How American society treats piercings, especially facial piercings, is bizarre and amazing to me. Today someone said to me "you are such a beautiful girl, I can't believe you done went and put all them holes in your face. I got a sister-in-law what done that, and now she's covered with scars. You's just so beautiful, I can't believe you done that." Good job, bitch. Way to mask your cheap stab at me with a fake copliment. And, since I'm at work all I can do it tell her it's a personal decision, when all I want to do is tell her it's none of her god-damn business what I do with my face, and if she really thinks I'm so beautiful then she wouldn't make such a shitty comment. Oh, and at least I still have all my teeth, bitch.

I can't really help that I love my piercings and I love my face, and I'm very happy with myself, so I suppose that is all that matters. And, also, you gotta expect a little criticism, but it's my blog, I can bitch if I want. I also want to take a little time to dispell a myth, although anyone who would read this probably has/ knows about piercings, anyway. If you have a facial piercing, or stretched lobes, you are not in constant pain. I don't know how many times people have asked me if I'm hurting. Do you people really think that, or is that the most clever remark they can come up with? Yes, I love my piercings so much that I live in pain every day of my life so that I can have them. No, actually, I just love to be in pain, I'm sadistic like that. That's why I have all the piercings, I love pain. The bigger my lobes get, the more pain I can be in. Bring it!!! I just want to tell them how rediculous they look in a nascar t-shirt, cut-off shorts and leather sandals with velcro; but I try not to be a rude bitch for no reason, so I keep to myself.

P.S. I love the Duggars, I don't care how strange they are. I could watch their show all day. I just love it when Michele talks, she's so awesome. Even though I swear like a sailor and pretty much have nothing in common with any of them, I want to be her friend.

Sall Hansen Nail Art Pen

Two words can describe this- Hot Garbage!!! I bought one, thinking it would be awesome for doing designs on my nails. When you use it over another nail polish, it beads up and does not stay where you put it, so you can't really draw any lines or do anything like what it shows on the package. If you use it on top of your natural nails it works fine, so if you get the white one it would be awesome for french manicures, but that's about it. I got the black one, and it's probably going in the trash. Normally the pens cost about $8, but they were on sale and I had a coupon so mine was like $4. Don't waste your money, ladies.

Mal Occhio

The Evil Eye. Envy. For those who are unfamiliar with the evil eye, or mal occhio, it's basically when someone knowingly or unknowningly curses you through jealousy. When they look on you, or something that you have, with envy, they place a curse on you. Different cultures have different methods and traditions of protection against the evil eye. Many Italians wear an amulet in the shape of a ram's horn called a cornicello. More common in Muslim and Jewish cultures is a symbol called a Hamsa or Khamsa, which is in the shape of a hand with an eye in the center. This symbol predates most religions and is believe to mean that five fingers in the evil eye will blind it. Kabbalists wear a red string around their left wrist to ward off the evil eye. My latest craft project was a cornicello pendant and necklace. I don't know if it can really be called a project, since it took about five minutes, but I'm posting a picture of it.


Things I am saying goodbye to-
  1. A tiny apartment
  2. Neighbors that killed my cat
  3. Holes in the walls
  4. Boring white-ness all around
  5. A douchebag of a landlord
  6. Too much stuff, and not enough places to put it all
  7. Having someone else living on the other side of the wall
  8. Having everything broken, and never being fixed
  9. The oldest electric stove in existence
  10. An oven that doesn't work properly
  11. Carpet. FUCK CARPET.
  12. Window air conditioning
  13. Not having any outlets in the bathroom. Who the fuck builds a house where you can't plug anything in in the bathroom?
  14. Shitty wiring. I'm tired of going through a pack of lightbulbs every week. I'm tired of having to go out back and flip the breaker all the time.
  15. Washing all of the dishes by hand
  16. Not having a place for my little pup to run and play
  17. Not being able to go outside and relax
  18. Having a leaky toilet
  19. Carpet. I hate you, carpet.
  20. Having a living room/ kitchen/ dining room that is all one room
Can you tell I am happy to be a-movin'? We have a roommate, but we are paying the same amount of rent for a three bedroom house with 1.5 baths and a full basement that we paid for our two bedroom, one bath duplex. We have a fenced, walkout back yard, plenty of places for plants, a utility room, a dishwasher, a garage, and a huge shade tree in the front yard. Lovesit.
