tattoo darling

A little before christmas, Laura mentioned a book that she had found called 'Tattoo Darling - the art of Angelique Houtkamp".

I dropped mega hints to my secret santa that if I got that book I would be pretty dang happy.

Being a big fan of the old school tattoo's, I am in heaven looking at Angelique's amazing artwork.

So much so that I went and got one of her tattoos, an anchor with PRD thru the banner.

Dylan and I are also getting matching tattoos, with both of us wanting to stick to an old-school pin up girl, with a few slight changes. It's an Angelique design of course...

Cross my heart

I have been told that I really need to update this thang, and since it has been a couple of months and a LOT of stuff has happened since we last met, I will indulge in your requests.

And quite frankly, I am actually in a writing mood, which has not happened for a long time.

I was driving along to visit the 'lucky' 08 yitsers and had this massive feeling that everything was finally aok.

I think Christians often have this idea that its ok to lie and pretend that everything is honky-dory when, in actual fact, everything is kinda crapola. It is, as I call it, the 'Onward Christian Solider' mentality.

I was talking to someone I had never met on the phone last week, and the first thing out of my mouth was 'how are you?'

He replied that that was kind of a odd question to really answer, as people usually have a fairly blase answer, and the person who asked normally is just being polite in asking in the first place.
The conversation then went off on a totally different tangent.
Moving back to the 'Onward Christian Solider' idea:
I have to find out if there are any mental health issues (specifically depression) in my family .
Now I am dead sure that there is, but if I even thought about asking my grandparents, they would be dead sure that there weren't and aren't any such issues in the family.
I think depression is often such a taboo subject in the 'we are all sweet and nothing is ever wrong' world of Christianity and I am really not sure why.
I am aware that this post is most likely not making any sense to ya'll (that is if you have stuck around) but this is an issue that makes perfectly no sense to me.
So lets just leave it there.

I went out for dinner with my mentor 'K' tonight and felt like 'Amelie' when I tapped the top of the best dessert ever, the Crème Brule.

And then when I got home I had to kill a cockroach. With my *foot.

Such an anticlimax to my not very Amelie like night.

*Sure I had my shoes on...but that defeats the purpose of this sorry attemp of a post

*Bridesmaid dresses are almost complete - no thanks to me. 12ish hours of material, pins and a sewing machein.

*Less then a month till the wedding of bec and geoff

*I am over christmas - more to the point, the consumeristic side of the festive season.

*I brought sombrero's today for the five of us going to pyramid rock. And no, Bec, I will NOT get burnt.

*Mental note - do not get burnt

*There are many sweet sweet gigs in the next couple of months that i wish to get my sweaty hands on -
Kate nash
Minus the Bear
Something for Kate
Sufjan Stevens

*I am sooo hanging to see mewithoutYou at Soundwave this coming Feb. I was actually speachless when I was told they were touring

*Dooce is my new love

*As is I used to dream of living in a corridor

*I will be moving out in about a months time, all going well, with Laura. more then 5 minutes away from the parental unit.

*I had a job interview yesterday. If successful, its goodbye piercings

Everything all of the time

I have tended to neglect sing soul sing this last semester. Often I only use it as a place to vent, or to write pure crap. It was something that I was once (what now feels like years ago) inspired to write in everyday. Fuck I wish it was that easy.

Things that i would have gladly written about - music movies and the such - no longer 'do' anything for me.

A lot of the things I have been passionate about this year have all be packed tightly away and sucked into a big black mass of nothingness.

Its been hard for me to distinguish if something does make me happy, or if its just an inbuilt reaction.

I hate nothingness and meaninglessness almost more then i hate being numb.

"In darkness a light shines
On me.
In darkness a light shines
On you.
Oh what'd I say?!
Oh, but sister in our darkness a light shines!
(Oh what'd I say?!)
And all I ever want to say for the rest of my life,
(Oh What'd I say!)
Is how the light is GOD!
(Our Lord is come!)
And through I've been mistaken on this or that point,
That light is God."
