Of christmas, gifts,photos and tattoos
First things first .. Merry christmas, happeee hols and season's greetings to all ..I have always loved christmas time.. with shiny stars, twiinkling lights, carols and mainly plum cakes(!!)..When i was in college ,a bunch of us used to go to church to attend the mid night mass.. just for the fun of it and feel the festive spirit..
Hubby and i had this weird conversation abt tattoos today .. i wanted one and he obviously thought that i was mad to get one..
Me(while watching LA Ink on TV) : I am getting myself a tattoo..
G: What ??? *&^*!!
Me: Yup, u heard me right. I am getting a pheonix tattoo..
G : R u out of u r mind??.. You should quit watching Discovery travel and living .. tattoos are for hippies..
Me: whine.. Whine .. please !!
G : Its not safe ..I saw something about metal posioning in the tattoo dye on tv..
Me: More Whine.. Whine.. of course it's safe .. So many people get them done ..
G: It hurts ..It's not like some ink drawing which u can wash off with water if u dont like it the next morning .. the damn thing is permanent !
Me: It's ok .. i dont mind the pain .. and i'll get a small tattoo .. that ways if i dont like it .. it will still be ok !!
Then he read tons of googled material on tattoos .. and obviously he had to check out Irezumi's(the tattoo parlour)website to see if they were an ok place! huh,men !!! Finally of course, he agreed. The clincher being that my sister in law showed us her cute tattoos and did a bit of PR work for me .. I am getting a tattoo ASAP !!! hee hee
I spent an hour or so trying to decide what to buy for 6,3 and 8 year old kids .. The shop assistants give u such innane and stupid suggestions that you feel like shooting u r self (and them also !!) .. The assistant actually recommended a barbie doll for a 8 year old..later i got to know that 8 year olds these days didnt play with dolls .. not barbies !! thank goodness i didn't heed her advice and got a book instead ..That ways it's easier with male kids.. u just cant go wrong with shiny red cars .. come to think of it ..you cant go wrong with that for men of any age..;-)
Inagurated the new camera G Got for me today.. Went to the beach and was snapping away to glory .. there was this bunch of professional photographers who were grinning at me and my poor lil non-SLR camera !! .. All i can say is .. snobs, give way !!!
Gosh !! i am so excited about the tattoo !!
