WeeJ
I used to do gymnastics back when I was in school as a hobby. Well, I live right next door to a sports hall and I've enquired about some classes to give it another go.

I haven't done it for years and my ankle may complain a bit (for those peeps who don't know, I had an operation last year and I've now got 5 screws and a bar thing in my ankle. Sexy smile.gif ), but I'd quite like to try again.

Bit worried about about prancing about in a leotard in front of a bunch of strange people though. I though you lot might make light of it and persuade me to go.
You know, thats what friends are for. To make you dance about and look like a prat. Get to it then! biggrin.gif laugh.gif
Queenie
Yay!!! WeeJ do gymnastics!! laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif You'll become bendy blink.gif unsure.gif That has to be a good thing... maybe flexible is a better word! An it might strengthen your ankle!? Which would be good!

If you enjoyed gymnastics before and want to do it now whats stopping you!? If people laugh at you... laugh at them huh.gif

*gets pom poms and jumps up an down* GO WeeJ GO!!

What I suggest is you get a webcam, and prance about in a leotard in front of us, that way you get used to it.

Oh yeah, tell me the story about the 5 screws and a bar one more time please? rawr!
Pab
oy, weej. Go do some gymnastics ...

Once upon a time, WeeJ got drunk at a gig, ran across a large dance floor and leaped onto her unsuspecting boyfriend.
Doing this, WeeJ broke her ankle rather badly and then spent a few days in hospital in the same ward as an insane, catheter shaking old lady. WeeJ then woke up with lumpy metal things in her ankle and now has an ugly scar for ever and ever. The end smile.gif

To cut a short story even shorter, I can't tip toe very well now. My ankle doesn't point properly.
Cath Sparrow
Go WeeJ! and as for the ankle just take easy on it work up to the stuff which might bother it and tell the instructer who if there any good will know how to help you deel with it! biggrin.gif So GO WEEJ!!!!
WeeJ
And another thing, what if all the people there are really good and I turn up looking like a big, clumsy huffer?
What if I really do have to wear a leotard and and it makes me look like I'm stuffed into a condom?
What if I try to work on the springboard again and nut the box?
What if I finally learn how to flip and then land on someone smaller than me?

There are so many things that can go wrong! ARRGGH!!!!
Cath Sparrow
Forget the what if's ph34r.gif and GO WEEJ!!!!!! You know you'll regret it if you don't dry.gif

My brother's got bits of metal in his ankle and knee after a motorbike accident but it don't stop him doing things - granted he does not wear a leotard!! You go Weej!! biggrin.gif

Weej, if you're not gonna wear a leotard what are you gonna wear?? If if you actually are gonna wear one are you getting a webcam as suggested earlier by Oni....? (I'm only asking cos enquiring minds need to know and all that)
WeeJ
I thought about a web cam but they seemed way too expensive at the time. Plus, I wouldn't use it much.
franken-sarah
Not even to show off your new found "bendiness" (I think Queenie owns that word!), okay, your new found flexibility?? wink.gif

WeeJ
I'll consider it tongue.gif Have to see what this months pay cheque has in it tongue.gif
franken-sarah
Cool! Think you should go for the gymnastics thing though, I keep thinking about horse-riding which I used to love but haven't done for years now... perhaps I should get off my butt and do something about that seeing as you're all motivated and stuff - these things rub off you know!! smile.gif
WeeJ
I'll do it if you will smile.gif
My sister has said she'll come along to the first session for a bit of moral support which is nice smile.gif
franken-sarah
Aw, that's sweet, I wish I had some moral support - ah, well, I guess a kick up the ass to get me on my merry way will have to do!! What am I saying - I have got moral support! That's a deal then, I'll do it if you will!! *shakes Weej's hand then hugs her* biggrin.gif

Giving us cookies is a brilliant idea - especially the non-calorific variety!! If you're in Fife you're just across the water from me (cue for Sisters of Mercy track!!), I live in Falkirk!! laugh.gif

You owe it to your boyfriend to be as bendy as possible. Feet behind the head, splits and everything. Trust me on this.

And surely being able to backflip off tables in beer gardens during the summer is worth a bit of leotardage? Christ, I'd wear a leotard if it learnt me how to do that.

I got told I was very flexible by the lovely girlie at the gym. Unfortunately, we weren't up to anything rude dry.gif Does help *cough* in certain *cough* situations wink.gif

And if anyone is being entertained by poll-dancing WeeJ it's ME! Her e-wife so hands off!!! tongue.gif
WeeJ
Well, the gym lady finally returned my call.
Turns out, they're pretty advanced at this place so I'm not sure if I'm going to fit in with my skill level. Still, she told me to drop by tonight to have a chat which can't hurt. I'll let you know what happens smile.gif

Will have to remain in said darkened room for a touch longer now!! Actually will for-go dark room for a spell and watch Living With The Enemy on UK Horizons - looking for inspiration for a controversial threat! biggrin.gif

Hmm, not sure that that's an excuse, even with the whole pointy nips in skintight lycra in cold weather reason thrown into the mix. And it's not like they jump over stuff outside, is it now?

pfft.

Ha! I escaped from darkened room!! tongue.gif

Weej, you lovely little pole-dancing, lycra clad creature you, don't tell me a little chilly weather (and the possibility of poking someones eye out!) put you off of going!! Now Queenie, Cath and I can't play cheerleaders and Jonman, Narth and probably most of the others that have read this thread will be disappointed on a leotard wearing level!! wink.gif
WeeJ
Nah, it was more the fact that they didn't do any kind of beginers lever. They'd all be doing crazy back flips and there wqould be me, doing gambole rolls across the floor unsure.gif
