I beg your pardon...If everybody is named Random than how will you tell us all apart? Random will hardly be random anymore and I dont want 40000 virgins all chirping WHAT!? when someone calls out my cool ass super bitchin name...names in a hat? nope nope nope
A playa name is kinda earned- NOBODY is MORE RANDOM than I. period.

on the otherside..regarding those left yet to be named...

Im kinda sick tho of meeting more Sues- Neils-Scotts-Brittneys when Im dealing with the BRC public-
The lack of Playa names is like beigeing out the event- as well as the complete lack of covering the corporate crap logos and trade marks- it denotes a Burn not quite embraced ..or in need of maintainace.

however I stil CLAIM RANDOM!!! muhuhaahahaha.

My eplaya name is a nickname that I have had from working at the Renaissance faire- but my first year on the playa my neighbor gave me a playa name- Kaliedescope (and even spelled it out for me so that I knew it was supposed to be spelled wrong) I like it :D

My trump has been pieced with a blade - no timestamp because I am ineligible due to a rules change mid way (registered in wife's name because she had room on her card).

Oh dear, you're on that Pattern with the blood stain, aren't you?
I'm pretty sure that means we have to remake the total ticketing process over if we are to accomodate you. We'll need 4 pints of blood.

Sure feels that way, but I'm past the whole bitterness thing and just downright depressed about the whole process.

If all it would take was 4 pints of blood I'd go collect it tonight lol.
