Yep yep! Was great meeting everyone. We're a diverse bunch, and I learned that half of the people I thought were guys are actually girls.

SECONDED! It was great and overwhelming to meet you all though Lazerfox...I never did find you honey! There were more names I didn't know than I expected (proof I need to expand the number of threads I follow) but everyone was so wonderful, weird, lovely, cute, funny, and the biggest surprise of all, BBadger is a sweetie pie! Who knew?

It was especially great to meet (finally) AntiM and her ice-shaving Larry, Fishy, catinafunnyhat, ygmar, figjam, foxfur, and savannah. I also got to see squirrelhead a second time in the lobby of the Sands! YAY! And...anything stupid or annoying that my campmate Shambala did is not my fault! ;-)

Thanks also to BBDC for the discount at the Sand's hotel in Reno. It literally saved our asses!

Yes, thanks Doc! I thought MnG was amazing until I stopped at BDC on Friday during the pancake party. Your village was busting with energy! I have to confess, I was sort of envious of the barbierians.

Thanks to Mel for amazing event management!

Thanks to turtleburp for pouring me shot after shot after shot after... you get the idea.

The M&G was one of my playa highlights. I loved meeting all you fabulous people, and the grilled cheese sammiches were oh so good!

Thanks Mel for all the hard work you put in!

Much love to you all.

I had such a great time, my 'just another 5 minutes' to TnT when he was trying to leave turned into a 45 minute convo with BB Sue. Love the Vege-Pro-Marmite challenge (I think Vegemite won IMHO, but I'm not sure - sorry Emma, but the Promite was too salty). Biggest surprise indeed was the face and personality of BBbadger.

And thanks also to Doc Pyro for the Sands special. It was as great way to decompress seeing playa friends out in the 'smoking area' and getting hugs as greetings in defaultia. Definitely going to be my Reno stopover place from now on.

1 word: UH-MAZING!

I didn't want to leave and wished I had told the BF I would skip the darn CORE burn. I'll try to remember that for next time (whenever that turns out to be)

No worries EmilyD. It was probably my fault for leaving around 8ish. :?

So glad to have reconnected with so many of you once again!! And some of you for the first time.

Mel: I told you that night and I will tell you again. This was even better than last year's (which was still pretty awesome!)

Thanks Doc and hope you enjoyed the absinthe we left in your RV! :)

It was so wonderfully overwhelming meeting and reacquainting with so many of you. :D Thanks to all of you who understood if we have not spent a ton of time together and I shamefully looked at your nametag first--I must admit that I have The ADD, and also tend think of you all as personalities & nicknames first, and your beautiful faces second. It always takes me a moment (or 5) to draw a connecting line between the two. And then I go another year without seeing you . . . difficult on two or three levels! :)

I know there are some that I glimpsed but did not make it across the bar in time to capture and hug (particularly if I was deep in conversation or having one of my tongue-tied spells) . . . as well as those that I missed altogether somehow. Gah! Forgive me.

We are a microcosm of the Burn itself . . . there's never enough time.

Love to all.

Expecialy sory to have missed; Fishy, Ygmir, Shambala and wo..shie. Dang! looks horrid when I write it out like that.

Love you all. miss you already.

As usual the M&G was one of my favorite parts of the week and this year I got to meet many more eplayans than last time.

I would also like to thank Mel for doing a great job coordinating everything.

Everything was so organized and you fuckos even kept everything neat and tidy. It made my position as cleanup coordinatior rather redundant, although I did manage to find a few things to clean up.

And who made that wonderful limoncello? The name was on the bottle but now it eludes me. Mighty tasty!

No, sorry it was mostly empty bottles and a carting a few bags of trash to the dumpster.

Well now that it's been made public hopefully it was picked up by an eplayan who will see this. Although we did reopen the bar to the public at 9 that night.

Well... until about 30 minutes prior, I was dressed as a Crocodile with a clock. (I typoed that as "cock" the first time around. As much as I wanted to leave it...)

We were late to a wedding, so I sped from 3 to 9, and couldn't stop sweating in the GIANT FUR SUIT.

Giant Fur Suit... The Black Rock Desert... That story ends as expected.
