Posted:Damn, didn't know i was that hysterical during classes. But hey, that was a time when i was absolutely obssessed with poi & did it for like hours everyday.

I am still amazed at how we braved the cold last night. Getting a little too carried away with the djembe bashing helped though ... and people started going boogie woogie ... haha!

See you guys next Wed!!!

Posted:i cant believe you guys think its cold! im running around with a tshirt on weds night, thinkin about how wonderful n fresh it was.....
SHEESH! no stamina!!

on a non-bagging note, im trying to organise a second practice/meet up session and so far, its looking like a sunday arvo?

Now, Bender informs me he has his groovy capiero (sp?) classes at 2 at st kilda... So im thinking if we make it about FOUR? and probably somewhere a little easier to get to for us public transport southerners. I have a friend down in frankston who wants to come but cant, because she's always working weeknights.....

So, suggestions? comments? yay nays? input apprectiated ` THANKS!

oh, btw, drumming was awesome weds night, thankyou Odin! xoxoxo

Well Done Bender, thats awesome! (she says again)
urrrrrrrrr if you havent printed them, do you want to change the time to 8:30? erin and i are always there by then... if you have, never mind! hehehe, *hugz*

do you think we could leave some at juggleart??? they seem to be pretty accomodating there, with leaflets and stuff. I guess we just gotta make sure we are super safety concious when teaching people, and when doing fire ourselves.....

Falloutboy! Erin, simon and I are juggling freaks now! Last night we were practising outside, one doing staff, one juggling and one poi, in rotation for about two hours! EEK!

errrrrr, one question, do you have any hints/suggestions on ball construction? i have the pellets and such to make the glow balls, but am a bit unsure as to how to get it so i can get the Leds back out! Juggleart no longer sell the clear covered balls, due to the pellets inside biodegrading...... however me was given some for free! YAY juggleart YAY!

Posted:i got woke up by a reaccuring nightmare... its was so common that it's not that scary anymore. In my sleep I can predict what the bad thing is gunna do, cause they do it every time so in dream talk i tell em to "get fucked" before waking up. That beyond the point. It is like ten to eight in the morning and im on holidays. I shouldnt be awake for another 4 hours at least.

Back to the post... WAAAAAH EXAM REVISION I WANNA GOOOO

But school is such a poo teeth right now.

15th of november is when im completely free. (and when my lip gets pierced) we must organise something BIG round then.
