Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Easy!

I (well, "we", "The Dude" isn't on these Forums as of yet but I'm sure he'll join soon enough) want to party all week and meet amazing people of course. Nothing like warm sun, good drinks, great conversation...and music to dance to all night.

(Not to mention the Opp to let loose my inner deviant personally...)

Thanks for the warm welcome(s).

Really?

Cool!

And I see from your Profile you're from the L.A. Area like me, yes? : )

Let's keep in touch, (?) maybe we could meet up before/at BM; I was noticing that there is an L.A. Burn Group in the Usergroups area, I've joined their FB Page for updates...

Woot! Newbies! Welcome to Eplaya. Savanah is a good one to stalk, she knows what she's talking about. Read read read, practice building some shade and have fun! Garage sales and thrift stores are your friends.

Welcome.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.
