I'm becoming a fan of the henna tattoo. It is temporary, yet, if done well, it can last a few weeks.

Wow- I'm speechless.
"Apparently on her 6005th piercing......a super friendly lady who's well up for a spraff and a pic!."
Okay, having recovered my speech, this is just amazing. I have six piercings, and that's about it. I *might* get one more.

Some interesting info and common sense advice re. piercings.
"A little bit of swelling and a tiny bit of blood when I took the saline compress off, but no pain, really. The only time it hurt so far was when I answered my phone with the wrong ear (and at the same time dropped a strawberry with the other hand, causing me to slam the phone into my ear...). If you didn't know, the latest suggestion for cleaning your piercing is not to use anything anti-bacterial. I've gotten piercings through the time of cleaning with rubbing alcohol, watered down bactine (that's what Claires still uses, I think...epic fail, Claires), bacitracin (to keep the piercing moist so it heals quicker) and now, the all-natural saline solution. It's the same stuff you use in a neti pot, if anyone out there cleans your nose. The idea is that you want to clean with water, but your skin rejects water (if you've never noticed, water beads on your skin rather than soaking in. If it soaked in you'd become hugely bloated every time you showered and you would die of dehydration because your body would not be able to process water.) What saline solution (1/4 tsp sea salt, 1 cup water) does is changes the pH of the water so your skin accepts, rather than rejects, the water. In this way the water can slip through your piercing and clean it without triggering any rejection processes. This helps keep the area from infection, jewelry rejection, and other trauma more than regular water would. Cool, right?"

Since I saw the Black Eyed Peas yesterday at Bumbershoot, I couldn't resist this image I found:
"Check out the brand new promo pics for the Black Eyed Peas, in support of their upcoming album "The E.N.D". They look so digital don't they?"
Yesterday we went to Bumbershoot, which lived up to it's rightful name - rain for the first time in about 5 or 6 years, or so I'm told. Nothing an Australian hat and a raincoat wouldn't cure.
Was able to see the Black Eyed Peas during the day, and enjoyed them quite a lot.
Okay, so this wasn't this year, but I liked the photo, and the "look."
""Joss Stone exploded onto the music scene in 2003 with the release of her multi-platinum album Soul Sessions. Still only 20 years old, Stone has already sold more than 7.5 million albums and garnered four Grammy nominations. Her electrifying mix of vintage soul and '70s-style R&B has earned her opening spots for acts including The Rolling Stones and the late James Brown. Stone's latest album, Introducing Joss Stone features collaborations with Common and Lauryn Hill and debuted at Number Two on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 list."
