I'm the last one on earth

to read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. . . I got the audiobook to listen to for my drive to Bradenton last week and I was hooked! I resisted it for years because I got so burned out on the whole vampire story, but this is quite refreshing and really good. I'd recommend it, but I'm sure you've read it already.

I promised pictures from Halloween Intoxiskate-- let me preface them by saying that we won Most Original costume at the party and a 50 buck prize!!!

Yep, we're Zombie Vegan Chefs-- wearing bloodied chef coats from Sublime and wielding bloody cleavers. Crowd pleasin!

The real crowd pleasin, of course, is boys in their underpants, which is not a halloween gimmick but a regular thing on Tuesdays at Gold Coast. Prudes be damned!

Here are some of my favorite people AND favorite costumes: first of all are Henry (Lulu Martinez!) and Robert, along with a priest-- I don't know the good Father.

Deb as the divine Tooth Fairy, complete with a bloody chainsaw, bloody teeth garland, and "Give me your teeth" written in spidery, delicate script across her wings in blood. I LOVE HER! She's another one of the crafty derby grrls. With her is her man Felix, who was a scary killer. He is a great derby husband.
and here is spite sprite, who along with newt and i got blood everywhere.

here we are with the fabulous Katie (Jackie O'Crashes), my derby SISTER and, as you can see in this photo, the reincarnation of the Olivia/Betty Page cheetah lady. She had the best costume.

I haven't read Twilight yet either! I also burned out on the vampire books from the 90s. Great pics from skating. The underwear pantie boys are there every Tuesday??? I'm so there...
