snippity! derbity!

i love my tiny scissors. they cut through little bits of felt so seamlessly. ๐Ÿ™‚

i watched like 3 episodes of the ghost whisperer [b/c i’m so awesome, right? haha] last night and just cut tiny flowers.
those little flowers measure about an inch at the widest width. so my little scissors are only inches long! 5 inches to be exact! ๐Ÿ™‚
i hope everyone had a lovely weekend ๐Ÿ™‚
open house was tonight – my first year without any kiddos! sometimes i feel kinda left out!
but i really enjoy what i am doing…and am still learning more and more every day.
derby practice was fun tonight!
we did some “push drills” – about 10 girls stand in a “conga line” – the girl in front directs by leaning, etc, and the girl in the way back pushes everyone – nobody but her is pushing/skating. it was TOUGH on my turn! but i think i did pretty well ๐Ÿ™‚
main thing to work on = turn around toe stop. i fell SOOO much last week attempting it!  my toe stop even came off! i need to get that stop down!
next week are assessments. i hope i can at least become an active machete bettie ๐Ÿ™‚
[that’s the rec league team!]
also….still thinking up derby names.
daniel really likes “the roxic avenger…”
i really like “grrfeisty” but there’s a girl who’s got “grrrlfriday” – do they look/sound too much alike?
what about “the cuban missile” or “the cuban missile crisis”? haha
i would LOOOOOVE to hear some derby names – got any ideas??? ๐Ÿ™‚
if anyone comes up with a super sick derby name [that isn’t already registered] i will so send them an amazing surprise. i am having so much trouble!



  1. i am too lazy to cut felt! especially lots of it. In fact.. im too lazy to cut lots of things.

    hmm.. derby names.. i dont even know where to start!

    Im useless at thinking up names for the pub quiz to! Our last one "dont quiz in my mouth" haha dirty.

    i like roxic avenger.. i think that firl has already nabbed the grr things. is there a specific word u want in it?

  2. Little Miss Feisty (or maybe just Miss Feisty)

    Roxy Odd Sox lol. Okay so not very imaginative lol.

    Bedfordshire Rollergirls are my local team and there is someone who goes by Zombie Stardust which is kinda funny!

  3. Roxy and Roll/Roxy Roll
    Rock em' Sock 'em Roxy/Rock em' Sock 'em Rodriguez

    I liked Lisa's only I'd change to T-Rox!

    I"m going to be thinking of these forever now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. claire-that's funny because when i'm lazy i cut instead of sew ๐Ÿ™‚ i wanted something associated with roxy or feisty or even foxy!
    han-ha! holy cow these are so awesome! zombie stardust is awesome! there's a girl in houston named "rosie the ribhitter" – which i think is awesome! i like names with roxy and feisty!
    traci-haha that'd be super cute. too bad one of the rec league coach is bunny!

  5. lisa – ya! a dinosaur theme! ๐Ÿ™‚
    katie-haha i love it! and ya, t-rox is cool!
    indecisive– someone's name is "cuban menstrual crisis" haha isn't that awesome? chick norris is amazing!! too bad it's taken ๐Ÿ™

  6. I like the roxic avengera and T-rox, but you will always be grrrfeisty to me!

    why not keep it simple?
    foxy roxy

  7. You are the CUTEST Roxy!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ah I looked ALL over for left handed scissors the other day and couldn't find any anywhere! What a bummer. Haha. I was trying to cut yarn a while ago to make fringe for a scarf and it seriously took me over 20 minutes. I can't cut with normal scissors! Hahaha.

    I totally think you should be grrfeisty.

  8. Hey there! Just came across your blog and notice your fresh meat status! Welcome to the awesome world of roller derby! I just finished out my first season (Rubber City Rollergirls). Good times, my friend!! I like your blog too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck with the derby name (I'm "Hit em Lo' btw)

  9. I don't know is this is too late or if you came up with a name but I thought of:
    Feisty frenzy!
