Being More At the BMore

Get ready for some derby talk!

 

And getting and being there.  Before I left:

This is our group photo.  I’m just to the left of the sign, in the black hockey helmet with a white jersey.

 

And at the end of the night I was there–through all three fucking hours.  And I survived!

 

Me and my Bee.  🙂

The Post Of the Forth

Well, I hope you all had a good Second Civil War Day!

First off, I didn’t have a good day yesterday.  In fact, it was one of those “My Brain Wants Me Dead” sort of days and I spent most of it in bed crying–when I wasn’t sitting around crying, that is.  I cried so much yesterday by 9 last night my eyes hurt.

Today, however, I’m better.  Much better.  And I started out the day right by doing something I’d promised to do:  be in an Independence Day parade with my teammates.  Not only that, but I said I would skate.  That’s right: skate on the street and hand out fliers.

 

That was the “before” shot.  It was hot out today and it got hotter as we skated.  Even though it was a mile, we had to go up one small hill and then come down a bigger one–and I did this with my other teammates without going on my butt.  Yay!

Since there is a “before”, that must mean there are “afters”.  Yup.  Here they are.

Yeah, it was hot.

 

But we could still pose for a picture.

 

And a few hours ago the skies opened up and it began raining.  Which means I needed another picture:

‘m loads of laughs.

Also, the piece I was interviewed for by The Central Voice, an online LGBT publication, finally saw the light of day, and you can read that right here.

Now, one thing I alluded to in my video the other day… since I’m on a derby kick today I may as well tell everyone I’m going to attend another clinic, this time on the evening of the 13th of this month, which is a Friday if you didn’t already know. It’s one being given by Laci Knight, a player who gave a clinic back in February and of which I was an observer.

So what’s the big deal about this one?  I’m not going to just watch–I’m gonna skate! Yes, I decided to up my derby game and this time, with the approval of coaching, I will strap on my skates and be my own hero.  And at some–probably an hour into the clinic–I’ll also probably go, “What the hell have I gotten myself into?”  But those be the breaks.  Beside, if you’re gonna skate with the big girls, you may as well take a lot of hits from them as well.

That’s all I have. Enjoy the rest of the day and if you can, get your drinking in before the aliens arrive, because–
