I'm watching the inbox on my phone like a hawk.

I bet every one of us gets our tickets. In fact, I bet that when all is said and done, very few, if any, won't get tickets.

I couldn't take it anymore. Sorry everyone, I wanted to take my chances with everyone else, but I caved in and made some calls.

I just got off the phone with the provost of Major League Baseball. He confirmed with the Kremlin offices that the matter had been taken care of, and I was bumped up to order number 937.

I suppose such action is not very burner of me, but I think that I can make it up to the community. I have instructed my valet to begin work an hour early in order to clean MOOP outside of camp. I trust that this should suffice.

Hate to break it to you, but if it didn't go through Matrushka, you've been scammed.

While we're on the subject of Rocky references, can we all agree that Sue is to blame for all the ticket troubles?

My associates in the Illuminati aren't going to take kindly to your actions... As I type this, Dan Brown is preparing a novel about you and your line jumping... MICHAEL BAY will be directing the movie version...

I almost got fired at work today for checking my personal email once every minute! ARGH! Additionally, my 13-year-old daughter was waiting today to see if she got a part in a local theater production. She kept checking the website and facebooking with all of her little theater friends. It was all I could do, after listening to her angst all evening, not to chime in and tell her, "shut up you little brat, I have been waiting for two days to find out if I got my burning man tickets!" Good thing I refrained. After all, I'm a good mother. :-)
P.S. Thanks to the wonderful person who posted the videos above. They broke the tension!

Don't get fired! You need your paycheck to buy battery-operated lights shaped like pineapples, and vacuum-sealed salmon! It adds up. :)

For our camp it's pink flamingo lights. The ones we had last year were toasted by the playa. And bacon. Lots of bacon.

My God, you're right! There IS NO provost of Major League Baseball - it is all a conspiracy...

I am on the phone with Matrushka now. I didn't want to go this route - everything is so complex with her. There are plans within plans within plans. Apparently the Dan Brown novel is actually an adaptation of the Michael Bay movie - but it can't be published yet as the real world events which it is based on are still waiting to happen.

It has all been clarified. My ticket is being safely held in a box, along with blueprints for the reactor, which is hidden behind the blank face of the man. I just have to get there before it goes up in flames. There should be no problem once I explain everything to the gate - unless they too work for the Tres.
