the skinny

ok, so last week my friend kim came to visit, and she didn't come alone. she came with the texas rollergirls, who were in town to throw down against the local roller derby gang.
so saturday night i went to see the bout in a big old warehouse in Magnusson park. it was the kind of place you go to see big underground events like secret street fighting or something- i kept thinking of that van damme movie 'lionheart' or that sasha mitchell movie 'kickboxer 4' where cody from step by step fought a gang of bikers in a warehouse....

ANYWAYS, it was okay i guess,... that is, if you are into things like 40 chicks with tattoos on roller skates trying to knock each other down (i am). Fortunately there were people there taking pictures!
There was even a fight! Fortunately there were people there taking pictures! awesome!


the rest of the weekend was spent going to parties, and afterparties, and all night diners, and having pool parties with the texas rollergirls in their downtown hotel pool and and driving some of them around cause you know, sober.

if i'm not asleep tomorrow i will reveal on the internet what i did for memorial day....

That sounds like a seriously awesome weekend & I wish I had tattoos & the ability to rollerskate so I could posse up with those ladies, I'm jealous that you did....any action of the make-out variety?

I also think that if you aren't ever going to take pictures you should give me your camera so that at least one of our blogs had pictures.

K Bye.

Carmen, rollerskating is overrated, sitting around on a couch watching sci-fi channel is much better. Let's start a club! Nathaniel can take pictures.

Rob and Nathaniel, sure, whoop it up, ding dong the witch is dead. You'll miss me when I'm gone.

I watch Battlestar last night! I've started the series over again because I missed it so much.

I TOTALLY want to get to Seattle! My brother lives there even! When can I come! Maybe I could help with the move?
