You probably meant to say 'LOST *in* space' there.

The show was good, though one of the comperes was a tosser, turning up in
his 'sports' car trying to impress the girlies.

ooh that's a point - I've still not bothered to put mine online. Will stick
them up tonight. I didn't take many, and I don't think there's any
juggling in them!

It was a nice try, turning up in a sports car so old that some, never
having seen one before, might think it was Italian. Didn't work for me.
Didn't old Edie drive one just like that but with a modified bonnet in "
Last of the Summer Wine?" ;-)

ah, but that was just the beginning of the sweavo charm offensive. later
on that night there was a combination of the "check out my sexy car, plus
the old. i am injured, nurse me" taking place. it was a joy to behold.
the sweavo in action.

it was a smashing day. relaxed in all the right places.

i found a nice corner. close walls and smooth floor to play bouncy.

the food was cheap and the after festy party was good

i was happy.

Not bad for my first UK fest...not a bad way to spend my B'day either ;)

Of course, I should probably have been more (inter)active...speaking of
which, does that club-hat game have a name?!

Oh, and as always, apart from the fun of being there, seeing the scarily
good jugglers wasn't bad either :) Now I have the EBJ I'll...well, ok, I
doubt I'll get that good ;)

Thanks for organising it,

I've spent my last 5 or so birthdays at chocfests and can thoroughly
recomend it as a birthday destination...

Mind you, they were all in january and at the old venue so I don't
know if they count. Unfortunately I couldn't go to CF this year due to
other arrangements, which was a shame.

clubs? as hats? Thats most likely "Gandini Gladiators" then. Always a
classic.

I've always found that meeting them, talking to them and realising that
they're normal people too isn't bad either :)

Wishing he could have been there this year.

the name of the balance is "crown of thorns" the name of the game is
"Gandini Gladiators' in honour of the slow motion dance one has to do to
not loose the balance and cahse people.

It was *designed* by an italian, if that's any help. As to the "old", show
some respect! It's not too old to clip you round the ear, young fella me
lad. Or something.

Designed by an Italian? On a fag packet in between servings of the
spaghetti at the "O So Low Mio" Italian restaurant cum chip shop? Turn it
over, the Fiat 500 plans are on the other side.
PS gear oil, not grease in the trunnions or else the front wheels will fall
off.

All the best cars are fag packet designs.

Mini: fagpacket.
Metro: designed by a commitee headed by the then Lady Diana Spencer.

I rest my case.

Bugger, that explains it! I resorted to toothpaste and bogeys in the end.
They're not going anywhere now.
