Nope, I'm anti-glowstick; they're soooo one-use...

TPBM will get up before sunrise at least once on the playa, to witness the magnificence...

If what you mean by get up to see the sunrise is stay up all night then watch it. Yes

The person below me will hug a furry-coat wearing individual on the playa.

I prefer to not sleep before sunrise to witness the magnificence!

TPBM will bring an alarm clock to the playa

You bet I'll hug a furry coat person. We've (me and smAshly) have bought at total of 5 women's fur coats. Sadly the only one that fits me is a vest, but thats ok.

Nope. Closest thing to packing I've done recently is fill a couple garbage bags to be taken out to the dumpster!

I AM wondering wear to get a utilikilt for under $100...


TPBM will hug a fur coat wearer on the playa only to realize that that isn't a fur coat! :shock:

edit due to simultaneous postings: busy with work, busy with projects, the only thing I'm NOT doing these days is sleeping!

original post: Yeah I'm purdy furry myself,,,, but I'm sure that will happen due to my propensity for hugging EVERYBODY!

TPBM is hugophobic

It seems preparing a theme camp is continuous labor of love. For us personally,,,, yeah we have it all together,,,, for the camp? I'm not sure that ever stops!

TPBM is not part of a theme camp this year.

ALWAYS! My creative juices stew for months and then,,,,, BAM! the opportunity reveals itself at just the right time to commit days for creative labors.

TPBM thinks TTITD should split and have a week long regional event in several locations.

Always! Especially if you figure folks you've been talking to on eplaya for a year but never met.

TPBM Has decided that next year they will bring them selves and only them selves and make everyone else actually be "self reliant"!

Hell yeah! I kinda wish there were some sorta feature, that if a post received 10 "!" with in 1 hour, it would automatically be deleted. That way the ePlaya community could sorta moderate it self against spammers. Or Maybe a new button that is a "$" that is only clicked for spammers and people trying to directly sell something. That way it would be different than the "!" but still have an effective purpose. Then if it were found that people were "$" non-spam users too often it could be dealt with.

TPBM thinks my idea would be abused.

Nope :D Though at my first MnG associated with BM in walked a fellow that was def a burner, looked like he had just walked off the playa, goggles and all.

TPBM has also attended a local burner event, dressed in their playa finery and then stopped off somewhere else, only to be stared at like you were a freak :mrgreen:
