Go back to where you got it done (or any of your friendly local piercers), and ask them to help you put it back in. They've always done it for free when I had that problem. If they balk, buy a $10 piece of jewelry and ask them to put it in for you.

Spoilered for length: Nose ring insertion advice, and a related yucky(/funny?) anecdote.
Spoiler:
And nose-screws suck. I hated the way the curvy-bit at the end always turned around so it looked like I had a shiny metal booger hanging out one nostril. So I asked my piercer to snip a bit of the end off, then bend the end of what was left into a j-shaped curve. It was way easier to put it in myself after that. Then one day I woke up and it was gone. I assumed it had fallen out and gotten lost on the floor.

A few days later, while I was eating, I suddenly bit down on something hard. I freaked out for a second, thinking a filling had popped out--bracing myself for the stabbing tooth-agony that was surely going to hit me any second-- Then I fished my missing nose-stud out of my mouth. It must have popped out of its hole (from me rubbing my face in my sleep I suppose), then somehow fell into my nostril as I dozed on, oblivious; THEN, over the course of several days, slowly worked its way through my nose, down into the top of my throat (like post-nasal drip! eww!), and finally dropped into my mouth. I consider myself lucky I didn't accidentally inhale it into my lungs. ...Or swallow it and have to poop it out. Ouch. That could have been bad. *Sigh*. Oh, freshman year.

Umm, anyways... I swear by rings now. Except I lost mine and it's hard to find nose-rings that don't have that stupid bead on them (the dangly-metal-booger problem detailed above...).

The curvature can seem tough to insert, but with a bit of patience and finesse (and practice I guess), it becomes very doable. It's probably easier if your piercing has been completely healed up for a while, so it's not as tender or prone to swelling when you poke bits of metal around inside of it. The trick is to get your piece of jewelry most of the way in, then ease up a bit, and gently wiggle the end around (just a bit!) while you stick your finger in that nostril to feel for the exit hole on the other side. Don't poke too hard--insist a bit if you think you're close, but you probably won't have to force it unless the hole's started to close up.

Wow, I feel so graceful and ladylike after posting the above.


New Rant! Unrelated to household chores! (The homeless dude in the kitchen moved out! The slobby roommate and his slobby girlfriend have been out of state for the past 2 weeks! It's been glorious!)

So there's this adorable little girl at work (infant/toddler room, daycare). She's very sweet. Her mother is nice enough, I generally have no problem with her (although she's feuding with the room's Head Teacher for various reasons, some of which will become clear in a second). Except when I'm reminded that she seems to be completely fucking insane. I hope she never happens to see this, I don't want to stop being on good terms with her. But there is mounting evidence that she's a little bit batshit. I will leave most of that evidence (snippets of conversations, details of her life) out of this and just focus on the one major problem.

Get This. She can't decide what to name her baby. Not a baby-yet-to-be-born. The baby she already has, who is attending our daycare. The baby that emerged from her womb A YEAR AND A HALF AGO. :shock:

OK the explanation of this got longer than I expected, so spoilered-for-length again:
Spoiler:
This is not to say that the girl has no name. She has a name. She has many names! Every few weeks--sometimes, every couple of days--Her mom changes her mind, and decides on a different name!! :D It tends to be one of about a half-dozen favorites that mommy keeps switching back and forth from, but every now and then a totally new name gets added into the mix! I would list them, but I'm afraid that the mom might google the names one of these days, in her never-ending quest to figure out which one is really the right one for her child (and hence possibly find this post by accident).

Seriously. WTF. Apparently, just before I started working in this room last year, mom came in every other day insisting her daughter be called a different name than the one before. I was around for the latter half of this stage of events. The Head Teacher told Mom that we really couldn't call the girl a different name every day. We'd been just kind of sticking to the first, original name the girl arrived with (let's pretend it was "Lila"). I mean, I didn't really get what was going on, and of course I was just calling her "Lila," cause that's how I'd been introduced to the kid, and it's what was written down on the forms, bottles, diaper boxes, etc.

At one point, she seemed really-really-sure of a particular name (let's pretend this one is... "Rain"). She said she was filling out the name-change paperwork and all. So we complied, changed all the labels from "Lila" to "Rain", and tried to remember to use the new name instead of the one we'd gotten used to. As you can imagine, we occasionally slipped up and called the girl Lila. When Mom was around to hear any of these slip-ups she'd get offended.

When she continued trying to change the name on a frequent basis, the Head Teacher put her foot down and said NO, WE REALLY REALLY CAN NOT CALL YOUR KID A DIFFERENT NAME EVERY DAY. So Mom got righteously PO'd that we weren't respecting her wishes, she thought we were questioning her competence as a mother, etc. She complained to the Director on numerous occasions. Eventually Mom, Head Teacher, and Director had a sit-down to establish the following: YOU can call your child whatever you want to, but for daycare, you need to pick a name and stick with it. They had her sign a statement that said (more or less) "At daycare, my child will be called 'Sunshine' unless I come in with paperwork showing that her name has officially been changed to something else."

