FRFF 2004 Roll Call

   Discussion: FRFF 2004 Roll Call
emilie is CRANKY · 16 years, 2 months ago

hehe. thought i'd start this up. (yes, i know it's only april. shaddup.)

so. tickets booked already! *squee* :) count me in. who else is coming?

ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
*raises hand* I'll most likely be there as well with bagels and yummy baked goods in tow.
Josh Woodward Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Sara and I are in.
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Paul and I are in. Lower camp bound as usual. :)
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
dude! i forgot about that. which camp should we camp at?
I can see the bunny Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
You should lower camp! Even though I can't make it again this year, the coolest kids lower camp. Queen Shelly and the estrogen tent! :-)
Phoenix Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
nah. The coolest boys and girls choose the camping location with the maximum sliding capability ;-P
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Yes, all the coolest kids are camping on the side of the hill. :) It's fun and it's between lower and upper Frucamps, making for easy visiting to both. Just remember to place yourself with your head uphill when sleeping and then you can just slide right out in the morning. ;)
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

It all depends on how old and crotchety you feel. :)

Lower camp: Flatter, quieter, and with JillMom and Julius (I hope!) parenting us better'n anybody can! Much communal yumminess and lounging.

Upper camp: Noisier (And I mean that factually, not as a judement. :) ), hillier, where the action is, yummy with music, not sure about the communal yumminess and lounging because I haven't been there during mornings/days.

So there's pros and cons to both and it all depends on what your personal preference is. I'm old and boring and crotchety and spoiled so I like to be downstairs. :)

goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
upper camp has the fabulous lori and steve, and also plenty of communal yumminess. plus plenty of jamming and sets by cool pros. and it has meeeeee.
stealthlori Back · 16 years ago
it certainly does have yoooooou.  with buttons!  whee!
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
(if i ever get off my ass and design them and give the design to jessica-the-button-chick, that is.)
stealthlori Back · 16 years ago

them's the facts indeed.  and there's not a lot of parenting upstairs because, like, hi.  i'm on vacation from all that schtuff.

lounging upstairs is nice in the daytime because there's always a couple of folks wandering in and out, but it's not too loud and crazy.  so if you're tired or sunburnt you can relax in the shade and still watch mainstage performances. 

and if you're not ... well then why would you be upstairs instead of down at one of the stages?    

Phoenix Back · 16 years ago
Dood. I'm *so* planning on my first(!) non-sunburnt Falcon Ridge ;)
Paul Back · 16 years ago

Shelly Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

it's NEVAH too early to start thinking aboot/planning for FRFF!!!!!

if all goes as planned john & i are goin up the weekend before & setting up 'the estrogen tent' & 'the lobby' and reserving all the space we need for 'the pirate's patch' & helping steve set up the budgiedome and get upper camp setup/cordoned off and i'm just gonna stay there for the long haul.....

so  don't be afraid of me if y'all arrive on wednesday and i'm like 'PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'; i'll have been the solitary camper at the patch since saturday, seeeoooooo  ;)

be nice to me.

also....thus far i know me with the ET, jillmom & dad's tent & kat's tent, andrea & paul's ginormous tent{heeh!}, donnagirl's le petite tent, anita's le petite, my friends stuart & janice's tent and i THINK kerry & jill's larger tent again.....those are the one i DEF know about thus far for lower camp...

josh, are you & sara lower camping it again this year or are you 'movin on up'?? teehee

coz...yeah.....i have already begun planning the layout and such{ok...i started planning it LAST year at the fest......i know...}  so knowing who all's planning on campin lower and tent size would be MOST appreciated!!  schpanks!!!!  y'all can just frum me 

Josh Woodward Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
We're all about the lower, now that we're old farts. The way I see it, I'll stay up and make lots of noise in upper camp until I get tired, then I'll head down to lower and get some peace and quiet. :)
John J. Ryan Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

Shelly is right.  We'll both be heading up there the Saturday afternoon before to get everything set up, both downstairs and upstairs.  Fun times!

I stay in upper camp, because I'm ALL about the sing-alongs, yo!

Kat Kunz Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

yes yes yes, my beloved parents and myself will all be in attendance this year (er, assuming no last-minute health problems befall us again.  pneumonia is teh suck).  lower camp, as ever, but i swear to god i'll be less 'fraid of conquering the hill at night and attend more of the upper camp's evening musical glee this year.  :D 

this is my sixth annual FRFF!  good heavens, it's hard to believe.  why, i remember the heat of '99 as though it were yesterday...  and those young fruvous whippersnappers were there!  ahh, the good old days... *hobbles away on her walker, muttering to herself*

nate... Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
From what I know of you, emilie.. I'd say you should camp upper.....

