Luckily this week has started to get moar betterer than it was from my previous post. Thanks to a little introspection, talking with a couple of coworkers, and some advisory kickassery from former LA Derby Doll Kid Vicious, I think I've found some temporary coping mechanisms to get my brain a-thinkin' in a more positive direction.
A little non-brain-using work is also helpful.
Below is the result of a quick night's work of making Notorious, the spray I use on my pads to help prevent them from stinking to high heaven and back several times over. This has been a very minor league side project of mine...I first started making this stuff for post-jogging relaxation on me feets over seven years ago. At some point I started spraying it on my pads after skating. It's a well-known fact that the only athlete that smells worse than a roller derby skater is a hockey player, hence the need for such a spray on one's pads.
From there, it's become almost a heroin-esque product within the LA Derby Dolls. I sell bottles of the stuff. When buyers need a refill, I have them give me the bottle to reuse, to help minimize waste. HOW CONSCIENTIOUS OF ME.
But...it sells. Which is good.
Not what I intended on being known for or being in demand for...but I gotta take what I can get, I guess.
Anyway, here is photographic record of me making a decent-sized batch of Notorious to sell at Rollercon this weekend:
33 bottles of Notorious is now ready to be sprung into the wider derby community. We'll how it sells!
