Posted:Ooookay, so I did it!

I finally lit my poi up!

*jumps about and glomps everyone*

It was SO much fun! Amazing, feeling the fire spinning around you, with the dull roar in your ears, friends on the side, cheering you on! A truly wonderful feeling! smile

Now I'm really tired, drained, but so happy and pleased. ^_^

No mishaps occured, just had to get into it! The problem was, my wicks were monkey fist's on fairly long chains, so they were *so* heavey (to my friends and I at least) and long... Meaning slow moving. But then, I used my friend's, which were much shorter, and lighter, and got fairly into it ^_^

But just doing simple things on fire was good enough smile Opens up a whole new world to me :d Can't wait until Sunday to light up again!!

*glomps everyone more!*

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.
