    Ah, but you can claim a new form of religion called Hindruidism. That should work. It takes the dress of Hindus and the religion of the druids and combines them.

    (my imagination is running rampant today. I think its a direct rebellion of the logical process of statistics, so the part of my brain that is not logical has decided to rear up and go crazy making stuff up. With the exception of the Swami/harmonica/buckskin funeral story in the troubles thread. That one is totally real)

    We have daffodils!!!!

    HOwever, I'm not holding my breath for this being the definitive end of winter. In 2007 we had a hard freeze Easter weekend (April 8) and last year we had snow at the end of Feb. and a freeze in March.

    But it has been a milder than normal winter and we do have daffodils, so I'm going to enjoy them while I can.

    I'm thinking maybe you should take some pictures of those daffodils and share with the rest of us who won't be seeing such a welcome sight of spring until well into April

    I actually saw my crocuses (crocusi????) peeking out of the ground the other day and got all excited. But today it's in the 20s. I think it's that stupid groundhog's fault.

    I'm late to the tats and peircings conversation, but it sounds like I'm truly the odd one out here-- no tats, no piercings. I wanted to get my ears pierced when I was around eight and everyone was doing it, but my mom put her foot down and said that I couldn't do it until I was sixteen. Well, by that point, ear piercings were no longer the latest fad, and so I never bothered. Plus, a few of my friends' earlobes have ripped, and I didn't want that happening either.

    As for tattoos, again, never really had the desire. And I know I would get tired of it, and want it gone that instant, and clearly that's not happening.

    I got my ear lobes pierced due to having minimal lobes, which meant that I could not wear clip-on earrings...and they hurt, all to heck, when I tried to wear them, anyway. I do adore earrings!

    Well it's supposed to snow this weekend. So daffodils and snow.

    I've had my ears pierced for 34 years and no rips, but I don't do a long of dangly earrings either which is where I think most rips come from.

    Dangles are OK as long as they are not heavy. I hate the French hooks. I have a pair of earrings that look like they weigh a ton, and a man even commented on their size (we were at a holiday dinner with a lot of people at a long table; we're talking about 15 years ago, mind you) and how heavy they were. I took one earring off and passed it across the table to him and his daughter; despite how they looked, they were about the weight of cooked (baked?) meringue. Shut that clown up, with a quickness! He was rather rude, to say the least.
