...mums - it takes all kinds andrew and i thought this was a cool thing to do to mark (literally) getting engaged.
laurie, the burly hells angel who did them for us asked me if my mum was going to smack me when i got home, but in actual fact she wrote a very short poem about it for her creative writing homework...
'is it a sign of the times today
that a couple about to be wed
instead of wearing their hearts on their sleeves
wear them tattooed on their arms instead?'

...eww gross

a couple of weeks ago i was suitably fascinated/disgusted whilst listening to a formerly-obese comedian talk about his visit to a health spa in thailand. apparently he had been large all his life, but when his doctor tagged him 'morbidly obese' he decided that enough was more than too much and went to thailand to kick start his weight loss. he spent 2 weeks existing on juice and twice daily SELF ADMINISTERED colonic irrigations (he was actually pretty proud of the whole self-administered thing). then proceded to let me know that he was so fascinated/disgusted by what was coming out of him that he kept a photo journal ?!?
the point of the story being that last week while i was in hervey bay my sister introduced me to...relax, it's only ear candles, but after they burned down there was that same feeling of f/d as i unwrapped the base to see what 40+ years of slightly-above-average aural hygeine looked like.
i highly recommend them - its so fascinatingly disgusting. oh, and your ears are amazingly clear afterwards!
