As promised...


It finally healed - even though the skin is so new it's slippery-looking, like a snake's.

It's about two inches over my ankle, and neatly covers a scar made by a mean spider that bit me five years ago.

Apropos of nothing, the electric toothbrush arrived today (thanks, Dad!)...and came with a warning to use on "teeth, gums, and tongue only - no other body parts."

I don't even know where to go with that one, or whether to laugh, cry, or howl about the fact that there is a need to include that kind of warning...

So I'm off Wednesday to California, and my little bro and I are off Thursday to NYC for a few days. I don't know if or when I'll have access to e-mail, let alone posting, so I'm not ignoring all of you lovelies!

Want anything from NYC?

A wise man once told me: When the cat is away the mice will run and jump. (he also frequently said "I have no english.")


Have fun in NYC!

Lynn said...

I want a travelogue of your journey and the things that happen on the trip. It would be fun to read your account over several posts.

I hope you and your very cool bro have a wonderful time.

I wonder what else they would use that toothbrush for?

....I bet it would make a great toenail cleaner ;-)



Have fun !!!

The Tatt looks sweet!

Beautiful tattoo... oh and how one could use an electric toothbrush ... just imagine (or not if even your own imagination could gross you out...lol). have a great time in CA & NY.

Cool tattoo but what does it say? It is probably something young people know about and old people do not. But old people might know multiple uses for an electric toothbrush.....like cleaning floor tile, etc:)

Have a safe trip.

Beautiful tattoo! Warnings like that are a complete waste of ink and paper. There was a sticker on a tomato tray I bought that read helpful tip: Plant tomatoes in a sunny spot. You don't say!

Have a great trip to NYC!

Ally said...

My hubby is addicted to his electric toothbrush. Hmmm.

Love the tat!

I'm going to admit I'm very jealous of your travels. NYC is awesome, just be sure not to walk around in flip flops! Trust me, I lived there for three years :)

RA said...

Neat tattoo! I hate electric toothbrushes. I have one, but can only use it once in a while.... it makes my whole head tremble!
Have fun in NY! :)

Riot Kitty said...

Everyone, thanks for the well wishes!

RT: I will!
Lynn: Good idea. I am bringing my camera.
Mac: Somehow, I doubt that's what first popped into your head!
H: Thanks, and I'd rather not imagine!
GA: It means compassion in Tibetan. I wrote another post about it - click on the pink link.
Darth: I will. Don't worry. My bro can act like a monkey sometimes ;)
A: Thanks, and that is hilarious! As opposed to putting them in the freezer?
Ally: I lived here for 3.5 (college), and I know your warning is valid ;0
S: Thanks! I will do that.
RA: Thanks! I'm trying to get used to it ;)

Enjoy your trip...and toothbrush! :)

When you go to NY, bring me back my heart. I miss it.

G said...

I echo Lynn. A travelogue with pics spread out over multiple posts would be just the thing for this armchair traveler.

Fireblossom said...

I love your tattoo!

The only thing I want from NYC is for you to get done there and come back and blog with me again.

Riot Kitty said...

Ily: Awwww!
G: Cool, will do.
FB: Merci! I will :)

JLee said...

looks painful though. ;)
Have a wonderful trip to NYC.

Have fun, be safe, and watch where you're putting that toothbrush!
