SMS and I have decided to join the roller derby team! We're in trial status now as we learn to skate and get familiar with the organization but we're already having a really fun time. We went to practice on Friday and we're slowly getting better. The team has loaner gear that we borrow although SMS has already ordered beginner kits for us from online. I'm looking forward to that since borrowing pads used by multiple sweaty people is almost as gross as using community wetsuits that everyone's peed in. Oh come on, don't pretend you don't pee in your wetsuit!
On Saturday, we were pretty mellow and hung around Yokosuka. In the evening, we went for a run along the seawall before meeting two of our friends at the yakinikuya that is a short walk from our house. Yakiniku is a Japanese cuisine where slightly-larger-than-bite-sized pieces of meat and veggies are grilled at the table. We ordered two meat and vegetable sets to cook on the little center table charcoal grill. It was so tasty! We also brainstormed for our team name (mildly successful) and costumes (more successful) for our Amazing Race team. Yes, Yokosuka is having an Amazing Race and we're super excited. We headed over to Don Quixote and bought team costumes. While there were several more "interesting" costume available (metallic unitards, anyone?), we went with monster costumes that have a hat/arm paws/leg warmers. Our name? Monster Mash. Eh, I know. It works but isn't super awesome. But if we waited for super-awesome then we wouldn't have gotten a spot in the Amazing Race!
