I'm training with Maine Roller Derby. It's also hard work. But I can do things on roller skates I never dreamed possible.

Food: I work at an organic farm during harvest season. I eat anything and everything; Indian, Japanese, Korean, Mexican, American, whatever. If it's fresh and spicy I will probably love it. But I guess Mexican would have to win, since I had to live without cilantro for three months and it was pretty hard. Also I tried to live without cheese for nine months and I dreamed about it ALL THE TIME.
