Here's a picture of my tattoo. I was playing with my cell phone camera last night after drinking a pitcher of margaritas and soaking in the hot tub.
I got it on the day before my 30th birthday [March 16th], so, if I ever regretted having a tattoo, I could blame it on a youthful indiscretion. "I was in my 20s," I could say, my voice slightly tinged with shame and remorse.
The character, itself, is pronounced "inochi" in Japanese which means "life." In Chinese, I believe it is "ming" and means "fate" or "destiny." It's located just above my inner right ankle.
In other exciting news, it's VUBOQ's first ever MEAT-FREE MONDAY!!!
Do your part for your health and for the environment: Give up meat for one meal today! If you do, take a picture, post it on your blog, and leave a comment here! I'll visit and give you lots and lots and lots of meat-free smooches.
I will be combining experimental cooking with Meat-Free Monday this evening. The ingredients: portabello mushrooms caps, polenta, cheese, tomato, spinach (maybe), roasted red peppers, and some other stuff. Update this evening on how it all turns out.
