As most of you already know, I have a deep affection for words. Especially adjectives or otherwise descriptive modifiers. But that's not what this post is about. This one, as you may have been able to guess from the above Quote
, is about modifiers to my body. My left shoulder to be precise.
No pics yet. I haven't had anything done, just yet. But next week it begins all over again. Allow me to explain.
, Emo Bob and myself got to spend some time together. It was exceptionally satisfying for me since I haven't seen the Boy in almost a month - since his mother has seen fit to ground him from visiting me whenever he gets himself into some kinda trouble with her. But anyways, we started our evening off at the Golden Corral. We gorged our happy faces with an assortment of wonderful foods. We even did dessert!
From there we proceeded to Z Spot Studio
so I could talk to my atiste, Z, about my next phase of "body modifications" - as they are now being refered to. Unfortunately for me, Z wasn't in. She works only by appointment now, since she has Carpal Tunnel. But, fortunately for me, Dave - Z's resident piercing expert - called her so we could talk.
I explained what I want to have done next. This time around I want to have another branding - not as big as the Cross
that you see in my profile pic - but bigger in the sense that she told me it would take nine strikes with the "iron". Which is really intense since you can watch the video
of my first branding and see that it only took five. But I understand why it'll take nine strikes. I'm having an Alpha and an Omega branded beside each other with enough space between them to ink something there after they've healed. The ink I plan on getting will be a sword that runs up-n-down between the Alpha and Omega. And then the Greek script of Hebrews 4:12 ("The word of God is living and powerful and sharper than every two-edged sword") around it all. Sounds cool, doesn't it? By doing this, I will retore balance to my body - at least, that's what Z says.
And the timing couldn't be better for us both. Z is going to be having surgery for her Carpal Tunnel in two weeks. So I'm going back next Friday (that would be February 22 - for anyone who would care to witness this event), at 6:30 to have the brandings done. That means we both have plenty of time to heal before we move on to the ink.I AM SO GEEKED ABOUT THIS !!!
OK, our evening didn't end there though. We returned to our church to do anther episode of Geek-N-Tell
. This time we watched Highlander; The Immortal Edition. Which, I suppose, is just a fancy way of saying The Director's Cut.
It is unfortunate that you'll probably be able to download this episode before JT finishes editting our episode from last week. But I'm sure you won't mind. JT is doing the best he can to reduce our 56 minutes worth of blathering into 20-25 minutes of something that makes a little sense. No small task considering the way our conversation jumped around last week.
And I will say this on his behalf also; Don't applaud, just throw money...
He's got donate buttons on the blog so anyone who enjoys our labors can support our attempts to buy better equipment - or, at least to buy our own equipment so we won't always have to record at church.
Sorry for the shameless plug...
Anyways, we wrapped up another great evening. And now I'm looking forward to next Friday.
