Ugh! Don't feel like work today, but at least I finally got my sister to agree this morning to take me to get my first tattoo some weekend soon. <3 Very excited.

Just grease up the muffin tin real good and dump those suckers right in. If you wait until they're totally cool to take them out, you shouldn't have too much trouble.

Naps: I want all of them. The average person requires 8-9 hours of sleep to function normally, but I'm pretty sure I require somewhere around 11 or 12.

I have to find an opportunity to donate blood before I get another tattoo. I'd like to do that before the summer's over. I'd also like to get my nose pierced again, but I think I'll wait until Little Dude's old enough that he won't constantly try to yank a stud out of my face.

I definitely want one right now. Last night I dreamed that I went to Korea. I woke up feeling jet-lagged. :/

So, uh, I would not recommend reading this if you are prone to arachnophobia. It reminded me of something out of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

We happened to have exactly enough little paper cup things to make this batch. Which for some reason is an 11 count batch of muffins when the tins have 12 muffin holes.../shrug/

I didn't wait long enough for my muffin to cool before ripping it from the paper, so I gnawed on the paper to get the bits of muffin off it.

I used to be the person who could go to sleep at like..12am and wake up at 7 or 8 and be bright sunshiny. Now I feel like I am going to fall over when I sleep in until 10. STOP YAWNING SELF. IT'S ALMOST 1 GODDAMN IT.

Somehow I imagine having lots of piercings and a new babeh as being particularly difficult. Like the first episode of Rugrats where Tommy keeps pulling on his mothers dangly earrings while she's on the phone.

Wouldn't nose rings technically be small enough for a baby to swallow? Like if he did yank it out he could promptly shove it down and you'd have something fun to look for in his poops.






UPDATE BECAUSE I FORGET TO SAY STUFF SOMETIMES OKIE DOKI LOKI:
Boyfriends dad left me $20 last night for Boyfriend and I to grab dinner (boyfriend wasn't home yet) and so we got Chinese take-away. Boyfriend got a buttload of sweet and sour chicken and I got pepper steak. We had quite a bit of the $20 left over but his dad told Boyfriend to keep it, Boyfriend left me a $5 for me to go grab lunch somewhere if I wanted to. The left over pepper steak wasn't very filling, it was less then 5oz of the entree and not even 1/4 cup of rice was left :| but there's a Mcdonalds about 15 minutes down the street.

That's my other concern; I lost a few when they got pulled out while I was toweling off after a shower or something like that, so it probably wouldn't be that hard for him to pull it off and stick it in his mouth before I wrestled it away from him.

You can't wear any body jewelry when giving birth, on the grounds that if you wind up getting a c-section (which happened with me, so there you go), there's a chance the jewelry will redirect the electrical current from the electrocautery device they use and it will burn you. I had to take my stud out, didn't have a filler for it, and the hole closed while I was in the hospital. If I wind up getting it pierced again, I'll make sure to have a couple of retainers on hand.

Dude I can't even keep track of where all my hair elastics go. I can't imagine keeping track of something as small as a nose stud. That's like the iPod Shuffle of body jewelry-once you lose track of it, it's gone forever.

The holes can close up that quickly? When I was itty bitty (10) I got my ears pierced the first time and I was too afraid to ever take the studs out. I was convinced that even 6 months later it was painful to remove them. So once my mother finally made me take them out and put new ones in I was in tears and absolutely convinced that it was horrifically painful. One night one of them fell out so I took out the other and eventually the holes closed up.

I was around 13 before I finally got them redone. Which is fine because the first time the dumb broad doing the piercing did it so they weren't even.

It varies from person to person, but yeah, it can. I was in the hospital for five days and spent another week at my mom's house before we went home; by the time we were at our own house I wasn't able to put the stud back in. Not like it was a day or two, but then some people are able to keep their piercings out indefinitely and then just pop 'em back in.

I don't wear much jewelry because of my nickel allergy. I know of one website that sells nickel-free items but their jewelry section is not that large. I do need a new belt though...

I gave two holes in each earand my top left one closes up really fast. The rest are okay but that one doesn't want to stay open. It's kind of annoying.

I'm allergic to nickel too, but wokring in jewellery shops has set me up with a massive collection of silver, gold, pewter and other nickel-free jewellery. And yah, I'm still in the habit of always having my earrings in. When I last got them recovered in 2010, the piercer told me to keep earrings in at all times for a year afterward. The habit stuck, so I'll usually keep in sleepers or such for a week, or switch between fancy earrings for the day and little studs when I go to bed. I'm debating on piercing my cartilage this summer, but since I got my bobbed haircut, you don't generally see my ears compared to when I could pull it back.
