Finding shapes in clouds

Submitted by maria on Thu, 2008-09-11 15:45

On my way to school I sometime imagine what it would be like to be rich. Sometimes I imagine that people are throwing money at me. I also notice yellow brick walls and also the low clouds in the sky. Once I saw a cloud above my house that was like a big volcano with clouds puffing out of the top.
So my move for Peckham street training is to look for different shapes in the clouds.

My move is to play a tune on my mobile phone called Waterwall by Chris Brown. People could dance to it if they wanted.

Open top tourist bus ball

find the route of the open top tourist buses, they pass by aldgate roundabout, west side. best to have a few trainers on either side of the road and at the intersection. Throw a ball to some one sitting on the top deck of a tourist bus, you might have to yell at them to throw it back.

street training Sunday 31st August

Street training yesterday had a good turn out despite the weather 10 people came! They received medals for turning up. Again amazingly everyone wanted to try the insane floor diving technique, the people who just kind of awkwardly lay down were the best really, though a strapping canadian bloke glided a very long way, Imogen reckoned that Gethan would give him a runn for his money though. (a tutorial for those of you who haven't tried it yet)

How to be joyful

Submitted by Lottie on Thu, 2008-09-04 07:57

Who said this? "I like to keep myself sane by navigating my way home from the public house as 'the crow would fly''..ignoring bourgois notions of private property and disregarding the imposition of road-planning as a technology that 'forces' the user to comply with the rules as they are encountered..instead I like scaling as many fences and walls whilst also navigating as much garden furniture/security guards/barbed wire and dogs as possible...either that or I simply enjoy pushing commuters in front of trains."

"There was a five year old with a scooter on the bus it was so dangerous and so funny every one connected because of it.There was this kid on the bus singing Christmas carols and every one was like oh god but in the end every one was laughing it was great.
