Roller Derby Baby!

So not last weekend, but the one before we headed out to NoHo to check out some roller derby. We managed to pick a weekend where a hole had formed in the crust of the earth and lava and fire were pouring forth creating hell on earth. So hot in fact that I broke down and bought this overpriced, oversized fedora. Not that I wasn't happy to have it at the time mind you. Still, I don't know when or if I'll wear it again.


The bout we showed for was the first of the season. Here's the schedule for the rest of the season. Of course we'll be out of town for the first banked track, but oh well. I'll give up roller derby for Maui any day.


There are four teams in the LA Derby Dolls league. It certainly doesn't seem to be a high dollar franchise at this point, but that doesn't seem to matter because even with the heat the ladies went out there and seemed to have some fun.


There's more info and stuff on their site. The quiz below being some of that stuff. Take the quiz and find out which team is yours.


Which LA Derby Doll team fits you best?

Your quick thinking and skill in extreme circumstances would make you a perfect addition to the unfriendly skies ruled by our FIGHT CREW. Not since Hollywood's blacklist has there been such a Red Scare looming over Los Angeles. Sneak tactics, precision operations, and well-timed blindsiding penalties are the order of the day for your new band of soaring aces. Your loyalty will be ingrained, because remember: while some Derby Dolls have chosen their alter-egos, others have earned their names. Your Captain is Tara Armov, so note the latter.
Take this quiz!

Stuck In Your Head Now Biotch!

Dammit

So apparently the laundry/futbol incident was just the spark. I've now watched every possible match I could since then. Well except for the early morning ones, because really normal people should still be sleeping at godawful o'clock in the morning. Maybe it's the fact that there aren't any other sports on at noon. I don't know. All I can say is I've been drawn in and will honestly be dissapointed when I return to work tomorrow and can't watch the noon games. Oh well going cold turkey has usually worked well for me anyway so maybe this will cure me.

Ole!

Eureka! Futbol!

I finally figured it out. I went to the laundromat today to, well, do laundry. Der. So as usual Univision is on. I'm waiting for the next novella so I can check out the hot latin chicks, but this is World Cup season and that being the case, no novella. Instead it's England vs. Sweden playing futbol. I now know what makes me want to watch futbol.

Doing laundry.

That's right. While I'm doing laundry I really enjoy watching the futbol. So for the rest of the Americans out there that still have no interest in the World Cup try it while doing laundry. Thumbs up.

16 Tons And What Do You Get?

Another day older and deeper in debt.

So it was brought to my attention last night after I picked Mrs. LK up at the airport that I haven't been posting here.

No shit?!

Anyway, since Disneyland last Wednesday I haven't had a day off and most of those days were not short days. Sunday being the exception. Day of rest an all. There's stuff I want to post, like Disneyland pics and whatnot, but I just haven't had the motivation after coming home to actually put the effort in that's required.

So barring any mishaps (and now that I've said that there will be some) I should finish up this project Saturday and I'll be taking the next five days after that, Sunday through Thursday, off. Basically I will have worked enough hours in the previous nine days to not need to come in for the next five. Woohoo.

I could take the overtime pay instead, but fuck that I want outta this place. Booyah!
