In Which I Am A TRAMPIRE!!!!

So you are now reading the blog of an official DOCKYARD DERBY DAMES TRAMPIRE!!!

I am having to physically restrain myself from writing this entire blog post LIKE THIS!!! by the way.  Because seriously, that's how excited I am.  However, I understand that it would be sort of painful to read, so I'm sparing you that sort of post. 

Be appreciative, people.  You have no idea how difficult it is for me to form actual coherent sentences at this point.  I've been mostly reduced to capering around in the middle of my living room gibbering in excitement.  I was doing it in our bedroom, but I got kicked out of there because I was being a tad bit too loud.  Also I may or may not have jumped up and down on top of our bed yelling "I'M A TRAMPIRE!!!" at the top of my lungs while Jeremy was trying to sleep. 

I admit to nothing.

Anyway, so obviously I made a roller derby team!  We had our draft interviews tonight and found out at the end of the evening.  I spent most of the day working myself into a crazed state of nervous excitement and watching the hours absolutely creep by.  I swear there were at least four extra hours in the day today.  By evening I'd pretty much convinced myself there was absolutely no way I was making a team, but I should go anyway and offer everybody else moral support.  When my name was called at the end of the night it actually took a second to sink in because I was half-convinced I'd deluded myself into hearing my name called when it was in fact someone else's.

But it was my name, and so now I'm on a team and everything!  And it is a team of complete and total awesomeness, too, which certainly doesn't hurt anything.  Seriously, these girls are my heroes.  I've got some big skates to fill!

Now I know that I told you I'd announce my derby name tonight if I made a team, but I'm waffling again.  I'm kind of bad about that.  As soon as I know what it is for sure I'll tell you, I promise.  Cross my heart.

So in conclusion, TRAMPIRES!!! WOOOOHOOOOO!!!

I don't even know you and first thing this morning I clicked on your blog to see if you made the team!

Hell yeah you're a Trampire! Allow me to dance around singing, "My sister can kick your ass, nah nah nah na boo boo!" Because it's totally true. I'd call you to express my excitement, but it's like 5 am in Seattle and by now you've probably crashed after your euphoric victory celebration.

Congratulations! I know you've been working toward this and wanting this for quite some time and I'm glad this dream came true for you.

If it were me, just being on skates would be the "derby" part. I wouldn't need anyone to bump into me or knock me down; I'm fully capable of doing that to myself while on skates.

Once again, congratulations and also, I'm glad Connor is doing better now and his medication seems to be working. Hope it lasts a looooooong time.

I for one was STOKED to find out we'd picked you!! :) You were already one of my favorite gals, and I'm so so happy we get to be teammates! This is going to be an awesome season! Get ready for massive crafting, slightly inappropriate innuendo at all times, and more texts than you could comfortable shake a stick at... though why anyone would shake sticks at text messages is beyond me... Yeah I need coffee. Hahaha welcome, welcome, welcome!!

Congratulations! That is great news!

CONGRATULATIONS! I've no doubt you'll kick butt... or teeth? fangs? Wait, -you- are the vampire so no fang kicking. I just confused myself...CONGRATS!

Megan said...

XOXO lady.

So excited. You all are going to be awesome additions to the team. Your creativity, intelligence, and drive will fit right in ;)

See you tonight, TRAMPIRE!!!!

In truth, my dreams for you never touched on images of my daughter the "Trampire", but weirdly I can see how it works. Horrors! I may have to read TWILIGHT or old Anne Rice novels to pick up the innuendos in the team members' names. As usual, I'm very proud of your hard work and enthusiasm. That team picked themselves a gem for a new member. Way to go! Congrats! Love you.

Congratulations! TRAMPIRES! WHOO!

Now that we know I'll confess that when I read yesterday's post I thought "well the Trampires have the coolest name, I hope she gets to be a Trampire." YES!!!
