I Have Landed in an Alternate Universe.

Which I realized on Saturday evening, at a Roller Derby after-party with professional derby girls and Canadians.

Let's face it, guys--I'm not cool enough for any part of that scenario.

On a related note, Canadians really are as nice as everyone always says.  At the bout, the emcee hosted a game of scavenger hunting musical chairs.  One of the items the players had to find was a Canadian coin.  There was one group of Canadian fans.  They very politely gave every participant money from their pockets.

Also, the half-time show was a professional hula-hooper.

I swear to god I'm not making this up.

And no, I wasn't smoking anything, either.

(True:  Have you ever seen Roller Derby?  Because you need to.  Also, where can I take hula hoop lessons?)


  1. Ahhhh! This is so awesome! Just last year, I added going to a roller derby to my bucket list!

    1. DO IT. It is so much fun, and every person I encountered from the crowd to the players to the fabulous-leotard-clad queen announcer was awesome.
