Well, Tuesday I headed down to my nearest tattoo parlour and got another couple of holes in my head. Because you can’t have too many right? I also bought these earrings (the top three) on-line and they were going to use them for the new piercings, but because they are kind of hexagonal, they couldn’t. Grrr. But she put in the others and used green beads on the new ones to kind of match. Of course the bead has fallen off the one in my lobe as you can see and I have no clue when it went missing. Grrr. I’m not very happy with the earrings despite the small fortune I paid for them. Was asked today if it’s an addiction and if I’m getting more. I said no, but I said that after the first one. Not sure.
Also, the first night the bead came off the bottom one and I had to go back the next day and get it replaced. Sigh. They don’t seem to hurt as much as the upper ones. Maybe because there is less cartilage? No clue. Anyway, there you have it.
While I was there I also made an appointment for a tattoo consult next Friday. The 13th. Ooooohh.
I have some money coming in back-pay thanks to us FINALLY signing out contract on Wed. It is FINAL!!!! Now they can give us all our raises and back-pay, however they have 90 days to do so, therefore I’m not expecting a check too soon.
Nicolas was the only one who remembered to bring his purple pen. Seeing his signature in purple ink was cool.
That’s really about it. My kidlet has finished her first three exams, she has one more on the 14th in the morning and then she’ll be home that night. Looking forward to that.
I’ve done some of my shopping on-line. Well, most of it probably. I need some smaller things and I need to send off a few Secret Santa gifts, but hopefully this weekend.
That’s about it. Nothing very exciting happening. It was super warm and wet yesterday so we lost some snow, but it will definitely be a white Christmas as the temps are dropping again.
Oh I tried a new cooler type thing this week. It seemed Christmasy. The biggest problem is it’s carbonated. It should have been just mulled cider. I warmed it and it tasted okay, but I’m wondering if I let it go flat if it would taste even better. I shall try it.
I’ll try to be good, although after consulting with my daughter I have an idea for a short story that has a submission date of Dec. 31. HAHAHAHA. Maybe. It’s nice to be able to bounce ideas off her.
Me: Should I write a short story about a pool boy?
Her: Pool boys don’t exist. You know who fixes Siobhan’s pool? A fat old man.
Me: Stop shattering my dreams!
Her: Pita Pit, everyone who works there is cute.
Me: He helps the new guy learn to stuff a pita? *eyebrow waggle*
So she gave me their names and descriptions (pisses me off I saw the perfect inspiration pic for one guy on Tumblr and did NOT reblog it, now can’t find it, arrgghh), and now I have to write it. Leaving out her part about taking acid and a pita comes to life and he’s arrested having sex with it. Yeah. Someone reads too much Chuck Palahniuk.
Have a great weekend everyone.
P.S. My French is going well, I really like my teacher BUT, too many people in my class lapse into English to say something. It should be an English-free zone for 2 hours. We all have the capacity to use advanced French, do it!