So we switched the name-labels, etc again, and we've been calling her Sunshine ever since. And I keep thinking it's over, only it's not. Mom can still often be heard rambling about how she thinks the child doesn't really respond to Sunshine. And how the other night she was trying out different names, and she felt--on a spiritual or psychic level--that as it turns out, the child really wants to be called "Apple-Blossom!" ... etc... (my made-up names are more hippie-dippie than the real names, but... Not by a whole lot. Mommy used to tour with the Dead.)


So all the while, as far as we can tell, this little girl really only goes by "Sunshine"--which she HAS started to respond to, thxverymuch--at daycare, which she attends infrequently. At home, her name is whatever "feels right" to Mom at any given moment. For fuck's sake! Oh, you don't think she really "responds" to "Sunshine?" MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HER FUCKING NAME IS!!! BECAUSE IN HER 19 MONTHS OF LIFE ON THIS EARTH, MOM'S CALLED HER SOMETHING DIFFERENT EVERY DAY!!! Our 13-month-old responds to her name! Heck, I think our 7-month-old responds to his name now! Because it's what people have called him, all day, every day, ever since he popped out of his mama! Because that's the way it's supposed to be fucking done! AAAAAAAAGH!

Yeah. I generally get along fine with her, but when I remember all this... I get this sudden urge to steal her (sweet, charming, and probably very confused) little girl away with me when I leave town next month. Because if this doesn't stop soon, I suspect that cutie pie is gonna wind up with some major issues! Fuck!

Edit: Hey! Actually, does anybody know of any experiments/studies/tribal naming customs/case studies/news articles/etc that might be related to this? I mean, anything about what the long-term psychological and social effects of not having a name for the first x # of years of their life? Surely there are similar instances, maybe even obscure cultural precedents?

So what? You don't get to decide how she should or shouldn't name her daughter.
Maybe she's doing the Big Daddy thing: letting the kid decide what she wants to be called.

How? How the hell did you do that? So you tell me to get a b on the last piece of coursework and you'll enter me for the higher paper. Okay, I get a b. Next time I see you you claim you told me to take a mock exam, you're lying but fine; I can't deal with getting a C so I'll do what you want..

Now, I made special arrangements so that I could do this damn test and you were away, without even saying anything. I get that you had some issues but time is of the essence, the deadline has already passed and now you're taking time off.

I gave up.

I decided I could live with the C. But then I'm advised that really, I cant. I never did the test and it's too late. So a letter was written. Suddenly, an email appears in my mum's inbox, saying I did well on the test and the paperwork for changing my entry has been on the relevant desk since Tuesday.

Bull! I know damn well I never did the test, it's sitting unwritten on in my living room right now. You moved me up because you bloody know you've been downgrading me out of spite. You got told off by your boss on Friday and started covering your tracks. Still, you've done what I wanted, so I can't turn around and tell people you're a liar.

Gods I dislike you! sometimes.

Really? You don't think this is potentially unhealthy?

I mean, the kid in Big Daddy is 5. There's a big, big difference between a five year old and a toddler--in terms of crucial developmental windows and whatnot. The very most basic structures in your brain are getting built.

Well, I don't know as much as I'd like to about the specifics. That's why I asked about studies or similar cases.

Can anyone else weigh in? Now I have to know. Are we really just overreacting?

I'm also interested in seeing any psychological studies relevant to this situation.
My point was just that as long as the mother isn't being abusive (and I doubt unorthodox child naming is abusive*), you don't get to be the parenting police.

*Perhaps I'm wrong about this. That's why I'm interested in seeing any relevant studies.

Yeah, until fairly recently, it was a common practice among the peasantry of the Western world to not name kids until they were 5 or so, due to the frequency of death. Or so I hear. I'll find some links or something to see if that's some myth I've heard or if it's factual.

Rant:

Just spent some time with a few thirty-something acquaintances, and the conversation drifted towards someone's medical problems. The solution they are pursuing for their issue is NHS funded acupuncture. NHS funded.

They then discussed how good it it that you can get such a wonderful, side effect-free treatment on the NHS.

When I mentioned that acupuncture is controversial at best, and at worst totally unsupported, and that the millions spent on it might be better off spent, say, training nurses and surgeons, they actually laughed and dismissed my point of view saying 'yeah, you would think that because you're into science', as if being 'into science' is itself an irrational view, and that LIVING IN THE FUCKING REAL WORLD AND PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT IS TRUE IS NOW A MINORITY VIEWPOINT.

Rant: Someone call the Child Abuse Hotline. New York's anti-Smoking campaign has always been known for its disturbing ads (which are supposed to scare you into quitting), but they have crossed the line.

