Being on the wrong side of 50, set in my ways of thinking, you just can't go wrong with barf. If the TV news anchor can interrupt regularly scheduled programming to announce Prez Bush 1 "barfed" on the PM of Japan, that's good enough for me.

I really, really just read this as tho you were bringing barf to the M&G.

Thank Gawd Sham's post above was there to put it all in context (as I tend to forget what we were talking about from one page to the next).

I have a persoal hatered for the term to Puke.
Bartlett (1859) has "A nickname for natives of Missouri" as the second sense of puke (n.), the first being "A mean, contemptible fellow." The association of the Tribes with the "vomit" word is at least from 1858, and folk etymology talks of the old state literally vomiting forth Indians to reservations in Oklahoma.

I can see that. I tend to associate it with the sex pistols (why? I have no idea!) so I didn't have that resonance.

As long as you do it in the toilets, and not on the playa, vomit away.

Ordinarily I'd say something like, "I will rub your nose in it, and make you clean it up," but being sick out there is already so miserable, you've punished yourself.

I wish I had a way to bring Japanese picklebacks. Sake and pickled bamboo. SO GOOD.

If I meet you all there. Will you greet me?

Thank you to the kind soul who whispered in my ear about this event.

I'll be the short guy wearing the Hawaiian light-up lei trying to change his social paradigm. If you don't see me there it's because I got lost, waylaid, or crashed my plane.

Or crashed in my tent.

Tell us where your tent will be (with a good description of it so we don't mess with strangers), and we'll shake you out of it.

So.. after we have consumed the food and drink, and everybody has met and gret... might some of us want to engage in a party game called Catch The Bike Thief -- as discussed in the past? I have five "unrideable" bicycles, also known as Bait Bikes. They are all different, but have the one thing in common that they are not much good for a quick escape. One is patently unrideable. Two of them stop after 20 or 30 feet. One can be ridden indefinitely, but only at a snail's crawl pace. The last turns the opposite direction of the handlebar, so is right next to patently unrideable.

No, I never built the one with the firecrackers in the frame. One day.

Shall I bring them? I suppose we would park them across the street, just within sight, and keep them in the corner of our eyes while we meet and greet some more.

In the red tent next to the red airplane which, if all goes well, will be glowing red in the dark. Seriously.

I'm camping next to my plane at the airport because I'm too lazy to carry my tent anywhere else. And I don't know where else to go. Who knows? It's location may change nightly depending on my whims.

One of the funniest things I done ever seen was people hippie/raver fishing. They were a dark mass on one corner. A guy down the other end of the block was casting a line. Across from there, a big floodlight. I laughed til my face hurt. I like this plan, too, though it wouldn't have the immediate gratification - well, I hope not (ie, the turnover for bike theft wouldn't be as quick as it was for glowsticks/money).

There is a dark alley behind Doc's RV.

I realize we may not get a single bite, but I do have the bikes available.

So, I'm going on eplaya silence now (yeah, yeah...) til after BM. I'm on playa next Monday and there's a long way for me to go between now and then.

Please talk the M&G up - invite anyone who isn't a bloody whinger. Tell them to bring some booze and snacks. Let's make this the best damn party at BM 2013.

Add to the spreadsheet if you want. Come up with crazy plans for after the event. Just get talking and get organising :D

If someone complains, or acts all whiny about the minutia - well fuck em - they are banned from future events (I can say that, right?) fuck radical inclusion if you don't participate

I'll need helpers to bounce and set up from 5.30 on Wednesday.

See you all in the dust!

Cheers,

Mel is spending this Saturday night at Casa de Doc. We will be planning to overthrow the BMOrg. And after that, no more territorial demands and there will be peace in our time.

The Bait Bikes are not as visually attractive as bait ought to be. Well... one is brand new. Perhaps the others will scrub up. If the concept proves valid, I can upgrade a couple of them to fancy brands.

All you need is some fur and El Wire and they wont know the bike is ugly underneath
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Hi everyone. My name is Kylie-Ayn and I would really love to join in these shenanigans. Meeting strangers from the internet has always been a past time of mine. :lol:

I don't know that I can contribute much in the way of food, but booze is an easy one for me. I work in wine, so I am the most knowledgeable about that, but can get liquor as well. Anything not already being covered that I can jump into. My default is bubbly. Who doesn't like bubbly?
