I'll probably have to add more as my mind settles back down (and after I've gotten some sleep).

Thank you Tiara for organizing the greeter shift. I never imagined it would be *that* fun.

Thank you Doc Pyro for hosting the meet and greet and Thanks to Friendly Jen for running the romp. What a great night.

Thank you Yonder (and honey, If I'm misremembering your name consider that I was very drunk) for helping me get up the man when vertigo attacked.

Thank you to the Funk band playing on the esplanade who passed the vocals mike out into the audience on Tuesday. Singing along was like nothing I've ever experienced before.

Thank you to the countless people who responded when I tried to make a connection with you.

And thank you to the beautiful young men next door who accepted our invitation to Thanksgiving dinner and then gifted us with a private fire dance and fire blessing. You were the best neighbors ever.

thank you to monkey boy and affinity and gordon and everyone else from dreamcatcher camp for letting me chill there throughout the last few days, and most especially for letting me hang during the burn...what a fantastic view!

anyway, a VERY nice bunch of people, great camp.

I'd like to thank the pancake makers, the Gerlach peace officer who let me out of a speeding ticket with only an unofficial warning, my neighboors for looking out for this first timer coming solo not quite prepared, the fire dancers and other preformers; I could go on and on but will stop here.

I want to thank those two folks in the art car that I waved down while I was unexpectedly tripping my ass off on mushrooms. Of course I can't remember your names, but you drove me back to the ambience ambulance camp, while everything was falling apart and the temple burned, I couldn't understand what I was looking at and there weren't any signs anywhere. You were patient and speedy and caring and helped me so much through the my incredible frustration and self-condemnation for doing such a dumb thing and returned me to my safe place. I got through it alright cuz of you!
Thank You Thank You !!!

Thanks to the girl on the bike on the dark open playa!

I realized I was an idiot out there without any light. I asked you for a glow stick and you gave me one.

You sarcastically told me: "This cost two bucks at Walmart"

You rock.
thanx...and I got the message!!

And I'd like to thank Loopy & Bob from Fairyland for such an incredible time we had together at a party after the Burn. And of Course my awesome campmates Nic, Justin and Joanna.

Addendum: Thank you to that rad blond bartender at Pinky's who told me I was cute and gave me a kiss.

Thank You All at the G Spot and Everyone in Nowhere

Post by dahousekat » Wed Sep 03, 2003 11:03 am

Thanks to all the meisters at the G-Spot for running a cool, comfortable and welcoming camp. Uber-preparedness goes a long way. Rob, Lisa, Jenn, Mark, Dana, and all of you, a huge thanks.

Thanks to Michael for getting me off my butt and out to the playa. Thanks to Tulana for the healing sessions and Jamie too for more of the same. Thanks to Kathryn and Brian, and Kathryn I'll never ever forget that dance at the burn! Thanks to Maria for sharing her chakras and bringing me down to human-ness again. And thanks to Winnie for all the goodies.

Thank you disco roller skate camp on the esplanade, whatever your true name is, for the great visuals early Saturday morning. Thanks to the domed Rave Camp all the way out at 2:00 also for great tunes Saturday morning, and thanks to the crew from Ashland, Kris I recall, for the toke that got me back on the dance floor and dancing hard.

Thanks to Jill and Lillee both in beautiful white dresses for the wine at the burn, and wish I had talked to you longer!

All thanks to the critical tits party people and especially the women I was honored to give foot massages to at the pedicure tent.

Thanks to the Man! and great thanks to the Temple of Honor. Thanks everyone! I had a great time, just a few small moments of paranoia in such a new place for me, but mostly increasing open-ness and real healing over the course of the week. I'll be back and I'll bring it as best I can next year, to give something of what I've received.

Matt, Rave Boy, Pinky and now dahousekat

I knew I'd think of more

Thanks to the fellah who gifted me with my fluffy when I was chilling in the Blue House Dome.

If my first response to his gift was an odd one, I apologize.

I originally thought the offer was "would you like to fuck me?"

Thank you to all the guests who showed up from around Black Rock City and pitched in alongside the residents of the HeeBeeGeeBee Healers camp.

Whether you were a pro working in the back tent, an amateur giving a foot rub in the front, loaned us a table, or just wandered by with a treat or a misting or a kind word for whoever needed it, you brought healing energy to the camp that helped to lift and sustain us throughout the week.

It made for an especially great experience for this virgin burner, who will most certainly be back next year. Thank you!

To all you folks who visited Sunrise Station, and esp those who left behind grafitti and gifts, THANK YOU! This was my second year at BRC, the first time I was involved in making an installation, and it was incredible. We had no idea people would be so moved by our little subway station, so thank you thank you, esp. J-Sun, JoyJosieJames, and all the folks we met after the burn.

Huge and endless thank you's to Pinky for letting us blend drinks at the bar the past three years. The friends I've made working behind that bar and the times I've had have changed my life for the positive immeasurably. The entire Pinky's crew, thank you, I love you guys. Also have to give a big thank you to Chaka and the whole 'Deep End' crew, the 'hood was rockin' for sure. Thanks to everyone who brought donations when we started running out, we had a great time didn't we?
Again, thank you Pinky, BM wouldn't be the same without you.

Thank you Grover and Queen Mel for the smooth running SoLoCo Village and the Solo Collective Camp within. It's amazing that so many folks can camp together with no drama. I enjoyed my RP positon and would love to do it again next year.

Thank You Zona for the plane ride. Flying 25ft above the deck was a hoot. Landing the plane in the middle of the Black Rock Desert 15 miles from anything in all directions was mind blowing. I'll stop there he hehe

Tiara, R-pod, Playaquest (the unholy trinity) I love you guys. nuff said

Thank you Doc for the Meet & Greet. It went off very well. I think it should be an annual event at your little piece of the playa. What do you think?

I want to give a huge thanks to my Paint Shop crew: Laura, Paul, Ray and Kristen. They rocked--I couldn't have done it without them.

Thank you to everyone who sent in paint. I brought home extras, but not many.

precipitate, thank you for the lovely evenings we spent drinking and talking.

clandyone, thank you for letting me be a small part of one of the best wedding ceremonies that I've had the honor to document.

Thank you to the people and crew of Burning Man for providing this "event."

Thank you for the love and support of the people here and on the playa. You all helped make this a special year for me.

I wanna thank those beautiful women (plural! ha!) that invited me to the GCBEC! Who would've thought that'd happen? Nobody in MY high school graduating class, that's for sure. (Actually, I might have been the only one that graduated, but you know what I mean.)

Thanks again--that's the single kindest gesture that could ever be offered to an old guy. Too bad I wasn't qualified to participate.

Next time I think I'll have more drinks beforehand.

To Dyna-lite for printing up 2 batches of our labels, people just loved them.

To the rest of my eplayan family, just for being there for me. I will never feel alone as long as I have you folks around me.

To Sara(h) who created the Bell Tree and gave me one of her bells, I will cherish this for as long as it continues to chime.

To Spyral thank you for all you do. It was one of my highlights of this year meeting you.

To our neighbor in hushville Bill, dont know if you ever read the eplaya, but we are so happy to know you and glad we were able to corrupt you further.

Gosh i am sure there are hundreds more...
