  • The Knee

    The Knee

    I have to write about my knee. I have this list of things next to me that I want to write, some that I actually have to write, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to write about anything until I write about my knee. My left knee. It’s on my mind all […]

  • Almost Wrapped…

    Almost Wrapped…

    Last day of work here at the sitcom. My desk is cleaned off, the final script is sitting next to me, and I’m watching my calendar fill up. But don’t cry — you’re totally invited! Sunday, March 28th (That’s SO SOON): LA Derby Dolls Exhibition Bout: Baby Doll Brawl On Sunday, March 28, the L.A. […]

  • moving up

    Whenever someone from my non-derby life starts to ask me questions about my derby life, I inevitably immediately disappoint them. Quick aside: I feel the need to explain that once you join roller derby your life splits right in two. You have the life you know, the one with your friends and family and loved […]

  • Victory!

    Victory!

    In the past month, my team won our Baby Doll Brawl (see Charlie Chu’s awesome pictures here), I got final approval on the manuscript, went to Thailand, and started at a new job. That’s a lot to process. Now that I have an office again, maybe I’ll be able to do some of it here. […]

  • I love my team of old lady skaters.

    Here’s the promo for my upcoming Baby Doll Brawl (this Sunday!!). Fun fact: during “and fight their way…” that’s me and my Meteorfight teammate Risky a Go-Go taking out two opposing team members, including their jammer, using her arm and my ass. (And then a few seconds later you can see me fling myself onto […]

  • Skate, Skate, Skate

    Skate, Skate, Skate

    It’s that time again. I’m skating in another bout. This time I’m co-captain of my team. It has tapped into all of my dormant director skills and –unpredictably– has resulted in me jonesing to get back on stage. It has also resulted in me giving some long-winded, overly-emotional locker room speeches about teamwork and dedication. […]

  • Go, Meteorfights!

    Go, Meteorfights!

    “Yikes, Holla. That’s a bruise.” “Yeah, I know.” “Have you taken a picture of it yet?” “No.” “You need to. And put it on the Internet and tell people to come to the bout.” “Okay.” Right now I’m staring at my uniform which is hanging from the doorway to my kitchen. My gear is by […]

  • oh, wait. one more.

    My manager came up to me late in practice last night and said, “Heard you went flying off the track. What happened?” I told her and she said, “As long as you weren’t the one getting hit.” “No, ma’am,” I said. “I was doing the hitting.” She beamed, and walked off saying, “That’s my girl.” […]

  • Called Out (or: soup and Vicodin for breakfast)

    I am hurting. Hurting, people. My body is bruised and contused. I am kind of a hot mess, and I think I have about ten minutes before this Vicodin kicks in proper, so let me try and get these stories out. Our little rookie game needs ticket sales. It’s a cheap game, it’s all ages, […]

  • Oh, it’s on, bitches.

So here’s your chance to check out the up-and-coming skaters before they join the ranks of your favorite derby superstars. […]