Don't watch this if you don't want to see an extremely scared and upset small child be exploited for television.

Acting? Fuck that. He's four. He's either really upset or the best damn actor alive.

It's sick. This advertising campaign upsets me almost as much as the SIDS ads a few years back. Why the fuck would you fill the buses and subways with posters reading "We put Johnny to bed one evening a week after his ninth birthday. He never woke up." blatently in the faces of children just learning to read?

Oh man, I got that attitude so much when I was in high school. One instance I can remember was when we were discussing homosexuality in World Issues class. The question of homosexuality being genetically predisposed came up. After hearing a couple "Well, I personally believe..." type spiels from the more religious students, I said something along the lines of, "Either it's genetic or it's not, it's a matter of fact that can be determined scientifically, and as far as I know the jury is still out". I got torn into by most of the class for being "biased toward science" or something. Then, one girl retorted, "What if you don't personally believe in science?". WHAT YOU "PERSONALLY BELIEVE" HAS VERY LITTLE BEARING ON REALITY!

Second. See: My high school's "College Biology" course's evolution unit.

Instead of being taught the science of evolution in a science course for college credit, we were assigned an essay on whether we believed in evolution. I had so many objections to this, on top of being told, by a teacher, I'm going to hell for not literally believing in Genesis. I'm going to try to find that paper I wrote... (No luck) Anyway, it was mostly a huge veer off the topic into why I thought it was inappropriate to bring up biblical creation in a science class, and that if the teacher wanted to talk about creation theories in a science class, he needs to present more than one (I think pastafarianism was mentioned).

And then the essays by the other students... argh. All copypasta'd from fundamentalist websites that WROTE ARTICLES LIKE THIS, YOU AGENT OF SATAN. That was when I truly realized the extent that reality can be ignored.

I have decided on a numbering system to identify women by their sheer craziness. It'll be a sliding scale of 1-100 starting with perfect, and running the gamut all the way to BATSHIT CRAZY. I came up with this idea as I was trying to sleep on the couch at my date's house while she and her ex shared the bed. At that point, the night had progressed too far, and I had consumed way too many frosty beverages, for me to even be coherent enough to think about driving. Also, one night has managed to turn my favorite warm weather activity (BBQ) into a dreaded chore.

As an addendum, if you make your date sleep on the couch while you have a drunken hookup with your ex, have the common courtesy to not text him the next day after he deliberately left before you awoke and the awkwardness blossomed into full wtf-ery.

I'm just saying....

You're disappointed in her? She's constantly disappointed by you! But when have you ever done anything but focus on her flaws? Buttering her up with a false compliments, designed to be used against her the second she does anything to upset you precious ego, so you can unleash and batter her with your moral superiority. Then to have the gall to use the "I get mad because you aggravate me into losing my temper and screaming you down with my moral indignation" excuse, whilst putting on this act to make people think you're just long-suffering and that you couldn't possibly be the type to scream down a girl right in her face or shake her and grab her when she ignores your attempts to berate her.

Stay away from my friend, you don't deserve her. She can do better.

Today at work, this foreign man, I think he was Pakistani, came up to me and gave me a lecture about how I'd never get anywhere in life because I have a nose piercing.

I mean, WHAT THE FUCK?

Sure, you're entitled to your own opinion, just don't try and shove it down my throat! And I'm sorry for telling you I disagreed. But you didn't have to call me a whore at the top of your lungs in the middle of the Target shoe department. Was that really necessary?

Unrelated rant: You. Yeah, you. I'm sick and tired of your shit. So fuck off with yourself.

He stormed out after berating another girl about her eyebrow ring.

No, you know what? I don't actually mind if you blow us off halfway through the evening so you could go out to an impromptu dinner with your family, what I mind is you putting on a face about it and acting all put-upon. You can just say "no, I'm busy", but you didn't, because that would be standing up to your mother, wouldn't it, and god knows you'll never be able to do that. Not even when she calls the woman you dated for almost two years a gold-digger and a bad influence. You didn't say a damn word in my defense and I'm still angry.

I can't tell you that, though, because I'm too busy trying desperately to put out the fires on all these bridges you're setting alight by sheer stupidity. Gah.

Yeah, they really do. I also get things thrown at me on a regular basis. Ah well.

Now if I ever buy shoes in Queensland I'll have to ask "Are you known as Schumi girl anywhere?" And if yes throw something as a test.

Wow, Schumi, that's awful. I find it hard to believe that those people will be able to get very far in life with those people skills.
Just FYI, the guy isn't avatar isn't me. But he seems pretty cool.

Sorry sorry sorry.

Let me rephrase.

People don't throw things at me because I have a nose piercing. They throw things because the shoes they want aren't in their size, or I won't let them refund something.

Sorry if that was a misunderstanding.

On the plus side, I have amazing reflexes now.

Meh, the point still stands. That is no reason to throw things.
