So, if anyone is planning to get a tattoo that lives in the general Chicago area, I highly recommend Tattoo Factory. I love what I got done, much better than what I originally had planned to get, too. My artist, Salvador, was a really funny, really great guy. He said he loved doing stone work, and was very happy to do this for me. I was just glad to have someone that was excitted about doing a tattoo. I'll post pictures of it when it's nice and healed.

We got there right around 6 pm and it looked rather unbusy, so that was nice. By the time I was done, the store was flooded with people. There were another set of 3 kids getting various tats done, and they wouldn't stop talking and being all "You're a pussy, you're gonna cry! It hurts! It really does!" Me and Salvador were like, wtf is up with these damn kids? They definitly looked like suburbian boys, so we were trying to figure out just what suburb they were from. Salvador went and asked them and they got all snoody about it. When they said they were from Shaumberg, Sal and I laughed. The kid didn't know what was so funny. Granted, I'm from the 'burbs too, but I don't act like it. I've been hanging out with Dana, Misa and Isaac too long.

It was also interesting to find out that Sal knows the guy that actually started up my subdivision. He said he knows exactly where my house is, and mentioned the radio towers right by my house. I'm not frightened by this fact, I think it's kinda cool. I've never known anyone else that knows of where I live.

Dana got a wicked re-ink of her Dark Mark. The guys there kept asking me if I got my other tats done in a real shop, because aparently they were rather bad quality. The line work wasn't as smooth, and even the ink was rather bleh. After seeing Dana's redo of her Dark Mark, I'm thinking I'd like to get mine re-inked and possibly added to. I'm definitly going back to Sal, the guy was great. And now I know why people spend s much money on good tat's. Because they actually look GOOD. I'm kind of embarassed about my other ones. But I've got big plans for my Marauder's tat, maybe I should bring up my idea to Sal one of these days.

What is all this shit about Emma Watson not returning to Harry Potter? I mean, you're 5 films into it, you have 2 more to go. Why would you say no to an instant hit movie? That's like saying "Would you like an instant cool $12 million guaranteed or possibly something that will be a flop at the box office?" These actors on their high horses thinking they can just skip out on Potter films. Seriously, I don't see what her problem is. Tom Felton said he was going to quit after the 3rd one, and turn to fisheries managing. Why did that flop? Because his super stardom would follow him for the wrong reasons in fisheries managing and it was just pointless. Emma doing another film and NOT the HP films is equally as pointless. Well, ok she can do other films, but NOT doing the last two is just silly talk. She's going to do it. That's like saying "Oh, I've created this $500 costume to wear to ACen and ... I'm just not going now because I don't feel like it." It's like, wtf? Come on! You're going to do it, and you know it.

Granted, I don't know why I'm trying to keep her in the films because I'm not a fan of Hermione/Emma in the slightest. It would just look really damn weird if another random girl showed up in Hermione's place. It wouldn't feel right at all, the chemistry would be completely lost. Oh yes, there's chemistry between Dan, Emma and Rupert. Don't deny it. If anything, I bet Dan and Rupert will keep her in the last two. I know I'm not the only Potter fan that thinks this.

I don't know why I'm so adamant about this.

Back to watching Death Note 8!
