Posted:Hello All,

I am sat here at work and am so very, very bored!! frown I have an office to myself, which for the most part is great. No one here has a clue what poi is, and they've started to put fences up in my local park ready for the balloon festival. umm On Friday I was attacked by a dog for my poi too!! I wasn't bitten, but it wasn't nice & his owner didn't seem all that bothered. The dog one incidentally and ran off leaving me with 1 poi!

Ok I feel better for that - hope you all have a terrific day.

Posted:What is poi?

Hmmm, that's a tough one.

Think Mark McGhee would know the answer, he is soooo wonderful.

Posted:I did forget "rant" didn't I? Apologies!!

Well I guess I could do less damage to myself with 1 poi... Doesn't look as good as 2 though! That said I don't look great with 2 yet!!

Thank you all for listening to me rant - I feel much better!

Oh I also have to work till 19:00 tonight, but this serves me right for avoid this job for nearly 2 weeks and skiving off early :o/

Posted:I have 3 Poi!

But I only use 2 at a time, the 3rd is a spare, in acse one of my other Poi gets lost or damaged.

Once when I was at the beach a kid in a Coldplay T-shirt tried to set fire to one of my Poi, and it wasn't even a fire Poi, just a regular one. I was lucky enough to notice it before any serious damage was done, but now I always make sure to keep an extra Poi just in case.

If I'd had to do Guilfest last year missing my Poi I don't know what I would have done

We could call it "Don't Poi with my emotions"

Not likely to find a match then is he/she?

Anyone know the gender of Poi for that matter?

I'm sure he's gone to a better place.

Another great time filler if you're still bored at work is to try and PM anyone you see logged in on HoP while you're at work. Just say hi and ask some random questions. You'll be surprised how many random people you can get into PM conversations with at once!

It's also challenging trying to get your PMs through to everyone before they log off. But only say pleasant things in PMs, some people don't seem to like them so much, or think it's a bit wierd.

Posted:hmm i think that naming the gender of poi would have to be a highly stereotypical act, because you know the fluffy sparkly pink one might just want to be a boy, even better can they get gender re ajustments?

Posted:He's currently in a filter tips box waiting to go to Didcot to be buried tomorrow (I don't have a garden). I don't know how I'm going to break the news to his sisters... (They're hamsters - but were very fond of him). I feel so guilty that I may have done something to hurt him frown, his brother decided to comit suicide about a year ago by jumping out of the tank... am I bad mother??

Yeah sickspin, I think it would be highly unfair to assume all pink poi are female... I don't see why they couldn't get gender re adjustments, although i think they would need to have a course of councelling first to make sure they really thought it was the best course of action...
