Today was my 33⅓ birthday. I didn’t get a chance to listen to any vinyl, but I did get my Kraken! It had been over ten years since my last tattoo, and it was at the hands of the very same man. I am so glad I went back to him. Sure, there was a little anxiety in the days leading up to the appointment, because the artwork hadn’t been totally finalized (and hey, this is permanent and all) but I couldn’t be happier with the results. And catching up with Nic was hella fun too. I am exhausted but happy. Now I just need to figure out a way to sleep tonight. Must take care not to put pressure on my sore shoulder and arm…so my usual bellyflop position is out. Naturally I’ll be posting more photos, after the slimy bandages come off and it’s all cleaned up.
Bonus: Very short stories, written by some of my very favorite people.
Plus: Yay, the Vegan Lunch Box cookbook is out now!
And: Mimi Smartypants makes me laugh regularly. Especially when she’s high on Dayquil.
