Evening Bar. (* shakes jar of old dust onto the NEB) Home Burn at the Morris Burner Hostel was a nice clean change, with a very welcoming vibe. A happy evening, with good folks. We watched the live stream of the burn. Interesting the way it was sequenced with fireworks throughout and the big boom and big fire coming at the end. Was it even possible to see the man topple?

It was--from at least the 3 o'clock side. Happened fast! He fell towards 12 o'clock.

It was a very fast Burn, Savannah, very well done and very tightly controlled. I had a great view from inside the perimeter (between the Conclaves and the Sandmen) on one of the EMS teams patrolling inside just in case... and randomly assigned to the sector where my son Puppy and his bride were with the Sacramento conclave. That was awesome.

But. :| I came here to share a bottle of Tullamore Dew, in honor of MyLarry. Such a very sad loss. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

*rides in on War Rabbit*
*sidles up to bar*
Ah, nice to see some of the old gang......Hiya!
Another toast to MyLarry, indeed......a real gem!
I wonder if Elorrum or Elliot (our seemingly official bar decorators), could create some sort of memorial somewhere in the bar? not ostentatious, but just a place we could glance, gaze, or stare and cry. We've lost others, and it might be nice to have a "spot"?......or maybe that's not appropriate for a Bar...I dunno. Just a thought.

*Runs over to hug the new/old stranger* Hi Misa. Where you been hiding? Did you go to the burn this year. Do you really live in the Czech Republic? Wow. Here's some coffee with vodka. (Like we drank at the burn this year.) Add some rum and vanilla and it's almost Kahlua.

No, somebody buried a damn car right where I need to put a septic tank.

Who buries a car without a body in it? Is this a 'thing' that I don't know about? I know they have junkyards in AZ. My relatives live in one. (10 kids, 5 trailers. I'm not lying.)

ah
wouldn't you want to find out what kind of car and how much it might be worth?

Hi bar peeps. I've got my wine thanks. Question. When you got married did you consider growing old with that person? Having a family sure but today is our anniversary. Wow. Marriage can really work.

Lolz... it'd probably be funniest if we all did this drunk...

But it'd be a waste of time for me cause all I'd say is... "Y'all crushed it... again, as always... do what ya do, Burn baby Burn!"

But if I remember this one of these nights... maybe I'll say some outlandish shit... hmm...

This was only my 4th year, but like college, I feel like I've got a degree in how to Burn/party/rage... I've graduated to slightly cynical(especially since I now believe there actually is a population cap) so I don't "recruit." My first three years all the Defaultians would ask about the Burn and I'd ramble endlessly about everything I could think of... I imagine that's why so many Defaultards think we're some "holier than thou" party animal junkies(which is probably true)... but now when they ask me how the Burn was I just say, "Awesome, as always."

One friend was like, "Well, tell me some stories." I said, "I've been trying to get you to go for 3 years... why the fuck would I waste my time now?"

Now, he's probably more curious than ever...
