Roller madness!

I went back to California for a conference at UCLA. I didn't take any pictures as I imagine it would be extremely boring for everyone, except maybe the 200 or so people there. I also spent time in Santa Barbara, where a group of us went to a roller derby bout.

It was very hot out, so I cooled down the lady-like way, with a parasol and some cold beer.

The home team, Mission City Brawlin' Betties stomped (rolled?) the visitors from Ventura.

The crowd watches with intense anticipation.

I make funny faces while Dan smiles politely.
Other things I did: put a new cassette and hot pink grips on my bike, rode my bike, fell off my bike (just a little), did work for my job, worked on another paper I am writing with a Bren professor, saw Drake (free and terrible), attempted to make pizza dough with moth-infested flour, successfully made pizza dough with non-moth-infested flour, bought two swimsuits, applied for full-time jobs, and napped.
