Sk8er Girl: In a Post MJ World

Kitti announced a last-minute impromptu skate nite last night, and since I desperately needed another activity that wasn’t running I jumped all over it. It seems horrid to say, but Michael Jackson’s death improved the quality of the music at the rink. I knew maybe 30% of the songs this time, instead of the usual 10%. Shame, though, that…

Sk8er Girl: Hey There, Stranger

My convention weekend started a day early — I’m spending the night with Natalie at her hotel so I can be that much closer to the airport in the morning. We went swimming after work (yay, pool!) and then Natalie joined our girl party at the skating rink. Man…after running/walking 100 miles in April, skating was a lot easier…

Millennicon Memories # 2: The Queen of Karaoke

…speaking of Ice Capades

Local boy Scott Hamilton came to visit Ingram today and talk about his book, The Great Eight: How to Be Happy (Even When You Have Every Reason to Be Miserable). My favorite bullet point? "Think Positive, Laugh, and Smile like Kristi Yamaguchi."

Sk8er Girl: Ice Capades

Okay…I lied about it being cold outside and warm in the rink. It was SO incredibly frigid at the Skate Center last night, that one of the girls wore her hat and scarf the whole time. I still broke a sweat while skating, but all our timeouts were shortened considerably, because if you stayed still for too long, your…

Sk8er Girl: Birthday Princess

Being a Murphyist, I’ve found that the more I absolutely dread things, the more fun they turn out to be. Case in point: Adult Skate Birthday Night. The Ingram Grrls were exceptionally disappointed with the last event, and we were…um…a little vocal about it. Okay, okay, so short of tying Mike to a chair with duct tape and whipping…
