PD0 Pixie sez:
I'd never met an SF0 member in real life. I've actually never met anyone from the internet in real life, but once finding a fellow PD0 member who would actually return my messages, we were eager to set up a meeting. I came with a couple friends and we met outside the PSU bookstore, where we recognized each other via the color of our stockings.
In short, she taught me to build mario cubes, and i taught her to fire dance.
A M sez:
I'm strong on knowledges and sort of short on skills (I think of it in RPG character terms, I'm a big dork). So kind of the most hands-on thing I could come up with was mario cubes, as featured in my Fortune Not Cookie praxis. Pixie picked up on the theory right quick, and produced a cube
that we used for Silent Donation.
I have a number of friends who spin poi or do other shiny firedance tricks, but have never picked it up myself. Pixie taught me to swing poi in circles alternating between in front of and behind my head. Thankfully, they were pretty padded, so when I whacked myself with them it didn't hurt.
There are also a couple of videos of me doing the trick more or less successfully below. I have omitted the four-second video I accidentally took of Pixie's feet, as I deemed it un-skill-related.
