You want to do what with a derby girl?

Last night I got my official uniform - complete with my name and number. How freaking cool. I love it all. The uniform of our team, "the c.andy sn.ipers", is red & white and consists of a red pleated cheerleader skirt, a red/white babydoll t-shirt depicting our logo (below) on the front & skater name (MurderRita) on the back and finished off with knee high red/white striped socks. We also wear our skates (old school roller skates) and a complete set of pads - elbow, wrist, knee - and a helmet.





We got everything in time for a fund raiser we are putting on tomorrow night. All the girls will be in complete skate gear/uniforms at a local pool hall. There, patrons can rent any one of us to shoot a game of pool. Yeah - roller derby girls, in uniform, playing pool, in skates. Perfect situation. To top it off, I haven't played pool consistently for oh, about 10 years.

As a side note: these skirts are not long enough to cover our asses standing up, much less bending over to shoot pool. We all know this and therefore wear novelty panties. Some are striped, some have words on them. I think I'll wear my ruffled butt panties. Maybe I'll raise a few more dollars by totally and completely exploiting my girlie parts. Hard core feminists probably hate girls like me, but the 'feminist' in ~me~ loves the fact we carry around so much power. And I only use my power for good - never for drinks, diamonds or a kiss. Quite a dichotomy - a feminist of sorts showing off a ruffled ass to make a few extra bucks for a good cause. At least no one can call me one-sided on anything, right? ~wink~

So if anyone out there is in Colorado Springs and wants to shoot a game of pool with me (or any other derby girl), come on out and rent me!

Your uniform is giving me an idea for my next burlesque adventure.

I love the fundraiser concept (and I'm a professional fundraiser, btw) and SO wish I lived nearby to come check it all out. Hope it's a success!

Wish I could come out and support the cause. I love going to see the Carolina Rollergirls here in NC.

Definitely get some pictures! I think it sounds fun. I would totally do it. This town isn't big or diverse enough to have a roller derby team. Shit, I don't even think we have a derby of any sort! :)

That is awesome. If I were in Colorado Springs I would totally come play pool. And then beg to join your team so I could have a kick ass shirt and name.
And I think there is nothing wrong with using your powers for diamonds.

Shake what ya momma gave ya!! If you got it, flaunt it! Drop it like it's hot!


Ok, I'm done with listing all those common terms for showing off your body(LOL), but really, how awesome! Hope you guys raise lots of $$!!!

I love the ruffle on the butt undies! It's how my mom got me to be potty trained, the lure of ruffle-butt panties.

Have a great time tomorrow! Good luck!

You rock, but then you already know that! I think your fundraiser sounds like loads of fun. See, you ARE contributing! I think you might be motivating me to lose that weight...oh to be able to wear one of my old cheerleader skirts. ;)

Good luck getting into one of the IVF studies, especially one that pays good money.

How's Miss Allie feeling today?

what a dummy - I meant to add that you should never worry about not commenting! I think I've mentioned before that if someone gets upset or hurt that you don't visit, screw them. I can understand you being involved in your world for now, we all get that way, and ttc is a big deal - IVF, REALLY BIG DEAL...so you need to put your focus & energy there.
