Thank you Barbie. I'll be as usual at the back end (so to speak) of Terminal City. I'll schwing by BDC&WB I'm sure. I'll need a quick beer before we head out (hee).

Graciously,

I will get my gut X-rayed before hand to make sure I have no kidney stone to take me out of the game like last year. On the bright side I finally got to be on drugs at burning man. Ha ha!
I'll be ready for action! Motsky.


Thanks Motsky,
I've already submitted the request for your early entry. You're in good shape (but you knew that). Although another minion is appreciated, I won't be able to get another early entry authorized.

Moochas smoochas,

I could yell in a bullhorn or restock tp.. possibly wipe down some seats depending on the time of day. The heat out there still fucks me a little from time to time. This year I've packed lots of Emergen-C so I think I may have a better time in the heat. My trip is still up in the air a little but I'm thinkin I may make it. And no chair this year like last year, though I will bring the walkin boot just in case. But now that I've found these croc style shoes I can go for much longer wihtout stirrin up my toe nerves as long as I'm on my pill to keep the nerve shutddown.


That's totally cool Tool. If you can make it, I can sure use your help on the bullhorn. I don't wipedown anything, but occasionally pick up bits of trash. Nothing icky though. The nice thing about my gig is that most of the time we'll be just cruising the city going from bank to bank delivering tp and getting loud at people. So you'll totally be in.

I truly hope to see you out there.

Thanks Sailman. That's just fascinating. I do hope that you compiled this on company time. My fav is a modified overbite/lean cuisine, where the leaning is back against something but the ass isn't necessarily being supported.

Keep the silliness coming,

I seem to remember that some of the signs on the porta potties were based on suggestions from people on Eplaya.

Are you doing the same thing this year, cos I saw a great one today:

unjon that sounds truly like a pain in the ass. good luck with that.
thank you princess for the input. yes I do publish signs submitted from burners all over the place. feel free to write poo-etry and sayings (on company time even better) and post them right here and they will be made into pottie-signs.
this weekend's exciting adventure at pottie central is to print up the interior signs. this will take time and effort as they're going to be on quarter sheets and therefore of uniform size. now I need to figure out how to do this in ms works (bleh).
keep those bowels moving with burning thoughts.

Charmin with aloe is a one-ply toilet paper.

It's natural greasiness feel so good on my booty that we use it year round.

Sometimes I give it an extra wipe just because I like the way it feels.

I wonder who has read what it says on the side of the can of Bag Balm.

Allow me,

Since 1899, Bag Balm has been the farmer's friend helping keep dairy cows from becoming chapped from the harsh Vermont environment.

Another side says,

After each milking, apply thoroughly and allow coating to remain on surface.

Another,

For use on cows, thoroughly wash treated teats and udder with seperate towels before each milking. To avoid contamination after each milking, bathe the udder with plenty of hot water, strip milk out and dry skin. Apply Bag Balm freely and massage gently with this proven ointment twice daily.

Nowhere on a can of Bag Balm does it say for use on humans, just pets and cows

just sayin'

new slogan?

"Don't fuck up the suck up, don't clog the pipe with your baby wipe."

I love playadiptiy, last year the first potty I hit past the greeters had MY poem on it. What's the odds?

offense taken.


i may be as fucked up as Typewriter at a PC convention, but all 4 of my children are healthy, well-adjusted, good looking and on their way to success much greater than their insane father.

1 in grad school at u of r
1 about to grad from harvard
1 at u of chi
1 entering high school.


it is obviously their mother's fault that they are so 'perfect".

so any insults you hurl their way will be met with a ferocious "fuck you", and then a comparison test on the progress any of your little bits of mushy dna might be doing vs. mine.


you will lose.




as you can see, this proud papa bear will eat you if you fuck with his cubs, and werner herzog wont be there to film it.

At a regional in a few weeks, a few of us are planning to set up tables outside the loos, wear tuxedos, and have mints, hairspray, tampons, hot towels, etc.

I wanted to sit there like judges, with number signs to hold up as people exited but I was outvoted.

Postby brmannoob » Sun Jul 19, 2009 2:27 pm

So, um is there any actual volunteering needing to be done, or do you have it all covered now?

(How about safe, sane and sober potties; and all-fucked up potties? You know people who care, and people who don't even know what there is to care about?)

It is really simple.

If you must hover just lift both the lid and seat. Hover your business and then close the seat, lid and exit.

I don't hover and am none the worse for wear from it.

Hopefully this helps just one potty be in better condition for all you poopers!

The direct word from my poopervisor (Robbidobbs) is that there are no more early entry passes to be had for work before the event starts. However Robbidobbs loves help during the event and you could join her on her rounds anytime during the week for some PSA announcing. I'll let her chime in on this when she gets online again.

BTW welcome to ePlaya. :D
