Well, I had shitty day of sitting on the switchboard and dealing with idiots and assholes. To cheer myself up, it's time to blog about my favorite things.
First off, I start my puppet tomorrow afternoon. I'm really excited to see what Russ came up with. All I saw was a very, very rough sketch in Sharpie. Part of me is nervous that I won't like her face, but on the other hand, he's a very talented artist and he's gotten to see my personality. I think he'll do right by me (and her). I want a very specific feel to her and anything less I won't accept. I know that sounds kind of hardline, but if it's going to be on my body for ever and ever 'til death do us part, I want it to be a certain way. I lack the artistic talent to draw it out myself and sometimes giving a verbal description just doesn't hack it. I'll know for sure in 16 hours. I'm a ball of nervous and excited when I think about it. Unlike with Lucius, I'm fully committed. No second guesses here. Even if it does cause my parents to have a major cardiac event...
Secondly, Monica called me back. She was totally on board with my idea and I'll be tattooed by her for sure at the convention. My appointment is for 3:30 on May 8. Now I just need to make sure the BFF is gonna house me for the weekend. LOL! She was very honest with what she could do with my idea. When she asked about size I said 4 inches and she was like "It's gonna need to be bigger" and I was like "That's cool, I'm just guessing when I give it in inches". I put down a deposit, though I'm probably going to call back closer to time to get a better estimate on total cost. Her shop is hosting it, so it might be a bit on the pricey side. I'm really looking forward to it. I still have to tell Phil I need to reschedule again, but I'm not totally canceling and that's good...right? It'll just probably be June before we get started. Originally, my first session with him was supposed to be next Sunday. Life happens.
Now to chill out a bit and then work out. Hopefully that'll put me in a better mood.
