    Return of the non-sexist Blobs

    Pip does one non-sexist Blob picture set in a disco; I used to use it a lot with groups, sometimes actually during discos, to help them get revealing their feelings to each other. I've been away from youth work for a long, long, time it seems, so tonight, sitting on the sidelines drinking Stella at the line dancing, contemplating getting back into youth work again, I was wondering what on earth to do with a potential new group forming tomorrow. Answer: get back to the things which worked so well before. The blobs, and other related stuff. It's not outdated or outmoded, still getting well-used, so much so that Pip's got a new book out, The Big Book of Blobs. Which I'll be after soon.

    Which one am I this evening? I'm keen to think I'm most like the one emerging from the hole in the ground, blinking at daylight again after a long while in the darkness. Which one are you? (See, it's catching)
