Nope...not a soc major. ;)

Thank you to those whose parents took the time to bestow upon them even the slightest bit of kindness. Also...thank you to the other lot for your attempts at pissing me off...I mean, that is the whole object here right? lol Sorry to disappoint....not going to get this supposed ignorant, little girl's goad, I'm afraid. I learned things...and that's all I can ask for. :D

Take care burners! Been a pleasure! May the burn serve you all well. Hope to meet you on the playa someday!

And Cryptofishist---Weird and funny...ha ha...you really have no idea..xxx

I thank the parents who raised children into Adults, able to face this world the way it is, with all its beautiful harshness. Telling junior that they are the brightest and that every day it rains lollipops is no way to produce a productive member of society, it's not very kind either, to anyone. Once someone tells them otherwise, well, they think everyone is trying to piss them off, not just tell them the truth.

Let's see. Ren fairs, Universal studios, Cirque de soli, science fairs, museums, comic cons, fashion shows, strippers, rock shows, jazz clubs irish pubs, raves, buffets, Halloween, weddings, temples, shrines, tea ceremonies, las vages, free drinks, lectures, massages, and much much more.

If I had to travel and pay to see all those things, it would take months and thousands of dollars.

I can see and do all that at Burning Man all in one place for a lot less money!!!!!!!!!!!!

It really is too bad we don't get to see a vomiting Lady Gaga at Burning Man.
