Appologies for the months of entry-free, but really there wasn’t anything hugely interesting going on. At least… not enough to keep my interest long enough for a blog entry. Thought of using this space for a webcomic have come to mind and that may happen in the future. Not a change over. Just additional content. Anyway…

The other day I got it in my head that I was going to buy some (quad-style, as I have learned) roller skates. My roommate is a skater in the sense that he has a few specially designed pieces of wood with wheels attached to them. He occasionally breaks said pieces of wood and himself in the process. Luckily no bones while he’s been living here, but there have been some nasty scrapes and a dislocated shoulder.

Me, I know very well that I am not very good at staying on a skateboard, but it does look like something rather exciting and I remembered having a pair of skates as a little girl. I also have a larger-than-desired rear end that could stand to drop down a couple notches to something less… uh… boyant? Yeah, that.

Stage one was to find a pair. This is not so easy as it used to be back in the eighties, so I had to do a search online before heading out. Inline skates(or Rollerblades) are a little easier to find but still not as easy as they used to be back in the nineties, but I wasn’t looking for Summertime ice skates. I wanted what I was more familiar with.

I found a location not far from work that theoretically sold the classic quad-style and headed there this evening after opting to not wait an hour or so for a movie. Play it Again Sports which is a shop for new and used sporting goods, had a few in stock and I bought myself a pair of men’s size 8 black roller skates. They had a total of something like 7 pairs of these things. Tiny stock.

Stage two was to put these things on and go for a spin. Ok. Not hard, right? First thing I did upon getting both on was to take several minutes descending the stairs from my 2nd-floor apartment, clinging to the hand rails; hoping that these occasionally used painted metal bars were more secure than they appeared. Yes, they are indeed. Clinging to everything I could on the way, I made it out to the sidewalk.

Some people were out walking their tiny dogs when I made my attempt to get somewhere on these wheels strapped to my feet. Now I had to figure out how to use these things without falling on my face. It had been at least a decade and a half since I used a pair of these. I used to go to rollerrinks every Summer. I can recall now, after having made my attempt on these new foot-vehicles, that I spent a lot of time on the edge, either hanging on the wall or very close to the thing.

I decided my first go would just be around the block. I wouldn’t cross the street. I’d stay on this small loop. Using these things is not immediately easy. I have to go back and nearly start from the beginning. First, there’s the motion. Then there’s the balance. Eventually, near the end of my short trek, I got down the full body motion where swinging your arms becomes incredibly important. It was quite a bit scary trying to not fall down and searching for my new center of gravity.

So, I’ve found my workout. Now, I did find that there is a rollerrink down on Venice Blvd and I could start going there as well as attempting to get it down on my own street. Eventually, I’d say my goal is to be able to head down Santa Monica and back. For now, the block. The block is tiring enough. Hell, I’m sore and I was indeed sweating.

Updates to follow on a weekly basis…

Damn. I got a splinter in my arm from running into that bush.
