I forgot to warn ya I make even less sense when I'm on the innernet. 'tis okay tho, cos when the dominant of my multiple personalities is a benevolent one (he's a truck drive that likes to be called 'Doris') then I check this thread first cos it's the one that counts the most (1,2,3...)
oh man this forum posting habit is getting worse - i'm eating brekky as i type.

pssst everlyone!
*** A call to farms ***
on a wednes day not too far but not too high in calcium from today, we're gunna organasize a filming of wednesday night festivities to be entered into the competition. The idea is to get as many punters on the vid as possible. the filming may take several visits as necesssary.

clothing is optional.
(at least Doris said so...)

we have like 5 weeks before the deadline, so get in contact with me if ya want to be filmed as the time comes. If contact is by telepathy, please avoid the hours of 3pm-5pm. That's uncle bender's special time and Doris dun like it when he/she's disturbed at that hour.

mmmm Mack trucks....

people get to the wed night from 7pm for the keen, 8-9pm usually, and some come REAL late, like stevil! it's a high traffic location (near brunswick st) in a real cool share house neighbourhood so woot! usually bongos call our signal and there's even this really cool local dude that gives us food n softdrinks! i like wed!
but we ain't calling it poi in NO park cos most aus twirlers i know do staff. most rave twirlers are poi cus glostaves are a biatch to carry around 100cm acrylic break-me-please staves when your eyes aren't converging!

and the tree was happy

Posted:Hi luvs,
This weather is a real bummer..I just found out I'm a winter wimp . Sorry to anyone who's turned up to twirling and no one's there- I gave up on SMSing everyone a while ago cuz with all you lurvly fire dancers out there it costs me a bloody fortune in phone bills!..( OK bad excuse - you're all worth it! )
St Kilda would have been Saturday just past but I doubt it happened due to ..gremlins in the clouds I guess..
I haven't yet organised a rainproof meeting place yet as work has been flat out but hopefully we'll have a warehouse of some description soon so our gatherings can gain some consistency again.
Can't wait to twirl again YAY!!
XXXX Tjoni

Only from within the internal furnace of the Shai'Hulud do we gain the geriatric spice.

spice is nice.
