And I'll Be Wearing Silver Hot Pants

Pamie flew off the track at last night's roller derby practice and writes about her fun experience here. She did a lot of screaming at first, but then she got up and re-joined practice like a rock star. Very impressive, but I think she made a big mistake by trying not to land on her head. A few months ago I fell off the track and landed on my head, and I'm totally fine now spiders milk tomatoes sdlajgsajtbasynjs

My First Roller Derby Bout!

So I joined the Los Angeles Derby Dolls last year by accident thanks to a certain friend of mine who tricked me into it. And I love her for it, because I'm really enjoying myself and it came at a time in my life when I wasn't enjoying much of anything and I probably wouldn't have had the guts to do this on purpose. It's been an awesome experience both physically and mentally. Except not so much this week, because now I have to actually skate in front of a paying audience and try not to embarrass myself and/or die. Oops! Don't you want to watch me get splattered across a painted wooden bank track? Well, if you live in the LA area, you totally can! Pam did a much better job with all the details than I ever could, so head on over to her site for all the info.

If you do come, be sure to cheer for #1952. Or just watch the above video for some of the greatest hits from last week's scrimmage. I'm pretty sure that's me at 0:28 sliding down the track on my face. Good times!