But, still come visit us in lower camp. :)

stealthlori Back · 16 years ago

um.  hi!

i'll be there too.  i know you're all shocked.

also, i have a spare 4-day camping ticket, by the way, available at the lowlowlow February sale price of $70.  First come first served, frum me or email me if you want it.

Songbill Back · 16 years ago
I'll be there. Lower camp, ya'll.
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago


Paul Back · 16 years ago

Hello Andrea

We are almost neighbors seeing as you live in Broad Brook and we live in Windsor


Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago
Yay local peeps!! :)
Paul Back · 16 years ago

I second that! I have met one other family that comes from Windsor  Locks every year. Central Ct is well represented at FR!

Phoenix · 16 years, 2 months ago
I'll be there but y'all already knew that ;-) Squeeee!
renita Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

i just realized something.

frff will come and go while i'm still in europe yo.

*weeps* I'm gonna miss you're westward ho visit....

*weeps some more*
renita Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
wait. i'm an idjit.

that trip is maybe after the next frucon. not after frff.


*stops weeping*
Phoenix Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

*sends anti-weeping vibes to  renita *limey* long*

I wouldn't ever miss my  westward visit! Word. Next year ;-)

renita Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
oh, i wasn't worried about *YOU* misssing your westward visit.

i was momentarily worried that *I* would miss it.
Phoenix Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
dwwd. But....your not being back home might have endangered the complete operation...
100% dainty! · 16 years, 2 months ago
wooo! with bells on!! and maybe i'll bring my drums!
goovie is married! · 16 years, 2 months ago
 Somepeople and i will be there, with violin, guitar, and andrew bird songs in tow...we're staying at a b&b this year, but we'll be hanging out at upper camp as usual, and making plenty of stops in lower camp to bug the rest of y'all. :)
Phoenix Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

Yay! Since you guys will be the only ones who actually get some sleep it's your task to keep us awake and entertaaaiin us. Yo.

goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
*prepares songs, dances, and broadway-style musical theater extravaganzas*
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
*prepares self for songs, dances and broadway-style musical theatre extravaganzas* :D
Erato · 16 years, 2 months ago

zil · 16 years, 2 months ago
talcott and I'll be there camping in lower camp cause I'm way crochity (thanks andrea) and he'll do whatever I want MUAHAHAHAHAHAA... erm...
Talcott Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Aparently I'm going to make it there at long last :-D
Kris 'engaged' Bedient · 16 years, 2 months ago

I am so there.

I don't know where I will be camping yet.

It's a girl! · 16 years, 2 months ago
It depends on the logistics of bringing a baby with us. But we figure that it would be a good chance for Andy's mom to meet her granddaughter. I don't know how much time we'd spend at the festival-- I mean, obviously we'd be doing some stuff with family and I can't see us hanging out till all hours at the budgiedome every night! But I think we could maybe do one long day and Sunday.. (maybe more- i'm not sure)

*thinks* actually the budgiedome during the day should be a godsend since it's cool and shady and pretty quiet-- Maddie should be able to nap there... oh! and dibs on the bondage chair when it's time for feedings!

I hope we do manage to come-- I'm all excited about showing off our little gal! Plus, well, it's FRFF-- it rocks. As do our friends who we don't get to see often enough.

Oh and Emilie? I'll make sure Andy brings you your autographed copy of 'Mike Fanning!'
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

you. rock. *^_^*

you must come! we wantss to see baby maddie, preciousss! :)

stealthlori Back · 16 years ago

the bondage chair shall have a "reserved for ellen and maddie" sign on it during the day, then. 

oooh, a bondage baby.  we're raising our little girl right, aren't we? 

Misch · 16 years, 2 months ago
I'm in. Upper camp, as always. Must order a ticket this week...
nate... · 16 years, 2 months ago
I'll be there.

Lower Camp Shelly, of course.

soul groove feline · 16 years, 2 months ago
i'll be there as long as i'm healthy, have the money, and can find some transportation.

upper camp, of course. it's where the action is.and the orgy tent.
Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
you haven't forgotten about our rendezvous, have you?
soul groove feline Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
of course not. *purrs* ;)
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Well, you can also hit Camp Dar's massage tent and the Slutty Free For All Tent if you'd like.
soul groove feline Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
ooh. i'm so very there.
Brian Dinsky · 16 years, 2 months ago

FRFF!  WOO!  USA!  USA!  (not to exclude canada, of course.)

Good LAWD I can't wait for FRFF.  I haven't been much of a traditional budgiedome fruhead in a few years, but i'm hoping to make an appearance and say howdy to a nice handful of people.  don't be shy, people.  don't be shy.


