There's nothing I like to do more than spend a relaxing afternoon with friends, eating, drinking, and getting pierced. And no better place to do all of the above than Northampton, Mass. Miss H came in the room with me and shot these photos. I had my ears originally pierced years ago, but they were constantly getting infected every time I wore earrings and so I just stopped. This time I did it right and went to a professional piercer. I had my first two holes re-pierced in October and everything has been great since. I went back yesterday to finish the job. Really, I can't emphasize enough how much better it is to go the professional route and skip the piercing gun at the mall. You can hardly feel the needle and it's over in about a second. This of course, led to the drinking topic of what you should and should not pierce. I'm thinking I may go for a couple of more holes in the ears, but I wouldn't do anywhere else on my face. Going lower of course, is always

My two nieces have had some health issues lately. First E was admitted to the hospital with severe abdominal pain. She ended up with a five day stay. Then my other niece S spent twelve hours in the ER due to a pain in her side (no, it wasn't me). Not feeling up to par can really bring you down. So I am sending them both some well wishes here today and hopefully convincing them that there are worse things in life. There is 80's hair: Oh, and a couple of more things to add to the list: red shag carpet and wrist corsages. Rock me like a hurricane girls, but you sure are pretty in pink (and black). Hey - didn't you have a cat that got lost at one point. I think I see it. ADDENDUM - THOSE PICTURES ARE NOT OF ME. SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION. TO BE FAIR, I HAVE POSTED MY 80'S PIC BELOW:
A while back I did a post about super-gluing a Mickey Mouse figurine to my middle finger. This time I have somehow gotten a ring stuck on the same finger. And I can't get it off. I put the ring on yesterday afternoon. I knew I was going to have trouble as soon as I shoved it past my knuckle. My finger is starting to get a little sore from all the tugging and possibly a little swollen, which is obviously not helping matters. Doesn't the Universe realize I can't possibly drive to work in Boston without complete and total use of this finger? It is as necessary for the commute as is a tank of gas. How will I convey my true feelings to the "left hand turn from the right lane" folks I encounter every day? I cannot be mute for my commute! Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions on how to remove the ring 1) without removing my finger and 2) while keeping the ring intact I would greatly appreciate it.
