I really, really appreciate all of the people who are trying to remain positive and helpful, even though I'm sure it SUCKS to not have been awarded a ticket.
It sucks to be planning your fifth registered theme camp, trying to build another art car, the root beer / absinthe saloon, the viewing structures, blahblahblah all over again, only to discover that this time, by way of limiting inconvenience to burners, NONE OF US HAVE TICKETS YET whereas every previous year, we may not have all paid the same price but ALL OF US HAD TICKETS ALREADY. Hey, wow, that really solves a lot of fucking problems for us, doesn't it? 100% of my camp got rejected!!
It also disheartening to read people's 'Well, sucks to be you but I got mine so quit whining or don't go' posts on the e-playa when I'm trying to determine whether it's even worth distilling x motherfucking gallons of absinthe to give away again this year. I really, really, really don't come out here and trash the BMorg or the event. Normally, I'm professor positive.
This year I feel like saying "Fuck it" and maybe pretending to be a virgin burner all week so I can hang on on other people's art and score lots of free shit.
