Super freak.

I am exhausted. I wound up falling asleep from like 6-8:30 with my alarm clock going off incessantly the entire time. Starbucks was the only thing keeping me from falling flat on my face at my desk. Today has not really been that productive, so I need to try and stay motivated this evening. I'm going to pilates if it kills me, damnit.

One thing I will get done quickly though is finally tell you about the show on Sunday that went superbly. Everyone did a fantastic job and it was so much fun! My tricks weren't perfect, but I made my catches and to the untrained eye they still managed to look impressive. Here's the video courtesy of nyrclooch. Pay not attention to my ridiculous ass releases... I don't know wtf was wrong with me but it's pretty much mortifying how foolish I look falling flailing to the net.

And some pictures to show how ridiculous I look...

In case you can't tell my shirt says, "If you're not part of the solution then you're part of the precipitate." :) There are more crazy pictures of everyone being a bendy circus freak, but they're all on facebook so you can look at them there if you're so inclined. I can't wait to start another IFW on Sunday. Unfortunately our whole group wasn't able to stick together, but most of us are, and most of us will at least be in the same show, so that's good. I just got so tired of working on the same old stuff, it will be so good to learn new tricks and push myself instead of worrying about perfecting these last tricks I learned which is all I've been basically doing for the past couple weeks. Also, going to start taking static classes, too. Hopefully I will appreciate static trapeze a bit more than the silks which I didn't find particularly enjoyable at all. We'll see though. Okay, time to go home so I can get some stuff done. Later, skaterz.

Hahaha, thank you. :)

That is seriously SO COOL. I know I would be scared out of my mind doing that. Awesome job :)
Nov. 12th, 2008 11:47 pm (UTC)
Thank you. :)

Dude that was the coolest video! I wish they had something like that in OK because I would be there doing it in a heartbeat. No lie.

*looks sheepish* Can I be your facebook friend?
Nov. 12th, 2008 11:46 pm (UTC)
Absolutely we can be facebook friends. Add me. :)

That is so awesome! I have tried that before, too. I couldn't get my ass to even lock onto the bar (with my knees, that is). It's ALOT harder than it looks, that's for sure. You looked awesome!
Nov. 13th, 2008 02:46 am (UTC)
It definitely is harder than it looks, and it's all about timing and some things come easier to certain people based on strength and flexibility. It definitely took me more than one class to master the knee hang! lol
Nov. 13th, 2008 01:03 am (UTC)
Wow, that was awesome. Are you naturally flexible or did you really work your splits? The one in the video was quite good.
Nov. 13th, 2008 02:41 am (UTC)
Thank you! It's sort of an optical illusion, you don't need to be able to do a split on the ground to make one look impressive in the air. My split are quite terrible and I'm not even close to naturally flexible. Someday I'll get there though... I need to start working my splits more diligently!

Nov. 13th, 2008 02:24 am (UTC)
Thank you! You were just as incredible if not more so! I'm so proud of everyone for how well they did.

And I will try a legs catch if I haven't mastered some other wonderful trick to catch. SO EXCITED FOR NEW TRICKS. I'm going to throw a fit if Johann's like, "Let's work on your swing." lol

I wasn't able to get to sleep 'til about 9am, and luckily I didn't have anything to wake up for. :)

Your trapezing looks awesome! And the falling doesn't look weird!

The shirt is awesome, too. :)
Nov. 13th, 2008 02:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :) And the falling does! I'm supposed to land flat on my back, not flail and land on my face. haha
