According to my stats thingy, a whole bunch of people viewed my blog yesterday. A lot more than usual...
This means one of two things:
1. My stat counter's gone mad.
2. A lot of new people have, somehow, found my blog.

The second option has kinda given me a bit of writers block.
So, today, I'm just going to give you this:

I love the idea that Mary gets to be a horse! It's so sweet.
Go Mary!

a life-altering day

Ok, that's maybe an exageration, but...
Yesterday was the one year anniversary of getting my lip pierced!

It's been a year of piercings and tattoos, although not as much as I'd have wanted as I realise I need to pace myself a bit. I'm only planning on getting 3/4 tats (as I'd at some point like to get a proper grown-up job) so if I get them all now the fun will be over too quickly.
Thinking of getting another piercing soon though.

You're a headcase with a smile

My head feels like it's filled with treacle.
I also feel kinda like I have a brain freeze.
You know like in the summer, when you get a mocha frappuccino with  whipped cream and because you're so hot you drink it really quickly and suddenly your head feels like it's filled with shards of glass?
So basically my head feels like it's filled with treacle and shards of glass.

I think it's a combination of sleeping late 4 days in a row but actually on average not getting many hours of sleep each night. That's my diagnosis.
I haven't been sleeping well lately. A couple of times each week or so I get a decent nights sleep, but mostly it's the usual: can't fall asleep and when I finally do I wake up several times in the night. To top it off I have, for some reason, started waking up around an hour before I have to get up in the morning. Which sucks. Because you know that if you eventually manage to get back to sleep your alarm will go off straight away, making it even more difficult to get up.

I have no idea what's brought on this current bout of insomnia. But it's exhausting. I'm very tempted right now to have a nap but I'm fighting it because I know it will only make it worse. So instead I'm going to read about Alexander the great.

one thing you can do

I'm going to make a butterfly. Or maybe a few.
I'm making them for the butterfly project.
The Holocaust Museum Houston are collecting handmade butterflies for  an exhibition to remember the 1.5 million children who died in the holocaust.

I think you should make one too.

Yeah, thanks for the advice!

I hate things like this.

Thank you msn for telling me about the "10 surprising traits that scupper girls' chances"

I especially like number 8: Shyness
Confidence (not arrogance) is the one quality that scores more points than any other in the dating game.

Because if you're shy or lacking in confidence, what you really need is a list of all the things that are wrong about you. 

The only thing they missed out is the be yourself! which is usually the last bit of advice on these things.
So I guess they're not being hypocritical about the whole thing. Gotta give 'em that at least!
