Four before midnight

To keep up my streak I need to write four posts before midnight.

Fortunately, I have several things I could write about.

In the total trivia category:

I had a bar inserted into my ear. Why, you may ask? Well, why not. I don't have a good reason--mid-life crisis, maybe. A fear of becoming too normal. I mentioned in the 36 things about me post that I had suddenly had the need to get a piercing in my ear two years ago. I wanted this, but chickened out and basically just got the one at the back of the ear. From posts and blogs I've skimmed piercing (and tattooing) can become an addiction. Once the novelty of one wears off, you think, I need another. I just kept coming back to the idea and so have done it.

I suspect that it will not fit in with my new company's dress code, such as it is, but I can always wear my hair over it. So much for the neat up-do's I've been wearing, but I can always do that after work. I wanted to do this now because I figure it's going to take at least 6 weeks, possibly 8 to heal. After that I can leave them out at work functions or put in small rings or studs.

I'm pretty impressed with the picture as I took it myself with my camera phone while holding back my hair with the other hand.

Your ear bar is cool!

And I can't wait to show it to Ikuni. She wants her eyebrow pierced as soon as she can afford it. :-)

I wish my Mom had been as cool as you. When I got the basic done at 12 she was livid.
