Finding Diana

An everyday woman's guide to figuring out what the hell happened to her life



Welcome to my world.  I am trying to figure out what became of me and I want to share this agonizing journey with the general public.

Please feel free to comment, but not to judge.  Ok, well we will all be judging, but just don't let me know about it.

Tattoo You

No kidding, I could not make this up.  Yesterday I saw a man with a tattoo on his forehead that said "".  On his forehead.  You cannot hide that.  Not even with bangs.  When asked about it, he said that he had a job at a tattoo parlor and he was so greatful for the job that he had the staff tattoo his forehead.  Great judgement- he is no longer working there, but the tattoo is still there.

I really think its incredible when people decide to do something so stupid.  What would be going on in your head to decide that a tattoo is a good idea - on your face no less.  There are so many other things you can do that are equally expressive but not as insane.  

For a long time, I thought that if I were to get a tattoo, it would be of the Boston Red Sox logo.  I can't imagine where I would get it though.  There is no good place.  There is not much skin I like to show.  If it is on my arm, it would swing like a trapeeze.  If it were on my leg, it would looks strange and would change shape after a while.  I certainly would not get it on my forehead.

I also laugh at people who get a love interest's name tattooed on them.  That is a surefire way to doom the relationship.  I'm sure within a week or two the relationship ends.  Imagine how Bristol Palin would have felt if she were to have Levi's name tattooed on her.  Of course being that her name is that of a shaving cream and she named her son Tripp, an accidental act that causes injuries, I am pretty sure good judgement is not one of her better qualities.

In any case, think before you tattoo.  Don't get anything on your face - what would your mother say?

Ok -- I have to make you giggle a little. A few weeks ago I hired a landscaper who was just starting his own business. He showed up with a buddy of his who looked like he was in a prison release program. Tattoos from head to toe. He was wearing a wife beater which revealed some Hebrew writing so I told him to pull the straps aside and he said \"oh it\'s in Jewish, I mean Hebrew\". I explained that I could read Hebrew and as he pulled the straps to the side I read it and could understand every word but one. As I translated it he finally interupted with \"it says, G-d is the own one who can judge me\". I asked him if he wanted the bad news to wit he replied \"what?\". I told him they mis-spelled \"Judge\". Hehe - I reassured him that I\'d be the only one that would ever know that other than him.

I am convinced that all \"Chinese\" tattoos really say either \"American Sucker\" or \"General Tso\"
