Things have been busy around here, so I thought it would be fun to show you one of the reasons why. It's sort of food related, in a little itty bitty tiny way. My derby name is Murder 'em Rare. And my theme is meat:Human Meat! MUAHAHA!!!
And I've been super duper busy because among lots of other things, Emerald Coast Roller Derby (facebook) is preparing for our first competitive season, including our first bout in exactly a week! One week! Yikes!
If you remember, I did derby in 2009. And I loved it. And this happened:
And that, I didn't love so much. So after lots of time not walking, and lots of time trying to walk like a normal human being, I've recently started skating again. And it's not pretty. It could be that I'm scared that the above could happen again. It also could be that I'm waaay outta shape (those Fatty McFatty thighs I've talked so highly about). Most likely, it's a combination of the both. But I'm trying, and that's what counts, right?
So while I'm slowly (like snail slow) building up my skating legs, I've been working as our bout coordinator doing exactly that - Coordinating our bout. It takes a lot of work. And after I get home from work, I'm often doing something derby. And because of our bout coming up on February 5th, that's all I've been doing. And not much cooking. And if I do cook, I'm exhausted and I don't bother to set up my food-taking-picture-stuff, I just shovel the food in my face, throw the dishes in the sink, and zonk out.
So. No food for you!
A few weeks ago, Wicked T offered to take some shots of individuals (cause that's what she does when she's not beatin' bitches to the ground). I thought I'd share a couple of them with you.Well, that's what I have to share with you today. I hope you enjoy. And I hope that if your in the area, your going to be coming to the bout. If you need tickets, let me know. I can hook you up like that.

P.S. I just noticed that I'm facing the same way in all of my pictures. That's kinda weird. Maybe I should flip one around or something. I've never had pictures like that taken of myself before, and I was really kinda nervous about it (does it show?). But I ended up having a lot of fun, and I can't wait to do it again. It was one of those things where I couldn't think of what to do during the shoot, but as soon as I got home I had a ton of those 'I should have done that!' moments. Oh well. There's always a next time.
