Pole dancing mirrors are dangerous!

Or Shann is dangerous pole dancing near mirrors. Before I get to the mirrors bit, here is the first part of our latest routine. We are still kinda working on the other one, but because we have so many new people in our class, it's easier to just do a new routine than trying to teach them ours.

So here is the routine: (I'm the one up the back with the boots on. I decided to see how they'd go!)

Clicky here

Now if you look closely (and have been paying close attention to other videos/photos), you might notice that usually there is a large mirror behind my pole. In this video, the mirror is not there. Well, the story is, I was trying to show one of the girls the handstand move that I do at the end of the video. Problem was, I was a bit too long in the legs. I ended up kicking the mirror, the top unhooked, and landed on my head. I was freaking out coz I thought I was destroying the studio, and the girls were freaking out because they thought I'd hurt myself! I felt so bad, and I've never done that before! I'd never even thought about it! The the mirror just fell down. And here I was, standing under this great big mirror, not hurt, but freaking out anyway! At least I didn't actually break the mirror, I just removed it from the wall!

I also have a nice bruise on my leg from my boots. The zip is on the inside of the leg where I climb the pole.

About Today

Checked emails
Blogged and checked blogs
Bought more floss for cross stitch
Bought bag to organise cross stitch

Want to put up my pole again coz I need to practise, but my brother has all his junk in the way. Will just have to wait for class on Thursday.

Wondering how to get away with stitching Mum's cross stitch without her knowing.

Have snazzy new cross stitch bag

Went to HobbySew at Glendale. They have lots of pretty Japanese fabrics. Too bad I'm not much of a quilter!!

Finished one of my cat xstitches, and am wondering which project to do once I've finished the pair.

Very appropriate, as "hana" means flower in Japanese. (Or "nose", now that I think about it!)

Your Element Is Air

You dislike conflict, and you've been able to rise above the angst of the world.
And when things don't go your way, you know they'll blow over quickly.

Easygoing, you tend to find joy from the simple things in life.
You roll with the punches, and as a result, your life is light and cheerful.

You find it easy to adapt to most situations, and you're an open person.
With you, what you see is what you get... and people love that!

My tarot

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Harry Potter

Well I spent most of yesterday plowing my way through the book with my friend Nay, and there was a fair bit of squealing going on! (No spoilers, I promise!) But you really have to love some of these characters!!! Definitely food for thought. I have to admit, it's left me in a weird mood. No more Harry. And considering how picky I've become with reading new books, this poses a serious problem for me.

On other news, I want to do a cross stitch for my mum's 60th. It's still a few years away but if I want to get it finished in time, I should really get started now. But I don't know which design to do.

Design 1

Design 2

I think I like the first design better, but feedback would be great!

Am really looking forward to next stitch n bitch. Bring a friend!!

Some kids need an education

I went and saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix today. Let me tell you, you can really tell the people who haven't read the books! Here are a few choice quotes I overheard today:

"What's a Gnargle?"
"Who's that?" (when Dudley was on screen)
"Is that a tornado?" (the arrival of Dementors)
"Is she a real person?" (asking about Mrs Weasley)
"Is Harry sad?" (Harry is looking out the window looking sad)

There were more, but I can't think of them right now.

Fluffy Bunny night

Hi all, Rylah was after a bit more info regarding the fluffy bunny night, so here it is.

The theme is fairies, so dressing up fairy-like or witchy. The more outrageous the better!

If you wanted to bring a small something for afterwards you can.

The rest is all surprises!

If there is anything else you would like to know, just ask. Unless it's a trade secret, then you'll have to be locked in the dungeon.

Bad blogger, yes I am

I am a bad blogger- I don't think I have ever been so long without a post!! But what is really strange is it wasn't just the fact that I hadn't done anything interesting enough to blog about, but I really wasn't in the mood. Oh well, I'm here now.

With regards to the titty, here it is:
We just won it out of a skill tester!

I got my package from the Popcorn Bear Club yesterday with my cute little cross stitch kits. There were only 3 in there but they were the people who rang from the UK to tell me the last one will be in the mail shortly!

