[wipes false tears of hilarity from eyes] No seriously: Howdy everyone.

I am a amateur clown from Texas. I have am having a increasingly diverse interest in object manipulation, and have decided to pick contact juggling because er... it seems fun, and could possibly be funny though I have yet to see a vid of a comic contact juggler... not that I have looked very hard.

All I can do so far is do the roll the ball over the fingers between the front and back of the hands. I look forward to learning more. Much more.

Anyways: howdy... Again... in case you missed that the first couple of times... right.

I am in Abilene. Sphere camp looks cool, though I am generally low on funds and might be out of the country by then, I will see what I can do.

I have the beginnings of a mime act with the ball. I like it, but I need more ideas to put in it. It's a 'this thing is stuck to me and I don't know why.' act.

*waves* I'm in Texas too. I'm also near Austin. If you do make it this way for Sphere Camp, say hi. Though I don't really practice so I can't do much

I am amateur in all the senses of the word. I do indeed get laughs only part of the time. I love to clown, and I haven't gotten paid for it yet.

Alas I am not a rodeo clown, though I think that is incredibly cool. I am a city Texan so I haven't hung around rodeos all that much and have never been in one which is more a criteria for being a rodeo clown then you would think.

I have family in Austin, and one of my cousins there is into CJ too. He might even be on here somewhere... I am going to contact him and see if he wants to do sphere camp with me.
