Finally my new Tattoo makes an appearance thanks to my new Camera Phone. Not the best Quality in the Pic but at least it’s up finally.


Long weekend

Posted in Tattoo, Work with tags , , on January 13, 2008 by abraxus

Of course it’s not a “Long” long weekend, as in a Holiday weekend, but for me it has been an interminably long one. I haven’t gone on about my work in this Blog as of yet but I am sure it will happen sooner or later so stay tuned for that eventual post.

Suffice it to say for now though that the place I work for usually brings in about $42k on a normal weekend from Friday to Sunday. This weekend¬† we are at almost 39k and we don’t even have Sunday added into the sales figure yet. A ‘typical’ Sunday for us is around 10k. It might not sound like much to folks not into the food industry but that extra 7k in sales translates into a monstrous amount of work for us. Thusly it has been a Loong weekend to say the least.

On the upside though Sunday night tends to be a cakewalk so I am in a better mood. Had I made this post last night things would be much more full of “For Fucks Sakes” and such.¬† Add to that the fact that our long awaited renovations begin on Monday and it almost balances out the weekend stress.

In other news my Tattoo is coming along nicely in the healing process and I should be able to take a proper photo of it to post here in another day or two. I am very pleased with the work that was done.

Barbers from Hell

No this has nothing to do with Sweeney Todd. I think I had his sister as my Barber today though.

Since I work in a Kitchen for a living I keep my hair quite short by necessity to avoid the hassles that come with longer hair and hairnets. Also it is MUCH easier to deal with in the summer months because it doesn’t get all heavy and weighted down in the humidity. But that is neither here nor there right now.

As most people do I frequent one particular hair stylist to get mine cut. She knows how I like it and we’re fairly friendly so it’s a pleasant diversion from my days tasks to talk with her while she takes care of my hair. Apparently she is on vacation and has a stunt double doing hair for her.

Why do I call her a ‘Stunt Double’ you ask? Well it’s simple. Stunt Doubles handle stunts while the Actors do the acting. You can draw the parallels here I hope. I can’t say she butchered my hair (score 1 for me on the extra Sweeney Todd reference!) but she didn’t exactly get it right either. Upon closer inspection it’s not terribly even at the front and sine I carry it short it tends to stand straight up so the uneven area is REALLY noticeable.

Needless to say I shall be having words with my usual Stylist when she returns.

My Post Hair Care fun today was buying a spiffy leather carrying case/stand for my PSP and scoring a free EB Games Calendar with it and snagging lunch with the nice lady at Mr. Sub. I loves me my Subbage.

Day Two of Tattoo Recovery has me mightily impressed with the work I had done yesterday, it looks amazing!
