caution: daunting task ahead

January 30, 2009

well, i’ve been so busy working and playing video games that i haven’t spent too much time online and therefore i have over 1000 posts that are unread in my RSS feeder.  today, goal is to bring it to 200 or less in my 10-minute-“reward”-internet-break times.  (if i stay on task for an hour or get a big project done, i’ll reward myself with 10 minutes of “free-time” on the internet, it keeps me motivated.)

I’m in pajamas and about to go to a bar… without changing.  Providence Roller Derby is having their paJammer party at the Scurvy Dog, starts now, 9PM, so I’ll arrive fashionable and fashionably late.

I’m paying attention (somewhat) to the PC / Syracuse game, and while I don’t tend to follow the Big East, they’re a force to be reckoned with this college basketball season!  I mean I’m actually looking forward to going to one of the PC basketball games this season.

In other sports news… let’s talk about the Australian Open, it’s HOT down there!  Even though she was struggling something fierce, Serena pulled out the win!  What an effing amazing athlete!  …and in about 6 hours, Roddick/Federer.  I wish I had me some cable TV right about now.  I wonder if it’ll be online.  I’ll check on that when I get home from the bar, but if you know, don’t hold out on me now!

I better get out of here and get a couple free drinks in before it’s too late.  Work tomorrow will be a struggle with both jobs pulling at my strings…

You’ve heard of street smarts and book smarts, what about sex smarts?  How long have Homo sapiens had sex for “fun” and not just for reproduction?  A psychologist from the University of New Mexico is interested to find out.

John Krasinski, the dreamy guy, Jim from the American version of The Office, aired his directorial debut this week at Sundance and it has gotten a lot of press.  From what I understand, while John was attending Brown University, he was involved in a one-run play that was a narrative of author David Foster Wallace, Brief Interviews With Hideous Men.  The book was so inspiring, even as a narrative of short stories, that he took to adapting it to a screenplay.  JK was even fortunate enough to get David’s personal blessing to proceed with the project.  More info through the link.  And at the link there’s even a quick snippet of the film for those of us who couldn’t make it to Sundance this year ;).

I have wanted to read some material from DFW, so maybe this will be my jumping off point.

roller derby

I’ve passed my first assessment (skating skills) and now I’ve started my contact practices with providence roller derby.  Within the next month, I hope to complete the contact assessment and be into scrimmage practice.  Then, after a bit of that business I’ll be able to test for the scrimmaging skills and be qualified to bout!  wooooooo hoooo.  

“But what’s your derby name?” you ask.  As soon as I pass my contact assessment, I’ll be eligible to choose a name and number.  I’ve done a lot of brainstorming and there have been quite a few suggestions thrown around by the girls in the league, but nothing’s really struck me yet.  Yet…

So, for the next couple of weeks I’ll be taking suggestions for my derby name and number.  I hope to hear from all of you who stop by and check things out.

When the weather is a little cooler, I’ll wear this one.

If the sun’s feeling frisky, I’ll break this one out.
