The New Twenty and Tattoos

Ok, I want a tattoo. What the shabangbang is really going on with me? I've been wanting one for a good while now too. After ruling out the thug life tattoo on my stomach, the love hate on my knuckles, the dripping strawberry on my right booty cheek, and the mom scroll with roses and a cross on my arm, what's left to get? HAHAHA. After figuring out the M.O.B, Playboy Bunny, and skull tattoos - I've ruled them too. That and the dream I had this morning with Isaac Hayes turning the neighborhood into a gang lead me into an obsession with street gangs. That ended quickly because gangs really don't post much on the internet. Or I just don't know how to search this topic.

This tattoo business leads me to my next question. WHAT THE SHABANGBANG IS GOING ON WITH ME? I wanted a pimp ride. I wanted locks. I wanted bling bling Nike Shox. I got all of those things and now I want a tattoo. I didn't want a 23 year old boyfriend, but I have one. How the shabangbang did that happen? I really don't know. For the love of everything good and right, I like him too. He's not an egotistical, lying, selfish jackass like all the other men. And for everything bad and evil, I hope him and his father never read this. I met his late 30's something year old father and he asked me my age. I said, "." I'm proud of my age. Why would I lie? I knew he already knew my age because Nike already told me that he told his father my age. Gosh, Nike, tell everything why don't you. We will call the 23 year old, Nike, as in Michael Jordan's jersey number as a Bull.

Then there's that baby fever thing too. I can't even take care of Ciara good. Here. Just read this. Andy Rooney's Turning 30 My thinking is all messed up. Penicillin, ibuprofen, metformin, and iron.

Turning 30 by Andy Rooney
This is for all you girls 30 years and over....and for those who are turning 30, and for those who are scared of moving into their 30's! This was written by Andy Rooney from CBS 60 Minutes Andy Rooney says: As I grow in age, I value women who are over 30 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 30 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What are you thinking?". She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 30 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it's usually something more interesting. A woman over 30 knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of 30 give a damn what you might think about her or what she's doing. Women over 30 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it. A woman over 30 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. Women over 30 couldn't care less if you're attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won't betray her. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 30 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one! You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free." Here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire Pig, just to get a little sausage.

See! That's why I like you, Carmen.

Excellent post! I am going to send Andy's quote to all of my friends who are around and about my age.

I am going to print it, so I can look at it every time I feel upset. Because overall, I do feel very positively about who I am at this age. I DO love who I am and I don't care what most people think. But you know...we all have them days when...

Thanks, girl.

I shared this with two co-workers one turned 30 last year and has everything blooming for her. The other is an extremely cultured lady about 35 who can talk the talk with anybody. At my age I find myself doing what I want to do. All the silly things that I wanted to do in my early 20s but couldn't afford to do or didn't do because I was afraid of what the people would say. To the devil what the people say.

There's nothing wrong with a tattoo, I have one for now. I want another one but can't figure out what I want to get so if you see any good ones let me know.

I had to give up on crochet and move on to knitting because I kept having an extra piece of yarn hanging out off to the side lol. I don't think I was sewing into the stitches right. So... whenever I FINALLY finish sewing this hat that I picked out I'll post a pic.

Ok C you really went and did it. 1st the tatto thang....gurhl DO IT!!! I have 1(black rose w/ falling petal) and crazy as it may sound, I want anotha. When I was in my mid 20's I was feelin' this way. However, I have been told that I was an 'ole soul. Now at 33, oh my goodness, good 'ole Andy, hit the nail right on the proverbial head.

You are the best for posting this.

For the love of posting my life on the internet and having my blog as my home page, Nike said, "I read your blog. You named me NIKE."

Girl you are too funny. Being over 30, this is the truth. Age brings wisdom and knowledge you only have to please you. I think I'll get my 5th tattoo this year hopefully for my birthday. Do you, b/c your peace and understanding are what's important.
