I have so many people to thank.
First, Jungle-fuckin-smacks. You made my trip happen. Without you, I would have been sitting at home all week watching the live stream. You made me be awesome instead of lame and I love you so much. Cant wait to see you and the girl in April.
My Parents, TK and her Stallion. Thanks for carrying in my stuff in your trailer, reminding me to put on sunscrean, letting me explore, helping set up my tent, bringing the dye shop, laughing with me, laughing at me. Just thanks. You guys are so sweet and I am so grateful that you wanted to share your experience with me.
Jonsi, thank you for opening your home to me. It was the perfect way to start and end my trip. You are so kind. Sadie, you were instantly on my "cool as heck" list when you got me iced coffee, and the same to Adam when you layed in the back yard with me and talked about everything we could think of. I love your entire family, and I'll see you soon.
BDC, holy shit. Best village ever. I met so many great people, and enjoyed the shit out of everybody. Doc, thanks putting in the effort to help all of us nimrods have a great burn. Day spa guys (and gal), thanks for letting me help with painting nails and hand massages. Thanks to everybody who brought food and drinks, made pancakes, made lumpia, painted boobes, let me paint their boobies (gosh, I love boobies). There aren't enough words for how awesome BDC is.
The Dye Shop gang. There was drama, but thank God it wasn't mine so I didnt give a shit. You guys were so much fun. Special thanks to tinker for letting me use her awesome shade and being so uplifting and helpful, Monty for all of the wonderful hugs, and Angela for bringing baby Liam. The CRAZY line at Dye with Dignity on monday was awesome and I was so mother effing proud. Go team.
My neighbors at the Dread Pirate Barbie. Julie, GraiDawg, Puppy, Archie, Alex, Pat, Misa, and Knowmad. I would have been lost wandering the playa without you guys. You were so entertaining and honest to goodness the best neighbors anybody could ask for. My dear friend, thanks for keeping my sparkle to a minimum. Grai, thanks for purposefully rolling a seven so we could do a body shot. My belly button will never be the same.
Misa, you are the sexiest woman I've ever met, and I love you so much. Thanks for hugging me at the Temple burn and not making me feel like a sissy for crying. That goes to Pat and Alex too.
Mike deserves mad props for being so quietly helpful. You gracefully put up with a group of birgins, and were so willing to let us explore and to turn us around when we started to act like nimrods.
Genius, thanks for my post card. Its so cool, and definitely getting framed. Sorry we didnt make it to your performace at Rocky Horror. I bet it was awesome, and you're the greatest.
Aunti M and Larry, thanks for the delicious cookies and letting me explore your awesome camp set up. I learned a few cool tips and tricks for next year. Also, thanks for having frenchie camped with you. That guy was so much fun.
Yiggi for letting me squeeze his bum.
Mooney for the AWESOME fire show and fabulous drink. Also for letting us use your carport as a hangout spot.
Thanks to the Booty Mashups folks at Root Society, I have never danced harder in my life. Thanks to the hot dog guy that fed me when I was wandering deep playa with Adam. Thanks to Adam for wandering with me.
The porta-potty-pigs on 4. You guys were amazing. I waited for potty 5 or 6 every time. Also thanks to everybody who didnt hover. Not sitting on your piss was awesome.
I know I've got to be forgetting somebody, so i'll probably be adding more. But for now...thanks.
