Don’t go to Burning Man.

It’s an addiction.

Next chance to get my fix: PDF.

For some reason, I thought Monday was a holiday in Canada as well but it’s the Monday before. So I’m just going to drive to PHL fairly early and work from the lounge…

The return of Ceiling Cat

Ceiling Cat finally made it to Montréal from California on Caturday, December 20. I got up on Sunday the 21st and needed something to do as a distraction from the rest of my life. Then I spotted Him, still packed flat and wrapped up in an old bedsheet. There was to be a Solstice celebration that evening in NDG Park with lanterns. Perfect:

Trailer Cat

I spent all day building, then We rode out during the first blizzard of the winter and had fun solsticing.

Thanks to jbailey for getting him here from and for taking the photo above!

Building-of photos here, including how he looked before folding.

Church of Ceiling Cat photos & words

Here are all the Church of Ceiling Cat photos I know of. I was planning to take more on Sunday night, but we ended up taking everything down on Sunday morning.

And here are the words…

Ceiling cat, we has it.

Last week was extremely busy – prepared for the Church of Ceiling Cat, which I am building at that thing in the desert this year, helped other people from our camp with their preparations, did most of a reasonable week’s work for my employer, and slept (a bit.) The Church is pretty well ready to go – if you happen to be burning this year, come visit at 8:45 and Dart. If not, feel free to read our camp’s blog but be warned that the content may be highly – um – colourful.

BTW: I’ll have no email access from Sunday until September 2, and I’ve been too busy to read any of your blogs since I got here…

So the plan is to head to SFO and build the Church of Ceiling Cat, which will be a large geodesic dome with a drop ceiling and of course our deity. I’m not sure if this will work. I’ve spent a lot of time planning, but some kinds of plans just can’t be made remotely in advance and I won’t know if everything’s going to work until it does. Or not. Ordinarily this would be no problem, but I’ve told enough people about the Church (and put in enough time and money already) that I feel like I have to make it happen. So it will :) KayOS told me he feels the same way about his poutine-in-the-desert plans – his camp has been repurposed to be the Black Rock Poutine Company.

If you’re burning this year, come and see us: 9:00 and D. Also stop by for poutine at 7:15 and C.
