We knew one of the skaters, & friends kept telling us how much fun it was to go to bouts. We made it to the championship bout of the 2008 season and I was bowled over--I had never been this drawn to any kind of sport before.

High heels, kittens, gummi bears, tiny frogs, hula hooping, good beer, good chocolate and cheap wine.
Reality TV, Hershey's kisses, phoney people, the misuse of the word "literally" and spiders. I don't care that they eat pests, I will literally kill them if they come near me.
Housecat. I like to lay in the sun and be pet behind the ears. But don't think I won't attack on the smallest whim--and I'm stronger than I look.