I've been sitting inside the house all day, with the occasional trip to the porch to back in the warm weather to smoke a cigertte.  That might explain my non-sequitor manners.  Or not.  Yeah.

meh · 16 years, 2 months ago
Well, I had planned on coming to FRFF this year.
Then life got away from me.
So now I have no idea if I'll be there or not.
And if I am, I'm not sure which camp I'll be at, either. Preference leans towards the Dome, but not sure.

*finally got the tiny smattering of pics she took of last years FRFF developed*
Paul · 16 years, 2 months ago
Bringing the family for the 4th consecutive year and taking the plunge and volunteering so expect things to be really messed up!(kidding)
monkey · 16 years, 2 months ago
I'll be there -- top of the hill by the water truck. "Camp 9" is what we are officially called. Its so nice that after six years, my camp finally has a name!!

iPauley · 16 years, 2 months ago
Barring some unforseen catastrophe, like the planet exploding, I plan on being there this year.

Will buy ticket after May 5, so it's on the June credit card statement. ;)

-- Pauley
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years, 2 months ago


ooh, make sure you get the ticks before may 15th, y0, or you won't get 'em supah-cheap (but i expect you knew that already *slaps forehead*)

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 16 years, 1 month ago
Wimp, I wouldn't let a little thing like the planet exploding stop me.
Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 16 years, 1 month ago
hey baby, can I make your planet explode?
iPauley Back · 16 years, 1 month ago
I'll make your planet explode....

(What do you mean this isn't an IM window?)

(oh $#!t.)

-- Pauley ;)
Paul · 16 years ago
Ok shells bells you are arriving the saturday before the fest. Curious as to how thats possible. Are you a member of the prefest volunteer crew? I have been to the last four fests and this year we are volunteering but still can't check in I believe till wednesday. I would like to arrive earlier though. (I actually have 3 weeks vacation this year!) I can take two weeks off in the summer and still have a week for the year end holidays! But I digress. Do you arrive early to set up the budgie dome?
Shelly Back · 16 years ago

*nods*   yah...i'm on volunteer early crew{my first year for the early crew!!!}and  steve's doing it yet again{coz he's amazing!!!} so...yah...budgiedome will go up that saturday along with the upper camp's shower, as always, as will 'the lobby' down below in 'the pirate's patch' and, of -course-, 'the estrogen tent'.  =)

and i envy you the vacation; i hafta take about 4 days UNpaid in order to logistically make everything happen, but i'm an anal bitch who doesn't like to disappoint and likes everything -her- way, so i'm willing to make the sacrifice.  :)

Paul Back · 16 years ago

5 Years of drudgery to get 3 weeksvacation but it was worth it! Thats great you get to set up the dome on Saturday. More time to party!! Pirates Patch? Estrogen Tent??(could be dangerous  for males!) More info on those please!

Did you volunteer before? What crew? How did you like it? Lotsa questions I know! I like punctuation marks!!!

As this is our first year volunteering we are somewhat anxious to find out what we will be doing but apparently we won't know till mid july.

John J. Ryan Back · 16 years ago

I am so psyched about FRFF being right around the corner!  I don't volunteer, but I just show up that weekend before to help with the set-up.  i don't stay, but i do leave my already setup tent there as a way to maximize time when I get there Wednesday evening.

Paul Back · 16 years ago

That sounds like a great idea. Do alot of people do that?


John J. Ryan Back · 16 years ago
The early-setup volunteers do this to stake first claim on camp sites.  You need to be physically helping a early-setup volunteer and set up your tent in that campsite in order to do this.
Mamalissa! · 16 years ago
I don't see me anywhere. Well, it's time. I'm officially announcing that I'll be camping in Lower Camp this year. That'll make it an even 2 and 2 (plus a non-Fru uphill summer). Perhaps I'll even break out the singing bra...
goovie is married! Back · 16 years ago
you better come visit us upstairs, tho. dwd.
Mamalissa! Back · 16 years ago
But Of Course!
Phoenix Back · 16 years ago
Whee. I see Meliffa again!

( chewing granola bar, hence bad enunciation ;-D )
100% dainty! · 16 years ago
Are we supposed to have gotten our volunteer info by now?
Paul Back · 16 years ago
the volunteer overview page says you will be notified by mid july about your assignment I know they cashed our check for the shirts so I guess we are in??
100% dainty! Back · 16 years ago
Well yay then! :)
Paul Back · 16 years ago
What crew did you list as first choice? I think I picked cooking or serving food. So bring bag lunches!!
