What I didn't know until just now is that Folk Fest just got moved to be a week earlier than usual, to be the third weekend in August. This makes sense, because so many people can't go to Fest because of when their college starts, and now even some Philly-area high schools, which have always traditionally started after Labor Day, are earlier. Except this is crazy for me because the Monday beforehand, when I'd usually go up to the Fest site, is now the DAY AFTER Institute.
So barring wedding- (Dear everyone: Please never get married in August. Thanks.) or employment-related reasons that might keep me from attending both events next year, it looks like my August of Awesomeness 2006 will be condensed into a two-week mid-August brain-breaking socially-overloaded emotion-fucking-with crazy-transition-ful Awesomeness Of A Lifetime, so titled because it may not be survivable.
