Yesterday I got to wander out into the desert with Addy, Chris, Josh, Tish, and the rest of the mad people and their soundsystems who were 7 miles off the 15 before Zzyzx. 110F in the sun, a few miles of ridiculously deep gravel which ate cars for lunch, yours truely impersonating Peter Solberg in his subaru, and it's a desert party with all the trappings.

To recuperate from the multi-day no-sleep exuberance that a true desert party entails, I spent most of last night and today asleep, until I woke up to finish grading stuff for Bio5B. Yes, terribly exciting, no?
