|In case you've ever wondered, this is what an in-process tattoo looks like|
So, that's the story of the tattoo. Not as dramatic as I had built it up to be beforehand, but it's on there for good, so it's a good thing I really like it. And of course, it's a memento of a very different year of my life, (as well as being a constant reminder now to get my arms in shape for my favorite activity that came out of the year -- rock climbing) and I like that a lot.
I think in a week or two I'm going to write a post that's a sort of retrospective of the year, and then of course around the New Year I'm going to write the plan for New Things in 2011. I know what things have been my favorites through the year, but I'm a bit curious about other people's reactions. I'd love to know what things sounded interesting and fun to other people and of course, as always, I'm always psyched with suggestions of new things.
Thanks so much to everyone who made this a fabulous birthday this year, and also to everyone who has participated in all the New Things I've done this year! It's been a great adventure and I'm looking forward to a lot more.
