Crate and Barrel is having a contest to win a dream wedding. You should head over there and vote for these guys, because: 1. It would be cool for a gay couple to win and 2. the story of how they met and how he proposed is sweet and hilarious.
I really want to get my tattoo soon. I’ve been wanting it for at least 2 years now so I don’t think I’ll change my mind. Also it would be on my shoulder so I wouldn’t have to look at it and I don’t think I’ll have a major world outlook change where I suddenly hate the whole world. Also the poem I want tattooed is at least 700 years old so I don’t really have to worry about it not being cool in a few years. I’m not sure why I really want to get it so badly right now, but I think it maybe because Jordan, my younger sister, already has two tattoos, and her boyfriend/ex-boyfriend/?? just got a new one that looked really good.
This is what it would look like, I kind of wish I could find a calligraphy version, but I like the idea of actually being able to read it easily.

I also recently thought about another idea for something on my bicep. It is actually my other favorite poem, “Tyger, Tyger” by William Blake. Blake was an artist besides being a poet and all his poems were originally accompanied by etchings. I’m think the etching would look really cool as a tattoo. If I end of getting this one, I might get is companion piece “The Lamb” on my other arm. Thoughts?
