Jewelry for Nerds

Seeing these pairs of earrings makes me wish I hadn’t stretched my earlobes to 8 gauge rings I can’t remove by myself. That said, nothing beats Chef’s ears.

I’ve been cribbing off her for a couple of years so it’s about time I offer a shout-out.)

    You could always do that thing where you put grommets in and then put the earrings in. I have seen that executed successfully.

    Were they stretched that much last summer? Because I don’t remember that.

    I’ve done the eyelet/ear wire thing with really girly dangly earrings. It works pretty well.

    Aww, thanks!

    Those ear stretching things freak me the hell out, but I know a few people IRL who make borosilicate glass earrings and wear them- for which you do have to stretch your holes. Their earrings are so cute they almost kind of tempt me to do it. Then again…yeah, it does kind of mean your options are limited for wearing non-boro earrings.

    I got my book nerd husband some typewriter key cufflinks for our wedding last year. I out-nerd you all!

    (I also got him a video iPod, but was careful to give it to him after we had sex. Which was the right call, because he spent the rest of the night playing with it. )

    I really like the periodic table earrings. They are nerd-alicious. :)

    I am soooo tempted to buy a Help key necklace. I write software help professionally… XD

    Got ’em!

    It would’ve been impossible for me to resist.

    And now I can make jokes like, “I have to remember to put the right one in each ear, or else my head won’t validate, and I hate when that happens.”

    OUCH…looks like you could successfully hang Christmas lights from those holes, kinda like sticking the bulb out from the back like a Lite Brite!

    Or has it already been done?
