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 […]

We talked a while ago about roller skating while pregnant. I’ve haven’t done it, but I did talk to a bunch of roller derby people who made the same decision, so you don’t feel so alone. Thank you to everyone who reached out to share their stories! These decisions aren’t easy. (Note: these are just the experiences […]

A while ago, someone wrote me to ask about skating while pregnant, but I wasn’t able to give any personal experience. My last bout was in August 2012, and Baby Sour was born a year later.

Welcome once again to the Frisky Power Rankings, where I rank women’s flat track roller derby according to my whims/in-depth knowledge. This month, we’re looking forward to Playoffs, and teams have played their last sanctioned tuneup games. This year, they have to take those games seriously, knowing that they’ll count toward next year’s playoff rankings. […]

Hi guys! As some of you know already (because you like my Facebook page, or know me in real life or whatever) I birthed a baby about a week ago. Did you know newborn babies are time-consuming? People told me that, but I didn’t quite realize. That whole sleep thing is a doozy. A solid […]

Continuing with our frequent Manatee Adventures in Nature series, we took an afternoon to hang out at and near Lake Vancouver in Washington. Mostly, we walked around, explored the park (not busy at all for a Saturday afternoon that started out sunny), and spent some time doing some much-needed nothing. Manatee likes hanging out with […]
