Finally! My first burn.Will it hurt?

Post by bud buddah » Thu Jul 15, 2010 2:51 pm

Well, I'm finally gonna make it to the playa this year. Been meaning to go for years, and always had some lame excuse :-) The stars aligned this year and so I'm out to dance in the dust.
As a first timer, I have to ask some important questions.

1- Will there be fat, old ugly naked people on the playa?
2- Can I walk around in a t shirt with no pants.
3- Where can I buy a sparkle pony on the playa?
4- Does Token EVER take a break from ePlaya?
5- How can I get invited to camp at the boobie bar?

All sarcasm aside, I'm looking forward tremendously to meeting a mess o' new friends and taking in all the beauty and harshness of Black Rock. I still have lots to build and pack, but ePlaya has been a tremendous resource for a newbie like me.

Welcome!
I see you've been lurking the ePlaya for a while now!
Clearly you're skilled in snark and sarcasm, so you should do fine around here.
I hope to see you at the MnG!

Bud, if you want to buy a sparkle pony on the playa, come by Barbie Death Camp around, oh, say Thursday afternoon. I'm sure by that time I will have several I'd be happy to sell you.

Don't contact Piney. Booby Bar is invitational. So you gotta show up on the board, be a no-drama person, have interesting things to say, and show us that you're a contributor--not a drain on resources. Also, we stopped accepting campers for this year's burn a month or two ago.
Of course, you can come by, help, and try and infiltrate during this year's burn, so that you're a natural when it comes to next year;s.

My original post was entirely in jest. What, couldn't you hear the sarcasm in my voice? I'd love to camp with the boobies, but I know that most camps are full by now. I was considering camping with the hookah lounge, but I suspect the smoke could get old after a day or so. I'll probably wander by the lounge since I play doumbek and that would be the right spot to play. Then I can see if a week's worth of hookah is what I want next year.

Hope I'll get to say hello to everyone at the meet and greet.

Will there be fat, old ugly naked people on the playa?
tipped me off that it was quite sly tongue in cheek.
