So, that is my face. On an entire page of Inside Line magazine. 

What.

(Thanks to Cake or Death? for the photo, since I am still at my mum’s recovering from the knee op.)

Guess who Croydon Roller Derby voted their Most Feared Blocker of the Brighton Bruisers?

Oh, that’s right, ME! And I did it with the cartilage in my left knee torn! 

Gaaaah, I am both shocked and pleased! I’ve said ever since I started that I wanted to get MFB, but I never thought I actually WOULD. Just because MFB tends to go to the blockers who do the big, flashy hits and my style is more “extreme booty blocking” 😀

So, thank you Croydon. You’ve made my year so far 🙂

It’s that time again – the undefeated Brighton Rockers take on the mighty Dublin Roller Girls in the battle of EUROCOLLISION.

Basically, come see me get the shit kicked out of me by awesome Irish ladies. 

Now with ROLLER DISCO AFTERPARTY.

I just had one of those “holy crap” moments…

… Realising that I am going to be playing in a bout against the Dublin Roller Girls in three weeks.

And then realising that EIGHT of their players? Yeah, they are on Team Ireland.

Holy. Crap.

I really feel that this should be the Brighton Rockers’ motto… 😉

My entire body is made of pain

Some of the Rockers took up brooms, mops and scrubbing brushes this evening to clean the floor of our new warehouse – a warehouse that is the size of a mid-sized aircraft hangar. Less than a quarter of the way through the buffer failed and we had to do the rest scrubbing on our hands and knees! 

It took five solid hours to do the whole thing, with only one 20 minute break – for pizza and beer. Lots of hard work, but fun. Hopefully the floor can get sorted properly and be skateable soon 🙂

EXCITEMENT.

I played my first bout today!

Saturday 6th August 2011 @ 8:50 pm : Tumblr : 0 Comments :

It was truly amazing. I love the Brighton Rockers so much – we beat the Romsey Town Rollerbillies by NINE POINTS. So the Rockers are still undefeated! And I played! And Bash kept putting me on when it got difficult, so I am so very very happy. 

At one point three of the Romsey blockers hit me at once. I was told this at the afterparty, because I didn’t even notice it had happened and hardly moved at all. I am pleased. I fell over twice – once in each half. And I didn’t get a single penalty – not even a minor!

And my mum just bought me pizza in bed. Best day ever.

I am on the roster. WHAT IS THIS, I CANT EVEN. WHAT.

There are four of us battling it out for two spots on the team, and two spots as alternates. I honestly don’t know which I would prefer, but STILL.

ROSTER. ME. ON IT. GAH.

I DID THIS. With Dan and Alex, and contributions from the minds of Fensome and Oscar Wilde. We made awesome signs. The had glitter, mutilated Oscar Wilde quotes, and boobs.

I credit the posters entirely for the Brighton Rockers’ win today 😉

Seaside Siren Roller Girls present: BEACH, BASH, BOSH!

It’s the Seaside Sirens taking on the Brighton Rockers, June 18th in Southend.

Both the Sirens and the Rockers had SMASH wins in their debut bouts, so this will be a tough match up that will finally prove which seaside town reigns supreme!
