Posted:Are non HoPpers not called Civillians?

Or is that just non-spinners.

Dom caused a stir in the London Poi scene by dating a civillian.

Posted:o - and juxtaposition. throw that one in whenever I get the chance!!

okay, so miss Flynt - now that we have a slew of tantalising literary morsels, I hereby challenge you (if you have the time) to create a short story in which all these words are used.

what say you?

Posted:yay!!! This will be great to read.

Fair enough re: medical terminology, but I'd like to see you do your best to include:

Trichotelomania (compulsive pulling of ones own hair)

So, what do you think - no more words after this to be included in story, although people still welcome to post their favourite random blatherings?
