Remember when we used to do contests? That was fun. I liked listening to other people's music, and the cartoons - I like cartoons. ( I'm watching Futurama right now.)
I played a game tonight with my friends team, subbed in, to help out. It was weird. They were not very good. It was a bit frustrating. It's not their fault, they have a crappy captain who doesn't teach them well. I think I hurt my elbow. Well, I did. It'll be fine I'm sure, but it's annoying, I can't use my arm properly. Also muscles in my legs are wacky. I've been pushing pretty hard lately and they've been twinging all week. After this game they may be on strike. My physio may have to heal me.
Lots of shit has been going down in my derby league for a while now (I was nominated for president, in the midst of turmoil- vote was 50-50 I said give it to the other guy-he's a good guy). But, recently it came to a head and presidents were overthrown and teams left the league. Specifically, my team, the leagues A team, left the league. It was fucked up. I was not a part of that decision. Then the league voted to kick out the president, basically because he was a man, it was ridiculous, I did not agree. He was a good guy, he tried hard, I helped him out when I could. So my league has no A team, and I had to make a really big, hard decision. Those suck sometimes.
I decided to stay with my league, which is a sister league to the juniors league I run, but I miss my team. I told them I still want to skate with them but i can't afford two leagues with two sets of fees, not right now with CBB's newest venture in the works. So I'm still welcome there and may return in the future. But it makes me sad.
The exciting news is that I get to build an A team at my league, cause we need one! That will be super fun. I like being competitive and clearly need that as part of my derby career, I want to be good, I want to get better. It's fun getting better. I wanna be awesome. So, I had a pretty hardcore captain who was kind of....a bitch.. But really got good results, we trained hard. I'd love to get her results without being a bitch. I wanna train hard with the new A team, so I hope that all works out as planned. I think I will get elected captain, or be a coach, (as some girls have asked me about this already) so that should be cool. I really enjoy coaching.
I went to a bar by myself this evening, after the game, stopped when I got closer to home cause I wanted a Caesar and new I had run out of clamato. I ordered too many wings and sweet potato fries. I brought most of the food home, but the drink was nice and spicy as I enjoy. There is no point to this story, it had just been a long time since I was in a bar by myself. It was nice.
I am going out East this summer with the kids. I don't think CBB will be able to come. That's shitty, but he's not allowed out of his cage more then once a month. At least that's what the Chinese guy I got him from said, and something about water...
I mean eastern canada, that'll be your Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland (a lot of "newness" going on) also PEI, though I don't think we'll get there. My cousins live on the rock (Newfoundland) and I'm hoping somehow CBB will be able to magically fly out there when we are there and visit with us all like he has a family and a life. That would be cool.
So are we gonna do HusiStock next year or what? I'm thinking we should. It would be cool. We know CBB will be here.
