Tinypixie, Irinus, Tartanfairy and myself all back to London safely after FAR TOO LONG smile Very much love to them for driving, entertaining, putting up for the night, feeding, and generally being lovely to me.



Overly long winded but much needed greets post :



Delays from a crash meant after leaving at just before 1pm, by 6.30 we had only just got to Preston (yes we all spared a thought for you at that point Neon)



Many, many, MANY thanks to everyone for quiet genuinely the most amazing, lovely New Years I've ever had, bit of a shame there was some confusion on the actual night on what had happened to all the hippies and where to go, but I'm really glad I went to the castle it was lovely, couldn't have been better unless some more of you were there too.



I should have tried to catch more people after midnight on the 1st but I was under the belief I should get to bed early to go shop with Flip before being taken off home early, oops..



Meg - You're awesome, and thank you so much for organizing this and everything I know I've said that, twice?, but I mean it, I'd love to hear about more crazy movies I haven't seen, hope you did get the tepooka rent fully covered by everyone. I really did mean to do the vid diary before I left, I had thought we were going to be going to yours to see Riddik, sorry frown

I hear worrying things about me having been actually caught on camera inebriated anyway... redface



Someone please give Ian a huge hug for me I was sorry to not catch him to say bye, really appreciated him trying to teach a lazy me club tricks and generally being great.



Sandy - Remember what I said about looking after your back, sorry your stuck with those bloody hakky sacks a bit longer smile



fckinippy - I can't thank you enough for letting us all trash your place, for a whole week! you know the rest man hug



neon - you cannot resist, you will be buying a new toy. Awesome hug



Flip - Still can't beleive that livingroom genocide and stuff, and breakfast! really hope I can find some way to get to that Ireland thing and see you again hug



faberge - lovely to meet you, love the flag Poi your making, great flow



Oli, Boy g, Tim - thanks for not snoring too much, will see you again if I can avoid the Go ubbloco



Strugz, Chrono really nice to meet you guys finally and have a bit of a chat, amazing staff, fantastic to see you work out a new trick and click with it like that Chrono.



Bluecat, FluffyNapalmFairy - lovely to bump into you again, bit dazed and lost for words every time I do, oops hug



Marnie, Amilie, Natalie,Why, Paris anyone else I met/hugged/ was drunk at hug



Tinypixie - more poi please smile told you you'd get the hoop kick soon & love the new tricks smile

Irinus - you're far too modest about the mirriad of awesome & fluid skillz you have. Don't change, but don't stop smile

Tartanfairy - great to see you poi, you shouldn't deny people of such a lovely sight, and duh I must have met diz at synergy too, lol, oops smile



love you all, or, in meganeese, censored all you gay hippies, I'm going home ubblol

Nx thank you so much for offering space, inspiring me with some amazing CJ, ace poi, and generally being funny as hell and great to be around all week smile

hell you even almost made me want to learn to Juggle! hug

was thinking about missing you as we left Alex's actually, and that's jsut started me kicking myself footinmouth as I've just remembered Garthy too! ace to see you again even though for so little time, still so chuffed I got a ride in the Garthymobile.

Strugz - remember I have blackmail-worthy footage of you doing poi! tongue



Yakumo - you should've taken that booty call! tongue tongue tongue



Sandy - the dreadless hair suits you alot ubblove



Nx - I owe you dinner but if I can't be arsed I'll just buy more venison sausages! hug

Always nice to put faces to HOP names

and to see the wonderful HOP people I already know and love.

A Special thank you for

Alex- putting me up for a week
Mcp- for having a grand plan
Strugz- for kicking Meg into having a grand plan
Irinus- for driving me there

and of course

Garthy- for driving me back

I can't wait to see some of the video footage.

I'm really impressed with the houses in Edinburgh, solid stone construction and high ceilings. Meg, your practise room is awesome.

'Tis alright, When I saw you two unconcious and drooling on a chair in the kitchen I thought I NEEDED a picture! ubblol

But alas in the 10 seconds it took to go and get my camera some inconsiderate bugger woke you up... Dammit. DENIED! angry

Though I DID get 2 minutes of footage of Strugz poi-ing, I'm sure he was at it for at least 10mins - letting the side down! wink



Yup Meg was wrapped in her duvet like a warm toasty gay cinnimon bun when we left her...

Now that everyone has left my house, yeah it was pretty good. I didn't actually get much spinning done, the curse of the host I think. But other than that... it was rocking. Much strugz were taken, and many new things learned, or at least, learned about.

I could make nice comments like: Thanks to drugz for the idea and the initial impetus, as well as driving will up here, and being generally a good laugh, will for being cool and awesome at contact, yakumo for being hilarious loved up, and enjoying it so much, mike for giving me a massage and putting up with me in a subpar mental state, neon was being straight, ian for the practise room and putting up with my incompetent policing of the rules, sandy for being a computer geek too and being cool, t&b for doing ridiculous contact also, tommy for teaching me to juggle staffs, bluecat for teaching me stuff and just being around so I could hang out with him again, ros for her immense handstands eek, tiny girl for her insane hoopig skillz with hoops tinyer than should be possible, matt for his immense hacky skills, evan for being uber graceful, alex for being the most posey characterful spinner I've seen, nx for being my partner in cynicism, lisa for putting up with me an wiggling doubles, nick for his fire whip, andy for coming along and learning contact, marnie for smooooooth small doubles spinning, aidan for his iron staff style, and amelie for being cool and putting up with french jibes. and everyone who stayed at my flat for their awesome cooking and cleaning up afterwards skillz. As well as tree, goz, kenn and jem for letting us use tepooka's space. (and rob too)

but only meg 2 would say such things. Screw that. meg 1 would say: thank god I finally managed to get the smelly hippies out of my house.

"love you all, or, in meganeese, [censored] all you gay hippies, I'm going home "

ubblol ubblol ubblol ubblol ubblol

plans are afoot to never do that again before next new year. Phew, back to relaxing in bed for me... work tomorrow... eurghhhhh.

thank god my holiday was good!

Phew, now that I've recovered from the drive back it's time to say thanks to everyone for everything. Special thanks to

Meg (obviously)
Strugz (working on those angel rolls)
Alex (for putting us up) + residents of the Alex flat
Neon (for being... well... Neon)

and

TinyPixie, TartanFairy and Matt for keeping me awake, especially Yakumo for constantly reminding us how lucky we were to be experiencing the last few days (and ninja skillz).

Big hugs to everyone, if you're now on a post-party downer, go look up ground squirrels on G images.
