This morning I packed my work clothes in my gym bag. I thought I had packed a plain black shirt, but I had actually packed my vagina monologues tshirt. With a large drawing of a vagina on the back. For work.
Standing in the locker room getting dressed, I had 2 options:
Wear the vagina tshirt.
Wear a freshly sweat-soaked light colored tank top, with a black bra.
So here I am in my vagina tshirt, refusing to take off my hoodie, even though the heat is cranked up.
Follow Allie! She is witty and is a derby girl coming off of an injury :) Plenty of amusing nuggets like this one.
It seems that I am playing this game now. Which, I imagine will end after this one as I am sure that no one else will leave a heart in my ask box if they want to learn something random about me (worth a shot right?)
So here we go:
Someone once wrote a “missed connection” type ad about me in the Wash Post’s classifieds online
Our mom just got two of those asian cookie things. She then said, "Oh wow, it's 11pm! I should go to sleep!" I said, "Then you should sleep." She said, "I can't, I need to eat the cookies first!" I said, "You don't NEED to."
She said, "YES, I NEED TO."
But not really, I would kill to be as fierce as RuPaul.
There’s really no good reason that i’m reblogging this besides the fact that my little sister just reblogged this and i am assuming that she’s at home putting the bass into her walk since she’s off of school…again. (This will amount to a 5 day weekend).
So this Saturday, my team will be playing against Charm City’s Night Terrors (loaded with CCRG All-Stars) in a 30 minute expo bout as a part of CCRG’s season opener. It’s been forever since i’ve really written anything substantive about my derby journey beyond promos for upcoming bouts and the obligatory reblogs of awesome derby pics/posts. So here’s just a quick little something.
The bout on Saturday is just an expo, but it is a big deal for me. My first taste of derby was going to a CCRG bout in March of last year. I was hooked immediately. From that point on, I was in attendance at nearly every bout. I adopted a favorite team (Speed Regime!), favorite skaters, and it only took 2-3 bouts before I knew that this was what I wanted to do.
Now it’s almost a year later and i’ll be playing at DuBurns on the same track as those women who inspired me to put on a pair of skates. Don’t get me wrong, DCRG is my league and my family, but CCRG definitely holds a special place.
I should also say that up until I got drafted to the Bombshells, the Night Terrors were my little sister’s favorite derby team ;)
My favorite derby players are actually players from my own team. My favorite blockers are; SINtaMENTAL aka my cousin. Not just because she's my cousin though. But she's a GREAT blocker. She's the co-captian of the team and she's one of the lead blockers. She's my idol. Kausin Karnage; Because she's intimidating as fuck. And she's a great blocker as well. Jammars; Barbie Wire. She's the captain and I believe founder of the team. She's tiny but she's FAST! I don't think I've ever seen he lose a jam once. Betty Lu Tattoo; She's so adorable! She gets hit around a lot and doesn't do very great with taking blocks. But when she's out of the pack she's FAST I mean seriously fast. It's incredible to see her! :D
I think it’s awesome that your favorites are from your local team. I think it’s easy to immediately say Suzy Hotrod, Carmen Getsome, etc (and with good reason obviously! I love them too) but I think there is something to be said for those local skaters that may have been the ones that made you fall in love with the sport. So I think it’s totally cool. And it makes me want to see them play!
