As the mess of stories concerning the last weekend slowly surface, it becomes increasingly clear that the central theme of these weekends is not actually spinning whatsoever; rather it is sex. Maybe I'm putting that too baldly, but the heady mess of tension that seems to have been running like an undercurrent through the course of the last weekend (which completely passed me by at the time) must surely have been its defining focus.

Therefore it is only right that the next weekend should be set over Valentine's day. If the last one was sordid and confused... let's see what new heights we can achieve with this one. Forget Jennifer Steele - I'm going to book a priest for the duration, and see what happens...

For those of you who didn't make the last weekend, but have maybe seen the jelly wrestling video... I'm not being entirely serious. Though we may never know quite how many clandestine pairings took place during those brief hours of darkness... we did also do quite a lot of spinning. Essentially, the format for the weekend is this - loads of spinners turn up during the course of the week, with the majority arriving on Friday (that'll be Friday the 13th - oh dear!), and then stay for the weekend. We go and spin in the park nearby, or head up to the sports hall to spin indoors to music (with loads of toys - balance bars, crash mats and trampolines!). Apart from that, there are missions, baked goods, laptops, videos, vegetarian food and the opportunity to get to know a whole load of the other HOPers. And 'get to know' can be as euphamistic as you like...

As per usual, I'll post more details nearer the time... blah di blah, see the other threads for info if you want it now. The major change this time is that I will be asking everyone for a fiver - this will go to buying all the paraffin and renting the sports hall and swimming pool, and if there's any spare it's earmarked for the Get Pounce To Kent Fund, on which we're still about 120 short.

Quite how we're going to beat the jelly wrestling is a bit of a mystery, however. We need some madcap scheme, preferably one both dangerous and illegal, so if you have any suggestions please post them below.

And come down for the weekend, all of you. It'll be a riot.

hug

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.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Quick note to everyone who was in attendance, I'm a lot happier now. Those who care will be glad to hear it, those who don't, well, they'll just plain know I guess. wink I just wish I'd had my new hair then, I'd have looked all proper goth and moody! wink

So it was Julie that ran off with my cell phone charger - having trouble tracking it, as supposedly Joe has it according to originalsmit, but Joe doesn't know what I'm talking about...

As far the LED units I had, here is a link for them

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

ubblol ubblol ubblol

That is exactly what I did. You might also consider getting one for your bicycle when you ride at night (which would obviously require a different color than for scuba diving)!

Cunning. Very cunning scheme you have cooked up there. Yup. I like it. Now I need to take up scuba and buy a bike in order to justify buying two glowy things... which would be more expensive than just buying them... hmm, y'know, it's a good scheme but not very universal wink

Well, folks, a week has gone by and things are returning to normal down in Sevenoaks - the house is back to normal, I'm back to normal, my housemates are back to normal... well, Dave was almost normal again, but Ben and Frodo took him out to Fabric last night and made him strange again.

Thank you all for coming. Another cracking weekend.

Much love to everyone.
