Can't Wait For Whip It!!!!


I just saw on TV (during Glee) that there's a sneak preview Saturday night of Whip It, which is probably one of my most highly anticipated movies. First of all, it's about Roller Derby, which I love. Our local derby league are the Kansas City Roller Warriors and they are some badass ladies.

Secondly, the movie stars Drew Barrymore, who I adore. It always amazes me that we are the same age, because it seems like she's been around forever (oh wait, she has). She's so awesome!!

Thirdly, this spectacular-looking movie is based on a YA novel originally titled Derby Girl, now renamed Whip It. The book is written by Shauna Cross and I'm reading it right now and can tell you that it is fantabulous.

So, I guess we all know what I'll be doing Saturday night.

  8. Some times I read your blog and wonder if we're the same person. We have very similar tastes in things. :) Also, we're the same age apparently. ;)
