Well, its a surprise because I haven't decided yet what I want to part with :)

In any case, I promise to not send a used glowstick or playa dust covered cookie.

I merely replied, as usual, to make a smart-ass remark. I feel kinda weird about replying to get a gift.

Ok, I got enough people to 'gift' now. There's one extra I'm going to accomodate since my instructions weren't very clear.

I'll be doing this as often as I can, and I fully encourage anyone else to copy the "idea" if you wanna call it that.

>Fuzzy tube thingamagigs

they're cool.

i had two of them given to me on the playa. they're swell.

they're really comfy...and really warm. i played with one as a skirt, but i am not the most accomplished skirt wearer, and it slid down, and i had to hike it up alot. no matter how much i abused it, the thing shrank right back into a scarf.

i gave both of them away, too.

gotta find more for next year. to play with and gift...

You know what's really weird about those things, I got one for christmas about 2 years ago and stuck it in my bag at the last minute thinking it would be a good burningman item, and then someone was giving out like 30,000 of them as gifts, but I didn't get one, probably because I was wearing one already, I noticed mine was a little larger though, so I am not sure if it was the same person making them.
I took the road less traveled, and now I would like to go back and find the paved one.

I don't know anyone named art, but I read somewhere on the eplaya that he's having a party on the 4th. Try there.

I'm sad :( because I PM'ed and I've heard nothing. Do you suppose the irony of "Where's my fucking gift was lost?"
