Well, we survived the last one. Some of my body hair has grown back, and Geoffrey should be out of hospital by January... so why not do it all over again? Lyndon would have wanted us to... and I think Isobel is still in the park somewhere anyway...

For those of you who weren't at the last firey fandango, I shall be throwing wide the doors of my (borrowed) Sevenoaks home, and inviting anyone and everyone to come and spend the weekend. There will be lots of paraffin, lots of spinners, lots of all sorts of things in fact. Including baked products. Y'all are welcome to come for as long or as short a time as you feel like - stay for a week or just pop in for a spin over the weekend. It's easy to get to and there's plenty of bed space. Or floor space, unless they bring even more lap-tops than last time...

For more details and some critics' reviews see 'Kent 28th - 30th Nov', but bear in mind that this one is going to be a whole lot better. There will be:
weavesmileyMore bed space! (well, at least one extra bed)
weavesmileyMore Michal Kahn! (author of 'Poispinning', mentor, and all round poi goddess)
weavesmileyMore baked products! (going to start baking any day now... fill up the attic)
weavesmileyMore weird stuff going on in the garage! (see 'Pounce... parental discretion is advised)
weavesmileyMore working computers! (It's fixed it's fixed at last at last!)
weavesmileyMore cute poi boys!
weavesmileyMore foxy poi chicks!

So write it in your diaries, tingle with excitement, stock up on paraffin and get ready to set the town on fire! (note to Big Brother: this is a metaphor)

See you in January... ubbloco

only if you makes all the jelly flid wink honest. i'll jelly wrestle mand (if she's up for defending her title ubblol )

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Well, here we are then. At the airport, typing on one of these [censored] keyboards, waiting for Pounce. We have a rather large sign, too little patience, and fourteen minutes to wait until Pounce's plane lands. Tee hee.

The footage is great though. Does rolling pounce around count as spinning? She was sort of spun.

there is only joe, mand, and myself left, and we are all quite beat. i don't think any more spinning will occur this weekend, but you never know.

smit and his friends came back for a short bit but then left again. they were quite amusing in trying to make a decision on what to do.

can't wait to see all the videos myself...i definately need a copy. especially of the jelly wrestling! ubblol

Joe you're an absolute legend, this weekend was so much fun, really enjoyed myself. biggrin

I've just this minute got in, and one of the first things i said to my housemates in the lounge was "right, serious proposition, who wants to see video footage shot this afternoon of women in bathing costumes wrestling in a pool of jelly". After their program finishes it and i have the pleasure of watching it in glorious widescreen, i'll see if i can compress and upload it tonight smile

I'll make a proper video of the rest when i get a chance tongue

Thwap!
