    I reaaaally like Strangling Modifier. It's Englishy/edit-y and it sounds like you're strangling AND modifying someone's person, to their detriment.

    I really like Mary Poppinshins, too.

    Hee, I couldn't pick just one. And there were others I liked in the poll, too. I picked the ones I thought fit, and also are easily "get-able."

    So I ended up going to a Roller Derby game as a promotional gig for where I work. I sat in for a bit. One of the team's names was "Sockit Wenches". Kinda clever.

    Does your place of business sponsor a team? If so, bless you/them.

    My team has its first interleague bout this Sunday. (They've had two bouts where they split into teams and skated against each other, but this time a team from SC is coming up.) One of the other "fresh meat" girls is a tattoo artist and is making us all T-shirts that say "GSORD Fresh Meat 2011" on the front with a sweet-ass pic of a T-bone steak that she designed. And then we're going to stencil our derby names on the back. So I want to have one by then. Hence the poll! I voted for all the options because I don't want to affect the outcome and also because I like them all, which is why I'm undecided. There are a handful of them that I LOVE (I mean seriously, Pat Minotaur, that is BRILL) but don't seem to quite fit me for whatever reason. So I appreciate the input.

    To make this vaguely on-topic for the subforum it's in, I'm about a month into training and it's the hardest physical thing I've ever done with the possible exception of havin' babies. And that only took less than a day- this is harder in some ways, because it's sustained effort over weeks and months. But it's kind of addictive, also. I hurt all the time, but it kind of feels good in a way. That sounds crazy now that I've typed it out.

    Oddly, I was thinking of Manfred Mann's cover of "Blinded by the Light" this morning (singing it in the shower actually) and thought of "Butt Mama."

    It would even give you your own theme song sound clip: "Butt Mama -- That's where the fun is!"
