I used to play roller derby and now I think I'm Martha Stewart.
(Also, ADA Barba from the current season gets the same reaction.)
@Emby Aw, I want to hug your mom and kick your sister in the shins. And then start a countdown until one of the crappy machines breaks.
@Xanthophyllippa Yes, please share!
@RK Fire Yeah, dress pants and I are not friends anymore. The moment early in my derby career when I tried to squeeze between two things and couldn't because my ass was suddenly too big and stick-outy(after a lifetime of pancake-flatness) is still fresh in my mind, and I've been retired for a year and a half.
@RK Fire Heh. You're not sounding obnoxious- ask me about skirt shopping with derby thighs. :/ Tailoring is the best thing, basically.
@RK Fire Yeah, I have a similar problem - try measuring clothes that fit you well flat, and ask etsy sellers for the corresponding measurements of their items? It's kept me from any TRULY tragic missteps(although sleeve/armhole placement still gives me fits, and is hard to measure for with any great degree of accuracy)
@RK Fire Try Etsy, too, to supplement as needed? I thrift most of what I wear, but am still guilty of the Target t-shirt stock-up. "One good shirt, not four crap shirts" is a concept I am still trying to internalize
@cosmia roasted broccoli(& cauliflower!) are much less locker-roomish. Toss in olive oil, spread a single layer across a roasting pan, salt, and roast at highish(450) heat for 20 minutes or so. <3 broccoli!
@ba-na-nas I am curious if the Omega Paw litter box(BEST THING EVER if you have cats) would lessen the danger involved in the pregnant ladies + litter-cleaning equation. Any idea?
@themmases Seconded! I bought a short(4') drinking-water-approved hose extension that screws onto my kitchen faucet to facilitate beer-making and the large amounts of water transfer it entails. I already want to leave it on all the time, but I would DIE of happiness if my faucet had an actual faucet sprayer. they are the best.
