Derby Girls

Watercolor Sketches

Anyone read this who knew me from Forks Elementary (I lived in Forks before the vampires)?
I was one of those creepy kids on roller skates who'd circle the block all day. The hobby died when we moved to a neighborhood with hills, but had a brief resurrection when I attended a Middle School that offered roller blading as a gym option.

From a bout we attended in late August, the Quabbin' Missle Crisis vs. the Florence Fighting Gals.

Guess the point is, I like having wheels on my feet. Probably never going to join a derby team, as I'm too afraid of breaking a hand and have enough to do between the job and comics. But I enjoy it as a spectator sport, and have been thinking about training as a ref.

There's a roller rink not far from here, the Great View Fun Center, they have an 80's night and cheap skate rentals.

A group of us went skating last weekend, and I only fell once! And that was to avoid killing a little kid who had fallen down in front of me...swear he was doing it on purpose just for fun. Had to re-teach myself how to stop.

Skating is good exercise.
