Never hold your farts in! They travel up your spine, go into your brain and that's where shitty idea's come from.

Posted:Laya don't feel old hun! I did my first fire spin when I was 37, last year, and it was a blast. Age has nothing to do with it! It all to do with the roar of the flame, the warmth, the pretty flame and the motion. Enjoy it, but play safely. hug

Pffft!! You're just a baby! 27 is no age at all. If I make it to 75 and I'm still spinning I'll be happy. Then I'll be telling all those youngsters in their 20 what old is! hug

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:i've got two tubecores sitting in my toybag, just itching to be used

i think i might go crazy with waiting. if the rentals dont let me use them this weekend, i might cry. they say that they want to see it done by somebody who knows what they're doing first. yet, they've seen me spin. i'm definately good enough, and i'm not going to do anything stupid with them
