had such a wonderful day at work yesterday! i am so happy i've stayed on at lush - it's not even work! it's just lovely getting to hang out with neat people, and talk to customers about products and things i adore. and sometimes, sell them something that may change their lives!
i also found out that i'm on the roster for the dustbowl invitational in bakersfield, CA. it's not a league sanctioned event, but hey, these are my only chances to bout, so fuck yeah i'm going to take them when they come up! plus i get a trip out to california to play against some really badass ladies? i'm super excited! hopefully we can make it work. it's at the end of march, so time to clean up the skates and pull out the gold bouting shorts!
also, a lovely lady who was heavily involved in derby and the burlesque scene in prince george just moved here and joined the tarts - and she wants to start up a spring burlesque show. a bunch of us from the team have signed up to go to the meeting this coming weekend. i'm still trying to decide if it's something i for sure want to do, but i think it's really fascinating and would love to learn more and get involved with it in some way.
i have another thing i'm hoping for too that could be potentially amazing, but i won't divulge until it comes true. don't want to jinx it of course!
