I planned to be at the meeting tonight at 7pm. I didn't plan on infecting my dear team mates with my germs...No way could I have missed that meeting though. It was a must meet situation as there is so much to do for our first bout on February 20th.
First off, let's clear up the fact that Stihl Queen WAS at the first practice of the year on Sunday....she had to leave just seconds before we took this team picture. This is also the last picture of me with long hair, as the next day I had it cut up to my shoulders.
Chisel Bit, Jodrlicious, Kileron, Sheeda Bomb, Block N Deckher, Sweet Alyce, Twisted Trixie (so cute kissing my helmet....), Ref. Bryan, Pinkie Lee, Pitchfork, Ammo, and insert invisible Stihl Queen...cuz she was there too...
I apologize for being germy around my friends...We got a lot of things worked out for the 20th bout. Who is doing what, and all that jazz. I have a new responsibility that I was actually thinking about before it was offered and that is to take care of our glass photo display case at the arena. Along with the lovely and talented Gerle Haggard whose artistic skills are notorious because she makes the cutest cards and gifts for people..very creative she is....That will be fun to make. If anyone on the team has a specific photo of themselves that they'd like to see in the display case, please let me know. I'll put it in.

Not sure if I mentioned that I picked up my xray at the hospital, and in typical useless healthcare fashion, no one called to tell me the possible injuries to my knee. However the diagnosis says: "radiographic evidence of a joint space effusion. Mild spurring is present involving the superior pole of the patella. Mild narrowing of the medial joint compartment of the knee. Possible etiologies include: a) injury to the nonosseous structures of the knee; b) joint space infection, c) arthritus, d) occult fracture. I go to the ortho. doctor on Monday.

After the meeting, I was walking to my car and RevRa asked if I wanted to go out for a bit. The bowling alley was having a DJ that night. Of course I went. We had a lovely, relaxing time chatting. I always dig hanging out just bs-ing with any or all of the sk8trgurls...they fucking rule! Each and every one of them are unique and getting to know them is so great.

Depending what happens at the doctor I'll know if I should be playing roller derby or not. It also just comes back to my main rule of life...I'll do it as long as I can live with the worst possible consequences. In my mind, the worst possible consequences is being paralysed from a fall, these falls can happen in practice or at a bout or in a scrimmage...so there's no really perfectly safe way to play. I don't see me ever being ok with that, and yet I don't see me ever leaving this sport either. Puts me in a real crappy position. At some point I hope it becomes clear what to do. Also I know that even if I decide to not play, I'll still want to be involved. I could be a super volunteer and do a lot to assist the league. The website, the display case, anything....I'm just very attached to the ladies and always want to support them.
