To the M&G? Sure, bring your people! Nothing wrong with that.
I bring the First Mate, and she doesn't do eplaya. She's usually much more popular than I am!

Ok, always.

But I told her not to let you pour her drinks this time!! Although, if someone else drives the boat, I might have some o' that shit.

MMmmmm.... Smarties.... so much yummier than M&Ms... real chocolate in nice colours...

You sure you'll have enough room to save all this 'til Wednesday? I'll help... 8)

I'll be camping with the Space Gnomes at 230&E if anyone needs to "help" me save room in my cooler.

Good to know.. Teal (my spouse,) is also way cooler then I am.. you'll all love her.. I'm mediocre. As long as I don't do what I did at the 2012 meet and greet. Everyone ready for my most embarrassing playa story?! I show up to the meet and greet pretty drunk already, with a buddy, with a cooler of yukaflux (fruit and booze.. it's pretty amazing.) I guess we miscommunicated our method of setting the cooler down.. and one end was on the ground, spilling precious moopy fruit and booze on the playa (at least a litre,) while we stood there in shock! My friend was so embarrassed, he just left. We raked, cleaned it up as best as possible.. but fuck was that a terrible way to meet everyone for the first time. Here's to hoping my 2015 arrival isn't as dramatic.
Can you at least admit that nuclear explosions are awesome!?

I made it this year for a time but we were not dressed for the turning weather. Great to drop in and eat up all the great foods. Who brought the salmon? Thank you to all who delivered. :)

Met a few folks in the short time we were there. We must print out avatars next year. I barely remember handles but I recognize tons of avatars now. Happy to see captain's G's boat on display out there, especially after reading efforts to keep her seaworthy.

Great to see so many of you once again at the M&G! I didn't get to stay around too late as I had to be back at camp to get our install up for the evening. Thanks for the good food and friendship!

And to YOU, also, for coordinating the cat-herding. A job well done with energy on your part. It was much appreciated by all.

My specific thanks go out to all the fine folk who attended during the short time I was there. Unfortunately, I had to depart at 8 p.m. to go get the Black Rock Beacon, but I wouldn't have missed this shindig for the world. Let's hope that plans for a PhD matriculation don't get in the way for next year.

This year I paid closer attention to the absinthe reactions... usually I just heard stories, of "I remember everything except what happened after Doc gave me a shot of absinthe." If you have watched prize fights and know the look of the fighter with both hands of the referee's on his shoulders, sort of shaken, but trying to indicate he's going to keep fighting, that's sort of it. I would suggest thinking three drinks ahead before taking that shot, next year.

Good turnout, good spread. If anyone has a blue melamine plate with fishes on it, bring it back next year? If you remember throwing it out? One of a two dollar matched set, no great loss, but long time camping buddies.

I really enjoyed the meet & greet. Friends, food & booze PLUS I got to play bouncer. A firm but sympathetic NO. Come back in 2 hours and join us for a drink. Oh, and of course the swag!! I have plenty of swag left over that's going to SF Decom this year. That's also where I get a butt load of stickers.

BTW I brought those really stupid plastic things from 2013 that were reused this year. You're welcome. That still makes me laugh.
