I'm the cure

New Year, New Resolutions.
I'm not sure I updated this blog at all in 2009.
It was a weird year. My relationship with Claire grew and evolved and is currently as strong as tungsten; my folks moved to NJ so they could be closer to Bob and I and on the whole things should have been great. That said... 2009 was a ballbreaker on every other front and I'm glad it's over.

My resolution this year was to dive into charcuterie. Three days into 2010 and I've already started. Claire and I are curing a duck breast, prosciutto style.

We'll see how it goes.

I don't want to get tattooed anymore. 

I just want to BE tattooed now. Finished. The whole kit-and-kaboodle done.  I've been getting tattooed for 19 years. I spent the first few years just getting little things here and there; foolishly taking up valuable real estate with dumb little trinkets that have since been removed and covered up instead of planning out larger pieces. No regrets of course- but man I wish I would have just knuckled down when I was younger and took care of the big spots- ribs, inner thighs- that now need to be filled in.

Despite the culture of LA/Miami Inked- where every tattoo has a story and they never hurt... this stuff kills. Seriously. Not just the tattooing, but the healing.

Note to self- put it in your will that if you get in a coma you want Bruehl to come in and finish everything up.
