If I get any more fucked next year, I will spontaneously combust. But
here's hoping.

This was the first year I was NOT awake at 7am, out of the last I don't
know how many years, probably since 1992. But this year, I did not go to
the pavillion. For the first time, I genuinely had something better to do,
and it did not include snoring. I hope.

YES. I actually didn't have to work for the first time either, and I love
you all for letting me, the sacred SubGenius Product Slave, have Slack and
time to run around and watch out for situations as the medical

I think Me and Magdalen came up with that.

As one of the few to have actually witnessed this event, I must say it was
a highlight.

I did as well. My pictures of the prom did not turn out, so if anyone has
pictures of me and/or my incredibly sexy escort, PLEASE give them to me in
some form!

I think of him as Devo meets Janor, without the stupidity.

Not to mention doing the Dance of the Salted Slug.

Anyway, XX-Day was the best yet. As someone recently said to me, the
saucers didn't come, but we sure did. I was so blissed out on Saturday
night, and the weather was TOO PERFECT, I was convinced we already were on
the saucers. Maybe I am. I managed to build my own ship, and at XX-Day, I
launced it.

Long live the new flesh.
