We have a guest article today by the infamous Burger Girl, all rested and recovered from Firefly. She didn’t have the guts to go to Big Barrel the next weekend, but she did have a few words to say about her years at Firefly and how this relates to her other profession!
The last day of Firefly is here (Thank God, cause I need to get back to writing about real stuff, LOL!) and Burger Girl could have met a celebrity, but alas, she blew her chance! And she had a plan all worked out. Not the most ingenious of plans…
This is the same celebrity Burger Girl had her brilliant Brady Bunch plan to get a picture with. He apparently had something to say about the evacuation last night due to Tropical Storm Bill:
We have a strategy: When Snoop’s transport goes by behind our stand tonight I’m gonna lie down in the road to stop them and we’ll get him to roll the window down and take a selfie with us. Stay tuned. Also, I may need bail money.
Sounds reasonable…so how did it go?
Guys, this is serious. I think Snoop snuck by me when I was making pretzels. Or refilling pickles. Heck, maybe it was when I was fixing that fence that fell down. The point is, I never got the chance to take a selfie with him! Omg while I was typing that his van drove by. And I didn’t even get a picture because I was too busy updating Facebook.
But it appears she had, ahem, fun hearing him in concert….
Snoop just mixed up California Girls and I Love Rock and Roll. That was entertaining! Of course, the secondhand smoke may be making it seem slightly more entertaining than it actually is. Hard to say.
Okay, we are going to end this very bizarre set of articles, unless something really exciting happens here. Thank you Burger Girl for your interest viewpoints about Firefly. I will have one more Firefly article coming up, but Burger Girl won’t be making an appearance (sorry B.G.)!
Miracle of miracles. Burger Girl got out of the evacuation of 2015 safely, but we are all very concerned about one thing. A commenter on my blog wrote the following:
I hope she remembered to turn off the grill. Now I’m worried.
Yes, nothing raises the eyebrows more than thinking about 90,000 drunk and stoned festival attendees rushing from a huge field onto a bridge over a major highway.
We evacuated. People are still leaving. We are sitting in my car safe and sound. No worries! Thank you all for the love. Circuits are very overwhelmed with the large number of people trying to call loved ones.
Apparently Burger Girl and some other “campers” as she likes to call them (I call them “grillers”) were last seen wandering around the streets of Dover and wound up at… yes, another place with grills:
I brought my fellow campers to one of my favorite all-nite Dover places: Hollywood Diner.
You can take the grill away from the girl, but you can’t take the girl out of a grill. But did she turn off the old one????
As the sun rises on a new day, and the already muddy Firefly turns into something that will be a lot of fun in pictures today, we must not forget what got us there in the first place. Fathers. If there were no fathers, we wouldn’t be able to do anything. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there.
Okay, shameless plug there.
I’m just glad Burger Girl thought of the important things as she was leaving:
On my way out I stopped to grab ice so we could chill our wine. This is what my friend texted me when i told her: “In the midst of a high risk evacuation massacre we know we can count on you!!! “
Ice. Very important. But did she turn off the grill?
She did manage to get some pictures before the grill abandonment last night:
I wonder how much cleansing she got last night. Cause we know Burger Girl got to her car pretty fast, along with several campers. She was drinking heavily (the wine) and went out to eat (Hollywood Diner). We shall find out today as the story concludes on the last day of Firefly 2015. And the mud will fly! And who is the woman in green? Another burger flipper or one of the friendly cashiers?
The Dover Police have literally just told everyone, all 90,000 attendees and workers, and probably the bands, they need to evacuate the Firefly Music Festival due to Tropical Storm Bill coming their way. As I sit here, in my nice air-conditioned, non-Delaware killer mosquito home, I do hope Burger Girl gets somewhere safe and very soon!
Burger Girl has been a naughty girl. She has been tweeting without telling me. More shenanigans down at Firefly Music Festival courtesy of the one, the only…Burger Girl!
Whoa…wanna watch the language there Burger Girl? This isn’t Nascar…
Sounds yummy… didn’t want to take any leftovers from the grill there Burger Girl?
Yeah, cause that’s gonna make the stink go away…all that does is mix it into something even more rank..
Yeah, that’s where I want to eat…
Never heard of that band Burger Girl…
Okay, now you’re just making up bands to sound all hip…
Yes, because having a previous foot condition must be a prerequisite for taking a job that requires you to stand on your feet for 51 hours…
Did you shut up and dance? Now that’s a band I’ve heard of Burger Girl!
