin' blue thing..

"And then I sez, I sez, you betta just backthefuckUP, motherfucker! That's what I said."

The Kraken, blowing flame.

That's Nicola, visible past the spinning kinesthescope (sp.) at Camp Bollywood.

Bikin' on the Playa. The pink thing in the left corner is the top of the Ziploc bag I carry my camera in on the Playa. To keep the sand away. Hahahahahaha. "Keep the sand away." Priceless!
