Things that don't suck

I've now been told by three different people that my Monday Miscellanea post was too depressing. Sorry bout that. Sometimes the world is a make-you-want-to-poke-yourself-in-the-eye kinda place. So I thought I'd counter with a things that don't suck.

Ya know what doesn't suck? Roller derby. In honor of the 2010 roller derby season, here's a question for y'all: What's your roller derby name? I'm not sure if there's a formula for arriving at one of these like there is with porn names.

Mine? Rainbow Blight. Complete with rainbow-striped tights. Cuz that's how I roll, bitchez.

  2. Now this is my kind of post!

    Dee Plorable.

  3. I haven't come up with one yet (I'm fresh meat for Hammer City in Hamilton at the moment). I wanted Prose Hack but its been taken. I'm now thinking

    a) Bitch N Sink (or Kitsch N Sink)

    b) Trash diet (or Crash diet)

    Any opinions?

    @ Heather: I like Trash Diet. You're right, Prose Hack would be awesome.

    I was Bashin Betty for the one year I did derby.

  8. When I joined roller derby in 2006 I stole my daughter's mischievous imaginary friend's name: "Bombadee." Later I found out from urban dictionary it meant big breasted which sat alright with me as a nursing mom at the time. Though my teammates mostly just refer to me as "Bomb" which I also love because it implies I hit hard.

    If I ever changed my derby name I'd for sure be VaJaJay Blocker and my tag line would be "Vaginomite!"

    Go Houston!

    Ha! This is a great thread. I don't have a derby name and can't possibly come up with one, but I love your names. You people make me happy!
