Surprised no one on my flist has linked to this yet:

Steampunk Picnic in Golden Gate Park! Noon on Saturday!

The part of me that would LOVE an excuse to get all dressed up and go picnic in the park and play with my Shiny New Toy wants very much to go.

However, I'm invited to another party at the same time and have tickets to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy with the San Francisco Symphony that evening (plus a party to head to after the symphony...) so I'm not sure I'll manage it all. If I did, it would be a very, very packed day and I'm not so much about packed days, lately.

I realized, after being out with friends three days in a row last week, plus birthday things with etler on Saturday, that part of being an introvert means taking a little time to hide away from the world and just be with myself, no matter how many adventures I hope to have.

Hmmm... point. ;-)

I'd need to come up with some sort of vest, I think, but other than that, I've got some idea toward an outfit, provided the weather's not TOO warm.

So I could probably go for about an hour and a half -- not sure I have anything to wear, though. Thoughts?

Got any Dickens stuff?

That mixed with bits and bobs from other things should work. Just pick smome other aesthetic and mix it with Dickens- the browner side of burning man, post-apocalyptic, bit of tech... whatever.

I dunno — I mean, I've got a lovely Victorian coat (you saw it at Dickens Fair), and I've kind-of got a corset, but I'm not quite sure how to combine things into Steampunk. I'll contemplate, though.

introversion for me means i need lots of unstructured solitude. SO hard to accomplish in this town - shiny things everywhere :)

Picnic - I'll go if you go!

BBVD - anyone else I know going?
Have you heard if there's actually going to be dancing or not?

I have no idea if anyone else is going, nor do I know if there will be dancing. I'm assuming not... but it would be sort of fun to pull the kind of thing people did with Benny Goodman concerts way back when and dance in the aisles...

See you at the picnic, at least!

I've had one for about a year, actually... This one is an upgrade to my old one that has some super awesome features like a better image processor and image stabilization... which I found out that I actually need a bit of, given how I take pictures. :-P

But. Is TEH AWESOME. Am SUPER EXCITED!
