Fan-fucking-tastic!!

This has been a crazy great week.

The non-skating stuff: I was totally broke, I hate when the bi-weekly paycheck comes a week before rent is due because I can't budget; I spend money, pay rent, then have nothing for a week till I get paid again... but then I get creative with canned food or bargain splurges (like the ginger I'm addicted to was clearanced out in the bulk section -so they can charge more for packaged stuff- but it was super cheap and I had ginger for days).

I volunteered at my sister's church watching kids Tuesday morning and the biggest compliment was when one's mom came and he cried because he didn't want to leave. For my volunteer-ness Jessika filled my gas tank! Sweet!

I picked up my "Raible" Seahawks jersey!! (I told him about it tonight, I'm excited to bring it in, when I'm not sick, to have him sign it and take a picture or two.)

I did have enough quarters to do laundry, I cleaned my whole apartment when I thought my mom might stop over-she didn't- but it's awesome to have it all clean! SHE DID offered to buy me dinner if I'd come to her hotel. Oh yeah!

and I won $7 on a lottery ticket. It's just the beginning- next stop 7 million! Ha!

Skating outside is free! I skated 3 days.

Thursday was the 5 star day.
5 league-mates met me at Alki to skate the path down and back (3 miles long) then through Jack Block park to a rarely used street with a banked side. It was amazing. I was the slow/ new/ scared skater but non of us had been there, learning all around. We skated up and down the ramp, jumped/ hopped up and down the ramp, (they practiced transitions on the ramp) and there was the girl-time bonding and lots of laughing. Shooting the duck, yelling at a motorcycle guy who looked like he might be leering at a us, talk of derby and boyfriends... I left with a total high on life, gushy derby love feeling going on!

The day only got better. that night was the Rockabilly fundraiser- where I got free (non-alcoholic) drinks (see budget issue), ate a spicy hotdog with cream cheese (bought with my designated "drink" money-it was amazing!), and saw a great show with the whole TTRB team.

Derby Dancing=Dirty Dancing w/ lots of cleavage!
