Me and my Bright Ideas!!!!

This week I watched an awesome movie, Whip It.  It was about roller derby and was super fun.  (Just so you know it did have some cursing and girls in short skirts in case you decide to watch it.)  Back to me and my bright ideas, I decided that I want to be a roller derby girl....I spent all night thinking of a name.  I am hesitant to post it here because I'm afraid someone will steal my awesome name but my new name is *drumroll please*  Drew Bruisehermore!!!!  I also decided that I needed to start training so I stopped by Roll About on my way home for work, forked out my $5.50 and put on my skates.  I did discover that Roll About is probably the best place to start training because I spent the entire time dodging little kids and I also got to do the Wipeout song (the dj says wipeout and we all fall).  The first wipeout hurt so I just watched how the kids fell and did it like them after that and it was much better.  Geez, I sound old! When I left I still had about 45 minutes before they closed but I just couldn't handle the pain I had going on in my skate.  I didn't realize how bad it was until I got home.  I know that this picture might turn some peoples (Rachel) stomachs but I wanted to be sure that you knew I was telling the truth and not over exaggerating the size of my blister!  Lets just say it really really hurts!  Can I call into work due to not being able to walk.....because I went skating for an hour??????
