Monday Musings

The weekend started off slow as the weather people kept insisting we would probably get around 6 inches from the storm. Being the storms center was hoovering around New York it kept the heavy snow to our north.  If the storm had centered around North Carolina then it would have impacted us directly.  Turns out the storm only gave us a few inches if that. But we had already decided to stay in, as the gusty winds made it feel bitterly cold.

Sunday was a different story.  We made up for the lack of doing nothing for sure.  Looked at two houses, went to lunch at the Reading Terminal fun little spot in Philly with many different eateries to choose from, then onto the Tattoo Convention and even fit in a little shopping as well. 

Felt rather like a fish out of water at the Tattoo Convention as I'm pretty sure I was the only person without ink.  Think the man and I were the only two there that looked like we stepped out of the JCrew catalog sporting vibrant colors (we definitely got some looks), majority of people sported black in either the grunge or biker look. Many of the girls were scantily clad. Next time I will sport one of my cute flannels instead. 

Unlike me the man is inked, in fact he has quite a few tattoos which often times surprise most people and drive me nuts. But he was wearing lots of layers so they were not visible to others.
He has a big four leaf Celtic type of clover on his arm, with a shady looking leprechaun below it.  On his ankles he has one for the Denver Broncos, SF Giants and frat initials from his college days.  At least the ankles ones are not too noticeable but the arm ones drive me crazy.

Don't get me wrong I think the artwork involved in tattoos is phenomenal, I enjoy checking them out on others.  In fact, we have become rather hooked on that reality show Inkmaster. And though I have thought about getting one or even two I know it would drive me crazy to know it was permanently on my skin.  This may sound funny but I would feel like my skin is dirty and get tired of it being in same place. ha

I have no photos to show from the weekend which I'm a little bummed about.  But sometimes it's good to simply enjoy the moment without worrying about capturing it on film. 

Anyway, this Monday I'm simply trying to get some work done. I've decided it's easier to make lists then have to try to remember it all.  Plus seeing it written down helps inspire me to complete it in a more timely fashion. So it's back to working on the list.
