Re: Infinity's

A couple weeks ago I went and watched my friend have her eyebrow pierced.  I have no interest in having any piercings myself but it was kinda neat to watch.  Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

I want to get a tattoo though.
I'm not really sure why lots of needles jabbing me repeatedly doesn't seem as bad as one just going through once... *shrug*

Re: Infinity's

i love my tattoo and all kinds of want another one.  it took about 12 years to get the first one done (as in, deciding on what to get and where to put it).  i know what i want for the second one, and that i want it small, but i don't know where to put it... i hope it doesn't take me another 12 years lol.


Walter, put the cow away, would you?!

Have a gander at the jewelry I've been making...

Re: Infinity's

If I'd ever have a tattoo, it'd probably be something like that picture of Kulgan hanging around somewhere. A dragon reading a book, or some such. It'd have to be small though. But I doubt my fear of needles will ever permit me. *grins*

Re: Infinity's

I'm lucky I have no fear of needles - don't much like pain but I should be able to survive this - I've done it before...

still bloody hot here.  They are forecasting 36 for the end of the week -- yikes!!

Re: Infinity's

Yikes indeed! *wonders about the weather here* I usually live by the day (as the weather isn't all that predictable here). And just hope I don't miss an important part of the daily forecast in the morning. (Like to bring a rain coat.)

Re: Infinity's

It's a touch cooler here today, thankfully. Is it autumn, yet?


I went to the tattoo place yesterday. The guy that does the work doesn't live in town, but he should be coming into town for a few weeks soon. Then I'll go and find all out.

Re: Infinity's

I'm excited about my possible tattoo. Terrified for my poor kitty. Ambivalent about my ipod purchase. Worried about forest fires. Sad for my poor kitty. And I've lost the word for how I feel about my story. Typical.

Re: Infinity's

What's wrong with the kitty Jen?

I didn't make it to the tattoo place - I just wanted to find out how long they need to draw my design.  we're taxiing kids to and from zoo camp several shifts a day and I left myself too short.  I will plan better tomorrow...

Re: Infinity's

Kitty has something wrong with his eye. Might be an infection, a virus or cancer. He's only five. :(

I keep losing cats. This is my third since smarch started. Loves him so VERY very much.

Re: Infinity's

and now I'm going out into the lovely, lovely rain and head to work. *yawn*
and at about 3, I'll be at home, and my 4-day-weekend/mini-holiday/party-crazyness begins.

Re: Infinity's

It's still raining. With the heat it's become horribly humid. Everything feels wet. I feel like I forgot to dry off after my shower. Ugh.

Re: Infinity's

We've only had bits of rain - just enough to make it very humid.  Calgary is NEVER humid - but we have been this summer.

The tattoo I want is too involved for them to do for me this weekend...  *cries*  My sister in law is okay with waiting for me so that's nice of her.  Still *sniffles*  - best to have it done right though I suppose.
