Who Ya Gonna Call?

I think my blog looks somewhat better. I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to blog design. I just delete code, see what the blog looks like, put the code back, see what it looks like, etc. As far as I can tell, it looks normal on Internet Explorer and still a little weird on Firefox. If you have another browser, good luck with that.

Tomorrow night, I am going roller skating with Stefanie (and H and some other people). Roller skating with your blog friend: does it get much nerdier than that? I hope not. On Friday nights, the rink is open only to 25-year-olds and up, so it should be a good time. Hopefully, there will be a few couple skates! I am going to request the song that goes, "Doctor, doctor, give me the news! I've got a [beat] bad case of loving you!" Not because of Stefanie, but just because I always used to skate to that song at elementary school birthday parties. That and "Ghostbusters."

Yesterday, I linked to Stefanie's post about a pre-wedding kickball game, but I think a pre-wedding roller skating party would be so much better! Partly because although I would probably fall while roller skating, there would be fewer shouts of "No bunting!" If any engaged people are reading this and want me to plan a pre-wedding roller event for them, let me know.

I just remembered that when I was in high school, I attended a skating party. We thought we were so cool for being intentionally dorky or something. And we all paired up with random people for couple skates and then couple-skated overdramatically (complete with sweeping arm gestures). It was so much fun. Is it good or bad that I am exactly the same as I was when I was 16? And why do I appear to be obsessed with couple-skating?

Oh, no fair. I was totally just writing about our big roller-skating plans when I came back over here to copy your URL and link to you, and I see that you have already written about it! I cannot post my post until tomorrow (as it is a Friday Five and all), but just so you know, I shall be discussing roller-skating, too! I can't wait! (For the skating, I mean. Not for the post. The post, in all honesty, isn't that great. I'm just sayin.')

Also, I totally agree that a pre- (or post-, as was the case with the kickball) wedding skating event would be a fabulous and excellent idea. I will keep this in mind should I ever get married. (You know, if I don't have a hip replacement or something by then.)

I was going to write that your blog looked fine on Netscape, but when I clicked on "post a comment" it went really weird... oh well!

Roller skating party? Cool! The song that automatically brings me back to the rink is "Funkytown"!

Have fun and enjoy every couple skates you can!

I absolutely LOVE skating and told Aaron that instead of going to a bar, I wanted him to take me skating. Have fun!!

Formatting is still a little off, as seen in Firefox on a Mac.

I used to rollerskate to "Funkytown" by Lipps, Inc. I think that makes me older than you. Damn.

I've never been much of a skater. Well, I've never been able to roller skate AT ALL, to be honest. Hubby and I tried to take up ice skating while we were dating. I got to the point where I could occasionally move away from the edge of the rink.

When I skate I fall down.

Thank god there isn't a rink giving my boyfriend grand ideas of intentional dorkitude. Although couple skating could be fun.

I haven't been roller-skating in forever!!

PS, I think most of us are exactly the same as we were when we were sixteen. Better fashion, maybe.

Next up, Ladies Choice, followed by a "shoot the deck" competition. My Sharona!

ROLLER SKATING??? NO FAIR!! Aw, now I wanna go roller skating. That is so terribly awesome and dorky, i can't stand it. I wonder if i could even stand upright anymore... hmm. I wonder if there's even a rink open around here anymore.

Sounds like so much fun. Am now totally jealous. :)

Was I at this roller-skating event in high school? Cause it seems like something I'd remember but somehow I don't.

I can't listen to "Like a Prayer" and not think of good old Skateland.

guinness girl said...

Hee! That sounds like so much fun! Wish I could go. Wah. FYI, your blog looks pretty normal in Firefox to me! (well. as normal as YOUR blog could look. har har.) Just teasing, you know. xoxoxo

I only had one birthday party when I was a kid. I was 8 and I chose eight wheels skating rink.

Best. party. ever.

Stefanie, you beat me on the follow-up post, so we are even.

Spaw, I don't think they played Funkytown, although that would have been nice.

Nat, skating was really fun! Next, we are going to go ice skating.

Steve, yeah, I am still having blog issues. It is a pain.

3cars, I'm glad you tried!

Christine, some of us were going quite slow. Falling is half the fun!

L sass, thanks for the reassurance about being the same as I was when I was 16. I do think I have better fashion sense, thank goodness.

Preppy, word.

Claire, it was really fun.

Double G, Like a Prayer is another good one.

GG, thanks, I think.

Jenny, good party choice! I never had a roller skating party, but I attended my fair share, and they were always fun.
