I still call play-by-play announcing for roller derby (2014 marks my seventh season/year announcing for derby). A friend turned me on to the sport (and yes, it *is* a sport) around 2006, and I've been hooked ever since, good and bad. These days, however, I'm regularly calling for "only" one league now, and I dig it. I get to travel with them throughout the state, and sometimes out of state, as well. The ladies in the women's league are good people, and I consider several of the skaters to be among my best friends in my life right now. I won't make you travel with me to bouts, but I will warn you in advance, you had best be comfortable with me being close to these women. (Psst. If it helps you, pretty much the entire league is either in happily-committed relationships, lesbian, or young enough to be my daughter, which even I admit is kinda creepy. ;) )
When I'm not doing that, I have a small-but-loyal group of friends who does stuff all around Orlando, Tampa, and even Polk County. You can usually find me Tuesday nights at the local bar with some friends, competing in their trivia contest. If our team wins, we get a $50 gift card, which covers the cost of my dinner (barring a $5 tip for my server, who always does an outstanding job of service). We've been known to place in the top three teams on a pretty consistent basis, and even gone on a few outright winning streaks. I'm still totally into video games - in addition to my PC, I currently own a PS2, a PS3, a Wii, a Nintendo 64, and even a Sega Dreamcast and a Sega Genesis. While cleaning up around my place, I busted out the old Genesis and Nintendo 64 for some fun times for games I haven't played in years. (I've still never owned an Xbox or an Xbox360. Go figure.) I love the theme parks like Disney and Universal. I stopped going a few years back because I got so busy with derby, and I never had anyone to go with. Several months ago, I was gifted with a seasonal pass for Disney. I'm always looking for someone for company for trips to Disney. Maybe that can be you, sometime soon. :)
Movies - If you're pointing a gun at my head and making me get this down to five movies, I'd probably go with: "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" (which, if you get really geeky about it, is a pretty cool story about how people react in the face of death/doom/losing and just plain ol' getting older), "Casino," "The Matrix," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," and "The Blues Brothers." Bear in mind, however, as far as movies I've really loved over the years, this is a criminally-short list. ;)
Music - Yes, I know this section's the equivalent of "Ben Hur" or "Heaven's Gate." I was a college music student, and still consider myself a musician. It still means a lot to me; what can I say? Among the bands in my CD collection and on iTunes are the Rolling Stones, Tesla, Van Halen (both Dave and Sammy eras), Queensryche (from "Operation: Mindcrime" to "Promised Land"), Queen, AC/DC, Motorhead, Metallica (from "Kill 'Em All" to "Garage Inc.," though realistically, they really went downhill after the Black Album), Megadeth, Killswitch Engage, the Black Crowes, Sting, the Police, Sisters of Mercy, Peter Murphy, Asia, Bill Cosby, Bill Hicks, Richard Jeni, Dana Gould, Jeff Wayne, the Cult, Corrosion of Conformity, Danzig, D.A.D. (formerly known as Disneyland After Dark), Duran Duran, Foo Fighters, Billy Joel, Bruce Hornsby, Bruce Springsteen ("Tunnel of Love" is hugely underrated), Aerosmith, John Cougar Mellencamp, Kid Rock, Mutha's Day Out, a few albums and cuts from Prince, Disturbed, the Donnas, Faith No More, Garbage, Huey Lewis and the News, Iron Maiden, KISS, Lacuna Coil, No Doubt, Motorhead, Rush, Seal, and countless others. How's that for a start?
Books - I find myself reading a lot of non-fiction these days, for whatever reason. Among that which I've read (and liked) includes "Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live" by Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller, "Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga" by Ian Christe, and "Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling" by Bret Hart. As far as fiction, I love most of Scott Turow's stuff (especially "Presumed Innocent," "Pleading Guilty," and "Reversible Errors"), Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series (though "Mostly Harmless" fell flat for me), and Dave Barry wrote two fiction novels, "Big Trouble" and "Tricky Business," that were funny as hell.
1) Definitely my car - for all the traveling I do around the south half of Florida. :)
2) Good books or magazines to read.
3) My watch or my cellphone to help me keep track of the time.
4) Internet access (duh!)
5) A comfortable bed or couch on which to sleep
6) A CD player or iPod or something similar on which to listen to music
+ You want someone with a brain who still wants to have fun.
+ You enjoy (or at least don't mind) getting in the car for a road trip every now and then.
+ You're not the paranoid, jealous type.
+ You like all sorts of music and video games.
+ You're down for company for a trip to Disney - especially if it means hitting as many roller coasters/thrill rides as possible.
