We got a puppy!

His name is Pikachu.  Yes, like the Pokemon.

You can read more about him here if you're interested in puppy talk.  lol

And yes, I double blogged about it... but this is one of those things that require a double blog.

Cauliflower ear .... Don't do it!

I recently reviewed my stat tracker, and a surprising number of people have come this way by Googling various cauliflower ear phrases.  The two that stood out to me, were “I want cauliflower ear” and “Do girls like cauliflower ear?”

I know it’s not my business what you do with your ear, but my unwanted two cents on the matter are simply… 

Please do not permanently disfigure your ears.  I would equate purposefully giving yourself cauliflower ear to giving yourself a grotesque, 3D tattoo on your face.  It will never go away.  You will regret it when you are older.  It does not make you look awesome.  Girls do not like it… well, at least not this girl, nor any other female that I’ve ever spoken to on the matter, and it would seem that girls who do not themselves fight have no idea how people get cauliflower ear.  So, any impression you were hoping to give about being an awesome fighter will be all but lost on them.  Besides, if a girl does like cauliflower, and chooses to date you based on the fact that you have it… Well, let’s just say I wouldn’t base a relationship on something as earth shatteringly deep, as cauliflower ear.  Don’t do it.  Please.  Your mother will thank you.  

And to those of you who came this way wondering how to drain your ear, or how often to do it, I can point you in the right direction…. Georgette's World This information worked well for me.  I had some fluid buildup in my ear, and by following these instructions, my ear is very happily free of deformation.
