Run, run, run, jump, leap through the air, turn, and land. The judges lift up their cards for judgment: 9, 7, 8, 9, 6. A few boos at the one who held up the 6, but other than that, cheers and enthusiastic clapping from the crowd. They’ve come to watch this perky little sprite show her stuff on the pole vault and the horse, and she has done her best to return their support by giving them the best flips that aerodynamics can provide.

Summertime. Flipping, cannonballs, cheerleading, happy. The smell of fresh cut grass as you preform front flips, back flips. Joyousness, happiness. Next to the pool in the summer. Flipping off the diving board in the fresh, cool water. What a relief to flip in the water since the rays of sun are beginning to make your skin feel as if it’s pulsing with heat.

Well, aren’t you cool? You do parkour? You know, all the flips and tricks and such? Well, I have to admit that it is a bit cool. Maybe I’m just bitter that I can’t do it. On second thought, I am pretty bitter.

when we make out, sometimes your hair falls from the way it sits. with a hand, you flip it back over, your swoop in place. i smile and wait until your lips are on mine, again.
By postmarkedheart URL on 04.03.2012
whenever i think of flip i think of dancers doing backflips.
if i could, i’d do backflips for you.

Duke led me through the masses of drunken people at prom. I stumbled here and there myself, but only because everyone else’s feet and shoelaces were in the way–I swear!
And then he introduced me to this quiet girl, but I swear she was familiar. Duke, having peeled me from being a wallflower, now introduced me to another: one that was in the opposite corner of the room.
“C’mon! She’s a nice gal!” he said.
I hardly had a moment to catch my guard–Duke’s own, illegally-substanced self suddenly took his own hand at making my lips collide with the girl’s. Suddenly, my world was completely flipped–what the hell, Duke?!–and then I remembered who that girl was.

as we standing by the edge of the ocean, i was captured by the sight of the dolphins flipping their tails and jumping out of the water just to dive right back in. i was amazed at how close these majestic creatures were.

Flip a coin to find out who will need to go first or what decision should be made. Flip is what a gymnast does or a football player in the end zone when he wants to celebrate a touchdown.

As he flipped over the bars, Estin caught sight of the dark haired man again. What would such a person be doing in a gymnasium, much less the ratty one he was in? He didn’t know, but he couldn’t dwell on such matters as he managed to land his triple backflip.
By Neon URL on 04.03.2012
Things have been turned around. We used to be close. You said things wouldn’t change. That I wasn’t a placeholder. But here we are. And I realize in retrospect that I’ve always known how uneven our relationship has been.

Flip was the only motion he could describe it as. It was as if his mother simply flipped from the top of the stool, as she swung back and forth from the ceiling. She didn’t simply drop or step off of the stool, but she seems to have the urge to backflip from the stool as he witnessed is mother hanging from her bedroom closet, swaying back and forth form the neck.
By Darryl Johnson on 04.03.2012
i flip out so easily
like a light switch
back and forth
light and dark
on and off
By sarah marie URL on 04.03.2012
With a flip of the switch and a little hand trick, Arthur let the lights flood the big stage. In the great amphitheater, people drank bulbous liter upon liter of spiced, liquid rage. When the actors all strode on the upstage road toward their destiny marked on a page, audience was in tears – no bad words or bad jeers – for the oddest little show of the age.
By Belinda Roddie URL on 04.03.2012
The flip in her hair really bounced.
I flipped the table over in a heat of rage.
I can do a flip off the diving board no problem.
By teeda URL on 04.03.2012
The lid is off, joy tumbles out like a popcorn popper dream. Only poppers ain’t what they used to be. This ain’t the 60s and dreams don’t come for free no more. No. You pop the lid off the top and it’s your brain, singin’ man. It’s the cosmic egg cracked open, only it’s like, totally your mind.

estou farta desta palavra sacudida para o meu ecrã. quem é que ela pensa que é para me perseguir??
By sgar URL on 04.03.2012
and what is
that sick feeling
when everything you knew
is no more
just a hollow memory

Peguei-lhe na mão…senti-a insegura como sempre a senti. Não a queria perder mais uma vez como já antes a tinha perdido. Agarrei-lhe nos dois braços, sacudi-a até não poder mais e ao mesmo tempo gritava o quão importante ela era para mim. Sacudiste-me o mundo, e puses-te tudo fora do lugar
By tommy URL on 04.03.2012
i don’t know what to write about flip. may be the coin flipping, or the back flipping. but seriously, i don’t have enough idea about the flip meaning, as i am not a native English speaker. But i can try, yes, i can try..umm i guess flipping is sort of bending..or what??
By jiashahood URL on 04.03.2012
Flip the bird. Why has this action caused me so much grief as of late? Seriously, kids point with that finger and it’s meaningless until some other kid comes along and tells them, “don’t do that. That’s swearing.” Really? It was innocent until you told them it was swearing. So now who’s wrong?

