I just realized now I've been here just around two months. It seems much shorter than that. Now that everyone at the shop's settled in, I think it's time to have a somewhat belated opening party. Tentatively, I'm setting it for the first weekend in May. If anyone out there has a venue they'd like to offer up, or if someone would like to cater or provide music, it would be most appreciated. Beyond that, everyone is invited (details will be updated on the shop's website) with a donation.

On that same note, to thank Orange County for all the business we've gotten already in the last eight weeks, on April 27, we'll be doing tattoos by donation. We'll have a set sheet of flash, and you can get any one of them in any size and color, anywhere, and pay whatever you'd like. We haven't decided yet on what charities to put the money to, preferably something local, so if anyone has recommendations please let me know.

It's difficult being a designer who does custom orders. Someone wants me to make their wedding dress, and all their ideas are ... well, a bit hideous. This woman wants to look like a cupcake made of tulle on her special day. Hoop skirts should not be in weddings. I wonder if there's a nice way to say "no, I will not make this because then people will know I made it and my reputation will be ruined". Probably not.

Well, I've been bothered by a few people to come on here. Apparently it's the best way to communicate with other citizens of Orange County. As though I can't just go down to a bar and meet people there. Doesn't anyone talk face to face anymore? Too much technology, I say.

I often wonder why I watch Ink Master. It always ends up giving me a headache.

All those young couples on House Hunters always annoy the crap out of me. It's always like these twenty four year olds who have been married for a year and want a house with three bedrooms and three bathrooms even though they don't plan on starting a family right away and the kitchen or yard is always too small and they get upset if the master bedroom doesn't have a bathroom. The fixtures are always wrong and the girl ends up getting emotional over something.

And it's even worse on the International ones cause no one ever seems to realize that apartments in other countries are usually smaller.

This is why Mickey shouldn't leave me alone. I end up watching HGTV at two in the morning and rant about house hunting shows.

If it wasn't Buzzfeed, I'd never know what to feed myself or how to make it. The expectation-vs-reality thing is still pretty prominent, but if it tastes good in the end I'm not going to complain. It's all the same in the end, anyway.

(For the record, broccoli-and-cheese stuffed potatoes are a lot of effort, but worth the time.)

I don't know who I'd say my best friend is here (as I'm not the sort of person to give people titles unless we have a legal reason to do so), but I'm really glad that they're not a Vicodin addicted asshole that I'm forced to rat out to a detective. Then I just feel guilty. Well. More guilty than usual.

Stupid dreams, I feel all weird and punch drunk after I have them, even though they're not that different from my daily life. Just more drama because of said asshole.

Well it's done. My last video of my bike trip from Puerto Rico to California is uploaded. I started with a lovely view of the ocean and finished with a lovely view of the sunsetting over an entirely different ocean. On this trip I interviewed a bloody gaggle of people. My favourite was the homeless chap under an overpass who spoke in riddles.

He never did tell me why a raven was like a writing desk...

So, this is Orange County. I've only ever been here once before, briefly, and I don't remember a lot about it. It seems like a good place. Everyone here is nice enough, but, people usually are when they're trying to make an impression on someone new.

Still, someone recommended I try out this Network, and, admittedly, as a new business owner it'd be foolish for me to pass up a chance to drum up some clientele. Please forgive the shameless promotion. My name is Edmond Dant├Ęs, and I recently opened up my tattoo shop, Monte Cristo, in Santa Ana. There are three of us there, and right now we're taking appointments and walk-ins. You can see our portfolios on our website, if you're interested. And I hope some of you are.

I can't really think of much more to say beyond that.
