In reply to: why is everyone wearing little white bandanas you may ask??? posted by Alissa on May 22, 2002 at 13:56:04:As being the one whose car broke down two hours into the trip, it was
SOOOOOOOOOOO worth it!!!!! I just decided there wasn't going to be
anything I wouldn't do to make it there. It was so great to be
Alissa's first and her mine!!! That was really special and tons of
fun. I have such respect for carrot baggers. She did a really cool
design on my wrist, which I am trying to scan that shows just how
special she is. It was also so great to finally meet people you have
been corresponding with for the past year or so. Alissa's henna
favors were really a special touch. I can't wait to use my glitter
gel. For all the **** Alissa had to go through, I am so grateful for
the experience!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will look forward to the paper on
having a Conference. It may end up being like a Holiday dinner where
everyone takes turns.
: Nooooo it's not because we were starting our own henna cult.
: In fact, it's not even Coyote related!
: I passed around "party favors" for everyone on Saturday, including
: these little cotton tie-dyeable bandanas so everyone would: 1. have
: something to protect their head with from the sun while outdoors,
: look just as silly as me and I wouldn't have to be alone, and 3. so
: we would all have something to tie around our neck to howl with
: coyotes every night.
: : The Fabulous Alissa is getting her terp test here.....
: Yup that's me looking "camping fresh" in my Aztec lookin tank top,
: and loosing my henna cherry to the equally Fabulous Lisa K. (Lisa
: I were each others' first -- neither of us had ever been hennaed by
: another person before!!) And we spent the whole time APOLOGIZING to
: each other for how terrible our carrot bag skills were!!
: : Coyotes just thrashed Alissa all over the place for this henna
: : conference! Friday, literally every 20 minutes there was a major
: : change in Alissa's carefully organized schedule. Cars broke down,
: : flights were delayed, passengers got bumped ..... Txilar
: : theory about American Airlines, blondes and the caste
: : Coyotes kept tumbling us all around but each tumble just made
: : come out better! Gotta love them merc rets!
: Yeah, this is a serious tale to tell. If I ever recover from "the
: horror" I will write up a big ass article for the Journal (if
: like it) and call it, "So, You Wanna Host a Sirius Conference...?"
: : This pic is looking towards my tent that coyote thrashed a bit,
: : was still comfy and warm when full of "southern women". And ... it
: : was so interesting to find bear poo 8 inches from the corner of
: : tent in the morning, and the tree that we'd tied the tent to had
: : claw excercizing slashes and bark rubbed off where he'd scratched
: : back. Alissa figured he liked the loose soil thereabouts for a
: : wallow. The poo wasn't fresh ... but it was an exquisite
: : just how far up we were in the mountains!
: Yup, we even had a mini scatology lesson for those who gathered
: around to see the poo. Talk about "henna and more" for a retreat
