Marjorie Skinner's Worst. Night. Ever.

All of you not voting for the Fire Ceremony are thinking way too much that "Peru, that might be cool" and not enough clicking on the link.

The rodeo might be actual fun, and GEAR Con will be tedious but considering there's a guy on my bus that wears a top hat every god damn day, it can't be that much worse than just living in Portland.

Rodeos aren't fun. It's generally lots of flag-waving bullcrap, accompanied by the occasional bit of animal cruelty.

But the steampunk thing sounds like it would be far more interesting to read about, so that's winning for me over schadenfreude.

The Peruvian fire ceremony sounds like it might well have been one of Marjorie's mandatory classes at Reed...

Did i miss Ned's review from his laughing hiatus? It's not the Worse. Night. Ever., if i can't read about it being the Worse. Night Ever.

Article me, or it didn't happen.

Gear Con has L.A.R.P.S.
A variety of Live Action Role Playing events will
be taking place around the con this weekend.

BUT, the Fire Ceremony has Fire Energy, with song, drums, rattles, and ritual. Tough call...

Speaking as a Reedie (1-2-3... SHUT UP REEDIE!). Anyway, speaking as a Reedie the first two would be fairly enjoyable to almost every strain of us. We are notoriously allergic to Rodeos and everything that could occur at one.

It's coming, Stephonknee. Should go up Tomorrow or Friday.

(And you're right, it's not Worse. Night. Ever.)

One time I went to a rodeo and the fucking bull jumped over the goddamn fence and tore through the parking lot for like 10 minutes and the cowboys had cowboy him back in with lassos and stuff. It was the opposite of a worst night ever.

Make her go a whole week without beginning a sentence with "at Reed..." That will drive any Reedie insane.

Make her go shopping at Wal-Mart for a week.
10
Make her wear Crocs for a week.

Rodeo is the antithesis of fashion, and thus the obvious choice. Suggest that Marjorie be compelled to write a column on "Rodeo Style" and karaoke the song "Indian Outlaw" afterwards.

OOH OOH MAKE HER WEAR TEVAS TO A FANCY FASHION SHOW OR ART OPENING OR SOMETHING.
