Hello anaya, welcome Tis true there is a bunch of us that got to the juggling club in town . . . though haven't seen Non there she is a bit on and off about when she comes along, she still hasn't seen the new place atall . . . as I promissed Anodyne I fill sort a map out . . . . hang on a tick . . .



ubblol on and off?? methinks using the present tense verb 'go' for my attendance at juggling club is a bit ambitious. I am.... slack..... i admit redface but i can't recall anything important that needs doing this thursday..... so maybe, maybe....

Hello ananya! welcome are you at cardiff uni or uwic? xorba is also in uni in cardiff, but uwic methinks. how rude of halls to give you no garden space though...

Posted:I'm in Cardiff uni, but I don't really care about all this UWIC/Cardiff rivalry. I had enough of that with the whole 'are you a red or a blue?' thing back home, when, to be really honest, who cares? Heh.

Well, I live in Talybont which is the largest student residence, and there is some green space just behind my building that I'm scoping out for doing poi in, but I'd rather drag someone to the park really. With it being the largest student residence there's always about a thousand windows for people to be looking out of and thinking 'what is that weirdo doing?' Tehee! Especially since I don't pull the most attractive faces when trying to teach myself new moves. Not to mention the whole hitting myself in the head thing! Come to think of it, the nervousness from a thousand windows watching me practise may not help the whole hitting myself in the head thing...

Posted:so everyone's going on thursday huh? nows you're all trying to make me feel like a lazy rubbish slacker, i guess i'll have to come, but feel free to bug me on thursday matty, just to make sure biggrin

i wasn't aware there was a rivalry of anykind, but then i've never been to uni in cardiff, it was more of a location/social issue, as i kind of presume that people from cardiff don't really know the people at uwic?... umm

Posted:Yeah, well I'll show up Thursday, even though I'm not going to be able to make it again for another month or so... le sigh. I'll probably be the girl standing in the corner looking a little lost and too scared to actually get my poi out of my bag.

And I think the limit of UWIC/Cardiff rivalry is seeing who can shout loudest in a club when the DJ asks 'is there anyone from UWIC/Cardiff here?' And yeah, NOn, I know like... two people from UWIC. I work with one of them and the other is a friend of a friend. More of an aquantaince really.


I went to have a little spin in the park on my way home from town today. But it was dark, which is good because I've got light-up poi, but rubbish cause I get scared being alone in parks at nighttime. I heard some woman on the phone at the complete other side of the park and decided it was time to go after like five minutes of spinning. I am a bit of a wuss. *Hangs head in shame*

Posted:That they are. I miss my wireless internet from back home, though. They make me use a cable here and it only just stretches to the bed.

And, hmmm... I'm considering making some sock poi after realising how long mine are so I may add to your ammunition supplies.

Posted:Matty - how do you loose Rossco? You must have been trying - but then that makes no sense as why would anyone try to loose the lovely Rossco? Perhaps a game of hide and seek went wrong... confused

Posted:well we haven't figured that out yet.... the only way is to get a UWICee in a room with a Cardiffee and have you fight it out.... ubblol I never suggested it was a rivalry anyway, you all keep mentioning, maybe you secretly want one! *imagines city wide rioting in cardiff uni/uwic disagreement, and i'd be the one who caused it....* eek

Juggling club is run by no fit state circus, 8-10pm thursday nights, 2, it's a hall in which to do poi, or juggle, or staff, or unicycle, or all of them with other people who are also doing those things... and that is basically that... matt posted directions somewhere up a bit, last page or the one before....
