I was pretty busy last week so I decided to skip doing a TILT and instead saved it all for today, so there’s even more good stuff! :)
♥ It’s been so sunshiney lately! Still a little cool and windy some days, but SUNSHINE!
♥ I finished the Hunger Games Trilogy. I think I am having fewer nightmares now as a result too, haha. I started reading Water for Elephants, which is great as well. My mom read it a long time ago and recommended it to me; last year when I went to visit her we went to see the movie and I really liked it so I figured why not read the book? It took me long enough, but I’m almost half way through now and thoroughly enjoying it.
♥ Got my tattoo worked on! It’s all itchy and peely right now but when it’s done healing, I’ll take pics. In this session, we did all of the color on that top band- you can see her starting to add the blue here. It took about 4 hours. If you live in the greater Puget Sound area, Savannah at Mordor Tattoo is rad. I’ve known her for 10 years and she has blossomed into an amazing artist.
♥ The Space Needle had it’s 50th birthday and got a fresh new paint job to replicate it’s original look at the World’s Fair in 1962. The roof is once again “Glactic Gold”, which looks more like orange to me. I couldn’t get far enough away to get a good shot, but you can see a teeny bit of the color peeking up at the top.
♥ And as many times as I have been to the gum wall in Post Alley, I’ve never actually put gum on it until last week. It’s just a boring white piece, but it’s what I had in my purse. Mmm germy.
♥ The wait is over and I am finally in California, visiting my mom! I haven’t been to visit her in over a year, I hope it won’t be that long until I can visit again!
♥ And only 20 days until my boyfriend comes home on leave! I haven’t seen him (in person) since the beginning of last August… 10 months, yikes! Just a couple more weeks of Skyping and he’ll be here!!!
♥ Oh yeah, other stuff I did downtown? Posed with a cardboard standee of Jim Parsons at the comic book store. I <3 Sheldon 4-eva!
♥ In case you didn’t know, April 25th was Hairstylist Appreciation Day… I hope you all appreciated your hairstylists!
♥ My friends bands Skablins and Nigel Mustafa played on Saturday night. I drank more than I intended to and only sort of remember dancing to the second band, and may or may not have let my friend Soleil draw a sharpie mustache on me. It was a lot of fun despite the wicked hangover the next day.
♥ One of my favorite musicians/artists, Amanda Palmer launched a Kickstarter for her new album with The Grand Theft Orchestra. I wish I wasn’t flat broke right now or I would have donated more, but I’d like to share the link in case any of you Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer fans missed it!
♥ We went and saw the documentary Chimpanzee for my roommate’s birthday. It was really cute! Since we went in the opening week, a portion of the ticket price went to the Jane Goodall foundation which is awesome. I recommend seeing the movie if you get a chance!
♥ And check out all of my lovely new sponsors and friends in the sidebar!
Hope you are all having a great week, and sorry if I am a little bit M.I.A. from Twitter, Facebook, etc. but I want to spend lots of quality time with my mom!
