HA! I almost didn't get one, no way it's leaving my clutches!

TPBM wishes they had a pile of tickets to gift.

Didn't you read the What Are You Bringing to the Meet n Greet? thread?
I have 150, but decided that I'm gifting them as crackers for spread.

I have enough of our president :evil:, really do not need to care about other politics....

TPBM wants to be very very snarky, sometimes yell at people to "get their fucking head out from their asses" and actually read something about BM, so they do not ask stupid stupid question, or behave as moral people, and if they want to panic, do it at home!

I think I will do it as last year..just buy pack of 10 pairs of socks per 3 bucks or so in mall in USA - it was excellent choice!!!


TPBM found the way how to fit all the stuff in one suitcase (no more than 45 lbs.) and backpack and will share that wisdom with me :D

Actually I have!
It involves very little fancy clothes - sorry
2 pairs shoes, a sleeping bag, a small camp bed, one barbie doll, a first aid kit
Small tent and extra "stuff" and a wacking great list of crap to buy when I get to Reno.
I will post a pic of my packed bag on the weekend :D

I imagine it is something similar to the back of Doc Pyro's RV.... No one really wants to know!
Or my second guess is that it is place for over heated burners to chill out and regain them selves.


TPBM had to think for a second to figure out what TCES meant.

Not really losing sleep, more like it's the last thing on my mind before bed and the first when I wake up.

TPBM is getting mighty tired of default people trying to tell them what TTITD is really like when TPBM is the only member of the conversation who has actually been.

Damn, you hit the nail on the head! Though, many people I talk to are starting to come around and actually get it.


TPBM has vacation time to use while on playa, so they're getting paid to be in BRC.

The person knows that the most relaxing time in the world is after you take a shower on the playa and you lay back and air dry.

Haven't had a license in 20 years, might not be such a good idea. Hell, I rarely even ride on them.

TPBM is hoping multiple friends get tickets, but only the ones not playing the Blame Game.

Actually, no one I know is going, as far as I know, so, uh, no. (That sentence sounds kind of zen...)



TPBM is still amazed at who does and does not know about TTITD.

Thanks to those who explained to me what TTITD stood for.

I wish I knew how to make a kilt, cause I sure as shit can't afford one!

TPBM is excited to see what this years ticketpocalypse is gonna do to ticket sales next year. Will they sell out even sooner next year?

Haven't done much online shopping for outfits even tho I probably should. I've lost almost 55lbs since January and NOTHING fits anymore. I figure I'll hit up SexFilthAve and the Black Rock Boutique for a few outfits on playa.

TPBM can't stop having BRC dreams...
