Posted:The most awesome thing just happened



My boss came up to me and said that he had decided to take up firetwirling, and that he had found this wicked site that does firetwirling lessons... and I just kinda stared at him all like... WTF??

and clicked on hop minimised on my screen... and he was all like "yup thats the site..."

THIS IS MY BOSS!!! wooooo hooooo I know have a funkster other than burnt_one and arsn to discuss fire twirling with at work

The funny thing is that since we preformed at work sooo many people have started to take it up... cool huh?

do you find that you spread the fire bug?? biggrin

Posted:If only...
My workplace is full of miserable buggers and over-keen health and safety officials who find the mere concept of spinning even a bean bag intolerable.

Managed to introduce a bunch of students to the concept of staff using ranging poles last week though.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.
