A Little on the Nose

I’ve volunteered to stuff envelopes, so I show up to the Democratic Party of Oregon office and buzz the buzzer. Thirty seconds later, an older gentleman comes walking down the stairs and says hello. “I’m here to volunteer. I’m helping with the mailing?” “For the DPO?” “Ummm.” (Oh yeah, DPO.) “Yes.” “Huh, um, come upstairs.” […]

I’m headed toward the self-checkout when I see a woman in a long, elaborate dress swan toward me. “Swanning” is the only way she can move in this costume, with a train shushing around her on the not-quite-clean grocery store floor.

They must be models, too

I had a dream that I was asked to model at an event. I maybe could have been molded into model material, say, 22 years ago or so, but in both the conscious and unconsciousness realm I am 38 years old and have aged about ten years in the past five. Dream self is very […]

Welcome once again to the Frisky Power Rankings, where I rank women’s flat track roller derby according to my whims/in-depth knowledge. Gotham. How cute was it with all those people at the London game gushing over Gotham? They are amazing, I know! I’m sorry you had to wait that long to see it in person! […]

RollerCon looks amazing, but there are lots of other fun and exciting and fulfilling things to do. (Related: Retiring from roller derby.) What did I do while RollerCon was happening? Well, nothing too out of the ordinary. Mr. Sour was out of town for work, so I spent a lot of time at the park, […]

Manatee Monday: Go Blazers!

Manatee’s Brian Grant look  Gotta have a headband! Manatee’s Blazers game day outfits are repeated when the Blazers win, and changed after a loss, for maximum luck. Next, I think we’re gonna go for headband only. That didn’t work early in the season, but luck changes! The Brian Grant look, by the way, failed miserably […]
