Today I'm delivering a bunch of hula hoops I made last night. I still have a handful to make this weekend and I love it! If you live in Michigan and want to buy one, let me know. (I haven't figured out how to ship them yet.)

This week I decided to upgrade my hoop by adding glow-in-the-dark tape. The tape is SUPER expensive, but I had a 60% off coupon. Sadly though, it didn't go all the way around. So I'm going to have to get my hands on another coupon to get another roll. I wish I'd gotten a picture of myself actually using it in the dark because it looked really cool, but I did get a picture of it propped up:

It's going to be so fun to hoop this summer with my glow-in-the dark hoop. I just hope fireflies don't try to mate with it. It is a pretty attractive hoop so I could be bombarded by the wrong kind of fireflies (the kind you don't take home to meet the parents).

Glow-in-the-dark tape pretty much upgrades everything. No exceptions. We all agree on this, right?

I LOVE the glow-in-the-dark one! All of the color combinations and variations are very cool! Today Michigan, tomorrow the world!

I once went to see a guitarist friend play a show in a Portland bar and the entertainment between sets was these two girls with glow-in-the-dark hula hoops who were doing all these cool moves in the dark. I took a video of it, but the club was very dark and I was focusing so much on keeping the action framed well on my crappy little iPod camera, so I couldn't really tell what was going on, but it was still cool with all the glowing hoops flying around. However, when I pulled up the video later I realized what was really going on: while the girls were hula hooping they were also stripping (not all the way down, but too close for an innocent little Mormon boy). I then felt like a perv for having filmed it and promptly deleted it.

(Now that I write it out, it sounds like it could be a Portlandia sketch.)
