Posted:Since I started spinning poi, I've been obsessive compulsive with object manipulation. That is kinda what this thread is for... obsessive compulsive object manipulation disorder (ocomd).

Note: this idea isn't really original, over at contactjuggling.org there is a thread you know you have occjd when... (I'll let you figure out the acronym)

You know you have ocomd when you see an object and think, "I bet I can do some cool [censored] with that!"

Posted:You know you have OCOMD when someone is playing a Britney Spears video and during part of her dance you go "hey, she just switched from together-same to split-opposite then into some kind of elliptical CAP--sweet!" (This one actually happened.)

Posted:What was she doing that WITH though SIster Eleven?
I must admit, I don't watch too many Brittany videos, so I'm a little in the dark.

Posted:lol.

You know you have ocomd when you procrastinate on final projects up until the last minute cause you're too busy playing with balls.

With that said, I should get back to work, I have 1 brochure to finish, and 2 more to do, print, and trim by 5:30.
