Suffering Succotash.

Yesterday was one of those days where you proclaim that you are going to be productive, doing Trig homework in my case or writing lesson plans in Teacher Sis’s case, and you wind up not being productive at all. Well, that’s not totally true. We were very productive, sort of. It was the kind of day where you go for Thai food and end up sitting in a tattoo studio, being inked, and asking yourself “Wait, how did get here?”

In order to continue, I’m going to need a little background music.

Okay, so I got up a little late yesterday and goofed off until lunch with Word to Me. She and I were sitting there discussing the fact that we were going to have a lot of leftovers, and since mine was red curry, I was like “Maybe, I’ll take it to Dave for Lunch.” Dave hadn’t eaten lunch, so we headed his way. Cut to an hour later and I’m being tattooed. Do you want to see what I got? Okay:

Pretty nice, yeah? I think it looks badass. For those of you who are not huge nerds, it is the Hylian eagle. From the Legend of Zelda. Anyway, as we were leaving the tattoo studio, Teacher Sis called to say that she was heading there to have Dave draw up some stuff for her. Keep in mind that Teacher Sis is the only person in my immediate family without some permanent ink, it was only a matter of time. Next thing I know, she’s in the chair being inked on as well. She always said that if she got a tattoo, it wouldn’t being anything girlie like flowers or hearts or butterflies. She was so right. Here’s what she got:

My Sis is so Metal. I like how the most feminine thing about her tattoo is that Dave gave the skull eyelashes.

After all my running around and being tattooed was said and done with it was like 9pm and no Trig homework had even been seen. But the ferryman gets his fee before taking you across the river Styx, so I had to do some homework before I could go to bed. I worked until about 11pm and got about 15 problems done lowering my “to do total” to 40 problems. Yeah progress. About 12:30am the cats woke me up and I laid there thinking that I should get up and eat something. At 12:45am Pancake Land called to tell me that she was on her way home with a quick detour through the Taco Bell drive thru. At that point, I got up to eat some leftovers. Pancake Land ate her “fourth-meal” and hit the bed sleeping.

When I got back into bed I, of course, couldn’t sleep. P.L. wanted no part in the me-touching-her party, neither snuggle or otherwise, so I finally got back up to hang out with Pythagoras. We kicked it old-school (circa 530BC) until about 3:30am when I gave up and went back to bed. I gave up because my brain could not do any more Math. I did get the “to do total” down to 29 problems, though. Anyway, I laid in bed until 4 or 4:30am before finally losing consciousness. Insomnia is so cool. Then I woke up at about 10am.

I can’t help but feel a little down today. Getting up late, being really tired, and knowing that I am going to be in front of this computer most of today, is not motivational at all. I didn’t even want to make eggs (which is my favorite thing to do on the weekend) this morning. Oh, this is turning into a downer. Quick, distract them! Diatomaceous Attack!

More soon. ~SC

    It’s a little girlie…I got a pretty blue! 🙂

    So what’s wrong with butterflies, flowers and hearts?
