1. I bought 4 pairs of the same hockey shoes- a new pair everytime each pair wore out, first to wear for field hockey, but they became walkabout shoes. They've now stopped making them.
2. I've got a metal thingie thing holding the back of my laptop screen up cos the screen hinge is broken.
3. I ubblove Amina- experimental girl quartet who I first saw touring with Sigur Ros.
4. I've listened to Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap for 3 and a half hours in a row one day. Don't know how it happened.
5. I almost drowned when I was somewhere between the ages of 4 and 6. I was in an inflatable float (the one round your chest- your arms keep you in it) in the sea at a family outing. I slipped through and down. My eyes were open and I saw hundreds of white bubbles against brown water. Was down for a while and a hand eventually found me and pulled be back up to the surface. Screaming adults were everywhere and I was choking water. Sometimes I remember today could have never happened.
6. I had a WWF (world wildlife fund) plush blue whale as a kid. I thought it was a shark so I named it Sharky. Didn't realise it was a blue whale til I was in my teens.
7. I once had someone write 'I love Ryan' in blood on the back of an 8 by 10 photograph of Sheryl Crow and me (I won backstage passes), when a 3 day fling ended. Spun me out and if not for the taxi driver I had the chance to talk to after (on the way to a friend's chalet), I would have gone mad.
8. My favourite food dish as a kid went from chicken noodle soup to spaghetti bolognese, to nasi biryani, to satay ayam (which is a dish of lemon grass/candlenut/chilli oven roasted chicken pieces) with rice. Haven't had it for a while.
9. I know what a cornichon is, and also how to make steak tartare.
10. I've crawled into a cave not much more than 50cm at the entrance, and 1 metre high inside, just to see tiny albino bats.
11. I've been kicked out of an English class in high school before. The teacher told me if I wasn't interested, just go to the canteen and do your own thing. I thought she didn't know how to teach, so thought yeah why not. I was in the canteen for the whole of 10 minutes before the principal (who used to be a prison warden) came out and brought me back to the class and asked wtf was going on. That same principal on another occasion came into my class to check everyone had a neat haircut. My fringe was deemed too long and he pulled it down and cut it there and then.
12. I've lived on my own for two years when I was 16.
13. When I was a kid, I was so poor, going to school I had to paint my feet white and tie my toes together. Well not really. Just checking to see if you were paying attention. I do things like that.
14. The most beautiful dream I've ever had was holding someone's hand, shoulder to shoulder, sitting at a breakwater during a sunset. I didn't know who it was, I couldn't see a face, and nothing actually happened.. we were just -being-.
15. If I won the lottery, the first thing I'd do is groceries.
16. My favourite Eddie Izzard phrase is 'I'm covered in beees!'
17. I don't like individual colours as much as I like colour combinations. Blue, white, grey and black, for example, instead of blue.
18. The most beautiful experience I've had in my life happened somewhere in the past year. Makes me wonder what I've been doing the earlier years of my life, and what on earth I'll do with the rest of it.
19. I've got a calendar note in my phone which just says 'be a good person with a good attitude'. Came from somewhere in Vanilla Sky. I went to the red carpet gala premiere, which was attended by Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz.
20. During the course of this entry, I've listened to Skakka, Hemipode, Fjarskanistan and Blskjr by Amina, off Animamina several times, followed by At the Hop by Devendra Banhart, and I'm rounding this up on Tori Amos' Your Cloud.

Thanks smile

1) My day started with walking to work only to discover that the block around City Hall (where I work) was cordoned off due to a bomb threat and a suspicious package found in the building. Helicopters. Police. What a way to start the day!

2) After inquiring about the situation and being informed the building would be closed for 2 hours at least, I went swimming before coming in to work.

3) Though I enjoy working in the arts, I'm sick of being a bureaucrat but am uncertain what I want to do next.

4) I'm preparing a solo performance combining storytelling, spoken word and ritual with poi, hoop and contact juggling. The show goes up in October and I'm nervous and excited in equal measure.

5) I love my new LED hoops.

6) I love the costume for my show.

7) I love San Francisco, but living here is so expensive. I'm frustrated that on my salary I could buy a house pretty much anywhere else in the country (except maybe Manhattan) but here it's out of the question.

8) I spent the past weekend (an American holiday) at a cabin in the mountains outside Lake Tahoe with a group of close friends and we spent a good portion of the weekend in altered states, playing with poi and balls and hoops and meteors and swords. It was lovely.

9) During the weekend, it was discovered that I am a little poi tree. (note: altered states wink).

10) My closest friends are more my family than my actual blood relations.

11) I feel grateful & blessed for the friends and community I have in my life.

12) During the weekend, we went to a casino buffet and I ate soooo much prime rib. It made me very happy.

13) While at the casino I played craps for the very first time.

14) I really don't like gambling or casinos though I like the buffets.

15) Despite my dislike of casinos, I want to go to Las Vegas to see the Cirque du Soleil productions there.

16) This year will be my third Burning Man.

17) I have been with my partner for 13 years. He is family and I love him, but sometimes I wonder if we're still a couple only out of habit.

18) I considered taking an exciting new job in Baltimore because of items 3 & 7 on this list but decided not to go for it because of items 4, 10 & 11.

19) Making that decision revealed to me what it is that I truly value in life.

20) I am constantly amazed at all the different ways picking up poi has changed my life.

taken out of context i must seem so strange
