This is my personal blog, a journal of my life; my blog of pretty things (et cetera) is here. Twenty-three. Might as well be five.
I just moved to Portland, OR, so if you're a Portland-living person, say hi! New friends for a new city are much appreciated.

Last night I babysat Ella, Hayden, Addison and Joey so that Holli could go see Harry Potter. Ella is 5 or 6, Hayden is 4, Addison is 3 and Joey is 1. I let the girls brush my hair, which I haven’t done myself in months. We had a picnic (fake food), we had dinner (real chicken nuggets), we sang songs, we watched Curious George, we read bedtime stories.

Joey was playing with a My Little Pony and looked down at it, looked at me, looked at the pony again and then held it up next to my head and pointed at the pony and me, giggling with delight. Through baby burbles I ascertained that I looked like the pony. DAMN STRAIGHT I LOOK LIKE A MY LITTLE PONY! I made him high five me a few times for his astute observation.

I helped Ella read a book after the little girls went to bed. I enjoyed it a lot, which made me think for a second, “huh, maybe I should teach…” and then I decided that no, that’s still not for me. I just like helping Ella because she’s my cousin’s kid, I think. Maybe.

I found a different one! There are so many places on the internet to make My Little Ponies.

I tried giving it a mermaid tail but it turned into a disaster, and then I remembered that the mermaid part is more about the hair. (Actually, the lion part and the MLP part are also about the hair… I am a simple woman with simple dreams.)
But look at my cutie mark. I’m actually getting that tattooed on my body. Oh yes.

But not an actual ass tattoo, like, a lower-hip-kind-of-butt place. I’m not sure how to explain the place, but I could pull down my pants and show it to you without revealing crack. It’s not actual cheek, but it’s definitely actually the right place for a MLP stamp and I’d be able to see it.
Yes, I had a serious conversation with Leslie about this. We also discussed how I should do it in pony colors. I’m thinking I like purple.

Tara and I are getting tattoos this summer to commemorate our time together. (D’awwww.) So this is the Baskerville italic ampersand, the most beautiful ampersand of all ampersands. The Indy’s body font is Baskerville mostly because of this ampersand (but I mean the whole font is beautiful but I meannnnn) and Tara and I agreed immediately upon that decision, so this just makes a whole lot of sense.
Leslie says I should get it on my butt because I’m an “editor pony.” And you know how I love looking like a My Little Pony…
Seriously though I haven’t decided where to put it yet. I just know that it’s happening.

About to be the prettiest pony. I’m already wearing half a dozen pieces and can’t wait for these to be dry enough to put in! I did the fade on a clip so it’ll last longer, it’s gorgeous.

On my way to achieving my life goal of looking like a My Little Pony.
Currently have lavender, blonde & aqua/seafoam added in, going to throw some darker blue in there eventually.
As Leslie said, now I just need something cute tattooed on my ass. BUT WHAT KIND OF MLP AM I? WHAT KIND OF ASS TATTOO SHOULD I HAVE?
