rara avis, it means "rare bird" in Latin.

I just received it today, it's done by Shawn at Club Tattoo in Tempe, Arizona.  It was a rather spur of the moment idea, something I always told myself I wouldn't do in the case of a tattoo, but I love it all the same.

crazy! i've been holding onto that same phrase for years and have always thought about getting it tattooed. looks great.

here are a couple of mine...pardon the weird quality. its hard to get good pics of myself at that angle.

this is about two and a half years old, on my right shoulder blade.

this is on my left hip, its an extension of an older tattoo, which you cant really see in the pics because its on the back of my left hip.

i guess you can see a bit of the old tat in that last pic. its a rose, drawn by a friend. ive actually been seriously considering getting the big one on my hip and the old rose removed. it isnt finished, it's supposed to continue up to wear my bra sits, with another large rose and more leafy, floral-y things. i keep waffling back and forth between absolutely hating it and wanting to finish it. i think it the long run ill end up getting the newer ink totally removed and having the old rose lightened up enough to cover it up with something that only sits on the back of my hip.

also, "dum spiro, spero" is Latin for "while i breathe, i hope"

i'm planning for a new tattoo and was going through this thread for some inspiration. jrsloane, i absolutely love that big one on your hip. i think you should opt for finishing it instead of removing it. it's gorgeous. and i'm not just saying that, i'm really picky with tattoos and think a lot out there are bad but yours is awesome.

i'd take old or new.

unfortunately, i know my local libraries have done the switch since i worked there in high school and never once saw a date/name card.

it's a good idea though. keep 'em coming.

i have a bit of a library obsession and would love to get my hands on those old-fashioned check-out cards and pockets found in the back of books. i'm not sure if they've got a name but does anyone know where i might them? i've searched ebay but i can't find what i'm looking for. any other ideas?

Hello everyone!

I'm Jessica, just turned 24, from Ontario, Canada. I live in a very boring suburb just outside Toronto and am paying my dues as a reporter for an independent newspaper there. Eventually, I'd like to make a living writing novels.

I'm a TV addict. While The Office (US version) is my absolute favourite, I also waste my time watching Heroes, Gilmore Girls, all CSIs, Criminal Minds, Prison Break, ER and much much more. Like I said, I'm an addict.

I'm a book collector with shelves full of titles I've yet to read. I love Douglas Coupland, Harry Potter, classic children's literature, 1984, The Robber Bride, To Kill a Mockingbird, Stephen King and crappy horror paperbacks.

My music tastes run mostly indie rock but I love finding new music and love making mixes for other people. Some of the stuff I'm listening to includes Regina Spektor, Joanna Newsom, the White Stripes, the Decemberists, Tegan and Sara, Death Cab for Cutie, cheesy 90's one hit wonders, 80's music, and the occasional guilty pleasure I'd rather not admit to publicly.

I'm a big movie fan. Anything horror is fantastic, even if it's really awful. Some favourites include High Fidelity, Reality Bites, Pet Semetary, Harry Potter, Annie, Empire Records. I also love stupid comedies like 40-Year-Old Virgin and Wedding Crashers.

As for crafts, I'm sort of a procrastinator. I buy lots and lots of supplies and rarely complete anything. But I'd love to have a penpal to make stuff for. Paper crafts and handbag making are what I usually do.

And just to let any potential penpals know, I'm a computer nerd. I play computer games. I've come to a point in my life where I'm no longer shamed to admit it.

So that's me, in short. I don't want to be picky about a penpal but I'd prefer someone who is single (my love life is nonexistent and I'd love someone who can relate or at least share dating horror stories) and has no children (I'm so far from having kids, I just can't relate).

OK, if there's someone out there who thinks I'd make a decent penpal, just PM me.

May 24: got one penpal, still open for more Smiley
