Well, it all makes sense now...I thought that "you're doing it wrong" deal was just shtick, and now I find you guys were serious! I have been doing it wrong the whole time. What's your mailing addy so I can send you my ticket? and now that I am sending you my ticket, I'm going to need a ticket, so this is where I ask the burner community for a little help, I need a ticket, and I have to have a ticket cause like, I need to be at the burn and junk. BTW, Stretch, you need to give me a stamp, cause like why should I have to be put out of anything? Gift me, Gift me, harder harder!!

I tried -- I really, really tried to read the linked-to blogpost.

I didn't get very far. From what I read, Canada and the Masons are allies in a secret war against Sweden. Both sides are personified as Victoria -- Sweden as Princess Victoria, the anti-Bella (I'm going to add to the conspiracy here by saying that the country band Lady Antebellum is allied with them), and Canada/Masonia as Queen Victoria and her modern-day avatar, Victoria Bella. VB has been secretly raised to be the new Canadian/Masonic monarch, once the war on Sweden is complete.... or something like that. I'm pretty lost, actually.

Yes, the smell of truth............

"Gift me, Gift me, harder harder!!"

What on Earth. It was a query to have someone pay for fuel as I have a vehicle. It just seemed awful to miss another year once again... And it seems likely so once more. Yet to be clear, this is a no unwanted touching zone here. That's just not sexY.

Someone gave me the page to find a person to travel with, so it may be possible. It is that I am as well am commencing with a new hiring, and so it may have to be the upcoming year. :-(

So if worse comes to worse I will see you all then!

theCryptofishist Awww, this is cute btw.

Have you checked with your regional rep?? http://regionals.burningman.com/ca_ont.html

There are lots of people going from TO. Perhaps you can meet up or your regional rep can put you in touch with someone...

"9th year of NOT getting to BM." That sounds an awful lot like a frequent eplayan, whose name I shall not speak.

Victoria, don't give up! You will get to Bel Aire, then defeat Sweden, then finally make it to Burning Man. In that order.

Clearly, you didn't get to the part where Superman's shield is actually a Jew El or Jewel and the following LOTR reference. It all makes sense after that.

I had to quit sometime in the Masonic and list of symbols. Also, part of the page was cut off, but it seems that even if I did get the whole sentence, it wouldn't have helped much. Where do the sparkly vampires fit in BTW?

The OP didn't mention car or gas at all- maybe we should all be psychic? And can she really claim to have burned since 1987 if she's never been? That's just wrong. Newbies to eplaya could get the idea that the burn is responsible for the WTF.

I am new this year, I am not someone messing with you if that is what you meant.

You made me laugh with this, but the weird part of it is that I in truth need to accomplish precisely that. When I was a little girl and imagined what life was going to be like when I was older, I would not have ever expected this situation in life. I could not care less of Sweden, their Baden, or what they do. Yet there is NO QUESTION that this is a serious political situation. I have been letting people vent their stuff on this board, yet it is in fact a very sophisticated work and highly important in a political sense for the future.

In relation to the order of events you set out, I am good with that as long as I am attending Burning Man next year. :-) Sounds like a plan.

It is a Jew El obviously, and specific to a Princess cut Diamond. My views on drugs are clear, I guess you did not get that far into the column.

I wanted to create something for Burning Man inspired by time, as the column is mostly in relation to that.

Uh. I MAY have accepted it if you said Superwoman against the Borg Queen yet I see no thunderdome correlation. Anyway, it would probably more likely play out as High Tea at the Empress. Are you going for the cucumber sandwich... or... not..? I can not believe that I wrote that. Sorry all, I have to be far more serious in the way I represent. That's as far as I am able to go with it. At least on an introduction board!

You're a pretty self righteous sock for missing 23 years of burning man and living so close.

I think under the inverse law of difficulty, you have to actually live in reno to be this new and whinge about anyone missing the burn.

Postby VictoriaBella » Mon Aug 13, 2012 2:18 pm

So nice guys, your welcome makes me smile. I am exited to be there. Yet, again, it seems that it will be ANOTHER year where I will not :-(

I am SO sick of this. I got hired somewhere, it's awful yet required, and can not be with you. It is so upsetting, and it goes this way by some means every year... there is always something... Yet, there is NOTHING on this planet that will keep me away in 2013! That's IT!

Anyway, HAVE FUN everyone. If anything is any different for this year I will let you know. I will be planning for the upcoming year, so if there are any forums, advice, places to create my project, or theme camps that sound good for me to speak with then let me know!

Makes me feel sick.

Sorry to hear you'll miss this year's event, but it's never too early to start planning the trip. First timer's guide and Survival Guide are a good place to start (as well as other informational resources on the main site), and then from there spend a little time browsing the boards. As you might guess, the Preparation subforums are about preparing things and working on projects, and the 2012 Event subforums are geared towards things connected with this year's event. The 2013 Event subforums will be created/opened up in the fall.
