Posted:Autumn is well and truly here and winter is approaching rapidly. And so PiP shall hibernate until next year.

But not without one last spin on a winter's day! On November 1st we have some special guests in town:
Cassandra - Exquisitely beautiful dancer and world famous French Frog
Shibaki - Barefooted extraordinaire from Florida
PK - Pierced wonder and founder of PiP
Nat - The spinning angel with a killer smile

So to celebrate we're going to hope the sun shines and have a PiP!

Thanks to everyone who made it down to PiP this year, espically you hardcore spinners who were there come rain, wind and cold! It's been a wicked summer!

Sorry Matthew, but Jez and myself left fairly early, didn't see any fleeces around. Hopefully someones picked it up and kept it safe.

Great night people. Here's to next year

Posted:Hello,

I had a great time, if a little cold (Flids beasts soon sorted that out). It was lovely to meet some more of you.

Flid - Thanks for all the introductions, and the excellent pictures.

MBM - Hope you find it, I didn't see it either. Have you been back to look. Sounds stupid I know but my mate left her phone under a bush in the park and it was still there three days later (not working though )

Alice - Notice how in the pictures it says 'Jon demonstrates his manlyness' - Who built the fire in the first place??

DMS - True! Who were the ones who went off and gathered the sticks to start it, and then later on to keep it going longer?
It was great meeting you

I was very impressed with your twig snapping skills (All very hunter gatherer ). Speaking of which, i've got four rather large splinters trapped in my left hand from the hawthorn. It may burn well but it's a f*cking pain in the arse to break up.

Posted:Well, HELLO EVERYONE, it was wonderful to meet you all. This may be a bit of a long post, but, who cares?

Pink...?; I was awestruck by your hunter gatherer skills there... nice twigs... I'm sorry I didn't sing you the dying frog song after all. But it was for the best.

Matthew B-M, hope I haven't stolen your fleece man (see PM) and good wilderness skills as well.

UCOF, your breasts really do look smaller in real life. That's the last time I trust the internet.

Glss, thank you for the tea and the talking, thank you and Dom both for giving me a bit of history in regard to some of the other... er... debates I'm having on this site.

Tia, thank you for the alcoholic beverages and the chocolate.

Kat, I found it so reassuring that you don't fancy your siblings. I'm sleeping better at night now.

Bovril, wow! That penis of yours is huge!*

Sunbeam, if I'm not down to Canterbury as soon as I get my hands on some of the spendable stuff, then I'll eat my hat...

...or Martins instead: thanks for the directions on Monday. I found a shower in the end, but it was a mission and a half. Gypsum, gr.

SpacemonkE, that was some cracking meteor advice of yours! Just lopping a bit off the chain has made a huge difference.

I'm a bit lame, but I've forgotten your name I'm afraid: the guy in the frighteningly un-warm looking sleeveless top. Thank you for your meteor advice as well, my mentor: can't quite do the side-side one hand butterfly of yours yet, but I have broken my kitchen window!

Dirty Marmite Spider, I shall be in touch next time I pass through Oxford. May be there this weekend, you up for a spin?

Flid, thank you for letting me play with your flids. Wow, this whole post sounds like a tortured euphamism for an orgy.

Coleman, nice to meet you, you still abiding?

Jez & Sheep, nice green! So, this lab you work in... I mean... can you get pretty much whatever you want from there?

Cassandra, I love the way you spin! You look so happy when you're spinning.

Frostypaw... Dykeboy... the Ninjas... Helsbels... BamBam... Amber... wow, so many of you all. And all the people who's names I've forgotten as well... I'm so lame. It was wonderful to meet you all! I'm still confused, as I've only just made it home, and I haven't had a shower or a coffee yet. Had a very strange weekend, which culminated in me missing the last train back to Sevenoaks on Monday night because I went to Richmond by accident with John Hannah. That's a story for another post, though: this one has dragged on for too long already.

See you all again soon.

*The... er... one on the balloon man of you.
