Still has to be an official Mehrathon for the new entries to be called off, right? We had COVID vaccine reactions and an emergency vet visit over the weekend so I didn’t make it to the shop after all for mine
@ChadP@gr8mick1@jlnelson8814@Thumperchick they are talking about for new people. It isn’t open all the time for new people so if anyone else is wanting to get a tattoo to get free IRKs, they need to verify it is still open.
I’ll be back later this evening. I have an appointment for a tattoo at 5:30. The tattoo shop lady was confused by everything I said on the phone, so I’m going to have to explain the tattoo and meh while there. Today being a Joe-athon will probably make things a little stranger, but IDC.
@remo28@sammydog01 my artist asked but more in a conversation starting way than a test I needed to pass before she would proceed way. I told her that it was about science, experimentation, failure, imperfection, and also a symbol related to a community I’m part of. So I guess I did explain, but it didn’t feel like I was being tested.
I did omit that it was for a lifetime supply of mystery boxes. That part just seemed weird to explain.
I bet they hear some meaningful stories that way. And also maybe their share of “I lost a bet” as well.
So I already had the pirate fish. I just added meh to it with some speech bubbles. The wife of the tattoo artist was more interested in the meaning of the pirate fish (flying spaghetti monster reference) that I never said what the meh was about. It’s got the fake skin stuff covering it now. It will look cleaner once that comes off.
@thumperchick I already bought an irk this morning. So I don’t expect anything to change. I just wanted to make sure I shared the pic before the cut off closes. Since I saw the irk for sale I figured I’d try just in case something happened and I didn’t end up getting the tattoo tonight.
@j2@remo28 I’ve thought about at least getting a subscription for the weekend paper, but never pulled the trigger. I like reading on paper. When I do pick up a physical book to read, I’m like “Ahhh, my eyes, they feel better.”
It’s probably a good time for me to mention or even rant about epistemology and metaphysics and origins of language and the meaning of meaning and what is reality anyway and really is a crutch and a crutch is a form of reality
And all that great stuff. and throw in a little math and a little existentialism and a little ontological heuristics and what have you
I don’t have the energy to be properly long winded tonight
Wait- today was the last day to get in? I was not clued in to this little tidbit of information! I can’t get mine until after my second vaccination shot, which is in two weeks. I am too vulnerable to risk it. Have I missed out again?
@thumperchick and @chadp are the people with the “say”, I think.
They haven’t spoken about whether the “get a tat, get an IRK” closes today for the time being, or is still available for a while. .
They did offer “thru today”.
The tat supposedly has to be some design officially from meh.
@ChadP@f00l@Thumperchick All I can do is hope they’ll let me slide. I have emphysema, diabetes and right now I am on meds that screw with my immune system as well. Hell, I was just in the hospital with a collapsed lung in February. I can’t be in close quarters with other humanoids until I’m fully vaccinated. Can I catch a break? Pretty please?
@er1c@f00l@sammydog01 I was there when they first opened it on their 4th birthday. I couldn’t do it then because we were moving and I was broke. The next time it was open, none of the tattoo shops were open where I lived because of the pandemic. This time, I said I could do it once I was vaccinated, and I missed that there was a set deadline already. I could have gotten a tat in a couple of weeks. So what the fuck ever. I don’t need you lecturing me.
@er1c@f00l@Pony@sammydog01 on the off chance this ever gets reopened and anyone remembers can someone tag me please? Thanks… Missed it was open this time. Until too late.
Also, is it ok to get the tattoo on my butt? Obviously won’t show my butt crack on proof photos… But will meh accept butt cheek photos? I just think it would be funny to be able to say I get stuff sent to me in exchange for posting pictures of my butt online.
@sammydog01 Why on earth are you dumping on @Pony? She has made clear all along what is going on with her and her constraints. Waiting to be vaccinated and then waiting the two weeks after the second shot before doing anything risky makes a heck of a lot of sense. Risking getting covid over a tattoo does not. Dumping on her because of that makes even less sense.
@f00l@Kidsandliz@sammydog01 Can we just stop, please. I don’t need to see anymore arguing about how annoying I am. Okay? Kidsandliz, I appreciate you standing up for me, you’re a star. But lets all please just drop it?
