roller derby adrenaline rush UPDATE :D

guess what started back this week?? ;) yay roller derby!
did i mention i am an official machete bettie?? because i am!!
 [ that's the houston rec league team :) ]
do you know what that means? i get to hit people now! or dodge people trying to hit me!
it's awesome!

AND i scrimmaged tonight for the 2nd time.
let me tell you about my first time. i jammed twice, but i didn't realize how TIRED i'd get going full speed for so long. and how much effort it took to get back up after a giant shove! one of the girls saw me struggling towards the end and whipped me - it was great :)

tonight was amazing. i actually looked around to see what was happening and what needed to happen!
i blocked with team mates, pushed girls, blocked jammers - i'm still going crazy off the adrenaline!
as a jammer i did a lot better tonight. i was lead jammer both times, and someone even commented on my ducking and weaving!
woooohooo! 
i can't wait to get my endurance up so i can last longer and take more beatings! 

and if all that isn't exciting enough, i am working on some tshirt designs!
[ you can't tell, but i'm saying, "ehhhyy!!" like the fonz ;) ]
thanks to some customer feedback i have started screen printing the mustachasaurus :)

and if any of y'all have any derby name ideas...please share!
feisty fox? feisty frenzy?
tricera-rox? roxic avenger?
outfoxed?
how do i STILL not have one?!
thank you kindly :)

don't forget to enter the
very harry potter snitch giveaway!!

  4. This is my FN comment. I'm here all the time but I don't know if i've commented in a while, so...here I am.

    I think feisty frenzy is the best. actually, anything with 'feisty' in it.
