pinkie pie

holes in my head

Had my ears pierced today at 8ga:

8ga pierced ears

(ugh must clean up neckline)

I was going to wait at first, but nyxie was getting her nose done today, and while I was waiting in the lobby of Yonge St. Tattoos I asked the girl at the counter a bunch of questions and convinced myself to just go ahead and do it. I need more spontaneous and less planned and researched anyhow.

Robin did the piercings and was great, very careful to explain the precautions and procedures and just generally friendly. I'll definitely go back there for stretching and any other holes i might want. The actual piercing went fine, I felt a bit light-headed afterwards but a bit of reclining and a juice box (hee) took care of that.

(srl: thanks for pointing out that 8ga initial was a possibility.)

No big NYE plans tonight, just staying in with nyxie. We've got some horse doovers and a bottle of sparkling wine and a six of Dogfish Head IPA to get us through!

Hopefully ironically, Mom put a four-pack of green and red Twisted Shotz shooters in my stocking this year. We decided to try one just now. Ew. It tasted like warm freezie juice. AND it was only 20%, which means that the point isn't either the taste OR the alcohol content. Weird.

But then I looked at their website:

No no no no no.
