Some bad news

I haven't gotten a chance to put together another solo session of ATZ to write-up in this blog yet, hopefully when I'm done with the holidays.

But in some bad news, the real life Irene is, like the ATZ Irene, a roller derby enthusiast.  This year she got drafted to a major WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association) team and would begin practicing for the 2013 season in just a few weeks.  A couple of days ago, Irene fell while skating at a kiddie rink (or more accurately, a small child bumped into her, causing her to fall) and broke her wrist.  It will likely be in a cast for several weeks, but there's a chance that she won't be allowed to skate for several months, which would pretty much prevent her from participating in the 2013 season.

So we are all kind of bummed out.  I picked up a new "rollergirl" mini to paint in her new team's colors, but maybe I need to pick out a different outfit instead!


  1. No worries buddy. Here's to Irene having a speedy recovery then!

    Happy New Year to you and your family!

  2. Bummer...hopes she gets better soon. It could have been worst, I am sure, like an ankle preventing her from walking.


  3. How awful for her! Wish her all the best and a speedy recovery.

  4. Yikes that sucks! Good vibrations and well wishes for Irene and I hope she gets better soon.

    A Happy New Year and all the best to you, Irene and the family Zombie!
