November 25, 2007Laura's done some great costuming work for me over the years. She's always been honest and upfront with me, and helpful in a pinch. I split my pants at Folsom once, 10 minutes before opening, and Laura rose to the occasion, a trooper with a needle. She's also one of the few people who makes me feel good about dancing.
February 25, 2006The only person I've ever met who could get away with having her own fanclub. Just that great.
September 11, 2005mmm coffee!
June 16, 2005She's brilliant, accomplished, and engaging. What's not to like?
February 15, 2005She's one of those people one instantly loves or hates, there's no halfway about it. In my case I fell in love with this spunky sexpot the first time I met her. I especially like her sense of humor and taste in music. If you don't know her, get to know her. If do you know her, get to know her better!
I am a very reserved, perhaps even private, person. I am not overly friendly. The whole notion of friendship espoused by the MySpace generation baffles me; to wit: If I do not know you in real life, if I have never met you face to face, or at least exchanged a few interesting emails above a certain length with you, do not expect me to add you to my friends list.

Tribe was down so long that the Burn was over twelve days ago, and I can only *today* take down the gone-to-burning-man thing.
If you need me, google this name. Or this name at yahoo, or gmail, or on AIM.
I love you all, and I'll miss tribe. But I'm starting to think that the logo is actually a little robot dude tearing his hair in frustration.
Looking for a few good Burners who know who Rick Astley is. Ping me for more details. Muahahahaa.Fri, March 21, 2008 - 12:29 PM permalink - 4 comments
So it looks like I'm going to Burning Man after all.Fri, August 10, 2007 - 1:37 PM permalink - 2 comments
I guess I shouldn't have griped so much about not going. I now have three weeks to get my shit together - good thing I camp Faire as much as I do, or this would be difficult.
Also, Dear Subconscious:
How did you know? Why have I found little caches of stuff around my apartment that I don't really recall buying, but that are perfect for Burning Man? The blinky lights, for instance. Or the dollar two-pack of single-ply TP rolls, or... read more
I'm standing in a parking lot in the late afternoon sunlight, shivering in the onslaught of a wind that brings a thick blanket of wet, cold, gray creeping over the nearby hills. In front of me is a four-year love affair in red-painted steel and safety glass: a triumph and a milestone, and yet now another milestone and a tragedy. I slide the key into the door lock one last time, turn it and hear the old familiar clatter as the tumblers give way. The door swings open and I sit, take out the tit... read moreMon, July 16, 2007 - 9:46 PM permalink - 3 comments
So this going through my friends list one by one and trying to remember who lives in the South Bay thing is for the birds. Especially since we all put "California" or "SF Bay Area" these days. :PSun, July 15, 2007 - 10:49 PM permalink - 0 comments
So we've started a new Tribe for South Bay Faire folk. This would be similar to the original goal of the SC-Faire list, with bimonthly pizza meetups and stuff like that. You know you want to join!
And look, here's a picture.
I graduated from UCSC with a BA in Theater Arts (emphasis in design) and a minor in Anthropology. I managed to flee Santa Cruz for the East side of the Hill, and spent a year working corporate AV for a high-tech company. I'm not working in IT. How far I have gone from my backstage degree.
I'm easing slowly into this thing that everyone calls "adult life", but it's a strange, difficult journey. I'm also a historical costumer, a semi professional model, and a social dancer. Sometimes, I act, but mostly I'm a theater technician. If you ever decide you'd like to hear how my studies and my hobbies intertwine, drop me a message.
Oh, and I have my own fanclub, after years of it being threatened: ladykalessia.tribe.net
