Shouldn't you... NOT get a tattoo while pregnant? Isn't it one of those safety risk things?

:crazy:

It's not one of the risks doctors/midwives/people push, anyway. I imagine you're at some risk of infection if you get it somewhere sketchy, but I don't think the inks will do anything to a fetus.

Yeah, it's generally a bad idea to give yourself lots of puncture wounds while pregnant. Infection is always a possibility with tattoos - probably more so if you're not smart enough to avoid getting one while pregnant. ;)

And it is lots of puncture wounds. I did the arithmetic and worked out that for my roughly 4" diameter tattoo, it took comfortably in excess of two million stabs to get the ink in. And that was a single-colour piece. Anything with shading is gonna be more.

When my wife was pregnant, they told her to stop coloring her hair.

Tonight was the lowest turnout of kids I have had in the eleven years I have lived here.

Had a very weird request come in from the Computer Science department this evening. They wanted to know if a particular instructor has been active in his own course sites... not, as more regularly, because someone was checking up on his teaching, but because he isn't returning calls or emails from his students or the department, and since he teaches only online they're worried that he might be dead or something.

They said he hasn't responded for well over a month, and he showed some account activity thirteen days ago, so... I guess he just doesn't like returning calls or something. Weird though.

Even weirder is that the department has no provision for regular contact with their own faculty. I think I may recommend to the faculty senate that they instigate some "touch base periodically" policy, just to avoid such situations. :crazy:

I think I'm gonna do NaNoWriMo this year. Aiming much lower though, as I haven't written so much as a short story since high school.

In related news, I have no idea where to start.Thinkin' murder most foul. That always works. =P

Going to do the NaGaDeMon thing rather that NaNoWriMo. NaNo has kicked me in the shins every time I've tried. NaGa might be more achievable for me.
