11/15/08 06:21 pm - It's so hot, but next weekend I might see snow...

because I'll be in Boston. It's ridiculous here - the Santa Ana winds are blowing a trail of destuction through California; with high temperatures, no humidity and the contrasting night coldness making more winds. Today I did a massive cull of my clothes, throwing out everything that makes me feel frumpy, doesn't fit, or is broken and won't get fixed. So  now it's time to get dressed up for an evening out in my new, limited selection...

 PS, I wouldn't let Wil.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas sit next to me at the cinema because we thought our friend mike was coming. Also, I had no idea it was him until everyone told me so.

 Roller Derby is ace. Crazy alternative girls in fishnets on skates beating the crap out of each other with nicknames like 'Minnie Jugs' 'Mikispeedia' and 'Jacq Pot'. They have fear-leaders and during the interval, mini-roller derby girls (ages 8 - 17) came out and proceeded to do a slightly less violent version. Food on a stick was available. I had cheese on a stick. Also crazy cool merchandising, and cookies, and the skating ramp is a work of art. Everything is a bit pink. The commentators are really funny. The rules are not too hard to learn and everyone who was there LOVED ROLLER DERBY. I'm hooked.

This weekend also featured pumpkin muffin baking, clambering up Vasquez Rocks, watching 'The Secret Life of Bees' and heated political debate. 

I know I have PMS now though because I just had a big fight about whether I had the correct amount of water in a pan to make the rice. I KNOW HOW MUCH WATER I NEED! 

This morning there was a spider in my handbag, so even the insects are getting in a Halloween mood.
