Simple greens

It's been a while since I've done a makeup post. The depths of winter don't really inspire me much, but it's been sunny lately, and I'm ready for some pretty :) Here's a light splash of color for the workday.

- All over the lid - the lighter green from the Jealous duo from Urban Decay's Theodora palette
- In the outer corner - the darker green from the Jealous duo
- Along lower lash line - UD eye pencil in Mildew
- Cover Girl Clump Crusher mascara

I want adventure in the great wide somewhere
I want it more than I can tell
And for once it might be grand to have someone understand
I want so much more than they've got planned...

- Beauty and the Beast

Major Magnet is HERE for iOS!!!

This is an awesome game, and I'm not just saying that because my baby brother was the lead programmer :) I am not really into games, but even I had to admit, this game has a pretty cool concept.

Please download and spread the word!

Life after derby

I was a bit vague in my previous entry when I mentioned that I had retired. I'm going to attempt to explain myself here.

After the Psychos won the championship in July, I took 6 weeks off on personal LOA to take care of my non-derby life (much of which had been sorely neglected as I focused on home team season), and once I was gone, it was hard to come back. Not just physically, but emotionally - you become acutely aware of the fact that the world does in fact keep spinning without you, and you miss so much - not just the big important stuff like strategy and official business, but also little stuff like inside jokes - and it's hard as hell to get caught up. It's hard as hell to re-form the bonds that were weakened by your absence.

And that's the thing - it would've been easy enough for me to catch up on the official derby stuff. I considered myself a knowledgeable enough and skilled enough skater that I could've caught up on that just fine. The bonds, though …

omagod I am drowning in knitting projects!
