Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes

Not Interested

My very first, hard and fast, rule is: don’t skate and date.

After breaking up with someone you’ve skated with and been intimate with, things get awkward.

The skate rinks are like the children; time with each needs to be doled out carefully and fairly.

When can I go to that one? When are you going to this one?

And, if it was a bad breakup, there’s no discussion about any of that


It really only had to happen to me once for me to learn.

(I dabbled once more after that, but he moved to Phoenix, and it wasn’t serious.)

Sk8 Saturday: The Bus Stop

This is going to be my new roller skating dance step… Now, to figure out how to make it happen on wheels, especially the heel clicks at 00:51, but I’m gonna work it out!

Save Our Skating Rinks!

Its My Skate NightWorld on Wheels in L.A. will be closing Sunday, June 23rd, 2013 unless they receive 10,000 signatures. Even if you aren’t from/in/around (or don’t even like) California, please sign

this petition

I am not much of an activist and I usually am not the type of person to pass these things on, but I really (REALLY) believe that Roller Skating has a ‘higher power’ influence on the people who skate. The people I skate with are like my family and when I can’t skate it makes me crazy (remember when I was broken?) — some of my skating friends are like that, too.

Imagine if you were one of those people/kids who use this rink as their outlet, where will they go now?!? What will they do when they’re bored? Eat? Play video games? Hang out on the street? Start doing drugs?Thank you

The link for the petition is also in my sidebar, just in case you don’t sign it today and you change your mind after this post has disappeared amongst the rest of my rantings. But, remember there is only 18 more days to get the 10,000 signatures needed, so please tell your family and friends and anyone you know who thinks that they might ever want to roller skate, or have an 80’s-night skate party, or who likes to have a great time…
