my mom apparently is still the boss of me

Monday, May 11, 2009

another weekend has come and gone, another monday is upon us and i'm already yearning for the weekend.

let's hope this week is a quick one.


friday night i stayed in and watched
role models with the klutz, georgia peach and nameless like one big happy family. literally - georgia peach, nameless, their dog wrigley and i all shared a couch. comfy.

saturday evening my friends matt and sean had a open house at their newly acquired condo in the detroit-shoreway neighborhood -
the painter's lofts to be exact. i had seen pictures of the condo but they didn't do the space justice, it was so friggin' cool. i want to buy a place desperately, and my goal is to own in 2010 so maybe i'll be their neighbor someday - watch out guys.

by all accounts the party was a success and i left there a sweaty mess from dancing my ass off to the awesomely fun DJ they hired. good times, good times.

sunday obviously was mother's day so i rolled out of bed and headed to canton for brunch with my mom and family at glenmoor CC then we all went to see star trek which was SO GOOD.

i said it earlier on twitter, but jj abrams is my hero.

my mom asked for one thing from me for mother's day, one little thing. and aside from the super cute shirt i got her i have to take to my blog to comply with her other mother's day request. see below.

i, your eldest daughter alexa, does solemnly swear that i will never get another tattoo - if i ever do you have every right to cut me off financially - bye bye paid cellphone and inheritance. and in getting a fourth tattoo i will not only be breaking your wishes but will be breaking your heart. no matter how sweet tattoos are and how much i love them i will never get another tattoo, ever.

there mom -you happy now?

it's in writing and has been documented publicly here on the plum.

happy mother's day, i love you.

  1. the way around this is....does adding to existing tattoos count? Because ive done that....I count it as 1 together.

    those condos are fancy schmancy!

  2. I'm going to get you hammered and talk you into getting a tattoo. It is my new life goal.

    Do you have a Plum tattoo yet?

  3. I REALLY do appreciate it Alexa but I need a 'signed and corrected' copy, ha. So what is with the 'fourth' tattoo statement? Do you have a third tattoo I don't know about? OR....is this a 'loophole' for you to still be able to get that third one you want? You know I always pay attention to details. XOXO

  4. Narm, you need to change your life goal so it doesn't include my daughter, ha. I would personally hunt you down.

  6. mom and jenna - i'm counting my tattoo on my wrist as two cause technically mom had to deal with it twice, the first version and then the second bigger version ya know? two separate tattoos.

    narm - i think a plum tattoo would be AMAZING.

  7. JJ Abrams is my hero, too. Star Trek was great. But so is Lost, and so was Cloverfield...

  8. Ha ha ha. What a clever method by your mom. I'm totally going to use this trick on my kids when I have them and they have their own blogs and tattoos.

  9. yeah. uhm. i'd be one helluva disappointment to my mama cuz there just ain't NO WAY I'd be able to commit to never getting inked again.

    i mean. i have the next 2 tat designs already worked out.

  10. I think you should get a picture of me tattooed on your arm - so when you miss me, there I am!

    I am SURE that can be an exception!

    Or maybe a picture of Phil - we all know how much you love that cat!

  11. I would never sign that contract.

    too much legalese.

  12. That'd be pretty difficult if I'm loving the tatoos! I wanna have a tattoo but I'm pretty much a wimp.

  22. Love JJ Abrahms. If he filmed paint drying, I would watch.

  23. Damn woman...that is a big public promise.

  24. I thought my mom would freak out when I told her I wanted one, instead she went with me to pick it out.

    So does the whole no tattoo thing count if its in a place where your mom can't see it?

    PS I love that your mom threatened Narm. LOL.

  25. I love that your mom comments on your blog. That's awesome.

    Also, once again, it sounds like you had an amazing weekend!

  26. Your moms comment is so cute. my mom is still not happy with my tattoo that I got like over 10 years ago. Ha! Moms are so cute.

    I loved Role Models. Thought it was hilarious.

  29. A friend of mine from high school was one of the screen writers for Role Model. Well, let me rephrase ... we were pretty good friends in high school ... I didn't talk to him after we graduated ... until we were re-friended on Facebook sometime last year. Use the term Friends lightly. =)

  30. PHIL!!!! Or maybe just the tribal symbol for Ka-Ka Paws?

  31. Now that's a promise I could never make! You are a better daughter than I!
