Had a Rec League roller derby game today. I played for "team pink". It was a wonderful game. Low-stress because I wasn't really invested in the score. We lost by a landslide but I didn't really care. My goals were to keep up, get some good blocks in and have a good time. I succeeded on all counts. I had one GREAT block where I came from the back of the pack and knocked a jammer right out. On several occasions I was in the right place at the right time. It was awesome. I usually feel so useless out there, so this was a nice change. I wasn't like an all-star player or anything, but I didn't make a complete fool of myself.

It was a "closed-door" game so spectators were not invited. Georgia (and Daddy who had to come to watch her) were the only exceptions because of the breast feeding thing. Georgia happily slept through the first half of the game and then woke up and just LOVED watching the second half. Brightly coloured girls going in circles are AWESOME! She was totally silent for the whole thing. She smiled at every roller girl that came up to chat with her, and then babbled in the back of the car all the way home. It was like she was telling us about what she'd just seen. It was super-cute.

In other news, I have started my Ravelympics project... my very first sweater. I am kinda cheating in that I am making it for Georgia. I just don't feel any real desire to make a sweater for myself. Seems like a lot of work for something that might not end up fitting any better than something I could buy. For me I'll stick to hats, scarves, mitts and fun little things.

Any other knitters or crocheters out there, or if you just want to see what I'm working on, feel free to check me out on Ravelry.

Old post I started writing on Monday. Might as well throw it up even though I'm not sure where I was going with this and am not feeling a need to finish it.

This weekend I went to an event here in town. I had just intended to show up, hit a few classes and be home by dinner. When I got there I ran into William, and feast sounded interesting so he talked Georgia and I into staying. It's the first time I've done an event without another adult that arrived with me in a long time, and the first time with a baby. It was interesting. William also talked me into playing with them during the dancing. I got the privilege of playing a recreation of the ancient Egyptian equivalent of a tambourine ;) Even with that simple an instrument I wasn't "great" but I had fun. Georgia even enjoyed the music. They had a harpsichord there! I've never seen one of them played live, so that was amazing.

Anyway, it got me to thinking about all the different things I've tried and done in the context of the SCA, a sort of SCA resume or just a summary of experiences.
