However, she added, in the short term "I'm going to have a lot more unhappy people than I was counting on."
LOLOLOLOL Ya, right. Ya think!? :shock: Total cluster fuck.
Neither John nor I have gotten tickets. Out of our entire camp, numbering about 45 people, I think only 4 people, in addition to the free ones given to BMORG volunteers, have gotten tickets.
Way to go!
Needless to say, if we did decide to go, I'd be damned if I would further this folly and use that STEP program, which is sure to prove to be as fucked as the lottery.

See you in 2013--maybe.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me
