Posted:learning with glowsticks + beamers, which weigh more than you're used to + music that gets you really pumped up and makes you want to go fast like you usually do = big bump over left eye + heaaaaadaaaache.

funny thing.. This Stella girl thats Paddy's cousin or something looks JUST like you... From afar anyways. I walked into this sunday beach party and I was in shock. "OMG!! Its Lindsey!! WTF is she doing in Toronto!?!?" Especially cause she was spinning poi!

and she's a natural talent like you too.

Posted:beamers + alcohol.....

yeah, i dunno what i was thinking when i tried that one. i slunk back to my chair and nursed the vodka some more

actually, the whack in the head didn't hurt. it was the whack in the chest that made me quietly fade into teh background....

Posted:I'll take five hits with a burning poi over a single tap with a beamer. OWWWWW!!!!

I saw a friend hit himself in the nuts with two beamers (he screwed up a buterfly). That had him on the ground for about 15 minutes and he didn't walk right all day.

Posted:The bump's gone now but it still hurts to move my eyebrows. No funny faces from we for at least a week, I'll have to leave it up to these guys...---> Look at them eyebrows fly~!

I didn't learn my lesson either, on tuesday I a little leap and smacked myself right on top of the head...got *another* bump now. At this rate I'll never be rid of the bump, it'll just migrate around my body until I
a) stop poi
b) die
I'm rooting for b.

BamBam, I remember those bruises, poor girl, is that why you're getting more into poi and contact

Posted:Comet-tail poi while under the influence of your favorite intoxicant is a wonderful idea.

Beaming poi is a bad idea. Ow.

Burning poi is a terrible idea. It's not that you might hit yourself, we do that sober. Tt's that you won't be as able to deal with it if something goes wrong and something else catches on fire.
