I've been sick at home for the last two days. It sucks beyond the telling, but there's not much I can do about it. It's just a head cold, but it's damned inconvenient.

Registration for the Houston Marathon opens tonight at a minute after midnight. I'll register for the half-marathon, and next week (assuming I'm healthy), I'll begin training at least three days a week. Real training starts in September.

The thought of running right now sort of leaves me with an "eh" feeling, because I'm feeling pretty crappy right now and it's hot as blazes outside. Most of my initial training, though, will be done on a treadmill at my gym.

Three years ago, I told myself that I'd get my lightning tattoo after I finished the half-marathon (I got it, but I waited a year and a half to do it). This time around I want to get the fireworks underneath. I am pretty sure that I want to ask either Michelle Wortman or Hannah Aitchison to do it. We'll see, though...

Neither one of them live in Houston, but I'm willing to travel for pretty tattoos. Michele Wortman is Guy Aitchison's wife, and sometimes they do collaborative pieces together. I think he's just unbelievable. Their studio is sort of virtual. They either work on people at conventions or they borrow a friend's tattoo space somewhere in southern Illinois.

Ooh, I like her work too. I just found out that Kim Saigh is tattooing in SF in August, so I submitted a request. We'll see!

If you hear of either of those two coming to CA, will you let me know? I'd love to have either of them tattoo me if I could.

So I followed Hannah's link ... amazing stuff. Is it wrong that I absolutely love Image 15? How cool to look like you have finger paint all over your arm!

Unless of course that *IS* just paint and then it's not nearly as impressive. ;)
