tat planning, the fry guy, and a klutzy move

today i work late afternoon to close, so i have lotsa time to complete a mishmash of errands.

*my* tattoo place!

as noted yesterday, it is only fifty forty-nine days til my birthday. ages ago, i decided that i will be getting tattoo #3 on my 43rd bday. it’s a tradition ->

tattoo #1 – birthday #39:

tattoo #2 – birthday #40

[it was an error on my part to skip the last tow years; should have done #3 and #4, then!].

because i ONLY want tattoo artist bryan at tora to do my tat, AND i ONLY want to go on wednesday, january 9th, i decided to get the ball rolling early – so, this morning i went in to tora and booked my consult appt for the first week in december. i have a clear idea of what i want and where i want it, and i know bryan will do a fabulous job. both tats #1 and #2 surpassed my expectations. i am already looking forward to my birthday!


sure, NOW the fry truck is out!!!

dave’ fry truck, parked in waterloo square, earlier today

remember when i wanted a pic of this fry truck?? actually, dave has got it right by being open this week – the weather is simply spectacular today!

look at that sky!

tomorrow is to be just as nice…but someone told me we are to have accumulating snow on saturday?? noooo!!!….so dave better make hay while the sun shines!

and, dave had a neighbour, today:

another entrepreneur is taking advantage of the glorious day!

is this the start of a trend in uptown?? more moveable feast wagons on the way, perhaps?


last night, i was getting down my favourite cereal bowl, when an unfortunate incident occurred:

photo of the day #3:

a re-creation. i actually DID think of taking a pic last eve, but was too ticked off and tired to follow through.

i did not lift my cereal bowl high enough, and it knocked the pottery bowl that i made for new experience #29, last year, splat onto the counter. well, i guess i can be glad that it was not my favourite cereal bowl (also pottery) that was destroyed!


have a great day!

    The artwork for your tatoos is beautiful, I’d say you’re right to stick with the same artist. I have to confess when first looking at the cardinal one, I could NOT figure out which part of your body that was! Sometimes, I need more perspective! So sorry about your bowl. I’m so clumsy. I haven’t broken anything lately. I’m probably jinxing myself by saying that!!

      fan, i do think of tattoos as astristry and i really like bryan’s style – i know he’ll do a great job with #3! yes, that cardinal pic is from kind of a weird angle! fingers crossed that no bowls go broken in your home, esp the big purple bowl!!!

    The numbers on the second tattoo are years you ran marathons (or the Boston marathon?) right? That’s really cool how you’ve planned them all out.
    So sorry about your bowl…I get bummed when I break things too!

      yes, that is right, zo – i have the three years included in that. optimistically, i had him leave room for more!! such a surprise when – CRASH! – there goes an item! luckily, the clean up was not too bad! enjoy your thanksgiving day!

    Ooh, that’s an awesome cardinal! Can’t wait to see the new one!
