almost 3 days ago [feb. 27th] I got a tattoo. it's still really raised above my skin. it just feels like a 3D sticker sitting on my skin. I know the healing process can take up to 2 weeks, but with my previous 2 tattoos after a day or so the 'raised' ink settled into my skin.

is this normal?

TQC, why do the fingers on my left hand freak out if I try to wear rings on them?

It doesn't matter which finger I put a ring on, the finger will start getting irritated, and will swell or go numb if I don't take the ring off. The type of metal the ring is made of doesn't matter either... they all irritate my fingers equally.

Am I going to have to wear my engagement and/or wedding ring on my right hand when the time comes?

Now that I'm thinking about it... are there any traditions you know of where the engagement and wedding rings go on the right hand instead of the left?

So, while at my friend's friend's house, the police got called on the neighbors (not by us). We watched paramedics take a person from an upstairs apartment in a straight jacket and strapped to a chair, and he was making these moaning wailing noises, and occasionally screaming (but not "in pain/scared" screams). He'd then laugh and laugh and laugh. At one point he was like "OHHH THE LIGHTS ARE SO PRETTY!"

1) There's a Checkers right down the street from my house that, for the last few weeks, has had a sign up on their marquee that reads, "Taxes Toast blah blah blah 2 for $3" (blah blah blah because I get stuck on the Taxes Toast part). Do you think this is a) a mix up or b) a clever way to tie their food in with the awesomeness that is tax refunds? I'm not sure, but I am sad that I never have my camera when I pass it...

2) Assuming you sort your lights and darks, which load do you put anything grey into? If the loads are equal, I equally divide them up. If one load is lighter than the other, I launder them in with the light load to equal them out. Also, due to my obsessive compulsive nature, if somethings a lighter or darker grey, I will put them in the appropriate load, even though my husband thinks grey is grey.

I live in the dorms, and every month or so, they change the theme on this board. Last month, for Valentine's Day, it was "respect your body" and it had pictures of all different sized women, and a mirror and everything, and the themes are all very proactive and self helpish. This month is strong women. I am normally fully against vandalizing these boards, because the RAs work hard on them, and people do it all the time. But my question is...would it be wrong to tape Barack Obama's face over Hillary Clinton's? Or better question: would it be funny? I don't know if I am going to do it, because I always get so pissed when people deface the boards, but I think it'd be pretty funny.

best: it's march 1st. march mustache madness has started and by march 31st every man i know will have a luscious and equally sleazy 'stache. i don't know whether to be more grossed out or excited.

worst: girl scouts just came to my door to deliver cookies and i had no cash on me, or my checkbook, and they don't take visa OBV. i was inches away from having an entire box of samoas, or whatever this generation of girl scouts call them, in my stomach within minutes. it's my annual bit of heaven and i missed it. i hope they come back because when i was a girl scout years ago i would just keep the rest of the cookies. ugh.

Friends vs Music

I have an old friend, whom I used to know from school. We've been in and out of contact for years. We get on well and I always enjoy seeing her. She phoned me the other day (having got my mobile off Facebook, I only add people I know personally) and asked if I wanted to go out for a drink at the pub her brother runs on the 29th of March.
The problem is I have tickets to see one of my favourite bands on the same night. They are relatively new and I've never seen them live before. They are also coming to the town where I live, which means I can hang around for as long as I like and maybe get to meet them.
I'll get to see her again soon but the band I probably won't and will have to travel if I do go and see them again, plus I've wasted £20 on a ticket.
So do I dump the friend and see the band?
Or miss the band and see my friend?

Fragile - Handle with care

You have been in a relationship with someone you love for 4 months. The L word hasn't come up before, though. One night, after a fair bit of drinking on both of your parts, they turn round and tell you that they like you a lot, but they're not in love with you. You're not the one they want to marry, and they're at the age they want to think about that stuff. But they don't want to break up with you now.

What do you do?

teeth

I knew this women who, in the span of a month or so that I didn't see her, had her teeth suddenly turn almost black. When I did see her, she would try not to show her teeth when she spoke, but you could still see that they were almost black. They had been pretty normal the last time I had seen her, a month prior. She was in her 50s I'd say, if that's relevent...

good evening, TQC!

so, i'm considering dying my hair some ridiculous color, becuase I am a college hooligan with no job. It is practically my responsibility to look ridiculous. I will combine this with my graphic t-shirts, torn jeans, and creative belt buckles (i like my Hylian crest one) to create the slacker college rebel kid look.

question is thus: i have dark brown hair, which is quite thick and wavy. I would like to dye it either bright purple, dark purple, or dark blue. do i have to bleach my hair first? What if I don't? I know bleaching's real bad for your hair, so..... i'd rather not. really, i have no idea what i am doing. i just know what i want to do. what should i do. what kind of hair dye should i use?

also, any other tips would be welcome.

i love thee. ♥

second question, with no relevance:
