Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view
Holy crap! He's got a point, when was the last time I stood up in public and did my best to look silly?
The entry inspired me, so tonight I went to the piazza to mess around with my juggling equipment. I went on my own and played around for a bit. Okay so it was obviously quieter than in term tie, but here are a few things you need to know about me:
- I'm hopelessly shy, so don't like to do too much to attract attention
- I'm ridiculously self-conscious, I'm always convinced people are looking at me funny, on this occasion they probably were!
- I'm only average at juggling, unlike other members of the society who are frankly brilliant and juggle in public all the time.
This is me wildly flailing my arms trying to spin up my diabolo which is bright pink and not beige, from a distance it would probably have looked like some twit playing air drums with a mad pink thing leaping around in front of him
At this point one of my flatmates came by, "What you doing Mike?" says he. "Diabolo!" I respond with great pride, "I thought I'd come out here and play for a bit". "Oh is there a juggling meeting tonight?" he asks. "er… no I just thought I'd come out." By the look on his face my flatmate clearly thought I was strange. Mission accomplished.
This is me playing with my LED balls. Funky aren't they? As you can see in the picture one is blue (thats not political btw), one is red (that is, but in an old not new sense) and the other is white, all are not beige.
I wouldn't have done that unless Mr. Carter had lit a firework under everyone's arse. I also had some rings with me, which are fluorescent yellow, fluorescent orange and fluoresent pink, and again all are not beige, unfortunately there was a breeze which made it impossible to get a good photo, but I tried my best and looked stupid in the process. What's more I was wearing a purple and black hat, both those colours are not beige too.
I hope that's helped the cause. Or maybe I've just undermined it by looking a twat…
