Re: Your Purple Dragon flag/banner - 9:30 & L/K block

Thank you. It was fun to be out on the edge of the universe with neither generator nor radio.

Odd world out there at 9:30 and K. Chased off a couple of plug and play camp dropoffs, we did. We were totally NIMBY's about it.

Your Purple Dragon flag/banner - 9:30 & L/K block

In the storms sometime Sunday or Monday a huge purple pennant shaped flag with a gold dragon went flying past our camp at 9:30 and K. My husband and daughter ran for a block and caught it. Later, when the sun came out, they bungeed it on top of our shade structure to announce its location in case it...

Re: Burning Man is NOT a Festival

The organization's communications arm, anyway, is very careful not to call it a festival, which connotes the presence of ten dollar pizza stands and paid entertainment for many people around the world. We (they, now, I guess, though I'm still sort of helping out here and there) call it an event, an ...

Re: Have you Plonked(Ignored) any users on ePlaya?

I don't know if it has been brought up or not, but the whole purpose of plonk as I see it is to quietly ignore someone. It seems in very poor taste to plonk someone (= ignore them for your own good) and then turn around and talk about them and make a big showing of how you've done so -- completely t...

I believe it might depend also on laws in your home state about who can be declared guardian. You definitely need a legal note from the parent assigning temporary guardianship. You also want to be sure you're really ready to say, act on the person's behalf in a medical emergency, or other issues of ...
