My first iTunes purchase...

Well it's about time! I just opened my new iTunes account! My first purchase? Afterglow by INXS... I love this song... I have been listening to it over and over again. The new lead singer, JD Fortune, has a great voice. Very soulful with a lot of resonance.

Some of you may have heard that I will be going to a couple of INXS concerts in June... And I will get to meet the band! How cool is that?

My new boyfriend, yes I said boyfriend, actually knows the band and will be taking me to the shows. Wooo hooo! It'll be great. I've been a fan of INXS since I bought the Shaboo Shoobah LP. Yes, I said LP.

I hang out in tattoo parlors...

No I do not have any tattoos... But my pal Judy does, and I have gone with her each time to lend moral support and distracting conversation as she sits there like a masochist, contorting her face in pain as the little needle jabs her over and over again.

As you can see from the pictures this was a fix-up job... Adding embellishments and using more color then on the original application. Judy felt the first time the sunflower, situated on the inside of her left ankle, was too square shaped and bulky.

So after quickly sketching a vine and leaf design for her on a paper napkin at Carl's Junior, where by the way they have Squirt soda, off to the tattoo parlor we went. Both Judy and I were very impressed with the results.

Her latest artist was a great guy named Shannon. If you want a tattoo both Judy and I would highly recommend him. He works at Marks of Art which doesn't have a website but the link is where you can find them.
