I can't believe I'm considering this

But after hearing from Joe that clynne belongs to a club, and seeing a profile of it on CNN this morning, I'm thinking about joining a new to me sport.

Roller Derby.

Yea, I know it sounds silly and kitchsy...but after watching CNN this morning, I thought it looked kinda fun.

I said the same thing about Square Dancing in 1993. And to quote Joe, "Square Dancin's been good to me!"

Lucky for me there's a local league/team that meets at the roller skating rink down the street.

I might have to go look into this a bit more.

Wonder if I could convince L from the gym to join too...she'd kick ass!

It looks like a lot of fun, and what great exercise!

Unfortunately, I can't skate.

Looks like it doesn't matter...I haven't had skates on in what...20 years? I at least remember the basics.

I couldn't skate 20 years ago, either. I think they'd mind if my skills consisted of standing still very tensely and praying no one came too near.

That might be a problem. =)

Randy said you need a Nom De Rink ... and suggested a couple.

I told him "Jennifer H. Christ" was too long and not catchy enough.

If he comes up with something good, let me know.

I thought I heard him mutter something about "Jen-der Bender", but it's difficult to catch what he says under optimal circumstances.

And now that I've put words in his mouth, he'll deny ever saying it. :)

Nom de Rink? The Librarian. Because the contrast between what people imagine a librarian to be and what you would be, would be too funny. And your children could then say, "My Mom isn't a librarian, she's the librarian.
