(no subject)

 Just wondering: Does anyone drop by this group at all anymore? I am finding my way back to LJ after a long absence because I'd like to get back to writing more personal stuff again. And I am also seeking some new friends from back down south, in Virginia, NC and DC - I'm originally from North Carolina (raised; born in Virginia) and I now live in Illinois, but try to get down to visit friends & family at least once a year. Feel free to message me here if it looks like we have some things in common, or add me and let me know. I'll probably add you back if you seem halfway interesting. :)

REMINDER: Roller Derby. TOMORROW. DC Armory. DOORS AT 3PM!

The sun is shining and the Snowpocalypse of 2010 is but a distant memory. But DAMN it's still colder than a witch's uh...wait, this is a family fun event, uh...colder than a roller derby queen's heart when she goes in to massacre the opposing jammer.

Jammer? What?

No, that is not a nice Amish lady responsible for the tasty treats on your toast in the morning, goober. In roller derby, the jammer is the skater with the star on her helmet, and she scores points for her team by passing opposing players on the track.

So here's the deal:

There's a biggo renaissance of roller derby all over the damn country. Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page made a feature film, leagues are popping up all over like crazy, and you, YOU have a seriously badass (ranked 9th on the East Coast, dig?) league RIGHT HERE at the DC Armory.

Righteous women on wheels? Check.
Speeds that'll make you wish you'd sat farther back? Check.
Suicide seats? Double Check.
Family fun, facepainting for the kiddies *and* beer? Checkity check. Oh yes.

On Saturday, December 19, Design Within Reach of Adams Morgan, D.C.'s coolest furniture showroom, hosts the 4th Annual Holiday Booty Market.

Denada Design will be showcasing some of her famous scarves and 60bugs will have awesome hand-printed and -embroidered shirts and accessories for the hip little ones on your list. All vendors are Crafty Bastards veterans and thus awesome!

The first 100 shoppers will get a fun goody bag and there will be snacks and temporary tattoos provided all day at this free event!

In TWO short days...Give Thanks for Roller Derby!

It's that time of the month again. No, I'm not talking about redoing the chore wheel at your group house or washing the car (every month? holy CRAP you keep a clean vehicle) or even calling up Aunt Marge to tell her you love her (and hope she keeps sending those "birthday" checks every 30 days).

Nope. While of course we're thankful for chores done and clean cars and most def Aunt Marge, I'm talking about GIVING THANKS FOR ROLLER DERBY!

That's right, once again it's time to put on your party shoes and haul butt down to the DC Armory THIS SATURDAY for some rockin' sockin' four wheeled action!


Amazingly athletic skaters!
Serious scintillating scoring!
Wild and wonderful halftime entertainment!
Beer for which I have no alliteration!


So come on down to the DC Armory in TWO SHORT DAYS which means THIS SATURDAY and give thanks for all these fantastic women skating around and knocking the everliving crap out of each other, ok? fancy dancy graphic right hereCollapse )

Gyno who is GLBT&fat friendly&pro-choice? Bethesda and/or Arlington

So, a friend and I are in the same boat, we're both older than one is supposed to be when one starts going to the gyno, and neither of us have ever been. We're both fat-but-not-unhealthy, can be labeled as queer for convenience's sake,would prefer not to see a gyno who assumes that of course we intend to have kids someday&will reply to 'I'm not planning to have kids' (we're both cisgender F) with 'here are your birth control options', and won't blink upon hearing a sexual history that includes all genders and has a slightly fuzzy count. Obviously, we want a doctor or doctors who are sensitive on glbt&fat&choice&everything issues.
My friend is in Bethesda, I'm in Crystal City, so reccs for docs in both or either of those areas, or in between would be ideal. A doc who wouldn't be terribly fazed by a nervous woman breaking into tears would be good. Thanks!
