Hello! :D I am from Savannah Georgia orig. but living in Colorado now...
I went to the Burn for the first time last year and had the time of my life! although I felt bad that I had not been able to contribute more, (my trip was LAST minute)
I plan on returning this year as well, I would like to know if there are any ongoing projects in Colorado Springs or the surrounding area that I could help with for this year's burn? I hope we can all make it out there again this year, and I wish love and warmth to you all!

Savannah - thats a warm and fuzzy message.

Greetings and have a blast on eplaya. Dont feel bad about not contributing more, your not supposed to leave feeling that way. Participation is required, but that can be in the form of dance, active participation, simply enjoying all that is there.

You have 220 days or so until this years burn - and the move from Savannah to Colorado is more than half the way to BM!.

later

don't know about colorado springs but there is a fairly big burner population here. I run into them fairly often in boulder and denver. Lots of fire spinners and a few get togethers here and there too. Try checking out the regional here- apogea

Yeah I was expecting you to come and be shitty to me... I've seen what you post. I wonder why you trouble yourself to be ugly to others, but not overly. :)
I don't care if you snark at me- you will not move me you will not effect me and you WILL NOT rob me of my sincerity. So snark away if it pleases you.
Peace and love
Savannah

Whatever it will be that will move your soul, and open your heart- if it's a woman, a job, an experience. Good luck to you honey, sincerely. :)
Goodbye Simon
Oh and just FYI I never liked Phish much...

Hi Savannah,

Don’t worry about all us knuckle heads around here. Everybody’s really much more than ok when you get down to it. Snark and all, we’re one big happy family… putting the fun in dysfunctional.

I’m really glad you had a good first burn. Mine was lots of fun too. Walked around just staring at stuff in awe. It took many months for me to even begin to think of the things I wanted to do to contribute. You’ll find your niche, so don’t’ sweat it.

Hang out and enjoy the company.

That's all right, Simon. YOu can always sit at the small table with me and the rest of the snarks and we can have food fights when they aren't looking.

Better put down a tarp, now that I tink about it.

ONE OF US, ONE OF US!


"There's No Disgrace Like Home" is the fourth episode of The Simpsons' first season. It first aired on the Fox network in the United States on January 28, 1990.[2] In the episode, Homer is ashamed of his family after a catastrophic company picnic. After seeing happy families all around him, he decides to enroll the family in therapy. The therapist tries hard to solve their problems but eventually gives up and gives the family their money in return. It was an early episode, showing early designs for a few recurring characters. The episode is inspired by the comedy of Laurel and Hardy and features cultural references to Citizen Kane, the Batman series, and Freaks. It was noted that the characters acted differently from how they would act in later seasons.
Homer takes his family to the company picnic at his boss' manor. A cruel and tyrannical employer, Mr. Burns fires any employee whose family members are not enjoying themselves. Homer sees that Burns is drawn towards a family that treats one another with love and respect and he wonders why he is cursed with his unloving and disrespectful family. The entire picnic is a catastrophe when Bart tortures the swans, Lisa drinks the fountain water and also goes for a swim in the fountain water, and Marge gets drunk and performs a musical number. Bart tries to win a race that was scheduled for Mr. Burns to win, but Homer is there to stop him.

The Simpsons observe other families on their street, peeking through windows, they see happy families sharing quality time together. Although things begin well, a man at the second house gets his gun after hearing something in the bushes. They are later reported to the police for disturbing the neighborhood. Convinced that both he and his family are pathetic, Homer stops by Moe's Tavern, where he sees a TV commercial for Dr. Marvin Monroe's Family Therapy Center. When he hears that Dr. Monroe guarantees "family bliss or double your money back", Homer spends the kids' college fund and pawns the TV set to enroll the family in the clinic; they are extremely angry with him for this. When standard methods prove useless in civilizing the family, Dr. Monroe resorts to shock therapy and wires the Simpsons to electrodes. Soon the whole family is sending shocks to one another. This causes blackouts throughout the city. Resigned to the fact that the Simpsons are incurable, the doctor reluctantly gives them double their money back. With $500 in his pocket, Homer takes his blissful family to buy a new television set.
