Recap November 2022

My goals for Science Fiction Month:

  1. Read a science fiction novel
  2. Continue watching Battlestar Galactica
  3. Watch Escape From New York

The results? I did not watch a single episode of Battlestar. I watched 3/4 of Escape From New York when Tubi decided it didn’t need to play anymore and it wasn’t going to reload it for me, so I gave up. I read TWO science fiction novels. Semi-success. 😀

Book Reviews:

Night of the Living Trekkies

All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1)

Currently Reading:

The other notable thing that happened during November would be that Mr. C&M and I got memorial tattoos for our beloved dog Ozzy. (He would have been 14 years old today.)

It was a bittersweet tattoo and my most emotional one yet. But I am so happy to have it.

New Tattoo

When you’re young and dumb and full of excitement, you tend to do dumb things that seem like a grand idea at the time. For example, letting a friend who is learning to tattoo, practice on you. Free tattoos sound good but let me be the first to tell you, “STOP! Don’t do it!” 

Unfortunately, both my husband and I made these mistakes back in the day. So, for his birthday this year, he asked to get his monstrosity fixed. One of my patients at the pharmacy is a tattoo artist, we’ve been chatting about tattoos for years so it was time to make an appointment. After the appointment last night, it was decided that it was time to start redoing all those old tattoos in the future.

Cupcakes and Machetes tattoo advice: Do your research! And live by this motto: “Good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good.”

If you combine those two pieces of advice, you will save yourself a lot of money in the long run.
