  1. wow…that nose piercing debate was well, piercing. i have had a nose ring for years and have never thought it was considered a “slutty” thing. on the contrary, it accents my nose quite nicely. my lawyer beau even gave me one for christmas!

    however, i NEVER wear it to work, and usually only on the weekends. it doesn’t close, but the hole is hardly noticable. anyone getting that close to my face to notice is probably invading my space or knows me pretty well.

    it is a non-issue though…just don’t wear it at work, jeesh.

  2. Interesting re: the nose pierce debate. I wonder if South Asian women can get away with this at work because of cultural reasons, more so than other ethnic groups. Several of my Indian girlfriends have nose rings, but I don’t know how many of them take it out for work.
