Posted:This is going to sound really stuck up and I'll probably get flamed but it's something that's been on my mind for a while.

After spending a weekend at clapham or even just a day down in brixton I find that when I go back to my non juggling/spinny friends that things sometimes get a little strained. Jokes that would have gone on for hours with juggly people get a giggle then drop to the ground, people can't catch (not that jugglers can catch things anyway), if I go to turn the key in someone to make them work again I just get a weird look, and the energy and vitality that I get from the whole scene is missing, and they have green rizzla which is just terrible.
I still love my friends and love to hang out with them but sometimes it's a bit of a struggle for the first day back in "normal" life.
and althougth I know it's sacralige to try and do ping/pong outside of the scene I've tried to teach some friends of mine becuase it just makes life easier and no one gets it.

I know this sounds really moany and no I don't think I'm somehow better than my friends now. I just feel that I've met so many cool people not one of whom I don't like since becoming a fire spinner that it's weird meeting people who don't have the same kind of outlook.
there's not really a point to this but it's been kind of freaking me out that it takes a while to connect with my other friends now.

annoying isn't it.

I heard the same, that green are between red and blue. I think they just plain suck, green Swan is the way forward.

I live in a world of infinite possibilities.
