Pardon while I am to break character for moment, to make comment... spasibo...

While I don't usually stand back to back with many people, when it comes to AG I would stand back to back with Simon in this one 124.962%. I've known Andie for years, and I have absolutely no doubt her reason for leaving has nothing whatsoever to do with any sword-falling exercise... nothing whatsoever. Talking shit about her is, well... about the most unwise thing one could do in the presence of her friends.

Now returning to character... Is rumor presence of black heicopters and military fly-bys in year of this will to be at marked increase... is all relevant to earlier post of which we cannot to comment about. Do Svedoniya

I have reason to believe this is completely true.

There will be darkwads out there this year that have gang affiliations. They will be wandering the playa dressed all in black. Do Not call out to them, say they should get some lights, give them lights, or interact with them in any way. If you do, they will come up behind you and do a walk-by shooting on your bitch ass.

You have been warned.

Falling on a sword?

I have nothing to fall for, sir. I am darn proud of my work here, including my contributions to making the best that could be made of a tough situation when we saw this ticket thing coming down the pike. I was part of the team that created the system, part of the team that communicated when the tickets hit the fan, and I am confident our community will find its way through this painful birthing process as it dawns on us what it really means for this culture.

I've done this job for my entire adult life. As much as I love Burning Man, I'm ready to try something new, to make some room at the table for new talent and leadership, and to spend a little more time with my daughter while she's still a preschooler. I'm leaving to to focus on some other aspects of my intellectual person and take on some new challenges. Being Burning Man 24/7 has its ups and downs, and after 13 years I'm ready to pass the torch. Mystery solved.

Now stop turning my life story into a conspiracy theory. Mwah!

Can't even begin to tell you how much I'll miss ya. I hope that your next adventure, in addition to it being everything you could want and more, gives us opportunities to interact in some way from time to time. On the plus side, you'll hopefully have more opportunities for socialization both on and off the playa :)

Thanks T! Don't worry, I'll be around, and there will be a great touchstone at HQ for you and the other mods.

I hasten to add, I was voted Best Actress by the faculty of my high school. If I'm going to fall on a sword, you won't be mistaking it for the gentle sigh of a passing life era. The screams would be unmistakable.

I asked a question that's been batted around our group over here and so rather than let the speculation continue I came to the eplaya and asked it. And the eplaya did what it typically does, it provided an answer. (With some unwanted flak but it wouldn't be the eplaya without it, thanks Simon!)

AG, in my mind you've been the face of this event along with LH since I first heard of it. To hear you're leaving was a bit of a shock for a lot of us. The genuine concern was that you were doing what your heart told you to and were not being taken out by internal politics. Your explanation puts it all to rest. I wish you well in whatever you decide to do, and I will say whomever follows you has one hell of a big set of shoes to fill. 13 years in one place in this day and age? Damn!

Respectfully,

:lol:

Elorrum told me in the communal manifest thread that there will be a change to the name "Burning Mange". The theme: Mange. All campers must demonstrate mange at the Gate. Those who try to sneak in without mange will be ticketed in the amount of $1,000.00 (and given mange).

I think it's so the population cap can be dropped to 40K without anyone minding.

All right, that's it. I'm off to catch one of the many balding squirrels in my neighbourhood and rub it against my scalp for a while.

Not a rite of passage. A rite of writing. Or perhaps a rite of righting. A write-right rite.
