What a great picture!

Okay, now I'm certain I didn't see you guys at the Meet & Greet. I would've remembered such fun costumes, and would've been drawn helplessly across the bar to make your acquaintances.

Ah, see... She was only there for a moment looking for me... but I was back at camp changing into what ended up looking like Spagetti Western cowboy attire!

I didn't get to spend enough time at the M&G... so: Next year was better.

Great time at the M&G seeing and meeting so many folks, old and new. Thanks to Doc and the BDCWB for the great lounge and vibe and for ensuring we weren't crashed by 50 frat boys smelling free alcohol and food. And the food! Yum! Thanks to all who provided the bounty! A good time to be sure! Until next year...

Improvising my injured finger as a productive phallus of fertility, eschewing glistening globs of jiggling gelatin was a great ice-breaker. Everyone who enjoyed my "product" was a unique source of entertainment!

Thanks to Doc, Mel and the rest of The Team it was a wonderful time of catching up and putting faces with the avatars.

MDF provided a Blue Moon in a very practical fashion.

I have four videos, lasting about six minutes, of the M&G beginning right at 6 p.m. and ending at dusk. Shoot me an email to james.jacoby@wellsfargoadvisors.com or PM me here (the email would make it easier on me, but I know nobody cares about that) and I will forward them along to you. These are safe for work. Even the shot with Ygmir in it.

I knew I had the junglesmacks quotes right! I just couldn't find him so I could pin it on him. I don't even remember saying some of my quotes. :shock: Clearly I need to reduce the posting while drinking.

I just couldn't figure the quotes I was given before I had to leave. Next year I'm skipping the damn CORE burn...fuck it!

Yay There were some that were mine! I have to admit I would not have remembered saying the Lemoncello quote though... :oops:

Got a couple of nice photos of the results too - although Savannah was wise enough to tell me NO INTERNET so you won't see her's.

I actually took quite a few pics of the M&G and am wondering the best way to put them up - 99% of people were happy to be photographed but I'd like to do it right - perhaps a guest pass to a private folder on Flickr and you can PM me if you think I took your photo and I'll send you that pass code?

OPen to other /better methods though!

FYI I was the portly Englishman that sounds slightly Australian that was making Espresso Martinis.

Anyone wants their photo off the interweb it will be done straight away - photos should be large and quite high res for download.

I just want to say a massive thank you to all the people that helped out at the M&G. From the food providers, the bouncers, the megaphone owner and those fucking people who fed me espresso martinis - thank you.

You all made my job really easy.

And you all tidied up!

I thought the ass print sheet was sheer genious.

Really bummed I didn't tough it out and stay at the M&G. I arrived much too early and was not feeling so great and my camp beckoned me back for a rest. (I was just down the street a couple blocks) Its a shame I missed out on a chance to meet you all and see Ygmir again. I even made Barbie Death camp stickers. I'll have to get those to you guys somehow next year, which I sadly have to skip. Maybe I'll see some of you at Reno Decom or ??? Either way I want to keep in touch with the Burner fam.

Me too. There seems to have been a heck of a lot going on at the MnG this year... I was there until late, yet I seem to have missed most of it. Kind of like Burning Man!
