Welcome to roller derby!!! :) I've been a non-skating official for the past 2 years (Gravity Kills, named for my skating style, hence why I'm a NON-skating official. :) ) My sister's a derby girl (Stabbity Ann, #187), my husband is a referee (REFLMAO), my brother's a ref in training (Dick Move), and my mom is the league videographer/unofficial 'league mom' (DerbyMom). Derby's done amazing things for my family. I'm in the best shape I've been in since early college, my kid brother has gone from near-shut-in to avid attendee and up-and-coming referee, my hubby's in great shape and well known as a well-informed and fair ref, my mom's learning tons of new tech to be a better video editor, and my sister has more confidence and strength than I've ever seen in her before. (She can also launch me a solid foot with a 'love tap' from her hip.) I hope you do check out more derby... keep an eye out when you travel, if you get the time. There are a lot of leagues out there, and we'd love to have you! :)

There's the Nerd Fitness blog: http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/ It's awesome. I also recommend the Couch to 5k workout. I just completed it on an elliptical machine (my knees are crap, so I needed a little help) and hope to work up to doing it on land. http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml

Rule 0 of the official Women's Flat-Track Derby Association is a variant ("Don't be a douchebag"... probably because it IS a women's organization, with very few actual dicks amongst them.) But I prefer yours, especially considering there's a larger contingent of men in the Zebra Zone. I do need to get one of the Penny Arcade shirts for wear in the center track... it's a good reminder for refs, skaters, and other officials. :)

Reading your posts has become a treasured part of my day. I love the way you write, and you're definitely on my List of People I'd Love to Have a Beer With. Also, last night, Wheaton's Law may have made it into the official charter and code of conduct of Roc City Roller Derby's Referee Squad. All agreed that it should be rule #1. :)

Brilliantly said. I was finally diagnosed with Bipolar II 7 years ago. I too became a full-fledged atheist/skeptic shortly after I started the road to finding the right meds... each one changed me in a new and interesting (if not always productive) way, and I've been fascinated by the process. I've been on fairly stable meds for about 4 1/2 years now. It's hard to watch my loved ones and friends who are in similar straits but are unwilling to go through the process of finding the right medication to help them. I try to tell them how wonderful life is now that I'm not fighting my brain at every twist and turn, but they just aren't willing to try. Sad and frustrating.

A DM friend in college had a d100. He called it his "hit die". We had a particularly obnoxious person playing with us, and whenever he got out of hand, the DM would chuck it in his direction. Dented a wall once when Shad was being a particular fucktard. Good times. :)

That is brilliant. It's funny, I've loved reading your stuff about interacting with your kids and all the things you've tried to (and succeeded in) teach them. My husband and I just decided that we're having a kid next year. Now I'm taking notes. :)

Word. I just started playing GH3 and I'm loving it... and my husband, benevolent guy that he is, just bought Rock Band for our circle of would-be-rocker friends to play with. Can't wait to try it!!!
