What I Hated the Least Today 187/365: Kitty Earrings

I have a new pair of kitty earrings. I thought you should know. I mean, they’re awesome. No one should be deprived of the pleasure of viewing anything cat related, especially when it’s cute without being too cute.

I think my earrings seek to represent the Siamese cat. It’s a slim, sleek and elegant breed. So are the earrings,ย as far as a cat-shaped accessoryย can ever be elegant. They are so light that I hardly feel the weight. That’s quite convenient.

I’m a fan of big badass earrings, and this stuff can beย rather heavy to wear. It can also get somewhat painful when it’s windy and the earrings keep on hitting your face. Not my new kitty earrings though. Here’s another picture. ๐Ÿฑ โค

      1. We always had both. When our last cat died we did not get another. And to introduce a new cat now that Tess is mistress at large in her home, may terrorise the poor little thing too much – the cat I mean. Tess thinks she’s huge, although in reality she’s smaller than most cats, lol !!

  1. Aww … they’re elegant! I used to be into โ€œbadass earringsโ€ too, but now it’s been a while. I have just a pair of diamond studs, and haven’t changed for ages.

    Saw a pretty awesome cat T-shirt being advertised in FB, and was almost a little tempted because the design was truly simple and elegant.

    1. Thank you! I like to wear bijou accessories because of how drastically they change one’s appearance without much extra effort. I always wear big earrings when I try to intimidate someone – usually clerks. Not sure how it works, but at least I’m trying.

      Much cat stuff is not very tasteful, so it’s hard to get something to my liking. When I do see something catty I like, though, I buy it automatically. Like these earrings. I’d love some cat T-shirts, but I haven’t found a design I’d like yet.

      1. It was a clever design … like two-in-one, somehow, like an optical illusion. It was an ad in FB.

        I once saw a pair of magpies as earrings (I really like magpies), and to this day I regret I didn’t ask the woman where she got them. But I didn’t …

        1. I always struggle with the temptation to ask random people in the street where the got their haircut, their earrings or their clothes, but I think that would be mildly creepy. I think I did ask once but the person didn’t remember.

          1. I do too — always hesitant. Here, in SJ, I think it would be very much appreciated and not creepy at all. I have done it, at times, and I remember the person in question, being slightly flattered …

          2. I’d probably be flattered too, if someone approached me inquire where I bought this or that I’m wearing. Of course, unless I’d make the person shut up before they could speak, as I’m out of patience with people begging for money and cigarettes. They ask me all the time because I use a bus/tram stop in front of the railway station when the homeless and the boozers hang out.

          3. I know all about that (boozers and homeless). For some reason, that’s beyond me, I think they’re drawn to me, in particular. I could be imagining things, though.

          4. Haha, I also imagine these people are particularly drawn to me, given my meek appearance. Also given the fact that I smoke in public, which draws people begging me for smokes. WTF.

  2. Haha,these are nice!
    They look exactly like ones Hilda and Zelda would wear! (you know, Sabrina the Teenage Witch)

    By the way, have you seen this vid? (Maybe you did,given its popularity):

    This couple is so hilarious, especially when the guy speaks English with his accent! And apparently they speak in Czech (according to the comments)!!

    1. I’m actually quite flattered by your comparison to a witch ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s very much the intended effect.

      Thanks for the link to the video! I haven’t seen it before. It’s so odd! It is in Czech – it nicely illustrates the incredible richness of Czech swear words – and the accents when they speak English are typical. Mine is not as marked as theirs but it’s along the same lines. The guy totally wins it though ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Quite snazzy. My ears turned into blimps when I got them pierced. Apparently, I am allergic to both gold and sterling silver. I, thus, will never know this pleasure. But I can admire them all the same.

    P.S.

    Did you know that all the gold mined in the world throughout all of human history would merely fill three Olympic-sized swimming pools?

    I have no idea why I felt prompted to mention that. Rather random…

    Cheers,

    1. Poor thing, that sounds gruesome! There’s really so little gold in the world? Hm. Weird. I’m no much into precious metals, I prefer bijou accessories that are precious in other ways – like when they take the shape of a kitten.

      1. It was dazzlingly gruesome, yes. And as thrilling as it was, similar to wandering through a slaughterhouse or the like, it is not something I wish to repeat- at the moment.

        I do not blame you. You have very excellent taste, I must say. I like wrist cuffs made from bent and melted silverware, but I never actually bother to buy the things. Perhaps that is better for everyone ๐Ÿ˜‰

          1. You must get them to complement your exquisite badarsiness. Wrist cuffs are indeed VERY badass.

            Tragically, I am not a BA but a wannabe. I am just too bumbling and oafish to ever pull it off effectively. I am saving for a rusty, gurgling heap of a motorcycle…I cannot imagine how much of a glaring boob I am going to look with it, but in my mind, I will be the ultimate, granite-faced badarse…as, at an intersection, in a tiny hiccup of wind, I tip over like a cow. Such is life.

          2. I’m a wannabe badass too. However, I’m working on self-improvement – today I made an appointment at a tattoo studio, as I had planned forever, to get something intimidating tattooed somewhere visible. I’m exaggerating. I’ll see how it goes. Now I’ll be contemplating the motorcycle idea, but I’m not sure that this one is for me. I’d prefer the wrist cuffs! Don’t get killed when you tip over on your motorbike. That wouldn’t be very badass…

          3. I look forward to hearing about your visit to the tat parlour. I want to get a minimalist tattoo of a small shark, but I can never decide on what species. Want to get it on one of my hand somewhere, I am thinking. Or wrist. Or who knows.

            I think you will like the wrist cuffs. They are awesome. I have a few that I have made myself. I also have a dog-collar but that is probably less badass and more asinine, which suits me. I made it out of a belt I wore in kindergarten- bad, bad days, kindergarten…I am still haunted.

            Ha…knowing me, I will survive bonking over while standing still on my motorbike…which is far less badass than dying.

            Blast.

          4. I have considered it, or a mako with that long, sharp, razor-wire tail. Then, of course, I have considered the hammerhead…so difficult to decide.

            Of course, spiked and polished- I can just picture it. ๐Ÿ˜€
