@Buddha: both hands is impressive
@cub 1/5 for that combo sounds pretty good to me! Nice one.

Today I..... realised that paying more attention to your Speed Trick B than to your porridge as it's microwaving is not that great an idea!

ended my hiatus. Don't know why, should have had plenty of time during the winter holidays, but I hardly clicked since 06. December. What a shame. Do I have to make a new introduction?

On the plus side, there'll be a new player in our group tomorrow. That makes us ... 3!

...sometimes uses the kettle, but prefers to race trick ladders against the toaster....
Today I raced the saucepan against the BKO 2012 Advanced ladder. Had to add the rice before I conquered #20. I blame the low ceiling.  :)

KCC#8: 21 misses
BKA Advanced tricks": 20 misses

I think I need to make the latter a more regular practice, since I obviously need to polish that up.

Today I "barista'd" a trick ( ie raced the arrival of the coffee I was buying)

Makes a change from "kettling", "toastering" or "saucepanning"...

*Hi-5!*

I got a few people looking on in interest as I clicked for my coffee. (I can't remember what tricks a was doing - probably just general low-level jamming.) So that's got to be good. :)

Yesterday Batdancer gave me the idea for a trick: DoubleTap-back. By which, I don't mean two tap-backs in a row, I mean Tap-back, but with two taps in the same direction between the ball leaving and returning to the big cup. After seeing BD do this, I managed a [TripleTap]-back, and then 3 of those in a row. I'm sure a QuadTap-back must be possible too.

It would be possible with ample knees, Void!
 

Yesterday I managed a new spacewalk variation for the first time :-
Suicide - Handroll - Whirlwind Furiken! :D

Today, in my final run-through before Chocfest, I managed a legal run through to step 11 of the Beginners Trick Ladder, with about half a dozen errors accumulated along the way.  My best to date.  I've never yet managed Lighthouse, but if (if!) I get anywhere near this on Sat I'll be pleased.
