Five Bag Juggling Practice

I made these beanbags with balloons and rice. Not only five balls in the frame, but five in the air at the same time. Self-portrait.


If memory serves me right these are Juggle Bug clubs. I almost ordered some Henry's, but I decided I don't earn enough money juggling to justify the cost at this point.
Today I was practicing right hand flats. I totally suck at left hand flats, but as soon as I feel 'unrusty' I'll start working on left hand flats so I can do a full cascade with all flats.

Haskett Library park photos

These photos were taken at the park by the Haskett Library in Anaheim CA. I only took my batons and my flower sticks with me so I could focus on just those two things.
I absolutely hate being this fat, but I'm not going to get any thinner sitting on my couch and pouting.

Ugh some people just don't get it

I was in such a good mood when I got to the park when this India(n) man comes up to me. He starts asking me all these questions...
Him: What are you doing.
Me: Getting some fun exercise
Him: Are your children all grown up (now how did he know I had children?_
Me: Yes
Him: Well are they in college?
Me: No, one already graduated and one is married and expecting a child.

By now this is really getting on my nerves.
So then he says Is your husband at work?
So I say yes.(I'm divorced but I sure wasn't going to tell this guy anything else).
And he says, "And you are just here doing this?"
So I say, "He's at his job, and I'm at mine.I have to practice during the week so I can do shows on the weekend."
Well, that totally confuses him. And things just kind of went downhill from there.
Finally I just turned my back on him and he left. But that was the end of my good mood. What the hell is wrong with people? And more to the point, why can't I just say, "Sorry, I don't give strangers personal information." That would have been rude but would have nipped it in the bud.

Now I'm using the library computer. I should have practiced longer, but I'm not in the mood now.

Balancing clubs/pins

I'm best at balancing things on my nose, but tonight I decided to work on forehead and chin balancing. Here are the best photos from my practice session tonight. The best way to learn is in a still room with a peacock feather.

3 clubs

I decided I better get off my duff and practice some juggling at the park before the 3 rainstorms heading our way hit. Even so the park was still soggy from the morning mist. My goal today was do take self-portraits doing 3 clubs. So here are the best photos from my little experiment.
