I had, at one point in the past, spoken out against facial piercings and gauged piercings.
I have recently been doing some research on Indian (surprise!) jewelry, and both a nose piercing and gauged ear piercings now seem like a good idea. I was perhaps hasty in my angry ranting.
I am often hasty in my angry ranting.
Anyway. The opening visualization for the new Beatles Rock Band is really, really beautiful. It captures the feeling I felt as a 13-year old, discovering the Beatles for the first time:
I gots me goosebumps.
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
I have both nostrils pierced and my ears stretched (and apparently now if you say “gauged” in the piercing community they beat you about the head… the term is now “stretched”.. I didn’t get the memo either).
I first pierced my nostril because I loved the way it looked on Indian women and I got the other nostril pierced later because I liked the idea of being able to wear 2 rings and have it be symmetrical.
