Howdy!

Postby SaritaSyrah » Fri Jan 06, 2012 1:02 pm

Hey, Everybody!

So very excited to be tossing my Burning Man Virginity to the dust this year. I don't know what else to say, other than I am so happy this community exists, and I can not wait to get to the playa!

Haha, YES! It was rough. But now I get to go have my own experience and fall in love (or not) with The Man all on my own. HOORAY!

It's not so much the burning of The Man, it's the virgin sacrifice that takes place directly before that. Which is why nobody in our camp has a thing to worry about.

Oh goodness, you should have been here last year, that's when ALL the good snark happened. lol

Savannah you actually remind me a lot of my Sarita.
Misa, you will love her, at this point in her planning she's intending to camp with us barbies! That is if her parents don't drive her bonkers first lol

Oo--I am complimented! :D

Welcome Sarita!!!

You have taken the best possible first step in truly making your first burn a true pleasure by joining us on Eplaya.
Last year was my first burn and it wouldn't have been anything remotely as great if I hadn't joined.
I threw myself into the mix and ended up meeting the folks I ended up camping with (Espressodude and Helga) as well as becoming friends at home as they are only 45 minutes away.
I hope we can make your experience something that will bring tears of joy to your eyes when you watch videos of the burn after returning to the default world.
