099: a little fun outside

My roommate and I have been having fires more frequently since it’s been getting warmer out, and earlier today, I finally got around to fixing up my glow poi, so I wanted to give ’em a shot outside.  I had our friend Ryan take the first couple of shots, because it was easier than using the self-timer.  I’m really rusty at my poi – it’s been well over a year since I played with them last, and now that they’re on chains instead of in socks, the weight difference throws me off again.  But I’ll get better!

Then I found where all the fire spirits have been hiding…

After a while, I gave up and put my camera on a timer on the BBQ on the deck and ran around my yard like a six year old.  I giggled, and shouted, and screamed “Wheeeee!”

…and it looked like so much fun that my roommate joined me with the other poi.  That bit in the middle where everything stops abruptly is where we accidentally ran into each other and almost fell over.
