I feel so Seattle.  
I was getting off the bus on my way home from work, and over the course of five seconds, I went from, "La la la, must cross the street, boy, my bookbag is heavy, la la la" to "Hey, I'm going to get a nose ring--RIGHT NOW!" I literally swerved, heading over to the conveniently placed tattoo and piercing parlor a block from my house and went in and signed a piece of paper and had a guy named J.J. shove a sharp piece of metal through my nose. It's actually a stud, not a ring. It's awesome.

I'd been thinking about getting one for years, but hadn't quite committed to the idea.

It must be spring.

Way to go! It's such a great feeling to get a piercing. I even like the pain.

Er...
Anna S.: seattleeliade on May 12th, 2005 04:34 am (UTC)
Yes! I liked the pain too. We are special people.

*g*

God, I'm not even allowed more than two earrings in each ear where I work. Never mind facial piercings.

::is jealous::
Anna S.: byzantiumeliade on May 12th, 2005 04:42 am (UTC)
Gah. I'm sorry. I hate places when they do that! :(

Could you get some, er, secret piercings, though? *g*

spring, definitely
dude, I think you're contagious - I suddenly really, really want to get my lip pierced.

That is the awesomest thing I've heard all day.
Anna S.eliade on May 12th, 2005 04:43 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D I'm relishing the soreness now...

That has got to be so cute on you!

Ow. But still! Pictures!!!
Anna S.: angeleliade on May 12th, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
Ow.

At least it was *through* the nose and not *up* the nose. Because things that go up = not good.

Pictures!!!

Someday--another forty pounds and maybe I'll be ready. (It's such a ego thing. Or a pride thing. My pridego should lose 40 pounds.)

Cool :)

I worked on a show where the wardrobe mistress had a gold ring in her nose. It was mesmerizing.
Anna S.eliade on May 12th, 2005 05:11 pm (UTC)
I will mesmerize you...and then kill you with my mind! But all in fun.

Someday you'll need to stand tall again: Emellaemella on May 12th, 2005 04:59 am (UTC)
OMG lol

That's too funny. I mean, like I know I'm impulsive, but wow. Hee! That's so cool though.

I wanted a nose ring when I was little, like until I was 14, I still think they're cool, but I just don't think I could deal with the pain, and I would be afraid of the hole getting infected.

I've had my ears peirced twice and both times they got infected, so I'm still kinda hesitant on getting the ears done.

That's cool though, good for you and I hope you look awesome. :D
Anna S.eliade on May 12th, 2005 05:11 pm (UTC)

It's pretty cool--and it really looks as if I've had it for a while, I think. I was worried it wouldn't go with my glasses, but I think it does!
the_shoshannathe_shoshanna on May 12th, 2005 05:12 am (UTC)
It looked very cool! But you haven't emailed me, hint hint . . . I will check email tomorrow morning.
Anna S.eliade on May 12th, 2005 01:51 pm (UTC)
I did e-mail you! *worries* I forwarded Sandy a copy of it and will try to get you guys by phone.

do you want orcs? because this is how you get orcs: Connor Tonguekita0610 on May 12th, 2005 05:19 am (UTC)
Terribly cool.

Your icon is licking his lips at me. Or is he simply your puppet and you are licking your lips at me? I lick you back. Mmm hmm.

Incredibly cool!

Don't get a cold. I have two and managed to heal both of them separately with two separate colds. That was THE SUCK. Also, you don't realize how much you bonk your nose until you get it pierced and it starts letting you know every time you bonk it.

Brilliant! I did the same thing with my piercings. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut! :-)

Make sure you look after it now. The best thing for cleaning it is a home made sterilised salt solution.

I'm using that! The piercer gave me some. He was awesome.

The worst part? You can be messing with your piercing in public and look like your picking your nose.

Exactly. The little hook inside sometimes rotates down and hangs there in a disturbing fashion. I haven't quite figured out how to keep it consistently "up" yet. ;)
torchflambeau on May 12th, 2005 07:37 am (UTC)
You are so cute! I mean, you were cute before, and I bet you're even cuter now. *mwah*
Anna S.eliade on May 12th, 2005 05:09 pm (UTC)
I am massively cute! (Hee.) As I've mentioned to others, I'll have to post a picture someday. Probably not now, but...in a while. :)
DD3dancingdragon3 on May 12th, 2005 09:17 am (UTC)
Congratulations! I love my nose ring. I go with a screw. I had a hoop for a while, but the screw is more comfortable. Oh, and about picking your nose, all the snot in that nostril will eventually (and conveniently) get tangled around the hook part of the screw. Makes for easier pickin's that way.

Grossed out yet? Wait until someone tells you the story of how their belly ring got infected and green pus...