I also decided to get going on a cross stitch last night (not the Popcorn ones) but when I went to assemble the frame I had bought, it was missing a connector! So I emailed the people back, so hopefully that will be fixed up shortly.

Exchange student Carl (USA) went home yesterday. I have to admit, one of the better farewells we've had- hardly anyone cried! The last exchange student we took to the airport was literally hysterical!

Am trying to get the Fluffy Bunny Night organised. Will be going out shortly to empty mum's spice rack (that she never uses) of spices (not for spices!) So I will leave you to ponder what we might be doing with the spice jars!

Bugger, damn

I forgot it was 3rd anniversary painting night! Oh well, spent the night dancing instead. It's been awhile, and I really enjoyed it. I learned to tango- I decided I don't like tango!

Jade's car got stolen the other night, from out the front of our house. So we are busy looking for a new one. It's kinda urgent, we need it before term starts back because we'll both be going out to schools and there is no way I can fit all the gear in my car.

So I was up till 3 am manning the phone while Mum and Jade went out looking for it. Then had to get up for 9am start. 8:30 start this morning, and another 9 am start tomorrow. So very tired.

Zzzzzzz zzzzzzzz z z z z z z zz zzzz zzzzzzzz z zzzzzzzzz z z z zzzzzzz zzzzzz zzzz z z z z z zzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzz zz zzzzzzz zz z z z z z zzzzzz zzzzzzz z z z zzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzz zzzzz zzzzzzzz z z z z z z zz z z z z z zz zzzzz zzzzzzz zzz z z z z z z z zz zzzzzzz zzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzz z z z zzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzzz zzzzzzz zzzzz zzzzzzzz z z z z z zzzz zzzzz zzzzzz zzzzzz zzzz z z z z z z zzzzzzzzz zzz zzzz z zzzzz zzzzzz z z zzzzzzz zzzzzz zzzzzz z z z z z z zzz zzzzz z z z z z zzz zzzzzzzzz z z z z z z z z z zzz zzzzzzz zzzzz z z z z z z zzzzzzzz zzzzzz zzzzzzzz zzz z z zzzzzzzzz z z z z z z z zzzzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzz z z z z z z zzz zzzzzz zzzz zzzzz zzzzz zzzzzz zzzzzz zzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzz z z z z zzzzzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzzz zzzzzz z zzz z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z zzzz zzzz z z z z z z zzzzz z z z

Random thoughts and words:

  • Why is the British exchange rate so bad??
  • My cross stitch will be late, but I got a phone call from the UK that told me so
  • Will I remember the cheerleading routine for tomorrow?
  • Will it matter?
  • Why are sad songs really getting to me lately?
  • I got a titty from a skill tester in Japan
  • I would love to do this cross stitch
  • Way windy today
  • What would it be like to be totally isolated?
  • Is 10 pm and I haven't had dinner yet
  • Might go get dinner now

I got Pashed!

Yes, I was Pashed today, as was boy of mine. We ducked into Newcastle for a quick one, that actually ended up taking longer than I thought it would. Even managed to get a few photos! But I also have to admit, not as good as I thought it would be!

The first Stitch & Bitch was amazing. We had so many people turn up- lots more than I was expecting. Though I have to admit, there was more bitching that stitching going on at times. Or maybe I was just at the naughty table! A big thanks to everyone who came along and amde it such a success. And I'll see you all next month! (Probably before then too!)

Blue moon was definitely in effect last night. What is lower than sewer humour? Because that's where we got to last night! (as demonstrated by the "cup holder joke" - ask Fairy Mary!)

I also want to say thank you for Rose Cottage, and to those of you who make it so special to me. It is more than 4 walls, it is a community, a family. A place to laugh, live, grow, learn, and to find like-minded people who are willing to lend an ear.

I have a cricket who has taken up residence in my room for the last week. Tonight he has decided to serenade me. Lovely as it is, I'm sure I could do without it!

And I have to start work at 8:30 tomorrow. Poo!
