Dixie in pictures…sorta..

So, after reviewing the pictures from Dixie… sorry! No way in heck am I posting the majority of those on here! Haha! So here is the watered down version of the Dixie pictures!

This was what our milk said! How cute is that???

This place was right next to our hotel. I have no idea what pokar de ases is supposed to mean, but it’s really funny!

Us in our locker room after the bout. The Dixie Derby Girls were kind enough to give us each little bottles of Southern Comfort in goodie bags!

Touretta got challenged in the parking lot of the bar to a random leg wrestling match. Which she happily agreed to, then kicked the other girls ass in about two seconds. It probably helps that Touretta tends to stay sober… 😉


Helluva and one of the Dixie Girls.

This is what the hallway looked like to me after the after party. Why I needed photographic evidence of this.. I don’t know.

And that is it! Those are the only “safe” pics I can post. Ain’t life a bitch? 😉

Kindle holder

This was going to be a longer post, but we have been SOOO busy at the shop today! This is my first chance to sit down, and that’s only because I have two other workers here!
So knitting content! I whipped this up, out of some yarn that I dyed. I wasn’t happy with the color at first, and I wanted to see how color fast my dye jobs really are. I also wanted to see if I could felt in a front load washer.
The answers are, very damn color fast thank you very much, and YES!

So a quickie kindle cover! I still need to sew the button on to hold it shut! Pretty cute though huh? And after felting, I absolutely love the color combo! I’m going to have to do another skein in the same colors!

A very brief update…

Until Dill gets done with his meeting, and can find the camera cord for me. I have pictures to update, but I must delete the nekkid ones from the bus.
So here is the update:
My family rules. They got me a kindle as an early birthday present! It is everything I thought it would be.. but in a much smaller package! The most amazing, useful, piece of tech I’ve ever owned.
I have to move the horse and llama, and found the perfect barn. Now I just need a trailer…
I dyed the craziest yarn ever, and turned it into a felted clutch.
Dill got a rubber chicken tattooed on his finger. For real. And he took his mom with him when he did it!
My hair is bright, bright pink!
There is a small amount of drama going on. People being shady. But fear not, it only causes the giggles from me.
Training has stepped up, and I’m currently covered in bruises, from my hip bones, forearms, and down to my hands. They look awful.
Okay, that is it! I’ll do a picture post later today. Send mental thoughts for Dill to finish up! I have actual knitting to post dangit!

Naptown Vs. Dixie Part 3

Right, so here comes the fun stuff! After celebrating in our locker room, our cell phones going crazy with congrats texts and happy messages, we screamed, did shots, and loaded our selves onto the bus for more screaming. Seriously, it was the loudest I think we have ever been! After a quick roll call, we headed to the after party.
The bar was small, but really cool. Our wrist bands got us free PBR. I am of the opinion that PBR should always be free. Actually, I’ve never had more than a sip of PBR in my life… until that after party. I was on a dang mission people!
We hung out with some of the other Dixie girls. The one’s I talked to were really nice, and asking us for advice, and wondering aloud what happened between last years game and this years game. We chatted with them, told them our opinions (work as a team, help your jammer, etc) and even told them some of our favorite drills to run that taught us about working as a pack.
Some of them fetched us beers, danced with us, overall very cool. Once again, hard feelings were left on the track, which is the way it should be. Everyone seemed to be in a good mood, and we decided to take the party to our hotel.
With a quick pause in the parking lot for some random leg wrestling, we piled into the bus and (OMITTED) which was CRAZY! Haha! And of course the bus had this private back room, and some of us totally (OMITTED)! We banned those pics from ever being published! Hopefully none of us ever want to run for office!
Cozy, aka Traffic Jammer, pulled into a liquor store on the way back to the hotel, because he’s awesome. A quick run in for drinks, and we went back to the hotel. Sweet C and Will went on the most epic of all epic quests for food. I decided I could be hungry for another 5 hours until the free hotel breakfast opened up. Which, as roller girls know, is hard. After a bout you are HUNGRY. Beyond all reason hungry! I was still partying though, and didn’t feel like wandering. Right after Sweet C left, my fellow roller girl, (OMITTED) felt the after math of her drinks, and got a bit sick. Helluva and I spent an hour or so helping her, getting her in the shower, cleaning her up, and tucking her into bed to sleep it off. Thank goodness Helluva was there, since I don’t handle the puke too well.
I headed over to the “party room” where some of the girls were still carrying on. (OMITTED)(OMITTED)(OMITTED)(OMITTED) Bwahaha! After that craziness, with Sweet C and Will back, I decided to crash out! It was probably 3 or so in the morning, and with several drunk texts to Dill, I crashed out!
My growling tummy woke me up at 5:55 a.m. We got dressed, and headed down for some yummy bagels, eggs, milk and oj! After dressing and packing, it was back on the bus for the very, very, long and rainy trip back home!
When we finally got back to our practice space, fans and family were there, greeting us with cheers, signs, chocolate covered strawberries and cookies!
And of course, my favorite part:

I’ll post more pictures later!
