You know Manatee loves to party – so he was more than happy to hang out with Baby Sour and I this weekend as we cheered on Rose City at WFTDA Playoffs. (Baby Sour just cheered. He didn’t watch. He’s just a baby.) Manatee’s favorite player is obviously Scylla Devourer. Because he loves the sea. […]

If ya’ll have been poking around the site, you know that I started my roller derby career with the Bleeding Heartland Rollergirls.

This is the latest installment of  my roller derby for beginners series. Go back and look, and make sure to tell me if there’s anything I’m missing. Here to serve, derby friends. So you’ve tried out and you’ve made Fresh Meat. Ta-da! You made it! Just kidding – it doesn’t necessarily feel like you’ve made […]

Hey, it’s Friday, whooo! It’s gorgeous in Portland, Oregon – sunny and 70-something, and forecasted to stay that way through the weekend. We get these lovely early October days a lot. They seem like Mother Nature’s way of saying, “Hey, sorry about June.” I’m not quite sure what to rock out to this afternoon. Here’s […]

For months I’ve been hearing about these summer resident whales on the Oregon Coast: there are so many this year! They come in so close to the beach to feed, they’re like, RIGHT THERE, etc. Last weekend we didn’t have one thing planned on Sunday, so we drove off to the coast to try to […]
