Corey's parents came to visit this weekend, so we took them to a roller derby bout, fed them cupcakes and showed them the house. Oh, and just because it was 20 degrees and snowing, we went to the zoo! I can't decide which activity was more fun. The roller derby bout was outstanding. Such spectacle! Such glitz! Such physical contact! I couldn't even bear to recruit those girls for rugby, so happy were they in their own niche, slamming each other to the ground and whizzing around the track. I can't decide what my roller derby name would be if I joined. I was thinking Kat Asstrophy, but that's too long for a shirt.
I keep having dreams about Elsa Slam and the other Wrecking Dolls. They were my favorite. I was really bummed to discover that only close personal friends of the Wrecking Dolls could get special shirts. The rest of us fans had some less exciting merchandise options. I want a Scary Schaivo shirt. Or an Anita Cocktail shirt. How fun would I be rocking that to work?
Also, the zoo in the winter time is flipping equally outstanding. I think it's because of all the baby creatures. Yesterday, we watched baby tigers run around, baby monkeys cling to their mothers, and a baby orangutan nursing! Then the mother orangutan drank milk from her own boob, so that got weird. We looked at her funny and she scooped up the baby and hid under a part of the habitat where we couldn't see her.
I celebrated both fun activities by eating 1.5 cupcakes. I felt as though the Cosmo cranberry cupcake was slightly ungood, while the chocolate is as delicious as ever and the red velvet was a stunner. I propose selling cupcakes at Roller Derby events. I could eat the cake portion and sling icing at the skaters I want to lose. Man, I wish I were more punk rock so I would fit in better at roller derby. I find myself wondering which sport is more scary, more tough. Rugby has more collisions, for sure, but this league is just getting started. Maybe by this time next year, I wouldn't even consider getting into the rink with those ladies. Agh! my brain feels full.
