still slightly ill, i gathered myself on my day off and drove to baton rouge. i acquired a really cool flask with paint splatters from urban outfitters. :) i saw a tall, thin, blonde-headed boy with magnificent tattoos on each arm and on his right foot (and god knows where else there may be some). i want my tattoos to have a deeper meaning. i'm yearning for something more below the surface in life, and for people to understand it. on the way back, i ignored the hour-long traffic jam, caught a glimpse of birds flying south for the winter, rolled down my window and blared my music. i haven't done that in almost a year. that was me just celebrating the anniversary.
