GUESS WHO SAT ON A WHEEL. Oh Roller derby. You’re so bad for me. Why can’t I quit you?
(thats days 1 & 2)
Heard on radio 4, Roller Derby special on Friday.
It is quotes like these that make me quite worried about my recent choices.
At least, until I get my skates on again.

There is a big difference between being injured and being hurt.

Ziggy: What? Oh that was nothing. I was talking about how my tears rolled into my ears. It feels really weird.Tags: conversation, hardcore, injury, quote, roller derby, roller girls
It turns out that I should have listened to myself when I said “I can’t t-stop on my bad leg”, instead of then going “aw screw it, it’ll be fine” and falling over.
So this is my first real derby injury: One very badly sprained thumb!Tags: derby girls, injuries, injury, roller derby, skating
