Boobs, sweat, Burning Man

August 15, 2016

A dear readers asks: “Gonna get personal here. Did you ever go topless at Burning Man? Did you have problems from boob sweat + playa?”

I couldn’t recall any sort of issue, so I asked friends. Overwhelming consensus is that since it’s so dry out there, boob sweat isn’t an issue. Here in the South, most of the year we’re getting hugged by a REALLY sweaty person who won’t let go. You can sit still under the shade with a fan, and you’re still gonna be wet from the  humidity.

Second overwhelming response is to use deodorant, to prevent sweating and chafing under the breasts, in the groin area, etc.  Pretty much the same ingredients as Monistat and other anti-chafing products, just without the targeted marketing and pink tax.

I’m basically a Pstyle missionary.  I keep one on me, one in my tent next to the peejug. I consider it a “must-have” for Burning Man, other burns, gross music venues with no toilet seats, outfits that I don’t want to remove completely so I can pee, etc.

She asks, “What do you do with pstyle while it’s in your bag? Put it in a ziplock? Does it get gross?”

The belt I made has a zipper pocket just for the Pstyle. Many women keep it in a ziplock bag with wet wipes. I don’t, just shake after use, it dries instantly, the end. It’s never gotten gross – when I’m menstruating the blood might need to get wiped off, doesn’t always shake right off like urine, but that’s about it. Doesn’t smell, doesn’t make the fabric of the pockets it’s in smell. The most likely thing to end up smelling is your peejug.

I have overflowed the Pstyle when I didn’t have it placed correctly and/or wasn’t paying attention. Practice in the shower, over your toilet at home, off your back deck, until you figure out where it needs to go against your body and how you need to stand. I have also definitely overflowed my peejug, so keep it empty. I’ve also  knocked it over, so keep the lid screwed on at all times!!

I recommend this water bottle for a peejug:

The paper handle is very nice for the emptying trips. I also like to paint it, cover it with duct tape, etc. so it’s not like, totally obvious you’re carrying around a bunch of pee.

DON’T USE JUGS THAT HELD JUICE OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN WATER. That is a guaranteed odor.

Goodwill round 2

April 16, 2010

To be clear, if you click on the photos it should take you to the item’s auction @ shopgoodwill.org – ok, it will take you to the photo of the time, but you can figure it out from there, right?

Nine old keys…24 bids, over a hundred dollars.

I’d love to attach this mic to a megaphone:

Classiest pee jar EVAH!

Makes me want to smoke:

Suspended from a wrist strap, it has pockets for change, as well as clip for holding cigarettes. Has flip up mirror, and what appears to be a space for that special picture of loved one.

For those days when you’re tired of dry rations, stare at this like Bugs Bunny adrift with a hot dog:

Here’s a size 28 white gown!

Camp lounging, light and breezy but shading your delicate skin from the sun:

I might think about these boots:

At night, I’m definitely going to go for warmth and comfort, more than fashion (like last year – my boots were also comfortable, but didn’t fit by the end of the week). Speaking of staying warm:

YOU KILLED MY FATHER PREPARE TO DIE:

These could go with the epees, or be made into some wicked scary masks

I wonder if anybody’s ever walked around in full-on scuba gear? Be hot as hell, during the day, but funny.

Thunderdome costume base:

Tent!

Except I can’t find anything about it online…but it looks alright.

I’d get this for my pirate ship!:
