In Your Own Words..................

...Allright. I`ve seen some of those made up words that you are trying to pass off on that "other' thread describing Burning Man.

Here`s your chance to show everybody how smart you are by
posting your own words that describe Burning Man or anything else.

Please give the word, then use it in a sentence :


Dumassity.
Sometimes I am shocked, captivated, and held spellbound
by my stupendous dumassity.

volokkos (v--lock osss)

referring to the experience of seeing too many utterly impossible things at once. It comes from the sound your brain makes when it's had enough

as a noun...

"It's been volokkos the whole time I've been here."

as a verb

"They volokked the whole Esplanade"


Vert enough for ya?

oh now that's just creepy, fire elf--not vollocky, but creepy.

I had that sig line two sig lines ago

it's siglinedipity.

okay, I'll refrain from.........something, I'm not quite sure yet, but when I get to it, I'll refrain from it--and you'll be the first to know.

on account of the siglinedipity and all...


ooh, I think that was it.

No, you should have signed up JesusfuckingChrist.

So I guess you want to make me go through the effort of contacting the company in question over this? Not going to happen. Since you obviously dont know how to reply to PM's then I can just tell you right here that we have your IP addr traced back to your service provider. Its not that we will block you, no, that would be too easy and not very creative.

Instead we are contacting your provider over your continued abuse of thier system, might be a long shot, but I am hoping they pull your access. If not, its leverage to give us your name and mailing address.

Have a nice day.

Dustardation: The inherint inability to remember anything you're supposed to be doing while out on the playa. Often accompanied by wandering around hopelessly whilst trying to locate your camp. This occurs whether or not you're suffering brain damage from your "activities" the night before.

I was supposed to go to the Meet and Greet, but thanks to my dustardation I didn't even realize it was thursday.
