Posted:What's 2bags doing in Newbury? Wasn't he supposed to be on his way to India?

Well, I guess coming from Bristol, Newbury is on the way to India but then driving back to BJC surely is a bit of a detour?

Posted:Bristol was awesome, at least what i remember of it was!

Im glad im a student, life on campus is much less of a come down from convention world than having to go back to a job or something equally as scary from the real world!

Is it right that im still waiting to fall over guy ropes or someones misplaced staff when i walk around at night?

Posted:Mmmm... Brizzle...

I'm a bit more awake now. (Yes, it did take me this long to get back to reality)

Highlights:

Performing Multiball in the show in front of the people that have really inspired me.
Playing Monkey for Skin ups at backgammon. What is it now? 3-1?
Drew + Multiball = Jaw on the floor.
Meeting Dimitri
Mithi at BrJC!
Balloon Snakes
Ronan's stage ball poi
Sandy's performance.
Rob cat's performance (Thanks for the lift, dude!)
Funk and Disco outside by the bar ubblove
HoP Hugs and cuddles (Truly the best)

SOOOOO much more... but I've slept many times since then. Bristol = the best convention of the year. awesome fun, both before and after the Kev Meridian.

So, Who filmed my routine, then? wink
