Stacey - your sock poi are way to heavy.

Dave - what ones did you buy. the only socks i have ever paid for are the white socks from here. there nice to use but a little to bouncy.

adz - when you guys came to Cardiff (with gums and gizmo and that) same field but the top end. we span in a car park ich was good as the field was boggy. Ryan and his misses cam down as well. plus little jess and her mum were spinning and juggling with us and not forgetting tom the dog.

next weekend I'm busy but the weekend after that i could probably meet for a few hours. i would recommend driving down as it will be better for you as its a bit of a walk from the station.

so next meet is the 17th at poncana fields at the car park. which shall further been known as cardiffs meet spot.

whats everyone up to. I'm in uni on my lunch. I'm falling a sleep. been a weird weekend. sat was good but yesterday my grampy was having epileptic fits all day. so had to sort that out.



They are just like the ones you have.

I'm up for the 17th and there is no way I am walking again saying that I probably will.

I am procrastinating in work whilst writing up my disseration, going over a few finer points prior to a meeting with my lecturer on Thursday, hope to hand it in, in May.

Posted:Dave: ah, ok then, you should have said UV in the beginning then! lol and if you have money to burn then screw burning it and give it to me! trying to pay for download tickets and 450 for prom outfit... so can't afford it! lol

Mike: he is a beginner, dont be encouraging him to start fire yet! lol we actually would like him to survive long enough to learn stuff! haha

Pitman: no they aren't! lol blame NOn, i used hers first so got used to the weight, although think mine are a bit heavier than hers :s the other ones that i have are a lot lighter anyways.

the 17th is weekend after next?? i should be able to make it, anyone feel like walking from town with me, since i can't drive n all :s

i'm not up to much, should be revising history but couldnt be bothered so on here instead biggrin ekk bout your grapmy, hope he is ok now?? i dont like people haviong fits, my neighbour has them all the time and her 3 kids are really young, so its scares them a lot. not nice.

Posted:ummm... HoP's on the t'internet mike wink and i'm sure there were cameras... even though it was pissing it down... i just don't remember who had them...

stacey> for juggling balls, route one (morgan arcade) cardiff games (duke st arcade) cheapo ones in the toy shop in royal arcade, or harpers bazaar or whatever it's called in queen street arcade/natural world. Juggling balls should be easy it's the other stuff like poi etc that's tricky to find.

hmm.. 'k... well they're all in arcades which should narrow it down for you, look for toy shops and skate shops, you will probably happen upon one for them, or at least a juggling ball somewhere... smile

i don't get why there is any doubt about play, unless you have something hugely important already planned for that weekend, it is without a doubt worth it and probably the cheapest festy you will go to, ever again, so money shouldnae be an issue either... do it...

Posted:I know what you mean emogirl. Unless I manage to meet some of you before then and can get my mate to come along (because she can cook wink. ). I'm working on it...trust me.



I will only not go if I definately can't because I'm not missing out on eating free chocolate! And of course finally meeting poi people which I have been trying to do for a year, and I'm v sorry but I can't do Saturdays so listen to me and make it Sunday!!!...and preferably cardiff in a place im not likely to get too lost.



I'm pretty good at getting lost. Got lost in Heath yesterday and managed to go in the staff lifts by mistake. I had to ask 5 people to find out where I was going. And wow is there a lot of students walking around there!



Have fun on Sat tho, think of me, surrounded by cakes I can't eat, serving people who don't know the difference between a belgian bun and a danish pastry...people!



Oh yes, before I forget, I've managed to squeeze a poi session into my guide unit for their circus skills badge, so any good teaching info would be useful. I know from experience that I'm a terrible teacher tongue

Ooo and a flag saying 'land of mike' or summat. i'm still pursuading my mate to come, coz it would be lonely in a tent by meself however many people there are in tents nearby. If you do an italian evening you've got to do the accent and dress up with a moustache and all wink.

and yes you were all in the pub tut tut. lol
