    State of Affairs, Part 2

    What else has been going on? Hm, let’s see.

    I got another tattoo:

    IMG_6355

    That’s after it was just done, obviously. This is just the start. I’m going to turn my whole back into a treasure map.

    You know, if I get around to it. Which I probably won’t.

    Somewhere shortly after that we got lice. I’ve managed to avoid it for almost 5 years of having a kid, so I guess it was time? Is there a lottery for things like that? We were on high alert, though, as we got an early warning from the family we’d been staying with, so at the first sign of a nit I called in a chemical air strike.

    And holy fuck, that was a lot of laundry. But nobody had to shave their head so I consider it a success. If you can call having bugs chewing on your scalp “a success”.

    (I bet your head is itchy now.)

    Roller derby is…rolling on. Our league’s first “real” season started and we have our first “real” bout in November. As an actual team, that is, rather than just scrimmages with random people. I haven’t broken anything yet, so I guess I’ll keep doing it. (I occasionally pull a groin muscle, which is the sexiest muscle to pull, I think.)

    PSA Section:

    Do you read Suburban Matron? If you don’t, you should, because Becky is the bees knees. Anyway, GoDaddy sold her domain to some pimply teenager living in his mom’s basement, so she is now located at http://suburbanmatron.blogspot.com. If you have links to her old URL, kindly update them, and if you don’t read her blog yet, go visit her there.

    Next PSA – shortly after Alfred and I started co-habitating, he started playing an MMO called City of Heroes. I gave it a try and was totally hooked; he got me my own account for Valentine’s day, because we’re nerds like that (and also because he wanted his account back). We have both played the game for over 7 years – it’s sort of our default hobby. Recently NCSoft made the abrupt decision to close the game down, despite it still being profitable. It has a steady and loyal fan base that is trying to save it. If you want to save it too (or just want to be a friend and help me out), there’s a petition with over 20,000 signatures on it already.

    End PSA section.

    So that’s about it in the State of Un Mom. I’m sure there’s other stuff I’m forgetting to tell you.

    Maybe I’ll even make blog posts out of it.

    I like it when you blog.

    That's a son of a bitch about Becky's address. We should march on that Chicago basement and take back the domain.

    Tattoo looks fantastic. I'd like to see a tattoo retrospective, should you find yourself in front of a computer without a thing to blog about.

    Love it. Do you have any tats representing your kiddo? I was thinking of getting the first letter of the first name of each of mine, in a scripty design, but not 100% sold on it. Thought you would be the one to have an excellent idea.

    That seriously looked like it hurt, a lot! :P I want to get a tattoo, but I'm terrified it will hurt, so does it?:P I love the whole treasure map idea! :P

    And oh my god, you totally had me scratching my head! did you remember to get a picture of the lice? Um cause you know, for your blog? LOL :D
