For those of you who don't know me, I've been dreaming of the rollerderby seriously for five years (I thought it was cool for probably twenty). My sister of 39 has told me many times that it was her dream to be in the derby since she was in elementary school, and well, I've always wanted to be like my older sister. Unfortunately, the closest league, the Harrisburg Area Roller Derby (H.A.R.D.) is two hours away. So I've been attending their bouts for the last year, dreaming of the day I graduate (last monday!!!) and move to a place with a league of its own (San Antonio or Austin?), or my roommate and his work buddies drum up enough interest to start a Centre County league.
So I got this FB update from Neil Gaiman tuesday, where he talks about meeting some derby girls, and I almost shat myself with excitement when I realized he meant Joan Of Dark, a cool chick from LSG. He posted links to her blog, and to when she named a coffee after him.
So yeah, this is me being jealous, and super excited and awed and happy for someone I've never met, and I hope to someday be surrounded by such wonderful events!
Oh, and I am totally going to make that latte!