Burger Girl had something very bad happen on her 2nd work day at Firefly. Before she even went to work, something happened to her home away from home:
Yes, the walls came tumbling down. This is not in reference to a John Mellancamp or Bastille song either. They literally came down. Burger Girl could only say “Apparently I’m a terrible engineer. My wall fell…” I worry about the workplace safety though. But she could always blame it on the wind. Oh yeah, that’s right, there is no wind today…
But the good news is Burger Girl does get to work at an awesome office. Voted Best of Calcutta 2012, here is her work environment:
Yes, I can see the appeal there Burger Girl…
She did reveal the “big thing” that happened yesterday:
RV got stuck in the mud yesterday in front of my car. The guy who got out to talk to the tow truck driver said “I’m not anti-society; I’m anti-stupid”. Says the guy who drove his RV into a muddy lot that was blocked off and where other cars had been stuck.
Coming from the girl who agreed to work 51 hours in mud! Didn’t really need the picture, cause the description made it look a lot worse. All I see is some water and dirt. Must be some funny stuff in the air on the other side of Route 1…
But she did brag about how “close” she was from The Lawn stage:
I am so sure Burger Girl will get perfect pictures when the bands play. Especially with 50,000 people standing in front of her…
But apparently she is having a lot of fun, even jesting with the Hipsters who come her way…
People keep asking for “chicken fingers”. I keep telling them “chickens don’t have fingers”. Only drunk people appreciate me.
I wonder why…
I happened to be at the local grocery store this afternoon, and several of the Firefly attendees were in there. Lots of bikinis and guys with their shirts off. One was in the first aid section, buying everything in sight. A worker at the store asked if she could help her, and she said “My friend’s foot hurts, so I’m just going to get everything to be on the safe side.”
Yes, the brilliance continues in Dover, DE!
I can’t wait to hear more from Burger Girl on Day Two. What other witty words will Burger Girl say next to the mass buyers of what has to be the best burgers ever made? To be continued…
A friend of mine is flippin’ burgers down at Firefly. She has to work 51 hours in four days or something insane like that. She needs mud boots, and she wants NO drama. Good luck with that. With an estimate 90,000 attendees, Burger Girl is going to become intimate friends with a spatula and grease. Will she go deaf by the time all is said and done? Follow her adventures all weekend here on Exceptional Delaware. I will be updating this nightly.
She works hard for the money, and these are the spacious digs she gets out of it. Love the color coordination. It’s obvious Burger Girl chose only the best fabrics for her, uhm, walls. Lots of privacy too I’m sure!
After getting her, uhm, room set up, Burger Girl had to get to work. The first goal was to get her office set up.
Looks like a lot of work space. And the company seems to be very green cause her outside office is near something called The Lawn. And this is her view:
What a panoramic shot! Burger Girl did confess it was quite muddy due to the rain yesterday. She did know this beauty wouldn’t last and future shots from this view would be filled with hipster delight and sweaty, drunk, and lord knows what else in the coming days.
Yesterday was the first day of the festival, and Burger Girl gave a report:
Day one down. Days two through four to go. If anyone needs me, I’ll be working the American Grill near the lawn stage during the entirety of the festival. Stop by and say hi, y’all!
Not sure if Burger Girl knows this is a hipster festival, not the country music festival coming up. But hey, make sure you say hi y’all!
Someone mentioned to Burger Girl they were able to put donation jars at their desk, er, uhm, grill and made a lot of money when they worked there years ago. I was able to obtain some exclusive comments from this conversation:
Burger Girl’s Friend: Wonder if the food service tents will have their “donation” jars again. That’ll make the drunk craziness worth it in the end.
Burger Girl: It will make my 51 hours worth it…
Burger Girl’s Friend: I looked like I was on the way to a strip club afterwards. Lots and lots of singles.
Burger Girl: You just made me really happy lol. My booth is right at the front entrance. Maybe I’ll make more than I expected!
Okay, someone going to a strip club after working at Firefly for three days is just gross! Ewww….
One citizen in the state wrote the following about Burger Girl:
I feel bad for Burger Girl. I can hear Firefly three miles away. She must be deaf, unless all that burger grease is flying up giving her instant ear plugs!
After what, I’m sure, was a quiet and peaceful night of slumber, our stalwart burger flipper woke up:
I brought this to our forensic department, and we weren’t sure if this was actually Firefly or a scene from Mad Max: Fury Road…
The last we heard of Burger Girl was two hours ago with this very cryptic message:
Yoooooooooo…. It’s too early for drama. For real. It’s Firefly day!!!! I’m gonna focus on that.
To Be Continued..
