Hey you Tiki Beach Burn celebrants-
Sorry I can't make it to the Burn (I live on the "other" coast), but I'll be there in spirit.
That is to say, Hakalugi will be wearing my new GlowTiki beads, which I hope will lend their light to the happy occasion.
For more info about the GlowTikis, go to this link: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=20184&forum=12&0
Meanwhile, happy birthday to Tikibelle.

I just wanted to thank everyone who came to share my special day with me. It was a perfect day to be at the beach; not too hot, a bit of a breeze, and a clear blue sky. I was surrounded by wonderful people, and delicious food, of which I ate WAY TOO MUCH! There was good conversation, comfortable shade, 4 cakes, spinning fire and a burning tiki; what more could a birthday girl ask for! I'd love copies of any picture you may have taken, so please post them. Sabu or I will also post any non-tiki central pictures that are e-mailed to us. Then I will compile a website with the best pictures and post a link.
Thanks again for making my last twenty-something birthday such a blast! Love you guys!

Happy Birthday! I had a great time visiting with you, Sabu, Mom, and all the TCers. Mrs. Fury was bummed she missed it but was there in spirit.

We were loooooooooong overdue to catch up with our Southern California friends! We're so glad we were able to make it. I'm bummed that I didn't start using my camera until later in the afternoon, I missed getting pictures some of the folks who had to leave early, like Al-ii, Tiki-Kate, ookoo lady, and Krustiki. Also, my timing is rotten -- I went to use the bathroom (which was astonishingly bad, even for a public restroom), right when Hakalugi's tiki was burned! So, no pics of that (thanks for posting your pics, Hakalugi). It's probably just as well -- that thing was far too beautiful to be burned, and I might have leapt into the fire after it if I'd been there.
Here are my pictures:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful day at the beach! I miss all you guys.

Looks like a good ol' burn! Lot's of Old timers! We we're going to try to make a sneak attack but we had a major flea infestation that we had to deal with ( Waikiki for 9 days and our house/hut was a Spa for the suckers!! all locked up and hot!!!). 4 days for bombing!!! Anywho, looks like Dr.Z and Bongo Non-Fury were there for us. Happy B-Day to Mrs. Sabu too.
