I think that's the first time I've actually heard someone use the word "eclectic" out loud.
I must say that I acredit my vocabulary entirely to the fact that I poured over Tolkien novel's, Discworld novels, played text-based MUDs and RPG's loooong before there was such a thing as "voice acting" in video games, all well before my comprehension was appropriately developed for such.... I remember always having a pocket dictionary with me for these endeavors as a young child because it drove me nuts not knowing what words meant..... I still have quite the collection of handy little pocket dictionaries might I add.....I was a strange kid... I never grew out of any of that come to think of it.... including the "being strange" part :P
That is pretty cool. Looks like you stayed cool and calm under pressure, I would have been all, "I....errr....welll...ummm.....tattoos?"
Yeah, I pulled a goof ball move on live t.v. ("hey, hey, LOOK AT THIS"), yours was way more noble... :(
That'd be a pretty cool convention to check out though... Always love a good tat, even if I wouldn't get one. That, and some of the work people get done is out of this world.
Thanks for your kind words friends but in truth I typically am, in most respects, a complete klutz and embarasment to myself.... clumsy doesn't even do it justice... I'm like a walking hazard... communication, speaking and art are the few respects were I tend to shine on occasion.... otherwise I'm something of a sentient trainwreck with interesting hair.
@ Dice: Love of the tat tis the seed from which all ink is born my dear :) I once thought I would never EVER (even working as artist) want to get a tattoo.... now the only spots not adorned with something are my right arm and most my torso (saving em for few particular artists with very long waiting lists).... The thing that always turned me off about them was the permanence of the whole thing.... Once your around em long enough though, you start to realize (especially working as an artist) they are really not quite as permanent as you think, and when that happens apprehension disappears and one day it just seems like the thing to do for the hell of it. Next thing you know your freakin' hooked-LoL
