six inches forward and five inches back

so i called Allie around 11 last night. this is how that conversation went:

"WHO DIS?!?!?!?!"

"i don't get it."

"don't get what?"


"and the Angry Inch?"


"i LOVE it."

"i know.. and i feel like less of a Number because i don't get it. i mean i GOT Life Aquatic.. but this.. this i don't get."

"yeah i DIDN'T get Life Aquatic... but Hedwig... i loved the music.. the lyrics, you know.. and if nothing else, the FABULOUS makeup"

"eddie chalked it up to never smoking pot, that's why he didn't get Life Aquatic"

"yeah that must be my reason too..."

"but Hedwig....granted i've only watched about 11 minutes of it, but i just don't get it."

"you should call Tasty, she's the one who told me about it."

"TASTY???? shut the fuck up!"

"no really"

"ima give it about 13 more minutes... and then ima watch the rest of the first season of Grey's Anatomy... i just don't get this... "

"ok loving you"

"loving you"

yeah i didn't even make it through 13 more minutes of it. and i usually like abstract movies like that.... i just didn't get it.

BUT i will agree about the makeup.

my Mimi is in the hospital.

she started feeling poorly after my mom left dallas, last weekend. and i got a call from my mom that she was rushed to the hospital last night because she wasn't breathing on her own. now she has emphysema already and is tethered to an oxygen machine all the time anyway... but this not breathing thing freaks me out. her doctors say they other than not breathing on her own, there is NOTHING else wrong with her. BUT.... breathing is pretty essential.

yeah. i'm worried.
i'm not ready for my Mimi to go yet. that old bird has LOTS of livin left to do. and i'll kick her georgia peach ass if she thinks differently.

so, could you spare some healthy breathe-y lung juju and send it her way?

oh how i wish i were a trinity....

so that if i lost a part of me i'd still have two of the same to live.

my mom and brother were here this weekend and we had the BEST time. they came in on Saturday and we ate BBQ and watched movies. on sunday, we got up and watched MORE movies and the baby brother was getting antsy about getting his tattoo. see, he decided long ago that he wanted one, and i was supposed to go with him to get it before i moved. but that didn't happen. so, i promised him that i would get him one for his 21st birthday, which was February 22nd. and a good sister sticks to her word...

i'd heard of a place that a friend had gotten some work done and we called them and they were booked. we called another place where i got my new nose ring.. and decided that sounded like a good place.

have design
have money
have one antsy, nervous brother
have one mother who "isn't going to SIT IN THERE and watch comeone do that to HER baby"
have one husband who is over exaggerating the tattooing process
have one Christel who is trying to wrangle all parties to Sugar Daddy's before 3 pm.


we talked to the guy... he drew some stuff... we conversed and changed....


the outline.

the shading.

some more shading.


i got this same tattoo about 9 years ago, also at the age of 21. it was from a necklace that i wore for years. it is a james avery design and it is a trinity symbol. when Z's father died, it was just me, and mom, and Z. and throughout my life i found myself in various groupings of 3s.
(see how the Number thing all falls into place, too?)

E has 2 of them on his forearm as well. they are the end pieces to a bigger celtic design.

it all comes full circle.

p.s. i miss you guys already. :(

for a long time, "Meet Virginia" was my favorite Train songs.

off the new CD: For Me it's You... this one is quickly moving up my list...

"always remember"
Always remember
I'm by your side
Such a shame that you had to go
So much more that I'd like to know
So many things you forgot to show me how to do
When times are hard I forget your gone
I go to call you before it dawns on me
That you wont be there now
But I still have these words that you gave me
Always remember I'm by your side
Always remember I'm by your side
I got two kids of my own now
They grow up so fast
And how I wish you did not miss that part of who I am
But I keep doing all that I can do
And I will smile when they ask about you
And I will sing to them every day
With the voice and the words that you used to say
Will change the world one day
Always remember I'm by your side
Always remember I'm by your side
And while they grow up you will show up
In things they do and say
Like a reflection to a connection
Of who they'll be one day
They will learn to get their wings
And fly through the changes life will bring
So on
And it will go on
And you will go on
And they will sing with the voice that you gave them
Always remember I'm by your side
Always remember I'm by your side
I'm by your side
I'm by your side
