"repeatedly lifted my shirt to trace my ouroboros tattoo "

Man, I didn't even know anyone else even in Ottawa even knew what a Ouroboros was, let alone shared the tattoo.

I fear we must battle at dawn on the parliament steps...maybe by the eternal flame, that would be arty and classy, in addition to providing a tourist spectacle to boost the local economy.

If style of writing is equivalent to tone of voice, then you're sounding much better! It's good to see you starting to get back to normal again.

Something I used to do as a ritual after every break-up - and God knows I went through some doozies - was to watch The Maltese Falcon. Really, it's the best break-up movie ever made, because at the end when Bogie could easily take the fall for the double-crossing dame that he loves, he turns around and sells her up the river instead. THAT'S SO GREAT.

So my advice: Find the chick version of that.

AJ: Hey, now there's three of us! Kate Barry (an Ottawa-based artist) has one as well, on her calf.

Patti: It's nice to have had a few normalesque days in a row, I gotta say.

Sloth: Maybe I'll just start with The Maltese Falcon. Been a while since I've seen it but I really liked it. If I find the chick version, I'll let you know.
