Points: 1
Crashes: 7

Liz was born in a small village of dancers. They raised her to learn the art of great dance. She now fights crime and protects the world with the power of DANCE.

It’s Desert Bus’ 10th year:

Her first memory of Desert Bus:
Epic Jenga with James at DB5, also for some reason the Kroze and Ashton slashfic. Some things you NEVER forget. *shudder*

Points: 0
Crashes: 0

Created in a lab in the back of a bakery, Tara was made from sugar, spice, and sprinkles. She spends her days doing marketing and PR for geeks, and her nights saving the world from boredom and poorly decorated cupcakes.

It’s Desert Bus’ 10th year:

Her first memory of Desert Bus:
Watching along at home for the first time, not knowing what I was watching but loving it!

db9_liz_krakendanceYou know it, you love it, it’s the Desert Bus-Famous Kraken Dance! 

Liz wants to see you put your best foo-leg—-dance thing forward and make your own version.

We would like to see your own rendition of the Kraken dance, lasting no more than 12 seconds ideally. Whether it’s youtube, instagram or vine, that part is up to you.

We are going to run this challenge until 10:00 PM PST and ask that a link to your video is emailed to [email protected] with the subject line, The Kraken. Please include the name you’d like used if you are selected as a winner.

Your prize for this challenge is the massive collection of Pocket Games!

Crashes: 1

When not at Desert Bus, she can be found:
Being Dammit Liz!
I like to produce geeky events and attend way too many conventions. I enjoy video games that are not Desert Bus. Am I fully enjoying my new position as Event Design Manager at Wizards of the the Coast!

Special Skills:
I have a super secret special sexy dance.

She’s a total geek for:
Star Wars for sure!
Assassin’s Creed
Marvel anything

Claim to Fame:
My super secret sexy dance…I guess.

Biggest fear about Driving for DB8:
I have crashed the bus MULTIPLE times and I haven’t even been an “official” driver. I REALLY hope I don’t crash it this time…oh god…
Editor’s Note: Our official record of official records only credits her with 1 crash thusfar. Has she been cheating on us with another Desert Bus? Where are all these crashes coming from?

If she was reincarnated as a fruit or vegetable she would want to be:
Editor’s Note: No response. Does Dammit Liz have something against healthy living?

Favourite Cheese:
Tillamook Sharp Cheddar

Doesn’t want you to know she listens to:
Spice Girls

Her “moves like Jagger” are more like:
Octopus Mating Dance

To prepare for driving the bus she is:
I am playing A LOT of Borderlands Prequel… to get used to being in front of the TV for hours at a time.
I am taking the bus everywhere I go, not just because my car broke, but to really get into the mindset of the ‘bus’, you know?

What symbol does your superhero cape have on it?
gin & tonic (plus lime)- is that bad? That sounds bad.
