i may need some practice before roller derby

In less than two hours of skating, I only fell three times. Once was on the carpet, not attempting to move at all (a "banana peel moment", Kim called it). That one hurt worse than the rest. A fun sendoff for Ambria, and a good opportunity to learn that we all suck at skating. Some of us in more entertaining ways than others.

Christine and I got tangled up in each other's skates. Vi tried to skate backwards to take a picture of Ambria, and they both ended up in a heap on the skating rink floor. Jimmy fell, but I missed that one, thankfully. Brian nearly tripped over one of the many small skating vermin, and just about launched himself over the wall I was leaning on trying to stop after that.

Fun was had. Drinking in the parking lot beforehand may not have been the best idea as far as skating goes, but a decent amount of beer made the falls a little easier to take, if not more frequent.

I had my camera with me, and then super-smart me locked it up in the locker with my purse. So I took some after-skate pics as we were getting out of there. The lighting sucked and everyone moved or blinked when I took the pics, so this is pretty much the only good one i've got. Me and Tina. I like it.

Also tonight, I found muscles in my legs that I didn't know I had. They hurt now.

and one more tattoo pic. just because.

It's hard to take a picture of the side of your own leg. don't hate. Anyway, this pic was right after it was done. The color is settling a bit, and i still really like it. So does everyone else but Meliah, and she hates all cats anyway.

I'm home with Michael again. He's done with homework for today, I've got Chinese beer, and we're watching the Seattle drag races. Next weekend, Brad and I are driving up to Sonoma for the race. He's working on Ron August's car, and I'm pretty much a spectator. Odd spot for me. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Maybe Ronnie will let me wash parts or something.

    Sometimes you have to go 2000 miles to get to the one. So worth it. Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

    It's already getting wild out here, and I've completely re-evaluated my definition of "behaving myself". All the fun. Posted via LiveJournal…
