"ehhhh. i'm sorry. i need the judge's ruling on this..."

(that's from "when harry met sally," by the way. best movie of all time.)

ok, so i've wanted to get my nose pierced for a long time. i have a cute nose, i think. i think it'd look good. but of course landon doesn't want me to do it. and i like to think it's because he needs a white-bread little youth pastor wifey. (he also has reneged on permission for me to get a tatoo, too. i know it's because he doesn't want a rebel wife in the ministry.) but he insists that isn't it. he said it's because it looks slutty.

i completely disagree. he says when he sees a girl with a stud in her nose, he automatically thinks, "slut."

i think that's terrible, first of all. second of all, i don't think that's what the majority of people think. maybe when you see a tongue ring you think, "slut." but a nose ring? that doesn't even make sense!

here's a picture of "the wreckers." (thanks, nat, for turning me on. i really like "stand still look pretty.") the one who's not michelle branch has her nose pierced. look here.

do you automatically think, "slut?"

i need feedback here, people.

okay i wrote a post last night but i think the devil in my laptop ate it...

I take extreme offense to the notion that tattoos or peircings are "slutty." I personally have a tattoo that remains hidden to 98% of the world. It represents the holy trinity and a time in my life when i felt fearless and independent and the most me. Is that slutty? I think not.

Now I will admit they are a matter of personal preference...yours, not anyone elses. So if a tattoo or a piercing doesnt affect your health (as in dont get it in Mexico) or your job (as in violates company policy) then go for it. It is your body and your life. As I tell Damion all the time, "you're not the boss of me. I am the boss of me."

I personally am ready for tattoo number 2. and I personally think you have a super hot nose deserving of some bling.

I might side with your husband on the tat, but I kinda dig the tiny nose stud. Kinda hot.
