Hi Fellow Hooper!

I wanted to reply to let you know that YES there are other hoopers on here! I find the website www.hoopcity.ca to be WAY better than Hooping.org. Check that site out! It has a forum area too where you can get a lot of help with anything hoop related! Also, I notice that you are wrapping your colored electrical tapes over the bare irrigation tubing without laying out a base. That is fine, but I have made...oh lessee....about 15 hoops in the past month so I am hoping I may have some helpful tips  Grin

I would suggest you try laying a base of tape down first, (if you want the background color to still be black like the tube, then just use black electrical and do a really tight spiral so it slightly overlaps.), then wrapping your colored spirals around that. That will help add a little heft (making for easier hooping!) and also will add a bit of padding. I don't know if you have gotten to the MASSIVE BRUISING stage haha (I currently have 4 on my left arm, one on my left hip, and one BIG one on my left collar bone!).

I don't think many hoopers use Duct tape, but I do! It does get frayed along the edges. I personally like that look, but if you want it clean and tidy then you can also always go over the edges of the Duct with some electrical to keep the edges hidden. Duct comes in sooo many awesome colors now!

Another fun idea is to wrap the colors in bands, instead of spirals. hmm that was kind of hard to explain! Here are some pictures Smiley

Now this is getting to be a LOOOONG post! One last idea for you!!! I am not sure how you are connecting your hoops, but I am going to assume you are using a coupling from the hardware store (the grey short pipe fitting things). I did that for my first like 10 hoops, and then I discovered an even better way on hoopcity!! Here is a link with photos so you can see the amazing way! I have tried it on about 4 hoops now, and it REALLY works amazingly well. It is much easier and looks totally seamless. Here ya go: http://www.hoopcity.ca/photo/photo/listForContributor?screenName=308ki8rdcv304

Hope that helps! Post more pics if you make more. I would love to see!

8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: broke as heck, ramen recipes? on: August 14, 2008 12:10:41 PM
Ok this is MY FAVORITE.

Boil the ramen, then mix in the packet of seasoning (or just some of it, this gets pretty salty, but I LOVE salty). Then add a nice big spoonfull of Miso Paste. Stir up real good to make sure the miso is mixed in and there are no clumps. When its all dissolved, put in your bowl and top with a heap of pickeled ginger and a buncha togarashi seasoning! SOOO GOOOD!!!!!!!!! (The Miso Paste, Pickeled Ginger and Togarashi can all be found in Asian markets and are all really cheap!)

My friend Amy had this happen to her last summer. She had cucumbers and cantaloupes growing and they made sweet love. She called them Cucaloupes and they were AMAZING.

I love mashed avocado on buttered toast. That has been my go to meal since i was a kid. I actually had that for dinner last night. It's not weird to me at all but everyone I have ever told about it, looks at me like i am a total freak lol

I love to take a whole can of chili and mix it with a whole batch of prepared mac n cheese. holy shit. so good.

Molasses. By the spoonful. I LOOOOVE IT.

Salsa mixed with Cottage Cheese. So good. Looks really nasty though!

Mayo on french fries. MMMMMMMM

Japanese mayo on Pizza. Holy crap it is so good. I forgot about that one too...now I need to go to the japanese market...

And I don't think this is weird, but wanted to share it. If you spread a thick layer of cool whip between to graham crackers and FREEZE it, they taste like they are filled with ICE CREAM! SO GOOD!
