About Me



I am thelancergirl… better known to some as Mel.. and others as Blair Block.  I started this blog to document and reflect on my new adventures in my new home, and to share with family, friends and the world…the randomness that I think about daily. I am a web designer by trade, but I also have a love for writing and card making. Along the way, I picked up the tuner bug  in 2006 with the purchase of my 2006 Ralliart, Betty. Betty and I have shared some great moments, reviving the Calgary Lancer scene, learning how to drive stick, and drag racing at Race City.  I also own a 1979 Ford Pinto, her name is Wilma, and she reminds me that driving should be fun!

Upon moving to British Columbia, I’ve found a new interest in playing in the kitchen (nobody makes fun of me here, or else they don’t eat!) I like to poke around online for recipes and new things to try and do, as well  as healthy foods that look and taste as yummy as their un-healthy counterparts!

My number one passion is the sport of Roller Derby… a perfect fusion of my passions of days gone by (short-track speed skating and pro-wrestling). Derby has helped me make friends in my new town, and focus my energy on making a few girls asses and arms purple… I currently skate as a PB’nJ (Pivot, Blocker and Jammer) for the Apple Smacks of the OKRD, and I hope that one day I’ll get to skate in the Roller Derby World Cup! I have spent the past 7 years playing derby, and it’s one of the best things to ever happen in my life, I look forward to even more!

I hope you join the adventure!

Thanks for reading!
