I don’t know what you’re doing tonight, but I know what I (and a few more of the Ottawa Blogging Chix) am doing!

I’m going to be strapping on some roller skates–“quads”, by the people in the know–for the very first time at a roller disco supporting the Ottawa Roller Derby. I’m really excited–especially as I found a “pair” of skates for myself today. Actually, using the word “pair” is being rather kind as they’re two different brands of skate in the same size for opposite feet–but, despite not looking precisely the same, they fit and they work and that’s all the matters in the end! After all, it would be pretty foolish to complain about working skates when they only cost $6.

Heck, for $6 I’m amazed they were both the same size!

If you’re interested, details can be found via Facebook (Roller Disco). The official website for the Ottawa Roller Derby is on MySpace:

ETA: Boo. I’m totally bummed! The city cut the power to the arena, but didn’t bother letting anyone know. They won’t let us use the parking lot instead because we don’t have a permit. I was really looking forward to this! šŸ˜¦
