What are the nicknames of the weekdays?

Postby LilBoosch » Mon Aug 08, 2011 3:08 pm

So excited to be coming home in a few weeks for my second burn. I wanted to know all the weekday nicknames. I know there is Tu-Tu-Tuesday (I have mine packed already), White Wednesday, Spontaneous Naked Thursday, and Burnday. Are there special names for Monday, Friday, and Sunday? Thank you for your help, I want to ensure I'm greeting my fellow denizens of the desert properly and also pack any additional funbox gear that would be appropriate!

Wear your Tutu Monday and beat the rush!

Bonus: when everyone else is wearing their Tutus, you can say: "Tutus were SO much better last night." :lol:

Different theme camps have different theme nights. Nothing BRC-official. :)

Yeah, Hushville was Wings Wednesday.

Utah has Family Home Evening for Monday (Mormon mockery thing)

Sunday is Zombie Day.

Hell, I'm all packed for Thursday.

I think I've heard of Make out Monday? Or is that just wishful thinking?

ETA: Oh, and I think I heard talk of 'Threeway Thursday' at some point. Talk about your wishful thinking. I'd be happy enough not having to do 'One way Wednesday'. Looks like it's you and me again tonight, Rosie.

Not official, just traditions that are forming.

We're doing a Moo-moo Monday
and I believe that we are also doing Fursday in place of Thursday.

But these only with in our camp and not at all official. But you're more than welcome to come by and hang out!

I think we're doing pirates on Tuesday (fuck the tu-tu's, overdone 8) ). None of these are "nicknames", more events that have become more common. Feel free to ignore any of them that you want.

Be aware, however, that if a specific camp is having a theme party they may not serve you if you're not in theme. Probably will, but you never know....

Amazing diversity of answers and they all work/make sense. Thanks for the ideas, not sure how I'd pull off a mu-mu but I guess I'm mu-mu curious! I have some packing to do! Thank you all, looking forward to seeing you all soon!

There was someone who put that in the WWW for a few years running. (In fact, we could look at the on=line calendar right now! but let's not be sensible.)
Moaning Monday
Typical Tuesday
Wanton (or weird, or wanking) Wednesday
Foolish Thursday (aka "assonance is fun!")
Fuckit Friday
Spectacular Saturday

I always liked the sexy ones best: Make out Monday, Touch Me Tuesday, Humpday, Threesome Thursday, Freaky Friday, and Splatterday! Sunday = cuddle day, no fornication :mrgreen:

Seems like a hot chick like you shouldn't have any trouble finding volunteers.

bb's semi-unofficial daze of the weak:

EAT Friday/Sat/Sun - Self explanatory. If you can't get in, you ain't got an EA Ticket. (Not to be confused with an EAT. If you have one, you know.)
Gate - Monday - Gate opens.
Fuckyou - Tuesday (it's when the playa bites you in the ass, if those on it haven't already!)
Paradise - Wednesday - You're home.
(which leads to)
"Yahoo Thursday". Self-explanatory - it's when they start showing up to turn TTITD into a fiasco. (It's also called Lockdown Thursday for the same reason).
Earlyburn - Friday. Now it's also Earlyburn Thursday. WTF with that? BTW - you ain't climbing on the man now. Haw haw haw. (Yeah, I missed out a few times)
Manburn
Templeburn. Also called Slough Sunday by some.
Moop Monday. If you gotta ask you shouldn't be on the playa.
Gitfo. (Spelled GTFO), which if you haven't packed up yet is what you're gonna hear. A lot.

Long long ago I went to a very progressive college. First all the girls had to get nose piercings. Later, all the white guys had to wear their hair in dreds... It was truly bizzar to watch all these people that railed against conformity turn around and try so hard to conform. I was always just plain old me. But then I remember when then unknown nirvana played in the dorms and we all thought they sucked... Can't be right all the time :)

Like hanging out with your lezbeen friends, but NOT wearing the flannel shirt, lumberjack boots, and rolled-up jeans... and getting shit because I'm trying to look like a conformist.

nicknames are so personal... I just call them, "hey, buddy."
