Before we had the internet, if you wanted to see some cute baby animals, you had to go find some. Or, if you’re my age, you could go to the poster store at the mall and flip through the animal section. How many of us have been bolstered by kittens emploring us to “hang in […]

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 […]

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. […]

Yoga Nabi Sari (Nabi for short) is a co-captain of Rose City’s Guns N Rollers, a member of the Axles of Annihilation, and a pretty kickass human being. I got to coach Nabi when she was on Fresh Meat, and was always amazed by her positive attitude and work ethic. She was one of those people who […]

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 […]

Manatees, like any other animal, enjoy simple summer activities like hanging out at the river and skipping rocks.     Well, that’s a good one, Manatee. Looks nice and flat. But how are you gonna huck it? Those flippers aren’t made for skipping.     This approach didn’t give quite the desired effect, either. The […]

Yee-haw! America! We had a pretty-low key 4th of July here at the Sour house. I’d say we had a quiet day, but we live in the city, so it was pretty freaking loud. We just weren’t the ones making the noise. Manatee decided he wanted to show his patriotic side. Drinking a beer on […]

ECDX, you guys! It’s starting today! And I can actually watch part/most of Texas vs. Gotham, yaaaaay! Texas beat Rocky Mountain by 150 points last month. What does it mean? We’ll see when Texas plays Gotham and Philly. I think I’m most excited about those games. What about you? You going? Skating? Watching at home […]

It was 84 degrees yesterday in Portland, Oregon. When that happens, Portlanders grab their dogs and congregate near bodies of water. I don’t have a dog, but I do have a manatee friend, so we headed down to the river for some sun.   You probably can’t tell here, but I have a Blazers blanket […]
