Bonnaroo Baby!


For those of you who have attended weekend long music festivals, you know that it's sometimes quite hard to meet up with friends after splitting up for a band or two. In Austin last fall, we noticed that many people amend this problem by carrying around flagpoles with distinct flags/tops for easy spotting.

We wanted to do this for Bonnaroo.

We wanted a babydoll on top of our pole. The reasons for this decision harken back to a number of instances over the years. None of them are Taco Bell related so for purity sake, I cannot develge all these reasons.

It was a long and hard search through dollar store after dollar store for a babydoll. DC, Boston, Ohio all failured us. Sadly, we had to turn to the last option: Wal-Mart. We found our Bonnaroo baby there--quickly and cheaply. After purchasing her, we went to Taco Bell and then set about naming her.

Refrita (instead of refried, of course) and Burrita were two runners-up.
Chalups won, though. SHe looks like a Chalups. But this picture of her, taken in the car, earned her the name "Baby Baggage" because she's holding the bag and because, well, babies are baggage.

We took a lot of funny pictures of the baby. I am torn about posting them. This picture is the only relevant one. Hmmm....

Well, enjoy the joy that Baby Baggage Chalups inspires as I ponder what to do.

believe it or not people there were some people at the roo who found the baby doll offensive. give me a break. i bet their baby dolls are all at home in the basement suffocating in plastic bags...what is more immoral than that! plus, we feed our baby burritos.

VERY few people, whip. aside from them, it's pretty safe to say chalups was the hit of bonnaroo. seriously...

Three things about Chalups: she is adorable, she is baggage (in every sense of the word), and maybe her middle name could be burrita...maybe?
