Sorry Blackhawks and Blues, I’m no spring chicken anymore and I can only make it through two overtime periods. God speed to you both in the third and beyond.
I have lost many hours of sleep to playoff extra time, including once where I was up until after 4 but younger me is very disappointed in me; ”You have tomorrow off, you fool!” it’s screaming. Just can’t do’er, put a fork in me.
Flake with drawing of Osiris seated on his throne within a shrine. Egyptian Ptolemaic Period, 305- 30 B.C.E.
Even if he were not labeled by the hieroglyphs at the right (“Osiris, the great god”), this deity would be easy to identify. Osiris, lord of the underworld, is always shown as a mummy, often wearing the White Crown of Upper Egypt adorned with two feathers of Ma’at (cosmic harmony). Here the god holds his characteristic crook and flail and is seated in a shrine or under a canopy.
Though the almond eye, long nose, and full lips suggest a New Kingdom date (Dynasties XVIII–XX, circa 1539–1070 B.C.), many other details indicate that the sketch was made in the Ptolemaic Period. The meticulous detail, manifest in the delineation of the ear, the eye, the plaited beard, the nostril, the thumbnails, and the feather pattern of the throne, is diagnostic for Egyptian drawing and relief of the fourth through first centuries B.C.
You have previous tattoos? I used to be very adverse, but now I’m kinda liking them, so I’m a bit jealous.
Yep! I have four currently, and I have at least 2 more planned after this upcoming one, that I hope to get to before long. It’s cliché but it’s been true with me - once you start, you can’t stop; they’re addictive.
So next tattoo is booked, two weeks from now.
I’m proper nervous for this one because this will be my first where most of it will be artist interpretation and that gets me worked up, as a confessed control freak. But I brought in some photos and talked about it and he seemed to understand everything I was saying so it should be fine. It only lasts forever.
This is going to make it sound like I only watch the Mystery TV channel but I just stumbled upon an episode of Law & Order: Original where Jerry Orbach is playing an attorney for the defendant. I don’t remember this at all so it’s holding my attention.
Just to be clear - I typed in the wrong number sequence for the radio station channel as I was heading to the kitchen to make dinner but I didn’t notice right away as I was answering texts and then I heard his voice and here we are. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Bonus: dinner hasn’t been made or started.
OMG, I remember that one…especially with his ever so GOB condescending voice…it was fantastic.
Right? If you take away everything about this episode’s story otherwise - and you should, it’s horrifying - his attitude in the whole thing is majestic, with his middle-aged boy band hair on display.
oh jesus, I stumbled upon that episode of L&O:SVU that has Will Arnett playing a real creep-o and I’m unsettled by it. The awful blonde hair has me cringing the most.
Somebody at Taco Bell Canada (probably stoned) must have remarked: “Canadians love fries with lots of stuff on top!” That is the only explanation for this only-in-Canada Taco Bell menu item, a bastardization of the least-Mexican Mexican food and an obvious stab at making “poutine,” fake-Mexican style. If you’re wondering when Canada will get the Taco Bell breakfast menu, the CEO has officially declared, “When you take Justin Bieber back.”
I didn’t realize this only happened here….it’s a must when you have decided that food-like substance is good enough for you.
