That's the That

I'm loving the current derby poster!



Practices continue, and I'm getting better slowly but surely. My outdoor wheels finally arrived and I got to skate outside for the first time this weekend. Friday night I went out on my own, stupidly without my gear, and put a hole in my knee after tripping over a twig. Saturday I went up to Santa Cruz to skate with two other derby chicks and I convinced Goat to come along on his roller blades. Now that was fun, we skated the "levy" which is basically the trail that runs along a drainage area, and it included hills! If I hadn't gone with somebody who'd skated there before and went down first, I probably would have wussed out and refused to go down the hills, but I watched her do it and decided if she could do it, I could too. By the end of the jaunt the more experienced derby girl had fallen twice, but I escaped unscathed! We went over by the Boardwalk and it was kinda surreal to practically be skating under the roller coasters.

Actually, yesterday was a most excellent day. I got up, hung out, took Bug on a walk to my favorite coffee place, sat there and drank lattes and read for awhile. Then I headed up to Santa Cruz to Goat and Jackie's. We swung past the block party happening on their street, and walked to Whole Foods for snacks. Then after Goat and I went skating we went for tacos and margaritas with one of the other Fresh Meat and her husband. Good times. When Jackie got back from her catering gig she suggested we go see (500) Days of Summer and that ended up being really cute!

Work's still busy and I've been especially short tempered lately. I dunno what I want. As far as library jobs go, this one basically lets me do exactly what I want to be doing, but I'm restless and the vibe around there lately has been horrible. Sigh.

I dunno, not much else new. Everybody thinks I must have lost five million pounds since starting derby, but that's totally not the case. I've been eating total crap lately and am still the size of a small whale. I want to do something about it, but my schedule lately hasn't been very friendly in regards to eating and as always, I'm full of excuses.

I haven't replaced my camera yet because I can't decide what one I want and it's not like I have the money for it sitting around anyway. My car is still way overdue for a new timing belt. That'll be $1000 and I seriously better get that scheduled asap as it's been on my to-do list since early spring and I've been driving so much lately. My car insurance is due shortly. I keep buying more derby gear, because that's what a girl's gotta do. I need me some new clothes. There's some super secret stuff in August that require money. I've been really wanting a small couch for my apartment again and found one from Urban Outfitters that seems perfect. It's just a matter of buying it and finding a way to move it. As added motivation my desk chair broke the other day, and my plan is to replace my desk with the couch and a small coffee table, so what better time than now, right? Oh, AND I still have my heart set on an Iphone as a birthday present to myself as my current contract is up at the end of August. Anyway, how am I going to manage all this?

The only good news is that when I went to get my teeth cleaned last week I first of all, didn't have any cavities, yay! And secondly, my dentist heard about derby and offered to make me a professional mouthgaurd on the house. Which is SWEET because that was also on my to-buy list and is a $200 value!!!!

Anyhoo, that's the that.
