some good things about being back 'home'

this is more to convince myself than anything.

-to be able to sleep in my own bed for the first time in 7 days.
-the legal drinking age is 19: to celebrate this wonderful aspect of canadian liberalness, i had myself a little detour to the liquor store yesterday before heading back to my place -- to buy chartreuse for me & a 4-pack of flavoured vodka 'coolers' for my sister as part of her belated birthday present (i personally think drinking alcopops is cheating, but that was what she'd asked for).
-being at home means i don't have to be on my feet all day & my blisters can have some time to heal.
-after standing around in many, many, new york subway stations, the perpetually backed up basement toilet doesn't smell that unbearable.
-my parents haven't said anything about my tattoo... (yes, i've got a scanner working finally, & no, it didn't hurt that much after maybe the first five minutes.) i got it done at kingdom tattoos the night/morning before i was due to leave, kinda as a permanant souvenier; i got to choose music to get tattooed by & now the cure's bloodflowers is inextricably linked in my mind with that buzzing needle-noise...
