Awww Zsuzsy! My little brother gave me his Canon Powershot S5, I'm really super excited to have such a nice camera compared to the piece of crap film camera I had. It's a stellar camera, and I'm going to teach myself the finer points of photography, I would love to be a photographer some day!
I spent a year and a half in my 20s as a "pink person" before I got tired of the regular ritual of pinking my hair and scrubbing the bathtub. My boyfriend at the time spent much time and effort pouring over a dictionary before announcing one night that he'd been on the hunt for the word for a pink-haired woman, ala blonde, brunette or redhead. His solution: fuschian.
I was sporting the bald hair for quite a bit there, Rookie Expert. At the urging of some of my female friends (which is odd to say since 90% of my friends are male) I am growing my hair out until after my wedding next May.
LOL they're 2g, I'm looking for a more painless way to stretch to that final point, the famous zero, and then I'm going to stop. I wear acrylic tapers right now because they're light, and if I lose them, they're not a huge loss (they cost about ten bucks less than metal tapers.)
The steel pinchers are the best way to go up to 0. When I went from 2 to 0 gauge I had to make the stretch over a few days because I couldn't get the pinscher to the middle on the first try. I want to say I was at 2's for at least 6 months or so. They were really bothering me because I like even set numbers, and 2 just it. I needed the 0 gauge. lol. I really want to stretch again, but I know that 00 will irritate me, so I need to find another piercing. lol. I stretched my 2nd and 3rd holes to 10 and I know I can't go higher or the ocd will kill me. ha
Oh check ebay for cheap jewelry. That's where I get mine. I know I bought dichro pyrex for like 20 bucks, but they're retail at least 50.
Ruthie, I have. I intend to take good care of my body so that when I am 60, I am not falling apart at the seams. I do not think that it will be too irregular to see people my age, from my generation, wandering around with piercings and tattoos and all that still when we turn 50, 60, 70 years old. Times do change, and things like piercings have become far more acceptable.
Then, Charlotte, you go for it all the way. This country needs all the strong-willed women it can find to get everyone through the rocky days ahead of us.
More power to you that you are one who can stand out in the crowd and say here I am--listen to what I have to say! I, on the other hand, will be in the background, with a smile on my face doing what I do.
Stacie gave me this idea of starting a thread about being grateful.I had a great friend who was very very wise. At a low point in my life he asked me to follow in his footsteps. He showed me a cedarchest full of little...
