Friday Five:

1. Do you wear any jewelry? What kind?
Earrings (3): small silver hoops. Rings (2): chunky silver flower ring on my left hand, ND class ring on my right. Watch: silver Swatch on my left wrist. I’ve also got an assortment of random beaded necklaces and stuff that I break out on special occasions.

2. How often do you wear it?
The only ones I wear 24/7 are the earrings, because I can’t be bothered to take them out. That’s why I like these; they go with everything and I don’t have to give it any thought. I wear my rings when I remember, except for random times (like now) when for some reason my class ring gives me a rash. I used to wear my watch all the time, but I got out of the habit when I got the iBook last year (the wrist rest area made it awkward).

3. Do you have any piercings? If so, where?
Three in the ears: one in each lobe and one in the right’s top cartilage. (Me: “What’s this part of the ear called?” The Snook: “The top bit?” Exactly.) I’ve also had my navel pierced twice, neither of which worked out. Take heed, future piercers! For my navel is now all wonky. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

4. Do you have any tattoos? If so, where?
Yup. I got it a few days before my 20th birthday. It was my last act of self-destructive teenage rebellion. It’s the Korean word for “rite of passage” and it’s on my lower back on the right side. My jeans usually cover it up. It’s just black ink, though lately I’ve been toying with the idea of somehow adding some color. There’s a tattoo parlour around the block from our house with some great designs in the window.

5. What are your plans for the weekend?
Saturday the Snook, Steve, and I will be at the Sydney Cricket Ground all day watching the Aussies take on the Poms. After that we’re supposed to head over to Kenya’s for “Poker Night”. (As I suck at poker, however, I’ve instead volunteered to sit out and play “Beer Bitch” all night.) Sunday will be our last day of vacation, so I’ll probably just watch the cricket and finish up Moire’s scarf.
