Team arrives with lots of clever ‘vanity’ numbers.

'Please line up for kit check in number order, thank you!'.

1-14. All I’m sayin’….

That spine tingling moment when the bench coach (lets call him Mr Douche) that has been riding and berating the ref crew all game long decides to turn his attentions to one of the score trackers by snatching up the paperwork to check for some imagined error before the exceedingly experienced HNSO covers the distance between them in eight universe-trembling strides to hiss sweetly: ‘I suggest, MISTER Douche, that you cease your interference with the official game paperwork and return to your bench area immediately’. Sorry. SORRY. sorry…….

That. 

Do NOT fuck with NSOs. You will not survive.

Junkies, your reminder that everyone—even high-level players like Atomatrix—make dumb mistakes. Like using the infield to jump the apex. Whoops.

I can’t stop watching the Jam ref’s reaction to this.

Anonymous said: Do you think it's okay for people to eat nonvegan occasionally when they're still transitioning? Instead of just stopping cold turkey?

Yeah but I honestly think cold turkey is the best way to do it 

Years ago, I ‘tapered off’ my non-vegan eating, eliminating one thing at a time, until I no longer had a craving for it. Stopping cold turkey is what makes a lot of people, that I’ve known personally, go back to omnivore diets. Basically they like (fill in the blank) too much, and health or ethical concerns isn’t enough for them. 

Mmmmmmmmmm ……. cold turkey.

On Sunday 14th April 2013, rather than shed my skates for the umpteeneth time after pre-scrim practice and NSO, one of the then-ref crew suggested I stayed on skates and joined in with them.

I’d started derby back in September 2012 and everyone presumed I’d want to skate - nobody *asked* me if I wanted to ref - so I sort of went along with it.  I think I believed that’s what I wanted, too.  I just wanted to get skating, get learning all I could, and let everything else follow.  However, upon actually being asked to metaphorically don stripes?  I realised I had wanted to secretly do it for ages.

LOVE this!! :D
