HUMP DAY HAIKU CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

we here at I JUST WANT THE TATTOO regret to report that the wednesday series, HUMP DAY HAIKU, has been canceled until further notice. with IM Brasil looming, our fearless leader is a bit frazzled. one second she's excited, the next she's indifferent, and the next she's FREAKING THE FUCK OUT, and so goes the taper phase. with that said, it's just not within her brain capacity to function in the 5-7-5 haiku format.

rest assured that there will be more posts before she departs for south of the equator, but the haiku will not be among them. in the meantime, please take a look at other features on the blog. for instance, click on the "word of the day" and learn another piece of valuable Portuguese vocabulary. and be sure to get your vote in soon on where she'll get her tattoo. as this goes to press, it's a close race between the calf and the butt cheek!!

peace out.

hey for me, I would love it on your butt cheek, that way when we meet I get to see your butt. However, If you are game enough to show me your butt maybe you will do it without a Tattoo, soooo get that sucker on your arm so when people pass you in a race then they can get really intimidated when about 2 seconds later it sinks in that it's an Iron Man tattoo. Then you can burn past them in all your glory. Be excited, but don't panic.

"it's a close race between the calf and the butt cheek"

Funny, when I first read this sentance, I read it as "between the butt cheek(s)". Cause...well..that would have been kinda awkward.

Let us know when you start having those wacky IM dreams that you have not set up your transition area yet and everyone is headed to the swim start or you get to your bike and all you brought with is a Schwinn "Pea Picker" Sting Ray.

Kim sent me over and I'm glad she did. If I'd had known you were doing Rage would would have a blogger meet up.

As it stands now, you've made Brazil something to think about.

Can't wait for the RR.

Enjoy your time there. From what I've been reading, you are so READY!

Have a great race!
