Careful, dude, I might be old enough to be your mother! :shock:


I do find (to get back on topic) that whole manly-bits-in-a-skirt thing to be one of the things I like most about burner culture. 8) Seems like that would be handy for another activity I read about: sunrise blowjobs out at the trash fence. Or has that tradition been abandoned since the BLM got night-vision goggles? Too bad if so :x although, since My Dear Husband has elected to stay home, it's probably a moot point for me, anyway. :roll:

Graidawg, if you get all the way to BRC from Over There, I will at least offer you a bacon sandwich. The bread and the bacon will not be what you're used to but there will be real HP sauce. How's that? :lol:

Could be! As long as I don't wind up being anybody's "playa wife." :shock: Having been happily ensconced in the Good Wife role for 30 years, I'd like to step outside my comfort zone and stretch a bit.

Still working on that "no expectations" thing. 8)

And Graidawg, sorry :oops: I did see that you are 42, so no I am not old enough to be your mother.

Did I read somewhere that the median age for Burners is >40?

Mother, father, whatever. Does the sexually roles paradigm apply on the playa? I read the post and thought how cool would it be to run into your mother/father while wandering BRC. I'll probably write a short story about it.

ETA: Since I'm still a birgin, I will need to conduct extensive research; you think the IRS would buy that?

Okay then, to be serious, I can't imagine how that could credibly work out as cool. For example, when I told my Mom I was going to "an arts festival" and would be "camping in the desert" for a week without my husband & kids, she had one question:

"Who told you you could do that?"

:roll:

She's my mother, and despite our lack of common ground, we manage to maintain a courteous relationship. But imagine us so estranged that we could each embark on this enormous enterprise/pilgrimage/what have you and not even mention it to each other. We would really have to be enemies for that to happen. And no I do not think it would be cool to run into a closely-related enemy on the playa. Interpersonal drama is not what I am looking for there. Of course, your definition of "cool" might not be congruent with mine.

Or you might be writing an Oedipus Rex-kinda story, where people need to gouge their own eyes out at the end. :shock: Not my thing, sorry! But you go ahead. 8)

montanaprometheus wrote:Since I'm still a birgin, I will need to conduct extensive research; you think the IRS would buy that?


Sure! :P Once you get that story published you can write off the whole trip!

MyDearFriend, the median age in our camp is in the low to mid 40s. But we go from 21 to 80 so everyone is on the shady side of some number.

Thanks, Doc and Moonrise! I am on the sunny side of "over 50" and I find it very liberating :wink: in a fuck-em-if-they-can't-take-a-joke kinda way. Pretty heady stuff for a sweetly sympathetic little nurse, really, so apologies in advance if I overstep. Just smack me; I can take it.

Oh and Montanaprometheus, I wish you well with your writing, seriously, and hope you find a cool story in BRC. I came across this in the "douchebags and fucktards" thread and immediately thought of you :lol: in a good way! Here you go (emphasis mine):

Running into my douchebag sperm donor father that I haven't really spoken to in a few years at Silkscreen Camp. We live in the same city and NEVER run into each other. 51K people and I run into him at BRC! :shock:
We were cordial. lol!



The F'tards across the street that land grabbed 1/4 acre (of corner real estate) and never used it for anything all week. :evil:


Now we need to hear from somebody who came to BRC and ran into a kid s/he thought s/he'd ditched... :twisted:

Every time I read something on ePlaya I'm floored. Whether it's some posting about the therapeutic benefits of soaking one's playa feet in fresh vomit (I laughed so hard at work I was in tears) to the deep conversations about technical issues, science and culture ...

I'm still on the fence about going, to be honest, because of financial issues and commitments. But, every time I read something here, I think I need to go to this, I need to meet these people, experience the craziness.

In the long run, the money won't matter, I won't remember the crappy reporter job and my other commitments won't matter much, but I'll remember Burning Man.

I want to make a point to meet you guys, or at least some of you.

What? Damnit. Someone told me the cool kids weren't going this year, they were heading to some event that was so cool and exclusive that the cool kids didn't even know about it.

Since the cool kids weren't going, they BMORG let me buy a ticket but I had to wait on line for 8 hours.
