ok. it's stateside. wanted to convert it for use around the beach this summer.

I don't see DiCaprio as McGee be it a rumor or even a rumour.
Because I'm just reading them as I find them in our local recycled books place, aside from the first two, I'm reading them out of order. The Green Ripper was definitely interesting in terms of the eco-terrorism aspect, and how much McGee evolved from the earlier books.

I agree on the Leo front. You know, in a way, I think Jude Law could play the character reasonably well.

I'm sure there are a lot of physicians still practicing that got that same training. So I wouldn't be surprised to see Doctors that you'd be training under having some lingering bias against tattoos.
Yeah. That's what's holding me back. I'll reconsider it once I'm done all that jazz. Till then, I have real estate that can be covered if I want some thing else. I don't do this on an impulse, so it'll be a while.

My mom was first to get the picture. She wants another one now haha.

You have to really like a movie to tattoo it on your arm. Nice work though, and a good movie.

I have actually srsly considered getting that tatted' on me somewhere.

It was the logo of the Men's Clothing store that my abuelo (gramps) used to raise my mother's family on.

I'm not allowed to say anything bad about "ink" this year because of team sponsorship.

Maybe they could ink some hair on the top of my bald head.

I'm "cool" with ink, but it isn't for me. A lot of my team mates have lots of body art. I do not rag on them for it. It is their choice. And they don't get on my case for not having any.

The things that are eternal in my life are my love for my wife and my love for my children. Getting ink wouldn't change that at all. I have proved that in many other ways over the years.

Good thing that I was facing away from the keyboard and screen when I did my spit-take, otherwise somebody would need to buy me some new hardware.
