: I am, according to my kindle, 75% of the way
: through. It has been a struggle every step
: of the way. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's
: the total lack of humor. Perhaps it's my
: inability to connect with any character in
: any way. Perhaps I'm being beaten down by
: so much description. There's plenty of
: plot, but there's no dramatic tension
: whatsoever. I'm not sure. But I find that
: I read about ten pages or so and then put it
: down. Every evening.
: I've been thinking for some time of getting
: a tattoo. Since you guys know my religious
: convictions, I can share that my choice
: would be John 1:1 -- in the original Greek.
: Perhaps as a circle around my upper arm.
: I'll probably never get it, though.

: I'm about halfway through this and I'm
: enjoying it well enough. There's a bit of
: mystery surrounding Aritomo. There seems to
: be something of an academic mystery about
: the tattoos. Magnus has confirmed that
: Aritomo did his tattoo. The historian's
: tattoo sounds nice: two cranes in flight,
: wrapped around his arm.
: It's a nice idea of getting a tattoo: going
: to some old guy and talking to him about
: your life and letting him design you some
: unique tattoo. I am embroidering the text a
: little bit.
: I'd like to get a tattoo if I could come up
: with some image that was meaningful for me.
: It's much cheaper to get a tattoo here than
: in the U.S.
