Rain: regular wednesdays will definitely fire up just as soon as the weather does! before then it's irregular wednesdays depending on turd weather or not (all edinburgh gardens fire meety meets are dependent on good weather anyhoos.) Non edinburgh fire meets are more frequent but you'll have to let me know in advance if anyone has the uncontrollable need to twirl - such as that hankering you get when you can't sit still from a circles of light video

Fallout - where you left ya fire gear? hey I just bought 'relentless' on video - it's sooo funny!!

all: your base are belong to us!

to quote anakin skywalker:
"Yippeeeeee!"
braved the weather and she was quite dry and calm!! drummers, firetwilers, dancers and some video camera hijinx were had - Edinburgh gardens happens to be in the kinda park where people wanna strut their funkay thing! everyone was sooo lovely, I was given my first devil stick set by the sweetest crew! I feel immensly lucky to be part of such a caring culture! fire people are progressively making it harder for me to be fazed by life's petty problems
next wednesday gunna rawk!
is anyone up for the weekend @ st Kilda? it's gunna be 14 and dry all weekend!!
meep!

Since it seems melbourne is goin to be treated with some lovely weather over the weekend, i was wondering if anyone was up for a spin on satdy night?

The weekend has landed, all that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties, I got 48 hours off from the world. This could be the best night of my life, I've got 73 quid in my backburner and I'm gonna wax the lot, man.THE MILKY BARS ARE ON ME!!

Yo, battered_rat, where and when? I’ll be in melb over the w/e and I’ve just gotta check out Bender’s new fire stuff .

Now, for a shameless attempt at humour. Is a battered_rat anything like a dagwood dog hot (dog in batter)? yum

Well anywhere really that i can get to by train or some form of public transport, and any time it's dark, seeming it's gonna be warm maybe somewhere like st. kilda, eddi gardens is pretty easy to get to, if anyone can think of a spot which is good on satdy nights then speak up.
And to reply to your "joke", nah, i got the idea for the name from an ad for mambo (what else?)
