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 […]

Not all of us are going to RollerCon. Maybe you can’t afford it, or you have other responsibilities, or you just don’t feel like going to Las Vegas in July. Or you don’t prefer not to. All fair and valid life choices. However, I think the rest of us should have some fun—just like last […]

WFTDA RANKINGS AND PLAYOFF SEEDINGS ARE OUT ARE YOU EXCITED I AM EXCITED FLIGHTS FROM PORTLAND TO DALLAS ARE CHEAP I’M JUST SAYING   Okay, we don’t have to yell for the ENTIRE post.

You got your bracket*,  your flat track stats, and maybe/sometimes your Rinxter (Ed: well, you used to). Perhaps you have a beer. You, friend, are ready to spectate the hell out of some roller derby. Thinking of attending playoffs in Sacramento gives me a flashback hangover to 2010. You know, Scylla won Best Blocker at the […]

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, […]

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.
