The Imminent Tattoo

That title sounds like some sort of horror novel. About a tattoo that tells the future. Or about a tattoo that's about to be inked and something goes horribly awry. Or about a tattoo that really shouldn't be inked because it's cursed and some awful omens the likes of which haven't been seen since Shakespearean days will ensue...

I almost put Sophoclesian (if that's even the right way to say it) because of Oedipus Rex, but I like the omens more in Julius Caesar. Watch out for them ides, Julius.I shall be inked!

Indeed though, I am getting a tattoo. That's what I'm getting over there on the right. I love that font. Definitely one of my favorites. I think it's hilarious that I actually have like a strict list of favorite fonts. It's still going to look all grungy but the lines will be cleaned up a little. To anyone who doesn't know, it's Latin for "The written word remains." It's part of a longer phrase. The first part of it is something like "The spoken word perishes" or something like that. I'm too lazy to look it up. I just know I like the second part and that it applies to me as a writer. Not to mention I love it. It's going on my back on my upper right shoulderblade area. It's not happening until next weekend though. Spring break starts then, and you better believe there's going to be some epic relaxation going on. And probably some more of me gazing at the Nintendo DSi which I want but cannot have. It's like my dream machine. Well, maybe only if it...nevermind.

I've been taking a few pictures here and there for the gallery I'm hoping to get up on Saturday that just kinda shows some aspects of my everyday life. I got to school early today so I parked myself in a corner of the Cathedral of Learning and took some shots of the spiffy Hogwarts-like interior. They looked like they came out pretty well, but of course my joys were dashed when I went to my advising appointment at 10 am and found out that my senior year is basically going to be as painful as the smell of cooked broccoli. And if you know me at all, you know I have an extremely deep-seeded hatred for broccoli. But I digress.

Half an hour til I get to go watch The Two Towers in my Fantasy and Romance class. Yeah, tell me all of that isn't up my alley? I've been twittering LOTR quotes all day haha. And with that, I leave you with one of my favorite LOTR youtube vids. The music is the movie score in techno and it's called "They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard." Enjoy :)
