Well, first i was sick, and now the whole family is sick. Few things are more pitiful than a sick toddler. It's a sore throat, runny nose situation mostly, but toddlers have trouble coping with drainage...

Back to work... I watched Amazing Race last night. There's a heavily-tattooed couple on the show (Nick & Vicki) and I found myself looking more at their tattoos than I have in the past. Unfortunately, Nick is a bit of a dick. Still, it was good to see the tattoos so prominent and on-display.

i didnt get to watch any of my shows last night.. but on a good note i got to wish a friend happy birthday! ^_^

Pesky work is interfering with my ability to pursue personal interests. I've got to buy more lottery tickets so that I can see more daylight (or have an infinitesimal chance of it). It was dark when I went to work and dark when I got out. Oh winter...

I'm about five episodes into the first season of Miami Ink and it is an interesting introduction to contemporary "tattoo culture" - part of it anyway. SG is another introduction for me and I'm also reading a book by John Irving that talks a lot about tattoo artists: Until I Find You. Finally, I've been reading an article in Inked magazine about Mario...

Assorted Thanksgiving thoughts:

- I've never really read blogs before joining SG, but I find your blogs to be fascinating and inspiring. Perhaps my own will become more interesting in time.

- I'm really getting into the whole culture and aesthetic of tattoos, and that's new for me. Earlier tonight, though, I visited the Body Modification Ezine site for the first time and it...

After watching the CMA awards recently, I'm planning to pay a lot more attention to country music. Sure, there's a lot of corny crap out there, but some of it is surprisingly good. Maybe it's just that I live in a small southern town, or that my grandparents were tobacco farmers, but the harmonies ring true. The Zac Brown Band was a...

Did you know that country is the genre with the most radio stations? I thought that was interesting.
theowl:
That is interesting! My brother-in-law works for a plumbing company and drives around in a pick-up for much of the day listening to country music radio. I think that's pretty common in much of the country, with people who work on the move, and it may fund a lot of radio.

I also heard that the pick-up truck is the most popular type of vehicle in the U.S, and not just in rural areas. I live in a rural area, so I want one just for taking trash to the dump and stuff like that. It would be fun to drive around the countryside in a pick-up listening to country music, I think smile

I heard someone say, the other day, that the key to happiness is interest - the ability to be interested in life or the state of being intensely interested at any given time. He said that it doesn't matter what one is interested in, because the source of the happiness is not external but, rather, our own capacity and willingness to pay attention to something...

Funny... the comments section in my profile says that I posted something called "Here's some naked pictures" but I posted to threads with totally different titles. I guess it's a glitch.
