the haps

the league put it to a vote, and our new home has been christened The Doll Factory.

(i voted for Temple of the Dolls, but oh well. i can live with The Doll Factory. i keep envisioning a warholesque motif where the walls are lined with aluminum foil. i wonder if that will fly with the fire marshal?).

there is other stuff i'd like to write about, but i've been so consumed with promoting our upcoming bout, that i haven't had the time. speaking of said bout, you guys (whoever you are) should come. my team isn't skating, but it might be a good game anyway. it's our inaugural bout in the doll factory, so you know everyone is gonna skate their hearts out. me, i'll be the bespectacled chick handing out press kits, making feeble attempts at schmoozing with media types.
