Now there's an idea, offer up mom's spare bedroom and her services as chauffeur/tour guide/entertainment director to total strangers in exchange for your lodging.

I guess it's not that difficult to mistake "serving" for "reliant". After all they both contain seven letters four of which are identical.

I'm looking for a valid, full price ticket to this year's burn. Go look for me. Possibly in the section of the forums intended for this kind of thing...

Totally not the one. "Yeah, Burningman. I went once. Another notch on my Bucket List. Went swimming with the dolphins at New Age Aquarium, too. Jumped out of a plane, the whole enchilada. Hobbies? I don't have any hobbies. Too busy working on my bucket list. I bought it on-line from eBay..."

BLAMMOs is when some poor hippie wanders in trying to manifest a burn and some of the regulars BLAMMO! All over them.
