Drama at the NoShow house

Sheesh, keep NoShow in your thoughts this week. Do what you have to do. Send some positive energy. Pass along some uplifting thoughts. Pray for us. Make a virgin sacrifice for us if you have to.

Panzy (aka Kelsey) was diagnosed with frontal lobe epilepsy on Tuesday. She spent a night at Kosair a few weeks ago after suffering a little jerk or tic. She is on the same medication as my dad. She'll be fine but just something I wish she didn't have to worry about. (aka Will) is recovering after an emergency appendectomy last night. His appendix hadn't burst but it was ready to pop. He is asleep right now recovering. I don't think I've ever seen him in this much pain (even that one time after he fell 15 feet out of the tree and he asked me if he was dead).

Mama NoShow has been taking it like a champ but it is taking a toll on her. She only wants the best for her chil'ren and hates seeing them hospitalized.

As for skating, I'm ready for warm weather and want to start putting the "Show" into NoShow. C'mon global warming and do your thing already!

Ribs and Ribbing...

I took quite the slam last week after only maybe a 30 minute session. I joined Junior with a rib injury, though mine was not as severe, as I did not hear or feel any cracks or pops. But certainly a thumb of the 'crete gods smushed me into the flat with ah-thor-eh-tay! Only once before have I gotten up so slowly and in so much pain. And that was with my ankle, and I was out for 8 weeks. I so wanted to shake it off and take another run before I left, but there was just no way. The longer I stayed, the more I wanted to nut-up through the pain, and the more I realized if I did, I was going to get REALLY hurt. But hey, I have witnesses, the 50-50 before the smiting was textbook perfect!

So, with very lil' skating (or documentation) going on by the Cretins lately, I shall continue to "borrow" content from elsewhere. Found this on the OldManArmy forums...

People suck. AND they're stupid. No, I mean really fkn stupid. If you can't handle being flabbergasted, and seriously annoyed, don't watch.

"... you are trespassed..."

I mean, come on. You sound like an idiot. It's hard to take you seriously lady when you change the story AND sound like a 12 year old who just learned a new word. I'd like to know if this ever made it to the city council of Milton, but I'm sure I never will.

Because Old's Cool!

(see what I did there? Old School... oh, nevermind...)

Skate Content! Woo hoo! Here's a lil' more for the Cretins who missed out on the 80's and early 90's of skating. The glorious air that comes from the LAUNCH RAMP! I love how most of these pros even are doing the "early grab." I mightamaybecoulda hung with this contest. Well, maybe 15 years ago that is. Enjoy.

-Another angle of Rad!

Just in case...

Well, to continue the political thread in the blog, for the helluvit(and since I haven't been skating and no one else is posting content)... this is for those of you who think now the USA will go to hell in a handbasket (you're all going to hell anyway, so it might as well be in a handbasket-though I'm goin' in a limo)...

You might want to pick up one of these... you know, just in case.
