I have absolutely no idea what to wear - obviously I really want to wear what teenage me would have worn if she'd realised she was a girl and MCR were still touring.

But I feel like it'll be way too cold outside to be in short skirts, boobs out.

I'll be seeing them sober too because we're driving there and back on the same night. Which is a bit rubbish ( no chemical help curbing the anxiety )- but honestly I probably feel better driving there and back than having to negotiate getting from venue to hotel and then home the following day.

I'm going to see My Chemical Romance tomorrow night.

I am excited, and nervous.

This is my first gig in a long time, and it being; outdoors, a long way away, and a big band gives me some anxiety.
I was meant to see a few bands recently, but they've all fell through :(

Hopefully the event isnt *too* overwhelming.

I am really looking forward to seeing MCR live, a teenage dream right there.

I passed my roller derby minimum skills today!

I am now considered safe to scrim! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

My journey was pretty bad, btw.

The train just got later and later until they cancelled it 2 stops early and i had to catch a replacement service.

I arrived an hour later than intended, luckily i didnt miss the important, happens only once, event that I had.

Trans healthcare/medication 

The train im getting this morning is *already* 10 mins delayed and its not even 8am yet.

It is also a BR class 158 that I'm on for....3 hours.

Ugh, british railways.

Annoyingly, my deed poll isnt dated. So I had to use a combo of chat history with my partner, and Google maps Timeline to find out.

By deed-poll, Samathy is 4 years, 2 months and 7 days old.

( I had to go find my deed-poll signing date for *reasons*, even though I've been using my name full time since about 2011 )

Complaining about the NHS 

Made scrim tops for my first roller derby game on Sunday!

Electrical tape on some cotton tops.

I ordered some arm bands with my number on, but it doesnt look like they'll arrive in time. So sharpie on the arms it'll have to be!

Oh, I also need to get some toe stops. Because I can't find ( in my house ) the ones I was going to use, and these black ones are uh...end of life.

I finished my custom roller skates last night!
They're very yellow and very good.

They are a little tight around the balls of my feet, but I'm hoping the leather will stretch a bit.

Other than that, they're really good! Plate placement is nice.

I need to cut a *third* right aluminum plate, because I countersunk the holes from the wrong side. But that isnt suuuper important.




Samathy boosted

I'm always astounded how many great (and weird) talks we get at #emfcamp.

Looking forward to not seeing any of them because I'll be too busy running the event.


A day in modern software development is oft marked with an hour or so trying to figure out why a tool that worked yesterday isnt working today.

Imagine a carpenter having to spend 1/3 of their day repairing their hammer which suddenly broke overnight.

I might eventually re-cut the insole I did do because it is rather shorter in length than it needs to be.

On account of figuring out how best to get it to slide into the shoe *after* I'd been trimming material off. I reckon I could trim less off and still get it to slide in - resulting in slightly stronger shoe and an easier time fitting the skate plate.

But maybe I'll just see how I go and cut a new insole if the need arises.
