LOL - By "pull it off" I meant "look as good as she does in it"... I just assumed that you were using a little hyperbole to express your admiration for the cut and interesting use of color in her gown.

This is "looking fabulous"..."pillage and plundering" is two doors down the hall...just past "arguments". :lol:

You know, my sister graduated from that very iconic Cambridge College, and then she did live in London for a while. Oh yeah, there was Oakland and Norwich first, but we don't talk about that. She's not on the dole, though.

That is awesome, hon! Muah!

I wish a few of the many other "loose strings" would hang together long enough to be tied - :? It's kind of disconcerting to see so many of the past Boobarians announcing on facebook that they won't be able to make it this year :(

It seems like starting a camp is a huge risk anytime - lots of time, energy, and money expended during the year to get ready - but *this* year seems particularly unsuited for it for some reason...or maybe lots of reasons. :?

We will absolutely need new folks coming on board in the next few months to make it happen. :)

Sorry if I implied that we *expected* that all of the Boobarians would automatically jump into the Swish Embassy. Those that want to would be welcome, of course, but it is their burn to do as they please. There is a core group here in Utah that will be working on most of the infrastructure - domes, bar, sign, etc. - and I am trying to expand that group. But much of the work that goes on during the week - adopting a theme night, adding to the stockpile of adult beverages, cooking a meal during the week, moop patrols, etc., etc. - calls for a larger group. The Boobarians averaged around 30-35 every year, I think those that have said they wanted to camp with us is 7-10 so far depending on tickets being available later in the summer (seasonal workers).

But...we are plunging ahead as if everything will work out fine. :D The details will work themselves out as we go...
