I am on the flyer for our next home bout, which I’m not skating in, because I’m not skating this season.
Kind of bums me out.

At the point, I was running on adrenaline, a lot of caffeine, and 4.5 hours of sleep. I’m dancing. Obviously, that is what dancing looks like.
So, I finally finished the aforementioned Whip It apron for my leaguemate Atomic Bombino. Overall, I’m pretty pleased with it. Since I was already looking gross and had my awesome fake glasses handy, I decided to try to replicate that whole “I’m Ellen Page and I’m totally cute even when I’m supposed to be a nerd or something” thing.
The back has these weird crossed straps - you have to put the thing on over your head essentially - and it fits a little odd on me, but the girl I made it for is both taller and bigger than me, so I imagine it will fit better on her.

This is my headshot for this season, not that I’m skating… but I still get a headshot.
I have kind of a fat head in this picture, but I think that’s better than last year’s attempting-to-look-coy bad posture.
I need to make the elastic on my mask longer, because if I wear it for more than ten minutes it starts to dig into the skin behind my ears.
Heather is one of my leaguemates. She is an AMAZING skater and seriously one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Also, she’s a total babe and is an engineer or something impressive. Kudos to her for being the featured skater this month!
