With a rebel yell

I get grand ideas all the time, usually that I pursue with ardent passion for about a week before I either get bored or find something I like better. Whenever I stay on one thing for longer than a few weeks, it's a pretty big deal. So a few months ago, when I decided I wanted to get my nose pierced, I did all the research, surveyed friends and family and found a "good" place to have it done. I even went so far as to buy eyelash glue and rhinestones to model what my new bling would look like.

I told everyone I knew that I was going to get this done, and for the most part was greeted with an eye roll. I asked the hubbs why people would respond that way.

Me: I just don't get it. I'm hip. I'm cool. I can pull that look off.

Hubbs: Um, you're not that cool.

Me: What do you mean, I'm not that cool?

Hubbs: People who are cool enough to get facial piercings don't announce to everyone that they are, in fact, hip and cool.

Me: Whatevs, I'm going to do it and I don't care.

Hubbs: Sure.

Fast forward a couple of days, and the hubbs and I are out running some errands. I'm fighting an internal battle over whether I'd rather go for pizza or burgers for dinner, when the hubbs makes a detour and we stop in front of a pretty popular tattoo parlor. Apparently, sick of my talk, my darling husband decided today would be the day I would walk the walk.

Never one to back down from a challenge, I summoned my nerve, held my breath and got stabbed through the face with a giant needle.

It freakin' looks awesome.

A foray into the blogosphere?

I've been toying with the idea of starting a blog for a while. I like to write, I like to be witty, and nothing makes me happier than reading witty things I've written. So even if it ends up that this is only for my amusement, well, at least one person's laughing.

To start it off, here are five totally random things about me:

1. I love cherry flavored anything, but I HATE cherries.

2. I'm really good at guessing what time it is, usually within five minutes.

3. I love to talk, but I am not a phone person. At all.

4. I own at least four feather boas.

5. Even though I've been married for almost a year, I still sometimes forget to sign my *new* last name.
