11:18 am - Where the hell am I? Mid-east-west?
Football has the West Coast Offense. 'AA' hockey has the East Coast Hockey League. There's a Midwest Institute of Sexology.

The thing that America has always had is the wide open feeling. There's 3,537,441 square miles of room to stretch out in. This, of course, leads to the strange way we refer to things, as if their location makes things vastly different.

I say "as if," but really things are different on the west coast, in the south, and in New England. The ADF Groves show this in some very interesting ways. Even the Gate Opening, a standard among ADF Groves, varies from place to place, with different Groves using different hand-signs, energy-raising techniques, and chants.

That's really why festivals are so important to me: it creates a place were we can experience these things, learn about them, and get them done.

I'm slightly saddened that I can't make it out to Red Oak Grove's Fall Fest this weekend (If the link doesn't work, try later: ROG has the most unreliable server I've ever seen on the internet). I'd hoped I could make it, but things, as they will, came up, and I ended up being more broke this week than I ever have been before. Importantly, though: I'm not sure I'm ready for another festival today . . . I need some more time.

In other news, I'm going to be fixing the PSA Welcome Message for the Listserv, I think. It still notes that Jenica and Brian are the contacts for getting onto the list or solving problems.

I've decided that the list management is something I have to look further into. At the moment, I'm kinda stumbling blindly into it. It would be nice to maybe include something slightly more informative as a welcome message (not at all insinuating that rfunk did a poor job, but it is somewhat sanitized in some places). :)

So my lunch, today, will be spent pouring over the Listserv manuals trying to find out how to do this. (I admit, I get a bit of a thrill from learning things on my own.)

Ain't got no clue what yer talkin' bout.

I'm not sure whether Wild Hare's particular way of doing things (such as it is) can be blamed on our location. I reckon it has a fair bit more to do with the peculiar personalities we claim as our own. Except, of course, for any time you hear me say, "Well, I reckon we oughta open up them gates sometime soon." That's entirely due to Kansas and has nothing to do with my personality. Really.

Re: Ain't got no clue what yer talkin' bout.

My friend always wanted to do a "closing ritual" at a festival by gathering everyone in one place, taking out a shotgun, firing it into the sky, and shouting, "GIT!"
