With the continuing influx of new people (Big firey welcome to you all!) I guess it makes a lot of sense for us to have an official "getting to know you" type thread.

)"I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast, for I intend to go in harm's way." (John Paul Jones)Best Fire Moment So Far: At my house's recent Beltane party, my girlfriend and I made our fire performing debut (a month after we'd each lit up for the first time). Some other fire-performing friends were there, too. At one point, I had a burn already going, and my friend stepped into the circle (of about 40 happy, party-going onlookers) with his poi going. I welcomed him to the circle, we looked at each other, and started dancing together... And then, another dude stepped in, with a pair of flaming clubs that someone else had brought. So the three of us looked at each other and pretty much said, "All right! Let's do it!" And we started up...And then the streetlight above us went out. And everyone looked around, realized what had happened, and started cheering. And then we just had ourselves a blast (until the fuel burned out...).
