Meet Bone Jr.

This is Bone Jr. (and me, standing all sweaty and streaky and pasty next to her) after our first public scrimmage with the Red Rockettes:

She is my new favorite. Why? BECAUSE I SAID SO! But really, she's on the Red Rockettes with me, and I am so glad she is. I love her more and more every week. Especially this week when she showed up with a surprise for me (more on that later).

First of all, she can totally hit me all over the track and leave me giggling, thinking to myself, "I just got boned." Her number is 36DD, and she loves unicorns as much as I do (it's destiny, I know). This one time she hauled me to Piper Down after practice, bought me delicious food, and made me laugh until I was crying.

Speaking of laughing and crying, she writes an incredible blog that has frequently made me laugh and cry (mostly from laughter). This post in particular did both.

She made me Disco Pony arm bands (oh, by the way, Dread Riding Hood is no longer; I'm Disco Pony now!) which are one of my most prized possessions. I have worn them to nearly every practice and you bet your boogety that I wear them disco skating on a regular basis.

This is not my arm. I stole this pic from Bone's FB page, bc I didn't have any good pics of them on me yet.
The best part (well, after the sparkles) is that she sewed felt into the inside of the seam so it wouldn't scratch me. She's also been crocheting arm bands for other girls on the league. How is that not the best thing you've ever heard?

As if the armbands weren't enough, she nearly (and by nearly, I mean just when she wasn't looking) brought me to tears at our last practice by showing up, IN AN ARM SLING, with one of the sweetest (meaning both 'aw, she's a totally sweetheart,' and 'this stuff is totally sweet') gifts I've ever received.

Do you like the way the unicorns turn into giant smears as they get stretched over my not exactly small calves?
This is my excited face, I swear!
And why was she giving me gifts? Just because (and not to buy my gay love, apparently). That's how awesome she is.

There are a lot of amazing girls on the Red Rockettes (every single one of them!). I love skating with each and every one , and I am so glad I found the Red Rockettes. We're like no other league out there. We have a place for everyone (which includes, thankfully, a place for me), and we do crazy stuff like hula hoop at practice and tape crazy shite to our helmets in celebration of the royal wedding (and you all know how I feel about the royal wedding).

That being said, thanks so much for the incredible gifts, Bone, and get better soon so I can knock you down on the track!

Nice prezzies! (I stole that from Daisy just like I stole her name!) Have fun while I'm gone and eat lots of snow cones, just not today cuz they're closed. :(

Wow, thanks for the awesome shout-out! I feel like a celebrity now that I've made it on your blog :) And get ready to be boned all over the track tonight. In a totally non-gay way, of course.
