Jen and I were lounging in our amazing campsite on Friday morning, and two girls wander up to us and ask if we know Molly. We don't call it that in Canada, so Jen was a little confused. It was also confusing because I had been introducing myself as Souly for the past day. I say no immediately, and the girls ask if we know Lucy instead. Jen says ' No we don't know them, but that's Souly, and I'm just a lurker.' I nearly exploded with laughter, and the girls confused, ask one last time if we know Coca Cola, and I send them away. I then explained that Americans like to name their corn chips after people.
2. Mustard Girl
I'm pretty sure this happened on Saturday, but FD can correct me if I'm wrong. We were in line to get some amazing chicken strips and we see this girl who is clearly out of her mind putting mustard on her caesar wrap. Those pumps dispense a ton of mustard at one time, so at first I thought she was just confused as to how much she was going to get. After the first pump her wrap was completely smothered, and after the second one it was about to drip off of her wrap, and after the third pump it was all over her hand too. FD and I were laughing, and she looked at us and kind of gave us a little giggle and walked away. A few minutes later we heard someone behind us yell 'I think you need some more mustard!!', and we look back and she is back putting MORE mustard on her wrap. We decided that she had just bought the wrap as a vessel to carry her mustard.
3. The case of the teleporting car key.
I'm horrible with my car keys. I knew that if I only had one I would not be driving back home. I had an extra made for Sasquatch and gave to to Jen before we even left. This turned out to be a fantastic idea because I lost my key twice. On Friday I thought it would be a good idea to tie it to my belt loop so it wouldn't fall out of my pocket. This worked well until I got back to the campsite and wanted to change in to some pj's. I remember untying the key from my pants, and that's where my memory stops. I didn't have my key for the whole day Saturday, but I found it on the ground in my shower tent on Sunday morning and immediately tied it back on my pants. Turns out this was actually a horrible idea because when I got back to the campsite that night my key was no longer attached to my pants. I assumed it was gone forever. That night sucked because I also couldn't find my money that I had on me, and I was really hungry. I couldn't get more money or food because it was all locked in the car. I just went to sleep instead. I went all day Monday without my key, and then on Tuesday when we were packing everything up, I found my key. It was just sitting on one of the seats on my picnic table. I have no idea how it got there because I didn't sit down the night I lost it. I swear it teleported back to me or something. I also found my money that I thought I had lost that night. Sasquatch fucking magic. I'm a believer.
4. Why would you send me there? Do you have eyes?
This one didn't really happen at sasquatch, but I think it's funny, so I'll share anyways. On Tuesday, Jen and I only drove to Spokane so she could go to WKD with Switch. I spent most of my time in the hotel watching the Food Network. It made me hungry, so I went down to the hotel restaurant to get some food, but it was closed for a fundraiser, so I asked the lady at the desk where a close place to eat was. I don't think she really looked at me because I was really really sunburnt, not wearing makeup, in the clothes I brought in case I wanted to look homeless, was still wearing 5 wristbands, and had chipped nail polish on like 4 out of 10 fingers. Anyways, she sent me to this place a block away that was like some kind of fancy wine restaurant. It was really really good, but I don't think my server knew what I was doing there. To make it worse, I didn't have as much cash on me as I thought I did, and ended up having to tip him with Canadian money.. I hope he knew it was actual money.
I realize this is really really long and most of you aren't going to read it, but I had a really really awesome time and I will be back as long as I can borrow money to make it happen. I am so happy that I got to hang out with HG, Stormy, FD, Know and Gibbons all weekend. It really did feel like we had been friends for a long time and were just together for the best time ever. It was so hard to say goodbye, and I haven't been able to shake how sad I was to leave yet.
I also found my way over to Empty and Pea's camp and had a little party with them for a bit. I drunk danced with drunk Pea and was giving out hugs left and right. I also got to try Wolfhat's amazing banana bread, and so so much more that has already been mentioned. I missed out on meeting a few people and didn't get to spend as much time with most as I would have liked, but it was still an amazing weekend and there is always next year, and the year after!!
Haha she was the only one keeping up with and matching my insanity all weekend. I think only Gibbons (of all freakin people) ran into us together near the Bigfoot stage on Monday. We were in rare form at that point...