Flip Flop mobiles are these days so in. It has got its own identity and style. Just love to carry such cells, looks so cool as well.

Sabes, estou perdida…
Como se as pernas não pertencessem ao tronco e a cabeça nem sabe o que coordenar. Os braços gesticulam cegos, da boca brotam palavras soltas que não sei de onde vieram, nem o que querem dizer. Depois são as pernas que sacodem o corpo inerte, levam-me numa espécie de sonambulismo para os lugares que me esperam.
Há sempre alguém que me espera. Pergunto-me se eu também esperarei alguém.
E nesse momento, sacudo o tempo de ausência, para refugiar-me no teu colo, dentro da cabana junto à praia, com a chuva a cair violenta lá fora e a minha boca a percorrer suavemente o teu pescoço.
I flipped my cards and made a mess. why can’t I learn to shuffle properly. It yakes much more practice that what i amn giving it I guess.

Turning my world upside down. Just when you think your feet are planted firmly on the ground, rooted in reality, the world flips. Your brain flips. Suddenly, you ar eoff kilter. Crying for help. Will it come? Do you want it to?

Her hair hung over her shoulders. Prominent cheekbones and cherry stained lips. She had but one flaw; her flat nose. She was staring back at me through a glass silver reflection. I raised my hand toward the glass surface separating us. She too, lifted her hand to meet mine. Forever trapped in a mirror image. Flipped.

from above the gaze
what a stupid girl
what terrible lies
in her own heart
his eyes pierced through her
and everything ended up

I flipped. I flipped my lid. I flipped my lid way off. It fell to the ground, where it shattered. There was no way to repair it. My lid, that is. Which I flipped.

Moving the mirror a little to the side, Jensen flipped an edge of the wallpaper. The paper had come undone because something had been stuffed behind it along one of the seams that the mirror covered. He reached in and pulled out a small folded note that had a red heart on it.
By chole URL on 04.03.2012
It does it every time you come near; your face 50 feet, two feet, straight in front of me. It does it every time you breathe; once in, twice in, thrice in my room. It does it every time you speak; the words on your lips like the meanings of peaks of the Earth I’m disguised in– my heart, it flips, it flips with your grin.
By Leslie URL on 04.03.2012
After running across the floor and springing into the air by thrusting my hands into the beam, I flipped head over heels, heels over hips, hips over knees, and crashed into the floor with a loud CRACK! from my neck.
By Shawn on 04.03.2012
One, two, three. Jump. Flipping and twisting in the air. Graceful like a bird. Letting gravity bring me down to the water. My body moves in flips and twists. Twirling releasing a spray of water. Falling. I can feel the suspense. Hitting the cool blue water. Coming back up for air. The crowd cheering. Time stands still as a flip. Like a single moment can seem like an hour. This is my freedom. This is my rush. Plummeting to earth flipping though the air.
By Alex on 04.03.2012
oh yeah really?
do I flipping care?
I could do back flips I’m so excited.
This is the worst flipping news I’ve heard all day.
I’m about to flip out!
What the flip do I know?
By Marie-Eve on 04.03.2012
BAIN OF MY EXISTENCE!!!
I borrowed a flip mino HD recorder from a friend, hoping I could shoot some video with it for another friend. The only thing worse than bouncy video, is bouncy video in HD! It’s awful. It picks up every single movement with nauseating clarity. The picture is only clear if it’s on a tripod.
I tried several after-video stabilizing software applications. None did everything I needed. (How do some of these neglect to include a CROP feature??!)
As for hardware, steadicam handles cost too much, so I tried making some – Fail. There’s tutorials online but you need tools and a shop and a real hardware store for that.
– OH! And I forgot to mention the part where the battery was so screwy it took me two days of messing with it to get the thing to hold a charge!
Anyway… I haven’t returned it yet. My friends don’t need it right now and maybe I’ll find a way to get ok results from it. So far though, epic fail. Which is upsetting because I thought a better camera might yield better results. …. Nope!

I flip my body
onto the crisp blue water,
crashing and smashing
on the surface.
By room23 URL on 04.03.2012
crashing into the water
flipping, diving, graceful arcs
I am a whale
jumping out to sea
I flip in the air
I do a triple spin
I jump so high
I caught the wind
the water sprays on my body
It feels so good
I see the dolphins at the show
as they spin and flip around
it is so awesome and cool
that i wish i could do it on the ground
under the cruel, harsh, unforgiving waves
arms flapping about
screaming, shivering, alarmingly
