I love the idea of body painting at Mardi Gras. Awesome goal! Not so much on the absinthe, I don't like having the risk of brain damage, but hey, who am I to tell someone else no? I hope it's awesome when it happens.

Pi, nice to meet a fellow Manowar fan. I really really want another tattoo, something more interesting and complicated than what I have now. It's just a simple line drawing a few inches wide. I want something that is a little more detailed and has more visual impact.
