Did ya’ll have fun last weekend? I know a bunch of you went to RollerCon. This year didn’t seem like the barrage of “OMG WE’RE HAVING THE TIME OF OUR LIVES” social media onslaught that I’ve seen in the past. And maybe Facebook realized that I don’t need to see every single tagged photo of […]

Welcome once again to the Frisky Power Rankings, where I rank women’s flat track roller derby according to my whims/in-depth knowledge. Oh, wait, no games have happened in forever, and I’m tired of making the same jokes. So, this month we are ranking….Girl Scout cookies. Because this is my website and I was a Girl […]

It’s a longstanding tradition for me to grouse about how much fun other people are having at RollerCon. What Happens In Vegas leaks out all over your stupid Facebook feed. Maybe a better person would be happy for their friends, but not me! I’m a regular, jealous person who’s greedy for fun. So. Not all […]

Per request, I’ve covered the cold truths about ice cream (hahahahaha) with these definitive ice cream power rankings. Eating ice cream every night for a couple of months has prepared me for just such an undertaking. I can, and will defend these positions if necessary. Peanut butter cup Cookie dough Salted caramel Cookies and cream Mint chocolate […]

Before last week, the last time I had played roller derby was a bout in August 2012. Just as I’ve been threatening to do for months, I finally made to Wreckers (Rose City rec league) practice last week. I had no idea what to expect out of myself or out of the practice, but I had already made up […]
