Today’s theme song is “Want You Gone“, the credits song from Portal 2. I finished the game yesterday and it was amazing and I wish it didn’t end. I’m a geek, sue me. (Btw, the song has some spoilers so if you’re playing the game and haven’t finished it yet, don’t listen to it! :p)
This week I get to tell you something really excitiiiiiiinnnnggg [insert girly squee here].
Tomorrow is my very first training with Utrecht’s Roller Derby Team, the Dom City Dolls.
[insert another girly squee]
I’m so excited but also so nervous!!!
I wonder how often I’m going to crash and burn (not only because I’ll be stomped down, but because I’m so out of shape that I’ll probably already crash during warming up). Also, I have not worn skates since I was 10.
If you don’t know what Roller Derby is… Watch this:
And now what it looks like in real life…
Keep your fingers crossed I don’t die, tomorrow evening… X_X

…And another interesting bit of news… Tim and I have been looking for a Bengal cat for a long time (I finally convinced him to get a cat YAY [girly squee]) and well, there have been newborns at the breeder on whose waiting list we’re on… So this week, not a lolcat, but what might be our own kitty in the future (although I took a random pic from the breeder’s site).
